INTRODUCTION.

When we look around us, and observe how many conflicting creeds and systems of religion are sedulously propagated in the present day, our reflections on the subject should lead us highly to appreciate the privileges of which we may avail ourselves; the light of Christ being given to illuminate our minds, and the Holy Scriptures being placed within our reach, to which we can refer for instruction. In the Sacred Records, the doctrine preached by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, on the subject of the Redemption of Man, is clearly exhibited. As no other subject of equal interest and importance can be presented to us, may these few pages, designed to point out from this high authority the way by which all mankind may come to the knowledge of the Truth and be saved, prove the means, under the divine blessing, not only of convincing the merely nominal Christian of the imminent danger he is in; but also of encouraging the weak, yet sincere believer, to hold fast the “grain” of living faith ; (Matt. xvii. 20 ;) that so, amid all the conflicts with which he may be proved, his confidence may be steadily
