The belief of the Deity no Politick Invention. The asserting that 'tis ne∣cessary to preserve States in order, is Page [unnumbered] a strong proof of its truth. No Histo∣ry intimates when this belief was intro∣duc'd into the World. The continuance of it, argues that its rise was not from a Civil Decree. Princes themselves are under the fears of the Deity. The mul∣titude of false Gods does not prejudice the natural notion of one true God. Ido∣latry was not universal. The Worship of the only true God is preserved where Idolatry is abolished.
