prevents the Fruits of Reientanpe. So that the Gene-

That Faith Alone is the Proximate Condition of Juli-

wou'd openly objet, against what I had any where faid
of the Nature of Slvation. How greatly then was I
furpriz'd fome Months ago, when I was Lhewn a Kind
of Circular Letter, which one of thofe whom ihe Ha/y
GAofl itbh mlr OverJrtrs of his Church, J was inform-
ed had fent to all the Clergy of his Diocefe !

Part of it ran (nearly, if not exaUly) thu :

There is Great Indifcretion in preaching up a Sort
Religion, as the True and Only Chrilminity, which
in their own Account of ir, confills- in an Enthu-
fiallick Ardor, to be underilood or attained by very
few, and nor to be praCtiled without breaking in
upon the Common Duties of Lil."

0 my Lord, what Manner of Words are thee Sup-
poling Candor and Love out of the Quesijon, are they
Words of Truth ? I dare flake my Life upon it, there is
not One True Claufe in all this Paragraph.

The Propofitions contained therein, are thefe:

i. That the Religion I preach confits in an Enthu-
fialtick Ardor:
2. That it can be attained by very few:
3. That it can be underflood by very few:
4. Thar it cannot be praclifed without breaking in.

while I answer for myself.,
SIn considering, therefore, 'fucl Parts of thefe Ob-

that Method which, I believe, hiat Author delires,
ufing no Ceremony at all; but (peaking as to an E-
qual, that it may the more eafily be difcern'd,
where the Truth lies.
The fift Query relating to Doftriti, is this :
"Whther Notions in Religion may not be heightened
to filch Extremes, as to lead Srme into a Difregard of
Religion itself, throw' Defpair of attaining fuch exalted
Heights? And whether Others who have imbibed
rhole Notions, may not be led by them, into a Dilre-
gard and Difefleem of the Common Duties and Offices
of Life ?; To fuch a Degree, at leaft, as is inconfiftent
with that' Atertion to them, and that Diligence in
therrn which'Providerice has made neceffary to the
Well-being of Private Familes and Public Societies,
and which Chriflianiry does not only require in all Sta-
tions, and' in all Conditions, but declares at the fame
Time, that the Performance even of the lowel Offices
in Life, rs wrto GOD, (wbofe Providence has placed
People in their several Stations) is truly a Serviing cf

World ?"

A. All thefe Perrons, as well as I, can telfry ilfe,
that this is no Evidence at all of the Co-openition of

I fuppore you mean, Better' than an Attendance-
on that Preaching, which has often been accompanied
with thefe.'
I aufwer. s. There is no Manner of Need to fet
the one in Oppofition to the ether: Seeing we conti-
nually exhort all who attend on our Preathing, to
attend the Offices of the Church. And they do pay
a more regular Attendance there, than ever they did
before. z. Their attending the Church did not, in
faiL, answer thofe Ends at all, till they attended this
Preaching alfo. 3. It is the Preaching Remition of
Sins tbro' Jefus Chrift, which alone antwer3 the True
Ends of Devotion. And this will always be accom-
panidd wih the Co-operation of the Holy Spirit;
tho' not -always with Sudden Agonies, Roarings,
Screamings, Tremblingt. or Droppings down. Indeed,
if Gon is pleased at any Time to permit any of there,
I cannot hinder it. Neither can this hinder the
Work of his Spirit in the Soul : which may be carri-
ed on either with or without them. But, 4. I cannot
apprehend-it to be any Reafonable Proof, That this

Awakeuings may have upon the Body; I pretend not
to explain. But I make no Qeftion Satan, to far as
he ges Power, may exert himself on uoch Oceafione,
partly to hinder the Good Work in the Perfons who
S are thus touched with the Ilh.rp Arrows of Conwviti-'
on, and partly to difparage the Work of GoD, as if
it tended to lead People to Diltration."
For Inflances of Madnefs you may refer to p. 88,
9go 9', 92, 93. The Words in p 88. are thefe :
I cqu'd not but be under fome Concerrr, with re-
gard to one or two Perfons, who were tormented in
an unaccountable Manner, and friend to be indeed

