Sect. 2. Non numeranda suffragia, sed appendenda, saith Augustine in Psal. xxxix. Our divines hold, that all things which are proposed by the ministers of the church, yea, by aecumenical councils, should be proved and examined; and that, when the guides of the church do institute any ceremonies as necessary for edification, yet ecclesia liberum habet judicium approbandi aut reprobandi eas.
