And tho Lord said, 1 persecutcst.    : .  Permit nio Ju-st heiro to sny that wo tirtì oftbn taught that if we arc zealous, and honestly dp what we believe to be right, God will accept our service. But Saul wfui zealoua toward Godi ActH xxii: 3, 4Í, and yet the voice condemned him as a persecutor. Agftiu, we arc taught by, inaiiy <¿át if wo (lb what our conscienco; approves, God will, be well ploa-îcd. This position, also, is incorrocl, SaJjl of Tarsus w^us conseicntióu.s in peti^ccu-ting the aaints, both iiVcH ànd wotíión, to priaon and to death, .and tiays he thowght indeed tUat.hc ouglit to do many things «outi-â-ry to the name of Jesua of Naiareth, 'tvhich things lie did in Jentsalom.

Ì Tho«. Paine aaya, that ho had a conseicntious  I trial of his principles. After he had written tho first half of his foule,st work, he was reduced so low by fovcr that hifi physicir.n and friends gave him up to die ; that then m the faec of death, he approved of W'hat he had prtiyiously written. Bishop Watson, in reply truly says, that conscience is but our senso or docisiioa of our judgment of \vhat is right. How necessary theç t^t our judgment should be enlightened by :thc word of God. ' ■  But leti us return. Jesus said to Saul, It is hard foï thceto kick against the gpada— Wesley’s« (Translrition Acts ix*. 5. Tremblihg and aijtoHished, Saul said.

God's forgiveness ha did most earnestly desire and pray lor, but it v'as not tobe obtained by faith alone, or prayer alone, or ‘by rcpeutanco ak»ne, but he must wash away his Bins in baptisia. John Wesley says pn thi,« scripture : Baptisni adminiBtercd to real penitent« is both a uu-auK and a seal of pardon j nor did God ordinarily in the primitive church, bestow thia on . any except through thiji lueans.  i’oa like inquiry mauo on the laemorable :l\'hteco.-:t, ’jy tine«; thouiatul ponitents, Mon and brethren what shall wo do?
