Excerpt from Evils of Sectarianism: A Sermon, Preached at Fitchburg, April 9, 1843

The early friends of our Lord were slow to understand the great principles inculcated by their Master, and to imbibe his benevolent spirit. Their opinions of the divine char acter were far less exalted, and in some particulars were in striking contrast with those which our Saviour labored to diffuse. They were educated in the midst of a people, distinguished for their attachment to the institutions of their national religion; a people who, in cherishing a just abhor rence of Paganism, had come to regard with feelings which all true religion condemns, all who did not bow at the same altar with themselves. The temper of mind which had thus become familiar, they retained for a season after becoming personally interested in the character and teachings of our Saviour. They had not yet learned tocontem'plate religion as a system of true holiness, which may appear under differ ent circumstances, and in different connections. But as they had formerly believed that all true goodness was associated with the services in the temple at Jerusalem, so now they evinced a deep interest in the'extension of their Master's in uence; and they appear to have thought that his kingdom was advanced in proportlon, precisely, as the number of their immediate associates Was increased. Thus it does not seem to have been the cause of their Master, the cause of truth and holiness alone, which awakened their zeal;~but while interested in the purposes of his ministry, they blended with that interest feelings unworthy the high service to which they had been 'called.
