The Gospel Breathes Peace and Goodwill

Charles Doe

"That Gospel breathes peace and goodwill to man; its object is to chase away darkness from the human soul, and thence from the community, by the extensive diffusion of knowledge. It breathes the spirit of liberty in all things civil and religious; it calls on all men to consider this as their unalienable birthright and privilege; it awakens man to a deep sense of his dignity and worth as an immortal being; it brings health and salvation to his soul; it makes him the freedman of the Lord; it enjoins on all the subjects of God’s moral government, to “live soberly, righteously, and godly in the world”; it breathes death to tyranny and oppression: in a word, it constrains men to fear God, to honor the magistracy, to love all men."—William C. Brownlee.


William C. Brownlee, An Appeal to the Patriot, (New York: American Tract Society, 1831.)
