"When Cassander, one of the successors of Alexander, was persuading them to receive Alexander to be worshiped amongst their gods, and that if they refused he would denounce war against them, Demades their orator told them, that it was to be feared while they were holding the heavens, they should lose the earth. But I change the words with Peter Martyr, that it is to be feared ne dum Rempublicam terrenam curatis & defenditis nimium, coelum amittatis: while you stand for the state, that you lose religion." Alexander Henderson, "A Sermon Preached To the Honorable House of Commons At Their Late Solemn Fast, Wednesday, December 27, 1643," in Sermons Preached before the English Houses of Parliament by the Scottish Commissioners to the Westminster Assembly of Divines 1643–1645 (Naphtali Press, 2011), 109.
