Is interesting. Baptism is recorded in to xxvi 40. In verses-38, 39, our eng version has the following and they went Down both into the a both Philip and the Eun Noh and he sized him. And when they were Home oat of the water the spirit of the lord ought away Philip a amp of. This is the Sheet Anchor of immersion Ste. By dwell upon it on All occasions As Ough it were proof positive in favor of dip no. A a Why a say they a a is it so careful recorded that the parties went into the Ater and then that they oame out of the ter unless to show us that there was an version in the Case a says or. A Carson and i no More conscience than satan him. I Ronld not As a scholar attempt to r l immersion from this account a p. 128. Hope i shall not incur the Haish Imp Tion a plied in this language if instead trying to a a expel immersion a from the narrative i shall show that there is Nim. Version in it. In about a scripture word or Rase the. Final a Appeal is to the inspired Nal. Let us then inquire. With All Dor and sincerity. Whether the language the original implies that the parties went and came of of the water. In prosecuting this inquiry we must claim indulgence of the Reader if we Intro Cea number of greek terms and phrases this cannot Well be avoided at the same a we Hope i so to manage the discussion to enable even the unlearned to judge of Force and Val be of the argument. A into the every writer has some peculiarities of style. Shall therefore confine our references the acts of the apostles and Here Jour airy shall be in what sense does the Fri of the Book commonly use the same s he describing the baptism the eunuch. Our translators make him that the parties went into the water to does he really say so we think not. Greek word Eis translated into odours eleven times in the very same chapter it is translated into but once out of then and that once is where it is said by both went Down into the water is an astounding fast in verse 3d, read a committed them Eis to prison a a verse 25, a a returned Eisz to Jerusalem a in verse 40, a came Eis to Cesarea a so in other places. Our translators apr to have leaned so. Strongly to immersion to in the the eunuch they de a widely from their customary Render of words. Ere is another fact of much importance this connexion. When the greek Fri wished to express definitely the idea of a into they usually doubled the prep on Eis. That is they placed it before then and also prefixed it to the verb. In acts of the apostles there Are thirty instances of this kind. Here Are some. I a Miles Iii 2�?�?othem that entered into the a Eis to Hieron. 6�?�?o arise and go into the City Eis ten Polin. ,. 8�?�?o brought him into Damascus a Agen Eis damask on. Ill19�?�?o entered into the Syna a a Eis Elthon Eis ten Sun Gogen. Pm amp i 28�?�?o brought greeks into the pie Eise Gagen Eis to Hieron. Xxi 37�?~<tobe led into the Eastle tag Eshai Eis ten Pere Bolan. In the account of the eunuchs baptism it a single Eis is used. The words Are Sebesan ets. To Hudor. All this clearly Iowa that if the sacred writer. Had intent id to say into the water be would have pm Loyed his usual language to convey that idea. But there is another fact still Moye it Jeo Ive in the Case. The word m occurs a a be in the note of the apostles two Hun id and sixty times if have mounted Cor wetly. Of these it is translated into Only if. A nine times. And then of these fifty nine Mes there Are full Twenty six in which the Rord might very properly to rendered to toward. Indeed or a. Campbell in is version of the new testament in a Unm a of instances translates it to there oar version has it into. On the whole the Eye ence from this source alone is As eight to me that the inspired writer did not intend o say that Philip and the eunuch went in Toth water. Still it May be said that in the words Kate Besan Eis to Hudor the preposition Kata a prefixed to the verb gives to Eis the Force of into. Let us try it by a reference to similar expressions acts xxvi ,14-r�?o were All fallen a a to the Earth a Kaphe Hopton Eis ton Gen. Pie uhe xxvii 40�?�?oand made toward the Shore Katei Hon Eis Aigi Alon. To fall into the Earth and to sail into the Shore May suit zealous immersion Sta but. Nobody else. It May also be urged that there is something in the word Kate Besan combined with Eis which takes Philip and the ennui a into the water. Then let us try some passages where the very same combination occurs acts Viii 12�?