Samuel Davies & Islam

In stark contrast to many contemporary American conservatives today, Samuel Davies did not single out Islam but said that the gospel:
'shall triumph over heathenism, Mahometism, Judaism, popery, and all those dangerous errors that have infected the Christian church'
Contemporary American 'conservatives' would probably not like to hear these words from Gilbert Tennet(1758) either:
'it is foolish & fatal, not only for individuals, but for nations who are made up of such, to magnify their importance beyond any just foundation...[for] jehovah is able to support his cause and preserve his church' (without the support of the English)
