When truth is trampled

There is a zeal for orthodoxy which is most unorthodox. There is a spirit that contends for the faith which is in conflict with faith. If men have lost their love, they will do more harm than good by their defense of the faith. Behind the denunciation of sin there must always be the tenderness of love if that denunciation is not to become evil in its bitterness. Behind the zeal for truth, there must always be the spaciousness of love if that zeal is not to become narrowed into hate. There have been men who have become so self-centered in a narrowness that they are pleased to call holding the truth, that the very principle for which they contend has been excluded from their life and service. All zeal for the Master that is not the outcome of love to Him is worthless.
