As I think about what you just said; you are absolutely correct.
It also reminded me of an article that I think I read by CH Spurgeon (I think it was Spurgeon) that went along the same lines as what you said. I think it was probably on this site as well.
If you know of an article that matches that description; please post it.
The following is not what I am thinking of, but do you believe it might be appropriate?
