A Sermon Delivered Extempore by Sunderland P. Gardner at Friends' Meeting House, Broadway, Richmond, Indiana: First-Day Morning, Ninth Month 28, 1873 (Classic Reprint)
To take the ground of Adam's sin and salvation by the crucifixion of Jesus is to say that God is not perfect: that he was taken by sur prise and so was not omniscient: or if He did understand the whole mat ter before hand, where was his lov ing kindness Would it not have been as easy to have given wisdom and strength to His creature man to overcome temptation, together with the power of choice, as to have brought about the dreadful plan He is said to have found out Would a perfect Omniscience have been forced to send the son of his bosom, the third/ part of Deity, to sufi'er the penalty of man's sins and thus appease Almighty wrath and pre serve almighty dignity This state of things would prove there was a great mistake in first calculations. And this is the doctrine held up by many professed teachers to be be lieved in by all who would be saved. I am concerned to be thus partien lar, from an impression that there are those present who have adopted this faith but have, at the same time, had doubts of its truth, and are dis satisfied with their position. To these I would say, take not old tra ditions on which to build a system of faith, but be prayerful, watchful and obedient to the truths revealed in your own hearts and it will set you free.
