Re: Buying Or Good Works
Whenever an 'us/them' mentality develops you find both sides stretching the truth (if not outright lying) about the other side in order to increase their own support. It happens in everything where there are two sides that have a strong, longstanding dislike of each other. Should Christians be above that? Of course. Are most? Sadly not.

For not only does sound reason direct us to refuse the guidance of those who did or taught anything wrong, but it is incumbent on the lover of truth, by all means, and if death be threatened, even before his own life, to choose to do and say what is right." ~ Justin Martyr
