The Eleventh Commandment
The irreligious world has formulated an Eleventh Commandment. A breach may be made in any of the other ten, but ‘Thou shalt not be found out’ is more important than all. The religious world also has its Eleventh Commandment: ‘Thou shalt not differ in from standard teaching’. All else will be tolerated, but let someone discover something in the Word of God that does not fit in with the established orthodoxy, and he will be soon be made to experience the pains and penalties of religion. He may have ‘a visit’ or even be excommunicated, but certainly everything he now says or writes will be treated with suspicion. There really is very to choose between this ecclesiastical attitude and the Romanist inquisition!
