Excerpt from Christian Phrenology, or the Teaching of the New Testament, Respecting the Animal, Moral, and Intellectual Nature of Man: Three Lectures Delivered in the Thistle Hall, Dundee, on Sunday, January 25th, February 1st and 8th, 1835; Lect. I, Animal Propensities; Lect. II, Moral Sentiments; Lect. III, Intellectual Faculties
Man is what it has pleased his God-to make him. That Maker is too wise to err and too good to be unkind. He has constituted man for trial and improvement. Has he done wrong To subject man to trial and render him susceptible of improvement, he planted within the human mind three sets of powers, or, as it were, three natures,-the animal, the. Moral, and the intellectual; and hence the moral war fare, that man has to wage, and hence the moral victory that he may gain. Was this a mixture of cruelty and error P Man's improvement or degradation depends upon the right use or the misdirection of the powers possessed and the means enjoyed. Is not this just and right? Christianity is professedly means of heavenly grace for acting through and upon the three sets of natural human powers to pre vent vice and promote virtue - for enlightening, purifying, and exalting man in this life, and preparing him for endless felicity. 'is this irrational - Assuredly not. Man, Nature, Christianity, and all the dispensations of Deity, are graciously fitted to each other.
