On the Danger of Speculation in Religion. (From "Letters and Papers of the Late Rev. Thomas Scott, Never before Published:" London, 1824, pp. 136–138)
Philosophy, Infidelity, Natural Theology, Biblical Authority
Notes the tendency of questions relating to things 'absolutely beyond the limits of human knowledge' to 'produce first a curious and then a sceptical spirit' causing many to 'speculate themselves into infidelity'. Asserts: 'Mysteries could never have been known if not revealed, and can be understood no further than revealed'.
