SERM. CXIV. Practice in religion neceffary, in proportion
to our knowledge.-
Luke xii. 47, 48. And that
fervant which knew his Lord's will, and prepared not himself,
neither did according to his will, fhall be beaten with many stripes:
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes,
fhall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is
given, of him fall much be required; and to whom men have
committed much, of him they will ask the more.
BERM. CXV. CXVI. The fins of men not chargeable upon
God; but upon themselves.- James i. 13, 14. Let
no man fay when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for
God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own
Luft, and enticed.
