    that people have written to challenge and correct me about my stand.!is book contains the essence of these challenges.!ese are the same challenges that every Bible-believing, separatist Christian must learn to deal with.!ere is no part of the world so remote that the believers will not be confronted with this misguided thinking.   When Christians raise charges of heresy like Sven did against Mr. Young, ask them to define and defend their terms and to provide the evidence that this other individual has, in fact, satisfied that definition. If they can’t do that much, denounce them for defaming a fellow brother or sister in Christ.

    Heresy is any belief or theory that is strongly at variance with established beliefs or customs, in particular the accepted beliefs of a church or religious organization. A heretic is a proponent of such claims or beliefs. Heresy is distinct from both apostasy, which is the explicit renunciation of one's religion, principles or cause, and blasphemy, which is an impious utterance or action.   The early church had many challenges in regards to heresy, and they were very aggressive about making sure that they were still following God and not their own twists. Sometimes I don’t know that we in the church today are strong enough about opposing heresy today. They certainly still exist.

    The book of Colossians is about the supremacy of the person of Christ.

Indeed, He is “the image of the invisible God, the sovereign and preeminent one among all creation” (Col. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

In a timely corrective to this trend, renowned church historian Alister McGrath argues that the categories of heresy and orthodoxy must be preserved/5.

The book here meant is a volume of a certain size and unity; newspapers and manuscripts are not books, but serial publications intended to form a book when completed fall under this censure.
