An Appendix To A Confession Of Faith- Appendix Point 22

22. As Christ doth not teach, nor allow that we should be without natural affection, or unsociable; (see Rom. 1:31.) so our being made partakers of Christ, doth not discharge us from the duties of our relations. Believing servants must perform the duties of servants towards their masters though unbelieving; I Tim. 6:1. So believing children must perform the duties of children towards their parents; Col. 3:20, believing wives, the duties of wives towards their husbands; I Pet.3:1, and believing subjects must be subject to principalities and powers, and obey Magistrates, Rom 13:1, & c. Titus 3:1. I Pet. 2:13, 14, 15. But still they must remember that their fear toward God must not be taught by the perception of men; Isaiah 29:13, that they ought to obey God rather then men; Acts 5:29, and that the submission that must be given to men, must be given to them for the Lord’s sake, I Pet. 2:14.

Thus I conclude with the Apostle’s words (in 2 Tim. 2:7) a little varied, but not misapplied; Consider what we teach: and the Lord give you understanding in all things.
