CHAP. XIX. That the Romish Church maketh Christ insufficient to saluation, contrary to the second Limitation of Bellarmine.
ALthough to blinde the eyes of the ignorant,* and to car∣rie captiue simple soules with false pretenses, they cast smooth and faire glosses, vpon their venemous and diuelish blasphemies: yet there are diuers strong and demonstratiue arguments, by which the Synagogue of Rome is euidently conuinced, that it esteemeth Christ as an insufficient Redee∣mer. I will reduce all of them vnto fiue heads. First, because they make the Saints Redeemers of themselues: the second, because they make the helpe of Saints not onely profitable, but ab∣solutely necessary to our Redemption: the third, because they make the blessed Ʋirgin Saint Mary the first mouing cause, or spring of Saluation: the fourth, because they make the Saints our sole and absolute Redeemers: the fift, because they make the Virgin the Sa∣uiour of Women, as Christ is of Men. Strange assertions you will say: but I trust, by that time you haue well weighed and considered the proofes and Testimonies I shall produce, the cleare eye of an vnpartiall iudgement will easily discerne betwixt the Sheepes clothing, and the rauening Wolfe: be∣twixt the bitter pill they prepare for the stomacke, and the gold, which is cast vpon it, to deceiue the sight.
