Fritz — Try the Spirits

While it is true that heresies are brought into the Church by the theological schools and the spiritual leaders, it is also true that it is the duty of every Christian in the church ‘to try the spirits whether they are of God,’ and ‘earnestly to contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.’ In doing this, Christians are not acting as ‘self-appointed leaders,’ but are doing what the Lord Himself in His Word asks them to do. After all, God will hold not only the spiritual leaders in the church, but also all the members in the Church responsible for the doctrines which are taught.
