IIII.
The third Argument is taken from the re∣moval of the Causes, whereas Faith a∣lone Iustifieth: which causes are of Bellarmine referred to three heades, cap. 16.
The first is the authority of the word, wher∣vnto the Adversary answereth; That it is no where taught in the scrip∣ture, That wee are iustified by faith onely.
The second head is the will of God, who will haue vs iustified with the alone condition of faith. The Adversary answereth; that it contradicteth the Scripture, which layeth downe also the condition of Repentance.
The third is the nature of faith, which alone hath that property, that it appre∣hendeth Iustification. The Adversary answereth, that Faith doth not pro∣perly apprehend.
The fourth Argument, is from the maner of Iustifying: for we affirme that faith Iustifieth not by the maner of cause, wor∣thinesse, or merite, but by relation onely: which Bellarmine denyeth, and proveth by three arguments, that faith iustifieth by the manner of merite, and cause, cap. 13.
