A Course of Lectures in Defence of the Final Restoration
Excerpt from A Course of Lectures in Defence of the Final Restoration: Delivered in the Bulfinch Street Church, Boston, in the Winter of Eighteen Hundred and Thirty TwoThe subject presented to the mind in these lectures, is one of the deepest interest to the reader. Whether we shall be personally happy, is a question of the highest concern to every rational being; and whether the world will be made virtuous and happy is one of the highest general interest to all mankind. In the same ratio as we feel concerned in the event, shall we feel interested in the means by which that event is to be effected; and therefore the revelation of the gospel, being the only method by which either the knowledge or happiness of heaven can be acquired, will ever command our most devout consideration.Even that view of religion which promises the salvation of a part of the world only, is infinitely to be preferred to infidelity, which sweeps the whole world to one common grave of oblivion. But that view of the gospel plan advocated in this course, embracing, as it does, the universal restoration, and that, without setting aside the necessity of experimental and practical godliness, or weakening the motives to a good life, must always commend itself to the approbation and the best wishes of every truly benevolent and phinthropic heart. And if, as we sincerely believe, it has the united support of revelation, who would not wish to understand and believe, as well as to support it?About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
