A Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of Professed Christians, in the Middle and Higher Classes in this Country, Contrasted with Real Christianity.

From the author s introduction The main object which he has in view is, not to convince the Sceptic, or to answer the arguments of persons who avowedly oppose the fundamental doctrines of our Religion but to point out the scanty and erroneous system of the bulk of those who belong to the class of orthodox Christians, and to contrast their defective scheme with a represen From the author s introduction The main object which he has in view is, not to convince the Sceptic, or to answer the arguments of persons who avowedly oppose the fundamental doctrines of our Religion but to point out the scanty and erroneous system of the bulk of those who belong to the class of orthodox Christians, and to contrast their defective scheme with a representation of what the author apprehends to be real Christianity Often has it filled him with deep concern, to observe in this description of persons, scarcely any distinct knowledge of the real nature and principles of the religion which they profess The subject is of infinite importance let it not be driven out of our minds by the bustle or dissipations of life This present scene, and all its cares and all its gaieties, will soon be rolled away, and we must stand before the judgment seat of Christ This awful consideration will prompt the writer to express himself with greater freedom than he should otherwise be disposed to use This consideration he trusts, also, will justify his frankness, and will secure him a serious and patient perusal But it would be trespassing on the indulgence of the reader to detain him with introductory remarks Let it only be farther premised, that if what shall be stated should to any appear needlessly austere and rigid, the writer must lay in his claim not to be condemned, without a fair inquiry whether or not his statements accord with the language of the sacred writings To that test he refers with confidence and it must be conceded by those who admit the authority of Scripture such only he is addressing that from the decision of the word of God there can be no appeal
