John Wnithrop "little speech on liberty"
1.When you see weakness in the leaders you have chosen, you should reflect upon your own weaknesses since you chose them.
2.The magistrates try to govern and judge as best they as can according to God's laws, as well as our own.
3.If the magistrate's error is clearly out of wickedness, he must be held accountable for his transgressions. However, if it is not clear that then the people, who have a covenant with their leaders, need to bear the consequences of the error
4. Natural liberty vs civil: Liberty to do what you want vs. it is a liberty to that only which is good, just, and honest.
-This liberty is maintained and exercised in a way of subjection to authority; it is of the same kind of liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.
5. The best way to preserve our civil liberties is to uphold and honor authority.
