EVANGELICAL DOCTRINES STATED AND DEFENDED:
RIGHT REV. THE LORD BISHOP OF WINCHESTER'S
"REFUTATION OF CALVINISM.'
“ Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope " that is in you, with meekness and fear.”—1 Pet. iii. 15.
* Take special care, before you aim your shafts at Calvinism, that you know what is • Calvinism, and what is not : that in that mass of doctrine, which it is of late become the fashion to abuse under the name of Calvinism, you can distinguish with certainty, between that part which is nothing better than Calvinism, and that which belongs to our common Christianity, and the faith of the Reformed Churches.'-Bp. Horsley. • Accusatio crimen desiderat, rem ut definiat, hominem ut notet, argumento probet, teste confirmet.'--Cicero pro Cælio.
