A97227 Vnbeleevers no subjects of iustification, nor of mystical vnion to Christ, being the sum of a sermon preached at New Sarum, with a vindication of it from the objections, and calumniations cast upon it by Mr. William Eyre, in his VindiciƦ justificationis. Together with animadversions upon the said book, and a refutation of that anti-sidian, and anti-evangelical errour asserted therein: viz. the justification of infidels, or the justification of a sinner before, and without faith. Wherein also the conditional necessity, and instrumentality of faith unto justification, together with the consistency of it, with the freness of Gods grace, is explained, confirmed, and vindicated from the exceptions of the said Mr. Eyre, his arguments answertd [sic], his authorities examined, and brought in against himself. By T. Warren minister of the Gospel at Houghton in Hampshire. Warren, Thomas, 1616 or 17-1694. 1654 (1654) Wing W980; Thomason E733_10; ESTC R206901 226,180 282

justify_v without_o the_o intervention_n of_o faith_n nay_o the_o scripture_n express_o threaten_v unbeliever_n with_o damnation_n and_o limit_v salvation_n to_o believer_n do_v evident_o declare_v

the_o instrumental_a without_o the_o other_o but_o all_o three_o conjoin_v constitute_v a_o person_n actual_o justify_v in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n and_o whereas_o they_o argue_v that_o those_o scripture_n that_o speak_v of_o justification_n by_o faith_n be_v to_o be_v understand_v in_o foro_fw-la conscientiae_fw-la that_o they_o do_v but_o justify_v we_o declarative_o and_o serve_v to_o

