The Mutual Obligations to the Exercise of Benevolent Affections: As They Respect the Conduct of All the Human Race to Each Other, Proved, and Applied to the State of the Suffering Africans (Classic Reprint) by Philadelphos Philadelphos (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Mutual Obligations to the Exercise of Benevolent Affections: As They Respect the Conduct of All the Human Race to Each Other, Proved, and Applied to the State of the Suffering Africans The existence of a First Cause is a truth which comes home to the conscience of every individual of the human race: and that man violates the plainest dictates of reasons, conscience, and observation upon every scene of nature which the universe presents to his view, who denies, or even doubts, the existence of a God. Nations or kingdoms totally absorbed in the most sottish idolatry, retained some ideas of a Superior Power, to which they ascribed the formation of the world, and the introduction of mankind, as a species of beings designed for the enjoyment of those comforts which they beheld; and which were offered to them, t with a parsimonious hand, but showered down in the greatest profusion, and with a sufficiency to satisfy completely every rational desire.
