STRIVE with all diligence to keep out that monster unbelief.
It so dishonours Christ, that He will withdraw His visible presence if we insult Him by indulging it. It is true it is a weed, the seeds of which we can never entirely extract from the soil, but we must aim at its root with zeal and perseverance.
Among hateful things it is the most to be abhorred.
Its injurious nature is so venomous that he that exerciseth it and he upon whom
