Сторінка 35 - For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Сторінка 34 - This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh : and these are contrary the one to the other : so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Сторінка 34 - But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
Сторінка 24 - ... sympathizing companion. I believe that in the future state the mind will have this power of conforming its outward frame to itself incomparably more than here. We must never forget that, in that world, mind or character is to exert an all-powerful sway; and accordingly, it is rational to believe that the corrupt and deformed mind which wants moral goodness, or a spirit of concord with God and with the universe, will create for itself as its fit dwelling a deformed body, which will also want concord...
Сторінка 18 - ... are not therefore reversed. It often happens that the sensualist, broken down by disease which excess has induced, comes to loathe the luxuries to which he was once enslaved ; but do his selfishness, his low habits of thought his insensibility to God, decline and perish with his animal desires?

The loss of sight or hearing...
Сторінка 13 - ... infallibly produce its full and immediate punishment. For suppose, my hearers, that at the very instant of a bad purpose or a bad deed a sore and awful penalty were unfailingly to light upon you ; would this be consistent with trial? Would you have moral freedom ? Would you not live under compulsion? Who would do wrong if judgment were to come like lightning after every evil deed ? In such a world fear would suspend our liberty and supersede conscience.
Сторінка 27 - I have spoken of the pains and penalties of moral evil, or of wrong-doing, in the world to come. How long they will endure, I know not. Whether they will issue in the reformation and happiness of the suf 20 ferer, or will terminate in the extinction of his conscious being, is a question on which Scripture throws no clear light.
Сторінка 21 - The publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
Сторінка 14 - There is nothing more striking in the mind than the connection of its successive states. Our present knowledge, thoughts, feelings, characters, are the results of former impressions, passions, and pursuits. We are this moment what the past has made us ; and to suppose that at death the influences of our whole past course are to cease on our minds, and...
Сторінка 34 - Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God : for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man : But every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lusts and enticed. Then, when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
