SECT. I. Little light to be got from the systems of Chris-

tian writers, or the objections of Deists,-or from the
Rabbins,-or from the Cabalists, concerning the true

to preserve the knowledge of the true God amidst an
idolatrous world, ~Vindicated from the calumnious false-
hoods of the Poet Voltaire -

cracy. This form shewn to be necessary: There being
no other, by which opinions could be justly punished by
civil Laws: And without such Laws against idolatry,' the
Mosaic Religion could not be supported.-The equity
of punishing opinions under a Theocracy, explained.
Bayle censured.--Foster confuted.—The Theocracy easily
introduced, as founded on a prevailing notion of tutelary

duction of the Theocracy, it is shewn, occasioned as
easy a defection from the Laws of it. The inquiry into
the reason of this leads to an explanation of the nature
of the Jewisha idolatry.-Lord Bolingbroke's accusation
of the Law of Moses examined and exposed, pp. 19482
