A Specimen of a System of Divinity, in which it seems that all Protestants may agree.Let us make trial then whether such a System of Divinity may not be compos’d, as in which the Two Parties of Protestants which have commonly gone under the Names of Lutherans and Reform’d, may consent and agree. Upon which the Decision of that grand Question seems to depend, namely, whether they agree in the Foundation of the Faith, or in the Fundamental Articles or not. Which hitherto the most of the Lutherans have denied, and on the contrary the Reform’d have affirm’d. Which debate comes to this, what are Fundamental Articles, and what are not. For the determining of which Articles there does not seem to be any more expeditious Way than this: That a System of Divinity be fram’d of Points which are yielded on both Sides first, and then that the Controversies which remain be examin’d, to see whether or no they are of so great Concernment as to justifie a Difference between these Two Parties, and the maintaining it with so much Animosity and Bitterness against each other, to the Prejudice of the common Cause, and the great Advantage of the Enemy who seeks by this means to ruin both.
