A89160 A confvtation of the new Presbyterian error. Shewing not onely how neere our late Presbyterians come to the Anabaptists, in restrayning the Supper of the Lord from the people, by way of examination, as they doe children from the sacrament of baptisme, by way of confession; but also how they agree with Papists in auricular confession: and that their practise is sacriligious, new, usurped, and tyrannicall. By Alexander Mingzeis, minister of Gods word. Mingzeis, Alexander. 1648 (1648) Wing M2191; Thomason E1181_10 8,429 23

soul_n near_a unto_o christ_n have_v drive_v innumerable_a thousand_o farther_z from_o he_o through_o their_o unadvised_a and_o rash_a proceed_n in_o the_o same_o against_o they_o second_o i_o say_v that_o this_o new_a yoke_n of_o tyrannize_v over_o the_o soul_n and_o conscience_n of_o the_o people_n be_v not_o only_o new_a usurp_a but_o also_o antichristian_a and_o as_o it_o be_v like_a unto_o

to_o teach_v the_o word_n of_o god_n among_o the_o elder_a sort_n of_o people_n and_o how_o they_o ought_v to_o come_v to_o the_o partake_n of_o the_o sacrament_n of_o the_o holy_a communion_n how_o

will_v be_v content_a to_o be_v teach_v but_o in_o case_n he_o prove_v obstinate_a and_o hate_n to_o be_v reform_v than_o he_o may_v note_v such_o a_o one_o and_o not_o give_v he_o the_o communion_n until_o he_o come_v in_o and_o yield_v himself_o to_o wholesome_a instruction_n and_o government_n for_o though_o he_o be_v interest_v as_o before_o yet_o not_o be_v able_a to_o examine_v himself_o
