It is clear that the preacher who satisfies himself with stimulating the natural sensibilities of taste & social affection has really done nothing toward his proper task [of stirring religious affections]; while he runs an imminent risk of deluding men with the vain counterfeit of natural emotions about religion, in place of true religious emotion.
[…]Â The pastorâ€™s character speaks more loudly than his tongue.
–R.L. Dabney – Evangelical Eloquence
