To the Right Reverend Father in God, ALEXANDER, Lord Bishop of SARƲM, My very much Honoured Lord and Patron.
Christ Crucified: OR, The Doctrine of the Gospel ASSERTED, Against Pelagian and Socinian Errors, Revived under the Notion OF NEW LIGHTS.
CHAP. 1. The Soul of Man in its first Creation, was perfectly free from Ignorance and Error. Errors the Fruit of the Fall of our first Parents. The per∣nicious Nature of Errors in matters of Religion.
CHAP. II. A right understanding of the Holy Scriptures is our best security a∣gainst Errors. We need not sail to Rome to fetch it thence. Two ex∣treams in the Interpreting of Scri∣pture, both which do dangerously tend to induce us to Error.
CHAP. III. As in vitious Courses, so also in erro∣nious Opinions men go from bad to worse. The experience of our age hath sadly confirmed this. The sad pass that many are come to at this day, in matters of Religion.
CHAP. IV. An Introduction to the Doctrine of Christ our Mediator, shewing how far the Light of Nature will lead us toward Eternal Happiness, and wherein it comes short. The vari∣ous acceptions of the Words, Christ, and Mediator, in the Scriptures o∣pened, for preventing Erronious constructions of those places of Scriptures.
CHAP. V. The holy Scriptures being owned (at least in outward profession) by men of all professions that lay claim to the common name of Christianity; we may therefore take it for grant∣ed, that Arguments drawn from them, should put an end to all strife amongst us. The design and method of the four following Chapters pro∣posed.
CHAP. VI. The first Proposition confirmed in its two Branches, viz. First, That God did promise to the Fathers of the Old Testament, to send his Son in∣to the World, to take our Nature upon him. Secondly, That he pro∣mised that in the Ʋnion of these two Natures, he should perform all those Offices which were necessary in order to our Redemption and Salvation.
CHAP. VII. The second Proposition confirmed by nine Arguments, viz. That the time which was appointed by God for the accomplishing of these Promises and Prophesies, and for the sending of the Son of God into the world in our Nature, is long since expired; so that we are certainly to believe that our Saviour is already come in the flesh.
CHAP. VIII. The third Proposition, viz. That we have full and sufficient Grounds to believe, that the same Jesus which is held forth unto us in the New Testa∣ment, and in whom we and all the Churches of God in all Ages have believed, is that very Person who was promised to the Fathers to come as the Messiah, or Saviour of the World; Confirmed by the Mira∣cles which he wrought to confirm this Truth, and by the fulfilling of all Prophesies in him.
CHAP. IX. The fourth Proposition confirmed, viz. That the Apostles and Evangelists of the New Testament do hold forth unto us such a Christ as was really, and in a proper sense God and Man hypostatically united in one Person: And who did in a real and proper sense satisfie Gods justice for our sins, and purchase eternal Sal∣vation for us by his Merits.
CHAP. X. From the foregoing Discourses, two Cautions are deduced. First, That we take heed of laying any other Foundation, then that which is laid, viz. Jesus Christ: Three sorts of Persons that build beside this Foun∣dation. Secondly, That we take heed what we build upon this Foun∣dation.
CHAP. XI. A Seasonable and necessary Admo∣nition to those that stand fast in the Faith, delivered in five Branches.
CHAP. XII. Five seasonable and profitable Ad∣monitions, commended to the Con∣sciences of them that are either wavering, or already seduced to the embracing of Errors.

THE NATURE and DANGER OF A Misguided Conscience.
