Cyp : de Unita : Ecclef : Thewhole Dotirine we contend for, is plainly, and clearly afferted , and bottomed on a text ofScripture, which in a frecial manner ( as we have tame ) we do infift upon; all that is loft by temptations in theChuich, was but Chafe ;the abides,and the rooted Tree is not can down. Thole fall away who indeed were never truebelievers in heart and union, what ever their prof//ion was Anéyet, we arc within the compafsof that fpan ofame,which our adverfaries,without proof,w,thout fhame, claime to be theirs. One Principal foundation ofout lottrine , is the bellowingof theholy Ghoft uponBelievers by jells ChuffWhere he is fo beftoweditheie fay we he abides: for he is given them for that end.eiz: to abide with them for ever. Now concerning himBahl tells us, that though in a fort, he may be faid tobe prefent with all, that are baptifed, yet he u never mix- ed With any that are not worthy, that is, he dwells not with any that ebtainr notfálvatidn.
