About this deal

Aquinas ad. 2d. vol. prim. par. q. 44. ar 4.7. Whether it were convenient that God should require to be beloved with all the heart.

The third day the great fishes, as Whales and others, shall appear above the water, and shall cry unto Heaven, and God onely shall understand their cry. The third partiality of Mr. O. appeareth in his Epistle to his Schismatical Sister-Churches, where he taketh upon him to make a long Paraphrase on the words of Ananias to Saul, Acts 22.18. but when Doctor Brian makes but a short one on the words of Peter, Acts 2.39. The promise is made to you and to your Children: saying, if the promise be made to believers and their children, the command must reach not only to them but to their children, as running thus, be baptized you and your children, for the promise is made to you and to your children.CHAP. III. That disputations on matters of Religion are warrantable by Scripture and reason, and not onely lawfull, but sometimes also expedient and profitable. In the Concil. Tom. 4. p. 624. fourth tome of Councells, we find a disputation set down betwixt Pyrrbus Patriarch of Constantinople, and Maxi­mus a learned Monks; the Patriarch was a Monothelite, holding but one will in Christ; whereas Christ being God and man, and so having two natures, he must needs have two wills, one as he is God, another as he is man, for else he were not perfect God and perfect man: this two-fold will we find Luk. 22.42. Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me, never­thelesse not my will but thine be done: for this Maximus plea­ded against Pyrrbus as a Monothelite, who held that he had but one will, and that was divine; I speak the more distinctly of this heresie, because it is known to few what it is, to fewer how it is to be confuted. Printer's name from STC. Mostly paginated with even numbers on rectos. "Puritano-papismus" (caption title) has separate pagination; register is continuous. Reproduction of the original in the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery. The Pictvre of a Puritane; or a Relation of the Opinions, Qualities, and Practises of the Anabaptists in Germanie, and of the Puritanes in England. Wherein is firmely prooued that the Puritanes doe resemble the Anabaptists in aboue fourescore seuerall Thinges,’ London, 1605, 4to (without pagination); another edition, newly corrected and enlarged, London, 1605, 8vo, pp. 81 and 32.

Sixthly, There are so many now engaged in the defence of the Churches of Christ (for now Mr. O. sets himself against all the Churches of Europe, and New England, besides Old En­gland) that so much work cannot in reason fall to your share, as still to manage the defence of them all against him, or any such obstreperous talker; especially having such a weighty bur­den of pastoral employment continually upon you.Alexandr Schmemann (známý současný pravoslavný západoevropský teolog) napočítal v období od konce. 11. stol do pol. 15. stol. celkem 28 pokusů, kdy se byzantští imperátoři snažili dostat Církev do podřízenosti římským papežům. Uspěl jeden pokus - ten poslední, ale tuto unii s Římem se císař ani neodvážil v Byzanci publikovat.

Seventhly, Sometimes secrecy is required upon oath, that nothing be revealed to any one absent from the conference, un­til a certain time; Sleyd. Com­ment. l. 16. p. 534. as when the Emperor imposed this con­dition on the conference at Ratisbone, viz. that nothing should be communicated to any one not present, before the Emperor and Princes of the Empire were made acquainted with all the transactions under the hands of the Notaries; which the Pro­testant party could not yield unto, because their Princes requi­red an account of their proceedings of the Colloquie from time to time: this occasioned the breaking up the conference abrupt­ly without fruit, but not without mutual offence on both sides. Ibid. Tom. 1. lib. 4. q. 2. p. 166 Quomodo statu innocentiae fae­minae generati possunt &c. Ib. q. 3. c. 2. An in statu in­nocentiae inte­gritas faeminei genitali s commixtione viri, &c. Ib. q. 4. col. 1.2. Whether in the state of innocency, the number of males and females should have been equall. Liberal maintenance ma­nifestly due to the Minister. of the Gosp. by Joshuah Meene, printed for Laur. Chapman at Chancery Lane end in Hol­born, Ann. 1638.

The second proof of his partiality is this; when Doctor Bri­an hath proved our Churches of England to be true Churches of Christ by convincing arguments; Nam quae non prosunt sin­gula, juncta valent. Disp. p. 6. (convincing if taken toge­ther, though all of them be not of equal evidence and vigour [...]) all that avails nothing towards Mr. O. his satisfaction, unless he prove an impertinency to the Question, viz. That they were true Churches from their very foundation, that is, as he explaineth himself more fully elsewhere, that all the parishes of this Nation, in their first division into Parishes were visible Saints, and that those Churches gathered by preaching onely 500. Exam. of Dr. Br. Reply. p. 30, 37. Ibid. p. 24. Disp. p. 5. years before Augu­stine the Monk, were such as our Parishes now are, or that they are such now, as they were then: and this he maketh the life of the Doctors cause; and if he prove not this (saith he) he doth nothing, whereas it is neither the life nor limb of his cause; no, neither hair nor nail of it; neither a skirt nor an hem: but indeed meet nothing to the purpose. And therefore the Doctor did justly and discreetly decline it as impertinent, saying, it is our Chur­ches present, not their primitive state which I undertake to vin­dicate; and this upon very good reason.
