Queene Mary. The confeßion and beliefe of Iohn Warne, Martyr.

Marginalia1555. May.The third day he rose again from death to life.

To make full and perfect the whole woorke of our redemption and iustification, the same crucified bodye which was layd in the graue, was raysed vp againe the thyrd day from death by the power of hys Father, and glorye of hys Godhead: he became the first fruites of the resurrection, and gotte the victorye of death, that all by hym might be raised vp frō death. Through whō all true penitent sinners may now boldly come vnto the father, and haue remission of their sinnes.

[Back to Top]

He ascended into heauē, & sitteth on the ryght hand of God the father almighty.

After that in his death and resurrection he had conquered sinne, death, and the Deuill, and had bene conuersaunt 40. dayes in the earth, being seene of the Apostles, and more then fiue hundreth brethren at once in the same body in which he wrought the work of our saluation, he ascended into heauen with eternall triumph for MarginaliaThe triumphant victory ouer death.the victory ouer death, sinne, and hell, leauing the passage open, by which all true beleuers may, and shall enter into his kingdome, where he now sitteth at his fathers right hand, that is to say, in power and glory equall, in maiesty coeternall.

[Back to Top]

From thence he shall come to iudge the quicke and the dead.

Hee shall appeare agayne in great glorye to receaue his elect vnto him selfe, and to put his enemies vnder his feete, chaunging all liuing men in a moment, and raysing vp all that be dead, that all may be brought to his iudgement. In this shall he geue ech man according to his deedes. They which haue followed him in regeneration, which haue their sinnes washed away in his bloud, and are clothed with his righteousnes, shal receiue the euerlasting kingdome, and reigne with him for euer: and they which after the race of the corrupt generatiō of Adam haue followed flesh and bloud shall receaue euerlasting damnation with the Deuill and his aungels.

I beleue in the holy ghost. 

Commentary  *  Close

This point establishes that Warne, unlike some Marian protestants, believed in the Trinity. Again, Foxe would have been happy to record Warne's orthodoxy on this issue.

I do beleue that the holy ghost is God, the third person in Trinity, in vnity of the Godhead equal with the father and the sonne, geuen through Christ to enhabite our spirites, by which we are made to feele and vnderstand the great power, vertue, and louing kindnes of Christ our Lorde. For he illumineth, quickeneth and certifieth our spirite, that by him we are sealed vp vnto the day of redemption: by whom we are regenerate & made new creatures, so that by him & through him, we do receiue all the aboundaunt goodnes promised vs in Iesus Christ.

The holy Catholicke Church.

Which is an holy number of Adams posterity elected, gathered, washed, and purified by the bloud of the lambe frō the beginning of the world, MarginaliaThe Church. and is dispersed through the same, by the tyranny of Gog and Magog, that is to say, the Turke and his tyranny, and Antichrist, otherwyse named the Byshop of Rome and hys aungels, as this day also doth teach.

The Communion of Saintes.

Which most holy congregation (beyng as Paul teacheth, builded vpon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophetes, Christ being the head corner stone) though it be by the tyranny of Sathan and his Ministers persecuted, some by imprisonment, some by death, and some by other afflictions and paynefull tormentes: yet doth it remaine in one perfect vnitie both in fayth and fellowshyp: which vnitie is knit in an vnspeakable knot, as well of them which are departed from this mortall lyfe, as of them which now be lyuing and hereafter shalbe in the same, and so shall cōtinue vntill they all do meete in the kyngdome, where the head Iesus Christ, with all these his holy members (of which num-

[Back to Top]

ber through Christ I assuredly beleue that I am one) shalbe fully cōplete, knit, and vnited together for euer more.

The forgiuenes of sinnes.

I do beleue that my sinnes and all their sinnes which do rightly beleue the holy Scripture, are forgiuen onely through that Iesus Christ, MarginaliaRemission only through Christ.of whom onely I do professe that I haue my whole & ful saluation and redemption, which as S. Paul sayth, commeth not through our workes and deseruynges, but freely by grace, lest any man should boast hym selfe. Through the bloud of his Crosse all thynges in heauen and earth are reconciled, and set at peace with the father: without hym no heauenly lyfe is geuen, nor sinne forgeuen.

[Back to Top]

The resurrection of the body.

I do beleue by the same my Sauiour Christ, I and all men shal rise agayne from death: for he, as Paul sayth, is risen agayne from the dead and is become the first fruites of them which sleepe. For by a man came death, and by a man commeth the resurrection from death. MarginaliaResurrection. This mā is Christ, through the power of whose resurrectiō, I beleue that we all shall rise again in these our bodyes: the elect clothed with immortalitie to liue with Christ for euer: the reprobrate also shall rise immortall to lyue with the deuill and his aungels in death euerlastyng.

[Back to Top]

And the lyfe euerlastyng.

Through the same Iesus and by none other, I am sure to haue lyfe euerlastyng. He onely is the way and entraunce into the kyngdome of heauen. MarginaliaIohn 3.For so God loued the world, that he dyd geue hys onely sonne Iesus Christ, to the end that so many as doe beleue in hym, might haue euerlasting lyfe. MarginaliaLife and saluation onely by faith in Christ. The which I am sure to possesse so soone as I am dissolued, and departed out of this tabernacle, and in the last day shall both body and soule possesse the same for euer: to the which God graunt all men to come.

[Back to Top]

I beleue that the Sacramētes, that is to say, of Baptisme and of the Lordes Supper MarginaliaTwo Sacramentes of the new testamēt. are seales of Gods most mercyfull promises towardes mankynd. In Baptisme, as by the outward creature of water I am washed from the filthynes which hangeth on my flesh: so do I assuredly beleue, that I am by Christes bloud washed cleane frō my sinnes, through which I haue sure confidence of my certaine saluation. In the partakyng of the Lordes Supper, as I receiue the substaunce of bread and wyne (the nature of which is to strengthen the body:) so do I by fayth receiue the redemption wrought in Christes body broken on the Crosse, life by his death, resurrection by his resurrection, and in summe, all that euer Christ in his body suffered for my saluation, to the strēgthenyng of my fayth in the same. And I beleue that God hath appointed the eating and drinking of the creatures of bread and wyne in his holy supper according to hys word, to moue and to stirre vp my mynd to beleue these articles aboue written.

[Back to Top]

This is my fayth: this I do beleue, and I am content by Gods grace to confirme and seale the truth of the same with my bloud.

By me Iohn Warne.

¶ A letter of Iohn Cardmaker, to a certayne friend of hys. 
Commentary  *  Close
Cardmaker's Letters

By this time, Cardmaker had clearly decided not to recant and was anxious to scupper reports that he had recanted. This letter enables Foxe to make it seem as though Cardmaker had never recanted.

The peace of God be wyth you.

MarginaliaA letter of M. Cardmaker to a certayne frend of hys.YOu shall right wel perceiue that I am not gone back as some men doe report me, but am as ready to geue my lyfe as any of my brethren that are gone before mee, although by a policie I haue a lytle prolonged it, & that for the best, as already it appeareth vnto me, and shortly shall appeare vnto all. That day that I recant any poynt of doctrine, I shall suffer. xx. kindes of death, the Lord beyng myne assistance, as I doubt not but he wyl. Commend me to my friend, and tell hym no lesse. This
