He saith, that the accidents of bread and wine do mould, sour, and wax vinegar, p. 265. l. 11. and 355. l. 8. [vol. iii. p. 382.] and Marcus, fol. 168. fac. 1. Smith saith thus: I say that the consecrated wine turneth not into vinegar, nor the consecrated bread mouldeth nor engendereth worms, nor is burned, nor receiveth into it any poison, as long as Christ's body and blood are under the forms of them, which do abide there, so long as the natural qualities and properties of bread and wine tarry there in their natural disposition and condition, (that the bread and wine might be naturally there if they had not been changed into Christ's body and blood,) and also as long as the host and consecrated wine are apt to be received of man, and no longer, but go and depart thence by God's power as it pleaseth him; and then a new substance is made of God, which turneth into vinegar, engendereth worms, mouldeth, is turned, feedeth men and mice, receiveth poison, &c. fol. 64 and 105.

He saith, every yea containeth a nay in it naturally, so as whosoever saith, This is bread, saith it is no wine; for in the rule of common reason the grant of one substance is the denial of another: and therefore reason hath these conclusions throughly, whatsoever is bread is no wine, whatsoever is wine is no milk, &c. So Christ saying, This is my body, saith it is no bread, p. 256. 1. 38. and p. 265. 1. 5. [vol. iii. p. 369.] Smith saith, a boy which hath only learned the sophistry will not dispute so fondly, fol. 77.

upon the altar of the cross is the very satisfactory sacrifice for the reconciliation of mankind to the favour of God, p. 437. 1. 1.

Priests do offer for our salvation to get heaven and to avoid hell, fol. eodem.

[vol. iii. p. 382.] And as reason received into faith's service, doth not strive with transubstantiation, but agreeth with it, so man's senses be no such direct adversaries to transubstantiation, as a matter whereof they can no skill, for the senses can no skill of substances, p. 271. 1. 24. [vol. iii. p. 391.]


Thine eyes say there is but bread and wine; thy taste saith the same; thy feeling and smelling agree fully with them hereunto is added the carnal man's understanding, which, because it taketh the beginning of the senses, proceedeth in reasoning sensually.
