Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1836 edition. Excerpt: ...whom he calls his sheep; for whom he says, he laid down his life. And John xvii. he speaks of those whom the Father had given him, as distinct from the rest of mankind: For these, he says, he jrays, and not for the world, ver. 9.

The end which he was intently set upon, was the salvation of all the human race, and yet he is greatly disappointed of it; for great numbers forever perish. Now, how can any man reasonably persuade himself, that God really proposed to himself, and intended such an end, and yet did not make it sure, and ascertain the attainment of it?
