Views on justification 453. The term, justification, not of recent coinage 453. The terms, pardon, forgiveness, and justification employed as synonymes 454. Views of Augustine 454. Of Oecumenius, Bernard and of John Calvin 455. Of Ursinus 459. Of Paraeus 463. Imputation of the righteousness of Christ and remission of sins customarily joined in justification 465. Melancthon says

that justification signifies forgiveness of sins 466. The French and Augsburg Confessions unite substantially in the same sentiment 467. Also the Saxony and Belgic catechisms 468. Wendeline re. marks that they express the whole nature of justification who affirm that it consists in the forgiveness of sins 469, Dr. Tilenus says that either forgiveness or imputation taken separately expresses the whole nature of justification 470. Similar statement of Piscator 472. The Calvinistic church, at the first, almost entirely took the ground that pardon was the whole of justification 473. The Calvinists grad. ually began to make a distinction 474, Opinions of Dr. Amandus Polanus 474. Dr. F. Gomar 476. He explains forgiveness of sins as the prior member of justification 477. * A modern definition of pardon the same which the later Reformers gave of justification 478. Recent instances of departure from primitive Calvinism 479, such as ihat Adam was not created righteous 479. The same the opinion of Dr. Taylor of Norwich 480. Osiander condemned for maintaining this opinion 481.

The unity of the
primitive church did not consist in
absolute unanimity in religious sen-
timents 113, The Scriptures con-
tain no provision to preserve abso-

ferences of opinion did exist among
the primitive Christians 115. The

ty oí opinion on all fundamental
doctrines 120, The Apostle's creed
121. The Nicene creed 123, The
third bond of union was the mutual
acknowledgement of each other's
acts of discipline 125. The fourth
was sacramental and ministerial
communion, 126; the fifth, occa-
sional epistolary communication
128; and the last was occasional
consultation in councils or synods
