Irenicum, to the lovers of truth and peace heart-divisions opened in the causes and evils of them : with cautions that we may not be hurt by them, and endeavours to heal them
Burroughs, Jeremiah, 1599-1646.

2. Faith.

1. THis unites us to Christ and God, and in them to one another.

2. Faith commits all causes, all feares, injures to God.

3. Faith layes hold upon, and improves those gracious promi∣ses that God hath made to his Churches for union. Faith sues out the Bond.

4. Faith is able to descry the issue of troubles and afflictions; Though Sense sayes, It will not be, Reason, It cannot be, yet Faith gets above, and sayes, It shall be, I descry land: and thus quiets all in the soule; all being quiet there, the turbulent moti∣ons that are in our spirits one towards another are soon quieted.
