A PARISH LOOKING-GLASSE FOR Persecutors of Ministers.

Wherein Such persecuting People may behold their ugly-faced sinfull Condition, and the Judgments of God falling on their heads. OR, The Persecuted Ministers Apologie.

Published by Richard Culmer for the Common Good.

Especially, That the Christian Magistrate may take more notice of, and be more zealous against Persecutors and Oppressors of faith∣full Ministers: which Persecutors endeavour, first, to ruine Ministers which are weaker in power than Magistrates; intending afterwards more easily to ruine Magistrates also, and level all.

AND That people (Sectaries and others) which despise, mock, revile, slander, defraud, oppress faithful Ministers, sent by the care and wisdom of the Christian Magistrate, may be warned by the Judgements full of horrour, upon such Persecutors, herein recorded, which God hath set forth for example to others.

And published by him more especially, In Defence of his Father Richard Culmer, Minister of Mynster, in the County of Kent, in the Isle of Thanet, near Canterbury.

To prevent his said Fathers causless ruin, which is now endeavoured by those, who (as the ensuing History shews, after many publick, shameless, savage Persecutions of him, by word and deed, to the shedding of his bloud, only for his actings for God and the present State) now go about by secret false suggestions, to have him cast out of his Living; and of their Confidence to prevail against him it is boasted in Canterbury, and elswhere publickly, which hath caused this publick Apology.

Psal. 7. 13.
God ordaineth his Arrows against the Persecutors.
Matth. 23. 37.
O Hierusalem, Hierusalem, thou that killest the Prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee, &c.
1 Cor. 15. 32.
I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, after the manner of men.
2 Cor. 6. 9.
Persecuted, yet not forsaken.

London, Printed by Abraham Miller, 1657.
