Why Heretics Win Battles (John W. Robbins)

“Paul recognized doctrinal error quickly and acted swiftly to correct it. He wrote:

“But this [a problem over the preaching of the Gospel] occurred because of false
brethren…to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that the truth of the Gospel might continue with you” (Galatians 2:2-5). Paul did not put up with (“yield submission” to) error or those teaching error on the Gospel “even for an hour.” He was quick to recognize error and quick to correct it, so that “the truth of the Gospel might continue with you.”

“While his concern was doctrinal, it was not academic, for he did not tolerate those who were teaching error in the churches. He understood error, and he refused to tolerate the men who were teaching or abetting error in the churches.” (p. 2)
