image_n of_o the_o brazen_a serpent_n in_o the_o wilderness_n which_o objection_n he_o answer_v in_o this_o sort_n one_o and_o the_o self_n same_o god_n have_v by_o his_o eternal_a law_n forbid_v

god_n thou_o have_v his_o law_n make_v thou_o no_o image_n but_o if_o thou_o have_v a_o regard_n to_o the_o image_n of_o the_o serpent_n afterward_o make_v by_o moses_n then_o do_v thou_o as_o moses_n

this_o time_n sufficient_a to_o confirm_v the_o truth_n of_o the_o matter_n and_o herein_o i_o assent_n and_o consent_n to_o the_o true_a doctrine_n of_o christ_n his_o universal_a church_n &_o affirm_v the_o doctrine_n of_o the_o roman_a church_n herein_o to_o be_v false_a and_o erroneous_a and_o therefore_o i_o utter_o renounce_v and_o abjure_v it_o touch_v prayer_n for_o the_o dead_a which_o adher_v to_o another_o absurdity_n like_a to_o itself_o which_o be_v purgatory_n although_o out_o of_o the_o decree_n of_o counsel_n and_o old_a father_n many_o profess_v seem_v to_o be_v deduct_v for_o the_o maintain_v thereof_o yet_o in_o the_o whole_a process_n of_o holy_a scripture_n which_o as_o the_o prophet_n david_n say_v 118._o be_v lantern_n unto_o our_o foot_n and_o light_n unto_o our_o path_n i_o find_v no_o warrant_n for_o either_o of_o they_o but_o contrariwise_o that_o they_o be_v both_o vain_a and_o frivolous_a as_o for_o example_n in_o the_o revelation_n it_o be_v say_v 14._o beati_fw-la mortui_fw-la qui_fw-la in_o domino_fw-la moriuntur_fw-la bless_a be_v the_o dead_a that_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n for_o they_o rest_v from_o their_o labour_n etc._n etc._n if_o every_o soul_n that_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n be_v bless_v then_o there_o be_v none_o that_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n in_o purgatory_n where_o there_o be_v no_o blessedness_n but_o according_a to_o their_o opinion_n all_o misery_n and_o calamity_n even_o as_o in_o hell_n itself_o second_o it_o be_v say_v that_o they_o rest_v from_o their_o labour_n if_o then_o they_o rest_v from_o their_o labour_n it_o must_v needs_o follow_v that_o they_o be_v not_o in_o purgatory_n where_o as_o they_o themselves_o say_v be_v extreme_a labour_n though_o not_o active_a yet_o passive_a whereupon_o i_o infer_v two_o thing_n first_o that_o no_o save_a soul_n go_v to_o purgatory_n which_o be_v mean_v by_o those_o which_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n for_o every_o one_o that_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n by_o sufficient_a testimony_n of_o this_o place_n be_v bless_v which_o can_v be_v but_o in_o possess_v the_o vision_n and_o sight_n of_o god_n in_o who_o only_o the_o dead_a have_v and_o enjoy_v all_o blessedness_n the_o which_o none_o can_v have_v and_o enjoy_v but_o only_o those_o which_o be_v save_v as_o also_o rest_n from_o all_o and_o all_o manner_n of_o labour_n which_o can_v be_v have_v nor_o find_v in_o purgatory_n be_v as_o i_o say_v before_o according_a to_o the_o adversary_n opinion_n a_o place_n of_o torment_n and_o unrest_n and_o this_o place_n of_o scripture_n attribute_v both_o blessedness_n and_o rest_n and_o that_o immediate_o after_o their_o death_n to_o all_o that_o die_v in_o the_o lord_n that_o be_v the_o servant_n of_o the_o lord_n it_o must_v needs_o be_v that_o every_o such_o soul_n be_v in_o heaven_n &_o not_o in_o purgatory_n second_o i_o infer_v that_o there_o be_v no_o such_o place_n as_o purgatory_n because_o there_o be_v no_o use_n of_o nor_o for_o any_o such_o place_n for_o all_o the_o creature_n thing_n and_o place_n which_o god_n make_v he_o make_v they_o for_o some_o end_n use_v and_o purpose_n for_o he_o make_v nothing_o in_o vain_a and_o in_o all_o the_o scripture_n we_o neither_o find_v mention_n make_v of_o purgatory_n nor_o use_v for_o any_o such_o place_n which_o no_o doubt_n will_v have_v be_v do_v if_o the_o place_n have_v be_v and_o of_o such_o necessity_n as_o the_o adversary_n affirm_v it_o to_o be_v either_o by_o christ_n himself_o or_o his_o apostle_n who_o have_v leave_v we_o write_v all_o thing_n necessary_a for_o our_o salvation_n therefore_o i_o may_v safe_o conclude_v that_o there_o be_v no_o purgatory_n that_o prayer_n avail_v not_o the_o dead_a because_o i_o