Byfield Scriba Rules and Directions CONCERNING Suspension from the SACRAMENT OF THE LORDS SVPPER in case of Ignorance 1. ALl such persons who shall be admitted to the Sacrament of the Lords Supper ought to know that there is a God that there is but one ever-living and true God maker of Heaven and Earth and Governour of all things That this onely true God is the God whom we worship that this God is but one yet three distinct Persons the Father Son and Holy Ghost all equally God 2. That God created man after his own Image in knowledge righteousness and true holiness That by one man sin entred into the World and death by sin and so death passed upon all men for that all have sinned That thereby they are all dead in trespasses and sins and are by nature the children of wrath and so lyable to eternal death the wages of every sin 3. That there is but one Mediator between God and Man the Man Christ Jesus who is also over all God blessed for ever neither is there salvation in any other That he was conceived by the holy Ghost and Born of the Virgin Mary That he dyed upon the Cross to save his people from their Sins That he rose again the third day from the dead ascended into Heaven sits at the right hand of God and makes continual intercession for us of whose fulness we receive all grace necessary to salvation 4. That Christ and his benefits are applyed onely by faith That faith is the gift of God and that we have it not of our selves but it is wrought in us by the Word and Spirit of God That faith is that grace whereby we believe and trust in Christ for remission of sins and life everlasting according to the promise of the Gospel that whosoever believes not on the Son of God shall not see life but shall perish eternally That they who truly repent of their sins do see them sorrow for them and turn from them to the Lord and that except men repent they shall surely perish That a godly life is conscionably ordered according to the word of God in Holiness and Righteousness without which no man shall see God That the Sacraments are Seals of the Covenant of Grace in the blood of Christ That the Sacraments of the new Testament are Baptism and the Lords Supper that the outvvard Elements in the Lords Supper are Bread and Wine and do signifie the Body and Blood of Christ Crucified vvhich the vvorthy Receiver by Faith doth partake of in this Sacrament which Christ hath likewise Ordained for a remembrance of his death that whosoever eats and drinks unworthily is guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord and therefore that every one is to examine himself lest he eat and drink Judgement to himself not discerning the Lords Body That the Souls of the faithful after death do immediatly live with Christ in Blessedness and that the Souls of the wicked do immediatly go into Hell torments That there shall be a Resurrection of the Bodies both of the just and unjust at the last Day at which time all shall appear before the Judgement Seat of Christ to receive according to what they have done in the Body whether it be good or evil And that the righteous shall go into life eternal and the wicked into everlasting punishment And it is further Ordained by the Lords and Commons That those who have a competent measure of understanding concerning the matters contained in these Articles shall not be kept back from the Sacrament of the Lords Supper for Ignorance And that the Examination and Judgement of such Persons as shall for their ignorance of the aforesaid points of Religion not to be admitted to the Sacrament of the Lords Supper is to be in the power of the Eldership of every Congregation 15.
