1 Corinthians 12:12

12 For as the body is one, and hath yet many membres, neuertheles all the membres of the body though they be many, are yet but one body: euen so Christ also.

1 Corinthians 12:15-19

15 Yf the fote saye: I am not ye hande, therfore am I not a membre of the body,is he therfore not a membre of ye body? 16 And yf the eare saye: I am not the eye, therfore am I not a membre of the body, is he therfore not a membre of the body? 17 Yf all the body were an eye, where were then the hearinge? Yf all were hearinge, where then the smellinge? 18 But now hath God set the membres, euery one seuerally in the body, as it hath pleased him. 19 Neuertheles yf all the mebres were one membre, where were then the body?

Romans 14:1-23

1 Him that is weake in the faith, receaue vnto you, and trouble not the consciences. 2 One beleueth that he maye eate all thinge: but he that is weake, eateth herbes. 3 Let not him that eateth, despyse him that eateth not: and let not him which eateth not, iudge him that eateth: for God hath receaued him. 4 Who art thou, that iudgest another mans seruaut? He stondeth or falleth vnto his LORDE: Yee he maye well stode, for God is able to make hi stode. 5 Some man putteth differece betwene daye & daye, but another man counteth all dayes alyke. Let euery man be sure of his meanynge. 6 He that putteth difference in the daye, doth it vnto the LORDE: & he that putteth no differece in the daye, doth it vnto ye LORDE also. He yt eateth, eateth vnto the LORDE, for he geueth God thakes: 7 and he that eateth not, eateth not vnto ye LORDE, and geueth God thankes. 8 For none of vs lyueth to himselfe, and none dyeth to him selfe. Yf we lyue, we lyue vnto the LORDE: Yf we dye, we dye vnto the LORDE. Therfore, whether we lyue or dye, we are the LORDES. 9 For therto dyed Christ, and rose agayne, and reuyued, that he mighte be LORDE both of deed and quycke. 10 But why iudgest thou yi brother? Or thou other, why despysest thou yi brother? We shal all be broughte before ye iudgmet seate of Christ. 11 For it is wrytte: As truly as I lyue, (sayeth the LORDE) all knees shal bowe vnto me, & all tuges shal knowlege vnto God. 12 Thus shal euery one of vs geue acomptes for himselfe vnto God. 13 Let vs not therfore iudge one another enymore. But iudge this rather, yt noma put a stomblinge blocke or an occasion to fall in his brothers waye. 14 I knowe, & am full certified in ye LORDE Iesu, yt there is nothinge comen of itselfe: but vnto him yt iudgeth it to be comen, to him is it comen. 15 But yf yi brother be greued ouer yi meate, the walkest thou not now after charite. Destroye not wt thy meate, him, for whom Christ dyed, 16 Se therfore that youre treasure be not euell spoke of. 17 For the kyngdome of God is not meate and drynke, but righteousnes, & peace, and ioye in the holy goost. 18 He that in these thinges serueth Christ, pleaseth God, & is comended of me. 19 Let vs therfore folowe those thinges which make for peace, & thinges wherwith one maye edifye another. 20 Destroye not ye worke of God for eny meates sake. All thinges truly are cleane, but it is euell for yt ma, which eateth wt hurte of his coscience 21 It is moch better yt thou eate no flesh, and drynke no wyne, nor eny thinge, wherby thy brother stombleth, or falleth, or is made weake. 22 Hast thou faith, haue it with yi selfe before God Happye is he, that codemneth not him selfe in yt thinge which he aloweth. 23 But he that maketh conscience of it and yet eateth, is dampned: because he doth it not of faith. For what so euer is not of faith, that same is synne.

Colossians 1:16-17

16 For by him were all thinges created, that are in heauen and earth, thinges vysible and thinges inuysible, whether they be maiesties or lordshippes, ether rules or powers: All thinges are created by him and in him, 17 and he is before all thinges, and in him all thinges haue their beynge.

James 2:1-26

1 Brethren, haue not the faith of oure LORDE Iesus Christ ye LORDE of glory in respecte of persons. 2 Yf ther come in to yor copany a ma wt a golde rynge and in goodly aparell, & ther come in also a poore man in vyle raymet, 3 & ye haue a respecte to him yt weareth the gaye clothinge & saye vnto hi: Sit thou here i a good place, & saye vnto ye poore, stonde thou there or sit here vnder my fote stole: 4 are ye not parciall in youre selues, and haue iudged after euyll thoughtes? 5 Harken my deare beloued brethre. Hath not God chosen the poore of this worlde, which are ryche in faith, and heyres of the kyngdom which he promysed to the that loue him? 6 But ye haue despised the poore. Are not the rych they which oppresse you: & they which drawe you before iudges? 7 Do not they speake euell of that good name after which ye be named. 8 Yf ye fulfill the royall lawe acordinge to the scripture which saith: Thou shalt loue thyne neghbour as thyselfe, ye do well. 9 But yf ye regarde one person more then another, ye comit synne, and are rebuked of the lawe as trsagressours. 10 Whosoeuer shal kepe the whole lawe, and yet fayle in one poynt, he is gyltie in all. 11 For he that sayde: Thou shalt not commit adulterie, sayed also: thou shalt not kyll. Though thou do none adulterie, yet yf thou kill, thou art a transgresser of the lawe. 12 So speake ye, and so do as they that shalbe iudged by the lawe of libertie. 13 For ther shalbe iudgement merciles to him that sheweth no mercy, & mercy reioiseth against iudgment. 14 What a vayleth it my brethre, though a man saye he hath faith, when he hath no dedes? Can faith saue him? 15 If a brother or a sister be naked or destitute of dayly fode, 16 & one of you saye vnto them: Departe in peace, God sende you warmnes and fode: notwithstodinge ye geue them not tho thinges which are nedfull to the body: what helpeth it them? 17 Euen so faith, yf it haue no dedes, is deed in it selfe. 18 Ye & a man might saye: Thou hast faith, and I haue dedes: Shewe me thy faith by thy dedes: and I wil shewe the my faith by my dedes. 19 Beleuest thou yt ther is one God? Thou doest well. The deuils also beleue and tremble. 20 Wilt thou vnderstode o thou vayne man that faith with out dedes is deed: 21 Was not Abraham oure father iustified thorow workes when he offered Isaac his sonne vpon the aulter? 22 Thou seist how yt faith wrought with his dedes, and through ye dedes was the faith made perfect: 23 & the scripture was fulfilled which faith: Abraha beleued God and it was reputed vnto him for rightewesnes: and he was called ye frende of God. 24 Ye se then how that of dedes a man is iustified, and not of faith only 25 Likewise also was not Raab the harlot iustified thorow workes, when she receaued the messengers, and sent them out another waye? 26 For as the body, with oute the sprete is deed, euen so faith wt out dedes is deed.

Revelation 7:9

9 After this I behelde, and lo, a gret multitude (which no man coulde nombre) of all nacions and people, and tonges, stode before the seate, and before the lambe, clothed wt longe whyte garmetes, and palmes in their hondes,
