s are high. It may introduce the arts of civilized nations; it may refine the manners of the heathen; it may cultivate the minds of children. But these are not its high, its proper work. They are subsidiary, or at the utmost collateral; for these advantages may be conferred, and the people left after all in darkness and the very shadow of death. An Evan gelical mission is sent forth to rescue the souls of men from the dominion of Satan, and to set up the kingdom of Christ in their hearts. The preaching of Christ crucified can alone do this. All missions have the same object. Wherever con ducted, amongst scorching sands or eternal snows - however managed, by Episco palian or Dissenter - by layman or clergyman - the message is all the same Christ and Him crucified.And in carrying on this ministry, the missionary has some advantages. For the most part he is obliged to dwell, to the exclusion of all debateable questions, those on which Evangelical Christians differ, upon the great commanding features of the Gospel - o. G., the sinner's need of Christ, His perfect sufficiency, and the work of the Holy Ghost within us. Upon these points there is no room for difference of opinion; and in preaching to the heathen, these must be the prevailing, if not the exclusive topics. The essential unity of the missionary work is more evident.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
