A62900 The principles of the Papists by which their leaders put them upon bloody and treacherous practices, plainly demonstrated by the Scriptures to be most erroneous and wicked. And a few better principles briefly laid down, for them (or others) to meditate on, tending to a peaceable life among men, &c. And also a few quæries left them last of all, to satisfie their consciences in. Partly for the sakes of those among them whose consciences have some tenderness in them, and are not quite feared: partly also for those who through ignorance are too much inclining to them. Also there may be some service of these things to others. By a lover of truth, mercifulness, plain-heartedness, humility and fidelity, W. T. Tomlinson, William. 1679 (1679) Wing T1850; ESTC R221759 49,364 105

perhaps_o seem_v too_o harsh_a to_o some_o of_o they_o yet_o have_v to_o deal_v with_o such_o bad_a principle_n in_o person_n who_o pretend_v to_o be_v invest_v with_o authority_n and_o power_n derive_v from_o christ_n in_o the_o work_n of_o his_o ministry_n and_o in_o his_o service_n i_o can_v not_o use_v easy_a language_n than_o i_o have_v do_v and_o as_o i_o have_v here_o manifest_v the_o destructive_a principle_n of_o the_o papist_n to_o be_v most_o erroneous_a and_o wicked_a i_o say_v the_o same_o against_o the_o destructive_a zeal_n of_o any_o professor_n of_o christianity_n upon_o what_o principle_n soever_o they_o go_v and_o under_o what_o name_n soever_o they_o stand_v and_o likewise_o affirm_v that_o no_o destructive_a zeal_n be_v renew_v after_o the_o image_n of_o he_o that_o have_v create_v we_o and_o make_v we_o new_a creature_n for_o as_o god_n send_v not_o his_o son_n into_o the_o world_n to_o destroy_v so_o he_o come_v not_o a_o destroyer_n but_o a_o saviour_n to_o save_v man_n life_n therefore_o will_v he_o not_o suffer_v james_n and_o john_n to_o destroy_v nor_o peter_n when_o he_o draw_v his_o sword_n and_o cut_v off_o malchus_n his_o ear_n but_o bid_v he_o put_v it_o up_o and_o then_o heal_v the_o ear_n again_o which_o he_o have_v cut_v off_o and_o have_v leave_v it_o upon_o record_n that_o his_o servant_n shall_v not_o go_v about_o that_o work_n to_o root_v out_o the_o tare_n out_o of_o the_o field_n that_o be_v the_o world_n that_o be_v a_o work_n reserve_v for_o the_o angel_n at_o the_o end_n of_o the_o world_n i_o shall_v now_o for_o conclusion_n leave_v a_o few_o query_n for_o the_o papist_n to_o satisfy_v their_o own_o conscience_n in_o rather_o than_o to_o expect_v a_o answer_n to_o they_o and_o i_o desire_v they_o to_o be_v impartial_a while_o they_o consider_v they_o 1._o whether_o the_o lord_n have_v take_v up_o a_o outward_a succession_n again_o since_o he_o lay_v aside_o abraham_n natural_a succession_n 2._o whether_o any_o be_v a_o true_a successor_n of_o peter_n or_o of_o the_o rest_n of_o the_o apostle_n who_o do_v not_o walk_v in_o the_o same_o spirit_n and_o doctrine_n 3._o whether_o christ_n have_v substitute_v a_o patron_n of_o lie_v perjury_n plot_n conspiracy_n cruelty_n and_o murder_n to_o be_v his_o vicar_n to_o represent_v he_o upon_o earth_n and_o to_o be_v the_o head_n of_o his_o church_n and_o a_o example_n to_o the_o flock_n and_o whether_o it_o be_v not_o great_a blasphemy_n to_o