A Minister Must be Learned and Godly

B. B. Warfield, quoted in Credenda Agenda, Volume 4/Number 5, p. 16

Nothing could be more fatal, however, than to set these two things over against one another. recruiting officers do not dispute whether it is better for soldiers to have a right leg or a left leg: soldiers should have both legs.
