A Christian ministry and the sacraments Are not non essentials and i i must condemn the Arians calvinists and quakers and Tell them they err not knowing the scriptures nor the Power of god and i am sure the scriptures Are evidently against them. think you. But they read the scripture As much As you they Are equally interested in finding out the truth As you they Are As Learned As you and make use of the six qualifications As much As you. Ami vet they come to opposite conclusions. And Why should you be right and All the rest of the world wrong a son.�?1 must confess i conversed with a unitarian gentleman some time ago and he pretended to make use of these Means and told me he became a unitarian by those Means. But i can give you a reason Why a methodist should be right and All the rest wrong. The methodists teach the direct witness of the spirit of god bearing witness with our spirits that we Are the children of god and st. John tells us a a you have an unction from the holy one and you know All now no one of these sects teaches the doctrine of the spirit so powerfully As the methodists and consequently they have not so much of the unction from the holy one nor do they know All things. Mere fact of the methodists teaching a doctrine does not prove it to be True. In the second Dace you say they do not teach this doctrine so fully and enjoy it so fully As the methodists. You no doubt know their doctrines better than i and you conclude that because they do not teach it so fully they do not enjoy it so full. But do not the quakers and calvinists too pretend to the spirit and May not a person feel More than be can express however it i it not my business to defend them you believe they teach and enjoy it to a certain degree. 1 will now ask you two questions. Arc they the children of god Mason with some hesitation .�?1 dare not say they Are not. 1 believe Many of them Are Good people. , if Good people they Are the children of god therefore they must have the spirit of a Quot a for it is written a a because be Are sons god hath sent Forth the spirit of his son into your hearts crying now Why the spirit of god cannot or does not teach them As fully by its unction and give them As fully to enjoy its influence As a methodist 1 cannot understand. i meant to say was that they Are not so fully the children of god nor do they possess so much of the plenitude of the spirit As the methodists. fully and so much really. Or. Mason i cannot understand you. Do you mean to say a Mao May be partly a child of god and partly a child of the Devil did not say so. I believe there Are Only two classes and two places. I hold no Purgatory still i think one child of god Moro in his favor than another and if so May know More and experience More of the spirit than another. i discussing Purgatory 1 would seize your lost admission and notwithstanding your dislike of Purgatory you would get a singe. But the question is not whether one person May live up to Bis Faith Mure Thau another or attain a higher degree of holiness than his neighbor hut the question is a hither he can he a child of god and not have the spirit of god. cannot he a child of god without the spirit of god for it is written a a if any Man have not the spirit of Christ he is none of m this spirit teach a calvinist or Quaker one doctrine by its unction and a methodist another by the same uni lion m cannot. M you he so kind As to explain to me ii Oak a calvinist or Quaker can have the spirit of god and its teaching unction and yet err not knowing the scriptures nor the Power of god Mason stirring up a cup of Hawaii h had just been brought a excuse me sir i feel rather confused. M arts no Irish a Good natured laugh upon his couple Kanrr a All my Friend if you arc confused it is one of those rare circumstances in which confusion arises from clearness of perception. You see plainly that the spirit us Well As the word of god cannot teach contradiction and yet contradictions abound among those who profess to have the spirit and the unction teaching All things. The other question 1 was about to propose but which is in part rendered unnecessary by your confusion was this do the methodist preachers believe themselves infallible by the auction of the spirit have already disclaimed infallibility for myself and so do All the to know that we mud err. you All May err Bow can you lift up yourselves above All others and say you have the direct witness of the spirit and its unction teaching All things.
