DISCERNING TRUE DOCTRINE


How may we know that any doctrine is the true grace of God?

I answer:

- If it humbles the creature and excludes all boasting.

- If it provides for the honor of God’s holy law and justice.

- If it is a solid and sure ground of strong consolation to the believer.

- If it is a doctrine according to holiness.


By John Brine, 1750
