THE CIVIL MAGISTRATE'S POWER IN MATTER'S OF RELIGION
THOMAS COBBETT

The Civil Magistrate’s Power was written by Thomas Cobbett originally in 1653. Cobbett deals with the civil magistrate’s power based upon the bounds and grounds of Scripture. He lays down the scriptural ordination as well as the scriptural limitation of government. Again he demonstrates the limitation of their authority based upon the fact that they are a separate jurisdiction from the church. He then states that it the Lord who is the head of the Church and the civil magistrate does not have the power, right, or authority to usurp His rule.



TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Method and Scope of the Ensuing Discourse Concerning the Civil Magistrate’s Power in Matters of Religion

By Way of Introduction

1. The example of our Head Jesus Christ is opened and applied in many pious and seasonable observations

2. Objections answered

The Thesis and Position propounded to be cleared is this, That Corruptions in Religion outwardly breaking forth and expressed, may, yea and must be restrained and punished, by such as are thereunto called. The Author first propoundeth:

1. Distinctions

2. Some Conclusions about it are laid down

a. Negatively, what may not be done this way

b. Positively, what may and must

3. The main Assertion is explained and proved by Seven Reasons grounded upon Scriptures

Five Corollaries or Instructions drawn from the Premises

1. By way of Refutation and Answer to sundry Objections, tending to undermine the Coercive Power of the Civil Magistrate in matters of Religion

2. The instruction chargeth Rulers with the Duty of Endeavoring the Exact knowledge of God’s law, word, and rules

3. The instruction or inference from the premises, that then the Highest Civil Authority are to make Coercive Laws about matters of Religion

Touching this particular, the Author distinguisheth

1. Of Civil Magistrates

2. Of Kingdoms or Commonwealths, in which they rule

3. Of Legislative power in matters of Religion

4. Of Laws about Religion

Conclusions are laid down about their weighty matter

1. Negatively, where it is proved that human laws, formally and as such, cannot bind the conscience

2. Positively

Positive Conclusions about this Nomothetic power are four

1. That Political Laws, properly such, may be made about matters of Religion

2. This Conclusion is confirmed by seven Reasons

3. Objections against this Conclusion are answered

4. Conclusion, that in doubtful matters, Ecclesiastical Assemblies are to be called, whose Counsels unto the Magistrate are Ecclesiastically Authoritative

5. Conclusion, Civil Magistrates are to call upon Ministers to expound the whole Counsel of God

6. Conclusion, Civil Authority must establish their Laws with the consent of their people or their representatives

7. A fourth Instruction from the Premises, Then are the Civil Authority in their Political way to Judge, which things acted by the outward man in cases of Religion are contrary to the word, and which are not

The further clearing of this from all gainsayers

1. Some Distinctions are laid down

2. The Conclusion is stated and cautioned

3. Five Reasons for proof thereof and the Objections against them answered

4. The last Instruction from the premises – Then are not persons to be left to the liberty of their own Judgments or consciences

For the better cleaning of this weighty Conclusion so many ways opposed now adays

1. Some Distinctions about it are propounded, and Romans 14:3

2. The Conclusion is stated against a set fixed Toleration, and proved by 10 Reasons from Scripture, all which are vindicated from the several Objections against them.

THREE SPRINKLE TITLES: Letters & Sketches from the New Hebrides; God Sovereign & Man Free; and Life & Writings of John Gill
Maggie Patin; N.L. Rice; John Rippon

THREE UNRELATED TITLES FROM SPRINKLE PUBLICATIONS

(1) LETTERS & SKETCHES FROM THE NEW HEBRIDES by Maggie Paton ((wife of John Paton, pioneer missionary of renown))

The story of Dr. John Gibson Paton (1824-1907), Scottish Presbyterian missionary to the South Pacific, is well-known. Paton settled on the island of Aniwa (1866-1881) with his second wife, Margaret (Maggie) Whitecross Paton. By the end of the Patons’ tenure, most of the Aniwan natives were professing Christianity.

