“It is against the law of God”

BBC History Magazine - - Tudor Letters -

“It is no small grief to me to per­ceive that theey whom the king’s majesty, my fa­ther (whose soul Good par­don) made in this world of noth­ing in re­spect off that they be come to now, and at his last end put in trusst to see his will per­formed, where­unto they were all sworn upon a book. It grieveth me I say, for the love I bear to them, to see both how they break his will, and whaat usurped power they take upon them, in mak­ing (ass they call it) laws both clean con­trary to his pro­ceed­ings and will, and also against the cus­tom of all Chris­ten­domm, and (in my con­science) against the law of God and his church,c which pas­seth all the rest.
