And it is very useful to read church history, and to understand what heresies have been in times past, and what havoc schisms have caused among Christians: for if this much had been known by well meaning persons in our days, we should not have seen those same opinions applauded as new light, which were long ago exploded as old heresies: nor should we have seen many honest people, taking that same course to reform the church now, and advance the Gospel, which in so many ages and nations hath heretofore destroyed the church, and cast out the Gospel.
