The third sort will acknowledge the Spirit, so will they the word and Scripture, but they think it is enough to read the word. He will say, I will sit at home in my chamber, and I will read, sometime of the old and sometime of the new Testament, and what will the Minister tell me in the Pulpit but I will get it here, and as for the opening up of this word, he will scorn it. This sort of men is very evil; and they will find in the end that the word read and not preached will do them little good.
