Puritan Board Senior
1. If ye prize Christ and His truth so as ye will sell all and buy Him: and suffer for it.

2. If the love of Christ keepeth you back from sinnning, more than the law, or fear of hell.

3. If ye be humble, and deny your own will, wir, credit, ease, honour, the world and the vanity and glory of it.

4. Your profession must not be barren, and void of good works.

5. You must in all things aim at God's honour; ye must eat, drink, sleep, buy, sell, sit, stand, speak, pray, read and hear the word, with a heart purpose that God maybe honoured.

6. Ye must show yourself an enemy to sin, and reprove the works of darkness, such as drunkeness, swearing and lying, albeit the company should hate you for so doing.

7. Keep in mind the truth of God, that ye heard me teach, and have nothing to do with the corruptions and new guises entered into the house of God

8. Make conscious of your calling, in covenants, in buying and selling.

9. Acquaint youself with daily praying; commit all your ways and actions to God, by prayer, supplication, and thanksgiving; and count not much of being mocked; for Christ Jesus was mocked for you.
