William Wilberforce, in Practical View of Christianity

My grand objection to the religious system still held by many who declare themselves orthodox Churchmen … is, that it tends to render Christianity so much a system of prohibitions rather than of privilege and hopes, and thus the injunction to rejoice, so strongly enforced in the NT, is practically neglected, and Religion is made to wear a forbidding and gloomy air and not one of peace and hope and joy.