three_o argument_n against_o this_o which_o be_v a_o chief_a cornerstone_n in_o the_o antinomian_o building_n 1._o that_o that_o do_v change_n and_o alter_v the_o state_n of_o a_o sinner_n and_o put_v he_o into_o a_o new_a condition_n in_o refrence_n to_o god_n that_o do_v more_o than_o evidential_o justify_v but_o faith_n do_v thus_o alter_v the_o state_n of_o a_o sinner_n and_o the_o major_n be_v above_o contradiction_n the_o minor_a be_v no_o less_o true_a which_o i_o prove_v thus_o if_o before_o faith_n a_o mna_n be_v in_o the_o state_n of_o damnation_n and_o upon_o believe_v he_o be_v put_v into_o a_o state_n of_o salvation_n and_o that_o before_o god_n than_o faith_n do_v real_o alter_v and_o change_v a_o man_n estate_n before_o god_n but_o before_o faith_n a_o man_n be_v under_o condemnation_n and_o upon_o faith_n deliver_v from_o it_o ergo._n mr._n eyre_n his_o answer_n to_o this_o be_v that_o the_o law_n do_v condemn_v he_o but_o god_n d●d_v not_o to_o which_o i_o reply_v if_o the_o law_n be_v the_o law_n of_o god_n and_o receive_v all_o its_o power_n and_o authority_n from_o god_n then_o when_o the_o law_n condemn_v than_o god_n condemn_v but_o the_o law_n be_v the_o law_n of_o god_n and_o have_v all_o its_o force_n and_o efficacy_n from_o the_o will_n of_o god_n now_o look_v what_o answer_n he_o have_v give_v to_o mr._n woodbridge_n which_o you_o may_v see_v 6._o mr._n eyre_n p._n 112._o num_fw-la 6._o vindiciae_fw-la justifica_fw-la p._n 112._o sect._n 6._o the_o same_o he_o give_v to_o i_o which_o i_o shall_v answer_v in_o its_o proper_a place_n 2._o what_o the_o aposle_n deny_v to_o work_n he_o attribute_n to_o faith_n therefore_o faith_n have_v a_o influence_n into_o justification_n which_o work_n have_v not_o from_o whence_o i_o argue_v if_o faith_n do_v only_o declarative_o justify_v the_o sinner_n than_o faith_n do_v no_o more_o towards_o the_o justification_n of_o a_o sinner_n than_o work_v because_o work_n may_v evidence_n my_o justification_n as_o well_o as_o faith_n but_o according_a to_o the_o apostle_n faith_n contribute_v more_o to_o justification_n then_o work_v ergo._n the_o proof_n of_o the_o consequence_n that_o work_n may_v evidence_n justification_n will_v appear_v from_o 8.1_o from_o rom._n 8.1_o rom._n 8.1_o there_o be_v no_o condemnation_n to_o they_o that_o be_v in_o christ_n jesus_n who_o walk_v not_o after_o the_o flesh_n but_o after_o the_o spirit_n by_o this_o we_o 3.14_o we_o 1_o john_n 3.14_o know_v that_o we_o be_v pass_v from_o death_n to_o life_n because_o we_o love_v the_o brethren_n 3._o beside_o the_o controversy_n between_o the_o apostle_n and_o the_o justiciaries_n of_o his_o time_n be_v not_o whether_o faith_n or_o work_n do_v evidence_n our_o justication_n but_o by_o what_o we_o be_v justify_v in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n from_o whence_o i_o argue_v that_o that_o make_v the_o apostle_n to_o assert_v a_o untruth_n that_o interpretation_n can_v be_v true_a but_o if_o the_o meaning_n of_o the_o
faith_n which_o be_v his_o before_o the_o imputation_n of_o it_o be_v make_v to_o he_o and_o that_o be_v impute_v for_o righteousness_n that_o be_v that_o act_n of_o faith_n relative_o consider_v be_v that_o that_o give_v he_o a_o title_n to_o christ_n righteousness_n and_o so_o that_o that_o be_v due_a to_o christ_n be_v attribute_v to_o the_o act_n and_o hence_o that_o be_v say_v to_o be_v impute_v for_o righteousness_n now_o that_o christ_n without_o faith_n justify_v not_o i_o prove_v by_o these_o follow_v argument_n 1._o if_o christ_n righteousness_n will_v not_o profit_v a_o man_n without_o faith_n the●_n christ_n alone_o separate_v from_o faith_n do_v not_o justify_v but_o christ_n righteousness_n will_v not_o profit_v any_o man_n without_o faith_n therefore_o etc._n etc._n the_o major_n carry_v sufficient_a light_n the_o assumption_n be_v prove_v because_o christ_n say_v to_o the_o jew_n 6._o john_n 8.24_o john_n 6._o if_o you_o believe_v not_o you_o shall_v die_v in_o your_o sin_n and_o you_o will_v not_o come_v unto_o i_o that_o you_o may_v have_v life_n where_o though_o there_o be_v righteousness_n in_o christ_n to_o justify_v he_o say_v if_o they_o believe_v not_o they_o shall_v die_v in_o their_o sin_n and_o he_o that_o believe_v not_o shall_v be_v damn_v there_o be_v life_n in_o christ_n but_o for_o want_v of_o come_v or_o believe_v they_o do_v not_o partake_v of_o it_o i_o be_o not_o ignorant_a what_o mr._n eyre_n will_v answer_v as_o i_o conceive_v to_o this_o that_o christ_n righteousness_n will_v not_o profit_v he_o that_o be_v a_o final_a unbeliever_n and_o that_o faith_n be_v a_o consequent_a condition_n of_o salvation_n but_o not_o a_o antecedent_n mean_v to_o apply_v christ_n righteousness_n to_o this_o i_o answer_v that_o the_o scripture_n speak_v of_o unbeliever_n indefinite_o he_o that_o believe_v not_o shall_v be_v damn_v and_o therefore_o it_o be_v understand_v of_o all_o unbeliever_n so_o long_o as_o they_o abide_v such_o they_o be_v under_o condemnation_n let_v mr._n eyre_n produce_v one_o scripture_n that_o hold_v forth_o a_o unbeliever_n the_o subject_n of_o justification_n or_o one_o instance_n of_o a_o justify_v unbeliever_n and_o if_o final_a unbelief_n will_v hinder_v salvation_n then_o temporal_a unbelief_n may_v hinder_v the_o application_n of_o it_o for_o the_o time_n present_a and_o so_o long_o as_o he_o continue_v a_o unbeliever_n it_o be_v of_o the_o same_o nature_n with_o final_a unbelief_n because_o it_o keep_v the_o soul_n from_o come_v unto_o christ_n for_o life_n to_o the_o second_o exception_n that_o it_o be_v a_o subsequent_a not_o antecedent_n condition_n of_o justification_n i_o answer_v by_o a_o second_o argument_n thus_o 2._o if_o christ_n righteousness_n be_v the_o end_n of_o faith_n and_o be_v obtain_v by_o faith_n than_o it_o be_v antecedent_n unto_o the_o application_n of_o it_o but_o it_o be_v the_o end_n of_o faith_n and_o obtain_v by_o it_o the_o