have_v be_v so_o tedious_a before_o i_o will_v only_o allege_v one_o example_n out_o of_o ecclesiastes_n 9_o the_o dead_a say_v he_o know_v nothing_o at_o all_o and_o they_o have_v no_o more_o portion_n for_o ever_o in_o all_o that_o be_v do_v under_o the_o sun_n if_o it_o be_v so_o then_o in_o prayer_n they_o have_v no_o portion_n if_o they_o have_v no_o portion_n in_o prayer_n then_o in_o vain_a do_v they_o pray_v for_o the_o dead_a thus_o we_o see_v this_o their_o doctrine_n both_o of_o prayer_n for_o the_o dead_a and_o purgatory_n to_o be_v false_a and_o superstitious_a and_o therefore_o i_o renounce_v and_o abjure_v it_o prayer_n to_o saint_n as_o mediator_n between_o god_n and_o we_o i_o find_v to_o derogate_v from_o the_o sole_a mediation_n of_o christ_n by_o these_o testimony_n of_o holy_a scripture_n 11._o come_v unto_o i_o say_v christ_n all_o you_o that_o be_v lade_v and_o weary_a and_o i_o will_v ease_v you_o also_o in_o another_o place_n 14._o i_o be_o the_o way_n the_o truth_n and_o the_o life_n no_o man_n come_v to_o the_o father_n but_o by_o i_o 2._o and_o s._n paul_n to_o timothy_n there_o be_v one_o god_n and_o one_o mediator_n between_o god_n and_o man_n even_o the_o man_n christ_n jesus_n which_o give_v himself_o a_o ransom_n for_o all_o man_n etc._n etc._n in_o all_o which_o place_n we_o find_v no_o mention_n make_v of_o this_o or_o that_o saint_n but_o of_o christ_n himself_o therefore_o this_o doctrine_n also_o as_o false_a and_o erroneous_a i_o abjure_v and_o renounce_v concern_v the_o propitiatory_a sacrifice_n of_o the_o mass_n for_o the_o live_n and_o the_o dead_a i_o affirm_v that_o it_o be_v injurious_a and_o derogatory_n to_o the_o death_n and_o passion_n of_o christ_n for_o our_o adversary_n will_v have_v christ_n to_o be_v daily_o offer_v both_o for_o the_o live_n and_o the_o dead_a but_o s._n paul_n say_v that_o christ_n need_v not_o to_o be_v daily_o offer_v or_o often_o time_n to_o offer_v for_o the_o people_n sin_n as_o the_o priest_n of_o the_o old_a law_n do_v 8._o for_o now_o say_v he_o in_o the_o end_n of_o the_o world_n he_o have_v appear_v once_o to_o put_v away_o sin_n by_o the_o sacrifice_n of_o himself_o etc._n etc._n and_o in_o another_o place_n he_o say_v 10._o that_o with_o one_o oblation_n he_o have_v consecrate_v for_o ever_o those_o that_o be_v sanctify_v etc._n etc._n and_o s._n peter_n say_v 3._o that_o christ_n have_v once_o suffer_v for_o sin_n the_o just_a for_o the_o unjust_a that_o he_o may_v bring_v we_o to_o god_n etc._n etc._n wherefore_o this_o one_o oblation_n of_o christ_n i_o confess_v to_o be_v sole_o propitiatory_a and_o sufficient_a for_o my_o sin_n and_o for_o the_o sin_n of_o ten_o thousand_o world_n if_o there_o be_v so_o many_o and_o i_o abjure_v all_o other_o propitiatory_a sacrifice_n and_o oblation_n whatsoever_o as_o blasphemous_a and_o injurious_a to_o this_o moreover_o i_o find_v in_o the_o old_a testament_n no_o mo_z sacrament_n prefigure_v and_o in_o the_o new_a no_o mo_z institute_v by_o our_o saviour_n christ_n who_o only_o have_v power_n to_o institute_v they_o then_o two_o that_o be_v to_o say_v the_o sacrament_n of_o baptism_n and_o the_o lord_n supper_n and_o the_o other_o five_o i_o find_v to_o be_v make_v sacrament_n by_o the_o presumptuous_a invention_n of_o man_n therefore_o as_o their_o vain_a institution_n and_o fantasy_n i_o abjure_v &_o renounce_v they_o as_o sacrament_n justification_n be_v a_o other_o great_a point_n which_o the_o adversary_n make_v to_o consist_v of_o two_o part_n that_o be_v to_o say_v of_o faith_n and_o of_o our_o own_o work_v and_o merit_v but_o the_o scripture_n allow_v not_o work_n as_o cause_n and_o retain_v only_a faith_n as_o the_o instrumental_a cause_n of_o our_o justification_n for_o the_o apostle_n say_v 3._o there_o be_v no_o difference_n all_o have_v sin_v and_o be_v deprive_v of_o the_o glory_n of_o god_n &_o be_v justify_v free_o by_o his_o grace_n through_o the_o redemption_n that_o be_v in_o christ_n jesu_n etc._n etc._n and_o it_o follow_v in_o the_o same_o chapter_n therefore_o we_o conclude_v that_o a_o man_n be_v justify_v by_o faith_n without_o the_o work_v of_o the_o law_n etc._n etc._n and_o in_o another_o place_n he_o say_v by_o grace_n
