Thus led on by ihe chain of cause and effect, it stops n'ol nor-res'ts .until it arrives .at the unciuaed the.JClerhal and, absolute 'foundation of all existence; This is the frame work of tlie idea of God.

This rriay serve lo explain ihe crisis and tendency of llie present agfi. Philosophy has at last broken from her thral. dom, and ranges al will among the mysteries of every science. Authority and tradition, the chains and fetters of the past, are lorn like cobwebs from Iho clastic limbs of free discussion, which now leaps furth like an armed mnn. Every syslem which knocks for admission at the portals of science, is challenged at the thresbholdi and if unsound, its elements are scattered lo Ihe Only on. the subject of religion ia this ten- dency repressed. Here it is thought impi- ous to. reason on Ihe Irullio of llie Ciule; or doctrines of-the church are thought too sacred, for philosophical analysis. The teachers of. religion, instead of satisfying man's and showing that the grear truths of the Bible are founded in the laws of his being, have endeavored lo frigliten man out of himself, and hang his faith dangling in doublRil existence upon some foreign sup- port. And what is tlie result? Reason, trampled on and insulted, ia-plaiting venge- ance against religion. Natural faith, the offspring of reason, lias died out of the hearts of men, while in its stead sits slimy skeptic- ism, mixing llie elements .of anarchy and who .Ij.itl liuinly, uruuiitl loin tha ciwiuins .of ru sc. silvering hill i- of] jier pose and for six ih'ousantl have struggled for the llirone of man's reli- gious ballere'c1. shield ments dyed in blood, the' combatants have met on many a dooblful field.

The.law enforces its claims as absolutely on him, as on the humblosl intelli genna in the.universe, nnd he can rise above ihoso claims. True, he may violitle them, he may turn a deaf ear to the calls of justice and benevolence; land dnsh the cup op- blessings from, the lipa of bis creatures. But his own intelligence, true to itself', would exrciile the sanctions of the violated law. start from this To deny il, is to deny his holiness, for holi- ness ie a mockery except in a being free to obey or disobey claims. Ere lime began, whife yet alone in existence, and knowing the happiness possible lo be created, he might have refused lo call it into life, thus smothering the embryo universe ere it burst inio being, and. burying it in his dwn bosom, as in a living Instead of the joyous life whiuh'now throbs through myriad worlds, creation might have lain darkling in while Oninicient VVisdorn slept onliis solita- ry'throne, and infinite power- in slagnanl idleness rolled in the channels of eternal lime.
