That every man in the world had the spirit of Christ, grace, faith, etc. That Christ Jesus, as crucified, and dying sixteen hundred years ago, did not satisfy divine justice for the sins of the people.
That Christ's flesh and blood were within the saints. That the bodies of the good and bad that are buried in the church-yard, shall not arise again. That the resurrection is past with good men already. That that man Jesus, that was crucified between two thieves, on mount Calvary, in the land of Canaan, by Jerusalem, was not ascended above the starry heavens.
That He should not, even the same Jesus that died by the hands of the Jews, come again at the last day; and as man, judge all nations,' etc. Many more vile and abominable things were in those days fomented by them, by which I was driven to a more narrow search of the scriptures, and was through their light and testimony, not only enlightened, but greatly confirmed and comforted in the truth: And, as I said, the guilt of sin did help me much; for still as that would come upon me, the blood of Christ did take it off again, and again, and again; and that too sweetly, according to the scripture.
