Excerpt from The Character and Fatal Tendency of Puseyism, Defined and Exposed: Being a Course of Lectures Delivered in the Temperance Street Chapel, Toronto
There are few, if any, forms of error, but what have their counterpart in the earliest ages of our holy religion, and for which an effectual antidote may not be found in the Word of God. The great apparent diversity of deadly doctrines and practices which so bewilder the superficial enquirer, re solve themselves into a few simple principles, to the mind of the close-thinking man all false doctrine has its origin with the father of lies- all aﬂinity with such a fountain, must be evil in its nature and tendency-the tree ts known by its fruituthe course of the deepest stream is revealed by movements on its surface so the deep enmity of the fallen heart, and its close alliance With the great spirit of evil, are every, where visible in the counter currents, within and aroun which lead men away from the serene, simple, sublime and s doctrines of God our Saviour and by app ings through the eye and ear, beguile men into the subtle meshes of the net of antiquity, venerable establishments, eccle siastical and traditional authority and doctrine. But to us there is in religion one King, Priest, Sacrifice, Fountain of Salvation, Law Court of Appeal, and but one, Jesus Christ-and the glorious Gospel of the blessed God.
