A CHAIN OF THEOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES, Or, An orderly concatenation of Aphorismes and Exercitations, Wherein The chief heads of Christian Religion are asserted and improved.
APHORISME I. Mans blessedness consisteth not in a confluence of wordly ac∣commodations, which are all vanity of vanities; but in the fruition of God in Christ, who onely is the strength of our hearts & our portion for ever.
APHORISME III. Scripture-Oracles, supposing it sufficiently clear by the light of Nature, that there is a God, make a further discovery of what he is in his Essence, Sub∣sistence and Attributes.
APHORISME IV. Goodness and Greatness are At∣tributes so comprehensive, as to include a multitude of di∣vine perfections.
APHORISME V. The Goodness and Greatness of God are both abundantly ma∣nifested by his decrees of E∣lection and Preterition, toge∣ther with his works of Crea∣tion and Providence.
APHORISME VI. Providence extends it self, not onely to all created beings, and to all humane affairs, espe∣cially those that concern the Church: but even to the sins of Angels and men.
