That necessity ex ists in our time, when impurity infects each age, sex, and condition - in our time, when public licentiousness and the force of the highest ex amples, tend to take from it even the remains of shame. Yes the ministers of the gospel walk ing in the footsteps of the apostles, must warn you against this species of iniquity, must shew you its vileness, must announce to you, that, if Qty one defile and violate the temple of God in his own body, him shall God destroy. 1 Cor.

We may not re trace in the minds of the penitent. Images which they should ethics for ever, nor teach the inno cent, what it were better for themonever to know.
