SERMON I.

Psalm civ. 24.
O Lord, how manifold are thy

Works! in Wisdom hast thou
made them all.
PSYCHAT there is a God, is a Proposi- Serm.
T tion that carries with it such a I.

felf-evident demonstrative Truth.

that to endeavour to prove it would be as needless an Undertaking, as that of a certain Philosopher, who fought out Arguments to prove his own Existence. It is the Foundation of all Truth; the great Hinge on which Religion turns; and upon the Certainty of it all moral Obligations des pend, as likewise the universal Law of Nature, and the eternal and necessary Diffe. rences and Relations of Things. For God is the Original of all Things, without a Supposition of whose Being there is not any

Serm. Thing whatsoever that can possibly be ac

counted for ; for if we could suppose God
not to be, we could never suppose the Pof-:
fibility of any thing else. And yet, not-
withstanding this, there are many obdurate
Men, wha haye abandon'd Virtue, and are
become Slaves to Vice; who are Christians
in Profession, and Atheists in Practice;
whose Interest and Advantage it is, that
there should be no God, nor Judge of ha.
man Actions; that would willingly cheat
themselves into a Denial of this Truth, if
they could do it with any tolerable Decen-
cy. Tho' 'tis very strange, how any one,
who is endued with Reason, and has Eyes
to look abroad into the World, to see the
Hand of God in all his Works, and trace
the Footsteps of Providence, can doubt of
the Existence of that Being, whom Nature
proclaims in all her Works; for the invisible
things of him from the Creation of the
World are clearly seen, being understood
by the Things that are made, even his eter-
nal Power and Godhead; so that they, if
any such there are, who actually doubt of
it, are without Excuse. These things tran-
fcend the Bounds of any finite Capacity, and
muft of necessity be swallow'd up in Won-
der and Admiration; for tho' the holy Pfal.
