“Perjury in religion is worse than perjury in the market; but unhappily for the deist the charge here falls entirely on himself. Christianity never was designed to be a means of getting money, and those who make a craft of it are deists and not christians.” First published in London in 1801, and here published in Boston no doubt to capitalize on the 1807 first publication of Paine’s third part of the Age of Reason in New York. American Imprints 13696. Contemporary ink ownership signature on the front free endpaper and repeated at the head of the title.
