To adulterate the church is to pollute a well, to pour water upon fire, to sow a fertile field with stones.  May we all have grace to maintain, in our own proper way, the purity of the church as being an assembly of believers and not a nation, an unsaved community of unconverted men. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Jeremiah 51.51.
