to_o the_o legal_a holiness_n of_o place_n and_o thing_n god_n dwell_v among_o the_o jew_n in_o the_o temple_n of_o jerusalem_n where_o be_v the_o symbol_n and_o figure_n of_o his_o presence_n it_o

a_o holiness_n in_o the_o temple_n and_o altar_n as_o convey_v a_o holiness_n and_o sanctity_n to_o other_o thing_n even_o to_o the_o oblation_n and_o sacrifice_n which_o be_v offer_v there_o but_o now_o whatever_o holiness_n there_o be_v in_o christian_a church_n and_o oratory_n they_o be_v sanctify_v by_o the_o worship_n that_o be_v perform_v there_o not_o the_o worship_n sanctify_v by_o they_o it_o be_v the_o assembly_n of_o christian_n themselves_o that_o be_v the_o church_n the_o house_n the_o holy_a and_o live_a temple_n of_o god_n not_o the_o build_n of_o wood_n or_o stone_n wherein_o they_o meet_v god_n and_o christ_n be_v peculiar_o present_a in_o the_o assembly_n of_o christian_n though_o not_o by_o a_o figurative_a and_o symbolical_a presence_n and_o thus_o he_o be_v

the_o temple_n of_o jerusalem_n but_o it_o go_v along_o with_o the_o company_n and_o the_o worship_n and_o therefore_o the_o place_n may_v be_v call_v holy_a not_o upon_o account_n of_o its_o

every_o one_o see_v the_o vast_a difference_n between_o these_o two_o and_o thus_o all_o that_o vast_a number_n of_o ceremony_n which_o relate_v to_o this_o external_a and_o legal_a holiness_n of_o

about_o our_o neck_n there_o be_v nothing_o like_o this_o in_o the_o jewish_a religion_n though_o there_o be_v in_o the_o pagan_a worship_n but_o under_o the_o gospel_n christ_n bestow_v his_o holy_a

well_o have_v part_v with_o at_o home_n the_o true_a notion_n of_o superstition_n be_v when_o man_n think_v to_o make_v satisfaction_n for_o neglect_v or_o transgress_v their_o duty_n by_o do_v something_o which_o be_v not_o their_o duty_n but_o which_o they_o believe_v to_o be_v high_o please_v to_o god_n and_o to_o merit_n much_o of_o he_o now_o no_o man_n who_o believe_v that_o he_o can_v

yet_o these_o meritorious_a and_o satisfactory_a superstition_n be_v very_o troublesome_a to_o most_o man_n and_o though_o they_o be_v willing_a to_o be_v at_o some_o pain_n rather_o than_o part_v with_o their_o lust_n yet_o they_o will_v be_v at_o as_o little_a trouble_n as_o possible_o they_o can_v and_o herein_o the_o church_n of_o rome_n like_o a_o very_a indulgent_a mother_n have_v consult_v their_o ease_n for_o one_o man_n may_v satisfy_v for_o another_o and_o communicate_v his_o merit_n to_o he_o and_o therefore_o those_o who_o by_o their_o friend_n or_o money_n can_v

well_o as_o if_o they_o do_v it_o themselves_o or_o they_o may_v purchase_v satisfaction_n and_o merit_n out_o of_o the_o treasury_n of_o the_o church_n that_o be_v they_o may_v buy_v indulgency_n and_o pardon_n or_o it_o be_v but_o enter_v into_o some_o confraternity_n and_o then_o you_o shall_v share_v in_o their_o merit_n and_o satisfaction_n this_o be_v a_o impute_a righteousness_n with_o a_o witness_n and_o i_o think_v very_a external_n too_o when_o man_n can_v satisfy_v and_o merit_v by_o proxy_n 4._o and_o i_o think_v it_o may_v pass_v for_o a_o external_n righteousness_n too_o when_o man_n be_v sanctify_v and_o pardon_v by_o relic_n holywater_n consecrate_a bead_n bell_n candle_n agnus_n dei_n &c._n &c._n and_o how_o unlike_a be_v all_o this_o to_o the_o religion_n of_o

whoever_o consider_v what_o christian_a religion_n be_v can_v no_o more_o think_v these_o observance_n christian_a worship_n than_o he_o can_v mistake_v popish_a legend_n for_o the_o act_n of_o the_o

but_o the_o hour_n come_v and_o now_o be_v when_o the_o true_a worshipper_n shall_v worship_v the_o father_n in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n for_o the_o father_n seek_v such_o to_o worship_v he_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n and_o they_o that_o worship_v he_o must_v worship_v he_o in_o spirit_n and_o in_o truth_n now_o there_o be_v three_o thing_n include_v in_o this_o description_n of_o gospel_n

