A Defence of Natural and Revealed Religion, Vol. 2
Excerpt from A Defence of Natural and Revealed Religion, Vol. 2: Being an Abridgment of the Sermons Preached at the Lecture Founded by the Honble Robert Boyle, Esq.Heretics for corrupting and misinterpreting the Scriptures of the New Testament, I will take care to do it by observing the following method.I. I will explain to you in what Sense and Respects the Mysteries of the Gospel can be said really to exceed our Comprehension.II. I will offer some Considerations which prove, that their being thus incomprehensible by us, is no just Bar to our believing them.III. I will answer as distinctly as I can, the principal Arguments made use of to insinuate, that they are not to be believed, because not to be comprehended by us.Having established the general Part of the Argument, I shall afterwards descend to some particular Points of Faith and Practice, and shew that these have such Evidence as the Jews ought to ascent to; and are no Way repugnant to the so much boasted Wisdom of an improved, tho' still mere natural Man.I. I shall explain to you in what Sense and Respects the Mysteries of the Gospel can be said really to exceed our Comprehension.1. Now it is readily admitted on both Sides, that several Things believed in the World, are of so abstruse a Nature, that no Man by the Strength of his own Discourse could ever have found them out. And therefore all, who embrace Revelation, do likewise agree in confessing, that these Things neither were, nor could be known, but by God's express Declaration. Upon this Acknowledgment St. Paul infers the unavoidable Occasion for a Revelation from above in Points peculiar to Christians, and attributes these Discoveries to God.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
