"The things that put it to the proof whether men will prefer God to other things in practice, are the difficulties of religion, or those things which occur that make the practice of duty difficult and cross to other principles beside the love of God; because in them God and other things are both set before men together, for their actual and practical choice; and it comes to this, that we cannot hold to both, but one or the other must be forsaken."
Jonathan Edwards. "The Religious Affections." Dover Publications, Inc: Mineola, New York. (1746) 2013. p.350.
