justification_n after_o this_o manner_n then_o 1._o justification_n by_o faith_n be_v not_o necessary_o so_o much_o as_o a_o justification_n in_o conscience_n for_o as_o a_o child_n may_v laugh_v and_o cry_v action_n that_o will_v argue_v reason_n in_o the_o subject_n where_o they_o be_v and_o yet_o not_o have_v the_o evidence_n or_o clear_a knowledge_n that_o himself_o have_v reason_n so_o may_v it_o be_v suppose_v that_o a_o christian_n may_v have_v faith_n which_o will_v argue_v justification_n and_o yet_o not_o have_v the_o evidence_n that_o himself_o be_v justify_v we_o know_v by_o daily_a experience_n that_o many_o christian_n have_v that_o in_o they_o which_o if_o it_o be_v right_o understand_v will_v prove_v that_o they_o be_v justify_v while_o yet_o they_o want_v the_o evidence_n of_o this_o justification_n within_o themselves_o their_o conscience_n for_o long_a time_n together_o accuse_v and_o condemn_v they_o while_o there_o be_v ground_n and_o reason_n that_o they_o shall_v excuse_v and_o absolve_v they_o 2._o if_o faith_n evidence_n justification_n as_o a_o effect_n of_o it_o then_o may_v we_o as_o true_o be_v faith_v by_o our_o justification_n as_o to_o be_v justify_v by_o our_o faith_n and_o we_o must_v invert_v the_o order_n of_o the_o gospel_n and_o instead_o of_o say_v believe_v and_o thou_o shall_v be_v justify_v we_o must_v say_v henceforward_o thou_o be_v justify_v therefore_o believe_v 3._o it_o will_v unavoidable_o follow_v that_o we_o be_v justify_v by_o work_n as_o well_o as_o by_o faith_n forasmuch_o as_o our_o adversary_n themselves_o i_o think_v will_v not_o deny_v that_o work_n be_v a_o effect_n of_o their_o suppose_a justification_n as_o well_o as_o faith_n i_o be_o sure_a christ_n redeem_v we_o that_o we_o shall_v be_v

not_o at_o all_o material_a in_o this_o case_n because_o the_o apostle_n when_o he_o deny_v justification_n by_o work_n he_o exclude_v work_n altogether_o ro._n 3._o 28._o &_o 4._o 5._o but_o i_o suppose_v this_o be_v not_o mr._n eyre_n meaning_n the_o word_n evidence_n therefore_o may_v be_v take_v more_o proper_o and_o so_o faith_n may_v be_v say_v to_o evidence_n our_o justification_n either_o immediate_o and_o axiomatical_o or_o remote_o and_o syllogistical_o faith_n do_v evidence_n exiomatical_o as_o it_o be_v a_o assent_n to_o the_o truth_n of_o a_o divine_a testimony_n concern_v such_o or_o such_o a_o thing_n thus_o the_o apostle_n say_v that_o faith_n do_v evidence_n to_o we_o that_o the_o world_n be_v frame_v by_o the_o word_n of_o god_n heb._n 11._o 1_o 3._o to_o wit_n as_o it_o be_v a_o firm_a assent_n to_o the_o divine_a testimony_n of_o scripture_n that_o god_n make_v the_o heaven_n and_o the_o earth_n and_o thus_o faith_n must_v be_v say_v to_o evidence_n justification_n axiomatical_o as_o it_o be_v a_o assent_n to_o this_o proposition_n i_o be_o justify_v but_o thus_o faith_n can_v evidence_n justification_n for_o first_o there_o be_v no_o such_o thing_n write_v ergo_fw-la it_o can_v be_v evidence_v by_o faith_n immediate_o where_o do_v the_o scripture_n say_v thou_o paul_n or_o thou_o peter_n or_o thou_o thomas_n be_v justify_v and_o where_o there_o be_v no_o divine_a testimony_n there_o can_v be_v neither_o object_n nor_o evidence_n of_o divine_a faith_n it_o be_v the_o carnal_a presumptuous_a damn_v faith_n of_o the_o world_n to_o believe_v that_o they_o be_v justify_v by_o a_o axiomatical_a assent_n though_o they_o do_v not_o come_v within_o the_o compass_n of_o any_o general_a truth_n or_o promise_n from_o which_o they_o may_v infer_v such_o a_o particular_a conclusion_n 2._o the_o faith_n by_o which_o we_o be_v justify_v be_v the_o faith_n which_o the_o apostle_n and_o minister_n of_o the_o gospel_n be_v to_o

avoucher_n of_o universal_a redemption_n ergo_fw-la faith_n do_v not_o evidence_n justification_n axiomatical_o nor_o yet_o can_v it_o evidence_n our_o justification_n syllogistical_o such_o a_o syllogistical_a evidence_n be_v the_o evidence_n of_o a_o particular_a conclusion_n draw_v out_o of_o some_o general_a proposition_n by_o the_o discourse_n of_o conscience_n in_o which_o way_n a_o

must_v first_o be_v evidence_v before_o faith_n can_v bring_v in_o the_o main_a evidence_n which_o lay_v in_o the_o conclusion_n i_o affirm_v then_o that_o it_o be_v impossible_a for_o a_o man_n by_o

and_o evidence_n before_o it_o can_v bring_v in_o the_o conclusion_n which_o universal_a proposition_n must_v contain_v that_o sort_n or_o kind_n of_o person_n of_o who_o justification_n may_v be_v

the_o major_n be_v false_a confest_o and_o the_o minor_a also_o must_v needs_o be_v false_a because_o he_o be_v suppose_v to_o be_v a_o believer_n that_o make_v the_o syllogism_n and_o therefore_o the_o conclusion_n must_v run_v mad_a and_o if_o faith_n can_v only_o evidence_n that_o he_o that_o believe_v be_v justify_v then_o can_v it_o not_o evidence_n any_o justification_n before_o believe_v peradventure_o it_o may_v be_v say_v which_o only_o can_v be_v say_v that_o faith_n may_v evidence_n justification_n syllogistical_o thus_o all_o the_o elect_n be_v justify_v but_o say_v a_o

be_v the_o question_n i_o meddle_v not_o with_o it_o to_o the_o minor_a i_o answer_v by_o deny_v it_o because_o we_o speak_v not_o now_o of_o what_o be_v true_a in_o itself_o in_o which_o sense_n i_o acknowledge_v it_o to_o be_v true_a that_o he_o that_o believe_v be_v elect_v but_o of_o what_o be_v true_o evidence_v by_o faith_n and_o faith_n can_v true_o evidence_n election_n before_o it_o have_v evidence_v justification_n for_o i_o renew_v the_o same_o argument_n thus_o faith_n do_v evidence_n election_n axiomatical_o or_o syllogistical_o not_o axiomatical_o for_o the_o scripture_n no_o where_n speak_v to_o particular_a person_n thou_o peter_n or_o thomas_n etc._n etc._n be_v elect_v if_o syllogistical_o then_o either_o by_o something_o before_o election_n or_o by_o the_o
