Excerpt from An Essay on the Origin, Character, and Tendency of Creeds and Confessions of Faith: As Instruments of Ecclesiastical Power

If any observations in this essay shall be thought severe, I have to say in their justification, that, while with the system under review _i can enter into no compromise, personal invective is very far from my intention. Neither is it my wish to be considered as hostile to any particular sect - much less to the pres byterian churches, with whom all my early associa tions were formed. This essay is concerned with gen eral principles of policy, which belong to all de nominations; and which no chain of reasonings, how ever subtle they may be, nor any series of facts, how ever extended, can possibly warrant. With ministers and Christians of all sects, who love their Master and keep his commandments, [would be ever ready, as God in his providence ofi'ereth Opportunity, to com mune on the broad principles of the gospel; but for sectarian peculiarities, of any form or size, no one, who rejects the creed-system, can have any respect.
