新宝新宝3登录新宝I WAS astonished at the sincerity and temper of this pious Papist,as much as I was oppressed by the power of his reasoning; and itpresently occurred to my thoughts, that if such a temper wasuniversal, we might be all Catholic Christians, whatever Church orparticular profession we joined in; that a spirit of charity wouldsoon work us all up into right principles; and as he thought thatthe like charity would make us all Catholics, so I told him Ibelieved, had all the members of his Church the like moderation,they would soon all be Protestants. And there we left that part;for we never disputed at all. However, I talked to him anotherway, and taking him by the hand, "My friend," says I, "I wish allthe clergy of the Romish Church were blessed with such moderation,and had an equal share of your charity. I am entirely of youropinion; but I must tell you that if you should preach suchdoctrine in Spain or Italy, they would put you into theInquisition." - "It may be so," said he; "I know not what theywould do in Spain or Italy; but I will not say they would be thebetter Christians for that severity; for I am sure there is noheresy in abounding with charity."

Observing this, I asked my clergymanif we should discover to him that we had seen him under the bush ornot; and it was his opinion we should not, but that we should talkto him first, and hear what he would say to us; so we called him inalone, nobody being in the place but ourselves, and I began byasking him some particulars about his parentage and education. Hetold me frankly enough that his father was a clergyman who wouldhave taught him well, but that he, Will Atkins, despised allinstruction and correction; and by his brutish conduct cut thethread of all his fathers comforts and shortened his days, forthat he broke his heart by the most ungrateful, unnatural returnfor the most affectionate treatment a father ever gave.新宝3登录新宝新宝In what he said there seemed so much sincerity of repentance, thatit painfully affected me. I could not but reflect that I, too, hadshortened the life of a good, tender father by my bad conduct andobstinate self-will. I was, indeed, so surprised with what he hadtold me, that I thought, instead of my going about to teach andinstruct him, the man was made a teacher and instructor to me in amost unexpected manner.新宝

新宝I laid all this before the young clergyman, who was greatlyaffected with it, and said to me, "Did I not say, sir, that whenthis man was converted he would preach to us all? I tell you, sir,if this one man be made a true penitent, there will be no need ofme; he will make Christians of all in the island." - But having alittle composed myself, I renewed my discourse with Will Atkins."But, Will," said I, "how comes the sense of this matter to touchyou just now?"新宝新宝
