The Lantern of Light. Chapter Ten: How the Good of the Second Church, Accord With the First Church.

Whoever separates from the unity of steadfast faith, and the fellowship of this church, he may neither be absolved from the bonds of his sins, neither may he come into the bliss of heaven. See now then, both learned and unlearned, how prayers and all other suffragest are in common to this spiritual church. Whence then comes to this outcry that is heard? the keen sale in every church to sell these spiritual things, with suffrages and absolutions, with many years of pardon, and a plenary indulgence from fault and punishment? Certainly, they come from beneath, of the fiend’s tempting, and are borne about of his accursed members, to poison the people in misbelief, and drive them to endless pain.