If you think the Cafe mentioned p. 92, 93. to be
another InAance of Madnefs, I contend not. It was
because I did not understand that uncommon Cafe,

Snakedly relate, and leave etiry Man to his own
"Judgment upon it." Only be pleaded to observe,
That this tnrTfs, it fuch it was, is no more chargeable

5 Q9ery the fifth. Whether thofe exalted Strains
in Religion, and an Imagination of being already in a
Stete of Perfeaiou, are not apt to lead Men to Spiritual
Pride, and to a Contempt of their Fellow Chtiftians ;
while they consider tkbr as only goingon in what they
call the iow and r impf.-Ri- Way, (i. e. as growing in
Grace and Goodnefs only by Degries) Even tho' it ap-
pear by the Lives of thole i ho are considered by them
as in that lowu and imprrf i Way, that they are Perfons
who are gradually working out their Salvation, by their

ances of Go o's Grace ; with an humble Reliance upon
'` the Merits of Chrift for the Pardon of their Sins, and
the Acceptance of their Sincere, tho' Imperfie Ser-
vices ?"
Imuft divide this Query too But firf permit me
to ask, What do you mean by tlefe exalted Strains in
R-digio:a I have faid again and again, I know no
more exalted Strain, than I will love Thee, 0 Lord,

i. Whether the preaching of loving Gon from
our samoft Bowels,", is not apt to lead Men to Spiritual
Pride, and to a Contempt of their Fllow Chriltians ?
A. N : But fo far as it takes Place, it will humble
them to the Dull.
a. Whether an Imagination of being already in
a State. of Perfi an, is not apt to lead Men into this Spi-
ritual Pride ?
.4. 1. If it be a Faoi, Imagination, it is Spiritual-
Pride. 2. But Trie Chridllan Perfection is no other
than Humble Love.
3. Do not Men who imagine they have attained
this, derpife others, as only going on in what they ac-
count the low and iimperfti, Way, i. e. as growing in
Grace and Goodnef, by Degrees ?
S M. Men who on/v imagine they have attained this,
S may probably defpile thole that are going on in Any
S Way. 2. But the growing in Grace and Goodnefi by
Degrees, is no Mark of a lowu and iwperfet Way.
Thofe who are Father, in Chrill, grow in Grace by
De ies, as well as the New born Babes.
S4. Do they not defpife thofe who are working
S out their S.iltation, with an humble Reliance upon the
Merits of Chrilt for the Pardon of their Sins, and the
Acceptance of their fincere tho' ,,fpe-f/eS Services?
A. i. They uho really love GoD, defpife no Min.

what Time forever Faith is given, Holinefs coiiitic

(uhich is the Source of Hooinefi) is /hed eab oad'il 1'd

But it is objefed by the Author of The Nation of
te Method ditf ifproeved," St. 74frm fays, C.a
Fitb.rfwe him? I anCwer, Such a Faith as is without
Works cannot rjng a Man to Heaten. But this is
quire beside the Piefent Queftion.
You object, 2. St Paul fays, That Faith' ia *
p ai.'. by Li'e, St. James, That Faith made r~ p
f-t br, WI'rt., is the Condition of Salvation." Yolt
nan Final Salvation. I fay to too: But this alfo is
befide the Quellion.
You objet, 3. That tie Belief of the Gofpel is
called the Obedience of Faitr, Rom. i5.. An 4.
That what Ibihiah terms Believing, St. Paul terms 0-
Sbyl/ag. Suppofe I grant you both the one and the
other, what will you infer ?
You objea, 5. That in one Scripture our Lord is
itiled The Saviour of them that believe : and in ano-
ther, heu Author of Eternal Salvation, to all them tat
obey him. 6. That to the Galatiant St. Paul writes,
Neither Crciumcifin availeth any thing, nor Unmircem-
.if.on, but Faith which worthh bby Love : And to the
Crintbians, Greumreifieo is nothing, and Uncircumcifoar
is nothing, bat the Aeeping the Commandments of GOD.
And hence you conclude, There are federal Texts
of Scripture, wherein Unbelief and Difobedience are
equivalently ufed." Very true: But can you con-
clude from thence, that we are not Saved b Faith alone ?
S1. You

ar. You proceed ,tof"T @n Text which.I
had quoted. The fIrft is 1 . By Grace y
are faced tbro' Faith. SBt .(ay you) Faith does
not mean here, that Grace epccially to cal'd, hat
includes alfo Obedience."' pw do you prove this ?

