Charity is the end of truth

August 4, 2016

 

‘Pretend not to truth and orthodoxness against Christian love and peace: and so follow truth, as that you lose not love and peace by it; (as much as in you lieth live peaceably with all men).’ Charity is the end of truth: and it is a mad use of means, to use them against the end. Make sure of the sincerity of your charity, and hold it fast; and then no error that you hold will be destructive to you: but if you know more than others, and use your knowledge to the weakening of your love, you are but (as our first parents,) deceived and destroyed by a desire of fleshly, ineffectual knowledge. Such “knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.”

Richard Baxter and William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 5 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 138–139.
