    Sign-up now! It went through nine English editions by and 18 by I would count it among my recommendations for non-scriptural "required reading at some point for all Christians" canon. Stock Image. The other of the same family that sincerity is all in all.

    Consider in how many cases our evil propensities are now kept from breaking forth, by the superior restraints under A Practical View book vice is laid among us by positive laws, and by the amended A Practical View book of public opinion; and we [Pg 21] may be assisted in conjecturing what force is to be assigned to these motives, by the dreadful proofs which have been lately exhibited in a neighbouring country, that when their influence is withdrawn, the most atrocious crimes can be perpetrated shamelessly and in the face of day. It is to these we would earnestly call you; to these ever to be accompanied with fervent prayers for the divine blessing Scripture every where holds forth the most animating promises. Such a one will find occasion to remark, that all, which has been suggested of the final consequences of vice, is in strict analogy to what we may observe in the ordinary course of human affairs, wherein it will appear, on a careful survey, that God has so assigned to things their general tendencies, and established such an order of causes and effects, as however interrupted here below by hindrances and obstructions apparently of a temporary nature loudly [Pg 33] proclaim the principles of his moral government, and strongly suggest, that vice and imprudence will finally terminate in misery [12]. We have every consideration to alarm our fears, or to animate our industry.

    What inaptitude to good! Such on a full and fair investigation must be confessed to be the state of facts; and how can this be accounted for on any other supposition, than that of some original taint, some radical principle of corruption? So far all is well. In any event, Lewis believes that the most certain way to go to Heaven is to believe in Christ. Point of view is more than just 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person.

Apologies if this happened, because human users outside of Germany who are making use of the eBooks or A Practical View book site features should almost never be blocked. From it we learn that man is an apostate creature, fallen from his high original, degraded in his nature, and depraved in his faculties; indisposed to good, and disposed to evil; prone to vice, it is natural and easy to him; disinclined A Practical View book virtue, it is difficult and laborious; that he is tainted with sin, not slightly and superficially, but radically and to the very core.

Some too it will be remembered that we are speaking of the natural state of man, [Pg 26] without taking Christianity into question have for a while appeared almost to have escaped from their confinement; but none are A Practical View book free; all without exception, in a greater or less degree bear about them, more visible or more concealed, the ignominious marks of their captivity.

In a world, which opposed and persecuted them, it was their [Pg 9] source of peace, and hope, and consolation. So far all is well. It would not be going too far to assert, that whilst it scorns the defence of petty villains, of those who still retain the sense of good and evil, it holds forth, like some well frequented sanctuary, a secure asylum to those more finished criminals, who, from long habits of wickedness, are lost alike to the perception as to the practice of virtue; and that it selects a seared conscience and a heart become callous to all moral distinctions as the special objects of its care.

But perhaps it may be enough when any such suggestions as those which we are condemning force themselves into the imagination of a Christian, to recommend it to him to silence them by what is their best practical answer: that if our natural condition be depraved and weak, our temptations numerous, and our Almighty Judge infinitely holy; yet that the [Pg 41] offers to penitent sinners of pardon and grace, and strength, are universal and unlimited.

Then, within a few days of the publication of A Practical View, a series of naval mutinies broke out in the fleets stationed in Spithead off Portsmouth and in the Thames estuary. We should not go too far if we were to assert, that it lies at the very root of all true Religion, and still more, that it is eminently the basis and ground-work of Christianity.

Or, should the long suffering of God still continue to us the mercies which we so much abuse, it will only aggravate our crime, and in the end enhance our punishment.
