with_o all_o the_o law_n and_o constitution_n of_o our_o admirable_a government_n both_o in_o church_n and_o state_n be_v absolute_o necessary_a not_o only_o for_o our_o own_o sake_n but_o the_o

worship_n and_o ecclesiastical_a discipline_n and_o polity_n of_o our_o church_n but_o what_o be_v plain_o express_v in_o the_o holy_a scripture_n hereby_o exclude_v all_o human_a law_n and_o

of_o our_o unchristian_a division_n which_o have_v almost_o tear_v in_o piece_n our_o church_n be_v owe_v to_o this_o unreasonable_a and_o groundless_a conjecture_n whereas_o on_o the_o contrary_a the_o writer_n of_o the_o great_a note_n and_o eminence_n among_o our_o brethren_n of_o the_o nonconformity_n be_v force_v to_o acknowledge_v that_o there_o be_v many_o circumstance_n in_o the_o

in_o their_o own_o assembly_n and_o we_o know_v it_o to_o be_v true_a and_o certain_a there_o be_v many_o such_o circumstance_n for_o which_o they_o have_v no_o express_a rule_n in_o scripture_n but_o do_v use_v they_o prudential_o for_o the_o honour_n and_o interest_n of_o religion_n and_o the_o order_n &_o uniformity_n of_o god_n worship_n beside_o it_o be_v observable_a that_o the_o holy_a scripture_n treat_v chief_o of_o the_o essential_o of_o faith_n and_o worship_n and_o only_o mention_v the_o governor_n and_o government_n of_o the_o church_n with_o some_o general_a rule_n as_o before_o for_o the_o order_n of_o its_o polity_n and_o discipline_n insomuch_o that_o many_o person_n of_o great_a learning_n and_o judgement_n be_v of_o opinion_n that_o there_o be_v no_o one_o

perfect_a model_n of_o church_n government_n behind_o he_o for_o we_o have_v see_v already_o that_o the_o holy_a scripture_n be_v primary_o intend_v to_o instruct_v we_o in_o the_o fundamental_o of_o faith_n and_o christian_a morality_n and_o speak_v only_o overt_o of_o church_n discipline_n and_o government_n and_o for_o the_o fidelity_n of_o christ_n herein_o it_o be_v plain_a that_o the_o church_n in_o our_o saviour_n time_n be_v in_o her_o minority_n which_o must_v afterward_o by_o degree_n grow_v up_o to_o a_o state_n of_o great_a liberty_n and_o perfection_n what_o other_o have_v urge_v from_o the_o form_n of_o church_n government_n under_o the_o jewish_a oeconomie_n conclude_v nothing_o for_o the_o jew_n live_v all_o under_o one_o polity_n and_o in_o one_o nation_n whereas_o christianity_n be_v disperse_v all_o over_o the_o world_n under_o many_o disserent_fw-la civil_a government_n and_o therefore_o the_o circumstance_n of_o religious_a worship_n and_o church_n

shall_v be_v affright_v from_o his_o duty_n with_o mere_a bug_n and_o scarecrow_n or_o the_o empty_a appearance_n of_o error_n without_o sufficient_a ground_n for_o though_o our_o liturgy_n and_o set-form_n of_o worship_n have_v be_v extreme_o cavile_v at_o by_o some_o of_o our_o adversary_n yet_o it_o be_v evident_a that_o neither_o the_o prophet_n of_o old_a nor_o our_o saviour_n and_o his_o

prayer_n to_o be_v use_v by_o his_o apostle_n and_o follower_n though_o they_o be_v doubtless_o as_o able_a to_o pray_v by_o the_o spirit_n as_o the_o most_o seraphic_a enthusiast_n which_o method_n also_o be_v observe_v by_o john_n the_o baptist_n for_o the_o direction_n and_o assistance_n of_o his_o disciple_n in_o god_n worship_n all_o which_o state_v form_n become_v pattern_n and_o

be_v contrary_a to_o but_o most_o exact_o conformable_a to_o those_o rule_n 4._o let_v not_o the_o bare_a pretence_n then_o of_o some_o small_a error_n in_o and_o about_o the_o circumstance_n of_o public_a worship_n prevail_v with_o any_o man_n to_o separate_v from_o the_o communion_n of_o his_o national_a church_n see_v there_o have_v be_v and_o be_v as_o many_o and_o probable_o great_a error_n in_o all_o the_o church_n of_o christ_n in_o all_o age_n of_o the_o gospel_n for_o though_o our_o bless_a saviour_n promise_v that_o the_o gate_n of_o hell_n shall_v not_o prevail_v against_o the_o universal_a church_n that_o he_o will_v be_v with_o she_o to_o the_o end_n of_o the_o world_n send_v his_o spirit_n to_o lead_v she_o into_o all_o truth_n and_o abide_v with_o she_o for_o ever_o yet_o these_o promise_n do_v only_o respect_v the_o fundamental_a doctrine_n of_o the_o catholic_a and_o universal_a church_n of_o christ_n or_o a_o people_n profess_v the_o truth_n however_o they_o may_v err_v as_o all_o of_o they_o do_v in_o opinion_n not_o essential_a to_o religion_n and_o see_v every_o particular_a church_n may_v be_v guilty_a of_o some_o error_n and_o mistake_v in_o

and_o those_o fickle_a and_o fanciful_a person_n may_v have_v have_v the_o same_o plea_n to_o have_v separate_v from_o the_o christian_a church_n in_o the_o time_n of_o the_o apostle_n that_o they_o have_v now_o from_o we_o nor_o be_v there_o any_o one_o that_o understand_v the_o state_n of_o our_o church_n but_o will_v ready_o acknowledge_v that_o our_o order_n of_o bishop_n priest_n and_o

hold_v and_o maintain_v all_o the_o essential_o both_o of_o faith_n and_o of_o worship_n for_o we_o have_v see_v already_o that_o all_o man_n be_v oblige_v to_o conform_v themselves_o to_o the_o
