Actes and Monumentes of the church

peareth by this cōmaundemēt, that we oughte not to worshippe the sacrament of bread and wyne, for it is playne idolatrie, for he sayth no similitude: therfore thou shalt not bowe down to them nor worship them. I praye you, what do you call kneling down, holding vp þe hands knocking of the brest, putting of the cappe, and making curtesy, with other like supersticion? Ye would make men to be so blind, that this is no worshipping: peraduenture ye will obiecte and say, we doe not worship the bread and the wyne, but Christes bodie, whiche was borne of the virgyn Mary, conteined vnder the forme of bread and wyne, but that is a very lye: for Christes bodie that was borne of the vyrgyn Mary, is in heauen, if S. Paules woordes be true, as vndoubtedly they are: for he sayeth in the x. to the Ebrues. But this man, after he hath offred one sacrifice for sinnes, is set down for euer on the righte hande of God, and from henceforth tarieth til his foes be made his fotestole. Also in the ix. he sayeth, for Christ is not entred into holie places that are made with handes, whiche are similitudes of true thinges, but is entred into very heauen, for to appeare now in the sight of God for vs &c. Also to Phil. iii. but our conuersation is in heauen, from whence we loke for the sauiour, euen the Lord Iesus Christ &c. Thess. i. for they them selues shew of you, what maner of entring in we had vnto you, and howe ye tourned to God from Images, for to serue the liuing God, and for to looke for his sonne from heauen, whome he raysed from death, euen Iesus, whiche deliuered vs from þe wrath to come &c. Also Iohn. 16 I went out from the father, and came in to the worlde againe. I leue the world and go to the father &c. Iohn xvii. Nowe I am not in the worlde, and they are in the world, and I come to thee. And these places of the scripture with other mo, proueth plainly, to them that haue eares to heare, that Christes bodie that was borne of the virgin Mary, is in heauē, and not in the sacramental bread and wyne, and therfore it is idolatrie to worshippe them &c.

Marginalia5To this fifth article I aunswere, that I doe beleue as I haue aforesayd, that auricular confession is not good, as it is nowe vsed, for my sinnes whiche I haue offended to God. I must seke to him for remission of my sinnes: for our sauiour Christ sayeth in the xi. of S. Mathew, come vnto me all ye that labour and are laden, I will ease you &c. The riotous sonne Luc. xv. sayeth: I wyll aryse and go to my father, & wyl saye to hym, father, I haue sinned against heauen and before thee, and am no more worthye to be called thy sonne &c. Psal. xxxi. I say, I wil knowledge myne offenses, and accuse my selfe vnto the Lorde, and so thou forgauest me the wyckednes of my sinne &c. Iob. xiii. But I wil reproue myne owne wayes in his syghte, he

shall make me hoale, and there may no Hypocrite come before him. Sirach. 34. sayeth, who can be clensed of the vncleane? and there was but one of the ten Leapers that were clensed, that came to Christe to geue him thankes. He asked for the other ix. But if I haue offended my neyghbour, I must reconcile my self to my neighbour: and if I be a notorious sinner, after the first and second admonition, it ought to be declared to the congregation, and the minister of the congregation hath power by the worde to excommunicate me, and am to be taken as a Heathen persone: not for a day, or xl. dayes, but vnto suche tyme as I do openly in the congregation knowledge my fault: then the minister hath power by the worde, to preache to me or them the remission of our sinnes, in the bloude of Iesus Christe, as it is written in the xiii. of the Actes of the Apostles, Math. xviii. Other confession I knowe none.

Marginalia6To this sixt article, I the sayde Iohn Denly haue aunswered in the fift &c.

Marginalia7To this seuenth article I aunswere, that as touching the sacrament of baptisme, whiche is the christening of children, it is altered & chaūged: for saint Iohn Baptist vsed nothinge, but the preachinge of the worde and the water, as it doth appeare, when Christe required to bee baptised of him, and others also which came to Iohn to be baptized, as it appeareth Math. iii. Mark. i. Luke. iii. and Act. viii. the Chamberlaine saide: see here is water, what letteth me to be baptized? it appereth here that Philip had preached vnto him: for he sayde, here is water. We do not reade that he asked for any creame, or oyle, nor for spettell, nor coniured water, nor coniured ware, nor yet crysome, nor salt: for it semeth that Philip had preached no such thinges to him: for he would as well haue asked for them, as for water: and the water was not coniured, but euen as it was afore. Also Act. x. Then aunswered Peter, can any man forbidde water that these should not be baptized? &c. Act. xvi. and he preached vnto him the worde of the Lorde, and to all that were in his house: and he toke them the same houre of the nyghte, and washed their woundes, and were baptized, and all they of his housholde streight waye. Here it is playn, that ther was no more but the preaching of the word, and the water. Also all the residue of this article is clene abused from the worde, with the reste of the ceremonies of your churche.

Marginalia8To this viii. article I aunswere shortly, that there are no more in deade, but twoo, that is to saye, the sacrament of baptisme, and the sacrament of the body and bloud of Christe, except ye will make the Raynbowe a Sacramēt: for there is no sacrament but hathe a promise annexed vnto it.

This article is worded somewhat differently in Rerum, p. 513; this was notdue to Foxe tampering with the text but with his printing different versions of the document in the Rerum and in 1563.
