CHAPTER I.

Of Religion and the Holy Scriptures.

SECTION 1.

RELIGION is the Worship and Service of the Deity.

§ 2. Natural Religion is the Worship and Service of God, according to the light of Nature, or the exercise of Reason. Revealed Religion is the Worship and Service of God, according to the declaration of His Will.

$ 3. Man is enabled by the light of Nature, to apprehend the Existence and certain of the Attributes of the Deity; but it is only by the help of Revelation, that he can come to the full and salutary knowledge of the divine perfections, and of his own interest in their operation; of the mutual relation which subsists between the Creator and the creature ; and of that rule of life, by obedience to which he is to shew his gratitude and submission to God, and to seek his happiness in this world, as well as his salvation in a future state.

§ 4. The Will of God, as it has been revealed at various times, and by different means, since the Creation of the World, is contained in those books, whic together form (what is commonly called) the Bible or Holy Scriptures. From this written Word, which derives its authority, not from man's judgment, but from the testimony of the Holy Spirit, and which God has been graciously pleased to record by the inspired pen of Patriarchs, Prophets, and Apostles, for the establishment and preservation of His Church, we obtain a perfect and sufficient Rule of Faith and Practice ;-the knowledge of every thing which is necessary to make us wise unto salvation. The Canon of Scripture being completed, we are not to expect any further such extraordinary Revelations, as were given before and during the delivery of the written Word.

$ 5. The Canonical Books of the Bible (divided into the Old Testament, or the Law and the Prophets; and the New Testament, or the Gospel) are those, of the authority and inspiration of which there is no doubt.

$ 6. The Old Testament, written originally in the Hebrew language, and containing the Mosaic and Pro. phetical Revelations, consists of the following thirtynine books:
