Excerpt from The Extent of Salvation: A Treatise Showing the Compatibility of a State of Punishment Beyond the Grave With Universal Salvation
The design of this volume is to show forth the consistency of scripture truth. Although it will be found to conﬂict with the va rions systems of theology generally received in our day, yet it is hoped, that this fact will not inﬂuence the judgment of the Church for or against its merits, until they have been carefully and prayer fully considered. One of the deadliest shafts of infidelity against the inspiration of \the volume of Divine truth, is wielded under the assumption, that it contradicts itself and against Christianity in general; that its advocates are so divided in sentiment and belief, even on those doctrines which are considered as essential to vital religion. Although the inspiration of the sacred scriptures has been fully attested by noble champions in the Church of Christ; yet it cannot be denied, that infidelity has had, for reasons above inti mated, the power, not only of weakening the Church Within, but also of greatly retarding the missionary of the cross in his efforts to tell of a Saviour's love to a world lying in wickedness. If what is set forth in this volume is a true exposition of the word of God; it will be found that doctrines, apparently conﬂicting, when rightly viewed, perfectly harmonise. - It will take from the hand of inﬂ delity that weapon which has done more evil in these latter times, than all other instrumentalities of Satan. It will have a tendency to promote such an alliance among the saints of the Most High, as will be truly formidable against every thing that opposeth and exalteth itself, in opposition to Truth.
