Considerations of the existence of God and of the immortality of the soul, with the recompences of the future state for the cure of infidelity, the hectick evil of the times
Bates, William, 1625-1699.

Chap. 7. pag. 105.

The duties of understanding Crea∣tures, to the Maker of all things. Ad∣miration of his glorious Perfections visible, in them. This is more particu∣larly the duty of Man, the World being made eminently for him. The Causes why the Creator is not honour'd in his Works, are Mens ignorance and inob∣servance. Things new rather affect us, Page  [unnumbered] than great. An humble fear is a neces∣sary respect from the Creature, to the Divine Majesty and Power. Love and Obedience in the highest degrees are due from men to God, in the quality of Creator. Trust and Reliance on God is our duty and priviledge.
