book

A seasonable discourse, wherein is examined what is lawful during the confusions and revolutions of government; especially in the case of a king deserting his kingdoms: and how far a man may lawfully conform to the powers and commands of those, who with various successes hold kingdoms. Whether it be lawful, I. In paying taxes. II. In personal service. III. In taking oaths. IV. In giving himself up to a final allegiance. As also, whether the nature of war be inconsistent with the nature of the Christian religion
