     When J. M. Pendeleton first began preaching he endured a lot of criticism:
     "These preachers, Dr. Pendleton says, were not very 'complimentary' in their remarks about his sermons. One of them said, 'You certainly could do better if you would try.' Another said, 'You are scarcely earning your salt.' The criticism of another was, 'You say some pretty good things, but your preaching is neither adapted to comfort the saint nor alarm the sinner.' But the last straw (suited to break the camel's back, but didn't) was a remark by a layman, 'As God is omnipotent He, of course, can make a preacher of that young man.' It is gratifying to know that young Pendleton survived these discouraging criticisms and made a preacher of rare ability." J. J. Burnett
