"A man this emptied and vacuated of self-conceit, these lines of natural pride, being blotted out, the soul is as a Tabula rasa, an unwritten table, to receive any impression of the law of God, that he pleases to put on it; and then his words are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge, Prov. viii. 9. then i say it is not difficult to understand, and to prove what is the good and acceptable will of God, Rom. xii. 2. Eph. v. 10. ----17."
