“As high as I possibly can” by Jonathan Edwards

“I should think myself in the way of my duty, to raise the affections of my hearers as high as I possibly can, provided they are affected with nothing but truth, and with affections that are not disagreeable to the nature of what they are affected with.”

–Jonathan Edwards, A Treatise Concerning the Religious Affections, in Edwards, The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Vol. 1 (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1974), 238.
