Mere Conservatism Is Not Christian

by S. M. Hutchens

"In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." (Matt. 15:9)

Wherever orthodoxy struggles for life, Mere Conservatism appears to bind its arms, denature it, and make it look foolish. The good teachers of the Church must face the wrath both of those who would, through natural but depraved predisposition, alter ancient Truth, and of those who, on the other hand, will insist on mistaking for it what is no more than comfortably old.