with a Coiqppen't Apn Coatct, .j Fo which I have
no other tObj~ ion, .bsacs ih is othi&lg at all to
the Qeftqnp.
Indeed Lome Time after you add, It is plain
then that Good Works are always, in St. Paul's Judg-
ment, join'd with Faith." (So undoubtedly they are,
that is, as an Effe& is always join'd with.its Caufe)
And teerefSre we are not faved by .akh aloned' I
cannot pofflibly allow the Confequence.
You afterwards cite Two more Texts, and add,
You fee mere Faith cannot be a Condition of J-
filicadon." You are out of your Way. We are no
more talking now of Jollification than of Final Salvation.
In considering A.i xvi. 3 1. Beheive in te Lr.i Jefa.i
and thou fualt beJ fved. You fay again, Here the
Word Bqlieve does not fignimv Faith only.-F4ith n .
ceiLrily produces Charity apd Repentance ; Tberifore.
thefe are exprer'd by the Word BDkh.e." i. e. Faith
nece4arily produces Holinefl. Therefore Holinefs is
a Condition of Holinefs. I want farther Proof.
T-hat Paul and Siles fp..te ueo hi-: t;i 'Wrd if the
Lord; and thit his Faith did -,i te fame HMar \sork
by Love, I take to be no Proof at all.
You then undertake to Crhew, that confeling our
Sinm, is a Condition of jifliication, and that a Con-
fidnce in .the Love of GoD, is not a Conditioa,
Some of your Words are, This, Good Sir, gi~c
me leave to ~ay, is the greatell Noanfeifc and Con-

fland this Jargon yourself. and therefore you lborur

IV. i. I am now to consider, What has been late-
ly objected, with Regard to the Nature of Saviig

The Author lall mentioned cannot understand how
thofe Texts of St. John are at all to the PUrpof;"
SyJohn iii s. Behold abat Manner of Love the Fatker
bath efo'w'dapon us, that vue Jfoud he cal4ulth' Sps
o/GOD. And c. 4. v. 19. le love him, anmfi he
- l:o ydus. I answer I. Thefe Textswere nopre-
duced in the 4"peal, by Way of Proof, but of liftrh-
tior only. But, 2. I apprehend they may be produced
as a Proof, both that Chrilliao Faith implies a Confi-
der.ce in the Love of GoD, and that ftch a Confidence
his a dirct Tendency to Salvation, to Holnefs both
of Hecrt and Life.
Ek /.l/ .ih.t M.weer of Love the Fathr hath he-

*GOD Are not there Words an Expreffion of Chritian
faith ? As dire& an one as can well be conceived ? And
I appeal to every Man, whether they do not express
ihe Ilrpngeft Confidence of the Live of Gop f Your
twn Comment puts this beyond Difpure. Let-us
coafider atterrively and with grateful Heart,. the great
)Lwe and Memy of Goq, in ealing us to be his Sons,
and bellowing on ts the Ptivileges belonging towIch."
Do )ou not perceive, that you have given up the Caufe I
You have yourself taught u',. that rhefe Words inply

