The resolving of conscience, upon this question.
Whether upon such a supposition or case, as is now usually made (the King will not discharge his trust but is bent or seduced to subvert religion, laws, and liberties) subjects may take arms and resist? and whether that case be now? Resolved, I. That no conscience upon such a supposition or case can finde a safe and cleare ground for such resistance. II. That no man in conscience can be truly perswaded, that the resistance now made is such, as they themselves pretend to, that plead for it in such a case. III. That no man in conscience can be truly perswaded that such a case is now, that is, that the King will not discharge his trust but is bent to subvert, &c. Whence it followeth, that the resistance now made against the higher power is unwarrantable, and according to the Apostle damnable, Rom. 13. Also that the shedding of bloud in the pursuit of this resistance is murder. By H. Fern D.D. &c.
