spirit_n ans_fw-fr i_o say_v it_o be_v true_a for_o that_o be_v but_o do_v to_o delude_v the_o simple_a through_o hypocrisy_n to_o make_v their_o lie_n more_o feasible_a as_o so_o the_o minister_n of_o satan_n be_v sometime_o transform_v as_o if_o they_o be_v minister_n of_o righteousness_n as_o have_v be_v show_v before_o and_o so_o be_v they_o 9_o that_o our_o direct_v to_o observe_v the_o light_n in_o the_o conscience_n be_v nothing_o else_o but_o to_o advise_v they_o to_o obey_v satan_n ans_fw-fr i_o say_v true_a in_o such_o case_n wherein_o i_o instance_a to_o wit_n to_o they_o in_o who_o he_o rule_v it_o be_v no_o better_o but_o so_o 10._o that_o we_o direct_v people_n to_o eye_n and_o observe_v that_o lie_a spirit_n that_o be_v in_o they_o ans_fw-fr so_o they_o do_v by_o such_o direction_n to_o all_o those_o who_o they_o so_o direct_v in_o who_o he_o reign_v 11._o that_o naylors_n doctrine_n be_v quite_o contrary_a that_o any_o that_o lack_v wisdom_n shall_v ask_v it_o of_o god_n ans_fw-fr i_o say_v in_o my_o book_n just_o so_o and_o show_v my_o reason_n for_o it_o because_o i_o find_v it_o not_o in_o any_o of_o his_o book_n but_o only_o a_o direction_n to_o seek_v it_o within_o before_o they_o have_v it_o and_o if_o they_o have_v it_o not_o already_o than_o they_o want_v it_o and_o aught_o to_o ask_v it_o of_o god_n and_o not_o to_o seek_v it_o where_o it_o be_v want_v and_o not_o to_o be_v find_v but_o it_o be_v a_o gross_a directory_n so_o to_o advise_v they_o as_o so_o i_o call_v it_o in_o my_o book_n 12._o that_o satan_n have_v get_v a_o commission_n to_o be_v a_o lie_a spirit_n in_o my_o mouth_n ans_fw-fr very_o true_a and_o if_o he_o call_v this_o a_o lie_n he_o must_v father_n all_o these_o lie_n himself_o and_o so_o be_v a_o devil_n and_o the_o father_n of_o lie_n for_o it_o be_v not_o god_n he_o can_v lie_v 13._o that_o james_n naylor_n be_v send_v with_o strong_a delusion_n to_o some_o that_o they_o may_v believe_v a_o lie_n ans_fw-fr true_o and_o that_o to_o very_o many_o of_o those_o that_o believe_v not_o the_o truth_n but_o have_v pleasure_n in_o unrighteousness_n as_o so_o i_o say_v it_o again_o and_o show_v reason_n for_o it_o in_o my_o book_n 14._o that_o i_o will_v needs_o be_v account_v some_o great_a prophet_n and_o to_o have_v some_o extraordinary_a revelation_n that_o no_o man_n else_o have_v know_v before_o and_o yet_o teach_v we_o nothing_o except_o lie_n etc._n etc._n ans_fw-fr i_o say_v it_o be_v true_a he_o that_o teach_v we_o nothing_o except_o lie_n but_o what_o we_o know_v before_o now_o this_o except_o lie_n he_o leave_v out_o and_o put_v in_o &c._n &c._n as_o be_v usual_a in_o the_o bishop_n time_n when_o they_o be_v ashamed_a to_o declare_v all_o 15._o that_o james_n nayor_n utter_o deny_v the_o manhood_n of_o christ_n ans_fw-fr so_o he_o do_v by_o clear_a consequence_n from_o his_o doctrine_n as_o be_v prove_v in_o the_o treatise_n for_o that_o he_o blame_v we_o for_o own_v a_o christ_n without_o and_o at_o a_o distance_n to_o wit_n his_o body_n be_v in_o heaven_n as_o well_o as_o