THE GENERAL ESTIMATE OF THE PULPIT DIVINITY OF

THE LAST CENTURY.

Infinite opinions there are, in matters of religion, and most men are con.
fident; and most are deceived in many things, and all in some: and those
few that are not confident, have only reason enough to suspect their own
reason,

LETTER XVIII.

ENGLISH DIVINES.

A low estimate of the divinity of the last age, one of the

prejudices of the present. - Enquiry into the causes
of this prejudice. --Some principles of judgment sug-
gested. — Objections made to these divines. — Cha-
racter of Scripture. — Dogmatical and preceptive. -
Divinity of human composition, controversial. — And
why. - General character of the divines under con-
sideration. — Farther rules for judging them fairly.-
Faith and works, why a subject of controversy.
The latter, strongly enforced, in apprehension of anti-
nomianism. — Free-will sometimes incautiously stated.

- Farther objections considered. — Low standard of
morality. - Use of heathen authorities. — A priori
reasoning. — Circumstances which led to this latter
practice, and apparent necessity for it. — Funda-
mental doctrines of Christianity, indispensable in the
pulpit, though modes of illustration may vary.
