Universalist Quote of the Day #245

“That the mind is capable of enlargement, that its perception of truth may acquire clearness and strength by continued exercise, and that we may advance in the knowledge of any subject of our consideration, in proportion as we study it minutely and extensively–these are facts, which few is any will feel disposed to deny.  They will certianly be admitted in all scientific concerns; and we can conceive no sufficient reason why religion should be made an exception to the general laws, whose operation is so apparent in all subordinate affairs.  Truth, we know, is the same yesterday, to-day, and forever; but the recipients of truth are not always in the same condition.”

–Rev. Edward Turner
