Some pretences daunt and discourage us, while others raise us to a brisk assurance.More Joseph Glanvill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have a mistaken notion of antiquity, calling that so which in truth is the world's nonage.More Joseph Glanvill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is not anything I know which hath done more mischief to Religion... than the disparaging of Reason, under pretense of respect and favour to it. For hereby the very Foundations of Christian Faith have been undermined, and the World prepared for Atheism. And if Reason must not be beard, the Being of a God, and the Authority of Scripture, can neither be proved nor defended; and so our Faith drops to the Ground like a House that hath no Foundation.More Joseph Glanvill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It may not be impossible, but that our Faculties may be so construed, as always to deceive us in the things we judge most certain and assured.More Joseph Glanvill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And the will therein lieth, which dieth not. Who knoweth the mysteries of the will, with its vigor? For God is but a great will pervading all things by nature of its intentness, Man doth not yield himself to the angels, nor unto death utterly, save only through the weakness of his feeble will.More Joseph Glanvill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