he_o be_v present_a with_o we_o in_o spirit_n 16._o that_o i_o blame_v man_n for_o praise_v and_o sing_v of_o psalm_n in_o spirit_n unto_o god_n as_o the_o apostle_n do_v ans_fw-fr in_o spirit_n and_o with_o the_o mouth_n and_o voice_n he_o do_v call_v they_o devil_n rhyme_n most_o wicked_o and_o profane_o as_o be_v show_v but_o not_o answer_v yet_o 17._o that_o i_o often_o produce_v the_o nonproficiency_n of_o the_o people_n as_o a_o ground_n of_o disparagement_n to_o the_o word_n itself_o ans_fw-fr so_o he_o do_v as_o a_o disparagement_n to_o the_o scripture_n itself_o which_o i_o call_v the_o express_a word_n of_o god_n and_o as_o a_o disparagement_n to_o the_o teach_n of_o man_n also_o which_o he_o can_v deny_v and_o therefore_o this_o be_v his_o lie_n 18._o that_o james_n naylor_n count_v himself_o the_o high_a and_o all_o below_o he_o either_o dwarffe_n or_o nothing_o like_o christian_n ans_fw-fr and_o this_o be_v true_a for_o reason_n therein_o show_v but_o be_v his_o recital_n he_o leave_v out_o those_o word_n to_o wit_n either_o like_a dwarffe_n and_o also_o the_o reason_n which_o he_o can_v answer_v 19_o that_o i_o reproach_v and_o disparage_v those_o that_o take_v heed_n to_o the_o sure_a word_n of_o pprophecy_n ans_fw-fr true_a for_o so_o he_o do_v all_o that_o take_v heed_n to_o the_o scripture_n which_o the_o apostle_n mean_v when_o he_o so_o call_v it_o 20._o that_o how_o the_o word_n be_v make_v flesh_n james_n naylor_n understand_v not_o ans_fw-fr true_a i_o say_v so_o let_v he_o prove_v the_o contrary_a by_o show_v it_o if_o he_o can_v 21._o that_o james_n naylors_n directory_n be_v quite_o contradictory_n to_o the_o directory_n of_o scripture_n ans_fw-fr true_a and_o it_o be_v so_o prove_v in_o the_o book_n 22_o that_o i_o naylor_n require_v scripture_n ground_n for_o what_o he_o assert_v which_o he_o never_o yet_o give_v ans_fw-fr it_o be_v i_o that_o require_v scripture_n ground_n of_o he_o for_o what_o he_o assert_v the_o which_o he_o have_v not_o yet_o nor_o can_v give_v and_o that_o make_v he_o to_o put_v it_o in_o the_o quite_o contrary_a sense_n as_o i_o suppose_v lest_o the_o simple_a shall_v discern_v he_o 23._o that_o we_o have_v no_o faith_n in_o god_n but_o in_o a_o lie_a spirit_n within_o ans_fw-fr it_o real_o appear_v that_o spirit_n within_o they_o be_v a_o lie_a spirit_n and_o yet_o in_o that_o they_o believe_v but_o the_o spirit_n of_o god_n be_v not_o a_o lie_a spirit_n therefore_o their_o faith_n be_v not_o in_o god_n 24._o that_o we_o will_v make_v the_o blood_n of_o christ_n of_o none_o effect_n ans_fw-fr it_o be_v true_a your_o doctrine_n do_v so_o what_o in_o your_o lie_v as_o it_o be_v prove_v in_o the_o treatise_n and_o not_o yet_o answer_v 25._o that_o our_o spirit_n teach_v we_o not_o to_o put_v off_o our_o hat_n when_o we_o pray_v ans_fw-fr i_o be_v so_o inform_v by_o those_o that_o have_v see_v you_o pray_v that_o your_o practice_n be_v so_o and_o then_o i_o suppose_v your_o spirit_n so_o teach_v you_o so_o that_o if_o it_o be_v not_o true_a yet_o it_o not_o my_o lie_n because_o