Who cries out against a hearty and uncompromising castigation of error

“I have never heard a man yet, thoroughly imbued with the Truth and love of it, cry out against a hearty and uncompromising castigation of error, as bitter and too severe.

Where men’s faith is weak, and their minds are full of uncertainty, and they are conscious that their own deeds will not bear the light, you will find them full of ‘charity’, and sensitively fearful of the corrupters and transgresors of the Word. They don’t want their feelings hurt lest it should do harm! The fact is they don’t want the Truth too plainly demonstrated, lest it should make themselves obliged to defend that of which they were not fully assured”
