same_o time_n that_o this_o be_v only_o command_v concern_v that_o country_n and_o that_o there_o be_v no_o proof_n can_v be_v make_v that_o there_o be_v any_o innocent_a book_n there_o employ_v in_o their_o idol-worship_n no_o we_o conclude_v rather_o all_o be_v superstitious_a and_o idolatrous_a in_o themselves_o and_o such_o as_o can_v never_o be_v employ_v in_o divine_a service_n it_o be_v true_a at_o last_o he_o come_v to_o remember_v we_o that_o in_o the_o new_a testament_n we_o read_v the_o christian_n convert_v burn_v their_o curious_a book_n act._n 19.19_o but_o what_o be_v this_o to_o the_o precept_n he_o promise_v to_o show_v we_o give_v to_o the_o israelite_n and_o what_o be_v this_o to_o the_o business_n of_o prayer-book_n nay_o why_o do_v he_o not_o show_v we_o the_o innocence_n of_o these_o book_n and_o prove_v that_o conjure_a be_v a_o very_a harmless_a art_n n._n c._n i_o wish_v you_o will_v have_v do_v with_o this_o book_n of_o he_o which_o i_o think_v in_o one_o sense_n be_v innocent_a enough_o and_o will_v do_v no_o harm_n among_o consider_v people_n c._n i_o be_o content_a to_o make_v a_o end_n for_o i_o fear_v i_o have_v be_v too_o tedious_a but_o it_o be_v out_o of_o a_o desire_n to_o examine_v serious_o whether_o there_o be_v such_o force_n as_o he_o conceive_v in_o this_o engine_n to_o batter_v down_o all_o the_o fortification_n that_o they_o who_o preside_v in_o the_o church_n or_o their_o assistant_n can_v erect_v in_o defence_n of_o the_o abuse_a scandalous_a thing_n as_o he_o call_v they_o which_o with_o so_o much_o zeal_n we_o contend_v for_o viz._n the_o liturgy_n and_o ceremony_n they_o be_v his_o word_n in_o his_o epistle_n n._n c._n he_o tell_v you_o a_o little_a after_o that_o he_o will_v not_o offer_v to_o impose_v his_o belief_n on_o other_o let_v every_o body_n read_v and_o then_o do_v as_o he_o find_v cause_n c._n i_o commend_v his_o ingenuity_n and_o modesty_n only_o i_o wish_v his_o zeal_n be_v a_o little_a less_o in_o this_o matter_n and_o that_o he_o will_v not_o think_v himself_o and_o other_o engage_v to_o endeavour_v to_o the_o utmost_a of_o their_o power_n the_o extirpation_n and_o abolish_n of_o the_o liturgy_n for_o what_o be_v this_o but_o to_o impose_v his_o belief_n upon_o we_o as_o much_o as_o he_o be_v able_a in_o his_o place_n do_v he_o only_o offer_v his_o reason_n who_o solicit_v and_o persuade_v and_o entreat_v man_n to_o promote_v his_o design_n do_v he_o leave_v other_o to_o judge_n who_o engage_v their_o affection_n and_o stir_v up_o their_o passion_n as_o if_o the_o cause_n be_v already_o decide_v according_a to_o his_o mind_n this_o it_o be_v to_o be_v zealous_a to_o advance_v a_o private_a opinion_n he_o mean_v it_o be_v like_a as_o he_o speak_v when_o he_o tell_v we_o in_o his_o epistle_n that_o he_o expect_v and_o desire_a 〈◊〉_d more_o but_o that_o we_o will_v candid_o weigh_v th●_n case_n but_o his_o zeal_n make_v he_o forget_v himself_o and_o earnest_o beseech_v we_o to_o be_v up_o and_o do_v as_o if_o judgement_n be_v already_o give_v on_o his_o side_n this_o i_o make_v no_o doubt_n be_v the_o thing_n that_o put_v he_o so_o much_o beside_o the_o cushion_n as_o to_o make_v he_o magnify_v the_o purity_n of_o those_o doctrine_n which_o in_o sober_a thought_n he_o see_v be_v of_o pernicious_a consequence_n and_o i_o will_v willing_o think_v it_o be_v nothing_o else_o that_o make_v he_o only_o pass_v his_o word_n that_o the_o liturgy_n be_v one_o of_o the_o thing_n that_o god_n will_v have_v lay_v aside_o without_o any_o proof_n of_o it_o for_o whatsoever_o he_o or_o the_o assembly_n have_v be_v please_v to_o say_v no_o body_n ever_o make_v a_o idol_n of_o it_o or_o be_v guilty_a of_o adore_v it_o these_o be_v but_o a_o kind_n of_o conjure_a phrase_n and_o magical_a word_n which_o make_v a_o great_a sound_n and_o astonish_v the_o silly_a people_n but_o signify_v nothing_o save_v only_o this_o that_o man_n care_v not_o what_o they_o say_v to_o serve_v their_o cause_n and_o therefore_o i_o hope_v you_o will_v not_o be_v affright_v by_o such_o bugbear_n but_o come_v and_o do_v your_o duty_n to_o god_n and_o man_n both_o together_o in_o join_v with_o we_o in_o common-prayer_n n._n c._n i_o will_v consider_v it_o as_o i_o have_v tell_v you_o more_o than_o once_o but_o i_o have_v