5. Obiect. We are expresly forbidden to be dseruants of men.
Answ. To be a seruant in that place is not simply to be in sub∣iection * vnder another, and to doe seruice vnto him, but to be Page 594 so obsequious to a man, so addicted to please him, and so sub∣iect to his will, as to doe whatsoeuer he will haue done: to re∣gard nothing but his pleasure: to prefer it before Gods word and will. It is not therefore the thing it selfe, but an excesse therein which is there forbidden.
