Gone are the days of Luther and Erasmus slugging it out over the question of original sin. Today both men would be accused of being petty (for daring to split hairs over such theological minutia), mean-spirited (for daring to speak so forcefully in favor of their own position and against the other’s), and downright un-Christlike (for throwing around the word “heresy”). I have often said, “The Eleventh Commandment is, ‘Thou shalt be nice’ … and we don’t believe the other ten.” (Voddie T. Baucham Jr., Faultlines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s Looming Catastrophe , 132)
