Excerpt from A Sermon, Delivered at the Ordination of the Rev. Levi White, to the Pastoral Care of the Church in Sandersfield: June 28th, 1798 Men, for pre-eminence fake, were affected in their bod ies, as well as their minds, faw extraordinary appearan ces, cried out in high tranfports, preached, prayed, and exhorted loud and earneftly, tang through the ftreers, and were indifcreetly and baflily zealous. But, becaufe the tafle and manners of the times. Are altered, we are not to fuppofe, that the fpirit, which led in the extrav agancies of thofe days, is now afleep. The fame love of pre-eminence, that once made zealots, and crufaders, now makes lceptrcs. Decent irreligion, now affumes to itfelf, the fame airs, and indulges the fame rancorous cen fure. When Abfalom would go to Hebron, to pay a vow, religion was made the {talking horfe, and facrifice, the fhouting horn, of fedition and ufurpation.
