He who dares to deny God with his lips, sets up something or other as a god in his heart

Is it not lamentable that the sacred truth of God, consented to by all nations, which is the band of civil societies, the source of all order in the world, should be denied with a bare face and disputed against in creaturely companies, and the glory of a wise Creator ascribed to an unintelligent nature, to blind chance?
