A SOLIFIDIAN is one who maintains that we are completely and eternally saved [folâ fide] by fole faith by faith alone; and who does it in fo unscrip, tural a manner as to make good works unnecessary to eternal salvation; representing the law of Christ as a mere rule of life; and calling legalists, pharisees, or heretics, all those who consider that law as a rule of Judgment.


HE Author of the Chucks has promised to his

piece, entitled, More Work for Mr. Wesley. His reaton for postponing the finishing of that part of his Logica Genevenfis, was the importance of the Equal Check, which closes the controversy with Mr. Hill. He saw lite so uncertain, that, of two things which he was obliged to do, he thought it his duty to set about that which appeared to him the more useful. He considered also, that it was proper to have quite done with Mr. Hill, before he faced so able a writer a's Mr. Toplady. And he hoped, that to lay before the judicious a complete system of truth, which, like the sun, recommends itself by its own lustre, was perhaps the best method to prove that error, which shines only as a meteor, is nothing but a mock-lun: However he fully designs to perform his engagement in a short time, if his life is fpared.
