THE

Doctrine & Discipline

OF

DIVORCE:

Restor'd to the good of both Sexes,
From the bondage of Canon Law, and

other mistakes to the true meaning of Scripture
in the Law and Gospel compar'd.

Wherin also are set down the bad consequences of
abolishing or condemning of Sin, that which the
Law of God allowes, and Christ abolisht not.

In Two BOOKS:

To the Parlament of England with the Assembly.


The Author J. M.


Matth. 13.52.
Every Scribe instructed to the Kingdome of Heav'n, is like the
Maister of a house which bringeth out of his treasury things
new and old.

Prov. 18.13.
He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and
shame unto him.


LONDON,
