Excerpt from The Communicant's Companion: Or Instructions for the Right Receiving of the Lord's Supper
There 18 an important, though often an overlook ed difference between the results of human ingenu ity, as embodied 1n the principles of science, anad the institutions of civil society, and the results of divine wisdom, as embodied in the doctrines of revelation, and the ordinances of the Christian church. Hu man science is the offspring of the observations and experiments of beings limited in their faculties, and liable to error, and admits, from this very circum stance of constant growth, frequent correction and indefinite improvement. The principles of natural philosophy are much better understood at present, not only than they were, but than they could have been an hundred years ago; and it is highly proba ble, that, before the end of another century, they will be still better understood than they are at present but, as the most finished work of the human mind 18 necessarily imperfect, there will always be room for the correction of mistakes, and the supply of de ficiencies.
