Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1864 edition. Excerpt: ...account of some transaction which he professes to have seen, you may think it not unlikely that he may have invented the story, or have dreamed it; but then if his account is confirmed by another, and another, of these men, who, you are sure, could have had no communication with the first, you then conclude that it must be true, because they could not have chanced, all of them, to invent the same story, or to have the same dream. And so it is, when you have a number of different marks of truth meeting together, as they do, in the Gospel history. Even if each of these, taken separately, had much less force than it actually has, it would be infinitely unlikely that they should all happen to be found united in a false story. These arguments, however, have been laid before you very briefly; and hereafter, if you will study them at leisure, and dwell upon them more fully, in your own mind, and in conversation with others, you will see the force of them still more and more. But though these arguments are enough to satisfy you that an ordinary Christian, who does not pretend to be a learned man, may yet believe in his religion on better grounds than the Pagans have for believing theirs, there are many other arguments besides, some of which are quite within the reach of the unlearned. In particular, what is called the internal evidence of Christianity, --that is, the proof drawn from the character of the religion itself, and of the Christian Scriptures, --is a kind of evi dence which you will find more and more satisfactory the more you reflect on and study the subject, if you endeavour at the same time sincerely to act up to the knowledge which you acquire, and to be the better for it in your life.
