Summary

"But the Christian religion seeks the utter extirpation of the life of self, as being essentially opposed to its spirituality and benevolence, and hence depletes it in every possible way. ... The New Testament dispensation likewise gives DEFINITE EXPRESSION to those functions of our nature which lead to sacrifice and benevolence, in four well-defined and clearly stated laws: 1. The law of FAMILY PROVISION ...; 2. The law of MINISTERIAL SUPPORT ...; 3. The law of GOVERNMENTAL SUPPLY ...; 4. The law of OBSERVATION OF NEED ..."
