call you From false objects of worship, to the worship of the living God. If any one, who reads this address, believes with me, that there is one God only, the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ, I call on him to forsake the temples, where they have set up other objects of worship. To the rest, I fay, with the apostle, examine yourselvesx prove your ownselves, whether you be in the faith? and if your inquiry leads you to this great truth, that the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ is the only true God, I fay to you, with the scriptures,
WORSHIP HIM ALONE.

PROTESTANT TRINITARIANS IN GENERAL,
"We worship the Father, in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him."
John iv. 13.
MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH . - OF ENGLAND,
- I Took the liberty of exhorting you, in a former address, to turn from the sancisul gods, which, through salse notions of scripture, you worship in the place of the one true God, the God and Father of our lord Jesus Christ. I shall now shew you more fully from scripture, that the God and Father of Jesus Christ is the only true object of worship; proving it to you from the express commands of our saviour, his own practice, and that of his apostles.
I need not premise to you, brethren, that the command and practice of our lord and saviour ought to be the guide of your actions. You prosess to believe in Christ; you are therefore bound to obey him. Let us then first examine what he says respecting the object
of our worship.
