The Church and State Responsible to Christ, and to One Another : A Series of Discourses on Daniel's Vision of the Four Beasts (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Church and State Responsible to Christ, and to One Another: A Series of Discourses on Daniel's Vision of the Four Beasts I had purposed, if God had permitted, to bring before the last General Assembly of the Church, some measure which would have embraced my doctrine, and represented the sense I have of the late acts of the kingdom, respecting Dissenters and Papists and to have done what in me lay, to clear the church of the guilt of acquiescence, or of silence, when such great wickedness was transacted by the estates of the kingdom, whose coun sellors we are in all things which concern the honour and glory of Christ. But the provi dence of God, which is wisest and best, saw it good to prevent this purpose of my heart, and likewise to forbid that any other Member of the General Assembly should bring forward such a measure. Whether this was permitted in judgment, or In mercy, time will shew; butmy present conviction is, that it was in judgment. Of this my purpose, having been prevented by an all-wise Providence, I feel it to be the more my duty now to dedicate the substance of my thoughts on these subjects to you, my reverend Fathers and Brethren; and through you to present them to the Mother Church, of which you are the Representatives.
