Excerpt from An Apology for Believing in Universal Reconciliation, or an Appeal From the Inferior Court of Bigotry, Superstition, Ignorance and Unbelief, to the Supreme Court of Proper Candor, Sound Reason, Good Understanding, and True Faith: Also, a Key to the Book of Revelation, With Short Notes on the Same

I know that it is said, that God created all things for his own glory, &c. And this idea is corn rect, if it is meant that the things and creatures of his creation shall be so clothed with his nature and sound his praise so as to make a greater dis play of his glory. But it is not easy to understand how God could-appear any more glorious by the creation of man, if the greatest part of them should be so miserable in endless ruin, as to blaspheme their Maker for giving them existence. But the Holy Scriptures are not wholly silent on this sub: ject; for they inform us Rev. IV Thou art Worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou created all things and for'thy pleasure they are-and were created.
