Excerpt from Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy: A Miscellany
This Miscellany is composed of articles, some of which were written for special occasions, and some for the religious journals. While having this temporary reference, they relate to princi ples in theology and ethics which are eternal, and are vehemently opposed in the standing conﬂict between orthodoxy and heterodoxy. For neither of these is a new thing. Both run parallel with each other in this apostate world, from the begin ning. The history of mankind is the history of the contest between truth and error. Unfallen Adam was confronted with fallen Satan. When God incarnate appeared, the Tempter met him in the wilderness. The holy supernaturalism of the kingdom of Christ was beset by the demoniacal supernaturalism of the kingdom of evil in signs and lying wonders and the Man of Sorrows, through his whole life of benevolence and love, was obstructed by the powers of darkness. The regenerate church, from the first, has found an obstinate antagonist in the unregenerate world. Each kingdom has had its ﬂuctuations, but truth.
