QUOTE (B.H. Carroll) – Dec 27

December 27, 2013

B.H. Carroll

“There never was a man in the world without a creed. What is a creed? A creed is what you believe. What is a confession? It is a declaration of what you believe. That declaration may be oral or it may be committed to writing, but the creed is there either expressed or implied.”

“The modern cry, ‘Less creed and more liberty,’ is a degeneration from the vertebrate to the jelly fish, and means less unity and less morality, and it means more heresy. …It is a positive and very hurtful sin to magnify liberty at the expense of doctrine.”

In honor of Benajah (B.H.) Carroll, the early president of Southwest Baptist Theological Seminary, who was born on this day in 1843.
