A12211 A friendly advertisement to the pretended Catholickes of Ireland declaring, for their satisfaction; that both the Kings supremacie, and the faith whereof his Majestie is the defender, are consonant to the doctrine delivered in the holy Scriptures, and writings of the ancient fathers. And consequently, that the lawes and statutes enacted in that behalfe, are dutifully to be observed by all his Majesties subjects within that kingdome. By Christopher Sibthorp, Knight, one of his Maiesties iustices of his court of chiefe place in Ireland. In the end whereof, is added an epistle written to the author, by the Reverend Father in God, Iames Vssher Bishop of Meath: wherein it is further manifested, that the religion anciently professed in Ireland is, for substance, the same with that, which at this day is by publick authoritie established therein. Sibthorp, Christopher, Sir, d. 1632.; Ussher, James, 1581-1656. 1622 (1622) STC 22522; ESTC S102408 494,750 610

the_o protestant_n concern_v justification_n by_o this_o lively_a faith_n and_o not_o by_o any_o dead_a faith_n be_v such_o as_o you_o can_v no_o way_n dislike_v &_o that_o it_o be_v so_o far_o from_o make_v any_o careless_a of_o do_v good_a work_n that_o contrariwise_o it_o urge_v abet_v persuade_v and_o provoke_v man_n unto_o they_o if_o they_o mean_v or_o desire_v to_o have_v such_o a_o faith_n as_o whereby_o they_o may_v be_v save_v but_o now_o although_o the_o protestant_n do_v thus_o right_o teach_v that_o this_o faith_n and_o good_a work_n go_v together_o and_o be_v inseparable_a in_o respect_n of_o the_o person_n so_o that_o he_o that_o have_v this_o faith_n have_v also_o good_a work_n yet_o in_o the_o point_n of_o our_o justification_n in_o god_n sight_n and_o before_o his_o tribunal_n 3.20.28_o they_o be_v to_o be_v distinguish_v and_o to_o be_v consider_v apart_o and_o not_o confusedlie_o because_o it_o be_v faith_n only_o and_o not_o work_n whereby_o we_o apprehend_v and_o apply_v christ_n jesus_n unto_o we_o as_o our_o righteousness_n to_o understand_v this_o the_o better_a you_o must_v ever_o remember_v that_o christ_n jesus_n be_v in_o very_a deed_n our_o righteousness_n for_o so_o the_o scripture_n do_v plentifullie_o teach_v and_o proclaim_v our_o faith_n be_v but_o the_o hand_n or_o instrument_n whereby_o we_o apprehend_v and_o apply_v that_o righteousness_n unto_o we_o and_o our_o good_a work_n be_v the_o fruit_n testimony_n and_o declaration_n both_o to_o ourselves_o and_o other_o man_n of_o that_o faith_n in_o christ_n which_o justify_v we_o before_o god_n and_o therefore_o it_o be_v not_o enough_o for_o a_o man_n to_o say_v he_o have_v faith_n but_o if_o he_o have_v that_o true_a livelie_o and_o justify_v faith_n etc._n which_o he_o

good_a before_o it_o can_v bring_v forth_o good_a fruit_n 44._o by_o all_o which_o it_o be_v very_o manifest_a that_o good_a work_n be_v not_o cause_n but_o fruit_n effect_n and_o consequent_n of_o that_o faith_n which_o justify_v we_o before_o god_n but_o this_o be_v yet_o further_o evident_a because_o s._n paul_n say_v expresselie_o that_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o faith_n 5.1_o and_o so_o have_v peace_n with_o god_n he_o further_o exclude_v work_n very_o direct_o and_o by_o name_n from_o have_v any_o thing_n to_o do_v in_o that_o act_n of_o our_o justification_n therefore_o we_o conclude_v say_v he_o that_o a_o man_n be_v justify_v by_o faith_n 3.28_o without_o the_o work_n of_o the_o law_n 4.6_o and_o again_o he_o say_v that_o god_n impute_v righteousness_n without_o work_n again_o he_o say_v it_o be_v by_o grace_n and_o not_o of_o work_n rom._n 11.6_o 11.6_o and_o again_o he_o say_v it_o be_v not_o of_o work_n rom._n 9.11_o and_o again_o he_o say_v 11._o by_o grace_n be_v you_o save_v through_o faith_n and_o that_o not_o of_o yourselves_o for_o it_o be_v the_o gift_n of_o god_n and_o not_o of_o work_n lest_o any_o man_n shall_v boast_v himself_o 10._o in_o all_o which_o place_n you_o may_v perceive_v that_o how_o requisite_a or_o commendable_a soever_o good_a work_n be_v and_o what_o good_a use_n soever_o they_o have_v yet_o they_o be_v direct_o exclude_v from_o be_v any_o cause_n of_o our_o justification_n and_o salvation_n in_o god_n sight_n and_o censure_n and_o with_o this_o also_o agree_v that_o say_n of_o s._n paul_n in_o his_o epistle_n to_o the_o galatian_n where_o he_o give_v this_o conclusion_n 3.26_o say_v you_o be_v all_o the_o son_n of_o god_n by_o faith_n in_o christ_n jesus_n and_o so_o also_o testify_v s._n john_n say_v 1.12_o

observe_v that_o belief_n or_o faith_n be_v reckon_v as_o the_o hand_n or_o instrument_n whereby_o christ_n be_v apprehend_v or_o receive_v again_o he_o say_v that_o god_n so_o love_v the_o world_n that_o he_o give_v his_o only_a beget_v son_n that_o whosoever_o believe_v in_o he_o 3.16_o shall_v not_o perish_v but_o have_v everlasting_a life_n in_o which_o word_n you_o may_v observe_v again_o the_o first_o and_o original_a cause_n of_o our_o salvation_n to_o be_v the_o mere_a grace_n and_o love_n of_o god_n second_o the_o material_a cause_n to_o be_v christ_n the_o son_n of_o god_n with_o

against_o thou_o pray_v to_o the_o lord_n that_o he_o take_v away_o the_o serpent_n from_o we_o and_o moses_n pray_v for_o the_o people_n and_o the_o lord_n say_v unto_o moses_n make_v thou_o a_o
