or_o universal_a church_n indeed_o i_o note_v three_o that_o that_o church_n which_o can_v err_v be_v not_o the_o visible_a company_n of_o pastor_n and_o doctor_n but_o the_o invisible_a society_n of_o all_o the_o faithful_a in_o the_o world_n where_o by_o invisible_a i_o mean_v not_o that_o any_o of_o the_o elect_a be_v invisible_a in_o his_o corporal_a consistence_n but_o that_o the_o

be_v it_o most_o true_a with_o all_o this_o that_o the_o universal_a church_n as_o universal_a be_v invisible_a to_o elias_n and_o that_o there_o be_v many_o thousand_o of_o true_a believer_n even_o then_o in_o samaria_n who_o ●lias_o neither_o see_v nor_o know_v and_o therefore_o do_v god_n answer_v he_o say_v i_o have_v reserve_v to_o myself_o seven_o thousand_o man_n which_o have_v not_o bow_v the_o knee_n to_o baal_n 3._o i_o note_v four_o that_o howsoever_o the_o visible_a bishop_n and_o pastor_n err_v yet_o do_v not_o the_o universal_a church_n err_v so_o long_o as_o the_o faith_n remain_v in_o any_o one_o whosoever_o i_o note_v fift_o that_o as_o in_o the_o time_n of_o elias_n there_o be_v seven_o thousand_o faithful_a person_n who_o he_o know_v not_o even_o so_o be_v there_o in_o those_o day_n papist_n when_o martin_n luther_n begin_v his_o reformation_n many_o thousand_o among_o the_o papist_n that_o sincere_o believe_v the_o gospel_n who_o he_o neither_o see_v nor_o know_v the_o 6_o reply_n the_o scripture_n tell_v we_o that_o the_o church_n can_v err_v for_o as_o the_o apostle_n say_v it_o be_v the_o house_n of_o the_o live_a god_n 15._o the_o pillar_n and_o ground_n of_o truth_n therefore_o either_o god_n apostle_n teach_v false_a doctrine_n or_o else_o doubtless_o the_o truth_n must_v ever_o be_v in_o the_o church_n the_o answer_n i_o answer_v that_o the_o true_a church_n of_o god_n which_o be_v the_o mystical_a body_n of_o christ_n do_v never_o err_v whole_o and_o general_o in_o the_o fundamental_a point_n of_o religion_n and_o such_o as_o be_v necessary_a for_o our_o salvation_n i_o say_v first_o the_o true_a church_n of_o god_n because_o the_o society_n of_o the_o visible_a pastor_n be_v not_o ever_o the_o mystical_a member_n of_o christ._n i_o say_v second_o whole_o and_o general_o because_o albeit_o the_o truth_n may_v fail_v for_o a_o time_n in_o the_o pastor_n of_o the_o church_n yet_o shall_v it_o never_o perish_v in_o the_o elect_a and_o true_a member_n thereof_o for_o though_o particular_a church_n may_v err_v in_o particular_a point_n yet_o shall_v the_o whole_a church_n never_o err_v in_o the_o article_n of_o necessary_a doctrine_n though_o the_o elect_n may_v err_v in_o part_n and_o at_o sometime_o yet_o shall_v they_o never_o err_v err_v either_o all_o general_o or_o any_o one_o final_o for_o who_o and_o in_o respect_n of_o who_o the_o church_n be_v right_o call_v the_o pillar_n of_o truth_n this_o my_o exposition_n be_v make_v good_a by_o the_o testimony_n of_o s._n austen_n who_o word_n be_v these_o

the_o sabbath_n to_o be_v any_o other_o than_o the_o church_n of_o christ_n yet_o the_o church_n of_o christ_n in_o the_o saint_n the_o church_n of_o christ_n in_o those_o which_o be_v not_o

