"This is also abundantly proved by the Experience of all such, as being secretly touched with the Call of God's Grace unto them, do apply themselves to false Teachers, where the Remedy proves worse than the Disease; because, instead of knowing God, or the things relating to their Salvation aright, they drink in wrong Opinions of him; from which it's harder to be intangled, than while the Soul remains a Blank, or Tabula rasa."
— Barclay, Robert (1648-1690)
