الصفحة 311 - ... in morals, as in theology, we might not improperly denominate good works. In morals, as in religion, there are not wanting instances of refined sentimentalists, who are contented with talking of virtues which they never practise, who pay in words what they owe in actions ; or perhaps, what is fully as dangerous, who open their minds to impressions which never have any effect upon their conduct, but are considered as something foreign to and distinct from it.
الصفحة 40 - And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins : but this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever sat down on the right hand of God ; from henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool.
الصفحة 155 - Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
الصفحة 310 - The duty to parents is contrasted with the ties of friendship and of love ; the virtues of justice, of prudence, of economy, are put in competition with the exertions of generosity, of benevolence, and of compassion ; and even of these virtues of sentiment there are still more refined divisions, in which...

الصفحة 15 - I am persuaded, will, to an eye so philosophic as yours, at least open a very cheerful vista through the gloom, if not entirely turn the imaginary darkness into sunshine ; for, with respect to the few reprobate, we may, and we ought, to resign the disposal of them implicitly to the will of that only King who can do no wrong...
الصفحة 45 - Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son [to be} a propitiation for our sins.
الصفحة 310 - That sickly sort of refinement creates imaginary evils and distresses, and imaginary blessings and enjoyments, which embitter the common disappointments, and depreciate the common attainments of life. This affects the temper doubly, both with respect to ourselves and others ; with respect to ourselves, from what we think ought to be our lot ; with regard to others, from what we think ought to be their sentiments. It inspires a certain childish pride of our , own superior delicacy, and an unfortunate...
الصفحة 308 - Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you ? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
