Overview

2 Volumes or Parts in 1 title in modern format. — A unique method of teaching the foundational doctrines of Christian THEOLOGY and the Christian LIFE by the use of SEEMING contradictory statements, or paradoxes, from the Bible by a respected Puritan pastor of the 17th century. — The author summarizes or encapsulates, "in two or three lines, [that] which many pages, if I say not volumes, have left under a veil." — 543 statements in 89 pages which include sections on: the Trinity, God's Attributes, Election, Scripture, Creation, Angels, Man, Sin, Law, Grace, Ordinances, Resurrection, Heaven and Hell; an Appendix on the believer's Triumph over the Law, Sin, Wants and Troubles, the World and Triumph of Assurance. — A Scripture Index has been added to this digial edition to make it more useful. — Some representative excerpts regarding a Christian BELIEVER: "He believes that God's will and power are equal; and yet he believes that God can do what He never will do (Eph. 1:11; Rom. 11:31)." "He believes that the Scriptures were written by men subject to error; and yet he believes that there is no error in them (2 Tim. 3:16; Ps. 19:7-8)." "He eagerly pursues the works of righteousness; but doth most peremptorily reject the righteousness of works (1 Tim. 6:12; Phil. 3:9)." "He believes that in Hell sinners are ever dying; but shall never die." "He cries out, 'What must I do to be saved?'; and yet he never expects to be saved by doing." "He may be bound hand and foot; yet cannot be hindered from walking with God." "He believes that some have grace who cannot define it; and that some can define it who have it not." "He believes that every saint is careful to avoid sin; yet every one that is careful to avoid sin is not a saint." "He is one who lives to die, and dies to live; yea, he is dead while he lives, and lives when he dies." "He believes that God will withhold no good thing from them that walk uprightly (Ps. 84:11); and yet he believes that God doth withhold many things which are good from such, without any breach of promise." "He believes that a man may die for Christ; and yet he believes that such a man may not die in Christ." "He believes that a man may be damned though he be baptized, if he do not believe; and yet he believes that a man may be saved if he do believe, though he be not baptized."