The Apofle adds, Belowl, now are we the Sosg of
GOD ; and it dotb mot yet appear what .weJ allbe :
But 'we know that when he 5fb ll appear, ve /hall be
like 7im ; for we fall fre him as hb is.
I fuppofe no one will fay, either that there Words are
not expreffive of Chriftian Faith ; or, that they do not
imply the ftrongeft Confidence in the Love of GoD. It
follows, Andev'ry Man that bath t'is Hope in him, pu-
riieth himself even as he is pure.
Hence it appears, That this Faith is a Saving Faith,
that there is the clofet .Connexion between this Faith
and Holinefs. This Text therefore is directly to the
Purpose, in Refpea of both the Propoficions to b'e
The Other is, We love Him, iecaufe be firfh loved
.Us. And here alfo, for fear 1 fhou'd fail in the Proof,
You have drawn it up ready to my Hands.
S" GOD ent his only Son-to redeem us from Sin,
hy purchasing for us Grace and Salvation By which
Grace we-thro' Faith and Repentance have our Sins
pardoned-And therefore we are bound to return the
Tribute of our Love and Gratitude, and to obey hiin
faithfully as long as we live."
Now, that 'we have our Sins pardon'd, if we do not
knowu they are pardoned, cannot bind us either to Love
S or Obedience. But if we do know it, and by that
very Knowledge, or Confidence in the Pardoning Love
of GoD, are both bound and enabled to love and obey
him, this is the whole of what I contend for.
2. You afterwards objed againfl fame other Texts
which I had cited, to illuflrate the Nature of Saving
Faith. My Words were, Hear believing Job, de-
claring his Faith, I hbIow that my Redeemer liwth. I
here affirm two Things, i. That Job was then a Be-
liever. a. That he declared his Faith in thele Words.
And all I affirm, Yoa allow. Your own Words are,
GOD was pleaded to bellow upon him a firong Al-
u" urance.of his Favour-to inspire him with a Pro-
phecy of the Refurredion, and that he should have a
Share in it." I

have the True Faith, who has not a loving Heart."
-Therefore Faith is not a Confidence that any Man's
Sins are aaually forgiven, and he reconciled to Goo."
(What have the Premires to do with the Conclufion I)
4. To decide this, Let our Church (peak for herfelf.
Whether Ihe does not fuppofe and teach, that every
particular Believer knows that bis Sin are forgiven, and
be hi/elf is reconciled to GOn.
* Firli then, Our Church fuppofes and teaches every

in Faith was in Danger of drowning. So we, it we
begin to waver or doubt, it is to be fCared led we

F N t by Faith, and that wil a firong and AReAfU
.ith: Nothing doubting but tiat Chrift by his ewi
Oblation hath taken away our Sins, and hath reftored
us again to GOD's Favour." M&id.
I. If it be ftill aid, That ,the Church peaks qnly
of Men in general, but not of the Confidence of thi
or that parucular Perfon: Even.this laft, poor Subier-
fug, is utterly cut off by the following Words :
'To a, O Man, hail received, the Body .of ChriA
which was once broken, and his Blood which was fhe4
for the Remiflion of ty Sin. Thou halt received his
Body, to have within thet the Father, the Son, and the
S Holy Ghoft, for to endow the with Grace, and to
comfort thee with their Prefence. 'Thou hail receive
his Bedy,. to endow thee with everlafing Righteoufnels
apd te af.ui thee of everlafling Bils. Serman as the
efurreaio r.
S I hall add but one Paffage more, from the firll Part
i 9 of the Sermon on the Sacrament.
." dlave a fure and constant Faith, not only that the
Death of Chrift is available for all the World, bwt that
he hath made a FqI and efficient Sacrifice for that, a
petfeft Cleanfing of tcy Sins, fu that thou maylt fsy
with the Apolle, he lov.d thee and gave himlilf for
the. For this is, to make Chrill tI ie e .n, and to
aply his Merits unto thifif."
Let every reasonable 1hn iow judge for himself,
what is the Senfe of our Church as to the YAture
of Sa.ving Fiert. Does it not abundantly appear,
that the Church of Erg/ertd fuppofes every particular
Believer, to have a ture Confidence, that lAi Sirin are
forgiven and Le h..ri/fj reconciled to GOD ? Yea, andi
hbw can the abfolute Neci-ity of thii Faith, this un-
Swavering Confidence, be more firongly or peremptorily
alTeited, thart it ii in thofe \ Vords "' If ae begin to
wiaver or doubr. it i5 to b: feared, lell we l1ink as
Pete, did Not into the \'aier ; but into the boutom-
lefs Pit of Hell fire ?"
6. I would willing'y difmnfs this Writer here. I
had laid in the Earnel Appeal (what I am daily mor-
and'more confirmed in) that this Faith is usually give

