Biblical, Islamic, and Religious Studies

Many different sects now exist in the world, equally preposterous in their nature, equally claiming to have derived their origin from heaven, and equally vindictive in anathematizing each other. As all can not be true, and some must be forgeries, it demonstrates the fact, that a religious system may be forged and palmed upon a whole nation, and that the people may venerate a system of impious fraud, may lavish their wealth and blood in the support and defense of an imposition of priestcraft, and may believe in miracles, prophecies, and doctrines which have been imposed upon them by designing and ambitious priests.
