“Here is matter of great encouragement to the saints earnestly to fight against the enemies of their souls.

–Jonathan Edwards, Charity and Its Fruits in Ethical Writings (ed. Paul Ramsey and John E. Smith; vol. 8; The Works of Jonathan Edwards; New Haven; London: Yale University Press, 1989), 349-350.