�?othat goeth Down from Jerusalem unto Gaza a Atabai Nousand Eis Gazan. Xvi 8�?�?ocame Down to Troas a Kate Besan Eis Trovada. Xviii 22�?�?o went Down to Antioch a Kate be Eis Antio Pheian. Xxv 6�?�?o to Cesarea a a Tabas Eis Kaisa Reian. No one who understands language would talk of travelling out of Uniontown into Pittsburgh and As the Case now stands we verily believe that the evidence is As Twenty to one against the immersion Sta. A out of the Bat say friends a the parties came up out of the water and therefore must have been in the but does the inspired original say so the word translated out of is he and it is a known fact,.�that the greek writers when they wished the words to express the idea of going out of usually doubled the preposition Elk placing i before the noun and also prefixing it to the verb. The arts of the apostles affords is Twenty examples of the kind among which Are the 3�?�?o get thee out of thy country eks Elthe Elk Tes Ges Sou. Xii 42�?�?o gone out of the synagogue a Elk Sinton Elk Tes Sun Goges. A a Xix a a fled out of that House a Kph Gein Elk Tou Sikou. Xxvii 30�?�?o cast anchors out of the for Shipek pro rash est Engin. Inthe account of the eunuchs baptism. The words Are Ane Besan Elk Tau Datos. But a single Elk occurs. Now if the sacred writer meant to say a a Oire of the water a it is quite unaccountable that he should fail to express himself in the definite manner customary with him in such cases. A a on this Point we have still stronger proof. The word acc odours single in. The acts of the apostles sixty four times. Of these we Are astonished to Fin that it is translated out a Only five times and one of the five is said Ophi Ligand the eunuch that they a a came up out of the and can that be the precise idea which judging froth his language the sacred writer intended to convey a the evidence to the contrary is overpowering. Here Are some examples of Elk single arts ii 2�?�?othere came a sound from heaven a Ege Neto Elk Tou our Anou. Xiv 8�?�?oa cripple from his mothers. Womb a Holosek Kilias Metros.

Xiii 84�?�?o raised him a up dead �?�1 Anesteen Auton Elk we see that our translators in rendering Elk Tou Hud atos a out of the water give quite an Unn snal sense to the words. We May also remark in this place that they have Given a rather uncommon signification to the word Apo in Matt Iii 16. They Render it out of and thus make Matthew say that the. Saviour a came up out of. The and yet in Matthew alone they have translated it no less than sixty nine times from a and Only nine times out of a but Why after All and the ethiopian go Down to the water if there was a no immersion in the Case 1 i answer it was no very tedious journey. Very Likely they had not five Steps to take and it was quite natural that they should go Down from the Chariot to the Edge of the water so that the baptized might take up some in his hands and apply it to the. Subject who. Probably assumed a kneeling posture on the Shore. A Castle in the Clouds. Or. Carson thinks that John dip the jews without wetting himself but that a the place of baptizing the eunuch did not admit this most providentially a and hence it is said that they a a both went Down into the he adds that with a an apparent redundancy of expression the word both is twice repeated m to teach something that the spirit of inspiration foresaw would be denied a p. 131,. It seems a pity to disturb so pleasant a dream but the stubborn reality is that the a a apparent redundancy exists not in the original., the word mph Oberoi Bot occurs Bat once nor is there any other word in. The sentence which has that signification. The sacred historian adds that the ethiopian a went on his and in what ?. Not As alleged by immersion its in his baptism for in that Simon magus might have rejoined too. But he had now found a him of whom Mose in the Law and the prophets did it is on several Iao counts very improbable that the ethiopian was plunged. Philip Fellin his company on that part of the route from Jerusalem to Giza a a which is desert a verse 26. There surrounded by arid wastes and scorching Sands he explained to him a remarkable prophecy respecting Christ. That prophecy commencing near the close of the 52d chapter of Isaiah and continued through the 53d, other things foretold that Christ should a a Sprinkle Many this prediction doubtless,.gave occasion to Philip to speak of Christ s parting Oom Mand a go teach