Isn't this fella promoting double standard?
I read this -- "Such a condition cannot but enervate the soul, relax the springs of the will, and prepare a people for servitude." as another way of saying "Obey God, not somebody else" or "OUR church is right, the others are wrong" or something.
When a kid grows up and leaves home, sure he'll change some. Anytime you leave home or move or get a divorce or a new teacher, you volunteer to deal with a whole new set of circumstances, and that's as significant a step as marriage. But there's every reason to believe you'll remember enough of your upbringing to get along. The most valuable thing a working person has to offer is their time and abilities - seems to me that every time you find a buyer for stuff like that, you're volunteering for a position of servitude. :)
