"It was the observation of the most learned King that ever sat on the
English Throne, that the cause of the miscarriage of our People into
Popery and other errors, was the ungroundedness in the points of
Catechism. How should those souls be but carried about with every wind
of doctrine, that are not well ballasted with solid information? It was the
ignorance and ill disposedness of some cavillers, that taxed this course as
prejudicial to preaching; since, in truth, the most useful of all preaching
is catechistical, This lays the grounds, the other raiseth the walls and
roof. This informs the judgment, that stirs up the affections. What good
use is there of those affections, that run before the judgment? Or of
those walls that want a foundation"

BISHOP HALL.
