the Concernment of the World) if a Man spent his Reputation all at once, and ventur'd it at one Throw: But if he be to continue in the World, and would have the Advantage of Conversation whilft he is in it; let him make use of Truth and Sincerity in all his Words and Actions; for nothing but this will last and hold out to the End. All other Arts will fail, but Truth and Integrity will carry a Man thro', and bear him out to the latt. It's Solomon's Observation, that the Lip of Truth is efta. blished, but a lying Tongue iš but for a Moment.
Every Man will readily grant, that Truth and Sincerity are great Virtues, and Arguments of a generous Miud; but that there is so much of true Wisdom in them, and that they really serve to profit our Interest in this World, seems a great Paradox to the Generality of Men, and yet I doubt not but it is undoubtedly true, and generally found to be so in the Experience of Mankind
Lastly, To what Purpose should one be so cunning when our abode in this world is so short and uncertain? Why should any Man, by dissembling his Judgment or acting contrary to it, incur at once the Displeasure of God, and the Discontent of his own Mind; especially, if we consider, that all our Dissimulation shall one Day be made manifest, and published on the open Theatre of the World, before God, Angels and Men, to our everlasting Shame and Confusion?
Let us then be now what we would be glad to be found in that Day, when all Pretences
shall be examined, and the clofest Hypocrify of Men shall be laid open, and dafh'd out of Countenance; when the Secrets of all Hearts shall be disclosed, and all the hidden Works of Darkness shall be revealed ; and all our Thoughts, Words and Actions, shall be brought to a strict and severe Trial, and be censured by that impartial and infallible Judgment of God, which is according to Truth in the Day when God shall judge the Secrets of Men by: Jesus Christ.
