A GLANCE at the extent of human depravity, intellectual or sensual, may lead us to apply the proverbial question of Solomon," Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new?" The newest objections and theories of infidelity are rarely any other than reproductions, in more modish dress, of older speculations. Voltaire, and his confederates on the Continent, forged their light missiles out of the heavy materials produced by the English deists, who had by a few years preceded them; and their arguments, as to general suggestion, and often as to specific form, may be traced to the Manichean Faustus, to Julian, or to Celsus. The early replies, also, of Origen and Eusebius were noble models to the best Christian advocates of modern times. In a word, the weapons which are employed to assail the cause of truth and goodness, and the armour by which it is defended, are, in all periods of time, substantially the same. The weeds of unbelief grow in the evil heart of man; they have always a character congenial to their soil; and they can never be eradicated till its nature undergoes a Divine change.
