no resemblance to those to which they were originally devoted. No man is so famous for this manner of using the Old Testament as Beecher. The whole energies of his mind are devoted to the inculcation of blood and slaughter, and as his doctrine cannot be found in the New Testament, he rejects that portion of the Sacred Writings, virtually, if not directly.
