Excerpt from Carolinian Herald of Liberty Religious and Political: Or a Testimony Against Attempted Measures, Which in Their Nature Are Calculated to the Establishment of Popery Among Protestant; In an Oration; There Are Also Other Subjects Inserted in This Little Work, Highly Interesting to the Lutheran Community

Inot only cause many suins of money to flow there from the various parts of the Union, bilt it would also fan the fires of the spirit of aggrandiiement. The mind of (carnal) man is such as to be delighted in something that makes a grand ap pearance, and that 18 denominated by high sounding epithets such as, a General Synod, a General Seminary, in a great Czty. Such a one has studied there, hence he must be a very great man. When a' certain resolution, which was adopted by the Synod of Pennsylvania, (on a majority of them, ) 15 consid ered, the reader cannot censure me tor entertaining the above ideas. It was resolved by said Synod, in 1815, That only such can be ordained pastors who have, for the space of three years, received a systematic education with an ordained min ister, and have made some progress in the languages. Zscc' Evangelical Magazine of 1816, page 11 If this resolution was not erroneously committed to paper, it bears symptoms of contracted views. Is there no possibility of acquir: 11g the no cessary qualifications for the office of the ministry, without studying three years with an ordained ministeri'. He must have mad some progress in the Languages. In which of them. How vague In the German and English, in any other 'of the modern, or in the classical languages. P No doubt but what the latter are intended, yet by no means specified. A wealthy person might afford to pursue this course, notwith standing he still might remain a coxcomb; yet because he has studied three years with an ordained minis: er, he 1s entitled to a pastoral ordination: whereas, the most illustrious genius, highly improved, and living 111 a remote corner, no ordained minister nearfhim, nor havi 119; the means to go far abroad, he cannot become a pastor, but must for ev er remain contracted in his usefulness. Why so. 9 Because he has not studied three years with an ordained minister. Is ti sthe spirit of Jesus. Or congenial to that of American patriotism, which 13 far te moved from proud, sanguine European nobility, adorning with Chaplets only such who distinguish themselves by their quali fications and merits, no matter how acquired or achieved? From this view of thmgs, it is safest to use every means of precaution.
