To the Right Worshipful Sir T. R. Knight.
THE Mischief of IMPOSITIONS: OR; A SOVERAIGN ANTIDOTE Against a Late Discourse, CALLED, The Mischief of SEPARATION.
SECT. I. The Author's Introductory Discourse considered; Designs for Peace and Union plausible; as ordinarily managed, unsuccess∣ful.
SECT. II. The Text propounded. The Doctor's manner of raising his Doctrines, considered; his Suppositions, Positions, modestly ex∣amined; and proved vain in themselves, and useless to his present purpose.
SECT. III. The Dissenters Plea from Rom. 14. and whether the Doctor hath spoken Reason to invalidate their Reasonings from hence?
SECT. IV. Of the Obligation that lies upon Christians to walk by the same Rule. The Doctor's two questions propounded. The former considered; but no answer to it given by him. Several preli∣minaries examined.
SECT. V. The state of the present Controversie between the disagreeing Parties, (as laid down by the Doctor) what Concessions some Dissenters make, and what use the Doctor makes of them?
SECT. VI. The Grounds of the present Separation, assigned by the Doctor, Examined and Cleared.
SECT. VII. The principle assigned to some others of the Dissenters, consi∣dered. The Arguments from the Papers of Accommodation between a Sub Committee of the Assembly, and their Brethren of the Congregational persuasion, modestly examined.
SECT. VIII. Philip. 3.15. Considered. How the Doctor rids himself of the danger of the Context. His second Question propounded, and answered like the former, that is, not at all: His Discourse about Conscience examined.
SECTION IX. A consideration of those Assertions of the Doctor. If Communi∣on with the Church be lawful it will in time be judged a duty. And, If occasional Communion, be lawful, its hard to understand that constant Communion should not be a duty.
SECTION X. Of terms of Communion required by the Church, whether upon the same Reason that some of them are Imposed, the Church may not also impose some Ʋse of Images, Circumcision, and the Paschal Lamb?
SECTION. XI. The Application. And first, To those in Communion with the Church.
SECT. XII. The Doctors Considerations considered.
SECT. XIII. The Doctors Pacquet of Advices, Advised upon; with some humble Advice to himself and others. The Conclusion.
The Conclusion.
