Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #45

45. Resolved, never to allow any pleasure or grief, joy or sorrow, nor any affection at all, nor any degree of affection, nor any circumstance relating to it, but what helps religion. Jan.12 and 13.1723.

'what helps religion' probably translates to our modern day speech as, 'what helps my spiritual growth'. This seems a bit too strict or restrictive for my liking, unless I misunderstood it.

[Didn't get to finish what I started last year. So continuing. But, these resolutions start to be more difficult to understand it seems.]
