true_o believe_v that_o christ_n be_v the_o messiah_n they_o err_v that_o think_v it_o lawful_a to_o eat_v thing_n offer_v to_o idol_n and_o yet_o they_o err_v not_o in_o believe_v in_o christ_n no_o two_o man_n in_o the_o world_n its_o like_a have_v the_o same_o degree_n of_o personal_a faith_n and_o knowledge_n as_o i_o oft_o say_v before_o but_o if_o our_o profess_a object_n of_o faith_n that_o be_v god_n word_n be_v false_a in_o one_o thing_n we_o can_v not_o be_v sure_a that_o it_o be_v true_a in_o any_o thing_n yet_o here_o i_o tell_v you_o before_o 1._o that_o a_o man_n may_v be_v much_o sure_a that_o one_o part_n of_o scripture_n be_v god_n word_n than_o another_o because_o some_o copy_n be_v doubtful_a in_o the_o diverse_a readins_n of_o some_o particular_a word_n or_o sentence_n and_o which_o of_o they_o that_o so_o differ_v be_v god_n word_n we_o oft_o know_v not_o but_o so_o much_o as_o we_o be_v sure_o be_v the_o word_n of_o god_n we_o be_v sure_o be_v true_a so_o if_o the_o authority_n of_o some_o few_o book_n be_v once_o doubt_v of_o as_o 2_o pet._n jam._n jud._n heb._n &c._n &c._n and_o yet_o be_v by_o any_o it_o follow_v not_o that_o they_o doubt_v of_o the_o truth_n of_o any_o which_o they_o know_v to_o be_v the_o word_n of_o god_n 2._o or_o if_o any_o do_v hold_v that_o the_o penman_n may_v be_v leave_v to_o their_o natural_a fallibility_n in_o some_o by_o historical_a circumstance_n or_o word_n it_o will_v not_o follow_v that_o one_o article_n of_o the_o gospel_n or_o christian_a faith_n be_v doubtful_a which_o be_v plain_o as_o the_o kernel_n of_o it_o deliver_v in_o all_o the_o scripture_n and_o also_o by_o infallible_a universal_a tradition_n by_o itself_o in_o the_o sacrament_n creed_n lord_n prayer_n and_o decalogue_n and_o our_o case_n also_o much_o differ_v from_o the_o papist_n in_o this_o for_o we_o profess_v that_o our_o objective_a faith_n god_n word_n be_v infallible_a and_o we_o be_v infallible_a so_o far_o as_o we_o believe_v it_o but_o we_o confess_v that_o we_o be_v liable_a to_o misunderstand_v some_o part_n of_o it_o and_o so_o far_o be_v fallible_a as_o be_v imperfect_a but_o the_o papist_n say_v that_o their_o pope_n and_o council_n and_o universal_a practiser_n be_v personal_o infallible_a so_o as_o not_o to_o be_v liable_a to_o any_o misunderstanding_n of_o any_o article_n of_o faith_n say_v some_o or_o article_n of_o catholic_n faith_n say_v other_o and_o so_o they_o make_v their_o own_o act_n of_o believe_v to_o be_v commensurate_a and_o equal_o certain_a with_o god_n word_n of_o faith_n and_o therefore_o they_o allow_v you_o to_o question_v they_o in_o all_o if_o they_o err_v in_o one_o as_o pretend_v to_o a_o gift_n of_o never_o err_a in_o any_o d._n but_o be_v it_o not_o a_o great_a reason_n to_o incline_v we_o to_o they_o rather_o than_o to_o you_o when_o they_o only_o pretend_v to_o infallibility_n and_o you_o confess_v that_o you_o be_v all_o fallible_a in_o your_o belief_n r._n this_o be_v to_o be_v the_o subject_n of_o our_o next_o conference_n and_o therefore_o not_o now_o to_o be_v anticipate_v only_o i_o shall_v tell_v you_o that_o it_o be_v a_o mere_a noise_n of_o ambiguous_a word_n to_o deceive_v the_o heedless_a that_o can_v search_v out_o the_o meaning_n of_o they_o 1._o we_o not_o only_o pretend_v but_o profess_v and_o prove_v that_o our_o christian_a religion_n be_v altogether_o infallible_a for_o which_o end_n i_o have_v write_v divers_a treatise_n myself_o 2._o and_o we_o profess_v that_o all_o the_o mystical_a church_n of_o christ_n that_o be_v all_o sincere_a christian_n do_v true_o and_o infallible_o believe_v all_o that_o be_v essential_a to_o christianity_n and_o as_o much_o of_o the_o integral_n as_o they_o can_v know_v 3._o and_o we_o profess_v that_o the_o catholic_n church-visible_a that_o be_v all_o professor_n of_o christianity_n in_o the_o world_n do_v profess_v all_o these_o essential_o of_o christianity_n and_o be_v infallible_a in_o this_o profession_n but_o we_o hold_v withal_o that_o there_o be_v no_o particular_a church_n or_o bishop_n no_o synod_n or_o council_n that_o be_v so_o infallible_a but_o that_o 1._o they_o that_o hold_v to_o the_o essential_o may_v misunderstand_v and_o err_v about_o some_o integral_n 2._o and_o those_o person_n have_v no_o