Honesty and sincerity do not galvanize error into truth nor does unbelief subvert truth to the ranks of error. Some seem to think this. They assume that if error is honestly and sincerely believed in religion that it becomes truth and produces the same blessings and benefits. On the other hand, these same persons seem to think that if some truth is distasteful to them that all that is necessary to reduce it to the ranks of error is for them to avow an unbelief of it. This is the basis for the “I believe” and “I don’t believe” religions. Men assume that if they believe a thing, it becomes truth, and if they don’t believe it, it is error. God’s word is truth regardless or our attitude toward it.
