For as it is a perogative of a King to appoint the wayes of his owne service and honour, and he should be taken to be very presumptuous and arrogant that should take upon him to prescribe a fashion of attendance, suite and service to his prince without consent, when he hath otherwise delcared his will; so is it much more intolerable pride, and presumption in a mortall man, to appoint a way of service to God, which he never consented to, but hath otherwise directed his owne service. And for the same reason it is a transferring of God’s perogative on a man, when he doth servilly consent by subjectinig his conscience to such usurpation.
