AARON'S ROD BLOSSOMING;

;

OR,

THE DIVINE ORDINANCE

OF

CHURCH GOVERNMENT VINDICATED;

SO AS THE PRESENT ERASTIAN CONTROVERSY CONCERNING

THE DISTINCTION OF CIVIL AND ECCLESIASTICAL GOVERNMENT, EXCOMMUNICATION AND SUSPENSION,
IS FULLY DEBATED AND DISCUSSED, FROM THE HOLY SCRIPTURE, FROM THE JEWISH AND
CHRISTIAN ANTIQUITIES, FROM THE CONSENT OF LATER WRITERS, FROM

THE TRUE NATURE AND RIGHTS OF MAGISTRACY,

AND

FROM THE GROUNDLESSNESS OF THE CHIEF OBJECTIONS MADE AGAINST THE PRESBYTERIAL

GOVERNMENT, IN POINT OF A DOMINEERING ARBITRARY UNIJMITED POWER.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder.-I84. ix. 6.

Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour.—1 Tim. v. 17.
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets, for God is not the author of confusion but of peace.-1 Cor. xiv. 32, 33.
Ne forte aut indisciplinata patientia foveat iniquitatem, aut impatiens disciplina dissipet unitatem.--Augut. lib. contra Donat. post collat. cap. 4.
