Excerpt from Spiritual Religion
The difference between this last kind of religion, and those alluded to above, is very apparent in examples of each. Who does net see a remarkable difference in piety between such men as Leighton, Baxter, Edwards, Brainerd, and Martyn, and the mass of those who hear, and are not supposed to dishonor, the Christian naine? Dr. John Mason Good, the distinguished and excellent author of the Book of Nature, said, on his death-bed, I have taken what unfortunately the generality of Christians too much take [have taken the middle walk of Christianity. I have en deavored to live up to its duties and doctrines, but I have lived below its privileges. The men first mentioned were not content to pursue what is here called the middle walk of Christianity. Their religion was strictly and eminently experimental and spiritual.