have_v the_o less_o mind_n to_o come_v to_o it_o because_o after_o it_o be_v do_v your_o minister_n pray_v so_o cold_o himself_o c._n that_o be_v he_o do_v not_o put_v himself_o into_o a_o sweat_n but_o be_v not_o his_o word_n lively_a and_o apt_a to_o warm_v the_o heart_n of_o those_o who_o attend_v to_o they_o n._n c._n methinks_v not_o and_o beside_o his_o sermon_n that_o follow_v be_v very_o dull_a and_o nothing_o comparable_a to_o we_o c._n now_o you_o be_v get_v again_o to_o the_o hole_n from_o whence_o i_o do_v drive_v you_o a_o good_a while_n ago_o you_o run_v in_o a_o circle_n of_o discourse_n and_o be_v return_v thither_o where_o we_o first_o begin_v but_o since_o i_o have_v follow_v your_o motion_n thus_o far_o i_o will_v ask_v you_o this_o question_n why_o do_v you_o not_o rather_o think_v yourself_o dull_a than_o he_o n._n c._n because_o i_o be_o not_o dull_a in_o other_o place_n and_o yet_o be_v so_o at_o your_o church_n c._n you_o may_v be_v in_o the_o fault_n for_o all_o that_o for_o perhaps_o you_o be_v disaffect_v to_o his_o person_n or_o to_o his_o method_n of_o handle_v thing_n or_o you_o have_v a_o great_a kindness_n for_o some_o other_o and_o then_o though_o s._n paul_n himself_o shall_v preach_v you_o will_v be_v apt_a to_o prefer_v that_o man_n before_o he_o n._n c._n no_o methinks_v his_o matter_n be_v dull_a and_o flat_a c._n why_o what_o do_v you_o hear_v he_o treat_v of_o n._n c._n i_o hear_v he_o preach_v about_o the_o necessity_n of_o obedience_n to_o the_o law_n of_o christ_n and_o there_o he_o tell_v we_o how_o we_o must_v do_v as_o we_o will_v be_v do_v unto_o and_o love_v our_o neighbour_n as_o ourselves_o and_o forgive_v injury_n and_o make_v restitution_n of_o ill-gotten_a good_n with_o a_o great_a many_o other_o such_o like_a thing_n which_o every_o body_n know_v already_o and_o yet_o he_o spend_v i_o know_v not_o well_o how_o many_o sermon_n about_o these_o common_a matter_n c._n do_v every_o body_n know_v these_o thing_n say_v you_o the_o great_a shame_n than_o that_o they_o live_v not_o according_a to_o they_o i_o be_o afraid_a they_o be_v not_o sensible_a of_o the_o necessity_n of_o these_o thing_n about_o which_o a_o man_n of_o any_o understanding_n and_o seriousness_n can_v well_o speak_v and_o be_v flat_a and_o dull_a i_o much_o suspect_v that_o you_o even_o set_v yourself_o to_o sleep_v or_o suffer_v your_o thought_n to_o run_v to_o other_o matter_n or_o fall_v a_o read_n in_o your_o bible_n as_o i_o have_v see_v some_o do_v when_o he_o begin_v to_o treat_v of_o such_o argument_n as_o these_o think_v that_o you_o be_v little_o concern_v in_o they_o n._n c._n i_o must_v confess_v part_n of_o what_o you_o say_v for_o when_o i_o come_v to_o church_n i_o look_v not_o for_o moral_a but_o christian_a doctrine_n c._n how_o now_o do_v you_o oppose_v morality_n and_o christianity_n be_v not_o the_o former_a a_o part_n of_o the_o latter_a i_o mean_v do_v not_o the_o christian_a religion_n teach_v we_o the_o high_a morality_n n._n c._n no_o i_o think_v it_o do_v not_o meddle_v with_o it_o c._n then_o you_o talk_v of_o this_o as_o you_o do_v of_o many_o other_o thing_n without_o understanding_n pray_v what_o be_v moral_a doctrine_n n._n c._n do_v you_o tell_v i_o if_o you_o please_v c._n i_o always_o take_v it_o to_o be_v that_o doctrine_n which_o teach_v we_o how_o to_o regulate_v our_o manner_n that_o be_v to_o order_n and_o govern_v our_o action_n or_o our_o whole_a behaviour_n in_o this_o world_n now_o i_o appeal_v to_o any_o man_n that_o read_v the_o gospel_n whether_o this_o be_v not_o the_o very_a design_n of_o it_o to_o teach_v we_o to_o live_v sober_o righteous_o and_o godly_o n._n c._n be_v this_o morality_n c._n yes_o that_o it_o be_v and_o therefore_o i_o say_v that_o christian_a religion_n advance_v morality_n to_o the_o great_a height_n because_o it_o give_v we_o the_o best_a and_o most_o excellent_a motive_n to_o live_v sober_o righteous_o charitable_o and_o pious_o in_o this_o world_n n._n c._n for_o all_o this_o i_o think_v it_o be_v better_a if_o jesus_n christ_n be_v more_o preach_v c._n still_o i_o see_v you_o deceive_v yourself_o and_o trouble_v the_o world_n with_o phrase_n do_v not_o he_o preach_v jesus_n christ_n that_o preach_v his_o doctrine_n if_o you_o doubt_v of_o it_o you_o shall_v
