HAWKINS. 141 was made an idols and idolatry is forbidden in the scriptures. Hawkins. By the same argument, I will prove your garments to be forbidden in the scriptures. In Psalm cxxxviii. it is said, that " God hails magnified his word above all his name." And 2 Cor. x. it is said, " The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds ; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringeth into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." But you have brought the word of God into captivity to the pope's gar- ments and his canon 1zw. Therefore they are forbidden in the scriptures. "And," says Christ, " that which is highly esteemed amongst men, is abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi. White. Reprove what we hold, and prove what you would have us to observe, by the scriptures, andwe will yield to you. But if you cannot do this, why do you persecute us. Bishop. You are not obedient to the prince. Dean. Doth not St. Peter say, " Be obedient unto every ordinance of man ?" White. Yes, so far as their ordinances are according to thewill of God. Nixson. It bath always been the practice of popish bishops, when they could not defend their cause by scrip- ture, to make the mayor and aldermen their servants and butchers, to execute punishment. But you, my lord, seeing you have heard and seen our cause, will take good adver- tisement concerning the same. Mayor. How irreverently you speak before my lords and us, in making such a comparison ! Bishop. Have we not a godly prince ? Or, is she evil ? White. What the answer to that question is, the fruits do shew. Bowland. Yes, the servants of God are persecuted under her. Bishop. Mark this, mylord. Hawkins. The prophet may answer this question. "Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eatbread ?" Dean. Do we hold any heresy ? Do we deny any article of faith ? Dowe maintain purgatory or pilgrimage ? No
