Excerpt from A Treatise on Baptism: In Which Its Nature, Subjects, and Mode of Administration Are Scripturally and Rationally Stated and Vindicated; And the Principal Arguments and Objections of Antipaedobaptist Writers Carefully Examined and Answered That, to make little things great, or great things little, is wrong, both scripture and reason certify; for, according to both every thing should be estimated in proportlon to its real value. Hence, according to reason, water, as being more valuable than wine, should be more highly esteemed, and, On the same principle, bread should be preferred to gold. And according to scripture, the soul should be preferred to the body, yea to the whole world; the things which are not seen, which are eternal, to the things which are seen, which are only temporal; the reproach of Christ to the treasures of Egypt, the suffering afiiction with the people of God, to the enjoy ing of the pleasures of sin for a season, yea, to all the riches, honours, and pleasures of a vain and transitory world; as those things are, in their connexions and consequences, of a vastly superior value to these, which the deluded sons of earth so highly prize and so ardently pursue.
