unconcernedness_n as_o the_o rock_n break_v the_o wave_n that_o dash_v against_o it_o but_o that_o you_o may_v see_v that_o there_o be_v hot-brained_a man_n of_o all_o party_n some_o of_o their_o own_o robe_n will_v needs_o suspect_v they_o to_o be_v shrewd_o incline_v to_o nonconformity_n because_o they_o be_v not_o always_o rail_v at_o the_o fanatic_n other_o hold_v they_o to_o be_v soeinians_n present_o because_o they_o be_v able_a to_o confute_v they_o without_o run_v into_o a_o unseemly_a passion_n other_o look_v upon_o they_o as_o well_o affect_v to_o the_o church_n of_o rome_n because_o though_o possible_o they_o believe_v it_o yet_o they_o do_v not_o make_v it_o a_o fundamental_a article_n that_o the_o pope_n be_v antichrist_n other_o imagine_v they_o can_v prove_v they_o heathen_n because_o they_o be_v not_o continual_o pass_v sentence_n upon_o the_o soul_n of_o socrates_n and_o cato_n and_o thus_o if_o you_o examine_v they_o all_o through_o you_o will_v find_v that_o it_o be_v nothing_o but_o their_o sober_a and_o modest_a behaviour_n in_o dispute_n and_o the_o greatness_n of_o their_o charity_n that_o can_v be_v charge_v with_o heresy_n or_o any_o disaffection_n to_o the_o church_n of_o england_n for_o their_o opinion_n can_v be_v accuse_v of_o this_o they_o be_v perfect_o agreeable_a to_o the_o nine_o and_o thirty_o article_n as_o i_o tell_v you_o before_o though_o not_o to_o the_o false_a and_o spurious_a gloss_n that_o some_o have_v be_v please_v to_o put_v upon_o they_o i_o will_v just_o mention_v some_o few_o thing_n they_o hold_v which_o may_v be_v sufficient_a to_o clear_v they_o of_o the_o gross_a of_o those_o imputation_n they_o have_v suffer_v under_o they_o hold_v the_o doctrine_n of_o the_o holy_a trinity_n that_o the_o father_n be_v god_n the_o son_n god_n and_o the_o holy_a ghost_n god_n they_o hold_v that_o the_o eternal_a and_o only_o beget_v son_n of_o god_n be_v in_o the_o fullness_n of_o time_n incarnate_a of_o the_o bless_a virgin_n and_o that_o he_o suffer_v death_n upon_o the_o cross_n for_o our_o redemption_n and_o make_v there_o by_o his_o own_o oblation_n of_o himself_o once_o offer_v a_o full_a perfect_a sufficient_a sacrifice_n oblation_n and_o satisfaction_n for_o the_o sin_n of_o the_o whole_a world_n they_o hold_v that_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o faith_n but_o not_o that_o this_o faith_n exclude_v the_o other_o condition_n of_o salvation_n that_o be_v indispensable_o require_v in_o the_o gospel_n i_o may_v allege_v other_o instance_n but_o these_o be_v enough_o to_o take_v away_o the_o scandal_n of_o socinianism_n at_o least_o and_o thus_o have_v i_o give_v you_o my_o opinion_n free_o what_o i_o conceive_v to_o be_v the_o cause_n of_o the_o great_a apprehension_n that_o some_o have_v entertain_v as_o if_o the_o conform_v clergy_n be_v turn_v heretic_n and_o i_o can_v find_v they_o to_o be_v no_o other_o than_o that_o there_o be_v need_n enough_o of_o some_o new_a pretence_n for_o separation_n and_o that_o many_o of_o the_o conformist_n be_v of_o more_o mild_a and_o peaceable_a disposition_n and_o treat_v their_o adversary_n with_o more_o civility_n and_o respect_n than_o other_o do_v as_o you_o know_v they_o that_o have_v a_o good_a cause_n and_o be_v able_a to_o defend_v it_o be_v not_o trouble_v but_o rather_o please_v to_o have_v their_o opinion_n inquire_v into_o but_o those_o that_o be_v conscious_a of_o their_o own_o weakness_n or_o distrust_v the_o truth_n of_o what_o they_o maintain_v can_v endure_v to_o have_v it_o question_v and_o be_v extreme_o impatient_a of_o any_o contradiction_n but_o it_o be_v time_n to_o return_v to_o mr._n jenkyn_n and_o to_o make_v a_o reply_n to_o some_o of_o those_o reproachful_a word_n which_o he_o use_v against_o we_o i_o shall_v confine_v myself_o chief_o to_o that_o part_n of_o the_o sermon_n where_o he_o show_v the_o insufficiency_n of_o 3._o his_o dwarfish_a endeavour_n to_o reach_v the_o height_n of_o dr._n seaman_n be_v worth_a where_o i_o shall_v not_o in_o the_o least_o detract_v