justification_n as_o believe_v in_o he_o as_o priest_n it_o be_v the_o backwardness_n of_o nature_n to_o the_o acceptance_n of_o christ_n government_n and_o doctrine_n that_o be_v a_o special_a reason_n why_o faith_n be_v make_v the_o condition_n of_o that_o pardon_n which_o nature_n be_v not_o so_o backward_o to_o accept_v 12._o the_o reason_n to_o be_v assign_v why_o faith_n in_o christ_n be_v make_v the_o condition_n of_o justification_n be_v 1._o the_o will_n of_o the_o free_a donor_n 2._o the_o fitness_n of_o faith_n to_o that_o office_n as_o be_v suit_v to_o god_n end_n and_o to_o christ_n the_o object_n and_o to_o man_n necessitous_a estate_n not_o only_o because_o it_o be_v the_o receive_v of_o righteousness_n but_o for_o all_o these_o reason_n together_o in_o which_o its_o aptitude_n do_v consist_v and_o its_o aptitude_n to_o the_o honour_n of_o the_o redeemer_n and_o free_a justifier_n be_v the_o principal_a part_n of_o its_o aptitude_n it_o be_v impossible_a that_o god_n shall_v prefer_v man_n as_o his_o ultimate_a and_o before_o himself_o 13._o though_o the_o reason_n why_o faith_n be_v make_v by_o god_n the_o condition_n of_o our_o justification_n must_v partly_o be_v fetch_v from_o the_o nature_n of_o faith_n which_o some_o call_v its_o instrumentallity_n in_o apprehend_v christ_n yet_o the_o reason_n why_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o faith_n must_v be_v fetch_v from_o the_o tenor_n of_o the_o promise_n and_o will_n of_o the_o promiser_n so_o that_o though_o the_o remote_a reason_n be_v that_o aptitude_n of_o faith_n which_o be_v the_o dispositio_fw-la material_a yet_o the_o formal_a near_o reason_n be_v because_o god_n have_v make_v it_o the_o condition_n of_o the_o gift_n which_o shall_v suspend_v the_o efficacy_n till_o perform_v and_o when_o perform_v the_o benefit_n shall_v be_v we_o 14._o as_o faith_n have_v its_o denomination_n from_o some_o one_o or_o few_o act_n which_o yet_o suppose_v many_o as_o concomitant_a and_o consequent_a so_o those_o concomitant_a and_o consequent_a act_n have_v their_o answerable_a place_n and_o interest_n in_o the_o foresay_a conditionality_n as_o to_o our_o part_n in_o christ_n and_o justification_n 15._o and_o therefore_o it_o be_v not_o the_o apostle_n meaning_n to_o set_v faith_n against_o these_o concomitant_a act_n as_o repentance_n hope_v in_o christ_n desire_v of_o christ_n love_v to_o christ_n etc._n etc._n and_o to_o exclude_v these_o under_o the_o notion_n of_o work_n but_o contrary_o to_o suppose_v they_o in_o their_o order_n 16._o the_o burdensome_a work_n of_o the_o moysaicall_a law_n suppoe_v to_o be_v such_o as_o from_o the_o dignity_n and_o perfection_n of_o that_o law_n will_v justify_v man_n by_o procure_a pardon_n of_o sin_n and_o acceptance_n with_o god_n be_v they_o that_o the_o jew_n oppose_v to_o christ_n righteousness_n and_o justification_n by_o faith_n and_o which_o paul_n dispute_v against_o and_o consequent_o against_o any_o work_n or_o act_n or_o habit_n of_o our_o own_o oppose_v to_o christ_n or_o this_o way_n of_o free_a justification_n by_o he_o 17._o the_o not_o lose_v our_o justification_n and_o title_n to_o christ_n and_o life_n have_v more_o for_o its_o condition_n than_o the_o first_o reception_n or_o possession_n have_v and_o so_o have_v the_o final_a justification_n at_o judgement_n if_o man_n live_v after_o their_o first_o believe_v 18._o justification_n at_o judgement_n be_v the_o adjudge_v we_o to_o glory_n have_v the_o same_o condition_n as_o glorification_n itself_o have_v reader_n in_o these_o

