Strana 208 - The stationariness of religion; the assumption that the age of inspiration is past, that the Bible is closed; the fear of degrading the character of Jesus by representing him as a man; indicate with sufficient clearness the falsehood of our theology. It is the office of a true teacher to show us that God is, not was; that He speaketh, not spake.
Strana 77 - It is a nest of wasps, or swarm of vermin which have overcrept the land. I mean the Monopolies and Pollers of the people : these, like the Frogs of Egypt, have gotten possession of our dwellings, and we have scarce a room free from them. They sup in our cup.

Strana 208 - But the word Miracle, as pronounced by Christian churches, gives a false impression; it is Monster. It is not one with the blowing clover and the falling rain.
Strana 136 - Place ; and to repeal so much of an Act made in the Twelfth Year of the Reign of King CHARLES the Second...
Strana 167 - Majesty, however, engages, that no British establishment shall be made on the Carimon Isles, or on the islands of Battam, Bintang, Lingin, or on any of the other islands south of the Straits of Singapore, nor any treaty concluded by British authority with the chiefs of those islands.
Strana 47 - A man so various, that he seem'd to be Not one, but all mankind's epitome...
