The sounding brass

The sounding brass and the tinkling cymbal may soothe the Conscience intQ dread repose; but, those, who mean us well, will w cry aloud, and spare not. Isa. lviii. i," Sensuality, Ignorance, and Pride, are all of them fascinated with the Arts of Eloquencebut, they shrink back at the Eloquence of the Heart. They object not to being pleasedbut, they hate to be probed What then ? If a christian Instructor possess not that sublime magnanimity, with which his Bible ought to animate him, should he MBT Shoes ever fall below the Justum, et tenacem propositi virum Non civium ardor praya jubentium, Non vultus instantis tyranniMente quatit solida ? Can the richest, the purest imagination, picture to itself a more exalted Character, than MBT that of a Messenger of the most High, cloathed indeed with unaffected humility, but faithful to the commission with which he is entrustedfuming with zeal for the divine Glory, and fot the success of his Causeand looking down with a noble disdain on every person, and every consideration, that would seduce his mind from the supreme objects he ha$ MBT Shoes Clearance in view? And, what are they ? The propagation of revealed Truth, the establishment of christian Virtue, and the promotion of that Happiness, which is the result of both. Is it any matter of surprise then, that the Author of our Religion should have said to his select and faithful Disciples,.It must be admitted indeed, that such an elevated Character will be exposed to circumstances of peculiar difficulty, and may expect to meet with but little encouragement. For, while a Man, who speaks or writes against Revelation, shall acquire celebrity, and be accounted a Philosopher, and a Wit; and the bolder steps he takes in that line of blasphemy, the surer he is of being esteemed a Genius; the more courage and ardour a person betrays in the service of uncorrupted Christianity, the more prepared he ought to be for almost universal ridicule and contempt!
