the due administration of the Sacramentes, charitye, and faithfull obseruing of Ecclesiastical disclipline, according to the woord of God. And that church or congregation which is ganished with these markes, is in verye dede that heauenly Hierusalem, which consisteth of those that be borne from aboue. MarginaliaApoc. 21. Iohn. 3. Gala. 4. This is the mother of vs all. And by gods grace, I will liue, and dye the childe of this church. Forth of this (I graunt) ther is no saluation: and I suppose the residue of the places obiected are rightly to be vnderstanded of this churche only. In tymes paste (sayeth Crisostome MarginaliaIn. op. im. homi. 49. in Math.) there were many wayes to knowe the Churche of Christ, that is to saye, by good life, by miracles, by chastitye, by doctrine, by ministring the Sacramentes. But from that tyme that heresies did take holde of the church, it is only knowen by the scriptures which is the true church. They haue all things in outward shewe, which the true churche hath in truth. They haue temples like vnto ours.

And in the ende concluded. Wherfore only by the scripturs doo wee knowe which is the true churche. To that which they saye, the Masse is the sacrament of vnitye, I answer Marginalia1. Cor. 10The breade which we breake, accordinge to the institution of the Lorde, is the sacramēnt of the vnitye of Christes misticall bodye. For we being many, are one breade, and one bodye, for as muche as we all are partakers of one breade. But in the Masse, the Lordes institucion is not obserued: for we be not all partakers of one breade, but one deuoureth all, &c. So that (as it is vsed) it maye seme a Sacrament of singularitye, and of a certen speciall priuelege for one sect of people, wherby they may be discerned from the rest rather then a sacrament of vnitye, Wherin our knitting together in one is represented.

MarginaliaH. Latimer.Yea, what felowship hath Christ with Antichrist? Therfore is it not lawfull to beare the yoake with papists. Come forth from amonge them, and separate your selfes from them, saith the Lorde. Marginalia2. Corin. 6 It is one thinge to be the Churche in dede, another thing to coūterfait the church. Would God it were well knowen, what is the forsaking of the churche. In the kinges dayes that dead is, who was the church of England? The King and his fautors, or Massemongers in corners? If the kinge and the fautors of his procedings, why be not we now the church abiding in the same procedinges? If clanculary Massemongers might be of the church, and yet contrary to the kinges procedinges, why may not we as well be of the Churche contrarieng the quenes procedinges? Not all that bee couered with the title of the church, ar the church in dede. Separate thy selfe from them that are such saith S. Paule: Marginalia1. Timo. 6. from whom? The text hath before. If any man follow other doctrine, &c. he is puft vp and knoweth nothing, &c. Weigh the whole texte, that ye maye perceiue what is the fruit of contentiouse disputaciōs. But wherfore are suche men sayd to knowe nothing, whē they knowe so manye thinges. You know the olde verses.

[Back to Top]

Hoc est nescire, sine Christo plurima scire.
Si Christum bene scis, satis est, si cætera nescis.

That is: This is to be ignoraunte, to knowe many thinges without christ. Marginalia1. Corint. 2If thou knowest Christ wel, thou knowest inough, though thou know no more. Therfore would Sainct Paule know nothing, but Iesus Christ crucified. &c.

As many as are papistes, and massemongers, they may wel be sayd to know nothing. For they know not Christ, forasmuch as in their massing they take much away from the benifite and meryte of Christ.

MarginaliaAnton. obiect. 6.That Christ which you haue described vnto me, is inuisible, but Christes church is visible and knowen. For els why woulde Christ haue sayd, dic Ecclesiæ. Tel it vnto the church. For he had cōmaunded in vaine to go vnto the church if a man can not tell which it is.

MarginaliaN. Ryd. Answer.The church which I haue described is visible it hath members which maye be seen: and also I haue a fore declared, by what markes and tokens it may be knowen. But if either our eies are so daselled, that wee cannot se it, or that Sathā hath brought such darkenes into the world that it is hard to discerne the true church: that is not the fault of the church, but either of our blindnes, or of Sathans darkenes. But yet in this moste depe darknes, there is one moste cleare candell, which of it selfe alone is able to put awaye all darcknes Thy word is a candle vnto my feete, and a lyght vnto my steppes.

MarginaliaAnton. obiect. 7.The Church of Christ is a Catholike or vniuersall church, dispersed throughout the whole world: this church is the great house of God, in this are good men and euyll mingled together, gotes and shepe corne and chaffe: it is the nette which gathereth of al kind of fishes: this church cannot erre, because Christ hath promised it his spirit, which shall lead it into al truth and that the gates of hell shall not preuaile against it, that he will be with it vnto the end of the world: What so euer it shall lose or binde vpon earth, shable ratified in heauen. &c. This church is the piller and staye of the truth: this is it for the which Sainte Austine sayth, he beleueth the gospel. But this vniuersall church alloweth the masse, because the more parte of the same alloweth it. Therfore. &c.

[Back to Top]

MarginaliaN. Ridleis answer.I graunt that the name of the church is taken after thre diuers maners in the scriptures. Some time for the whoole multitude of them which professe the name of Christ, of the which they are also named christians. But as Saynte Paul saith of the Iew, not euery one is a Iew that is a Iew outwardlye &c. Neyther yet all that be of Israell, are counted the sede, euen so not euery one which is a christian outwardlye, is a christian in dede. For if anye man haue not the spirit of christ, the same is none of his. Therfore that churche which is his body, & of which Christe is the heade, standeth onlye of liuinge stones, and true christians, not only outwardlye in name and title, but inwardly in hart and in truth. But for as much as this church, (which is the second taking of the church) as touching the outward felowshippe, is contayned within that great house, and hath with the same outward societye of the sacramentes, and ministerye of the worde, manye thinges are spoken of that vniuersall church (which saint Austen calleth the mingled churche) which cannot trulye be vnderstanded, but only of that purer parte of the church. So that the rule of Ticonius concerninge the mingled churche, maye here well take place: when there is attributed vnto the whole churche that whiche cannot agree vnto the same, but by reason of the one parte therof, that is eyther for the multitude of good men, Whyche is the verye true Churche in dede,
