Those sins that seem most sweet in life, will prove most bitter in death.
But if I sin, I can always repent:
To this we must say that He who promised forgiveness to them that repent has not promised repentance to them that sin.
Faith, though it hath sometimes a trembling hand, it must not have a withered hand, but must stretch.
The soul is the life of the body. Faith is the life of the soul. Christ is the life of faith.
A man cannot have faith without asking, neither can he ask it without faith.
The cynic answered smartly, who coming out of a brothel, was asked whether he was not ashamed to be seen coming out of such a bad house; “No,” said he, “the shame was to go in, but honesty to come out.” Oh sirs, it is bad enough to fall into an error, but worse to persist in it. The first shows thee a man, humanun est errare, but the last makes thee like a devil, that will not repent.
There is difference betwixt error, schism, and heresy. Error is when one holds a strong opinion alone; schism, when many consent in their opinion; heresy runs further, and contends to root out the truth. Error offends, but separates not; schism offends and separates; heresy offends, separates, and rageth.... Error is weak, schism strong, heresy obstinate. Error goes out, and often comes in again; schism comes not in, but makes a new church; heresy makes not a new church, but no church.... Error is reproved and pitied, schism is reproved and punished, heresy is reproved and excommunicated. Schism is in the same faith, heresy makes another faith. Though they be thus distinguished, yet without God’s preventing grace, one will run into another.
