Sivu 12 - And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach...
Sivu 20 - He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the river unto the ends of the earth. They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him And his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him : All nations shall serve him.
Sivu 20 - But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches ; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
Sivu 31 - Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

If I were to detail the vulgar abuse in which they have indulged,...
Sivu 8 - ... following false principles, nothing is more certain than that by an inexorable law of nature true principles will assert their position, and we shall be punished for our mistake by being landed in difficulties greater than we had to contend with at the outset. It is a very old and often-exposed fallacy to argue against the use of a thing from the abuse of it...
Sivu 34 - ... (on which account it will be reprobated and attributed to a bad motive by the pious Christian, whose zeal is warmed by a live coal from off the altar,) yet it has saved from misery millions upon millions. Another modification of slavery, or alleviation of its evils, is to be found in the ordinance, that in the sale of slaves the mother shall on no account be separated from the children, a crime committed by our West-Indians every day.
