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. 1833 edition. Excerpt: ...our everlasting condition.What religious advantages, either national or individual, can be furthered or perfected by ourselves? Is pure religion according to God's revealed will established among us? Do we possess a true creed? Do we enjoy a scriptural form of worship? Is our church governed and instructed by a well-educated and enlightened clergy? All this is matter of great thankfulness, but not of boasting: neither is a purer religion bestowed on us because we are naturally better than others, nor are we, individually or collectively, more deserving in the sight of God because he has thus greatly blessed us and loaded us with such unmerited benefits. It is his love, not our righteousness, that has lighted the living flame upon our altars; and if conscience say to any man, Thou art in the right path, thou art in the way to heaven; let conscience likewise say, " The Lord thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art, by nature, stiff-necked and rebellious." The most effectual method of undeceiving those who are inclined to arrogate to themselves merit and desert, is that which Moses used with the Israelites. To point out to them their sinfulness, their ingratitude and rebellion; to show them the necessity of atonement and intercession in order to their salvation; and to insist on the free and sovereign mercy of God as that whereby alone they can enjoy present health and peace, or future happiness and glory. Notwithstanding their sinfulness, through the atonement, God's free mercy, which leads him to promise heaven to the faithful, shall be richly and everlastingly extended towards them, provided they be of those who turn to him with all their hearts, and accept his love as it is in Jesus.