i_o be_v so_o inform_v thus_o his_o twenty-five_o lie_n that_o he_o will_v father_n upon_o i_o i_o return_v back_o to_o himself_o in_o this_o short_a dress_n and_o shall_v pass_v over_o his_o language_n he_o give_v i_o as_o ground_v hence_o because_o it_o want_v foot_v and_o come_v to_o his_o last_o main_a charge_n and_o last_o say_v he_o thou_o go_v on_o to_o plead_v for_o a_o deal_n more_o of_o thy_o master_n stuff_n wherewithal_o he_o hold_v up_o his_o kingdom_n of_o pride_n and_o partiality_n and_o such_o like_a stuff_n as_o none_o ever_o plead_v for_o but_o the_o devil_n and_o his_o minister_n who_o be_v afraid_a that_o his_o kingdowne_n shall_v go_v down_o and_o thou_o say_v satan_n tell_v we_o that_o it_o be_v our_o duty_n to_o observe_v the_o language_n hold_v forth_o in_o scripture_n and_o the_o example_n of_o christ_n and_o his_o apostle_n and_o upon_o pain_n of_o damnation_n not_o to_o vary_v from_o it_o and_o this_o thou_o bring_v to_o plead_v against_o speak_v the_o word_n thou_o to_o a_o particular_a i_o answer_v if_o it_o be_v lay_v upon_o we_o as_o a_o injunction_n and_o that_o upon_o pain_n of_o damnation_n and_o no_o such_o injunction_n to_o be_v find_v in_o scripture_n it_o must_v needs_o be_v of_o satan_n but_o james_n naylor_n know_v there_o be_v no_o such_o injunction_n upon_o that_o penalty_n in_o all_o the_o scripture_n as_o to_o threaten_v damnation_n for_o use_v the_o custom_n of_o the_o country_n wherein_o there_o be_v no_o sin_n though_o they_o vary_v from_o the_o custom_n in_o old_a time_n as_o so_o if_o james_n naylor_n shall_v tell_v i_o that_o in_o regard_v christ_n wear_v a_o coat_n without_o seam_n therefore_o i_o may_v not_o wear_v any_o but_o such_o and_o that_o upon_o pain_n of_o damnation_n i_o shall_v also_o say_v that_o it_o come_v from_o the_o devil_n nor_o do_v i_o think_v that_o james_n will_v teach_v the_o quaker_n to_o follow_v the_o example_n of_o christ_n in_o this_o thing_n but_o he_o say_v have_v thou_o be_v all_o along_o cry_v up_o scripture_n in_o thy_o book_n for_o a_o rule_n and_o be_v now_o the_o language_n of_o it_o and_o the_o example_n of_o christ_n and_o his_o apostle_n therein_o become_v a_o persuasion_n of_o satan_n with_o thou_o have_v thou_o not_o here_o show_v what_o brood_n thou_o be_v one_o who_o prefer_v the_o devil_n pride_n and_o the_o world_n fashion_n before_o the_o example_n of_o christ_n and_o his_o apostle_n and_o will_v
every_o one_o have_v need_v but_o james_n naylor_n dare_v though_o he_o have_v his_o ground_n to_o seek_v for_o he_o show_v no_o reason_n worth_n mention_v i_o suppose_v he_o be_v afraid_a with_o judas_n lest_o he_o shall_v not_o seem_v charitable_a to_o the_o poor_a for_o under_o pretence_n of_o the_o poor_a so_o he_o can_v keep_v it_o from_o the_o minister_n of_o christ_n and_o so_o from_o christ_n himself_o he_o will_v have_v it_o for_o himself_o and_o the_o quaker-minister_n to_o fill_v their_o bag_n though_o they_o be_v thief_n and_o robber_n spiritual_o as_o judas_n be_v carnal_o for_o it_o be_v evident_a that_o he_o account_v