McDonald has been reading Richard Watson's Theological Institutes and is confused by Watson's arguments about the doctrine of the Trinity. Watson appears to be talking about three separate Jehovahs, three independent and separate gods. McDonald argues that this goes against the usual understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity as one god in three. McDonald discusses skepticism as different from atheism, and the possibility of morality being separate from religion. The temperance cause continues to flourish. All of his children, grandchildren and sons-in-law have joined the "cold water army." Abstract Number - 1161
