"Then I saw in my dream, that in the morning the shepherds called up Christian and hopeful to walk with them upon the mountains. so they went forth with them, and walked a while having a pleasant prospect on every side. Then said the shepherds, one to another: shall we show these pilgrims some wonders. So, when they concluded to do it, they had them first to the top of a hill, called error, which was very steep on the farthest side, and bid them look down to the bottom. so Christian and hopeful looked down, and saw at the bottom several men dashed all to pieces by a fall that they had from the top. Then said Christian, what meaneth this. The shepherds answered, have you not heard of them that were made to err by hearkening to hymeneus and philetus, as concerning the faith in the resurrection of the body. They answered yes. then said the shepherds, those that you see lie dashed in pieces at the bottom of this mountain are they; and they have continued to this day unburied, as you see, for an example to others to take heed how they clamber too high, or how they come too near the brink of the mountain." [P. 21-22.]