from_o the_o doctor_n for_o i_o observe_v that_o mr._n jenkyn_n himself_o however_o he_o like_v they_o whilst_o they_o be_v live_v seem_v to_o have_v a_o special_a kindness_n for_o dead_a bishop_n as_o appear_v by_o divers_a instance_n in_o this_o sermon_n and_o some_o other_o and_o i_o shall_v not_o be_v more_o uncivil_a to_o his_o depart_a friend_n than_o he_o be_v to_o we_o i_o have_v think_v have_v it_o be_v possible_a to_o have_v put_v his_o extravagance_n into_o some_o order_n and_o to_o have_v digest_v my_o answer_n into_o the_o same_o method_n but_o because_o i_o find_v that_o very_o difficult_a i_o shall_v content_v myself_o to_o take_v they_o general_o as_o they_o lie_v only_o whereas_o he_o usual_o mingle_v his_o invective_n and_o his_o panegyric_n together_o i_o shall_v take_v the_o boldness_n to_o part_v they_o and_o first_o consider_v some_o of_o the_o thing_n for_o which_o he_o commend_v the_o doctor_n and_o then_o take_v notice_n of_o those_o matter_n for_o which_o he_o do_v inveigh_v at_o we_o and_o he_o praise_v the_o doctor_n for_o his_o excellency_n in_o the_o theological_a school_n in_o his_o pastoral_a employment_n and_o in_o his_o christian_a capacity_n and_o i_o shall_v not_o question_v any_o thing_n of_o all_o this_o let_v he_o be_v a_o most_o acute_a disputant_n a_o profound_a casuist_n a_o skilful_a interpreter_n a_o orthodox_n divine_a a_o able_a preacher_n and_o which_o be_v more_o than_o all_o a_o good_a christian_n i_o be_o as_o glad_a to_o hear_v it_o as_o any_o man_n be_v and_o i_o can_v wish_v for_o the_o doctor_n be_v sake_n that_o mr._n jenkyn_n have_v deserve_v so_o much_o credit_n that_o we_o may_v believe_v it_o all_o upon_o his_o authority_n but_o yet_o i_o be_o resolve_v to_o hope_v the_o best_a but_o towards_o the_o very_a beginning_n of_o this_o large_a encomium_n he_o bring_v in_o a_o kind_n of_o a_o unlucky_a apology_n for_o ill-nature_n now_o if_o the_o doctor_n have_v any_o such_o defect_n in_o his_o temper_n as_o he_o seem_v to_o suppose_v yet_o i_o hope_v it_o be_v correct_v in_o good_a measure_n and_o mr._n jenkyn_n may_v have_v spare_v he_o there_o but_o i_o believe_v he_o intend_v to_o speak_v one_o good_a word_n for_o the_o doctor_n and_o two_o for_o himself_o for_o he_o have_v as_o little_a reason_n as_o any_o man_n i_o know_v to_o be_v much_o in_o love_n with_o natural_a sweetness_n but_o let_v that_o pass_v there_o be_v something_o else_o more_o material_a that_o must_v be_v consider_v and_o he_o tell_v we_o that_o when_o the_o doctor_n keep_v his_o divinity_n act_n the_o design_n of_o his_o position_n which_o therein_o he_o maintain_v be_v to_o assert_v the_o providence_n of_o 52._o god_n in_o dispose_v of_o political_a government_n a_o thing_n which_o no_o sober_a man_n ever_o deny_v and_o yet_o he_o say_v that_o it_o be_v a_o point_n till_o that_o time_n little_o study_v that_o be_v strange_a do_v he_o never_o hear_v of_o the_o disputation_n the_o platonist_n and_o stoic_n and_o epicurean_o have_v concern_v this_o and_o some_o of_o these_o it_o be_v think_v be_v a_o little_a before_o the_o doctor_n be_v time_n but_o it_o be_v not_o so_o well_o understand_v 53._o till_o the_o doctor_n make_v this_o most_o happy_a discovery_n though_o since_o that_o time_n several_a have_v receive_v light_n therein_o from_o this_o burn_a and_o shine_a light_n it_o be_v very_o well_o if_o they_o have_v and_o i_o believe_v he_o can_v tell_v we_o too_o if_o he_o please_v who_o they_o be_v that_o have_v be_v thus_o illuminate_v and_o among_o the_o rest_n no_o doubt_n he_o himself_o have_v have_v a_o very_a signal_n advantage_n by_o it_o and_o have_v the_o most_o reason_n of_o any_o man_n live_v always_o to_o admire_v and_o magnify_v the_o doctor_n be_v opinion_n it_o be_v a_o most_o excellent_a prefervative_n against_o tower-hill_n but_o what_o be_v this_o fame_a position_n of_o the_o doctor_n be_v as_o far_o as_o i_o can_v learn_v it_o be_v lay_v down_o in_o these_o very_a word_n or_o to_o this_o purpose_n regimen_fw-la politicum_fw-la fundatur_fw-la
