doctrine_n of_o the_o gospel_n yet_o nevertheless_o christ_n do_v not_o neither_o do_v his_o holy_a apostle_n thereupon_o justify_v they_o for_o then_o neither_o he_o nor_o they_o will_v so_o soon_o

neither_o before_o they_o baptize_v they_o nor_o after_o for_o they_o know_v that_o it_o never_o be_v nor_o can_v be_v so_o some_o will_v prove_v false_a in_o heart_n and_o in_o some_o the_o grace_n of_o god_n do_v not_o yet_o appear_v unto_o justification_n therefore_o they_o sensure_v none_o till_o they_o see_v just_a cause_n neither_o do_v they_o justify_v any_o till_o they_o see_v proof_n

without_o twice_o or_o thrice_o admonition_n and_o when_o simon_n magus_n discover_v himself_o to_o be_v in_o the_o gall_n of_o bitterness_n and_o that_o peter_n see_v his_o heart_n be_v not_o right_a

can_v be_v better_o now_o nay_o but_o when_o we_o strive_v to_o make_v it_o better_o we_o make_v it_o worse_o as_o concern_v the_o inward_a estate_n the_o gift_n of_o the_o spirit_n and_o power_n that_o then_o be_v in_o the_o apostle_n and_o faithful_a servant_n of_o christ_n both_o in_o the_o respect_n of_o the_o administration_n of_o the_o word_n grace_n of_o life_n and_o peace_n and_o work_n of_o righteonsnes_n i_o be_o sure_a we_o all_o come_v short_a of_o and_o shall_v we_o think_v to_o outstrip_v they_o in_o the_o outward_a nay_o doubtless_o i_o will_v we_o can_v therein_o but_o compare_v with_o they_o so_o we_o do_v also_o partake_v of_o some_o of_o their_o inward_a grace_n otherwise_o the_o outward_a can_v do_v we_o small_a pleasure_n it_o be_v a_o evident_a sign_n that_o where_o there_o be_v much_o contend_v about_o the_o outward_a form_n external_a wash_n and_o such_o like_a the_o inward_a purification_n of_o the_o heart_n be_v little_a thought_n of_o so_o then_o as_o concern_v the_o outward_a estate_n of_o the_o church_n we_o conclude_v that_o as_o from_o the_o begin_n there_o be_v cain_n a_o believer_n and_o sacrificer_n as_o be_v abel_n though_o abel_n have_v justify_v faith_n and_o not_o cain_n and_o as_o ishmael_n be_v circumcise_v as_o well_o as_o isaac_n though_o ishmael_n may_v not_o inherit_v the_o heavenly_a promise_n as_o well_o as_o isaac_n and_o as_o in_o the_o church_n of_o the_o jew_n from_o time_n to_o time_n all_o that_o acknowledge_v that_o true_a god_n and_o his_o word_n and_o do_v submit_v themselves_o to_o the_o outward_a ordinance_n of_o the_o law_n be_v circumcise_v and_o be_v jews_n outward_o though_o but_o few_o be_v jews_n inward_o and_o circumcise_v in_o heart_n so_o be_v it_o in_o the_o day_n of_o christ_n and_o his_o apostle_n so_o be_v it_o now_o and_o so_o shall_v it_o be_v to_o the_o end_n christ_n himself_o go_v never_o about_o to_o alter_v this_o but_o both_o he_o and_o his_o apostle_n baptize_v those_o that_o do_v
believe_v and_o acknowledge_v he_o and_o submit_v themselves_o to_o be_v inform_v by_o his_o word_n though_o they_o have_v not_o yet_o either_o true_a repentance_n or_o justify_v faith_n for_o they_o know_v that_o such_o a_o belief_n and_o profession_n as_o make_v man_n meet_v for_o outward_a baptism_n may_v be_v where_o justify_v faith_n be_v not_o and_o that_o both_o that_o belief_n profession_n and_o baptism_n do_v but_o make_v a_o christian_n outward_o as_o the_o outward_a profession_n and_o circumcision_n of_o the_o jew_n do_v but_o make_v a_o jew_n outward_o and_o no_o better_a do_v they_o judge_v or_o conclude_v of_o any_o but_o when_o they_o see_v better_a cause_n now_o concern_v the_o baptise_v of_o child_n which_o they_o say_v be_v no_o baptism_n at_o all_o but_o do_v call_v it_o the_o mark_n of_o the_o beast_n we_o affirm_v that_o the_o child_n of_o all_o such_o believer_n as_o may_v themselves_o be_v baptize_v may_v also_o be_v baptize_v and_o that_o it_o be_v not_o nor_o can_v be_v the_o mark_n of_o the_o beast_n speak_v of_o but_o be_v true_a outward_a baptism_n first_o to_o avoid_v many_o of_o their_o vain_a and_o idle_a objection_n and_o that_o we_o may_v come_v the_o more_o clear_a to_o the_o point_n let_v we_o remember_v that_o it_o be_v sufficient_o prove_v already_o that_o all_o have_v sin_v in_o adam_n and_o that_o death_n be_v pass_v on_o all_o for_o that_o all_o have_v sin_v in_o he_o be_v pollute_v from_o their_o very_a conception_n and_o that_o therefore_o there_o be_v a_o necessity_n of_o a_o new_a birth_n from_o above_o of_o water_n and_o of_o the_o spirit_n as_o well_o to_o the_o young_a man_n of_o day_n or_o hour_n as_o to_o the_o elder_a man_n of_o year_n so_o that_o whosoever_o be_v bear_v of_o the_o flesh_n he_o must_v be_v bear_v again_o from_o above_o of_o the_o spirit_n either_o soon_o or_o late_a if_o he_o be_v save_v and_o that_o although_o repentance_n and_o faith_n be_v the_o part_n of_o this_o new_a birth_n and_o that_o repentance_n have_v these_o part_n whereby_o it_o be_v express_v in_o man_n of_o year_n sorrow_n for_o sin_n confession_n of_o sin_n and_o desire_v of_o pardon_n as_o we_o have_v before_o

