For the worship of God and order therein (which is purely spiritual and evangelical), we acknowledge, indeed, the Lord Jesus Christ to be the only institutor or author of it, and the holy Scripture the only principle revealing, the only rule to judge of it and to square it by.

John Owen, A Peace-Offering, in An Apology and Humble Plea for Indulgence and Liberty of Conscience: By Sundry Protestants Differing in some things from the Present Establishment about the Worship of God (London, 1667) in William H. Goold (ed.), The Works of John Owen, D.D. (16 vols, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1850-53), 13: 554.
