Sil vester, Bp.

again on the other side, some be so new-fangled, that they would innovate all things, and so despise the old, that nothing can like them, but that is nei: it was thought expedient, not so much to have respect how to please ani satisfy either of these partics, as how to please God, and profit them both. And yet lest any man should be offended, whom good reason might satisfy, here be certain causes rendered, why some of the accustomed Cere inonies be put away, and some retained and kept still.

Some are put away, because the great excess and multitude of them hath so increased in these latter days, that the burden of thein was into lerable; whereof St. Augustine in his time complained, that they were grown to such a number, that the estate of Christian people was in worse case concerning that matter, than were the Jews. And he counselled that such yoke and burden should be taken away, as time would serve quietly to do it. But what would St. Augustine hare said, if he had seen the Ceremonies of late days used among us ; whereunto the multitude used in his time was not to be compared? This our excessive multitude of Ceremonies was so great, and many of them so dark, that they did more confound and darken, than declare and set forth Christ's benefits unto us. And besides this, Christ's Gospel is not a Ceremonial Law, (as much of Moses' Law ras,) but it is a religion to serve God, not in bondage of the figure or shadow, but in the frecdom of the Spirit; being content only with those Ceremonia which do sen'c to a decent order and goally discipline, and such as be apt to stir up the dull mind of man to the remembrance of his duty to God, by some notable and special signification, whereby he might be edified. Furthermore, the most ireighty cause of the abolishment of certain Cere monics was, that they were so far abused, partly by the superstitious blind. ness of the rude and unlearnel, and partly by the unsatiable avarice of such as sought more their own lucre, than the glory of God, that ube abuses could not well be taken away, the thing remaining still.

But now as concerning those persons, which peradventure will be offer ed, for that some of the old Ceremonies are retained still: If they consider that without some Ceremonies it is not possible to keep any order, or quiet discipline in the Church, they shall easily perceive just cause to reform their judgements. And if they think much, that any of the old do remain, and would rather have all devised anew: then such men granting some tere monics convenient to be had, suruly where the old may be well used, there they cannot reasonably reprove the old only for their age, without betray. ing of their own folly. For in such a case they ought rather to have reve. rence into them for their antiquity, if they will declare themselves to be more studious of unity and concord, than of innovations and neir-tangle ness, which (as much as may be with tre setting forth of Christ's religion) is always to he eschevel. Furthermore, such shall have no just cause with the Ceremonies reserved to be offended. For as those be taken away which were most alused, and did bunden men's consciences without any cause; so the other that remain, are retained for a discipline and order, which (upon just causes) may be altered and changad, and therefore are not to be estamai equal with Gol's law. And moreover, they be neither dark por dumb ('eremonies, but are so set forth, that every man may understand what they do incan, and to what use they do serie. So that it is not like that they in time to come should be abused as other have been. And in these our doings we conlemn no other nations, nor prescribe any thing tut to our own people only : for we think it convenient that every country should use such'Ceremonies as they shall think I est to the setting forth of God's honour ani glory, and to the ralucing of the people to a most perfect and godly living, without error or superstition; and that they should put atray other things, which from time to time they perceive to be most abusal, as in men's ordinances it often chanceth direnly in divers countries.
