Temptation---Triumph:
}OW frequent, 'neeth the ills of life,
My weary soul sinks down
When shall I be at rest, my God?
When cross eaehange for crows?
o grant me patience, Lord, to wait
Until my+ Saviour come ;
To otilme from this tollrnl earth,
To rest, in peace, at Home
So oft, alas my erring steps,
In• devious courses stray ;
Ting, with Ohtist, forevermore
To walk the Perfect Way.
O Saviour, bid my wayward feet
~ ...No,,morp„from thee to roam ;

0 lead me from, the Tempter's way
0 shield me from his power!
Or give me grace to firmer stand,
in dread temptation's hour.
Would that these conflicts all were past,
And all these foes o'ercome;
That, freed from sin and Satan's snares,
My soul might hasten Rome
But hush, my heart r thy murmured ,plaint
Mine eye, dispel thy tear !
The Shepherd's tender voice proclaims
A pease to all thy fear.
Though in the world distressful cares, ,
And sorrows shell be thine"!
Be 'sheered I I luive o'ereome the world,
And ye, oh ye are mine."
Then pardon, Lord, the rebel heart
That rose against thy will ;
That prayed deliverance from the world,
Not safety from its ill.
0 teach my soul, with stronger faith,
And brighter hope to pray ;
Nor let me more the promise doubt,

BENEFITS OF THE • ATONEMENT NOT DE
SIGNED •NOR ALL, CONTINUED.
5. Again : The saving benefits of Christ's
death were not designed. alike' for all men,
for the reason that.all have not heard of the
benefits thus provided. Can any intelligent
man really believe that the Father and the
Son; from all eternity, 'designed the sav i ng
benefits of Christie death for all men alike,
and yet never give them information of the
fact that he- died-for• them at all 7 It is no
answer to 01'1 diffiohity to say that this
arises from the .Apathy
Church. This may ;be admitted Without, re
lieving the objector; for: "all power in
Heaven and'on Earth" in the Church-and
out of it, is lodged In the hands'of the -Al
might Redeemer ; be is "made head
over all things to the Church a.,

