THE NEW GOSPEL, NOT THE TRVE GOSPEL.
1. ASSERTION. The Law is a Rule of the flesh, and to walk after the Law, is to walk after the flesh, Rom. 8.12.
2. ASSERTION. The Law is not to be preached, to belee∣vers, by Gospell Ministers.
3. ASSERTION. If repentance and faith bee wrought only by the Gospell: then what doth the Law work in any mans conversion to God, or conformity to Christ.
4. ASSERTION. The law did once discover sin, it doth so no more; nor yet for direction: love herein transcends the law, as far as life, doth death.
5. ASSERTION. The new covenant hath no condition at all: faith is not the condition of the Gospels promises; but only a qualification in us.
6. ASSERTION. The Gospel was in mans nature before the fall.
7. ASSERTION. Faith is not to be tryed, by any fruits, or ef∣fects, but only by the perswasion it selfe.
8. ASSERTION. Faith is the only signe of salvation.
9. ASSERTION. The new Creature, is only faith in Christ.
10. ASSERTION. Regeneration is not to bee tryed by any o∣ther fruits, effects, or signes, but only by faith, wherin it consisteth.
11. ASSERTION. Sanctification is not by the spirit in our selves, but only in Christ; shewed in acts, and not in the habits of grace.
12. ASSERTION. Beleevers, when they fall into any sin, be it adultery or murther are not to mourne or grieve, (for that savours of the flesh) but still to rejoyce, because it is written, re∣joyce evermore; and that joy is the speciall means to bring them out of their sin.
13. ASSERTION. Carelesse Christians are the choisest belee∣vers, because they depend wholly upon Christ.
14. ASSERTION. To doubt of the favour of God, after sinne committed, is worse than the sin it selfe.
15. ASSERTION. It is as easie to beleeve remission of sins, as to make confession of them.
16. ASSERTION. Christ is involved in every proverb of Sa∣lomon.
17. ASSERTION. The 15. Psal. is only a description of Christ: and the beatitudes, Mat. 5. only belong to him; and to no man, that ever was or shall be, because all men are vanitie.
18. ASSERTION. The saying of Salomon; Rejoyce in the wife of thy youth, is not meant of a mans wife, but of Christ; because he can satisfie us at all times.
19. ASSERTION. It is too great presumption for any Mini∣ster, to undertake the exposition of any whole book in the Scriptures, because he cannot shew how Christ is involved in every part.
20. ASSERTION. Every true beleever (howsoever it seemes) doth alwayes grow in faith and love, and answerable fruits.
21. ASSERTION. No man can say, he doth love his brother, till he hath laid downe his life for him: neither can we our selves say, wee love the brethren, but we may say of others, that they doe. So expounding, 1. Iohn 3.14.
Concerning the five Cautions.
Of his Rule of faith.
