Page 128 - Who although he be God and Man; yet he is not two, but one Christ; One; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh: but by taking of the Manhood into God; One altogether, not by confusion of Substance: but by unity of Person.
Page 126 - For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity, to acknowledge every Person by himself to be God and Lord; So are we forbidden by the Catholic religion to say, there be three Gods, or three Lords.
Page 123 - I do believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God, and to contain all things necessary to salvation; and I do solemnly engage to conform to the Doctrine, Discipline, and Worship of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America.
Page 128 - For the right faith is, that we believe and confess, That our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and man...
Page 266 - Scarce once herself, by turns all womankind! Who, with herself, or others, from her birth Finds all her life one warfare upon earth: Shines in exposing knaves, and painting fools, Yet is, whate'er she hates and ridicules.
Page 267 - Inferior not dependent? worse. Offend her, and she knows not to forgive; Oblige her, and she'll hate you while you live: But die, and she'll adore you - Then the Bust And Temple rise - then fall again to dust.
Page 126 - So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God; And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.
Page 267 - Offend her, and she knows not to forgive ; Oblige her, and she'll hate you while you live ; But die, and she'll adore you — then the bust And temple rise — then fall again to dust. Last night her lord was all that's good and great; A knave this morning, and his will a cheat.
Page 127 - The Father is made of none : neither created nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone : not made, nor created, but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son : neither made, nor created, nor begotten, but proceeding.
Page 128 - One, not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh, but by taking of the Manhood into God; One altogether; not by confusion of Substance, but by unity of Person. For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man, so God and Man is one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, rose again the third day from the dead.
