I have been guilty of wrong thinking.
Neither do I think that I ever put any dishonour upon you.
Must not I then entertain the saints because I must keep my conscience.
But now having seen him which is invisible I fear not what man can do unto me.
I am called here to answer before you, but I hear no things laid to my charge.
I do here speak it before the court. I look that the Lord should deliver me by his providence.
Will it please you to answer me this and to give me a rule for then I will willingly submit to any truth.
How did Abraham know that it was God that bid him offer his son, being a breach of the sixth commandment?
If you look upon the rule in Titus it is a rule to me. If you convince me that it is no rule I shall yield.
As I understand it, laws, commands, rules and edicts are for those who have not the light which makres plain the pathway.
