The ensuing discourse is the last of three up «on the same subject, with some little alterations and additions. It is hoped that but few will think the subject of it, an improper one to be discoursed on in the pulpit, under a notion that this is preaching politics, instead of christ. However, to remove all prejudices of this sort, I beg it may be remember ed, that all script11re-is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in Why, then, should not those parts of scripture which relate to civil government, e examined and explained from the desk, as well as others? Obedience to the civil magistrate is a christian duty and if so, why should not the nature, grounds and extent of it be considered in a christian assembly? Besides, if it be said, that it is out of character for a christian minister to meddle with such a subject, this censure will at last fall upon the holy apostles. They write upon it in their epistles to christian churches and surely it cannot be deem ed either criminal or impertinent, to attempt an ex planation of their'doetrine.
