MOTTOES.

I. “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” (Col. iii.)

II.

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” (John i.)

III.

“These things speak and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.” (Titus ii.)

IV.

“We would have the utmost charity possible ; but we must have honesty too." (C. H. SPURGEON.)

V.

"Ignorance makes many priests. Faith knows but one...... Christ's priesthood is a theme which time cannot exhaust. It is a theme for which eternity is too short.” (DEAN LAW.)

VI.

“Who is my mother, or my brethren ?.... Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” (Mark iii. 33,35.)

VII.

“Q. 13. Have we borne a sufficient witness to the truth? Particularly when attacked by the clergy ? ?"

A. Perhaps not. We have generally been content with standing on the defensive,

Q. 14. May not this cowardice have hindered the work of God ? And have caused us to feel less of his power ?

A. Very probably it may.
Q. 15. How shall we act in such cases for the time to come ?

A. Not only refute, but retort the charge. Their mouths must be stopped, (only in meekness and love,) and the eyes of others opened. (Minutes of Conference, 1745.)-See Mark xi. 27—33.
