dangerous concession-a concession of the very points which chiefly render' Protestanism worth contending for? Shall we be blamed if we aim our cry of “No Popery,” not at avowed Papists, but professed Protestants ; and if we are less anxious to exclude the former from a participation of our civil franchises, than we are to guard our own hearts, and those of our readers, from the destructive influence of their religious errors ?

But, in the second place, there are not a few Protestants, who, in avoiding the errors just mentioned, have run into an opposite extreme, no less blameable and dangerous. The Antinomian heresy appears to us to be as much at variance with true Protestanism as the spirit of Popery itself. Its leading doctrines are, the eternal justification and imputed sanctification of redeemed sinners. The only evidence required to entitle a man to regard himself as a member of this privileged' body, is the persuasion that he belongs to it; and this persuasion is made the substitute for that “ faith which worketh by lov

love” and holy obedience. Conformably to these views, the believer is set free from the obligations of the Moral Law as a rule of life : even repentance is no longer a duty ; sanctification is no longer a progressive but a finished work; and the Holy Spirit ceases to be the Author of conversion, or even to be a Party to the Covenant of Grace.

Such is the Antinomianism of the present day. Its perversions of scriptural truth are so monstrous that it would be a flagrant dereliction of our duty not to watch their development, and not to endeavour, to the best of our feeble powers, to expose their tendency, and to arrest their progress.

But while we feel it to be incumbent on us strenuously to contend against the opposite errors to which we have briefly adverted, we are anxious to be enabled to conduct every controversy in which we may be engaged, in a spirit of kindness and moderation, of truth and love. The wrath of man, we are well assured, worketh not the righteousness of God.

And we would impress it upon our own minds, as well as on those of our readers, that “ there will come a time when three words uttered with charity and meekness shall receive a far more blessed reward than three thousand volumes written with disdainful sharpness of wit."*
