Our God is a jealous God, and requireth us to be zealous in his cause. If we cannot abide our own name to be evil spoken of, without great indignation, shall we be quiet to hear the name of our God defaced, and not declare any sign of wrath against them?

God loveth not lukewarm soldiers in the battle of faith, but such as be earnest and violent shall inherit his kingdom.
