Ignorance is the Mother not of Devotion but of HERESY.
Apostasy is the total and complete denial of the Christian faith. Heresy is more like the wolf in sheep's clothing. It nearly always is a distortion of the revelatory witness, maintaining an appearance of the truth while undercutting its meaning. Heresy distorts, re-interprets to the point of contradiction, or over-emphasizes one aspect of the mosaic to the point of reducing the faith to one dimension of it. Heresy is a caricature of the revealed faith.
All heretical dogmas are partial truths -- true in what they assert, false in what they deny or ignore.