As nations baptizing them in the name of the father and. Of the 8on, and of the holy As they continued their journey they unexpectedly came upon a a certain water a and the new convert requested and received baptism. This could hardly have taken place at a River or even at a Small Stream for neither the term Potamos denoting the former nor Yehei Marros denoting the latter is used by the sacred writer. He says a a they came unto a a to Hudor a literally some water. Neither Jerome nor Sandys would find any considerable Stream or body of water in All that Region though they discovered., a Fountain issuing from the foot Ofa Hill the Paters of which were lost inthe Sands. Hieron de Loe. Heb. And Sandy a travels. Here or at a Pool formed in the desert by a Bidden ram the baptism May have taken place. I beg Pardon of the Reader for detaining him so Long in the desert. But it seemed necessary in order to overthrow a main pillar of that mischievous system which makes a Mere form of More importance than Faith or holiness and Oasis out among heathens and Puli Loans nine tenths of the members of Christ a mystical body. May the time soon come when that system saturated As it is with exclusiveness and bigotry shall be immersed like Lead in the mighty Waters to Rise no More forever l. N. D. Tor the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Beli Erion of betters to a Friend of the doctrines and . Letter via sin and salvation. For sin is the transgression of the Law.�?1. John Iii 4. A a my dear Friend a in my former letters i have directed your attention to god and his Law. God is he exists he roles Over All and he has Given is a Law which is holy just and1 Good.1�?bom. Vii 12. This Law we Are bound a to obey j but we have broken it and a a hence guilty and condemned what can a we it do a a this it Jues a Tion concerns you and you read these lines not to be pleased with the eloquence of words but to inquire about your salvation and learn the Way of life. Personally interested in this matter you inquire what you must do to be saved and hence the subject on which Yon desire to be addressed is the one i have chosen sin and salvation. You will allow me then to devote two or three letters to this subject and if i say anything that is not suited to your a Oase As very Likely i May you can of course give it Only that consideration which it May seem to deserve. I shall speak plainly but kindly and i Hope what i say May be of some service to you. Quot it May serve to give you clearer views of your sins and of the Way of salvation through Jesus Christ sin and salvation. These Are intimately connected for salvation is deliverance from sin and hence if there were no sin there could be no salvation. Jesus came not to fall the righteous but sinners to repentance. A Matt in 13. Salvation has no relation to a fallen beings. The sinless Angels Are not saved a they never fell they have always been holy and Happy. Salvation has no reference to them though they Are deeply interested in the scheme of redemption and earnestly desire to look into these things. �?1. Pet i 12. For the fallen Angels no salvation is provided. Christ takes not hold of them to save them hence he took not on him their ii 14�?18. They Are reserved in chains hopeless and despairing unto the judgment of the great i. But for sinful Man there is salvation not in himself not in his own strength nor by his own works but in god through Jesus Christ for god so loved the world that he gave his Only Begotten Sony that whosoever Beli Eveth in him should not perish but have everlasting Iii 16 a the world had sinned god a gave his son to a save it1 and whosoever Beli Eveth shall be saved sin and 1 Sal vation then Are closely connected they have a relation to each other or rather salvation Moab relation to sin and to sinners. A were there no sin there could be no salvation there would be no necessity for it no room for it for salvation is deliverance from sin and hence the blessed redeemer is called Jesus Saviour because he saves his people from their .

This is the subject about which now in your feebleness you wish to read salvation from sin and in comparison with this there is no other subject worthy of your attention this is the one thing needful / this fills your head with anxious solicitude sin a and salvation1 a salvation from sin deliverance from sin and misery Grace Here and glory hereafter for the lord gives Grace and glory.

