Raise the standard or suffer loss

“The man who lacks moral qualifications, intellectual ability, or zeal for his calling, degrades and disgraces the holiest calling on earth, and no denomination can ever prosper and ordain any blackguard, blatherskite, bigot, booby or baby, who gets up and says, ‘God called me to preach’. We must either raise the standard or suffer loss.”
J. H. Jenkins, in the Harvest Gleaner, November, 1896, p. 4
