Rom. iii.

by thou wilt be guilty of his Perdition: For it is not fair to be too hafty in cafting out an Offender, but flow in receiving him when he returns; to be forward in cutting off, but unmerciful when he is forrowful, and ought to be healed. For of fuch as thefe fpeaks the Divine Scripture, Their Feet run Prov.i. 16, to Mischief, they are hafty to Ifa. lix. 7. fhed Blood; Destruction and Plal xxxv. Mifery are in their ways, and the way of Peace have they not 15. known, the Fear of God is not before their Eyes. Now, the way of Peace is our Saviour Jefus Chrift, who has taught us, faying. Forgive, Mar.xi 2 and ye shall be forgiven; give, Luk.vi.38 and it shall be given to you. That is, Give Remiffion of Sins, and your Offences shall be forgiven you. As alfo, He inftructed us by his Prayer to fay unto God, Forgive Matovi. 123 us our Debts, as we forgive our Debtors. If therefore you do not forgive Offenders, how can you expect the Remifὑμῖν· τετέςι, δίδοτε fion of your own Sius? Do

not you rather bind your ἄφεσιν ἁμαρτιῶν, è felves fafter, by pretending ἀφεθήσεται ὑμῖν τὰ in your Prayers to forgive, when you really do not forgive? Will you not be confronted with your ownwords, when you fay you forgive,and do not forgive? For know ye, that he who cafts out one who has not behav'd himfelf wickedly, or who will not receive him that returns, is a Murtherer of his Brother,and fheds his Blood, as Cain did that of his Gen.iv.10 Brother Abel; and his Blood cries to God, and will be requir'd. For a righteous Man unjuftly flain by any one, will be in Reft with God for ever. The fame is the Cafe of him who without Caufe is feparated by his Bilhop. He who has caft him out as a peftilent Fellow, when he was innocent, is more furious than a Murderer. Such an one has no regard to the Mercy of God, nor is mindful of his Goodnets to thofethat are penitent; nor keeping in his Eye the Examples of thofe,

to the Cafes of those who want Words of Severity or of Confolation Befides, 'tis reasonable that in thy Administration of Justice thou fhouldeft follow the Will of God; and as God deals with Sinners, and with thofe who return, that thou shouldeft act accordingly in thy Judging.
