Strona v - The Doctrine of Grace : or, the office and operations of the Holy Spirit vindicated from the insults of Infidelity and the abuses of Fanaticism,
Strona 248 - ... whom they are subject, is author ; only the works and operations of God have him both for their worker, and for the law whereby they are wrought. The being of God is a kind of law to his working : for that perfection which God is, giveth perfection to that he doth.
Strona 150 - ... reader, it has however its effect among the generality of those whose hands it falls into, the rabble of mankind being very apt to think that every thing which is laughed at, with any mixture of wit, is ridiculous in itself.
Strona 111 - ... at Bath, as the other for her health. Thus you see, my good friend, we have all something to make us think less complacently of the world. Religion will do great things.

Strona 37 - Brutus, that, for worth, honour, and a warm love of his country, any one is comparable to Messala: so that his eloquence, in which he wonderfully excels, is almost eclipsed by those virtues. And even in his display of that faculty, his superior good sense shows itself most: with so much care and skill hath he formed himself to the truest manner of speaking!

Strona 201 - Providence. The Jewish Religion and Society had no future state for their support : Therefore, the Jewish Religion and Society were supported by an extraordinary Providence.
Strona 185 - For it is most evident, that, as in a metaphysical proposition offered to the understanding for its assent, the faculty of reason examines the terms of the proposition, and finding one idea, which was supposed equal to another, to be in fact unequal, of consequence rejects the proposition as a falsehood ; so, in objects offered to the mind for its esteem or applause, the faculty of ridicule, finding an incongruity in the claim, urges the mind to reject it with laughter and contempt.
