“I went to the Word, reading the New Testament from the beginning, with a particular reference to [the] truths [of the doctrine of election]. To my great astonishment I found that the passages which speak decidedly for election and persevering grace, were about four times as many as those which speak apparently against these truths; and even those few, shortly after, when I had examined and understood them, served to confirm me in the above doctrines.
