REVEALED UNTO DESTRUCTION.
In answer to many false doctrines and principles which Babylon's
merchants have traded with, being held forth by the professed minis-
ters, and teachers, and professors in England, Ireland, and Scotland,
taken under their own hands, and from their own mouths, sent forth

long fled into the wilderness.
An invasion upon the great city Babylon, with the spoiling of her golden cup,
and delicate merchandise, whereby she hath deceived the world and nations;
and herein is declared the spoiling of her prey, in this answer to the multitude
of doctrines held forth by the many false sects, which have lost the key of
knowledge, and been on foot since the apostles' days, called Anabaptists,
Independents, Presbyters, Ranters, and many others; who out of their own
mouths have manifested themselves not to be of a true descent from the true
christian churches: but it is discovered that they have been all made drunk
with the wine of fornication received from the whore which hath sitten upon
the beast, after whom the world hath wondered.
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth their merchandise any more."-Rep. xviii, 18.
" And they cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea, by reason of her costliness, for in one hour is she made desolate."Rev. xviii. 18, 19.
