we_o and_o the_o papist_n do_v affirm_v that_o while_o we_o consider_v the_o mercy_n of_o god_n and_o merit_n of_o christ_n we_o have_v cause_n of_o assurance_n as_o the_o protestant_n teach_v but_o when_o we_o look_v into_o ourselves_o we_o have_v just_a cause_n to_o doubt_v according_a to_o the_o doctrine_n of_o the_o papist_n but_o i_o answer_v if_o we_o look_v into_o ourselves_o as_o we_o

yea_o it_o be_v presumption_n for_o a_o man_n in_o that_o case_n to_o make_v but_o a_o doubtful_a matter_n of_o it_o but_o although_o we_o be_v to_o be_v humble_v in_o the_o conceit_n of_o our_o own_o