preine iecintrol* , ocierethe 441Rd6 btiniverektp
of rfiatteirM mation, and of mind;''lkitli,
spe'Cial rererence to the Benefit of' tile
Church. So;that thirgrinfOrAergiqri'conldie
if such had been hispurposei laavemakedup
the energies of a slumbering Church, to
transmit this important information to all the
nations; and certainly, would haVe done so,.
if he had died, designing by his death to
save them all. Instead of this,' untold mil.
lions- of the rape have gone '
and are still go
ing, down to the tomb and the judgment,
uneheered by a solitary ray from the Sun of
Righteousness, or a single offer of pardon
and salvation. According to this view of ,
the subject, infinite love and wisdom are
thus presented to the intelligent universe as
having purposed and 'provided salvatien, at
infinite cost, for every, individual of the
race, and yet,' after the lapse of nearly six
thousand years not more than a one-third
of the race has ever heard the joyful pews I
As having "found a ransom" for enslaved
millions grinding in the prison house of sin
and , Satan, and yet as not "proclaiming lib-
erty to those captives," or " the 'opening of
the prison.doors to theta° who 'are bound !"
As having furnished :a "Great Supper," a
most magnificent and costly feast, for ,un-,
numbered millions of every age; without
even having sent them an invitation to par
take of it I As having done, by infinite
odds, the greater part of the work of their
salvation by dying to redeem them, and yet
failing to perform the smaller part of in
forming them of the design of his death,
and app7ying, by'his Spirit, the purchased
Redemption. Is , all this credible? and ,yet
these inferences flow manifestly and irresisti
bly from the premises.
But some may `reply, (as some have re
plied,) the heathen are in a safe condition
without the Gospel, and of course the
Saviour did thqn no harm in not informing
them of his great and glorious Redemption;
to which I reply, that if this be true, then
the following corollaries or inferences arein
evitable, viz :
(1st:) It would be unspeakable cruelty to
send them the Gospel at all, or make any,
even the most remote attempt, to evangelize
the heathen P as the Gospel will certainly cc
(lesion, if it,mps not cause, (as in every land
where the Gospel is published) the eternal
perdition of vast irnultitudes of , the race.
The salvation of all the heathen being sure
without the Gospel', illy endanger the sal:
cation of any by sending them the Gospel 7
Every: foreign missionary: should be instant
ly recalled, , every station broken up, and all
the Bibles, religious tracts and publications
burnt to , ashes, if the heathen Are safe with
out the Gospel. Every dollar, of, course,
contributed for Foreign Miseions t lis worse
than wasted.
(2nd.) If the heathen are safe without
the Gospel, our blessed Lord, however be
nevolent his intentions, seems to have made
a most unfortunate mistake when he com
missioned the'disciples to "go into all .the
world and' preaoh the Gospel to every orea
tura," inasmuch as the fulfillment of this
commission can but result in the eternal
damnation of countless millions of the race!
Paul, too, the most illustrious foreign mis
sionary the world ever saw; with a heart
all on fire with love to the Saviour and the
souls of men ; borne upon the wings of the
most glowing benevolence from city to city,
and from , country to country, blowing the
Gospel trumpet with almost seraphic energy
and zeal,,deierves, after all, no higher repu
taller: than that of an amiable, well-mean
ing, but most misguided enthusiast, the ten
dencies and results of whose labors among
the Gentiles were fraught with 'boundless
mischief to the souls of men. The same
may be affirmed of every foreign missionary
from that day to the present.
6. If Jew Christ designed, by his death,
to benefit all men alike, how comes it that
he Saidd`no. x*: 15, «I lay down my life
for the she6p I" I am aware, it has been
said, Christ did not intend,hy thin: remark,.
to express the least linzitation in the design
of his death, else he would have said, ".Y
lay down my life-.'ONLY.` - for the sheep."
But seriously, can any candid, unprejudiced,
intelligent man ,really imagine,
that in using
this' expression, the Saviour did notintend
to express peculiar regard for " the sheep?"
Had he forgotten the obvious distinction:
tween the sheep and,: the goats ? Or are
those terms employed synonymously for des
igniite the same- alass of persona ? "If, in
the very auntie sense, • he, laid, dein his iife
for all manitiod ; inclidiog the ;goats :,with
the aheep, why, say, , " for the sheep," ...in.
Pertieular? What sense would there be in
making a distinction where there no dif
ference? , The disciples might have ,resPond
ed,Ais 1 , 8 DO peculiar: mark of,,loVeto
'since you lay down your life, in the same
sense,:for all , mankind. Besides, thow, on
the
,principle opposed, can, phriat, ;who, : thel
Apostle Bays, "is the Saviour,:of '4ll :wen,"
ITC one l
i mos, bey t e ,Siviari,lnpeiliefft of,'
Ile is the Saviour- of all men; ithere is oh
viously no particularity in the salvation of
belleVers. While, in some sense, then,
Christ May be justly said to have died for ,
the : entire race, it cannot be truly affirmed,
he died to procure thein eternal ‘salvationr
and- yet thierfil :the very peculiarity which,'
marks the 'oreSign of 'his death " for the
siteep,", and for "those that helieve." '
Besides, the sheep for whom Christ
.died . ,
are marked—by—certaii-traits--of-character
Which do not apply •to the whole •world ;
thus Jno. x: 14, "1 know_, mysheep and
ariknown of mine." This knowledgeman
ifestly. includes love-and affection, as may be
deeninveribis , paspages having reference to.
Chia{ and his people '; but such' language
could, npt..be truly uttered, of the, whole
world. Moreover,,-Christ says of his sheep,
:Tno. xxvii iB, " My.sheep ,hear my voice, ,
and I know them, and they follow me; and
I give unto them eternal life; and they shall'
