Here are some edited highlights from these two Homilies. AN HOMILIE AGAINST disobedience and wilfull rebellion The second book of homilies XX1 As in reading of the holy Scriptures, we shall finde in very many and almost infinite places, as well of the olde Testament, as of the new, that Kings and Princes, as well the euill as the good, doe raigne by Gods ordinance, and that subiects are bounden to obey them (Psalms 18.50, 20.6, 21.2, Proverbs 8.15-16): that GOD doth giue Princes wisedome, great power, and authority: By these two places of the holy Scriptures, it is most euident that Kings, Queenes, and other Princes ( for hee speaketh of authoritie and power, be it in men or women) are ordeined of GOD, are to bee obeyed and honoured of their subiects: that such subiects, as are disobedient or rebellious against their Princes, disobey GOD, and procure their owne damnation so hath hee constituted, ordeyned, and set earthly Princes ouer particular Kingdomes and Dominions in earth (Ecclesiasticus 17) But whereas indeede a rebell is worse then the worst prince, and rebellion worse then the worst gouernement of the worst prince that hitherto hath beene: both rebels are vnmeete ministers, and rebellion an vnfit and vnwholsome medicine to reforme any small lackes in a prince, or to cure any little griefes in gouernment, ( 1st book of Homilies X) Here let vs marke well, and remember that the high power and authoritie of Kinges, with their making of lawes, iudgements and offices, are the ordinances not of man, but of GOD: and therefore is this word (through mee) so many times repeated. Here is also well to bee considered and remembred, that this good order is appointed by GODS wisedome, fauour, and loue, especially for them that loue GOD, and therefore hee sayth, I loue them that loue mee. I could go on (and some people probably think I do). I don't know how some people especially Americans from Moderators down can live with themselves if they support the ideals of the American rebellion of the later 18th century in the light of these godly homilies. Especially as they had treaties with Louis as king of France to help them, which is against the BoCP.
