Book 1, Chapter 12: God Distinguished from Idols…

Sections

  1. Scripture, in teaching that there is but one God, does not make a dispute about words, but attributes all honour and religious worship to him alone. This proved, 1st, By the etymology of the term. 2d, By the testimony of God himself, when he declares that he is a jealous God, and will not allow himself to be confounded with any fictitious Deity.
  2. The Papists in opposing this pure doctrine, gain nothing by their distinction of δυλια and λατρια.
  3. Passages of Scripture subversive of the Papistical distinction, and proving that religious worship is due to God alone. Perversions of Divine worship.
