What Scripture doth plainly deliver, to that the first place both of credit and obedience is due; the next whereunto is whatsoever any man can necessarily conclude by force of reason; after these the voice of the Church succeedeth (Hooker, Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity V:8:2)

Scripture with Christian men being received as the Word of God, that for which we have probable, yea, that which we have necessary reason for, yea, that which we see with our eyes, is not thought so sure as that which the Scripture of God teacheth (Hooker, Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity II:7:5)

Who could have deduced three equal legs, or three equal anythings, from the above?