For All practical purposes it is general and Universal. I am instructed to offer its benefits freely to All men. This is my commission a a preach the gospel to every creature he that Beli Eveth shall be saved. He that Beli Eveth not shall be the hearer cannot claim to know the secret purpose of god regarding himself any farther than this if he requires god to forego his own divine fore ordination and election and even his foreknowledge before it he / can accept the free offer he must Hng his unreasonable delusion and perish.

Here is our. Legitimate clue to the secret purposes of god. A a these Eret of the lord is with them that fear him and he will show them his in All other respects the secret things belong unto god but the things that Are revealed belong unto us and to our j. For tha presbyterian Banner and adv car a definite atonement and the Universal offer. Many find great practical difficulties in doctrine of a definite or particular atonement with the Universal offer of the gospel. How say they can god consistently offer to All men the Bene. Fits of Christ a death or How can we preach to All men the free offer of salvation if the atonement was not made equally for All. What is the meaning of the word a a atonement a in the scripture ? it is. Defined in a the whole old testament Economy illustrated in All the ancient sacrifices it is reconciliation Between god and the sinner effected by a vicarious sacrifice. If the sacrifice a in a its very nature be Mca Riouse it is instead of some one it is offered in his room. This was its nature of old and this is the nature of Christ a sacrifice. A a a he was wounded for our transgressions and by his stripes we Are but if Christis sacrifice was in the Stead of those who Are atoned for it was an atone ment for All my or for some Only. If he stood As a sacrificial victim bearing the penalty in the room and Stead of All men alike of a a Judas As much a John a a then All men must be released from the penalty by his substitution Ary sacrifice. This we uld be the doctrine of Universal salvation. But this doctrine is every where denied in the1 scripture. He is the Shepherd of the sheep the head , the Church a Judas went. A to his own the atonement if a vicarious transaction must be particular just As the sacrifices of old were in their very nature particular and personal if As some contend it was Only a to make satisfaction to Public Justice and a general exhibition of gods hatred to sin with nothing particular. In. It then indeed it is nothing particular and it amounts to nothing in particular but every believer wants to feel that it is something particular and2personal to himself. A nothing Lesb will satisfy him. His console use can never be soothed until he see the very stroke of Justice which he merited fall on the head of his adorable and All sufficient and. Accepted substitute. But if the salvation of Only portion of the race be designed and atnally secured by this atonement How Cam we offer the gospel benefits freely to All ?4. Let us say then that plainly there is a divine aide and a human Side to this great subject As it is presented in the scripture As regards the divine Side gods ways Are higher than on ways. He has his eternal counsels who could suppose that he had made such costly provision for sinners with no plan and. No certainty As to the saving result8 in any Oase a suppose he has Only made an ample provision for All and freely1 invited a All not securing the acceptance of any. Then 1st, an important it an of the in this or that Region will bring it. About. Such Sequina Respre suppose revived religion and consecrated Talent seeking training and direction. The of a the synodical it of Wouri Iowa Illinois and Indiana might humanly speaking spin Cre Ato a demand for a theological the Norfor West 1 Quot a Quot i = Quot a 4. I do not be kerb that 4here,ik/yet/ any need of tic proposed our gbureh1 for the Freeby Theriau Renner and advocate. Another theological Seminary. It has been published that a to be established in the North West probably in the neighbourhood of Chicago some thoughts and que Ries have Arisen in my mind upon this matter which-1 beg leave to submit to All concerned. ,1. Our Church has no doubt defined her policy in reference education. She decrees and provides for her ministry an extended professional training. Be commends theological seminaries As affording in the main the Best facilities to those who arc preparing for the sacred office. And whatever May be our private estimate of1 such institutions they certainly form at this Day a part of a the churches machinery 2. Our general Assembly has founded first Princeton then Allegheny Quot then Danville. Synodical Enterprise has added Union Columbia and new Albany. The history of these successive foundations the causes which brought them about and their positive