Excerpt from An Essay on Moral Agency: Containing Remarks on a Late Anonymous Publication, Entitled, an Examination of the Late President Edwards's Inquiry on Freedom of Will The doctrines of divine prescience, and of the liberty and freedom of the creature, have been thought, by many, to be involved in so much darkness and uncertainly, especially when considered in their mutual relation to each other, and the aspect which the one necessarily hath upon the other; that it hath been esteemed a mark of modesty, good sense, and ingenuity, frankly to confess our ignorance in points of such depth and mystery, and yield them up as perfectly incapable of being reconciled, even in idea, the one with the other. With this view and apprehension of things are the minds of some so entirely and perfectly possessed, that the very thought of its being in the power of man to reconcile the foreknowledge of God, with the liberty of will in creatures, is strongly repelled; and the knowledge of any attempt to shew the consistency of the one with the other, received with sensible uneasiness and displeasure. And yet these are, both, points of undoubted certainly and truth; and that, by the acknowledgement of most of those in whose apprehensions they so exceedingly mysterious, irreconcilable and incomprehensible. This (if I may be permitted to say it) to me appeareth remarkable. That we should firmly believe doctrines which in our own view are perfectly incapable, by any human understanding, of being reconciled together, is like yielding our assent to both parts of a contradiction.
