1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.…
Nothing is more common than to find even those who deny the authority of the Holy Scriptures, yet affirming, "This is my religion." Nay, even a Jew, a Spanish physician, then settled at Savannah, used to say with great earnestness, "Paul of Tarsus is one of the finest writers I have ever read. I wish the thirteenth chapter of his first letter to the Corinthians were written in letters of gold; and I wish every Jew were to carry it with him wherever he went." He judged (and herein he certainly judged right) that this single chapter contained the whole of true religion.
