Find if you can, beloved, one occasion in which Jesus inculcated doubt or bade men dwell in uncertainty.  The apostles of unbelief are everywhere today, and they imagine that they are doing God service by spreading what they call honest doubt.  This is death to all joy!  Poison to all peace!…  I have not much patience with a certain class of Christians nowadays who will hear anybody preach so long as they can say, He is very clever, a fine preacher, a man of genius, a born orator.  Is cleverness to make false doctrine palatable?  Why, sirs, to me the ability of a man who preaches error is my sorrow rather than my admiration.  I cannot endure false doctrine, however neatly it may be put before me.  Would you have me eat poisoned meat because the dish is of the choicest ware?  It makes me indignant when I hear another gospel put before the people with enticing words, by men who would fain make merchandise of souls; and I marvel at those who have soft words for such deceivers.
