Postscript to the True Christian Religion.
I HAVE read what Dr. Ernesti has written about me in his Theological Work, p. 784, and have observed that it consists of mere aspersions against my person ; nor have I found a grain of reason therein against any one proposition or matter contained in my writings. Yet to attack a person with such poisoned daggers, is contrary to the laws of honour or honesty. Wherefore I esteem it as a proceeding unworthy of my character to enter into a contest with that celebrated man, in the way of which he has shewn the example, that is, by returning and rebutting reproachful language by reflections of the same kind : for this would be like two dogs barking and snarling at each other ; or like women of the lowest description, who in their disputes mutually cast dirt in each other's faces. Read, if you please, an account of the Arcana revealed by the Lord through me his servant, as
last Work, entitled True CHRISTIAN RELIGION, n. 8 46 to 851 ; and after that draw a conclusion, yet under the direction of reason, on the subject of my revelation.
Moreover against the sime Dr. Ernesti was written the Memorable Relation itserted in the aforementioned Work, called TRUE CHISTIAN RELIGION, n. 137; which may be consulted at pleasure.
