  • H. C. Porter
Part of the History in Depth book series (HD)


Forasmuch as heretofore it hath been thought good to bear with the weakness of certain for a time, who were too much addicted to ceremonies, thinking thereby to win them to doctrine; which sort of people for the most part have so little profited thereby this twelve or thirteen years that from their weakness they are grown to malicious wilfulness, not only craving, contending and urging ceremonies, never caring for doctrine, but by conspiracy, rebellion and open violence have practised not only utterly to displace doctrine but to overthrow the whole state, to bring in ceremonies and all other abominations; for such as so entirely love a part, do not hate the whole.
