“The rule is never to apologize for the truth. Never. When Scripture requires us to seek forgiveness or put something right, what we are putting right is our complicity in some lie or other. Lies must always be repudiated, and while it is certainly humbling, it is never strategically stupid. We are servants of the truth — how can it hurt us to get rid of another lie? Armies are not weakened by finding and hanging another spy in their ranks” (Rules for Reformers, p. 155).