of comparative usefulness need not stay to recount or discuss. I Only note herein a determination to enjoy More than one Centre of education influence. There is that in on people which refuses centralization consolidation a whether in Church or state. Every six or eight synods or every natural division of our territory that promises to comprise so Many claims for itself a theological Seminary. This seems to be already past argument or regret. It is a a a fixed it is the order of the Day and it May be expected to go on for years to Home. Three seminaries for the Pacific our country with at least two More Between ithe Mississippi and the Rocky mountains will in their turn be projected make their appeals and achieve their position. It would be foreign to my purpose Here to consider the possible operation of in the location of our boards or in the foundation of future syn Odich a colleges. I beg Pardon of Jefferson and Princeton a whom i love in the truth a but synodical colleges and presbyterian academies Are Normal in the Church and to the West at East they Are necessary., 3. There is such a thing As pushing this work to fast and too far. There is a prudence which should be specially exercised in the founding of theological a a seminaries these institutions Are costly both of men and of Means. They May he set on foot prematurely. They May be. Too numerous they maybe unwisely distributed. In fact the questions of place in commencing one of these great enterprises Are of decided importance and difficulty i will venture a opinion upon some of the Points they involve having reference a to motives actually be Maddress de to the churches. 1. I think that the founding of. A theological-.,Seminary, in it by Given a District order of time and of propriety come after the founding of those institutions which Iareto be their feeders. A 2. I think that no proposition to endow a theological Seminary should be presented or urged so As in Anywise to prevent or to Lessen contributions to our boards. 3. I think a theological Seminary is called for when it is found that there Are theological students who cannot be accommodated and trained at our existing institutions. But it. Strikes me with Surprise to hear it argued that a new Seminary is needed because of the newness of theological students and candidates for the Ini is try. The Blessing of god upon academies and colleges a revival of religion anywhere a May soon increase the number of candidates for the ministry but i perceive colleges Are yet Lajti a the if of a a a bad tips Aii d the Wical the Ieta Sareno clan Fried cd fit a a to my Row is while Imbe Ghura Chunati Large we have Ahe Ady Moro in epic Ica snip a Thano we a can Man with in femurs end a with Means or fill with ave sew al Hatry to a ii stir by Tion it most be confessed has not secured the Confidence nor fulfilled the expectations of the can Robes in the West. And besides since the establishment by the g eneral Assembly of the school at Danville operations at new. Albany Wear somewhat the appearance of factious Ness and have been the occasion of Unbro therly and unbecoming feeling on both sides. I am prepared to. Bay that new Albany should he Given up and if a the condition be a new a a first class a Seminary in and for the North West i for one accept it and shall co operate As i. May have Opportunity. 5. The founding of such an institution is a matter of general interest in the churches. Every Section of territory every member of Thech Roh has a right to know Alt about it. Here eminently we should a a provide things honest in the sight of All no supposed rivalries or antagonisms no local or personal interests should suppress any particulars a a a a a presuming then that i shall not be deemed impertinent As there Are. Some Points upon which i am not fully reformed i beg leave to append the following queries 1. Is the proposed Seminary a new institution or Only the new Albany Seminary transferred to Chicago,.2-. Is it ominous of anything that the Synod of Missouri the next neighbor to Chicago and the Northwest is not invited to Sharo in the Enterprise ? a 3. Is it significant of anything in the future Workings of the proposed Seminary that its first two and As yet Only professors do not sustain Pur general Assembly in the exp finding acts Are we to have from the North West a Stream of Cool Mode racism to permeate our churches ? 4. W by so prompt to elect professors for this institution ? were there funds secured for their support had Public opinion matured and expressed itself did the Kings business indeed require this haste ? 5. May we see in print the basis the Constitution and the charter if any has yet been secured for this institution ? we would Fain see and Noto Tho guaranty the Church has that Here As elsewhere her doctrine polity and policy shall foe illustrated and defended. 6.
