NOT THE DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE.
THOMAS DAVIS, M.A.
INCUMBENT OF ROUNDHAY,
The following discourses, with the exception of one, which was delivered more recently, were addressed in the spring of last year to a country congregation, consisting almost exclusively of gentry and their servants. My aim was to be as intelligible to both as moderate justice to my subject would permit.
In publishing them now my object is threefold : first, to afford those among whom I minister an opportunity of weighing deliberately the arguments already addressed to them; next, to vindicate my own position, as one who has assured them that he cannot with a pure conscience preach any other doctrine on future punishment than that which they have long heard from him ; and further, to contribute in some small degree to remove what I believe to be with many a serious hindrance to faith in the Scriptures.
