All that be favingly-effetually called, and they onely, arepartakers of the fame faith in fubje&, object, kind , but not innumber and degree. Every beleever bath a proper, fingular, fincere, individuali faith , in kinde the fame,but innumber differing from the faithof others; as the faithof Peter was diffinó from the faithof the other Difciples.
