constitute_v and_o produce_v the_o be_v of_o it_o and_o therefore_o against_o the_o infirmity_n of_o these_o paul_n in_o his_o epistle_n to_o the_o roman_n galatian_n and_o elsewhere_o stout_o maintain_v this_o doctrine_n that_o a_o man_n be_v not_o justify_v by_o the_o work_n of_o the_o law_n but_o by_o faith_n only_o wherein_o according_a to_o the_o quickness_n and_o shortness_n of_o his_o speech_n he_o intend_v these_o two_o point_n 1._o that_o no_o work_n at_o all_o be_v the_o cause_n procreant_a to_o constitute_v and_o build_v man_n justification_n as_o be_v large_o explicate_v verse_n 16.2_o that_o no_o work_n of_o the_o law_n be_v a_o cause_n conservant_n to_o continue_v and_o maintain_v man_n justification_n as_o shall_v be_v discover_v in_o the_o next_o verity_n for_o in_o these_o two_o point_n the_o judaizer_n hold_v the_o contrary_a as_o it_o plain_o appear_v partly_o by_o their_o practice_n and_o partly_o by_o his_o argument_n against_o they_o but_o james_n in_o his_o assertion_n oppose_v the_o gentilizer_n who_o be_v a_o party_n quite_o contrary_a to_o the_o former_a and_o in_o opposition_n of_o they_o be_v fiduciaries_n and_o libertine_n stand_v only_o for_o faith_n and_o liberty_n neglect_v despise_a and_o disgrace_v all_o manner_n of_o work_n as_o no_o cause_n at_o all_o of_o justification_n neither_o procreant_a to_o constitute_v or_o build_v the_o state_n of_o it_o nor_o conservant_n to_o continue_v and_o maintain_v it_o as_o before_o be_v intimate_v after_o the_o 14._o verse_n and_o therefore_o against_o the_o vanity_n of_o these_o james_n maintain_v this_o doctrine_n that_o a_o man_n be_v justify_v by_o work_n and_o not_o by_o faith_n only_o wherein_o his_o meaning_n be_v as_o it_o be_v well_o enough_o understand_v of_o the_o gentilizer_n that_o good_a work_n ●ot_n of_o the_o law_n but_o of_o grace_n love_n and_o kindness_n be_v necessary_a both_o to_o faith_n and_o justification_n as_o cause_n conservant_n to_o continue_v and_o maintain_v both_o until_o justification_n be_v consummate_v determine_v and_o finish_v into_o salvation_n for_o without_o such_o work_n faith_n be_v dead_a but_o with_o and_o by_o they_o be_v make_v perfect_a allow_v therefore_o unto_o the_o word_n justify_v be_v a_o verb_n efficient_a or_o factive_a these_o two_o sense_n of_o efficiency_n procreant_a and_o conservant_n and_o thereupon_o affirm_v that_o faith_n only_o without_o work_n do_v justify_v procreant_o to_o constitute_v the_o state_n of_o justification_n but_o faith_n with_o work_n and_o by_o work_n do_v justify_v conservant_o to_o continue_v that_o state_n then_o it_o will_v plain_o appear_v concern_v paul_n and_o james_n that_o neither_o of_o their_o doctrine_n be_v a_o paradox_n that_o neither_o be_v to_o other_o repugnant_a but_o each_o with_o the_o other_o be_v consistent_a and_o both_o be_v conducent_a to_o the_o verity_n and_o sanctity_n of_o christianity_n nay_o more_o the_o doctrine_n of_o james_n be_v to_o that_o of_o paul_n a_o necessary_a consequent_a borrow_v from_o paul_n those_o principle_n whereby_o it_o be_v both_o raise_v and_o prove_v for_o because_o as_o paul_n teach_v my_o faith_n only_o without_o work_n do_v procreate_v or_o build_v my_o justification_n and_o because_o evil_a work_n destroy_v the_o state_n of_o it_o and_o build_v again_o my_o state_n of_o sin_n therefore_o it_o must_v needs_o follow_v as_o saint_n james_n teach_v that_o good_a work_n do_v continue_v and_o maintain_v the_o state_n of_o it_o for_o although_o they_o do_v not_o procreate_v or_o build_v that_o state_n yet_o they_o preserve_v and_o uphold_v it_o from_o that_o destruction_n and_o ruin_n which_o evil_a work_n will_v bring_v upon_o it_o again_o because_o as_o paul_n teach_v my_o continuance_n in_o sin_n be_v the_o cause_n corrumpent_fw-la and_o destruent_fw-la to_o decay_n &_o destroy_v my_o justification_n which_o be_v to_o unjustifie_v i_o therefore_o as_o james_n teach_v my_o continuance_n in_o good_a work_n be_v the_o cause_n conservant_n and_o restituent_fw-la to_o preserve_v the_o state_n and_o to_o restore_v the_o decay_n of_o it_o for_o in_o case_n i_o shall_v fall_v my_o faith_n alone_o can_v restore_v i_o but_o if_o i_o recover_v my_o faith_n work_v by_o work_n of_o repentance_n must_v be_v the_o mean_n of_o my_o recovery_n beside_o because_o as_o paul_n teach_v 1._o cor._n 13.2_o though_o i_o have_v all_o faith_n so_o that_o i_o can_v remove_v mountain_n and_o have_v no_o charity_n i_o be_o nothing_o therefore_o as_o james_n teach_v faith_n without_o work_n be_v dead_a because_o the_o act_n of_o charity_n be_v good_a work_n and_o of_o all_o other_o the_o great_a last_o because_o as_o paul_n teach_v gal._n 5.6_o in_o christ_n jesus_n neither_o circumcision_n avail_v any_o thing_n nor_o uncircumcision_n but_o faith_n which_o work_v by_o love_n therefore_o as_o james_n teach_v faith_n work_v with_o work_n be_v by_o work_n make_v perfect_a that_o it_o may_v final_o avail_v in_o jesus_n christ_n thus_o james_n in_o his_o doctrine_n and_o in_o his_o reason_n thereof_o second_v paul_n not_o differ_v from_o he_o in_o sense_n and_o truth_n

he_o can_v labour_v to_o plant_v the_o gospel_n and_o to_o increase_v the_o church_n of_o god_n as_o much_o as_o may_v be_v and_o james_n be_v a_o apostle_n to_o the_o jew_n and_o write_v to_o the_o
