"THAT THE SOUL BE WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE, IT IS NOT GOOD."-Prov. xix. 2.

“To the most untutored mind the information Scriptural knowledge affords, is far
more full and precise than the highest efforts of reason could attain: as the morality
of the Gospel is more pure and comprehensive than was ever inculcated before, so the
consideration of its Divine origination invests it with an energy, of which every system
not expressly founded on it is entirely devoid."-ROBERT HALL.
