Modern Preachers

“The modern preacher takes a few tablets of the doctrine  of  Christ, dissolves them in a gallon or two of sentimental rose water, puts a little of the solution in an atomizer and sprays the congregation to the tune of “sweet spirited” Christianity and the fragrance of a gentle life. If, by evaporation, the solution becomes too strong, he always has ready-made apologies and pink lemonade handy to revive any fainting that has been overcome by the strong dose. And he will thenceforth take special care not to teach anything definite lest he offend.”
