BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GODREV. HENRY KING, M.A. JOHN i. 29. The nest day John seeth Jesus coming unto him and saith. Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world. A S it was in the beginning, so it has continued* to this day, and will continue to the end: UNBELIEF was, and is, and shall be the cause of man's misery, both in this world and in the next. This is the uniform testimony of Holy Scripture ; and it is confirmed to us in many ways, and by various examples. It was un-belief which caused our first parents to sin ; and it is that same unbelief, derived from them to their posterity, which renders every indi-vidual man a transgressor. Unbelief is the thought of the heart opposing the revealed word of God ; even as belief is the thought of the heart consenting to the word of God. As a man thinks, so he is — that is, the thought or

To this the woman answers, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden ; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God bath said. Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. This was the answer of one whose faith was vet unshaken : she first declares thefuH bounty of the Creator,— We may ON JOHN i. 29. 28t eat of the Jrmt of the trets of the garden : then she mentions a single exception, in a manner altogether expressive of her acquiescence ; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hatlh said — this is the foundation of her acquiescence ; it is the word of Grod — God hath saidy Ye sfyall not eat of it, mither shall ye touch ity lest ye die. This answer clearly shews
