Excerpt from Christian Baptism: The Duty, the Act, and the Subjects

Religious controversy has its evils; but they are trifling compared to those which pertain to indifference to the truth. Error is the parent of division and sectarianism; and thorough, vigorous, persistent discussion is the only remedy for this evil, the only path to unity in truth. "Earnestly contend for the faith," is a Divine injunction. Truth never suffers in a fair contest. The strength of error is in concealment and quiet; hence it deprecates discussion, shuns the light.

Honest men love to state their doctrine, and urge their reasons, and have them assailed, tried, tested by vigorous combat. As they love truth more than victory, they are glad to see every fallacy exposed, every false position demolished, every error confuted, that they may not suffer the great misfortune of believing and defending a lie.
