TO THE READER.
The Good Old Way, &c.
A Brief Discovery of the entering in of Antichrists and false Prophets, with their Marks and Fruits who instituted Swearing, contrary to Christ's Command, and many other things which now are, and for a long time have been up∣held contrary to the Scripture, and practice of the Saints of old.
Here follows several instances of the Priests practices, for which they have no Scripture, but were instituted by the Pa∣pists and Bishops of Rome.
A few words followeth concerning Tythes, manifesting them no Gospel-maintenance, but since Christ and the Apostle dayes invented by the Papists.
Here followeth several Presidents of the Ancient Christians, some in the Apostles dayes, and some since, who had no Tythes from the People, who gave Testimony against them that did require them.
