THE SYNOD OF NEW JERSEY,
OCTOBER 17, 1849.
CHARLES K. IMBRIE,
PUBLISHED AT THE REQUEST OF SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE SYNOD,
Entered according to the Act of Congress, in the year 1850, by
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the Southern District
of New York.
R. CRAIGHEAD, PRINTER AND STEREOTYPER,
112 FULTON STREET, NEW YORK.
The following discourse has thus long been withheld, because its presentation to the public was thought unnecessary among the numerous valuable works on the same subject, which are within the easy reach of all. It is now published in compliance with the continued solicitations of many brethren on both sides of the questions discussed, who have kindly expressed a wish to see it in print. A second object is to correct the various misrepresentations which have appeared in the public journals and elsewhere, by letting the discourse speak for itself.
To those“ who have studied the point,” the discourse will offer nothing new; its single aim was at first, and is now, to arouse attention to a subject of growing importance.
The sermon itself appears now in very much the same shape in which it was originally delivered. A few texts of scripture have been added in their appropriate places.
The accompanying notes were subsequently written, to meet some of the leading objections which have been suggested to the author and others, against the views which the discourse brings forward. May God speed only the truth!
