Sivu 22 - And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them: "Verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: for all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
Sivu 12 - Christ, who, though he was rich, yet for our sakes, became poor, that we through his poverty might be made rich...
Sivu 8 - ... habits, preclude from the amiable circles of cultivated religious society. These do not for a long time change their sentiments or society with the scene of their existence. They continue to...
Sivu 12 - God hath chosen the poor of this world rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him.
Sivu 7 - Edinburgh principles? Let us see. There is not, I •will answer for it, a native Englishman among them. Poor ministers the chief of them, of small Scottish congregations, stationed on the wrong side of the border, who sigh in obsequious fondness after a church that has not cherished them with reciprocal attachment. Their highest conceptions of worldly glory and felicity do not surmount the dome of St George's...
Sivu 8 - Such individuals send their homage and mite to the Edinburgh Society. And of the tribe of needy adventurers who every year migrate to the genial South, there are hundreds whose rank does not entitle them to forget, as their betters for the most part do, their presbyterian education and early predilections, and whom sordid sentiments, vulgar manners, and money* loving habits, preclude from the amiable circles of cultivated religious society.

And who are those English abettors of Edinburgh principles ? Let us see : there is not, I will answer for it, a native Englishman among them. Poor ministers the chief of •them, of small Scottish congregations, stationed on the wrong side of the -border, who sigh in obsequious fondness after a Church that has not cherished them with...
Sivu 8 - But such contributions, like picturesque scenery on other mens' estates, will do more to gratify the taste than to extend the resources of the Society that has the benefit of them. I would not, however, by any means say, that all Scottish ministers settled in the North of England, or that all poor laymen, removing to London, are of this character — only that, in most cases, it is a spirit of prejudice and cynical discontent which leads men, so situated, to send money to Edinburgh, in preference...
