Blasphemia in Spiritum Sanctum. XVI. Blasphemia in Spiritum Sanctum est, cum quis verborum Dei manifeste perceptam veritatem, ex malitia et obfirmatione animi, convitiis insectatur, et hostiliter insequitur. Atque hujusmodi, quia maledicto sunt obnoxii, gravissimo sese astringunt sceleri. Unde peccati hoc genus Irremissibile a Domino appellatur, et affirmatur.

Resurrectio Mortuorum nondum est facta, XXXIX. Resurrectio mortuorum non adhuc facta est, quasi tantum ad animum pertineat, qui per Christi gratiam a morte peccatorum excitetur, sed extremo die quoad omnes qui obierunt, expectanda est; tunc enim vita defunctis (ut Scripturæ manifestissime testantur) propria corpora, carnes et ossa restituentur, ut homo integer, prout vel rectè vel perditè vixerit juxta sua opera, sive præmia sive pænas reportet.

Defunctorum animæ neque cum corporibus intercunt, neque otiose dormiunt. XL. Qui animas defunctorum prædicant usque ad diem judicii absque omni sensu dormire, aut illas asserunt una cum corporibus mori, et extrema die cum illis excitandis, ab orthodoxa fide, quæ nobis in sacris literis traditur, prorsus dissentiunt.

Millenarii, XLI. Qui Millenariorum fabulam revocare conantur, sacris literis adversantur, et in Judaica deliramenta sese præcipitant.

Non omnes tandem servandi sunt, XLII. Hi quoque damnatione digni sunt, qui conantur hodie perniciosam opinionem instaurare, quod omnes, quantumvis impii, servandi sunt tandem, cum definito tempore a justitia divina pænas de admissis Hagitiis luerunt.