Paton’s brother James edited his autobiography. James also obtained permission from Maggie Paton to publish the letters contained in this volume that pieces together the moving history of the Patons’ labors over a twenty-five years span (1865-1889)

The letters in this book throb with heartfelt convictions. They provide remarkably realist insights into life on the mission field from the perspective of a God-fearing missionary’s wife who was willing to follow her husband’s call in adverse and life-threatening circumstances.

This book will move you; at times you will weep, at other times, smile. You will be stirred by the challenge of working in an isolated mission situation with only rare connection to the outside world.



(2) GOD SOVEREIGN & MAN FREE; or The Doctrine of Divine Foreordination and Man's Free Agency by N.L. Rice

One reviewer says the following about this outstanding book: "I'm not sure why this book is not more well known, than it is(I've never seen it quoted in other books on the subject and this is the only review on amazon for now).It is truly an outstanding work on Predestination Books that reveal who the God of the Bible is and how he has worked and continues to govern all that he has made, are game changers, and this is that kind of book."



(3) THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF JOHN GILL by John Rippon

The late Dr. John Gill was, in various respects, so distinguished an individual, whether we have regard to his talents, his industry in improving them, the eminence to which he attained in oriental and classical literature, of his Christian character, that one may be justly be surprised so little is generally know of his life and labors. Were we to have recourse to any of our biographical dictionaries for information on the subject, we should find the article dismissed in about twenty lines, giving us a meager outline of the place of his birth, his family, education, and the various publications with which he enriched the literature of his country, while the most interesting and instructive parts of his biography are wholly unnoticed.

The reason of this is, that the only full and authentic account of this great and learned man, is that which was complied by the late Dr. John Rippon, his successor in the work of the ministry, and prefixed to Dr. Gill's "Exposition of the Bible", in nine volumes, quarto- of course accessible only to those who happen to be in possession of that laborious undertaking, the number of whom must be comparatively few. It is presumed that a re-publication of the former, in a detached form, and at a moderate price, can scarcely fail of meeting with a favorable acceptance at the hands of the religious community, more especially, as tending to bring this great and learned man more prominently before the public, and so doing his character that justice which hitherto it has not received.

This book has been printed verbatim from the above mentioned memoir, which will account for an occasional reference to the Commentary which will be observed in the perusal.

MEDITATIONS UPON CERTAIN PSALMS: The First Psalm, The Penitential Psalms, Seven Consolatory Psalms
Sir Richard Baker

In 'Commenting and Commentaries" Spurgeon gives Baker the highest praise when he says: "His 'Meditations and Disquisitions' are altogether marrow and fat-ness. We have often tried to quote from him and have found ourselves so embarrassed with riches that we have been inclined to copy the whole book. Why it has not been reprinted, and made to pass through fifty editions, we cannot tell."

This remarkable and extremely rare volume examines the following Psalms -

THEOLOGY FOR THE PEOPLE or Biblical Doctrine, Plainly Stated
William S. Plumer

"The knowledge of God possessed by angels and by the spirits of just men made perfect in heaven, is very different in degree from that possessed by even good and able men on earth. Here all men are liable to err, and all men do err. No man on this earth is without some wrong view, or some ignorance, which mars his knowledge. This is no reason for sloth or discouragement; but is a good reason why we should be humble and careful and teachable, and pray for divine light and guidance. It is far different in heaven. There they do always hold the face of God. Matthew 18:10. They do not hope for anything, for they already possess all good. Romans 8:24. 'Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known.' 1 Corinthians 13:12. Knowledge without any mixture of error belongs only to the heavenly state. And yet a great part of the knowledge which the inhabitants of heaven have - concerns the very things which good men are learning in this world. Those above know perfectly what we know in parcels only." - Wm. Plumer

