Excerpt from Diagram of the Churches: Illustrated by a Supposed Interview Between the Arminian's All-Wise and Omnipotent God of the Universe and His Arminian Ministers
We believe that Dr. S. M. Carlton is actuated by a zeal for, and an ardent desire for the promulgation of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, in the publication of the following work. We have been intimately acquainted with him for several years, and have admired his magnanimous spirit in entertaining and sustaining the people of God. His house has ever been the Christian's home, regardless of sectarianism or creeds; believing, as he does, that many of the poor afﬂicted saints have been beguiled, and caught in the nets of Babylon, and are living upon the husks or chaff of Antichrist; And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat; and no man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, how many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger. - Luke xv. 16, 17. Should the following treatise inspire or give Christian fortitude to any of the starving children of God who are living upon such meager supplies of spiritual food, to come out from the tents of Babylon and enlist under the banner of Jesus Christ and his Apostles, by connecting themselves with the Church of Christ, as well as to inspire others of God's elect or chosen people, who have made no public profession of the Christian's faith, to take up their cross and follow Christ through evil as well as good report, we feel that our brother will be amply compensated for the vast amount of labor and time bestowed upon the work, regardless of the small remuneration that he justly expects in the sale of the book.
