A Pastoral Perspective on Heresies Old and New

My friend, Bill Haynes, has written an article for the most recent issue of Tabletalk which provides a pastoral perspective on the heresies of the eighth century.  Bill is the Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Somerset, KY and currently serves as a trustee of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.


  1. Greetings!

    On your recommendation I clicked over and read the article. I was disappointed that the article was not on 8th century heresies, but was on the modern problem of church shopping to find someone to tickle ones ears. The only discussion of heresy was a brief mention of iconoclasm, which, as many Christians know, the Church approved based on Christ’s incarnation.

    I think your buddy missed a better opportunity to teach some church history and still make his point. Many Christians seem to think that Church history starts around 1500.

    God bless…


  2. Timothy,

    Thanks for your comment.

    However, Pastor Bill’s job was not to inform about 8th centuries. His role in the issue was to provide a “pastoral perspective” by making application to 21st century readers. The article should be read in the context of the other articles in that months edition of Tabletalk for the proper perspective.
