Excerpt from The Way of Salvation: A Sermon Delivered at Morris-Town, New Jersey, February 8, 1829 The original plan of the discourse, of necessity, precluded exten sive discussion. A few 'references, with a few notes on the most im portant topics presented, are now added - The sermon makes no pretensions to any new or original views. It is supposed to be no thing more than is indicated by its title - an outline of the way of salvation by the Gospel. Such, it is hoped, it will be found to be. One thing has been established, in the Author's view, by the deli very of this discourse, as well as by a very frequent and full, but temperate, exhibition of the leading-doctrines presented in it - that injury is not done in a revival by a full exhibition of God's plan of saving men according to his sovereign will and pleasure. No doctrine duringthe revival in this place has been more fully pre sented, than that God is a sovereign in the dispensation of his fat vurs; - that the sinner has on him no claim - that he is wholly de pendent for mercy -and that if God interpose not, he must die. At the same time, the truth has been as uniformly presented, that the obligation of the sinner is not measured by the favors he hopes to obtain. The duty of an immediate and unqualified surrender into his hands - of a direct and eternal renunciation of all acts of rebel lion - of an instantaneous submission to all the terms and require ments of the Gospel, and of an entire committing of all the interests of the soul to the hands of the God long hated, and of the Redeemer long set at nought and contemned. Has been urged with all the abili ty. That has been vouchsafed. By the Divine blessing on this united presentation of the doctrines of grace, and of man's obligation, so far as the Author of this discourse has had opportunity of knowing, most happy results have followed. The convicted sinner has felt the necessity of casting himself on the mercy of God, to be saved or lost at his will. Doing this, peace has followed; the burden of sin has been removed, and the blessings of redemption have distilled upon the spirit like the dews of the morning.
