This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1873 edition. Excerpt: ...that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints," &c, &c, --chap. i. 7. This is an address to the Church generally, "To all that be in Rome," but specially to the members composing the spiritual Church, within the outward and visible Church. That St. Paul did not mean by his address to teach that the Roman christians were all--"beloved of God," and "saints," is evident from what he says towards the conclusion of his Epistle, --"Now I beseech you brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned, and avoid them; for they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple,"--chap. xvi. 17, 18. St. Paul writes in a similar way to the Corinthians, --"Unto the Church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints," &c, &c, 1 Cor. i. 2. But that he did not intend by these words to teach that all belonging to Christ's outward and visible Church at Corinth were--"sanctified in Christ Jesus,"--is also evident from other passages in this same Epistle--"But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat,"--chap. v. 11. And again, "For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper; For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another more
