to_o peter_n which_o be_v never_o in_o peter_n his_o suppose_a predecessor_n the_o papist_n perceive_v that_o the_o scripture_n make_v nothing_o for_o they_o but_o against_o they_o because_o they_o

14._o &_o 15._o &_o 16._o for_o no_o man_n mortal_a be_v appoint_v thereunto_o i_o conclude_v therefore_o that_o for_o all_o these_o cause_v the_o church_n of_o rome_n can_v not_o possible_o be_v the_o true_a church_n 7_o the_o church_n of_o rome_n do_v not_o ascribe_v justification_n to_o faith_n in_o christ_n jesus_n only_o but_o say_v that_o man_n work_n be_v meritorious_a and_o to_o they_o partly_o be_v justification_n to_o be_v ascribe_v and_o so_o they_o make_v man_n imperfect_a work_n to_o be_v cause_n of_o salvation_n which_o be_v a_o gross_a error_n even_o in_o the_o foundation_n or_o fundamental_a point_n saint_n paul_n say_v that_o all_o be_v justify_v free_o by_o his_o grace_n rom._n 3.24_o if_o they_o be_v justify_v gratis_o free_o as_o he_o affirm_v then_o be_v they_o justify_v withoot_v any_o desert_n of_o they_o and_o saint_n paul_n set_v down_o the_o axiom_n in_o the_o conclusion_n we_o hold_v that_o a_o man_n be_v justify_v by_o faith_n without_o the_o work_n of_o the_o law_n rom._n 3.28_o and_o the_o apostle_n in_o very_a many_o place_n whereof_o mention_n shall_v he_o make_v hereafter_o do_v express_o exclude_v week_n from_o be_v any_o cause_n of_o our_o justification_n 〈◊〉_d indeed_o they_o be_v the_o effect_n thereof_o and_o therefore_o it_o appear_v to_o be_v a_o true_a position_n that_o faith_n only_o do_v justify_v in_o as_o much_o as_o justification_n be_v in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n impute_v to_o our_o faith_n not_o to_o our_o work_n for_o abraham_n beléeve_v god_n and_o that_o be_v impute_v to_o he_o for_o righteousness_n as_o paul_n speak_v rom._n 4.8_o and_o he_o show_v that_o abraham_n be_v not_o justify_v by_o work_n before_o god_n for_o if_o abraham_n be_v justify_v by_o work_n than_o shall_v he_o have_v wherein_o to_o glory_v but_o not_o before_o god_n and_o because_o he_o have_v not_o wherein_o to_o glory_v before_o god_n therefore_o he_o be_v not_o justify_v in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n i_o grant_v that_o saint_n james_n in_o his_o second_o chapter_n do_v say_v that_o abraham_n be_v justify_v by_o his_o work_n when_o he_o offer_v up_o his_o son_n isaac_n at_o god_n commandment_n and_o likewise_o that_o he_o say_v that_o a_o man_n be_v justify_v by_o work_n and_o not_o by_o faith_n only_o but_o before_o who_o be_v he_o justify_v by_o work_n not_o before_o god_n but_o before_o man_n that_o be_v to_o say_v his_o work_n do_v declare_v unto_o man_n that_o say_v whereby_o he_o be_v justify_v before_o god_n and_o that_o this_o be_v the_o meaning_n of_o saint_n james_n may_v appear_v by_o that_o his_o say_n where_o he_o say_v show_v unto_o i_o thy_o faith_n by_o thy_o work_v thou_o say_v thou_o have_v faith_n that_o be_v not_o enough_o thy_o word_n do_v not_o prove_v it_o thy_o work_n will_v therefore_o say_v he_o show_v i_o thy_o faith_n by_o thy_o work_n this_o word_n show_v i_o do_v manifest_a what_o manner_n of_o justification_n he_o speak_v off_o namely_o that_o he_o speak_v of_o a_o justification_n before_o man_n for_o it_o be_v god_n that_o respect_v the_o faith_n of_o a_o man_n whereby_o only_o he_o be_v justify_v in_o his_o sight_n and_o it_o be_v man_n which_o respect_v the_o work_n whereby_o indeed_o they_o testify_v unto_o the_o world_n their_o faith_n to_o be_v good_a before_o god_n for_o as_o saint_n james_n say_v true_o faith_n without_o work_n be_v but_o a_o dead_a
