Jonathan Edwards on Theological Colleges
"It may be thought I meddle in the affairs of theological colleges, yet I shall take the liberty of an Englishman (that speaks his mind freely in public affairs) and the liberty of a minister (who may speak his mind freely about things that concern the Kingdom) to give my opinion with respect to those societies — It appears to me that care should be taken, some way or other, that those societies should in fact be nurseries of piety. Otherwise they are fundamentally ruined and undone as to their main design and most fundamental end." Edwards, 4:510.
