2, Of the Sciences in general. in, with continual labour, he hath exerciſed the ſtrength and vigour of his Ingenuity or Invention. But I, perſwa- ded by reaſons of another nature, do verily believe, that there is nothing more pernicious, nothing more de-ſtructive to the well-being of Men, or to the Salvation of our Souls, than the Arts and Sciences themſelves. And therefore quite contrary to what has been hitherto practiſed, my Opinion is. That theſe Arts and Sciences are ſo far from being to be extoll’d with ſuch high applauſes and Panegyricks, that they are rather for the most part to be diſprais’d and vilifi’d: And that in- deed there is none which does not merit juſt cauſe of Reproof, and Cenſure; nor any one which of it ſelf de- ſerves any praiſe or commendation, unleſs what it may borrow from the Ingenuity and Virtue of the firſt proffeſſor. However, I would have you take this Opi-nion of mine in that modeſt Conſtruction, which may imagine, that I neither go about to reprehend thoſe who are of a contrary judgment, or that I intend to arro- gate any thing ſingly ſingular to my ſelf, above others: Therefore I ſhall entreat you to ſuſpend your Cenſure of me, differing in this one thing from all others; ſo long as you find me laying an auſpicious foundation of proof, not upon Vulgar Arguments drawn, from the Superficies and out-ſide of things, but upon the moſt firm reaſons deduc’d from the moſt hidden bow- els of ſecret Knowledge; and this not in the ſharp ſtile of Demoſthenes or Chryſippus, which may not ſo well beſeem a Profeſſor of Chriſtianity, but would ra- ther ſhew me to be a vain purſuer of flattery and oſten- tation, while I endeavour to varniſh my Speech with the Fucus’s of Eloquence. For to ſpeak Properly, not Rhetorically, to intend the truth of the Matter, not the ornament of Language, is the duty of one profeſſing Sacred Literature. For the Seat of Truth is not in the Tongue, but in the Heart.
