It is high time that the old tradition that the clergy, alone, ought to teach and spread religious knowledge should be exploded and cast aside forever.  To do good and diffuse light is a duty for which all members of Christ’s church are responsible. . .Christians ought to tell others that they have found medicine for their souls, if they see them ignorant and dying for want of it.  What does the apostle, Peter, say?  “As every man has received the gift, even so, minister the same to one another” (1 Peter 4.10).  They will be happy days for the church when that text is obeyed.  (pp. 26-27)
