Chapter IIII.-Objections against the necessity of Ordination answered.
Chapter V.-Whether these Prophets and prophesyings in the Primitive Church I Cor. 14. and I Cor. 12.18. Eph. 4.11. were extraordinary, and so not to continue: Or whether they are Presidents for the preaching and prophesying of such as are neither ordained Ministers, nor Probationers for the Ministry.
Chapter XI.-Of Stability and firmnesse in the Truth.
Chapter XIII.-Whether Conscionable Christians and such as love the power and practice of piety, can without defileing their own conscience, or without a destructive wounding of the power of godlinesse, imbrace and hold the principles of these who call themselves the godly partie? Or whether they ought not rather to avoid these who do now Pharisaically and Donatistically appropriat to themselves the name of the Godly partie, as being indeed such, who under the pretence of zeall for the power of godlines, hold diverse ungodly principles.
Chapter XIV.-Another most usefull Case of Conscience discussed and resolved, concerning associations and confederacies with Idolaters, Infidels, Hereticks, or any other known enemies of truth and godlinesse.
Chapter XVII.-Of Infant-baptisme.
Chapter XX.-That necessary consequences from the written word of God do sufficiently and strongly prove the consequent or conclusion, if Hereticall, to be a certain divine Truth which ought to be believed; and if practicall, to be a necessary dutie which we are obliged unto jure divino.
Chapter XXI.-Of an assurance of an interest in Christ by the marks or fruits of sanctification, and namely by love to the Brethren. Also how this agreeth with, or differeth from assurance by the Testimony of the spirit? and whether there can be any wel grounded assurance without marks of grace.
