But against that inattention by which known truths are suffered to be neglected, insipid language or sterility of imagery makes no pro vision; it may, perchance, instruct, but can never persuade. Now, although what Sturm says is very good, and very just, yet, as he wishes to lead us from the error of our ways to the wisdom of the just, it is necessary that he use every effort to impress upon our minds an earnest desire to follow him in his strains of piety and heavenly contemplations. He has many powerful obstacles to struggle against such as, the obstinate resistance of our own perverted and corrupt hearts, and the allurements and example of an ignorant and embru tified world, which will not listen to the voice of the charmer, charm he never so wisely.
