ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the ethics of confronting heresy. He states that identifying heresy and falsehood is a responsibility, especially for those who have teaching and pastoral responsibilities. He explains that in making accusations, Christian leaders must make sure that the facts are examined thoroughly. However, one must refrain from accusing people because it is not Christian behavior.
