'Amongst the Jesuits they have a rule, that they who are unapt for greater studies, shall study cases of conscience.' Is this to be adopted among Protestants, and when a man is too brainless to succeed in any common calling, is he therefore to argue that he is called to the ministry? This mischievous notion fills pulpits, but it empties pews. The fact is, the very pick of our Christian men are wanted for a work

'Which well might fill an angel's heart,
Did fill a Saviour's hands.'
