dential Reasons, but by Divine Directions and Authority, the Office and Commission is truly said to be from the Holy-Ghoft, though conferred by the Ministry of Men. Consequently it is po Pride or Ambition to say, That the Offices of Bishops and Presbyters, and their Right to feed such Flocks, as by A postolical or Episcopal Hands are committed to them, is derived from God, and therefore not to be taken from them in any other way than such as he has authorized in his Holy Word. If Pride and Ambition is to be charged upon any Clergy, it is most justly chargeable upon those who affect to get into the highest Stations of the Church by flattering the Civil Powers, and endeavouring to make them and the World believe, that all Power, Spiritual as well as Temporal, is derived only from them, that so by their Help and Alistance they may at least get the Temporal Polesions and Honours which, by the Bounty of Pious and Religious Princes have been settled on the Church. The Office of a Bishop or Priest, though it carry a Divine Authority with it, is an Office of Labour; and therefore S. Paul says, (s) He that desireth the Office of a Bishop, defirezh a good Work. He then that desireth the Work, is not according to S. Paul's Testimony, proud and ambitious. But he, that by indirect Means, such as giving up to Temporal Princes, all that Power which Christ vested in his Apostles and their Succellors the Bi. shops, seeks to advance himself, cannot be excused from Pride and Ambition.
