A16691 The rasing of the foundations of Brovvnisme Wherein, against all the writings of the principall masters of that sect, those chiefe conclusions in the next page, are, (amongst sundry other matters, worthie the readers knowledge) purposely handled, and soundely prooued. Also their contrarie arguments and obiections deliberately examined, and clearly refelled by the word of God. Bredwell, Stephen. 1588 (1588) STC 3599; ESTC S106388 120,820 166

if_o you_o doubt_v i_o will_v be_v ready_a to_o show_v you_o prove_v 31_o in_o my_o first_o answer_n i_o show_v you_o the_o right_a understanding_n of_o that_o comparison_n of_o the_o leaven_n which_o

give_v you_o to_o understande_v that_o the_o comparison_n be_v there_o of_o quality_n not_o of_o quantity_n i_o speak_v not_o of_o like_a force_n and_o like_a nature_n without_o regard_n of_o like_o work_v i_o know_v we_o consider_v of_o the_o nature_n of_o thing_n by_o their_o effect_n and_o therefore_o i_o say_v also_o that_o paul_n put_v we_o in_o mind_n of_o the_o effect_n of_o leaven_n the_o leaven_n in_o sour_v the_o meal_n wherewith_o it_o be_v mingle_v and_o the_o ungodly_a in_o corrupt_v those_o with_o who_o they_o keep_v company_n have_v herein_o both_o a_o like_a nature_n yea_o and_o their_o effect_n when_o they_o do_v come_v to_o pass_v be_v both_o alike_o for_o it_o be_v true_a that_o when_o the_o wicked_a draw_v other_o after_o they_o to_o become_v also_o of_o evil_a conversation_n that_o before_o be_v not_o so_o the_o effect_n be_v like_a to_o the_o sour_v of_o the_o meal_n which_o before_o be_v not_o so_o but_o now_o the_o measure_n of_o work_v of_o the_o one_o and_o of_o the_o other_o be_v not_o the_o same_o in_o both_o subject_n which_o that_o i_o may_v help_v you_o the_o better_a to_o understand_v consider_v that_o the_o matter_n subject_n to_o the_o sour_v of_o the_o leaven_n be_v meal_n a_o thing_n altogether_o and_o whole_o dispose_v to_o receive_v the_o impression_n thereof_o without_o resistance_n but_o the_o matter_n whereon_o the_o wicked_a

not_o equal_a for_o of_o the_o meal_n all_o be_v infect_v but_o not_o all_o of_o such_o a_o company_n and_o so_o be_v it_o in_o the_o comparison_n that_o i_o give_v you_o by_o the_o salt_n all_o the_o liquor_n be_v season_v but_o so_o be_v not_o always_o a_o wicked_a company_n by_o two_o or_o three_o righteous_a man_n convert_v again_o the_o leaven_n in_o one_o night_n so_o wretch_n the_o meal_n wherewith_o it_o be_v mingle_v you_o dare_v not_o say_v that_o the_o case_n be_v the_o same_o with_o a_o whole_a congregation_n and_o yet_o you_o say_v more_o if_o you_o hold_v that_o by_o warrant_n of_o this_o scripture_n you_o must_v depart_v from_o the_o sacrament_n where_o you_o see_v unworthy_a one_o admit_v for_o so_o you_o account_v the_o whole_a congregation_n to_o be_v leaven_a that_o be_v unsanctified_a in_o a_o moment_n but_o i_o must_v further_o remember_v you_o that_o as_o in_o diverse_a place_n the_o scripture_n speak_v of_o leaven_n in_o the_o ill_a part_n so_o our_o saviour_n christ_n propound_v a_o similitude_n by_o the_o same_o in_o the_o good_a part_n 13.33_o which_o if_o you_o apply_v and_o urge_v as_o far_o forth_o as_o you_o have_v do_v this_o you_o must_v say_v that_o where_o faith_n &_o regeneration_n by_o the_o gospel_n be_v once_o begin_v there_o do_v all_o become_v faithful_a &_o renew_a even_o as_o of_o 3._o peck_v of_o meal_n all_o become_v leven_v which_o if_o you_o do_v say_v all_o the_o world_n will_v cry_v shame_n of_o you_o if_o you_o fear_v so_o to_o abuse_v this_o place_n why_o fear_v you_o not_o also_o in_o the_o other_o moreover_o whereas_o your_o leader_n teach_v you_o to_o apply_v these_o word_n of_o saint_n paul_n a_o little_a leaven_n leaven_v the_o whole_a lump_n as_o though_o the_o apostle_n have_v give_v you_o to_o understande_v thereby_o that_o one_o know_v and_o so_o prove_v a_o wicked_a man_n remain_v unseparate_v in_o a_o church_n unsanctifi_v the_o whole_a and_o bring_v a_o nullity_n upon_o it_o he_o do_v too_o gross_o and_o shameful_o abuse_v miscarry_n and_o seduce_v you_o for_o by_o leaven_n paul_n mean_v corrupt_v they_o with_o evil_a manner_n ●_o like_o as_o to_o the_o galathian_o he_o mean_v by_o the_o same_o speech_n the_o corrupt_a of_o that_o church_n with_o false_a doctrine_n and_o not_o the_o disannul_n of_o either_o so_o that_o if_o god_n have_v yet_o leave_v you_o the_o
