Excerpt from Memoirs of the Rev. Ammi Rogers, A. M., A Clergyman of the Episcopal Church: Educated at Yale College in Connecticut, Ordained in Trinity Church in the City of New York, Persecuted in the State of Connecticut on Account of Religion and Politics, for Almost Twenty Years and Finally Falsely Accused and Imprisoned
The great design of all true religion, of all the holy scriptures, and of all good preaching, is to change the natural disposition of the human heart which is deceit fhl above all things and desperately wicked, and to ia duce all mankind to live that sober, righteous and godly life, while in this world, which will terminate in everlas ting happiness ia the world to come.
While I was a member of College, my religious con victions were strong, my impressions were deep, my con version was hopeful and joyous; but my views of the doc trines of religion were varient from the Saybrook confes sion of faith, and the Assembly's Catechism though at that time an opportunity had not occurred for me to ex amine any other system. At length, I obtained permis sion to attend for half a day, divine worship in the Epis copal Church: and, although I vies a' stranger to their church government and worship, yet their doctrine was liberal, and conformable to what I had previously thought. This induced an inquiry into the origin of the religion -ia which I had been educated, and I found that when our forefathers first came to this country, they came from England; that when they came from Eng land they came from the Church of England, and were dissenters from that Church. This induced an enquiry into the cause and ground of their separation - into what they gained, and into what they lost. This brought to view a subject with which I was wholly unacquainted, viz. The. Government of the christian church, the author ity necessary in the regular and due administration of the sacraments, the articles of the christian faith, and the worship of God as practised by churchmen and dis senters. About this time appeared the letters of the Rev. Dr. Bowden to President Stiles, on the subject of a lineal succession of Bishops, by a valid ordination, which were not answered. I also read Potter on Church Govern ment, Cave's Lives of the Fathers, Hooker's Ecclesias trcal Polity, and many other excellent writers on the part of the church. I also read a history of the puritanshoirs.
