Sermon one is prefaced by a note from the publisher to the reader which you might find interesting . . . Dated 1760.
Sermon One "And this is His commandment, that we should believe on the Name of Jesus Christ, and love one another" "It is a common doctrine often declared unto you, that the most part of those who hear the gospel do run, in their pretended course to heaven, either upon a rock dashing discouragement, or the sands of sinking presumption."
Sermon Two "This is His Commandment etc..." I. John iii - 23 "We commonly make many rules in religion, and turn it into a laborious art, full of intricate questions, precepts, and contentions"
Sermon Three - As Above "There are different tempers of mind among men, some more smooth and pliable, others more refractory and froward. Some may be persuaded by love, who cannot be constrained by fear."
Sermon Four - James iii:14 "But if ye have envy and bitter strife in your hearts, glory not...."It is a common evil of those who hear the gospel, that they are not delivered up to the mould and frame of religion that is holden out in it, but rather bring religion into a mould of their own invention"
Sermon Five - James iii:14 "But if ye have bitter envying," &c." "The cunning of Satan, and the deceitfulness of our own hearts, are such that when a grosser temptation will not prevail with a conscience in some measure enlightened, then they transform themselves . . ."
Sermon Six - Matth. xi. 28."Come unto me, all ye that labour," &c.- "It is the great misery of Christians, that they have such poor, narrow, and limited spirits, that are not fit to receive the truth of the gospel in its full comprehension"
