A short treatise describing the true church of Christ, and the evills of schisme, anabaptism and libertinism: Wherein is proved that society is the genus of a church, not Congregations. A national church under the New-Testament. The visible church is Gods temple. The infallible note of a true church. 1. Schismaticks defile the temple of God. 2. Usurpers of the ministery, temple-defilers. Learning is needfull for the discharge of the ministery. Toleration of all religions, contrary to Gods Word. No communion with the wicked in their sinne. Tyrants and persecutors are temple-defilers. Temple-defilers shall be surely punished. We must make triall of the spirits. Delivered in two sermons by Mr. Richard Byfield.
