The docterine of eternal judgement acts 2— 41 Peter preached repent & be baptised in the name of jesus Christ for the remision of sins &c but in act 3 12 he says repent and be converted that your sins my be forgiven blotted out when the times of refreshing <​redemption​> shall come & he shall send jesus &c remission of sins by baptisom was not to be preached to murderers. all the preasts in crisendom might pray for a murderer on the [p.