affirm_v it_o 4._o whether_o he_o be_v a_o friend_n or_o a_o enemy_n to_o christ_n who_o oppose_v the_o main_a end_n of_o his_o come_v as_o namely_o in_o these_o particular_n 1._o in_o point_n of_o enlighten_v 2._o in_o point_n of_o innocency_n 3._o in_o point_n of_o worship_n first_o because_o christ_n come_v to_o enlighten_v the_o world_n and_o to_o bring_v they_o out_o of_o darkness_n but_o the_o pope_n stop_v the_o light_n and_o keep_v man_n in_o darkness_n second_o christ_n come_v to_o raise_v up_o a_o harmless_a inoffensive_a quiet_a innocent_a people_n and_o of_o they_o a_o kingdom_n of_o peace_n where_o nothing_o shall_v hurt_v nor_o destroy_v but_o the_o pope_n bring_v forth_o a_o people_n quite_o contrary_a harmful_a offensive_a unquiet_a disturber_n of_o the_o civil_a peace_n by_o plot_n conspiracy_n murder_n etc._n etc._n three_o christ_n come_v to_o bring_v forth_o a_o people_n that_o shall_v worship_v god_n in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n such_o as_o the_o father_n seek_v to_o worship_v he_o but_o the_o pope_n require_v such_o worshipper_n as_o will_v stoop_v to_o his_o superstition_n and_o idolatrous_a worship_n after_o the_o formality_n that_o he_o prescribe_v or_o else_o they_o must_v expect_v a_o inquisition_n or_o some_o other_o usage_n as_o bad_a now_o consider_v whether_o he_o that_o thus_o oppose_v the_o end_n of_o christ_n coming_z be_v not_o a_o enemy_n 5._o whether_o he_o that_o know_v sin_n aforehand_o and_o yet_o entice_v or_o encourage_v his_o child_n into_o it_o by_o promise_v they_o pardon_n and_o indemnity_n if_o they_o do_v it_o do_v not_o very_o apt_o follow_v the_o step_n of_o that_o old_a serpent_n that_o deceive_v eve_n who_o tell_v she_o you_o shall_v not_o die_v though_o you_o eat_v 6._o whether_o those_o roman_a casuist_n do_v err_v that_o say_v it_o be_v no_o sin_n to_o swear_v a_o falsehood_n if_o they_o have_v a_o reserve_v in_o their_o mind_n to_o salve_v it_o with_o or_o it_o be_v the_o pope_n that_o err_v in_o promise_a pardon_n for_o such_o oath_n so_o make_v they_o sin_n for_o pardon_n be_v relative_n to_o sin_n 7._o whether_o equivocation_n and_o mental_a reserve_v will_v stand_v as_o a_o good_a plea_n for_o lie_v and_o perjury_n at_o that_o day_n when_o the_o righteous_a judge_n of_o all_o the_o world_n shall_v judge_v every_o man_n according_a to_o
man_n who_o have_v need_v to_o repent_v and_o pray_v god_n that_o the_o thought_n of_o his_o own_o heart_n may_v be_v forgive_v he_o argument_n 2._o i_o come_v now_o to_o a_o second_o argument_n against_o the_o pope_n and_o to_o show_v that_o he_o be_v no_o true_a successor_n to_o peter_n which_o i_o prove_v by_o show_v that_o he_o be_v not_o of_o abraham_n spiritual_a seed_n which_o of_o necessity_n every_o one_o must_v be_v that_o succeed_v either_o peter_n or_o any_o of_o the_o holy_a apostle_n of_o christ_n jesus_n to_o make_v this_o clear_a let_v we_o take_v notice_n of_o these_o two_o thing_n 1._o what_o manner_n of_o succession_n be_v cut_v off_o 2._o what_o manner_n of_o succession_n do_v remain_v first_o what_o manner_n of_o succession_n be_v cut_v off_o there_o be_v a_o succession_n once_o which_o be_v lineal_a in_o the_o same_o seed_n outward_o and_o so_o from_o abraham_n