A Sermon Of Good Works Annexed Unto Faith

God grant all us, the king’s highness faithful and true subjects, to feed of the sweet and savoury bread of God’s own word, and, as Christ commanded, to eschew all our pharisaical and papistical leaven of man’s feigned religion; which, although it were before God most abominable, and contrary to God’s commandments and Christ’s pure religion, yet it was extolled to be a most godly life and highest state of perfection; as though a man might be more godly and more perfect by keeping the rules, traditions, and professions of men, than by keeping the holy commandments of God.
