90. On this theory of a limited and selective judgment on the wicked rulers and teachers found alive at Christ's Advent, we might also understand the language of prophecy when it tells of good agencies operating still among the sifted nations in Christ’s Kingdom:—so that everything that is more valuable now in the work of righteous statesmen, legislators, scholars, missionaries, civilizers, will be, according to the law of continuity, carried forward into the final blessed state of the renovated world, when human life will answer to the Divine Idea, and God shall have 'destroyed them that destroy the earth.
91. But because, simultaneously with these preparations for war, both in England and in America, all kinds of literary men, princes, and statesmen began to admonish their respective governments to abstain from war, saying that the subject under discussion was not sufficiently important to begin a war for, especially between two related Anglo-Saxon nations, speaking the same language, who ought not to war among themselves, but ought calmly to govern others; or because all kinds of bishops, archdeacons, canons prayed and preached concerning the matter in all the churches; or because neither side considered itself sufficiently prepared,—it happened that there was no war just then.
92. When we see priesthoods making gain, or seeking for power, by deceiving the ignorant peasantry with pretended miracles,—when we see kings and statesmen entering upon unjust wars, and sacrificing thousands of lives to haughty temper, guilty ambition, or lust of power,—when we see professors of false religion and unprincipled rulers conspiring together to torture to death the martyrs of truth, as we read in the pages of history, till heaven itself calls for retribution,—does not conscience judge that if God shall 'take vengeance, on such men hereafter, He will, as Judge of all the earth, do right? But if God will do rightly in judging the great criminals of history, He will also surely do rightly in judging till men according to their works.
93. What is needed to arouse such profligates to reflection,—and still more to alarm those numerous Men of Education whom the divine revelation distinctly threatens with the greater 'judgment,’ but who never associate the idea of perdition with their own destiny,— I refer to the teaching and ruling class,—the unfaithful Ministers of Religion, the Traffickers in souls—and many corrupt Men of Literature and Art, who pervert to meanest or vilest uses heaven's divines gifts—the Statesmen, who defy in legislation and government the plainest laws of morals,—all at present encased like leviathan in impenetrable amour,—to make them 'tremble’ at 'judgment to come,’ and to bring them to repentance,—is the proclamation of a future remediless punishment, which carries its own credentials along with it; and while shaking the souls of sinners, even the most intelligent, as at a fiery 'handwriting on the wall,’ with a deep, convulsive dread, shall leave no valid ground for moral speculations on its injustice and improbability.
94. According to the bearings and variations of those lights, should the statesmen of such a country adjust their policy—always bearing in mind two assurances, as fundamental principles of action, which the nature of things teaches, that, although temporary circumstances—party spirit, local rivalries, personal jealousies, suggestions of subordinate interests—may weaken, or even destroy, for a time, the influence of the leading and permanent interests of any great section of the country, yet those interests must ultimately and necessarily predominate, and swallow up all these local, and temporary, and personal, and subordinate considerations; in other words, the minor interests will soon begin to realize the essential connection which exists between their prosperity and the prosperity of those great interests which, in such sections of the country, nature has made predominant; and that no political connection among free States can be lasting, or ought to be, which systematically oppresses, or systematically refuses to protect, the vital interests of any of the sovereignties which compose it.