certainty_n that_o they_o shall_v not_o err_v by_o heresy_n or_o apostasy_n from_o the_o essential_o themselves_o so_o that_o the_o church_n be_v infallible_a because_o it_o be_v essentiate_v by_o believe_v a_o infallible_a word_n which_o who_o ever_o believe_v not_o cease_v to_o be_v of_o the_o church_n not_o god_n word_n infallible_a because_o the_o church_n or_o any_o number_n of_o man_n believe_v it_o or_o say_v its_o true_a for_o truth_n be_v before_o knowledge_n and_o faith_n as_o aristotle_n be_v a_o philosopher_n because_o he_o understand_v and_o teach_v the_o doctrine_n of_o real_a philosophy_n and_o not_o that_o doctrine_n call_v physics_n or_o philosophy_n because_o that_o aristotle_n know_v or_o teach_v it_o but_o alas_o what_o work_n shall_v i_o show_v you_o when_o i_o come_v to_o open_v their_o bewildr_a uncertainty_n d._n but_o to_o deal_v free_o with_o you_o methinks_v their_o way_n of_o measure_v out_o the_o necessary_n in_o faith_n and_o religion_n according_a to_o man_n various_a part_n and_o opportunity_n seem_v to_o i_o more_o satisfactory_a than_o you_o who_o fix_v upon_o certain_a point_n as_o the_o baptismal_a covenant_n as_o essential_o for_o there_o be_v great_a diversity_n of_o man_n capacity_n r._n this_o come_v from_o confound_v several_a question_n as_o if_o they_o be_v all_o one_o 1._o it_o be_v one_o question_n what_o be_v the_o christian_a religion_n 2._o ☞_o it_o be_v another_o question_n whether_o the_o christian_a religion_n be_v absolute_o necessary_a to_o the_o salvation_n of_o all_o those_o to_o who_o it_o be_v never_o competent_o reveal_v 3._o and_o it_o be_v another_o question_n whether_o more_o than_o the_o essential_o of_o christian_a religion_n be_v not_o necessary_a to_o the_o salvation_n of_o many_o who_o have_v opportunity_n to_o know_v more_o alas_o what_o work_n do_v confusion_n make_v in_o the_o world_n to_o the_o first_o it_o be_v evident_a that_o as_o mahometanism_n be_v a_o thing_n which_o may_v be_v define_v so_o much_o more_o may_v christianity_n who_o that_o write_v of_o the_o several_a religion_n of_o the_o world_n ethnic_a jewish_a mahometan_a and_o christian_n do_v not_o take_v they_o to_o be_v distinguishable_a and_o

the_o true_a covenanter_n and_o the_o church_n have_v ever_o call_v our_o baptism_n our_o christen_n be_v christianity_n nothing_o if_o something_o why_o may_v it_o not_o be_v define_v and_o difference_v from_o all_o false_a religion_n and_o if_o so_o it_o have_v its_o essential_a constitutive_a part_n all_o this_o be_v plain_a to_o child_n that_o will_v see_v 2._o and_o then_o as_o to_o the_o second_o question_n it_o concern_v not_o our_o controversy_n at_o all_o it_o be_v but_o whether_o any_o infidel_n may_v be_v save_v or_o any_o that_o be_v no_o christian_n and_o if_o it_o can_v be_v prove_v that_o any_o be_v save_v that_o be_v no_o christian_n do_v you_o thereby_o prove_v that_o they_o be_v christian_n or_o member_n of_o the_o christian_a church_n or_o that_o christianity_n be_v not_o a_o religion_n which_o may_v be_v define_v 3._o and_o as_o to_o the_o three_o question_n we_o be_v on_o all_o side_n agree_v in_o it_o that_o they_o that_o have_v more_o than_o the_o naked_a essential_o of_o christianity_n reveal_v to_o they_o apt_o be_v bind_v to_o believe_v more_o yea_o it_o be_v hardly_o conceivable_a that_o any_o one_o shall_v know_v and_o believe_v the_o essential_o only_o and_o no_o more_o it_o be_v not_o essential_a to_o the_o christian_a covenant_n or_o christianity_n to_o know_v that_o the_o name_n of_o christ_n mother_n be_v mary_n or_o that_o pontius_n pilate_n be_v the_o man_n that_o condemn_v he_o and_o if_o a_o ignorant_a man_n think_v that_o his_o continuance_n in_o the_o grave_n be_v four_o day_n i_o do_v not_o think_v that_o this_o will_v damn_v his_o soul_n to_o hell_n much_o less_o the_o not_o believe_v that_o mary_n die_v a_o virgin_n and_o yet_o it_o be_v not_o like_a that_o any_o man_n shall_v come_v to_o the_o essential_o of_o christianity_n by_o any_o such_o way_n as_o shall_v acquaint_v he_o with_o no_o one_o of_o these_o or_o any_o point_n beside_o the_o say_a essential_o and_o yet_o it_o be_v certain_a for_o all_o this_o that_o he_o that_o true_o receive_v the_o essential_o and_o be_v true_a to_o the_o baptismal_a covenant_n shall_v be_v
