Sivu 150 - BUT there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Sivu 62 - I appeal to any man of reason whether any thing can be more unreasonable than obstinately to impute an effect to chance, which 'carries in the very face of it all the arguments and characters of a wise design and contrivance.
Sivu 23 - Christ, and of his duty, all this would be but an impertinent vanity, and a more glittering kind of ignorance...
Sivu 106 - I think the world was made FOR one, And men are born FOR kings, as beasts FOR men ?" [ie Shall I think that one man was the Cause why the world was made ; that kings are the Cause why men were born ; as men are the Cause why there are beasts?]