to_o christ_n they_o succeed_v one_o another_o as_o the_o son_n succeed_v the_o father_n but_o this_o be_v cut_v off_o as_o the_o scripture_n plain_o show_v rom._n 2.28_o 29._o for_o he_o be_v not_o a_o jew_n which_o be_v one_o outward_o but_o he_o be_v a_o jew_n which_o be_v one_o inward_o again_o rom._n 9.8_o the_o child_n of_o promise_n be_v count_v for_o the_o seed_n so_o also_o gal._n 3.7_o they_o which_o be_v of_o faith_n the_o same_o be_v the_o child_n of_o abraham_n and_o again_o the_o apostle_n speak_v of_o the_o cut_n off_o of_o the_o jew_n through_o their_o unbelief_n show_v that_o we_o who_o be_v of_o the_o gentile_n be_v graft_v in_o into_o abraham_n stock_n only_o by_o faith_n and_o so_o by_o faith_n we_o stand_v rom._n 11.20_o well_o because_o of_o unbelief_n they_o be_v break_v off_o and_o thou_o stand_v by_o faith_n be_v not_o high-minded_a but_o fear_n so_o than_o you_o see_v that_o outward_a succession_n in_o abraham_n line_n be_v cut_v off_o through_o unbelief_n hence_o i_o argue_v thus_o if_o god_n have_v lay_v aside_o that_o outward_a succession_n in_o abraham_n line_n who_o be_v call_v the_o friend_n of_o god_n he_o will_v not_o take_v up_o any_o outward_a succession_n again_o to_o entail_v his_o promise_n upon_o and_o if_o succession_n be_v cut_v off_o from_o that_o natural_a seed_n for_o want_v of_o faith_n than_o all_o outward_a succession_n as_o from_o place_n or_o any_o other_o outward_a thing_n whatsoever_o will_v not_o hold_v where_o true_a faith_n be_v want_v but_o will_v fail_v he_o that_o depend_v upon_o it_o as_o well_o as_o it_o fail_v the_o jew_n so_o than_o whosoever_o pretend_v a_o succession_n in_o abraham_n seed_n without_o which_o he_o can_v be_v a_o successor_n to_o peter_n he_o must_v establish_v his_o succession_n in_o another_o thing_n than_o either_o in_o a_o outward_a seed_n or_o in_o place_n or_o any_o such_o like_a outward_a thing_n therefore_o second_o let_v we_o now_o take_v further_a notice_n what_o manner_n of_o succession_n that_o be_v which_o abide_v and_o wherein_o that_o be_v establish_v which_o make_v one_o a_o successor_n in_o the_o seed_n of_o abraham_n this_o do_v not_o stand_v in_o any_o outward_a thing_n but_o in_o that_o faith_n which_o follow_v the_o step_n of_o abraham_n rom._n 4.11_o 12._o faith_n be_v reckon_v to_o abraham_n for_o righteousness_n before_o he_o be_v circumcise_v as_o the_o forego_n word_n do_v show_v that_o he_o may_v be_v the_o father_n of_o all_o they_o that_o believe_v though_o they_o be_v not_o circumcise_v that_o righteousness_n may_v be_v import_v unto_o they_o and_o the_o father_n of_o circumcision_n to_o they_o who_o be_v

plain_o who_o be_v abraham_n child_n now_o and_o so_o christ_n namely_o they_o that_o walk_v in_o the_o step_n of_o that_o faith_n of_o our_o father_n abraham_n and_o they_o only_o for_o it_o be_v say_v rom._n 11.20_o thou_o stand_v by_o faith_n he_o not_o high-minded_a but_o fear_n ver._n 21._o for_o if_o god_n spare_v not_o the_o natural_a branch_n take_v heed_n lest_o he_o also_o spare_v

the_o faith_n of_o abraham_n sure_o his_o work_n loud_o proclaim_v the_o contrary_n if_o you_o be_v the_o child_n of_o abraham_n you_o will_v do_v the_o work_n of_o abraham_n say_v christ_n jesus_n
