Quoting Boston…again

Many professors desire to hear the causes of God’s wrath searched into, but they are not mourning over them; and truly it is most lamentable, that those among us who as so many Joshuas should be discovering the Achans in our camp, that are the troublers of Israel, but by a strange kind of dealing are very wary in meddling there-with, or to show them unto people. And it is much to be feared, that there are among us some accursed things that are not yet found out.- Thomas Boston

Wow. Over 300 years later, things have not changed. Woe to me if I ever find myself so enthralled with theology that I forget its implications.
