"Is it not abundantly evident from Scripture, that Christ satisfied the holy law of God, and by virtue of that satisfaction all the mercies that a lost world receives from God must flow? And is it not equally evident, that on the ground of that satisfaction, the gospel is to be preached to every creature? And is it not also abundantly evident from the scriptures, that in the
exhibition of the gospel, sinners are called upon to repent of their sins, and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, as exhibited by our Lord and his apostles? These are the things for which we are complained of. These doctrines we believe and feel ourselves bound to preach."
