Gillespie's Dying Testimony Against Unlawful Associations — Sets forth the practical implications of the doctrine asserted in his Miscellany Question #14 on Associations, with evident application to the Protester/Resolutioner conflict which would develop soon after Mr. Gillespie's death, as well as many of the later questions and conflicts that would arise in nations turning away from the Christian faith, and churches departing from Reformation orthodoxy.
Gillespie's Miscellany Questions, Chapter 01: The Ministry a Perpetual Ordinance of Christ — Mr. Gillespie explains how that we must receive all true ministers as the messengers of Christ and the word of God by them as the word of God.

Gillespie's Miscellany Questions, Chapter 14: Of Unlawful Associations — Mr. Gillespie condemns all voluntary associations with "Idolaters, Infidels, Heretics, or any other known Enemies of Truth and Godliness," for religious or military purposes. Both modern nations, and modern churches (including Reformed churches,) are effectively rebuked, and their various compromises of Truth and Righteousness condemned, by the scripture and reasoning presented in this discussion.
Gillespie's Miscellany Questions, Chapter 09: Of Heretics, Heresies, & Schisms — Mr. Gillespie defines Heresies as "gross & dangerous error, voluntarily held and factiously maintained by some person or persons within the visible church, in opposition to some chief or substantial truth or truths grounded upon and drawn from the holy Scripture by necessary consequence." Likewise, he identifies as fundamental truths, "all of the truths commonly put in the confessions of faith, and in the more full and large catechisms of the reformed churches, or all such truths as all and every one who lives in a true Christian reformed church are commanded and required to learn and know." We may conclude that Gillespie would hold all those as heretics who reject any of the doctrines of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Also of interest is Mr. Gillespie's explanation of why there "must be heresies" among us.

Gillespie's Miscellany Questions, Chapter 12: Unsound Heads Prove Unsound Hearts — Mr. Gillespie rebukes those that spread the soul-destroying doctrine that a man may have a sound, regenerate heart without a right understanding of the Gospel - too often suggested even by some in modern Reformed churches.
Gillespie's Miscellany Questions, Chapter 11: Against Scepticism and Wavering - Mr. Gillespie rebukes all those who believe they can know nothing certainly or show themselves practical unbelievers and atheists by their wavering opinions. He also warns against all readiness to receive or search out "new light" and rebukes those who think themselves infallible, while exhorting all to be "immovable in the truth."
