Chapter 5 “WHAT MORTIFICATION IS NOT” Continued
In answer to this important inquiry, I shall do these things:
I. Show what it is to mortify any sin, and that both negatively and positively, that we be not mistaken in the foundation.(37)
II. Give general directions for such things as without which it will be utterly impossible for anyone to get any sin truly and spiritually mortified.(38)
III. Draw out the particulars whereby this is to be done, in the whole carrying on this consideration, that it is not of the doctrine of mortification in general, but only in reference to the particular case before proposed, that I am treating.
We begin, then, with the first head: I. What Mortification Is, and deal with the foundational question in this first section: What Mortification Is Not.
