Description

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.

What can better become us than to judge so of the waies that God hath pitched upon, and wherein we have God's own choice to precede and be a guide to our judgment? I shall conclude this article with Its quotation, p. 44. out of Dr. Manton's Comment on James i. 13. p. 101, as if that learned divine had affirmed the disputed predetermination by those words.
