Promiscuous Reading

In his classic 17th century defence of freedom of speech and expression - Areopagitica - John Milton wrote these words:

And this is the benefit which may be had of books promiscuously read.”

For example, when I was volunteering on the TFT speaking team a few years ago, I remember one of my colleagues being called a Pharisee - unfairly, I should stress! Rightly teaching what God’s Word says on ethics and godly behaviour can so easily cause this reaction.
