Title : A Caveat against Unsound Doctrines: Being the Substance of a Sermon Preached in the Parish Church of St. Ann, Blackfryars; on Sunday, April 29, 1770  
Author : Augustus Montague Toplady  

Toplady was much satisfied with this record of his sermon preached at Bethnall Green, so much so that it is the work that he recommends in his publication "The Reverend Mr Toplady's Dying Avowal of his Religious Sentiments" that " If the Reader wishes to see a doctrinal Compendium of these (i.e. the specific Outlines of my religious Sentiments), he will find it, in a Sermon of mine intitled, A Caveat against unsound Doctrines : every Part of which I hereby avow to be declarative of my fixed and ultimate Judgment".

The work defends in some detail the doctrines of Justification by faith and election, stating that:

"Do you imagine that God could foresee any holiness in men which he himself did not decree to give them? We did not bribe God to create us; and how is it possible that we should pay him anything for saving us?"
