This desideratum once accomplished, “ CHURCH UNION’ follows of course; for, where the Doctrine is universal, the community who adopt it cannot fail to be unanimous. Euclid affords us a proof of the force of doctrine, which can never be refuted, because it is established on the solid basis of REASON alone, totally excluding all sensible phenomena.