THE BELIEVER'S DAILY REMEBRANCER: Pastor's Morning and Evening Visit, 2 Volumes
JAMES SMITH (1802-1862)

This is The Believer's Daily Remembrancer: Pastor's Morning Visit & The Believer's Daily Remembrancer: Pastor's Evening Visit

JAMES SMITH served as Pastor of NEW PARK STREET CHAPEL in London from 1841-1850 where he was succeeded by Charles H. Spurgeon. At the dedication service of THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE in 1861 Spurgeon had various preachers expound The Doctrines of Grace, and JAMES SMITH was asked to preach on EFFECTUAL CALLING. This address is included in Volume One as a Bonus.

As you read these pages you will find James Smith to have a heart warmly affectionate to the person and work of Christ and tenderly pastoral towards sinners. Many selections are a meditation on an excerpt from a selected text which is thematically developed with an aim towards experiential religion. His style is lucid and succinct, delivering to the mind and affections biblically accurate, theologically pregnant, and concisely memorable statements. As you read Mr. Smith you will find your love for Christ growing, and experience a greater sense of the Christian’s peace with God through Jesus Christ.

These titles are both a daily devotional which provides a page length meditation for every day of the year.

Sample

January 3 – One Mediator between God and Man (1 Tim. 2:5)

"There is but one Mediator; man has invented more, but God has appointed, revealed, and accepted but one. One is sufficient. Jesus alone is the Mediator of reconciliation. His atonement is infinite in its value and efficacy; it honored the law, satisfied justice, and glorified all the perfections of God. It perfected for ever them that are sanctified. It is a sacrifice of a sweet smelling savor unto God. On the ground of the one sacrifice of Jesus, sinners are received, pardoned, and accepted of God. Let nothing else engage your attention when seeking acceptance with God, go through Jesus, through Jesus only: however vile, however sinful you may be, there is reconciliation to God through the death of his Son. There is but one Mediator of intercession. One is sufficient. Jesus ever lives to make intercession. The Father always hears him. We need no one to dispose his mind to pity, listen to, or plead for us; his nature is love, it is his office and work to save, and he delights in his work. Therefore he is able to save them to the uttermost, who come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."

THE CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATED
WILLIAM JAY

This title is a series of 13 Lectures delivered by William Jay at Argyle Chapel.

The design of this Series of Lectures was – to diversify a little the ordinary course of ministerial instruction – to excite and secure attention by a degree of allowable novelty and curiosity – and to bring together various things pertaining to the same subject; so that they might aid each other in illustration and improvement, by their arrangement and union.

The work contains many of the Author’s views on important subjects after considerable experience and observation.



Table of Contents:

The Christian, in Christ (2 Cor. 12:2)

The Christian, in the Closet (Matt. 6:6)

The Christian, in the Family (2 Sam. 6:20)

The Christian, in the Church (1 Tim. 3:15)

The Christian, in the World (John 27:11)

The Christian, in Prosperity (Jer. 22:21)

The Christian, in Adversity (Eccles. 7:14)

The Christian, in His Spiritual Sorrows (Psalm 137:2)

The Christian, in His Spiritual Joys (Nehemiah 8:10)

The Christian, in Death (Psalm 37:37)

The Christian, in the Grave (Job 17:13)

The Christian, in Heaven (2 Tim. 1:10)

The Result (Acts 26)

The great strength and value of all sermons by William Jay is their faithfulness to the passage he is examining. He always stuck closely to the text and sought to open and apply God's Word to God's People in every possible situation they might face in a fallen world. There is no cause to wonder why Spurgeon would say, "O FOR MORE JAYS!" Every Pastor should read Jay to learn how to preach the Word. Every hard of a household should read Jay to learn how to lead the family in a God-honoring way. Every Christian should read Jay to face the promises and demands of the Gospel for ones own soul.

EVERYONE SHOULD READ WILLIAM JAY FOR HE REMINDS US OF OUR WEAKNESS AND OF GOD'S INFINITE POWER AND GRACE!!



