Let us be obnoxious

If it be intolerance to cleave to the truth of God, then let us be intolerant. If it be bigotry to maintain that there is no development of Divine truth, but that all is complete in Holy Scripture (whether understood or not), then let us be bigots. If it be narrow-minded prejudice to deny that modern advance in science has superseded one point of Christian verity, then let us be obnoxious to these and even worse charges, rather than surrender the truth of God, rather than overlook that the true place of Christian love is to work by truth, and by upholding the plenary authority and inspiration of the Word of God.
Samuel P. Tregelles, from Defence of the Authenticity of the Book of Daniel
