Ecclesiastical Separation in the 18th Century

While thumbing through volume four of the Works of Augustus Toplady (1740-1778, author of the hymn, “Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me”), he related the following:

That excellent man the late Rev. Mr, Joseph Hart, made it his inviolable rule, not to let an Arian, an Arminian, or any unsound preacher, occupy his pulpit, so much as once. His usual saying on those occasions, was, “I will keep my pulpit as chaste as my bed.”

Works of Augustus Toplady, Vol. 4., p. 134.
