“Religious teachers, who know and love the truth, ought to be patient, showing all long-suffering and doctrine, dealing gently but faithfully with those, who oppose the truth, and giving line upon line, argument upon argument, and illustration upon illustration.  In short let them follow the exhortations so well given by Paul in his Pastoral epistles, and the example he has left us in several of his epistles, particularly in the Epistle to the Hebrews.  He never uses harsh language, nor seems fretful, but is always gentle, magnanimous and convincing.”–William S. Plumer “Hebrews” p. 397
