A Standard of Righteousnesse lifted up to the Nations, and an En∣signe of Peace unto the People.
¶ A few words concerning man in his fallen de∣generated estate from God, in which he hath not power to keep the Commands of God nor his Law, nor to do any work acco∣ptable to him; but all his righteousness is as filthy raggs, or as a menstruous garment.
Here followeth an Invitation of Love to all peo∣ple, to come unto the Fountain of Fountain of Living Wa∣ters, which is now open, that they may drink and be satisfied, and never thrist more.
A Testimony concerning the spiritual man, who is begotten of God, through the spirit, by the Immortal Word of God, which liveth and abi∣deth for ever, and hath received the spirit of Adoption, whereby he cries Abba Father.
Here is the way which leadeth to the King∣dome of God in short, held forth to all who are willing to enter therein.
The difference between the true Gospel and the false, truly stated and clearly demonstrated; that all people may see and read which Gospel they have received and obeyed this many years, whether the true Gospel, or the false.
Here followeth a few Queries put to Leonard Letchford, either to be answered by plain Scripture, according as I have answered his before cited, or else to acknowledge that I have struck the Devil dumb in his minister at Hurst at last, though I have long suffered him to boast himself as though he were a Minister of Christ, even till his fruits are grown so foul and odious that every one is ready to bring in their verdict to the contrary.
