Page 277 - Election in Christ, is full of sweet, pleasant, and unspeakable comfort to godly persons, and such as feel in themselves the working of the Spirit of Christ...
Page 278 - THEY also are to be had accursed, that presume to say, that every man shall be saved by the law or sect which he professeth, so that he be diligent to frame his life according to that law, and the light of nature.

Page 245 - LORD ; repent you truly for your sins past; have a lively and stedfast faith in CHRIST our SAVIOUR ; amend your lives, and be in perfect charity with all men; so shall ye be meet partakers of those holy mysteries.

Page 275 - Greek, phronema sarkos, which some do expound the wisdom, some sensuality, some the affection, some the desire of the flesh, is not subject to the Law of God. And although there is no condemnation for them that believe and are baptized, yet the Apostle doth confess, that concupiscence and lust hath of itself the nature of sin.