be_v carry_v away_o with_o false_a doctrine_n but_o if_o the_o pastor_n all_o have_v err_v as_o you_o will_v have_v we_o to_o believe_v then_o in_o vain_a do_v god_n give_v pastor_n to_o his_o church_n to_o preserve_v we_o in_o the_o truth_n for_o they_o that_o shall_v have_v teach_v the_o truth_n do_v even_o themselves_o swerve_v from_o the_o truth_n and_o so_o they_o become_v unfit_a instrument_n to_o do_v the_o will_n of_o god_n the_o answer_n i_o say_v first_o that_o albeit_o god_n will_v be_v one_o as_o himself_o be_v one_o will_v by_o his_o own_o essence_n and_o by_o one_o eternal_a and_o immutable_a act_n whatsoever_o he_o will_v yet_o be_v his_o will_n say_v to_o be_v manifold_a aswell_o of_o the_o holy_a father_n as_o of_o the_o schooledoctor_n and_o this_o be_v do_v for_o two_o special_a consideration_n the_o former_a be_v for_o the_o variety_n of_o the_o thing_n which_o god_n will_v the_o latter_a be_v forget_v for_o the_o variety_n of_o the_o manner_n by_o which_o god_n seem_v to_o will_n thing_n hereupon_o arise_v many_o division_n of_o god_n will_v assign_v by_o learned_a writer_n for_o explication_n sake_n some_o divide_v god_n will_v into_o antecedent_n and_o consequent_a some_o other_o divide_v it_o into_o the_o will_n of_o sign_n and_o will_v of_o good_a pleasure_n other_o into_o the_o will_v reveal_v and_o will_v not_o reveal_v other_o into_o the_o will_v absolute_a an●_n will_v conditionate_n and_o the_o like_a i_o say_v second_o that_o though_o god_n will_v consequent_a and_o will_v of_o good_a pleasure_n be_v ever_o accomplish_v undoubted_o yet_o be_v his_o will_n antecedent_n and_o will_n of_o sign_n oftentimes_o neglect_v and_o leave_v undo_v of_o the_o former_a will_n the_o prophet_n speak_v in_o these_o word_n whatsoever_o please_v y_o e_o lord_n 6._o that_o do_v he_o in_o heaven_n and_o in_o earth_n and_o in_o the_o sea_n and_o in_o all_o the_o depth_n and_o the_o apostle_n say_v for_o who_o have_v resist_v his_o will_n of_o the_o latter_a we_o have_v many_o example_n in_o the_o holy_a scripture_n first_o 19_o god_n command_v pharaoh_n by_o moses_n to_o let_v his_o people_n go_v but_o pharaoh_n will_v not_o obey_v second_o 37_o god_n will_v have_v gather_v the_o jew_n together_o even_o as_o the_o hen_n gather_v her_o chicken_n under_o her_o wing_n 4_o but_o they_o will_v not_o have_v it_o so_o three_o god_n will_v have_v all_o man_n to_o be_v save_v as_o paul_n bear_v witness_n and_o yet_o we_o know_v by_o the_o holy_a gospel_n that_o the_o great_a part_n be_v damn_v 16_o i_o say_v three_o that_o god_n will_v mention_v in_o s._n paul_n and_o now_o object_v against_o my_o resolution_n be_v only_o voluntas_fw-la signi_fw-la his_o will_n of_o sign_n beneplaciti_fw-la and_o not_o voluntas_fw-la beneplaciti_fw-la his_o will_n of_o good_a pleasure_n and_o therefore_o it_o can_v never_o be_v effectual_o conclude_v out_o of_o this_o text_n which_o hitherto_o have_v ever_o be_v repute_v the_o strong_a bulwark_n of_o popery_n and_o either_o dissemble_v or_o light_o pass_v over_o by_o the_o grave_a writer_n that_o the_o pastor_n of_o the_o visible_a church_n always_o teach_v the_o truth_n and_o never_o swerve_v from_o the_o same_o thus_o more_o plain_o for_o the_o simple_a and_o ignorant_a sort_n when_o the_o apostle_n say_v 14._o that_o god_n place_v pastor_n and_o doctor_n in_o the_o church_n that_o the_o people_n be_v not_o carry_v away_o with_o false_a doctrine_n he_o neither_o mean_v that_o the_o pastor_n shall_v always_o infallible_o teach_v the_o truth_n nor_o that_o the_o people_n shall_v always_o constant_o embrace_v the_o truth_n i_o prove_v it_o because_o the_o apostle_n speak_v indefinite_o and_o indifferent_o of_o all_o teacher_n and_o of_o all_o hearer_n of_o all_o shepherd_n and_o of_o all_o sheep_n neither_o except_v one_o nor_o other_o and_o yet_o both_o you_o know_v and_o we_o know_v that_o many_o preacher_n preach_v false_a doctrine_n sake_n and_o that_o many_o hearer_n embrace_v the_o same_o whereupon_o it_o follow_v necessary_o that_o if_o the_o apostle_n mean_v as_o you_o will_v have_v he_o to_o mean_v then_o christ_n intent_n and_o purpose_n shall_v be_v frustrate_a indeed_o which_o yet_o be_v it_o that_o yourselves_o impugn_v the_o apostle_n therefore_o mean_v only_o this_o to_o declare_v voluntate_fw-la signi_fw-la what_o he_o will_v have_v his_o shepherd_n and_o sheep_n to_o do_v albeit_o voluntate_fw-la beneplaciti_fw-la the_o same_o be_v not_o ever_o accomplish_v this_o my_o explication_n of_o

it_o be_v evident_a that_o god_n will_v have_v all_o man_n save_v for_o so_o say_v the_o apostle_n deus_fw-la vult_fw-la omnes_fw-la homines_fw-la saluos_fw-la fieri_fw-la 2.4_o god_n will_v be_v that_o all_o man_n be_v save_v and_o come_v to_o the_o acknowledge_v of_o the_o truth_n whereby_o we_o see_v that_o god_n will_v and_o intent_n be_v to_o save_v all_o and_o yet_o do_v we_o know_v
