(i50) Obedience. 2. Our Rareof Juftification is continued on con- dition of the continuanceof Faith and Repentance , with fin. cere Obedience. ;. Our particular following fins have a par- ticular pardon, on.Condition, of the Continuance of the habits and renewing of the a&a of that faith and repentance , for knownobferved"fins. 4. Our full juftification by Sentence at Judgement , is on the fame condition as Glorification, viz,. On perfeverance in Faith, Repentance, Hope, Love and fincere Obedience. Prove now if you can that perfeverance is the Condition of our firft pardon. Prove if you can that final perfeverance is the Condition of our continuance in a juftified {fate till now. You fay, Juftification and peace cannot be ours till the conditionbe performed. But what condition ? of that gift ? or of another gift ? If of that, its granted : but its HI denyed that perfeve- rance is anyof the Condition of our firft pardon ? if of ano. ther gift; its no reafonof yourConfequence. If you fpeakof final Juftification and Salvation, I grant you all thus far, that you haveno full Right of pofl'effing them but onperfeverance; nor no Right at all, or certaintyof Salvation , but on fuppo- ficion ofperfeverance as neceffary to the pof ef;lion. And there- fore if you can prove that we have no certainty of perfeverance, I will yield that we have no certaintyof falvation. Treat.
