Quotes to Consider:
Matthew Henry on Israel’s taking the ark into
battle: "Note, it is common for those that have estranged
themselves from the vitals of religion to discover a great fondness
for the rituals and external observances of it, for those that even
deny the power of godliness not only to have, but to have in
admiration, the form of it."
A. Alexander on catechism instruction:
"As long as this duty [i.e., catechizing] was faithfully performed
by parents, the darkness of ignorance and idolatry were prevented,
but as soon as it fell into neglect, error and vice must have been
the consequence … And what upon earth is so worthy of time and pains
as the knowledge of God’s Word, and the doctrines of his wonderful
love and grace?"
