PRINCIPLES OF MORALITY,
AND ON THE
PRIVATE AND POLITICAL
RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF MANKIND.
BY JONATHAN DYMOND,
AUTHOR OF “AN ENQUIRY INTO THE ACCORDANCY OF WAR WITH THE PRINCIPLES
OF CHRISTIANITY," &c.
“ As the Will of God is our rule; to enquire what is our duty, or what we are obliged to do, in any instance,
SMALL BUT INCREASING NUMBER,
WHETHER IN THIS COUNTRY OR ELSEWHERE,
MAINTAIN IN PRINCIPLE,
ILLUSTRATE BY THEIR PRACTICE,
THE GREAT DUTY
OF CONFORMING TO THE
LAWS OF CHRISTIAN MORALITY,
WITHOUT REGARD TO
DANGERS OR PRESENT ADVANTAGES,
IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED.
ADVERTISEMENT TO THE FOURTH ÉDITION,
The following Essays ara now published in a cheap form, in order to disseminate more widely right views of the Christian's moral obligation.
The importance of having sound views of our moral, social, and political rights and duties cannot be too highly estimated ; and it is hoped, that the extensive diffusion of a work, so ably exposing the laxity of many dangerous popular notions and practices, and the sophistry by which these are upheld -particularly the evil and impolicy of War—may at this period, under the Divine blessing, prove of great utility.
The present Edition contains the whole of the original one, published in two volumes octavo, at twenty-one shillings; and, for the more easy reference to any particular subject, a copious Index has been added.
