To his Worthy Friend, Mr. Samuel Tofte, entrusted with the publication of the following Work; which the Author liv'd to Print, but not to Publish.
To the Reader.
A Letter to his friend.
The Roman Catholick's first Treatise. How in these times in which there be so many Re∣ligious, the true Religion may certainly be found out.
The Proof of the Title.
The Conclusion, Shewing the Reply to my Papers to have been fully answered in the former Discourse.
Now to your Eight Answers in Order.
So much for the Preface. After the Preface you come to the Proof of the Title. You mean the Title of this Paper, which surely needs not to be proved, because it is not delivered by way of Affirmation, but of Disquisition.
To the Reader. How in these times in which there be so many Re∣ligions, the true Religion may certainly be found out.
The first CHAPTER. The Answer to my Preface Confuted.
The Second CHAPTER. The necessitie of a Judge in all Controversies to whom all are bound to submit.
The third CHAPTER. That seeing Scripture alone doth not decide all things necessary to salvation, there must be a living Judge.
The Fourth CHAPTER. The Church is this Judge. Her Authoritie Infallible.
The fifth Chapter. The Church which is our Judge, and Infallible, is the Roman Church.
An Answer to your last Paper.
The Answer to the second Chapter. No necessity of a Judge in all Controversies to whom all should be bound simply to sub∣mit their assent.
CHAP. III Shewing that since Scripture alone doth sufficiently propose all things necessary to salvation, there is no need of a living Judge infallible.
CHAP. IV. The Church is not an infallible Iudge. The first Number is a Preface depending upon hopes of the former discourse: But to this we say nothing, save only that they shall never be rewarded for such hope, unless they can prove their word to be the Word of God.
CHAP. V. No Church is our Iudge infallible, then not the Roman.
Errata, which the judicious and can did Reader is desired to observe.
