"There is no question of greater importance to every individual of mankind than this;What is the nature of true religion? or wherein consists the distinguishing virtue, or that holiness, which is acceptable in the sight of God. But though it is of such importance, and though we have sufficient light in the word of God to direct us in the inquiry, yet there is no question upon which professing Christians are more divided. "Strait" indeed "is the gate, and narrow "indeed" is the way, that leads to life, and few there be that find it." The consideration of these things has long engaged my serious attention. Upon this subject my mind has been peculiarly intent ever since I entered on the study of divinity.How far I have succeeded in my inquiries, must be left to the judgment of the readers of this Treatise. Under the present circumstances of religious controversy in this country, it is difficult to judge impartially of the subject of this discourse. It is probable, that many readers will be displeased, upon finding so much of religious affections condemned; and others, upon finding so much approved. For thus discriminating, I shall, perhaps, be charged with inconsistency, as I have often been since the commencement of our late controversies about religion. Indeed, it was no easy matter to be a cordial and zealous friend of what was realty good; and at the game time perceive, and earnestly oppose what was evil and pernicious. It is truly mysterious, that so much that is wrong should be allowed to remain in the church of God. I hope this work will tend to promote the interest of religion. And whether I have succeeded or not, I hope, through the mercy of a gracious God, to obtain from him the acceptance of my endeavours, and from the real followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, their candour and their prayers"--Preface.
