Seite 271 - Original Sin standeth not in the following of Adam, (as the Pelagians do vainly talk;) but it is the fault and corruption of the Nature of every man, that naturally is engendered of the offspring of Adam; whereby man is very far gone from original righteousness, and is of his own nature inclined to evil, so that the flesh lusteth always contrary to the spirit; and therefore in every person born into this world, it deserveth God's wrath and damnation.
Seite 275 - The condition of Man after the fall of Adam is such, that he cannot turn and prepare himself, by his own natural strength and good works, to faith, and calling upon God.

Seite 264 - And shall not he reckon with those who dare to run without his mission, pretending that they trust they have it, when perhaps they understand not the importance of it ; nay, and perhaps some laugh at it, as an enthusiastical question, who yet will go through with the office ? They come to Christ for the loaves ; they hope to live by the altar and the gospel, how little soever they serve at the one, or preach the other ; therefore they will say any thing that is necessary for qualifying them to this,...

Seite 369 - It would be as great rashness to fix a time for the breaking of the storm that hangs over our heads, as it is blindness and infatuation not to see it; not to be aware that it may break. And yet this infatuation has always attended all falling states.
Seite 277 - Chrilt by faith, and not for our own works or defervings : wherefore, that we are juftified by faith only, is a moil wholeaq 3 fome fome doftrine, and very full of comfort, as more largely J» eKprefled in the Homily of Juftification*.
Seite 296 - ... are shortsighted, have peculiar reasons to avoid it. Indeed almost all persons are accustomed from their early years to read in a different tone, from that in which they speak at other times : and we seldom correct it thoroughly.
