Warfield contra Pietism and Rationalism

Extremes meet, Pietist and Rationalist have ever hunted in couples and dragged down their quarry together. They may differ as to why they deem theology mere lumber, and would not have the prospective minister waste his time in acquiring it. The one loves God so much, the other loves him so little, that he does not care to know him.

[B.B. Warfield, "Our Seminary Curriculum," in Selected Shorter Writings, 1:371. Bold added]
