The Doctrines of the New Church Briefly Explained (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Doctrines of the New Church Briefly Explained To supply this need, has been the author's main purpose in the preparation of the present volume. The questions are often asked, What does the New Church believe and teach? And wherein. Do its doctrines differ from those of other churches? This little work Will be found to contain true and intelligible answers to these inquiries. The expositions have, for the most part, been necessarily brief; but the reader, who may wish to pursue the inquiry, is repeatedly referred to other works, wherein the same subjects are treated more extensively, and with rational and Scriptural evidence of what is believed to be the truth of the New Church views herein presented. For the purpose of showing the need of some such new revelation as that claimed to have been made through Swedenborg, the author has taken occasion to contrast the Old with the New view on many subjects; but in doing this, he has been careful to present the view which was generally accepted in Swedenborg's day, - well knowing that the Old Theology has, in many respects, been considerably modified by the quiet but constantly pervading inﬂuence of the New so that many of the New views are now held by the most advanced Christians in nearly all the churches, often with out a suspicion of the fact that they are New.
