Excerpt from The Works of the Most Reverend Dr. John Sharp, Late Lord Archbishop of York, Vol. 6: Containing, Nineteen Sermons, on Several SubjectsI. To give some account of what is here meant by heresies.II. To shew how it comes to pass that there always must be heresies.III. To shew for what reasons God permits heresies, and what purposes they serve.IV. To make an application of the whole.I. I begin with the first point, What is meant by heresies. Now as to this, it is to be observed, that the word hereby is often to be met with in scripture; and sometimes in that sense in which it is commonly used by profane authors, when it imports no more than some considerable difference in opinion, or such a distinction of men as to their judgment, as makes them of a different sect from the rest they converse with. And thus christianity itself is styled a heresy in the 28th of the Acts, ver. 22. But then it cannot be denied that the word is often taken in a bad sense, and undoubtedly it is so in my text and besides the bare difference of opinion, or being of a different sect from others, denotes some great fault in the man that holds that opinion, or that is of that feet. Were it not thus, we cannot imagine that St. Paul, when he is reckoning up the works of the flesh, such as murder and adultery, and the like, should put in heresy among them, as he doth in the 5th of Galatians, ver. 20. Well, now the question is, What is meant by heresy, when it is taken in a bad sense, when it is made one of the works of the flesh?About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
