Excerpt from The Way to the Sabbath of Rest, or the Soul's Progress in the Work of the New-Birth It is true that many from mistaking the principle of God's being the root of all things, have endeavored to rec oncile light and darkness, good and evil, ﬂesh and spirit, Christ and Be lial; and so to laugh all mortification and self-denial out of the church. But, alas! What have the notions and prae tices of such ended in, but shame and confusion of face? They have sowed to the wind, and reaped the whirlwind; grasped at an imaginary heaven and perfection, but like Lucifer, have fall en into hell and palpable darkness; having, like the foolish virgins, spent their oil, and received poison into their lamps, and thus made themselves un fit to meet the Bridegroom.
