Excerpt from An Exposition of the Historical Writings of the New Testament, Vol. 1 of 3: With Reflections Subjoined to Each Section; The Gospel of Matthew
He has ventured upon only one correction of a high er kind. It was formerly the' Opinion of Mr. Kenrick, that the Christian Scriptures describe persons who leave the present world in a condition of unrepented guilt, as doomed to future annihilation agreeably to which idea, he explained those passages in the histor ical books of the New Testament, that speak of the punishment of the wicked in another state. But, dur ing the last years of his life, it was his persuasion, that this sentiment is unsupported by any declarations either of Jesus Christ or of his apostles; and he thought, in common with many excellent and learned men, that even the intensest sufferings of the transgressor will be corrective and remedial, and issue, finally, in universal order, happiness, and virtue. To discuss the arguments in behalf of this tenet, or those against it, is not the province of the editor, who, indeed, does not consider himself as responsible for the truth or falsehood of any of the positions, or for the soundness or fallacy of any of the reasonings, occurring in this work. Yet, in his own judgment, he would have ill discharged his duty to the author, and to the public, had he permitted the following pages to represent Mr. Kenrick as holding a doctrine which his friends and hearers knew that he had discarded.
