Ralph Venning: Consenting To Other Men's Sins - Consenting to False Doctrine

"Take heed of being partners in other men's sins when they are committed, as co-helpers of them: . . .(c) As consenters, giving consent to other's sins; . . .Consent may be given openly and notoriously by word of mouth.  Saul, afterwards Paul, gave his voice (Acts 26:10); his vote went with the rest, and he gave it with a voice, a loud voice.   If anyone brings false doctrine, and a man bids him Godspeed, this man is partaker of his evil deeds (2 John 10, 11).   When men say, as Jehosaphat did to Ahab, 'I am as thou art, and my people as thy people, and we will be with thee in the war' (2 Chronicles 18:3); when we thus give consent, it is notorious."  (Ralph Venning, The Sinfulness of Sin ppg 274, 275,  276, The Banner of Truth, 2001)
