erroneous_a opinion_n touch_v faith_n against_o the_o then_o present_a church_n of_o god_n but_o to_o return_v more_o particular_o to_o the_o subject_n of_o this_o treatise_n the_o source_n from_o whence_o this_o libertinism_n in_o belief_n impugn_a here_n by_o i_o do_v take_v it_o origin_n and_o beginning_n be_v the_o contempt_n of_o the_o authority_n of_o christ_n church_n and_o the_o assume_v authority_n of_o each_o man_n private_a spirit_n for_o thus_o reason_v the_o neutrallist_n in_o religion_n both_o the_o papist_n and_o protestant_n do_v agree_v in_o believe_v the_o trinity_n

the_o say_a article_n for_o they_o teach_v mere_a contrary_a doctrine_n therein_o so_o as_o if_o the_o one_o side_n teach_v true_a it_o necessary_o follow_v that_o the_o other_o side_n teach_v false_a

impossible_a for_o i_o to_o believe_v they_o both_o therefore_o my_o private_a spirit_n bid_v i_o to_o believe_v neither_o but_o to_o hold_v the_o doctrine_n of_o purgatory_n prayer_n to_o saint_n freewill_n etc._n etc._n and_o all_o other_o controvert_v point_n of_o faith_n at_o this_o day_n between_o the_o papist_n and_o the_o protestant_n to_o be_v matter_n mere_o accessary_a and_o of_o
