Excerpt from Tracts of Cyprian, Bishop of Carthage; In Two Parts: Part I. Containing a Consolatory Epistle Addressed to the Church of Carthage During a Season of Pestilence, And, a Letter to the Governor, Demetrian, on the Causes of National Affliction; Part II. Containing Short Treatises, Doctrinal and Practical There would be no conclusiveness in this reasoning, nor in that of section 4, except our author had been of St. Paul' s opinion, that imme diately upon a good man's dissolution, he went to Christ, Philip. I. 23, and 2d Cor. V. 1, 6; and indeed our author elsewhere in his tract to Demetrian hath given us his sense upon this question very clearly, where he saith, Till upon the conclusion of this transient life we are assigned to separate mansions, either ofeverlasting destruction, or of life immortal. And again a little farther, When we go hence, there is no room for repentance, nor any possibility of atoning for our sins by penitential satisfactions; here, or no where, must be laid the foundation of life eternal.
