Christian: Professor Cannot be Neutral

Resource Toolbox

It appears that Themistocles, when a boy, was full of spirit and fire, quick of apprehension, naturally inclined to bold attempts, and likely to make a great statesman. His hours of leisure and vacation he spent not, like other boys, in idleness and play, but he was always, inventing and composing declamations, the subjects of which were cither impeachments or defenses of some of his schoolfellows; so that his master would often say, 'Boy, you will be nothing common or indifferent, you will either be a blessing or a curse to the community.' So remember, you who profess to be followers of the Lord Jesus, that to yon indifference is impossible; you must bless the church and the world by your holiness, or you will curse them both by your hypocrisy and inconsistency. In the visible church it is most true that 'no man liveth unto himself, and no man dieth unto himself.'
