Dead orthodoxy is a head full of knowledge but a heart of stone. Dead orthodoxy dots all the i’s and crosses all the t’s. Dead orthodoxy tithes the spices of the cabinet and goes through all the ceremonial cleansings. Dead orthodoxy can quote doctrine in its sleep. It rings all 5 bells of Calvin every time it opens it mouth. The confession of faith is correct and the preaching is pure. It holds “truth” high. Dead orthodoxy is solid in theology and correct in its soteriology. It looks at the face of Christ on the cross and sheds no tears. Dead orthodoxy is securely persevered in a block of ice.
