II. JEWS. 1. Their system was Deism, that is, the belief in one only God; but their ideas of him and of his attributes were degrading and injurious. 2. Their ethics were not only imperfect, but often irreconcilable with the sound dictates of reason and morality, as they respect intercourse with those around us; and repulsive and anti-social as respecting other nations. They needed reformation, therefore, in an eminent degree. I was shocked to read it, but to be fair to the author they may have been only refering to Jews at the time of Christ. So I may be taking their anti-semitism out of context, if that makes any difference.
