An essay on religion. Demonstrating, that God's being, and existing as a Trinity in unity, and his attributes, are self-evident, by the universal and concurrent Witness of his Works; and that his Attributes are the only infallible Test of Truth. Or, Plain Reasons for believing the Great Misteries of the True Christian Religion; leaving no Room for any Doubt of the Truth, nor any Plea for implicit Faith. Shewing the Fallibility of Human Reason, and the Certainty of Divine Revelation; God's general and particular Providence; Predestination and Free Will; Man's Fall, Redemption, and final Perfection: Asserting, That the Want of trying our Reason by the Test of Truth, is the Cause of misunderstanding the Scriptures, and of all Error in Religion: And proving, That by that Test, we may clearly distinguish Truth from Error; and be certain in all Things, that God requires us to learn, believe, and practice, for our Temporal and Eternal Happiness. Introduc'd by a necessary dissertation on thought, and the wrong notion of free-thinking.