no_o poor_a deserve_n nor_o no_o minister_n deserve_v but_o the_o quaker_n poor_a and_o minister_n though_o he_o say_v if_o they_o be_v find_v minister_n of_o christ_n far_o be_v it_o from_o i_o to_o hold_v from_o they_o that_o maintenance_n which_o christ_n ever_o allow_v his_o minister_n but_o that_o he_o allow_v none_o to_o be_v find_v his_o minister_n but_o the_o quaker-minister_n be_v evident_a for_o as_o for_o all_o such_o as_o preach_v in_o our_o public_a place_n which_o he_o call_v 〈◊〉_d our_o idol_n temple_n be_v condemn_v by_o he_o as_o minister_n of_o antichrist_n and_o not_o send_v of_o god_n so_o that_o he_o and_o i_o be_v at_o a_o great_a distance_n from_o accordance_n though_o he_o seem_v to_o grant_v to_o all_o that_o i_o plead_v for_o or_o ever_o intend_v it_o to_o wit_n such_o as_o be_v find_v to_o be_v minister_n of_o christ_n nor_o have_v i_o in_o the_o least_o plead_v for_o any_o other_o if_o they_o be_v know_v to_o be_v such_o and_o therefore_o though_o he_o imperious_o command_v i_o when_o i_o write_v again_o first_o to_o prove_v they_o so_o and_o then_o call_v they_o so_o i_o answer_v i_o call_v not_o any_o by_o name_n nor_o do_v i_o know_v but_o few_o of_o very_a many_o that_o be_v know_v faithful_a labourer_n in_o god_n harvest_n therefore_o i_o can_v enter_v into_o any_o particular_n it_o will_v be_v too_o large_a to_o prove_v every_o particular_a minister_n of_o christ_n send_v of_o god_n by_o the_o particular_a ground_n and_o reason_n to_o clear_v every_o man_n that_o yet_o be_v clear_a in_o the_o sight_n of_o god_n but_o i_o be_o not_o so_o omnitient_a yet_o if_o i_o hear_v they_o preach_v in_o the_o clear_a evidence_n and_o demonstration_n of_o the_o spirit_n and_o of_o power_n by_o that_o i_o can_v know_v they_o though_o i_o can_v demonstrate_v the_o same_o unto_o james_n naylor_n as_o such_o i_o know_v many_o that_o preach_v in_o our_o public_a

of_o their_o fruit_n i_o can_v certain_o know_v they_o to_o be_v thief_n and_o robber_n and_o such_o as_o be_v carnal_a and_o worldly_a and_o proud_a and_o vain_a boaster_n or_o heretic_n or_o schismatickes_n and_o such_o like_a i_o shall_v and_o do_v disowne_v they_o as_o much_o and_o more_o than_o james_n naylor_n do_v but_o among_o the_o rest_n i_o disowne_v james_n naylor_n in_o particular_a for_o be_v so_o much_o as_o like_v any_o minister_n of_o christ_n that_o ever_o be_v in_o the_o world_n but_o dare_v maintain_v he_o for_o one_o of_o the_o prime_a of_o all_o that_o ●athan_fw-ge have_v and_o the_o most_o audacious_a in_o a_o bad_a cause_n now_o he_o tell_v i_o further_o that_o another_o argument_n i_o use_v say_v we_o ought_v to_o account_v they_o as_o

though_o not_o to_o i_o but_o for_o all_o those_o mark_n that_o james_n naylor_n have_v give_v to_o know_v they_o by_o i_o will_v not_o follow_v he_o throughout_o because_o that_o this_o i_o know_v that_o if_o they_o be_v such_o who_o have_v the_o manifestation_n of_o the_o spirit_n and_o preach_v in_o the_o evidence_n and_o demonstration_n thereof_o and_o that_o with_o power_n though_o i_o