( 36)
a.4 Moment. This you greatly dif ie. Yaur Ar-
gument aginit it, if put into Form, wil ran thu:
They who firl apprehended the Meanig of the
Words delivered, then gave their Afent to them, then
had Confidence in the Promifes to which they affected,
and laftly, loved GOD, did not receive Faith i a
SBut the Believers mentioned in the A fs, firl appre-
hended the Meaning of the Words, then gave "ar
Affent, then had Confidence in the Promntes, and
laftly, loved GOD: Therefore
The Believers mentioned in the Aas, did not re-
ceive Faith in a Moment."
I deny the Major. They might firft Apprehend, then
Affent, then Confide, then Love, and yet receive Faith
in a Moment: In that Moment, wherein their general
Confidence became particular, fo that each could fay,
My Lord, and my GOD."
One Paragraph more I will be at the Pains'to trn-
fcribe. You infinuate, that the Sacraments are
only requisite to the Well-being of a Vifible Chari :
Whereas the Church declares, that the due Admini-
ftration of them, is an Effential Property iberof. I
foppofe you hinted this to gratify your loving Dirciples
the Quakers."
This is flat and plain. Here is a Fa& pofitiely
averred ; and a Reafon alfo afigned for it.. Now, do
you take yourself to be Man of Candor ? I had almost
laid, of common Honefty ? My very Words in the
Place refer'd to, are, A Vifible Church is a Com-
pany of faithful People. This is the Effence of it.
And the Properti-s thereof are, That the pare Word of
"GOD be preached therein, and the Sacraments duly
". Before I take my leave, I cannot but recommend
to you that Advice ofa wife and good Man.

Be calm in arguing ; for Fiercenefs makes
Error a Fault, and Truth Dilcourtefy."

Whereas you intended o fuich Thing But thut up
the Whole with that lame and impotent Conclulion,
He leaves it to GOD, whether it.be bell they Ihould
fuffer Affi&iJtsr, or be delivered from them."
Had he tde that wearnloua Gift of GOD, that he
might do what any common Chrilhan might have done
without it? Why, any Perfon in the Congregation
might have prayed thus: Nay, could not pray other-
wife, if he had the ordinary Grace of GoD : Leaving
it to Gon, whether he should suffer Afflihtions ill, or
be delivered from them." Was it only in the Apollo-
licat Age,'that 1' the Spirit inlftrued Chrilians tbus
to pray ?" Cannot a Man pray thus, either for him-
feffor others, anlefs he have the smirc'loitrGift of
Prayer --So, according to your Lordlhip's Judgment,
To pray in fuch a manner, as in the Event to leave
the Continuance of our Suffering-, or our Deliverance
from them, with a due Submifliun, to the good Plea-
fure 6f Gon," is one of thofe extraordinary Opera-
lions of the Spirit," which none now pretend to but
modern Eathsfiafls !"
I Wb'eeh your Lordihip to consider. Can you coolly
maintain, that the praying with a due Submiifgn to
the Will of GOD," even in heavy Afflicion, is n i-
rari,.o*Gilft ? An extrcioaisaniry Op.ratic of the Holy
Gholl ? Ls tbi. pccular to the prsnmtise Times ? la it
what 4nae but Esll ia/?s now pretend to ? If not,

vileges of all Chritlians, to the End of the Worli.

here again it is fai4d That the Interpretation a'-

I cannot find St. Jerome to have writ one Line'spom

pofes, the whole Context from the 17th to the g5th
Vqrfe, to relate to all Chriftian in all Ages. How
tei 'can be faid to confirm the Interpretation af-

thlt e expo4nds 'the former Part of the z6th
Varfe, is describing the Ordinary Privilege of all Chri-

overthrow the Interpretation before alignedd" But
&i the Middle of the Verfe hebreaks off, and expounds
the latter Part, as describing one of the BMraculous
Y' Yet I mull do the Juftice to this Venerable Man to
&bferW, He'does not fappbfe that Miraculous Gift was
given, only that the Inipired might do what any Or-
dixary Chriftian might have done without it. (This
Interpretation even of the latter Part of the 'Verfe,
he does in no wife confirm) But that he might ask
in every Partcular Circumitance, the determinate'
Thing which it was the Will of Goo togive.
