God's Religion is Spiritual!

    We need no altar, or vestments, or other paraphernalia.

    We preach the gospel, and exhort men to faith in Christ, and have no need of robes, and architecture, and rubrics, and ceremonies. All that may sound very pretty; I think it shamelessly infantile- to me it looks like a return to the absurd superstitions of the dark ages. I have no more reverence for their genuflections, performances, and theatricals, than for the incantations of an old hag who pretends to be a witch! There is nothing manly, much less divine, in the new-fangled Romanism.

    God's religion is spiritual, theirs is carnal and sensuous.
