§V .—II. Badness in respect of Matter.
§VI .—III. Badness in respect of Form.
§VII . Of the Badness of this Formulary in respect of Matter, the Framers of it were conscious.
§VIII . Of the Badness of this Formulary, in respect of Faithfulness, Matter, and Form, the Imposers of it on the Schools are conscious.
§IX . The Religion thus taught by the Rulers of the Church of England, is not the Religion of Jesus.
