from another star in glory, so the services rendered by allthis blessed company to their one great cause have beenby no means equal : true it is also, that there have beenpoints in the lives and in the doctrine of all of themwhich have done their great cause injury. There aremany amongst them who have built hay and stubble uponChrist's foundation, or who valued it so highly when ithad been built by others, that they have been very bitterin their feelings and conduct towards those who wished toclear it away. It might be done, indeed, — but it were athankless labour — to look over the list of God's saints, of those, I mean, whose lives and minds are in any wayknown to us, and to notice the blemishes in each ; howsome, according to their several constitutions of mind andcircumstances, have omitted duly to cultivate one virtue,and others have omitted to cultivate another ; how somehave too much neglected some great truth, whilst othershave raised to the level of truth, or even above it, somemonstrous error : how some have been very zealous formuch that was evil, while others have been too cold to-wards much that was good. Above all, it would be pos-sible, but very painful, to mark so often their alienationfrom each other ; how they mistook each other for ene-mies, and shunned each other's society; insomuch that,as in the sad story of the contention between Paul andBarnabas, they parted altogether from one another, andinstead of doing the Lord's work together they each wereobliged to do it alone. All these things might be noticed,and history must notice them. But with all this, thereis another point no less true, which is equally matter of history, and which it is far more profitable to us to con-template, — that with all this diflference, nay, with all thesense of discord which actually may have prevailed, therewas in all, even where they themselves observed it not, asscret harmony : all were Christ's soldiers and Satan'sS04 ALL SAITS.