will_v show_v you_o somewhat_o of_o the_o face_n of_o the_o doctrine_n which_o the_o dissenter_n common_o do_v propugne_v but_o not_o so_o large_o because_o i_o can_v open_v other_o man_n doctrine_n so_o free_o and_o full_o as_o i_o can_v do_v my_o own_o 1._o they_o agree_v with_o i_o that_o christ_n righteousness_n be_v the_o meritorious_a or_o material_a cause_n of_o our_o justification_n though_o some_o add_v that_o it_o be_v the_o formal_a cause_n i_o suppose_v it_o be_v but_o a_o mistake_a name_n 2._o they_o agree_v that_o christ_n and_o pardon_v and_o life_n be_v give_v we_o by_o the_o gospel-promise_a 3._o they_o yield_v that_o a_o entire_a faith_n in_o christ_n as_o christ_n be_v the_o condition_n of_o our_o right_n to_o his_o entire_a benefit_n 4._o but_o they_o say_v that_o the_o act_n of_o faith_n in_o their_o procurement_n of_o the_o benefit_n have_v as_o divers_a a_o interest_n as_o the_o act_n of_o christ_n which_o faith_n believe_v 5._o and_o they_o say_v that_o it_o be_v some_o one_o act_n or_o two_o or_o some_o of_o they_o that_o be_v the_o sole_a justify_v act_n though_o other_o be_v compresent_v 6._o this_o justify_v act_n some_o call_v the_o

or_o a_o apprehension_n of_o christ_n righteousness_n or_o as_o other_o a_o persuasion_n that_o his_o promise_n be_v true_a or_o a_o assent_n to_o that_o truth_n or_o as_o other_o a_o assurance_n or_o at_o least_o a_o belief_n fide_fw-la divinâ_fw-la that_o we_o be_v justify_v 7._o they_o say_v that_o the_o near_a reason_n of_o our_o justification_n by_o this_o faith_n be_v because_o it_o be_v a_o instrument_n of_o our_o justification_n or_o of_o our_o apprehend_v christ_n righteousness_n and_o so_o that_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o faith_n as_o a_o instrumental_a efficient_a cause_n say_v some_o and_o as_o a_o passive_a receive_v instrument_n say_v other_o 8._o they_o say_v that_o there_o be_v but_o two_o way_n of_o justification_n imaginable_a by_o faith_n or_o by_o work_n all_o that_o

9_o therefore_o say_v they_o see_v that_o paul_n justification_n by_o faith_n be_v but_o by_o the_o act_n before_o mention_v whoever_o look_v to_o be_v justify_v in_o whole_a or_o in_o part_n by_o another_o act_n as_o by_o faith_n in_o christ_n as_o teacher_n as_o king_n by_o desire_v he_o by_o hope_v in_o he_o by_o love_v he_o by_o disclaim_v all_o our_o own_o righteousness_n etc._n etc._n do_v seek_v justification_n by_o work_n which_o paul_n dispute_v against_o and_o so_o set_v against_o the_o only_a true_a justification_n by_o faith_n 10._o yea_o and_o they_o hold_v that_o whoever_o look_v to_o be_v justify_v by_o that_o act_n of_o faith_n which_o themselves_o call_v the_o justify_v act_n under_o any_o other_o notion_n then_o as_o a_o instrument_n do_v fall_v to_o justification_n

in_o specicial_a enough_o to_o persuade_v we_o that_o the_o benefit_n depend_v usual_o as_o much_o or_o more_o on_o some_o other_o act_n as_o on_o that_o which_o accept_v the_o benefit_n itself_o then_o we_o have_v reason_n to_o judge_v that_o our_o justification_n depend_v as_o much_o on_o some_o other_o act_n as_o on_o the_o acceptance_n of_o justification_n but_o the_o antecedent_n be_v true_a as_o i_o prove_v first_o as_o to_o covenant_n condition_n in_o general_n it_o be_v most_o usual_a to_o make_v the_o promise_n consist_v of_o somewhat_o which_o the_o party_n be_v willing_a of_o and_o the_o condition_n to_o consist_v of_o somewhat_o which_o the_o promiser_n will_v have_v but_o the_o receiver_n have_v more_o need_n to_o be_v draw_v to_o and_o therefore_o it_o be_v that_o the_o accept_n of_o the_o benefit_n promise_v be_v seldom_o if_o ever_o express_o make_v the_o condition_n though_o implicit_o it_o be_v part_n because_o it_o be_v suppose_v that_o the_o party_n be_v

of_o his_o pardon_n as_o the_o put_v forth_o his_o hand_n and_o take_v it_o be_v if_o a_o prince_n do_v offer_v himself_o in_o maraiage_n to_o the_o poor_a beggar_n and_o consequent_o offer_v riches_n and_o honour_n with_o himself_o the_o accept_n of_o his_o person_n be_v the_o express_a condition_n more_o than_o the_o accept_n of_o the_o riches_n and_o honour_n and_o the_o latter_a depend_v on_o the_o former_a if_o a_o father_n give_v his_o son_n a_o purse_n of_o gold_n on_o condition_n he_o will_v but_o kneel_v down_o to_o he_o or_o ask_v he_o forgiveness_n of_o some_o fault_n here_o his_o

specie_fw-la it_o be_v most_o certain_a that_o god_n be_v his_o own_o end_n and_o make_v and_o do_v all_o thing_n for_o himself_o and_o therefore_o it_o be_v blasphemy_n to_o say_v that_o the_o
