RATIONAL GODLINESS.

[ocr errors][merged small]

AFTER THE MIND OF CHRIST,

AND THE WRITTEN VOICES OF HIS CHURCH.

BY

ROWLAND WILLIAMS, B.D.

FELLOW AND FORMERLY TUTOR OF KING'S COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE.

AND PROFESSOR OF HEBREW AT LAMPETER.

The Letter killeth: but the Spirit giveth life.--St Paul.
But we have the Mind of Christ.-Id.
The Church is His Body; the fulfilment of Him that filleth all in all
There can neither be true wisdom without religion, nor true religion-without

wisdom; but where wisdom is religious, and religion wise, there is Truth.-

Lactantius.
The Law of the Spirit is what is written with no letters soever. ...The Law of the

Letter is whatever is written with letters.-Luther.

TO THE

MEMORY OF MY FATHER,

ROWLAND WILLIAMS, M. A.

RECTOR OF YSCEIVIOG, AND CANON OF ST ASAPH,

WHO TAUGHT ME (HUMANLY) TO WRITE THESE SERMONS,

AND BY WHOSE DESIRE SOME OF THEM WERE BEING PREACHED,

WHEN BY HIS DEATH THEIR COURSE WAS INTERRUPTED,

I DEDICATE THIS VOLUME,

IN TOKEN OF REVERENTIAL AFFECTION,

WISHING IT WERE WORTHIER OF HIM.

Felix, non vitæ tantum spatio, sed etiam opportunitate mortis.
