Excerpt from Fourth Letter to the Rev. William Palmer, M.A., Of Worcester College, Oxford: On the Way to Find the True Church of Christ on Earth, on Satisfaction, on Indulgences, on the Supremacy of the See of Rome, Infallibility, Eucharist, Etc;, Etc

Rev. Sir,

Every Man, come to the perfect Use of Reason, is bound to be of some Religion to serve God in, according to the Condition or Station allotted to him by the Divine Providence; and it is a concern of the highest importance not to be mistaken in the Choice of it; for nothing less than a Man's eternal Welfare depends upon it, and all is lost if he makes a false step in it. Indifference must therefore be laid aside; for he who is indifferent whether he saves his soul or not, will most certainly perish. Neither must he consult Interest, or Ease, or Education; for if he does, he will be in the utmost danger of making a wrong choice; Interest and Ease will press hard upon him to embrace that Religion which favors them most, whether it be the true one or not; and Education, if it be allowed to determine a Man in the Choice of his religion, will fix him as immoveably in Judaism, Mahometanism, Socinianism, or Quakerism, as in the true Church of Christ. No man, therefore, ought to consider whether the Church whereof he is a member, be the Church of the Country where he is born; whether it be most favorable to his Interest, Liberty, and Ease; or, finally, whether it be the Church in which he is most likely to make his fortune; but his whole Examination ought to be of this one single point, viz. - whether it be the true Church of Christ, in which alone salvation can be attained.
