Excerpt from Miscellaneous Tracts
TO our modern philosophers, who set up the proud idols of their own fancies in opposition to the oracles of the divi nity; and, endeavouring to discover absurdities in 1 the Christian religion, fall into greater, we can; without dis claiming our title to good mann ers, apply what St. P1111 la ap plied to the philosophers of his time they became vain in their imaginations professing themselves to be, wisek they became fools.' In order to sap the foundations of revealed religion and to make man the sport of chance, who neither lost any privilege by Adam's fall, nor gained any thing by Christ's redemption, they endeavour to obtrude Moses on the public as an allegorical writer. Examine his character, and acknowledge their folly.
