¶ The doctrine of Fayth.

MarginaliaThe doctrine of fayth.FAith is to beleue God, lyke as Abrahā beleued God,
and it was imputed vnto him for rightuousnes.
To beleue God, is to beleue his word and to recount
it true that he sayth.
He that beleueth not Gods worde beleueth not God
hym selfe.
He that beleueth, not Gods worde hee counteth hym
false and a lyer, and beleueth not that he may and will
fulfill his word, and so he denieth both the might of God,
and God hym selfe.
