IN ITS RELATION TO
THE GRACE OF REDEMPTION
ROBERT B. FAIRBAIRN, D.D., LL.D.
WARDEN OF ST. STEPHEN'S COLLEGE
2 AND 3 BIBLE HOUSE
HE following lectures have been read to classes
in Moral Philosophy. They were intended to show the relation of a system of morality, such as moral science deduces from the nature of man, to the redemption by the Son of God, and to the grace which comes from that redemption. We seem to be somewhat disturbed by the Buddhist and other systems of morality, as if they demanded concessions which were not loyal to Christianity. On the contrary, it is attempted to be shown that this morality is what we should expect from the nature of man. The Church is the minister of grace. Buddhist and all other natural morality requires the ministration of the Church, the light and the grace which the Saviour of the world sends through her, in order that that moral life may be developed, and that it may characterize man in all his daily relations.
