HAWKINS. 10 of the word of God ? The catholic church must be judge. " White. We will be tried by the best reformed churches. The church of Scotland hath the word truly preached, the sacraments truly ministered, and discipline according to the word of God : these are the marks by which a true church is known. Dean. We have a gracious prince. Prisoners. May God preserve her majesty and council. White. That which God commandeth, ought to bedone; and that which God forbiddeth, ought not to be done. Bishop. Yes; and so say I. White. It is manifest that what God commandeth to be done, is left undone; and what God forbiddeth, is done by authority. God says, "Six days shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do : but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God." But the law of the prince saith, "Thou shalt not labour six days, but shalt keep the popish holy-days."-Christ commandeth discipline to be used in his church, Matt. xviii., andit was practised by the apostles : but in the church of England, that is set aside, and none used but the popish discipline. And Christ saith, " If any man shall add unto those things which he has revealed, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written inhis book : and if any man shall take away from the words of his book, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city." Rev. xxii. Howwill you avoid this ? Bishop. Why, is it not well to hear a good sermon or two on the holy-days ? White. We are not against that. But what shall we do when the sermons are ended ? If we do any work, we are commanded to appear in your courts. Bishop. You may bewell employed in serving God. White. So we are, when we are at our work, as God commandeth. Dean. Then youwould have no sermons, nor prayers, all the week. White. I think he is no christian who does not pray and serve God every day in theweek. Nixson. You can suffer bear-baiting, bowling, and other games, both on the sabbath and your holy-days, without any troublefor it. Dean. Then youwould have no holy-days, because the papists haveused them ?
