Tucker, Pastor of the First Church in Newbury, praises rights of conscience, and warns against authoritarian edicts which make "the opinions of men the standard [italics in original] of divine truth." That, he says, "is the very foundation upon which popery stands, and the grand prop by which it has been supported from generation to generation. Popes and councils have fixed the sense of scripture, which must never be contradicted: They have determined and decreed what shall be the catholic faith, and to depart from this, on any pretence whatever, is deemed heresy."
