"All who are truly religious are not of this world; they are strangers here and belong to heaven; they are born from above, heaven is their native country, and the nature which they receive by this heavenly birth, is a heavenly nature, they receive an annointing from above; that principle of true religion which is in them is a communication of the religion of heaven; their grace is the dawn of glory, and God fits them for that world by conforming them to it."
Jonathan Edwards. "The Religious Affections." Dover Publications, Inc: Mineola, New York. (1746) 2013. p.43.
