Republican Christianity: Or True Liberty, as Exhibited in the Life, Precepts, and Early Disciples of the Great Redeemer (Classic Reprint)
The author of the following work avows his creed in a brief formula, as follows: -
First, he believes in Jesus Christ.
Second, he believes in no one else, as having the slightest authority over the personal freedom and religious rights of mankind.
Christ came into the world to redeem it, by the power of a beneficent life and vicarious death. He was born at the base of the pyramid of society, where the masses are densest, widest, and most oppressed: mingled with every class: endured every wrong: mitigated every form of suffering: sympathized most with the most abused: denounced political and spiritual tyranny in the strongest terms: and, finally, fell a victim, mangled by that malignant pride and power which, in the persons of high priests, crafty scribes, and official Pharisees, ever stand ready to inflame the popular mind with cruel prejudice, leading the multitudes to spare a robber and murder their greatest Benefactor, so that oppression may yet flourish, and their own ungodly immunities remain secure.
In the first part, we have attempted to portray the human, as well as the divine career of Christ.
