Page 65 - ... but the true understanding and meaning thereof is, that although we hear God's Word, and believe it; although we have faith, hope, charity, repentance, dread, and fear of God within us, and do never so many good works thereunto; yet we must renounce the merit of all our said virtues...
Page 97 - Our life is hid with Christ in God, and when Christ, who is our life, shall appear ; then shall we also appear with him in glory.
Page 48 - He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the Lord.
