In districts on the Yangtze, however, it is not so; there, some of the other lodges are fully occupied and organized; the Ko-lao-hui element seems the stronger there, while in the Chengtu. Verse 2. Galatians If ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. The law and grace. I. God will deal with us either altogether by works or altogether by Christ; these things cannot be mixed. II. To piece up therefore the righteousness of Christ by our own works, and to add anything to the passion as a meritorious cause of our justification, is to make Christ unprofitable.

And by the same reasoning it will follow, that if, as Dr. Taylor says, Adam must choose to be righteous, before he was righteous, and if it be essential to the nature of righteousness, or moral rectitude, that it be the effect of choice, and hence a principle of benevolence cannot have moral rectitude, unless it proceeds from choice; then not.

Benevolence is an act of kindness or an inclination to be kind. It’s the quality of someone who volunteers in a soup kitchen, tutors children for free, and helps old ladies cross the street.

LOVE, magnanimity, affection for others, sympathy and pity, were ever recognized to be supreme virtues, the highest of all the attributes of the human. A man of the highest rectitude acts, but from ulterior motive.

They have too often felt, as if he were raised, by his greatness and sovereignty, above the principles of morality, above those eternal laws of equity and rectitude, to which all other beings are subjected.

Personal virtues are characteristics valued as promoting collective and individual greatness. In other words, it is a behavior that shows high moral standards.
