Second division, relating to our Redemption. Admirable moral system of Scripture. Five special inducements or exhortations to a Christian Life. // 4. False Christians who are opposed to this life censured 1. They have not truly learned Christ. 2. The Gospel not the guide of their words or actions. 3. They do not imitate Christ the Master. // 4.
