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

because_o it_o concern_v what_o i_o have_v already_o account_v for_o that_o the_o christian_a religion_n admit_v of_o no_o external_a nor_o ceremonial_a righteousness_n the_o great_a design_n of_o the_o gospel_n be_v to_o make_v we_o true_o good_a that_o we_o may_v be_v partaker_n of_o the_o divine_a nature_n there_o be_v nothing_o our_o lord_n do_v more_o severe_o condemn_v than_o a_o

external_a righteousness_n cut_v off_o every_o thing_n that_o be_v external_a in_o religion_n at_o a_o blow_n because_o it_o cut_v off_o all_o hope_n and_o reliance_n on_o a_o external_a

it_o exclude_v all_o external_a act_n of_o worship_n well_o rhyme_v father_n brain_n and_o stair_n since_o god_n will_v be_v worship_v as_o a_o spirit_n he_o will_v now_o confine_v his_o peculiar_a

to_o one_o place_n because_o he_o have_v no_o symbolical_a presence_n therefore_o there_o must_v be_v no_o place_n set_v apart_o from_o common_a use_n for_o religious_a worship_n thus_o god_n will_v

of_o the_o argument_n be_v this_o if_o the_o worship_n of_o god_n must_v not_o be_v confine_v to_o any_o place_n or_o symbolical_a presence_n than_o he_o must_v not_o be_v worship_v by_o a_o image_n

persuade_v all_o the_o member_n of_o his_o church_n of_o the_o truth_n of_o this_o but_o let_v i_o ask_v he_o one_o question_n be_v these_o act_n of_o penance_n in_o the_o church_n of_o rome_n intend_v as_o expression_n of_o sorrow_n for_o sin_n or_o as_o satisfaction_n for_o the_o punishment_n due_a to_o it_o be_v they_o necessary_a before_o absolution_n to_o qualify_v man_n to_o receive_v

the_o sentence_n of_o a_o judge_n impose_v by_o the_o priest_n upon_o absolution_n or_o by_o the_o fear_n of_o purgatory_n now_o if_o such_o act_n of_o penance_n be_v only_o intend_v to_o satisfy_v for_o the_o punishment_n i_o think_v to_o undergo_v punishment_n whether_o with_o or_o without_o sorrow_n for_o sin_n do_v satisfy_v for_o the_o punishment_n of_o sin_n sorrow_n may_v be_v necessary_a to_o absolution_n but_o when_o the_o guilt_n of_o sin_n be_v pardon_v if_o man_n can_v undergo_v their_o penance_n without_o sorrow_n the_o satisfaction_n be_v never_o the_o less_o and_o shall_v he_o promote_v this_o doctrine_n that_o the_o work_n of_o penance_n avail_v nothing_o unless_o they_o be_v do_v with_o a_o hearty_a sorrow_n for_o sin_n man_n will_v not_o be_v so_o easy_o persuade_v to_o undergo_v their_o penance_n especial_o if_o the_o priest_n be_v fevere_a i_o observe_v far_o that_o the_o true_a reason_n why_o any_o think_v man_n be_v so_o fond_a of_o a_o external_a righteousness_n be_v to_o excuse_v they_o from_o true_a and_o real_a holiness_n of_o life_n all_o man_n know_v that_o in_o the_o office_n of_o piety_n and_o virtue_n they_o can_v never_o do_v more_o than_o be_v their_o duty_n and_o therefore_o as_o nothing_o can_v be_v matter_n of_o merit_n which_o be_v our_o duty_n so_o the_o true_a intention_n of_o all_o merit_n and_o work_n of_o supererogation_n be_v to_o supply_v the_o place_n of_o duty_n and_o to_o satisfy_v for_o their_o sin_n or_o to_o purchase_v a_o reward_n which_o they_o have_v no_o title_n to_o by_o do_v their_o duty_n that_o be_v because_o they_o do_v not_o their_o duty_n but_o then_o the_o jesuit_n represent_v it_o as_o if_o i_o say_v 81._o they_o can_v have_v no_o reward_n for_o do_v their_o duty_n and_o therefore_o they_o add_v work_n of_o supererogation_n which_o be_v jesuit_n like_a they_o may_v be_v reward_v for_o their_o duty_n if_o they_o will_v do_v it_o though_o they_o can_v merit_v by_o do_v their_o duty_n 3_o i_o observe_v that_o to_o make_v these_o meritorious_a and_o satisfactory_a superstition_n more_o easy_a one_o man_n may_v satisfy_v for_o another_o and_o communicate_v his_o merit_n to_o he_o this_o

and_o i_o presume_v he_o will_v grant_v there_o be_v other_o satisfaction_n and_o penance_n necessary_a beside_o these_o do_v he_o never_o hear_v of_o man_n who_o have_v be_v hire_v to_o whip_v

and_o that_o at_o a_o set_a rate_n and_o downright_a bargain_n be_v the_o price_n of_o indulgence_n and_o satisfaction_n and_o if_o this_o be_v the_o reason_n of_o give_v alm_n be_v there_o such_o a_o
