SCRIPTURE-SCALES

SSC
To weigh the Gold of Gospel Truth-
To balance a multitude of opposite Scriptures-
To prove the gospel-Marriage of Free Grace and Free-
Will, and restore primitive Harmony to the

Gospel of the day.

By a Lover of the whole Truth as it is in JESUS.

How is the most fine gold changed!-" Take heed that ye be

not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, '! ani Chrisť DOCTRINAL : I am Christ' MORAL : But To the law and to the testimony: if they speak 110t according to this word, it is because there is no light in them? (or at lacije because) their wine is mixed with water, and their silver is' (partly) become dross.”

BIBLE.

“ Si non est Dei gratia, quomodo falvat mundum? Si non eft

liberum arbitrium, quomodo judicat mundum?"

"THE Reconciler invites the contendirig Parties to end the

Controversy; and in order to this, he befeeches them not to involve the question in clouds of evasive cavils, or personal reflections : but 10 come to the point, and break, if they can, either the one or the other of bis ScriptureScales ; and, if they cannot, to admit them both, an?, by that means, to give glory to God and the Truth, and be reconciled to all the Gospel, and to one another.

greatly by the opposite mistakes of the mere So. lifidians, and of the mere Moralists; we embrace the truths and reject the errors, which are maintained by 'these contrary parties. For, by equally admitting the doarines of grace, and the doctrines of juflice; -- by equal. ly contending for faith and for morality', we adopt

what is truly excellent in each system ; we reconcile Zelotes and Hoeflus; we bear our testimony againit their contentious partiality ; and, to the best of our knowledge, we maintain the whole truth as 'it is in Jefus. If we are mistaken, we shall be thankful to those who will let us right. Plain fcriptures, close arguments, and friendly expoftulations, are the weapons we chufe. We humbly hope, that the uoprejudiced reader will find no other in these pages: and to engage our opponents to use such orly, we presenc to them the following Petition.
