The Re-Baptizers Annoyed Zwingli

So he wrote them-

“Hundreds of times I have said openly, ‘I beseech you by Jesus Christ, by our common faith, not to make any change rashly, but to show to all men by your endurance, if in no other way, that you are Christians, in that on account of the weak you bear things that by Christ’s law you do not need to bear.’ ”

Or in other words, calm down and let things develop naturally rather than forcing your views at the point of open warfare, you idiots.

You Aren’t ‘Entitled to Your Beliefs’…

When those beliefs are contrary to truth.  Your beliefs are subject to and subservient to the truth.  You don’t decide what’s true.  You are not the arbiter or judge of truth.  The truth pre-exists you and will outlive you.  Your task is to discover the truth and be obedient to it in thought and behavior.  Any belief not based in and on the truth is a false belief and therefore a lie.  And you are not entitled to propagate lies.  No, you are not entitled to your beliefs.  You are entitled to being truthful.  Nothing less, and nothing more.
