Catholicks not uncharitable in say

ing, that none are fav’d out of
the Catholick Communion.


The Rule is not universal.

We are willing the People should examine
what we teach, and bring all our Doctrines to
the Law and to the Testimony ; that if they
be not according to this Rule, they may neither
believe them nor us. 'Tis only Things false
and adulterate, which shun the Light and fear
the Touchstone. We have that Security of
the Truth of our Religion, and of the Agree-
ableness of it to the Word of God, that honest
Confidence of the Goodness of our Cause, that
we do not forbid the People to read the best
Books our Adversaries can write against it.
Archbishop Tillotson, Sermon xxx. Fol. 359.

By H. E.
Behold, I am with you always, even to the End
of the World. S. Matth. xxviii. v 20.

Printed in the Year of our LORD, 1728.

HE only great, I might say, the only Business of a Christian in this Life, is Salvation. In this we are all equally and infinitely concern’d. And there cannot be a more signal

Instance of the prodigious Corruption of the present Age, than that an universal Concern of the highest Nature should be almost universally neglected. Religion, they say, is the Parson's Business; he maintains his Wife and his Family by it. But is Conscience the Parson's Bufiness too? If the People lose it, and Heaven with it, is it the Parson's Loss? Are they no Suffe

rers by it?

2. But God is infinitely good : and it is hop'd, ibat Men may live as they please in this World,