never perish; neither shall any pluck them
out of xriy,bandf, they are, here ,discribed
as those Who shall certainly and infallibly be•
saved. But this certainly'- cannot be truly
affirmed of the whole world. Again, the,
very term" sheep," implies a description of
pernons who truly believe.; this clear from
the:Saviour's remark to those. who rejected
his person and Gospel, inverse , 26, "Ye be
lieve not because ye are not of my sheeP."
Again, ass': 32, 33,'sheep is the'terre i
used to represent believers, who are pined
on the right-hand of the judge, in contraditp •
Unction from the term goats, used to repre ,
sent the wicked who are set upon the left
hand. Now, can any candid, intelligent
mind,really believe that Christ died : for, the
sheep and: the goats precisely; with the same
design,? And that,- too,- when he expressly
declars of the goats that he " never knew
theni ;" as his children, with the
knowledge % of affection. Hi, of _conree,
knee , them well, as his enemies, opposed. to'
his Government and grace.
: Jeans Christ could not have '-
designed, by his, vicariate
.sufferings and
death,.to save 'all, mankind; because he is
said to have died for the Church. Now,
the term Church, in the Bible, , and in com
mon parlance, means generally the opposite
of the world; i. e.; •the Chttrch and the
world .divide the rape, arid, are: nearly . eye-
Maymbris-with"thetrighteoueiark&thestriekeds.
I knew, indeed; the term Church some_ times ,
ipelftdee uiconverted'veritons; but, in all ,
casee, in ; y4hieh'Chriat is sitid, to 'give, him
sellxfor, or die:forthe Church,' it e44aiop
posed:to the -world, for which, with a de
'Sign to save,- he rieithendied nor prayed. ,
But' what saith the Scripture'hereY Christ
is called v: 23;)' the Head of the
°birch," and the Church is called . the
"body" of which he is "the Saviour," verse
23, latter clause. In verse 24, the Church'•
is said to be " subject unto Christ," which
cannot be affirmed of the World ;in
verse 25, Christ is said afao to. have'" loved.:.
the Church and gave hiinself for it;"' and
why " That he might (verses 26 and 27,)
aerially and' cleanse it, with the'*ashing
water. by : the, ;word; That he might; Present
it to- 'himself a glorious . Church, not.-
having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing;
but that it should be holy and without
blemish."' How absurd the idea that Christ
gave himself to accomplish for_ the world
what he is here said to have done for the.
Church ! And if he did, how sadly has he
been disappointed I The term Chula', in:
all these quotations, as well as many others,
must mean that Chirch' which is elsewhere
called "the Spouse of Christ," wedded to
him by the bonds of a living faith,' and by
his death, certainly and eternally saved.
The`death of •Christ, moreover, is the Rook
(Matt. xvi: 18,) on which he "builds` his
%nub, -against, which .the , gates of bell
shall not prevail;" which can be true only
of those who' are 'finally saved. Such; too,
alone can " be the Church of God," Which
he hath ,"purchased with his own bleed,"
Acts k : 23. Again, Christ says, (Jno.
xv : 13,) " Greater love -hath•no man •than
this, that 'a man lay down .his life. for-his•
friends." 'Frielids is the name on
those for whom "Christ died ; and Who, as
Brush, are the objects, of his ;highest love.
Nor can it be reasonably objected There- that
what is tittle said,about his'friends, was said
to his immediate disciples, bectuse . tbe con
text clearly slio*ii that, what was s aid re-,
sPected.their charaoter, not • as ministers but
as Christians, and-of course, is.applicable to
all true believers of every age. Though by
nature " the children of wrath,", as 'weir Is
others, and "enemies to God .by wicked
works," yet, for them, Christ's expiatory
death works out a glorious reconciliation, an
.d one•ment, and , they become his friends:
Of similar import with the word phurch;
are such expriesions as the fellowing, viz.:
" Hie people," (Matt. i : 21,) whom, as the
name Jesus imports, he designed" °trr" save
from their sins"—"a peculiar 'people," (Tit.
14,) " people; (Isar :'B,) , "'Vor
the transgression of my people was he
arieken," "Many," "He bare the sin of
many," verse 12, "My b100d,, , shed for
many," (Matt. xxvi: 28,) " By . the obe
dience of one Shall many be made right
eousr Rom. v : 19. Now ail these, Stipp
twee, and these ,are but a.sample of the
Bible-phraseology on this subject, clearly,
nay ) irresistibly show that Christ did not
die in the same stove for all; nay, they
can never be reconciled with that supposi
tion. •
H.O M.
B.'Once mores Reason and common
sense obviously require that Christ's Re.
demption and intercession should be co.
equal and eo•extensive, if the toimeijs
versa', so must be the latter. But when we
look at what is called, by way of eminence,
our Saviour's'' intercessory prayer, (Jno.
xvii.) it is manifest that he prays, in , this
chapter, Ist. For hiinself; 2._For his im
mediate disciples; Bd. For all future be
lievers. And the world may be challenged
to show, from this chapter, that he suppli
cated spiritual and saving blessings for any
other part of the race. Here then is a stub
born yet important fact. - The world (verse
9,) for which he does not pray, stands , op
posed Ito the Church; between theai the 'race
is divided. ~Now, if. Christ, as this chapter
.unAneationably,provear did net ,pntY;.for, the,
world, can any, map,possibly,imagine that he

died for the world,, in the same tense in
which he died " l'or them which the Father
had given him ?" verse 9. And for whoM
also he specially interceded ! Having died
for the world, as many contend, could he
fail to intercede for' the world ? And that,
too, whenhis intercession is just as neces
sary as , his , . death ? • Having dime ' . by infin

of Christ to do.his work by haloes :Isrhe

is perfectly manifest he . doeS not intercede
for all mankind, else all mankind must be

believe, the first. Presbyterian chureir fur
