False teaching is like cancer. It begins in small ways easy to overlook. A bishop begins to teach heretical things and it’s easy to say, “Well, nobody is really paying attention and he’ll retire soon.” Or, “they are tolerating unbiblical behavior in that diocese – or that province – but it doesn’t affect us.” Standing up against false teaching is traumatic. It is costly, time-consuming, sometimes agonizingly painful, humiliating, and exhausting. But if the Church does not aggressively treat the cancer of false teaching at its early stage, it will grow, and it will kill the Body.
