A quote from John Macquarrie, theologian

John Macquarrie, who was born on 27 June 1919, and died last 28 May, was, with Stuart Robinson, the first to translate, in full, Martin Heidegger’s Sein und Zeit. He is more well known, though, as a theologian.
 
Echoing another one of the heavenly chorus, John XXIII, he had this to say about heresies:
 
“In the long run, the only effective answer to heresy, near heresy and errors of other kinds is for the church to show that she has a better theology than the person suspected of error.”
 
May he rest in peace.
