Excerpt from Of the Importance of Religious Opinions From' the midil of thele *claihin and contradic tions, continually recurring, a mtnlfier, poflelled of a reflecting mind, is incellantly called back to the idea of imperfection. V He will, ' undoubtedly, be forry, ' when he feese the great difprnportion which exxlls be tween his duty and his powers: and he will fome' times grieve and be'dtfcouraged, at perceiving the oh-r' {lacles he mull furrnount, and the difficulties he mufl' overcome. E He raifes; with labour' and care, banks on the {irand the waters fwell; their courfe becomte more rapid; and the firll precautions rendered infuf-v ficient, oblige him to have recourfe to new worksi which, thrown down in their turn, hurry on a contin' ued {uccellron of fruitlets *toil and' ufelefs attempts. What, then, would be the confequence, if once the' {almary chain of religious-{entiments were broken P, whatould be the event, if the action of that-pow erful fprmg were even entirely dellroy ed 3' 'you would) foon lee every part of the {ocial Bruflure tremble from its foundation - and the hand of government unable to fuflatn the vall and tottering edifice.
