But Del is so much for this spirit that he will have the gospel to mind only the reforming of the heart, and to aim at nothing but the heart. So these foul consequences must follow hence. 1 The Gospel cares nothing for outward duties, or outward worship, all externals must be left free and indifferent, to bow to Idols, or not to bow, to murder, or not to murder, which is the false charge that the Council of Trent puts on us, the falsest calumny the Devil can devise, that in the Gospel, except faith, all other things are indifferent and neither commanded nor forbidden.
