in a higher view

if we would but consider the nature of God, and the nature of man, we should sind the fame necessity sor every other right use of our reason, sor every grace, or religious temper of the Christian lise : we should sind it as absurd to suppose, that Moncler ne man must be exact in piety, and another need not, as to suppose that one man must be exact in honesty, but another need not. For Christian humility, sobriety, devotion, and piety, are as great and necessary parts of a reasonable lise, as justice and honesty. •A N D on the other hand, pride, s Moncler jackets ensua lity, and tovetoksnefi, are as great diforders of the soul, are as high an abuse of our reason, and as contrary to God, as iheating and dishonesty. Tbeft and dishonesty seem indeed, to vulgar eyes, to be greater sins, because they are so hurtsul to civil society, and are so severely punish'd by human laws.B u T if we consider mankind in a higher view, as God's order or society of rational beings, that are to glorify him by the right use of the Moncler sale and Moncler coats or moncler vest that every temper that is equally contrary to reason and order, that opposes God's ends and de'cis because we are fallen into an age, where the lorn not only of many, but of most, is waxed cold. I Have made this little appeal to antiquity, and quoted these sew pasfages of Scripture, to support some uncommon practices in the lise of Moncler jackets Men & Moncler jackets women Miranda ; and ta dhew, that her highest rules of holy living, her devotion, self denials renunciation of the world, her charity, virginity, and voluntary poverty, are sounded in the J'nblimejt <ounsels of Christ and his apoitle , suitable «o the high expectations of another lise, proper instances of a heavenly love, and all sollowed by the greatest Joints of the best and purest ages of the church.He that batb ears to bear,

one man must be exact in piety

Post  tangcao123 on Thu Dec 02, 2010 2:40 am

instead of starving himself to death ; and then you have sound out as great a rebel against God.Folk that puts out his eyes, or murders himself, has only this guilt, that he abuses Moncler the powers that God has given him ; that he resuses to act that part sor which he was created, and puts himself into a state that is contrary to the divine will. And surely this is the guilt of every one that lives an unrcaionab'e, unholy, and soolish lise.A S theresore, no particular state, or private lise, is an excuse sor the abuse of our bodies, or self-murder; so no particular state, or private lise, is an excuse sor the abuse of our reason, or the neglect of the holinv Moncler jackets ess of the Christian religion. For surely it is as much the will of God that we should make the best use of our rational faculties, that we should consorm to the purity and holiness of Christianity, at it is the will of F 4 &quot; God, God, that we should use our eyes, and eat and drink for the preservation of our lives.Till theresore a man can shew, that he sincerely endeavours to live according to the will of God, to be that wh ch God requires him to be ; till he can shew, that he is striving to live according to the holiness of the Chrillian religion ; whosoever he be, or wheresoever he be, he has all that to answer sor, that they have, who resuse to live, who abuse the greatest trusts Moncler sale and Moncler coats or moncler vest and neglect the highest calling in the world.Every body acknowledges, that all orders of men are to be equally and exactly honest and faithful; there is no exception to be made in these duties, sor any private or particular state of lise. Now if we would bin attend to the reason and nature of things ; if we would but consider the nature of God, and the nature of man, we should sind the fame necessity sor every other right use of our reason, sor every grace, or religious temper of the C Moncler jackets Men & Moncler jackets women hristian lise : we should sind it as absurd to suppose, that one man must be exact in piety, and another need not, as to suppose that one man must be exact in honesty, but another need not. For Christian humility, sobriety, devotion, and piety, are as great and necessary parts of a reasonable lise, as justice and honesty. •A N D on the other hand, pride, sensuality, and tovetoksnefi, are as great diforders of the soul, are as high an abuse of our reason, and as contrary to God, as iheating and dishonesty. Tbeft and dishonesty seem indeed, to vulgar eyes, to be greater sins, because they are so hurtsul to civil society, and are so severely punish'd by human laws.

B u T if we consider mankind in a higher view, as God's order or society of rational beings, that are to glorify him by the right use of their reason, and by acting consormably to the orde Moncler r of their nature, we shall sind, that every temper that is equally contrary to reason and order, that opposes God's ends and d5gns, and disorders the beauty and glory of the rational world, is equally sinsul in man, and Moncler jackets equally odious to God. This would shew us, that the sin of sensuality is like the fin of dishonesty, and renders us as great objects of the div ne displeasure.Again, if we consider mankind in a farther view, as a redeemed order of'fallen spirits, that are baptized into a sellowship with the Son of God} to be temples of the Holy Ghost ; to live according to his holy inspirations; to offer to God the reasonable facrifices of an hum Moncler sale and Moncler coats or moncler vest ble, pious, and thanksul lise ; to purify themselves from the disorders of their fall; to mike a right use of the means of grace, in order to be sos of eternal glory: If we look at mankind in this true light, then we shall find, that air. tempers that are contrary to this holy society, that are abuses of this insinite mercy ; all actions that make us unlike to Christ, that disgrace his body, that abuse the means of grace, and oppofe our hopes of glory, have every thing in them, that Moncler jackets Men & Moncler jackets women can make us sor ever odious unto God. So that though pride and sensuality, and other vices of the like kind, do not hurt civÆsociety, as cheating and dishonesty do; yet they hurhifeat society, and oppofe thofe ends, which are greatiihd more glorious in the eyes of God, than all the societies that relate to this world. -^riw .-.' N 0 T H i N c theresore can be more false, than to imagine, that because we are private persons, that have taken upon us no charge or employment of lise, that theresore we may live more at large, indulge our appetites, and be less caresul of the duties of piety and holiness; sor it is as good an excuse sor cheating and dishonesty. Because he that abuses his
