    Lines in red are taken from the most well-known work of Richard Hooker an Anglican priest and a theologian, titled Of the Lawes of Ecclesiastical Politie So to understand the meaning of the words one has to read the text and interpret according to matter whereof they are uttered.
    The lines in blue are from the holy Bible which have deeper meaning and should not be interpreted literally.
