this_o difference_n betwixt_o our_o outward_a sense_n which_o perceive_v the_o outward_a revelation_n and_o those_o divine_a inward_a sense_n supernatural_o form_v in_o we_o that_o our_o outward_a

in_o his_o twenty_o five_o paragraph_n he_o allege_v that_o r._n b._n do_v contradict_v himself_o while_o he_o teach_v that_o the_o outward_a revelation_n of_o the_o scripture_n be_v the_o formal_a
