An Appeal to the Patriot

An Appeal to the Patriot by William Brownlee.An Appeal to the Patriot

William Brownlee wrote this treatise to explain how a good and just society cannot exist on the basis of laws alone but only by the fear of God in the hearts of its people. Court judges and juries, the armed forces and the free press all need to have virtue and morality to work properly and benefit society. “But this cannot be done, unless men in public employment be rendered honorable, just, and pure. And such virtues cannot exist, in the solidity of a persevering principle, without strict virtue and the fear of God in the heart.” “The human system of morality, drawn up by the wise and the learned, can never communicate the principle of spiritual life; and from the days of Socrates to our times, it never has done it.” “God only can quicken us, who are dead.”

Resolutions: A Collection of Wisdom

Resolutions: A Collection of Wisdom by Jonathan Edwards,Resolutions: A Collection of Wisdom Cotton Mather, Philip Doddridge, Adoniram Judson, William Law and Brother Lawrence.

“These resolutions [of Jonathan Edwards], are, perhaps, to persons of every age, but especially to the young, the best uninspired summary of Christian duty, the best directory to high attainments in evangelical virtue, which the mind of man has hitherto been able to form,” said S. E. Dwight. Cotton Mather thought to develop special rules for pride alone. Philip Doddridge was sensible that his heart had an inclination to depart from God. Brother Lawrence said “to establish ourselves in a sense of God’s presence by continually conversing with Him.” Adoniram Judson said, “God grant me grace to keep the above rules, and ever live to his glory, for Jesus Christ’s sake.” The resolutions allow one to see examples of the life of holiness that the Spirit of God enables Christians to follow.

The Forgiveness of Sin As a Debt

The Forgiveness of Sin As a Debt by Mathew Henry.The Forgiveness of Sin As a Debt

 Matthew Henry presents a rigorous treatment of the Gospel, describing sin as a debt, as found in Matthew 6:12. He says: “This similitude, which represents sin as a debt, and the pardon of sin as the forgiving of that debt, our Saviour often used: and it is a proper one, and very significant.” This first part answers the questions of how we are in debt to God, what kind of debt sin is, what kind of debtors sinners are, and the danger of these debts. The second part covers what is included in the forgiveness of sin as a debt, why we have hope for it, and what is required of us. The third part gives six applications. This hard to find sermon is sure to interest anyone looking into the heart of Christianity.

Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God

Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God by Matthew Henry.Faith in Christ Inferred from Faith in God

Matthew Henry, in an exposition of John 14:1: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me,” makes plain that a person cannot simply believe in God, but must also believe in Jesus Christ. The “natural religion” of belief in God cannot Biblically stand without the revealed religion of Jesus Christ. In the first part he describes the objects of our faith, the Father and the Son. In the second part he shows the acts of our faith in Christ must be the same as our acts of our faith in God. In the third part he shows the necessary connection between believing in God and believing in Jesus Christ.
