“God never appears to be so truly great, so intensely holy, as when, from the pure energy of principle, He gives Himself in the person of His Son, to die, rather than that His character should be impugned.

“In all spiritual influence, God deals with us as rational creatures; not by superseding or suspending the use of our natural faculties; but by so quickening, elevating, enriching, and strengthening them, as to make them capable of greatly improved exercise.” – Rev. Samuel Miller (1769-1850) #oldprinceton #spirit #gifts #seminarylife gpts.edu/conference/
