    Duty Faith Dissected And Discarded

    The reader is presented in the following pages with a perspicuous and full discussion of an important subject, both to the ministers and hearers of the glorious gospel; to the former, that they may take heed how they preach, and to the latter, that they may take heed how they hear. It is indeed granted, that a divine power accompanying the word is necessary to raise a dead sinner; but it is a question of closer enquiry, upon which men widely differ, how that power is given. We may observe two high instances of addresses to the dead, in the cases of the dry bones and of Lazarus; which are frequently produced by the advocates for universal exhortations, but, if we accurately investigate the divine…

    The History Of Fullerism

    The question on whether it be the duty of unregenerate sinners to believe on Christ to the saving of their souls] has been irrefutably, because scripturally, answered again and again, by most able writers in their day and generation. I have a treatise on the subject, written 123 years ago (1738), by Mr. Wayman, of Kimbolton, in reply to a Mr. Morris, of Rowell; which sets the question at rest. But the Baptist churches (generally speaking) were sound in the faith until about the year 1776, when three young men scraped an acquaintance, and became very intimate. Their names were John Sutcliffe, aged 24; John Ryland, jun., aged 23; and Andrew Fuller, Aged 22. This trio met together for the first time on May 28,…

    4 Hyper Calvinist Quotes

    Below are twenty-five more statements made by Hyper Calvinists: J. Foreman: “If it be the natural man's duty to believe unto salvation, then it must be the natural man's duty for God himself to be to him all what by promise and gift he is to those who through grace do believe unto salvation; and then it must be the natural man's duty for the eternal God to be to him a covenant God - a Redeemer - a Shepherd - a Saviour - a Preserver - a Comforter - a Rock, Refuge, Sun, Shield, High Tower, Horn of Salvation, and Strength - the God of all grace - a Guide - a Father and portion for ever.

    The Two Preachers

    The Moral Preacher The smooth-tongu'd, moral preacher thus begins:— Repent, believe, leave off your former sins;  Attend the worship of the temple true, And see you give to ev'ry man his due. Bestow your alms likewise when you see need,  The naked clothe, the hapless orphan feed. And when you fail (for all come short sometimes),  Repent again; be sorry for your crimes. Thus if from day to day you ever live, Depend upon it, God will you forgive. Mind not what preachers do, but what they say;  And safe to heav'n this will your souls convey.

    The Life And Testimony Of William Bright

    About a year or two ago one Sunday, a young man came to my house with some tracts; I asked him in; he told me he doing God’s work, asked if I ever read the Bible, and many other things of the duty-faith school. I said, ‘my Bible tells me, God would work, and none should hinder; and that his grace was saving, rich, and free;’ he was puzzled, replying he did not get anything for doing it. He took his leave, no doubt thinking what a hyper he had met with; I was never asked for that tract, never was another one brought; but he was one of the Lord’s little ones; so the Lord taught him. He had a grandfather, a good and…

    3 Hyper Calvinist Quotes

    Below are twenty-five more statements made by Hyper Calvinists: J. Hupton: “The faith under consideration is a blessing of the covenant of grace. This you must either admit or deny. If you deny it, you renounce the gospel, which says, that faith is the gift of God. That he chose his people to the belief of the truth; that he gives them on the behalf of Christ, to believe on his name; that when he calls them to believe, it is according to his own purpose and grace given them in Christ, before the world began;---and that, his covenant is ordered in all things, and sure; and, therefore, must include faith. If you admit of it, then you must give up the point in dispute;…
