What effects God designs to produce in the world by the instrumentality of the Gospel. … The first and most obvious effect is to cleanse the sanctuary. The sanctuary of God has been polluted, by rites and ceremonies, the invention of ignorant and designing men. The tendency of these rites has been to make men superstitious, formal, and addicted to will-worship—to furnish a resting place of lies for the consciences of men, and keep them from Christ.

This vast fabric of folly shall be demolished to the ground by the weapons of the gospel, and the judgments of God. There has been introduced into the church, not only human rites and ceremonies, but alse the doctrines and commandments of men; many of which are dangerous to immortal souls, and which have rent and divided the body of Christ. These doctrines and commandments of men will give place to the pure law and gospel of the God of the universe. In a word, all rites and ceremonies, doctrines and commandments of men, with all errors of discipline and practice, will be purged away. ...
