a Parish doth not make Members of a Church 15. Removal from one Parish to another is allowed and why not to a separate Cogregation 16. Tender Consciences ought thus to be relieved 17. It is against Christian charity to deny this liberty 18. This Liberty will prove the best means of Uniformity 19. What if we have liberty from the State to gather Churches 20. Some things may be tolerated that are thought unlawful 21. Multitudes that cannot conform must live without some ordinances all their days 22. Those that separate have given good Testimony of their Godliness and Peaceableness And have used all means first to know the mind of Christ 23. You charge us with Schism to render us odious All these were Independent Arguments in 1644. how they commensed to be Presbyterian in 1672. I know not But this I know that then the Presbyterians were not shy to declare gathering Churches out of our Churches under all flourishes and iittle pretenses was a Schismatical and dangerous Separation and not to be allowed For which they gave the world not onely their Authority but such Reasons as you have heard but shall never see answered Some of their Propositions follow Some of the Presbyterian Assertions whereby they refelled the foresaid Independent pretenses for gathering Churches as more at large appeareth in the Dialogue are these 1. OUr Parochial Congregations are true Churches 2. To make one a Member of such a Church it is sufficient that he professeth Christianity and lives in the Parish and he may claim Communion thereupon 3. The old Non-Conformists did not separate from the Parish Churches or renounce Membership though they thought kneeling at the Communion unlawful and I may add had as much cause to complain of Persecution and want of Reformation as any have now but did some of them with Zeal and Learning defend our Churches against those of the Separation 4. None ought to be indulged but such as agree with the establishment as to the substance of Doctrine and Worship 5. These should not be indulged so far as to separate and gather new Churches 6. This is Schism and the means of confusion in the Church and in Families 7. None are to be allowed to withdraw Communion in things wherein they agree with us But in all such things they ought to retain Communion with the Congregation where they live 8. The Separatists holding our Churches to be true Churches is an Aggravation of their Separation 9. To depart from Churches me acknowledg to be true is not to hold Communion with them as such but rather by departing to declare them not to be such 10. To leave all Ordinary communion in any Church with Dislike when Opposition or Offence offers it self is ●o Separate in the Scripture-Sense and was not in being in the Apostles times unless by false Teachers 11. All who professed Christianity in the Apostles times held Communion together notwithstanding differences in Judgment or corruptions in Practice 12. The Judgment of pure and impure Ordinances is not to be left to the alone discretion of a particular Person 13. To Separate from those Churches Ordinarily and Visibly with whom occasionally you may joyn without Sin seemeth to be a most unjust Separation 14. It is one thing to Remove to a Congregation that is under the same Rule another to a Congregation of a different constitution In the one a man retaineth his Membership in the other he Renounceth it 15. Testimonies of Godliness are no infallible Protections against Schism 16. 'T is no breach of Charity to hinder all unjust Separaions 17. A man may want the Lords Supper with less Danger then to purchase it by a sinful Separation 18. The Church is not bound to Indulge a Liberty to Erring Consciences especially to the evident disturbance of her own Peace 19. No pretences of tenderness of Consciences or of Edification or of enjoying all Ordinances or of holding Communion with us as Saints in the Church Catholick or of Occasional Communion with us as a particular Church or of holding communion with us as far as they ●re able or that they cannot joyn with us without Sin or lastly no acceptions that they take either against our Officers or Members None of these or any such can warrant a Sepaparation from us or gathering new Churches out of ours For these make not the Cause of a just separation which ought to appear ex natura rei Rememmber from whence thou art faln FINIS ERRATA PAge 33.
