If our correspondent “B.” has occasion to apply to men of the world for a situation, we do not see how “faith is destroyed” by his furnishing such testimonials, as to fitness and integrity, as may be required. We should have thought that faith would be dishonored if he had none to furnish. We must meet the men of this world with that which they can understand. There are thousands, who can understand a testimonial as to fitness and uprightness, who would deem it an absurdity to talk about “faith.” We should consider a good testimonial to be a most excellent evidence of true faith—an evidence which most men understand very well.