3._o that_o we_o must_v worship_v he_o with_o the_o mind_n and_o spirit_n first_o we_o must_v worship_v god_n under_o the_o notion_n of_o a_o pure_a and_o infinite_a spirit_n who_o have_v now_o confine_v his_o peculiar_a presence_n to_o no_o place_n as_o he_o former_o do_v to_o the_o temple_n at_o jerusalem_n for_o this_o be_v the_o present_a dispute_n whether_o god_n will_v be_v worship_v at_o the_o temple_n at_o jerusalem_n or_o samaria_n as_o i_o observe_v above_o in_o opposition_n to_o which_o our_o saviour_n tell_v the_o woman_n that_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n and_o therefore_o not_o confine_v to_o any_o place_n he_o be_v everywhere_o and_o present_a with_o we_o everywhere_o and_o may_v be_v worship_v everywhere_o by_o devout_a and_o pious_a soul_n that_o though_o for_o typical_a reason_n he_o have_v a_o typical_a and_o symbolical_a presence_n under_o the_o jewish_a dispensation_n yet_o this_o be_v not_o so_o agreeable_a to_o his_o nature_n who_o be_v a_o spirit_n and_o therefore_o he_o must_v not_o now_o be_v seek_v for_o in_o house_n of_o wood_n and_o stone_n and_o indeed_o the_o reformation_n of_o the_o divine_a worship_n must_v begin_v in_o rectify_v our_o notion_n and_o apprehension_n of_o god_n for_o such_o as_o we_o apprehend_v god_n to_o be_v such_o a_o kind_n of_o worship_n we_o shall_v pay_v he_o as_o be_v evident_a from_o the_o rite_n and_o ceremony_n of_o the_o pagan_a worship_n which_o be_v fit_v to_o the_o nature_n and_o history_n of_o their_o god_n for_o where_o there_o be_v no_o institute_v rite_n of_o worship_n all_o mankind_n

and_o no_o be_v can_v think_v himself_o honour_v by_o such_o action_n as_o be_v a_o contradiction_n to_o his_o own_o nature_n and_o perfection_n now_o if_o god_n will_v be_v worship_v more_o like_o a_o pure_a and_o infinite_a spirit_n under_o the_o gospel_n than_o he_o be_v under_o the_o law_n if_o this_o be_v the_o fundamental_a principle_n of_o gospel-worship_n that_o god_n be_v a_o spirit_n

to_o we_o and_o therefore_o if_o man_n consider_v what_o they_o do_v they_o go_v to_o image_n as_o to_o divine_a presence_n to_o worship_n image_n which_o as_o set_v up_o in_o church_n and_o chapel_n for_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n or_o of_o the_o saint_n be_v confine_v to_o place_n and_o make_v those_o place_n as_o much_o appropriate_a and_o peculiar_a place_n of_o worship_n as_o the_o jewish_a

of_o their_o god_n and_o if_o we_o must_v not_o appropriate_v the_o presence_n of_o god_n to_o any_o place_n than_o we_o must_v not_o worship_v he_o by_o image_n which_o be_v of_o no_o use_n but_o to_o represent_v god_n as_o sensible_o present_a with_o the_o image_n or_o in_o the_o place_n where_o the_o image_n be_v if_o god_n be_v better_o worship_v before_o a_o image_n than_o without_o one_o than_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n be_v more_o confine_v to_o that_o place_n where_o a_o image_n be_v than_o to_o those_o place_n which_o have_v no_o image_n i_o can_v see_v how_o to_o avoid_v this_o that_o if_o god_n must_v be_v worship_v by_o image_n than_o there_o must_v be_v appropriate_a place_n of_o worship_n viz._n where_o the_o image_n be_v if_o there_o be_v no_o appropriate_a place_n of_o

be_v worship_v at_o or_o before_o his_o image_n then_o that_o be_v the_o proper_a and_o peculiar_a place_n of_o worship_n where_o his_o image_n be_v nay_o though_o the_o image_n be_v not_o fix_v to_o any_o place_n but_o be_v carry_v about_o with_o we_o yet_o if_o we_o must_v worship_n god_n by_o image_n the_o image_n be_v not_o only_o the_o object_n but_o make_v the_o place_n of_o worship_n for_o there_o we_o must_v worship_n god_n where_o his_o image_n be_v if_o we_o must_v worship_v he_o before_o his_o image_n it_o be_v impossible_a to_o separate_v the_o notion_n of_o image-worship_n from_o the_o notion_n of_o a_o peculiar_a and_o appropriate_a place_n of_o worship_n for_o the_o image_n determine_v the_o place_n as_o the_o presence_n of_o the_o object_n do_v and_o as_o under_o the_o gospel_n we_o may_v worship_n god_n any_o where_o because_o he_o be_v a_o infinite_a spirit_n and_o fill_v all_o place_n and_o be_v equal_o present_a with_o all_o devout_a worshipper_n wherever_o they_o worship_v he_o so_o where_o the_o image_n be_v consecrate_a for_o a_o divine_a presence_n it_o be_v not_o only_o the_o object_n but_o the_o peculiar_a place_n of_o worship_n because_o god_n be_v peculiar_o present_a there_o or_o more_o acceptable_o worship_v there_o than_o where_o there_o be_v no_o image_n so_o that_o if_o a_o peculiar_a and_o appropriate_a place_n of_o worship_n be_v

that_o all_o our_o worship_n under_o the_o gospel_n must_v be_v direct_v to_o god_n in_o heaven_n and_o that_o be_v a_o plain_a argument_n that_o we_o must_v not_o worship_n god_n in_o image_n on_o
