And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.
עמוד 4 - Let every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God. And they that resist, purchase to themselves damnation.
