IN WHICH SOME REMARKS UPON MR. FULSOME'S ANTINOMIAN CREED, PUBLISHED BY
THE REV. MR. BERRIDGE, ARE OCCASIONALLY INTRODUCED.
WITH AN APPENDIX,
UPON THE REMAINING DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CALVINISTS AND THE ANTI-CALVINISTS, WITH RESPECT TO OUR LORD'S DOCTRINE OF JUSTIFICATION BY WORDS, AND ST. JAMES' DOCTRINE OF JUSTIFI
CATION BY WORKS, AND NOT BY FAITH ONLY.
s As deceivers and yet true.”-" In meekness instructing them that oppose themselves,"
2 Cor. vi, 19; 2 Tim. ii, 25.
CONTENTS OF FIFTH CHECK.
Mr. Hill endeavours to screen his mistakes, by presenting the world with a
wrong view of the controversy.
SECTION II. His charge, that the practical religion recommended in the Checks “undermines
both law and Gospel,” is retorted, and the Mediator's law of liberty is defended.
SECTION III. Mr. Hill's faint attempt to show that his scheme differs from speculative Anti.
nomianism. His inconsistency in pleading for and against sin is illustrated by Judah's behaviour to Tamar.
At Mr. Hill's special request, Mr. Fulsome, (a gross Antinomian, first introduced
to the world by Mr. Berridge,) is brought upon the stage of controversy. Mr. Berridge attempts in vain to bind him with Calvinistic cords.
Mr. Hill cannot defend his doctrines of grace before the judicious, by producing
a list of the gross Antinomians that may be found in Mr. Wesley's societies.
SECTION VI. Mr. Hill, after passing over the arguments and scriptures of the Fourth Check,
attacks an illustration with the ninth article. His stroke is warded off, and that article turned against Calvinism.
His moral creed about faith and works is incompatible with his immoral system.
SECTION VIII. He raises a cloud of dust about a fair, though abridged quotation from Dr
Owen; and in his eagerness to charge Mr. Wesley and his second with disin. genuity, furnishes them with weapons against his own errors.
The "execrable Swiss slander” provés sterling English truth.
The sincerity of our Lord's intercession, even for Judas, is defended.
An answer to two capital charges of gross misrepresentation.
Some queries concerning Mr. Hill's forwardness to accuse his opponents of dis.
ingenuity, gross perversion, calumny, forgery, &c, and concerning his abrupt manner of quitting the field of controversy.
SECTION XIII. A perpetual noise about gross perversions, and base forgeries, becomes Mr. Hill
as little as any writer, considering his own inaccuracy with regard to quotations, some flagrant instances of which are produced out of his Finishing Strcke.
The author, after professing his brotherly love and respect for all pious Calvin.
ists, apologizes for his antagonist before the Anti-Calvinists; and,
SECTION XV. Takes his friendly leave of Mr. Hill, after promising him to publish a sermon on
Rom. xi, 5, 6, to recommend and guard the doctrine of free grace in a Scrip. tural manner.
In the Appendix, the author proves, by ten more arguments, the absurdity of
supposing, with the Solifidians, that believers are justified by works before men and angels, but not before God.
