TITLE: The Axe Laid To The Root Of The Old Corrupt Tree; And The Spirit Of Deceit Struck At In Its Nature. From Whence All The Error From The Life, Among Both Papists And Protestants, Hath Arisen, And By Which It Is Nourished And Fed At This Day. In A Distinction Between The Faith Which Is Of Man, And The Faith Which Is Of God. And In Some Assertions Concerning True Faith; Its Nature, Rise, &C. Its Receiving Of Christ, And Its Abiding And Growing In His Living Virtue. With A Warning Concerning Adding To And Diminishing From The Scripture In General, And The Prophecies Of The Revelations In Particular. Discovering What It Is, And The Great Danger Of It; With The Only Way Of Preservation From It. Whereto Is Added, A Short Touch About The Use Of Means. As Also A Brief History Concerning The State Of The Church Since The Days Of The Apostles. With An Exhortation To The Present Age. By The Movings Of The Life, In A Friend To The Living Truth Of The Most High God; But An Utter Enemy To The Spirit Of Error And Blasphemy, Where-Ever It Is Found, As Well In The Strictest Of The Protestants, As Among The Grossest Of The Papists.