Rev. William Jay (1769–1853) was an English nonconformist divine who preached for sixty years at Argyle Chapel in Bath. He was an eminent English Congregationalist minister of Regency England.

REVIVAL SKETCHES & REVIVAL MANUAL in Two Parts
HEMAN HUMPHREY (1769-1861)

The church of Jesus Christ finally has a comprehensive introduction to the subject of revival. Over the last half of the last century many excellent books and articles have been written or republished on this vital subject, but none could be called a complete introduction. This volume has everything necessary to introduce the novice to this subject as well as challenge the seasoned student of revival. As in all areas of study an introduction is essential to both those seeking to communicate information and those desiring to be informed.

The well-written and inspirational book, Revival Sketches and Manual by Herman Humphrey was originally published in 1859 and fills this void.

The book is divided into two parts.

The first part, Revival Sketches, includes an overview of reviving influences of the Holy Spirit upon the cause of God from Old Testament times to 1859. In the first part predominance is given to the period between 1800-1859. Humphrey includes at least two chapters of first-hand reports of revivals in various churches written by their pastors or others in the congregations. But nothing of the flow of the book is lost; rather, the level of interest in God's sovereign hand of intervention in the lives of individuals and churches is increased.

The second part is a Revival Manual. This section is filled with practical advice for those who desire to be winners of souls and wise in applying the Word of God to every conscience and case which might arise as one pursues his pastoral duties. This part has three divisions. The first division answers the question how revivals are to be sought and by what means they might be promoted. The second chapter, entitled "Brief Appeals," raises a number of possible responses which might be heard by those who seek to deal with persons who are confronted with the claims of Jesus Christ. The third section is "Revival Conversations: Between a Pastor and Inquirers." This section is also very profitable to both the novice as well as the seasoned pastor. The advice given in this section will be extremely helpful to all who seek to guide inquirers toward the narrow way.

THE COLLECTED SERMONS OF BENJAMIN MORGAN PALMER
B.M. Palmer

These sermons constitute nearly an entire Systematic Theology by one of the greatest preachers in America in the 19th century.

The Obituary for Dr. Palmer appearing in The Interior read as follows:

"The decease of Dr. Palmer of New Orleans is like a change in the landscape of the South. As far as it is possible for one man in the space of a lifetime to be a part of the fixed order of things, Dr. Palmer has become identified like some old-time landmark with his denomination, his city and his section of the nation. He was one of that class of men who are incapable of change; what he was as he came to the maturity of manhood he remained until death. It is doubtless true that the world would be unfortunate if all its strong men should crystallize in that adamantine way, but living in a time that suffers little lack of impulses to progress, we ought to thank God that he still scatters through the churches some immovable men to hinder and obstruct headlong haste. From an almost opposite pole of Christian temperment THE INTERIOR clearly recognizes that Dr. Palmer served God and his generation as a symbol of the immutability of the great essentials of our religion. His faithful witness to Jesus Christ in the word of his preaching and the example of his ministry gave him such power in New Orleans as few of the Lord's ambassadors have ever wielded in any age of the church. By all consent he was acknowledged for years to be the most influential man in that city, and he was so brave and outspoken that he made for righteousness not only in the private lives of men but in the civic life of the community.

He was born in Charleston, S.C. in 1818 and had been over leading churches in Savannah and Columbia before he went to the First Presbyterian church of New Orleans in 1856. His pastoral term there covered fifty-six consecutive years. He retained excellent vigor and still preached powerfully despite his great age, and his life might have been prolonged still for several years if he had not suffered injury beneath a street car which ran him down in the streets of New Orleans a few weeks ago. He did not die from the direct effects of that accident, but the shock seemed so to weaken his vital powers that fatal disease soon supervened." [Excerpted from The Interior, Volume 33, Number 1671, June 5, 1902, page 734.]
