solved, that we, the Western Union Baptist Association of Ohio,

thy for the President and thank God that the accident is not a

RESOLUTION OPPOSING THE SANCTIFICATION
Be it Resolved, That this Association express its gratitude
and respect for Brother Brookins and its commendation of his
work which he has done here; that we also sympathise with
him in his difficulty, and that this Association teach and endorse
the doctrine of Progressive Sanctification, and disapprove of the
erroneous doctrine of impractibility from sin in this life, and per-
fect holiness until the hour of death.
