Severe as the imputations are which the Bible records against men as sinners, and though they are imputations which no man naturally submits to, and which, if untrue, prove this book to be a false accuser; yet do good men uniformly acquiesce in them, while the best of men have the strongest convictions of their truth. THE BOOK OF ECCLESIASTES EXPLAINED. BY JAMES M. MACDONALD, D.D., PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY. It is not the Expectation of living that makes Men infer the Reasonableness or Necessity of a Judgment, but the reasonableness and natural Expectation of Judgment which makes them infer the Necessity and Reality of a future Life.—SHERLOCK’S SERMONS, vol. i., p.

There is no special providence over the life of the wicked, as Job had supposed, or pretended to suppose (Job ; compare Job ). On the contrary, God "overturneth" wicked men "in the night, so that they are destroyed; he striketh them as wicked men in the open sight of others" (Job ). Contra Celsum, Book I. could take up his abode in any city or country without divine permission, since no good happens to men without the help of God. And if he who has cured the bodies of many, have rashly concluded that there is no divine providence at all, and have adopted the views of Epicurus and Celsus. Chapter

3) sins against mercy will bring the greatest and sorest judgments on men 4) though God's general mercy is over all His works, yet His special mercy is confined to those that are divinely qualified 5) the saints now glorified regarded God's mercy as a most powerful argument against, and not for, sin. VI. The account of Job’s experiences during that relatively short period of his life teaches us a very powerful lesson. We live in a world that is still ruled by Satan. That has been the case since Adam and Eve gave their allegiance to Satan by doing.

THE ARGUMENT This Psalm is penned upon the same occasion with Psalm 39 to wit, upon the contemplation of the afflictions of God’s people and of the prosperity and glory of ungodly men The design is to justify God’s providence in this dark dispensation, and to show that, all things being considered, good men have no cause for immoderate dejection of spirit, nor wicked men for.

Because God is good and forgiving, David petitions Him to preserve him in mercy B. Because God is incomparably able to do anything, David prays, asking for instruction from God C.

Because the proud have risen up against him, David asks for strength from his loving God, asking for a pledge LXXXVII. PSALM Glorious Zion. Job After the Lord had spoken these words unto Job — Jehovah, having confounded all the false reasonings of Job, and sufficiently humbled his pride, now proceeds to the condemnation of the principle upon which his three friends had proceeded in all their speeches, which principle he declares not to be right.

he speaks of the blessings and ills of life, which then, as always, happened to good and bad men. The problem then with the skeptic’s argument regarding the problem of evil is two-fold: (1) It assumes God does not have a morally sufficient reason for allowing evil and (2) It fails to take into account the Christian doctrine of heaven and the final eschatological consummation of all things, including the end of all evil, pain, and suffering.

It is against the laws both of honour and friendship to do a man an ill-turn and give him no warning. Cursed be he that smites his neighbour secretly. It is a most base ungrateful thing, if our neighbours have a good opinion of us, that we will do them no harm, and we.

A man may have a competent portion of the good things of this life, and yet may keep himself in the love of God; but he who sets his heart upon the world, who places his happiness in it, and will conform himself to it, and do any thing rather than lose its friendship, he is an enemy to God; it is constructive treason and rebellion against God.

If, says he, these people worshipped one God alone, and no other, they would perhaps have some valid argument against the worship of others. But they pay excessive reverence to one who has but lately appeared among men, and they think it no offense against God if they worship also His servant.

It concerns us to be deeply humbled for the sins we are convinced of, and not to rest in a slight superficial displeasure against ourselves for them. Even good people, that have no gross enormities to repent of, must be greatly afflicted in soul for the workings and breakings out of pride, passion, peevishness, and discontent, and all their.
