But at present, when our purpose is to unite the sentiments of all good and learned men, and so, according to the rule of Scripture, to bring the separated Churches into one, neither labour nor trouble of any kind...
Page 318 - nor could I ever cease to wish, that it might please God to bring me to this place, where I can say, without fear or shame, the best Christian school exists, since the time of the apostles. I allow that Christ is truly preached in other places, also, but in no other have I seen the Reformation so well wrought out, both morally and religiously, as in Geneva.
Page 126 - I should regard it as a sufficient reason to act thus. But at present, when our purpose is to unite the sentiments of all good and learned men, and so, according to the rule of Scripture, to bring the separated churches into one, neither labor nor trouble of any kind ought to be spared...
Page 439 - Jésus-Christ, comme par le raporl de nos écritures vous sera manifeste. Car il ya mis de grandes menteries et méchancetés. « La quatrième raison est que, en grande partie, il ensuyt la doctrine de Simon Magus contra tous les docteurs qui furent iamays en l'Eglise.
