Tacit Approval

“One may wonder why it is a problem to use a writer or speaker who differs from biblical beliefs and practices. For one thing, their presence gives them a position of honor to those listening or reading. People can look at them as deserving of their trust and fellowship, when in reality they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. The names that one has in one’s magazine (or pulpit) gives tacit approval to what that individual stands for. Additionally, even if a counter-article is given (which Christianity Today periodically would provide), the truth is blurred and a smorgasbord approach to biblical subjects and theology results.”
