such as profess Christ and Christ's peace. All christians are to mind God's and Christ's teaching, who teach christians to love one another, yea, enemies; and persuade kings and princes to give liberty to all tender consciences in matters of religion and worship, they living peaceably under every government: so that for the time to come there may be no more imprisonment and persecution among christians for tender consciences about matters of faith, worship, and religion, that the Jews, Turks, Tartars, and Heathens may not see how christians are persecuting one another for religion. Seeing from Christ and the apostles christians have no such command, but, on the contrary, to love one another; and knowing that Christ said to such as would have been plucking up tares, “Let the tares and the wheat grow together till the harvest (which is the end of the world) lest they plucked up the wheat;” and at the end of the world Christ would send forth his angels, and they should sever the wheat from the tares. So Christ tells you, it is the angels' work at the end of the world, and not men's work before the harvest at the end of the world. Hath not all this persecution, banishing, imprisoning, and putting to death concerning religion, been the pretence of plucking up tares? and hath not all this been before the harvest, before the end of the world? have not all these been actors against the express command of Christ, the King of heaven? all kings and rulers, especially those that call themselves christians, should obey their Lord and Saviour's command; “Let the tares and the wheat grow together till the harvest;” and the harvest is the end of the world. Also, Christ told some of his disciples, that would have had “fire to come down from heaven, to destroy such as would not receive him (in their zeal) that they did not know what spirit they were of:” and rebuked them, saying, “He came not to destroy men's lives, but to save them.” Have all such as have destroyed men's lives concerning religion, and the worship of God, known what spirit they have been of 1 have they not done that they should not do? that which Christ forbade, who saith, “Lest ye should pluck up the wheat with the tares,” and saith, “It is the angels' work at the end of the world !” hath not God showed unto man what is good, and his duty, to “love mercy, to do justly, and to walk humbly with his God?” which man is to mind. “And the apostle exhorts christians to “follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” Heb. xii. 14. Why should christians war and strive one with another, seeing they all own in words one King, and Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus, whose command is, that they should “love one another;” which is a mark that they shall be known by, to be Christ's disciples, as I said before. And Christ, who is the King of kings, and Lord of lords, saith, “As I have loved
you, so love one another." John xv. 12. and John xiii. And the apostle saith, “christians ought to be patient towards all men.” 1 Thess. v. 14. “From him who is a lover of truth, righteousness, and peace, and desires your temporal and eternal good; and that in the wisdom of God, that is pure, gentle, and peaceable from above, you may be ordered, and order all things God hath committed to you to his glory, and stop those things among christians, so far as you have power, which dishonour God, Christ and christianity G.
