Liberalism has no place in Christianity. And while there exists some gray area when syncretism occurs, there is little doubt as to the outcome. Those who flirt with integrating liberalism into Christianity might as well be flirting with a prostitute though married.

Proverbs 16:2, NIV

All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD.

Howard Felerpin

Since the death of the godlike author, any number of idols have been erected in his place under the names of diverse theological schools.

John Blanchard

Those who preach liberal theology are essentially robbers; they rob God of His sovereignty, Jesus of His divinity, the Holy Spirit of His ministry, the miracles of their credibility, Mary of her virginity, the apostles of their authority, the church of her history, and the new birth of its necessity.


The only difference between a sexual libertine and a theological liberal is a layer of clothes.

Francis Schaeffer

Historic Christianity and either the new or old liberal theology are two separate religions with nothing in common except certain terms that they use with totally different meanings.

C. H. Spurgeon

Many modern critics are to the Word of God what blow-flies are to the food of men: they cannot do any good, and unless they are relentlessly driven away they do great harm.

Eccl. 12:13b–14

Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.
