LOCKE AND GOD
"It is in vain to usurp the name of Christian, without
holiness of life, purity, of manners, benignity and meekness of spirit."
(Locke, 1952, 1)
"God Himself will
not save men against their wills."
"Faith only and inward
sincerity are the things that procure acceptance with God." (Ibid, 10)
"Obedience is due, in
the first place to God and afterwards to the laws." (Ibid, 16)
Those are not at all to
be tolerated who deny the being of a God." (Ibid, 18)
