Herefy doth not confifl in a confèquential denying of Tome fundamental Truth, but in a direct denial thereof. Now if that Truth that is confe- quentially denied, be profeffedly owned and maintained, that Pei fon, though he be guilty of Error in what he de- nies, is not a Heretick thereby.

Yet many of the Church of the 7c-vs that did believe Jefus Chrift was come, were zea- lous of all there, .f1Ets xxi. 21. But never dealt with as Hereticks; nor was there ever fuch advice given by Paul, or any other Apotlle. We muff then have a care we do iv-2c go about to make Men Hereticks by confequence. 3/y.

Wherefore put away from among you that wicked Perji n. C Fi A P. IY.
