The doctrine of the Resurrection  of the Dead & Eternal Judgment  are necssary to preach among the  first principles of the gospel of  Jesus Christ.—
 
The Doctrine of Election
St Paul exhorts us to make our calling  & Election shure. This is that sealing  power spoken of by Paul in other places  (See Eph I.13.14. In whom ye also trusted,  that after ye heard the word of truth; the gospel  of your salvation, in whom also after  that ye believed. ye were sealed with  that Holy Spirit of promise. Which is  the earnest of our inheritance, until the  redemption of the purchased possession  unto the praise of his glory.) That we  may be sealed up unto the day of redem ption, this principle ought, (in its proper  place) to be taught, for God hath not  revealed any thing to Joseph, but what  he will make known unto the  & even the least Saint may know  all things as fast as he is able to.— [p. 17]
