Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Did the First Church of Salem Originally Have a Confession of Faith Distinct From Their Covenant?

In the next sentence, it intimates, that such treatment of the covenant is unworthy and "perversive of its true character." This seems to have been honestly considered as a needed blister to quicken the perception of truth. But we trust that, on fuller examination, no sufficient morbidness will appear, requiring any such remedy. - We will now endeavor to show that the preceding positions of the volume are correct, and therefore neither errors for misrepresentation, nor unworthiness, nor perversion. To do this, the general divisions, for the most part, adopted by the Sketch, may answer our purpose.

I. The avowed principles of the Founders.

It is an indisputable fact, in moral as well as intellectual philosophy, that principles will be accounted opinions, and so in the reverse comparison, according to the medium of faith through which they are viewed. As in astronomical science, the power of the sun to attract all the less globes of its system was a grand principle with Copernicus, while his opponents denounced it as the vagary of imagination, so it is with the receivers and rejecters of the great doctrines of religion. The Founders of Naumkeag highly estimated their practical principles of Congregationalism. But they looked on them, in contrast with their principles of Christianity, as the shell to the kernel and the husk to the corn. They could easily discern the difference between these two kinds of principles, and quickly distinguish them both from the loose speculations which drift with every wind. As the decision of their judgment, the principles of religion embalmed in their hearts, were drawn from the wisdom of Inspiration. Could they rise from the dead, and address those who greatly applaud them for doing what they never did, for lightly esteeming the doctrines which they held far more valuable than all worldly honor, they would say to them. However earnest you arc, we count such praise as our reproach, and such glory as our shame. They had no need to be taught, that a reformed church could no more dwell in peace, and long exist together in prosperity, without a specification of its doctrines, than a free state or a kingdom could, without the declaration of its constitutional principles.

What, then, were the doctrines or principles of these founders? - They imbibed a love for the truths of the Reformation, stronger than death. Though separating from the corruptions of the English church, they retained, as precious, all its Evangelical articles of faith.
