Strana 14 - And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal ? will ye save him ? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning : if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar.
Strana 14 - Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Strana 9 - Sam. iv. 17, 18. • 74 Q. What did the Philistines do with the ark of God? A. They brought it into the house of their idol, Dagon, and the idol fell down and broke off his head and his hands upon the threshold, 1 Sam.
Strana 9 - Testament, published by the Unitarian Society for promoting Christian knowledge, and the practice of virtue, by the distribution of books.
Strana 3 - Pharisees, though the first who seem to have perverted the word, and though immoderately attached to their own tenets, ever reproached them as blasphemers, on account of their erroneous opinions. Nor is indeed the epithet blasphemous, or any synonymous term, ever coupled in Scripture (as is common in modern use) with doctrines, thoughts, opinions.

And if so in this case, they may be so in other cases where they have used the language of the Old Testament.
Strana 10 - ... sacred writings. Some of the facts have a fabulous appearance, and the reasoning from the prophecies of the Old Testament is inconclusive. Also, if this account be true, the proper name of Jesus, according to the uniform custom of the Jews, would have been Jesus of Bethlehem, not Jesus of Nazareth. Our Lord in the Gospels is repeatedly spoken of as the son of Joseph, without any intimation, on the part of the historian that this language is incorrect.
Strana 3 - I have a right to disbelieve; and that of which any man, and every man, has full liberty to express his unbelief; for any man may express unbelief in every Christian dogma without being guilty of blasphemy. Gentlemen, having proceeded thus far, the next thing to which I wish to call your attention, is the meaning of the word blasphemy. For although the law which has been read to you in some measure defines it, yet the original meaning of the term as defined by the learned, will certainly, with you,...
Strana 24 - Do unto another what you would he should do unto you, and do not unto another what you would not should be done unto you. Thou only needest this law alone ; it is the foundation and principle of all the rest.
