Sida 83 - But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen : and if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Sida 53 - So as we ought not to attempt to draw down or submit the mysteries of God to our reason ; but contrariwise to raise and advance our reason to the divine truth.
Sida 41 - What presence of mind, what subtlety, what truth in his replies ! How great the command over his passions ! Where is the man, where the philosopher, who could so live and so die, without weakness and without ostentation ? When Plato described his imaginary good man, loaded with all the shame of guilt, yet meriting the highest rewards of virtue, he describes exactly the character of Jesus Christ ; the resemblance was so striking, that all the fathers perceived it.
Sida 76 - ... considering its direct tendency to enlarge the understanding, and while it fills it with the contemplation of Deity, to purify and harmonize the passions, to refine the moral sense, to qualify and strengthen for every function in life, to sustain under the pressure of affliction, to afford consolation in sickness, and enable us to triumph in death ! What other science can...
Sida 49 - Now this, I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold I shew you a mystery ; We shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed...
Sida 95 - ... certain, because they grow, and whatever grows is nourished and spends, because otherwise it would not need to be repaired. 2. The body which a man hath at any time of his life is as much his own body as that which he hath at his death; so that if the very matter of his body which a man had at any time of his life be raised, it is as much his own and the same body as that which he had at his death...
Sida 84 - And who that contemplates with the mind of a philosopher this curious transformation, and knows that two years before the insect mounts into air, even while it is living in water, it has the rudiments of wings, can deny that the body of a dead man may, at some future period, be again invested with vigour and activity, and soar to regions for which some latent organization may have peculiarly fitted it.
Sida 95 - I think, pretended that the cannibals eat them; and if they did, so much of the matter even of these solid parts wastes away in a few years, as being collected together would supply them many times over. And as for the fleshy and fluid parts, these are so very often changed and renewed that we can allow the cannibals to eat them all up, and to turn them all into nourishment, and yet no man need contend for want of a body of his own at the resurrection—viz., any of those bodies which he had ten...
Sida 94 - For so much as our bodies grow, so much new matter is added to them, over and besides the repairing of what is continually spent ; and after a man be come to his full growth, so much of his food as every day turns into nourishment, so much of his yesterday's body is usually wasted and carried off by insensible perspiration, that is, breathed out...
Sida 41 - this just person (the inspired teacher of whom he had been speaking) must be poor, and void of all qualifications but those of virtue alone ; that a wicked world would not bear his instructions and reproofs ; and, therefore, within three or four years after he began to preach, he should be persecuted, imprisoned, scourged, and, at last, be put to death...
