RePost: Richard Hooker on making charges

But the more dreadful a thing it is to deny salvation by Christ alone, the more slow and fearful I am, except it be too manifest, to lay a thing so grievous unto any man’s charge. Let us beware lest, if we make too many ways of denying Christ, we scarce leave any way for ourselves truly and soundly to confess him. Salvation only by Christ is the true foundation whereupon indeed Christianity standeth.

    But Hooker understood neither how dangerous an error it is, nor how easy it is to be led astray by false teaching. The stakes are too high to be over-careful.
