[The minister must be] a plain preacher, suiting his matter and style to the capacity of his audience (I Cor. 14:19). Some ministers, like eagles, love to soar aloft in abstruse metaphysical notions, thinking they are most admired when they are least understood. They who preach in the clouds, instead of hitting their people’s conscience, shoot over their heads. “The Godly Man’s Picture” pg. 154
