Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from Considerations on the Theory of Religion The life of Dr. Law was a life of incessant read ing and thought, almost entirely directed to meta physical and religious inquiries; but the tenet by which his name and writings are principally distinguished, is, that Jesus Christ, at his second coming, will, by an act of his power, restore to life and consciousness the dead of the human species; who by their own nature, and with out this interposition, would remain in the state of insensibility to which the death brought upon mankind by the sin of Adam had reduced them NO man formed his own conclusions with more freedom, or treated those of others with greater candour and equity. He never quarrelled with any person for differing from him, or con sidered that difference as a sufficient reason for questioning any man's sincerity, or judging meanly of his understanding. He was zealously attached to religious liberty, because he thought that it leads to truth yet from his heart he loved peace. But he did not perceive any repugnancy in these two things. There was nothing in his elevation to a bishopric which he spoke of with more plea sure, than its being a proof that decent freedom of inquiry was not discouraged. The Editor has here omitted an assertion of the Author, very much questioning his authority for making it.
