J52prose; E200| He never can be a Friend to the Human Race who is the Preacher
J52prose; E200| of Natural Morality or Natural Religion. he is a flatterer who
J52prose; E200| means to betray, to perpetuate Tyrant Pride & the Laws of that
J52prose; E200| Babylon which he foresees shall shortly be destroyed, with the
J52prose; E200| Spiritual and not the Natural Sword: He is in the State named
J52prose; E200| Rahab: which State must be put off before he can be the Friend of
J52prose; E200| Man.
J52prose; E200| You O Deists profess yourselves the Enemies of Christianity:
J52prose; E200| and you are so: you are also the Enemies of the Human Race & of
J52prose; E200| Universal Nature. Man is born a Spectre or Satan & is altogether
J52prose; E200| an Evil, & requires a New Selfhood continually & must continually
J52prose; E200| be changed into his direct Contrary. But your Greek Philosophy
J52prose; E200| (which is a remnant of Druidism) teaches that Man is Righteous in
J52prose; E200| his Vegetated Spectre: an Opinion of fatal & accursed consequence
J52prose; E200| to Man, as the Ancients saw plainly by Revelation to the intire
J52prose; E200| abrogation of
J52prose; E201| Experimental Theory. and many believed what they saw, and
J52prose; E201| Prophecied of Jesus.
J52prose; E201| Man must & will have Some Religion; if he has not the Religion
J52prose; E201| of Jesus, he will have the Religion of Satan, & will erect the
J52prose; E201| Synagogue of Satan. calling the Prince of this World, God; and
J52prose; E201| destroying all who do not worship Satan under the Name of God.
J52prose; E201| Will any one say: Where are those who worship Satan under the
J52prose; E201| Name of God! Where are they? Listen! Every Religion that Preaches
J52prose; E201| Vengeance for Sins the Religion of the Enemy & Avenger; and not
J52prose; E201| the Forgiver of Sin, and their God is Satan, Named by the Divine
J52prose; E201| Name Your Religion O Deists: Deism, is the Worship of the God
J52prose; E201| of this World by the means of what you call Natural Religion and
J52prose; E201| Natural Philosophy, and of Natural Morality or
J52prose; E201| Self-Righteousness, the Selfish Virtues of the Natural Heart.
J52prose; E201| This was the Religion of the Pharises who murderd Jesus. Deism
J52prose; E201| is the same & ends in the same.
J52prose; E201| Voltaire Rousseau Gibbon Hume. charge the Spiritually Religious
J52prose; E201| with Hypocrisy! but how a Monk or a Methodist either, can be a
J52prose; E201| Hypocrite: I cannot concieve. We are Men of like passions with
J52prose; E201| others & pretend not to be holier than others: therefore, when a
J52prose; E201| Religious Man falls into Sin, he ought not to be calld a
J52prose; E201| Hypocrite: this title is more properly to be given to a Player
J52prose; E201| who falls into Sin; whose profession is Virtue & Morality & the
J52prose; E201| making Men Self-Righteous. Foote in calling Whitefield,
J52prose; E201| Hypocrite: was himself one: for Whitefield pretended not to be
J52prose; E201| holier than others: but confessed his Sins before all the World;
J52prose; E201| Voltaire! Rousseau! You cannot escape my charge that you are
J52prose; E201| Pharisees & Hypocrites, for you are constantly talking of the
J52prose; E201| Virtues of the Human Heart, and particularly of your own, that
J52prose; E201| you may accuse others & especially the Religious, whose errors,
J52prose; E201| you by this display of pretended Virtue, chiefly design to
J52prose; E201| expose. Rousseau thought Men Good by Nature; he found them Evil
J52prose; E201| & found no friend. Friendship cannot exist without Forgiveness
J52prose; E201| of Sins continually. The Book written by Rousseau calld his
J52prose; E201| Confessions is an apology & cloke for his sin & not a confession.
J52prose; E201| But you also charge the poor Monks & Religious with being the
J52prose; E201| causes of War: while you acquit & flatter the Alexanders &
J52prose; E201| Caesars, the Lewis's & Fredericks: who alone are its causes & its
J52prose; E201| actors. But the Religion of Jesus, Forgiveness of Sin, can never
J52prose; E201| be the cause of a War nor of a single Martyrdom.
J52prose; E201| Those who Martyr others or who cause War are Deists, but never
J52prose; E201| can be Forgivers of Sin. The Glory of Christianity is, To
J52prose; E201| Conquer by Forgiveness. All the Destruction therefore, in
J52prose; E201| Christian Europe as arisen from Deism, which is Natural
J52prose; E201| Religion.
