THE mystery of the ever-adorable Trinity is the foundation of the Christian religion, and is firmly to be believed and assented to, though incomprehensible to human reason. What the Christian Church teaches us, with regard to this mystery, in a faw words, is this. There is only one supreme Eternal God, Creator of heaven and earth, in three divine Persons, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, really distinct one from the other. For the Father is not the Son, nor the Holy Ghost; nor is the Son the Father, or the Holy Ghost; nor is the Holy Ghost the Father, or the Son. The Father is from no other: The Son was born of the Father from all eternity, and is equal to him in power and majesty, of the same nature and substance: The Holy Ghost proceeds from the Father and Son from all eternity, is equal to them in power and majesty, of the same nature and substance with them. So that the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are the One, supreme, Eternal Being; and consequently, tho' the Father be God, the Son be God, and the Holy Ghost be God, they are butOne God equally to be praised, adored, and worshiped for ever.
Let us therefore this day beg of Almighty God to pre* serve us in this faith, and continue to teach us to submit our reason to revelation. Let us offer our prayers for Vol. Tt. a
