‘Take heed of engaging yourselves in a sect or faction.’ For when once you depart from catholic charity, there groweth up instead of it, a partial respect to the interest of that sect to which you join; and you will think that whatsoever doth promote that sect, doth promote Christianity; and whatever is against ‘that sect, is against the church or cause of God.
Richard Baxter, William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 6 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 184.