spirit_n of_o the_o forgiveness_n of_o his_o sin_n and_o reconciliation_n with_o god_n in_o jesus_n christ_n as_o we_o have_v also_o define_v it_o i_o say_v in_o man_n of_o year_n who_o also_o do_v

nevertheless_o the_o true_a nature_n of_o both_o these_o part_n of_o the_o new_a birth_n may_v be_v in_o another_o manner_n define_v and_o still_o remain_v the_o same_o in_o substance_n as_o the_o first_o part_n be_v call_v in_o scripture_n a_o heart_n of_o flesh_n a_o humble_a and_o contrite_a heart_n a_o break_a heart_n and_o saint_n paul_n call_v it_o the_o fleshly_a table_n of_o the_o heart_n in_o which_o regard_n it_o be_v call_v the_o baptism_n of_o water_n and_o the_o birth_n of_o water_n which_o we_o define_v thus_o namely_o that_o it_o be_v a_o special_a effect_n or_o work_n of_o the_o holy_a ghost_n whereby_o the_o heart_n which_o be_v natural_o hard_a and_o stubborn_a even_o from_o the_o birth_n be_v make_v soft_a and_o tender_a as_o water_n or_o as_o flesh_n be_v in_o comparison_n of_o a_o stone_n that_o so_o it_o may_v receive_v the_o impression_n of_o the_o grace_n and_o love_n of_o god_n the_o second_o part_n which_o be_v call_v the_o baptism_n of_o the_o holy_a ghost_n and_o the_o birth_n of_o the_o spirit_n we_o define_v to_o be_v a_o special_a gift_n of_o the_o spirit_n also_o but_o more_o excellent_a which_o write_v and_o seal_v in_o the_o soft_a and_o tender_a heart_n of_o flesh_n grace_n and_o peace_n from_o god_n in_o christ_n and_o fill_v it_o with_o heavenly_a comfort_n and_o joy_n like_v unto_o that_o which_o be_v say_v of_o john_n be_v in_o

which_o in_o they_o be_v no_o other_o in_o nature_n but_o the_o very_a same_o which_o be_v in_o man_n of_o year_n though_o it_o be_v not_o outward_o so_o express_v as_o we_o may_v perceive_v by_o the_o word_n of_o paul_n to_o the_o faithful_a of_o the_o church_n of_o corinth_n forasmuch_o say_v he_o as_o you_o be_v manifest_o declare_v to_o be_v the_o epistle_n of_o christ_n minister_v by_o we_o write_v not_o with_o ink_n but_o with_o the_o spirit_n of_o the_o live_a god_n not_o in_o table_n of_o stone_n but_o in_o the_o fleshly_a table_n of_o the_o heart_n for_o as_o the_o law_n of_o death_n be_v write_v in_o table_n of_o stone_n and_o all_o the_o hard_a and_o stony_a heart_n of_o the_o whole_a posterity_n of_o adam_n not_o only_a might_n but_o also_o do_v and_o do_v receive_v even_o in_o their_o very_a conception_n a_o deep_a impression_n thereof_o so_o on_o the_o contrary_a the_o law_n of_o the_o spirit_n of_o life_n which_o be_v in_o christ_n jesus_n ever_o be_v be_v and_o be_v to_o be_v write_v in_o heart_n of_o flesh_n soft_a and_o tender_a heart_n and_o in_o no_o other_o and_o therefore_o it_o be_v that_o god_n do_v promise_v to_o take_v away_o from_o his_o

such_o to_o revive_v and_o comfort_v they_o and_o no_o other_o and_o to_o speak_v plain_o howsoever_o perhaps_o some_o do_v otherwise_o conceive_v it_o be_v not_o our_o act_n of_o believe_v that_o
