So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me.
When Dr. Rowland Taylor was brought before Gardiner, Bishop of Winchester, the bishop asked him how he durst look him in the face, and if he knew who he was. "Yes," replied the doctor, "I know who you are — Dr. Stephen Gardiner, Bishop of Winchester, and Lord Chancellor, and yet but a mortal man, I trow. But if I should be afraid of your lordly looks, why fear you not God, the Lord of us all? How dare you look any Christian man in the face, since you have forsaken the truth, denied Christ, and done contrary to your oath and writing? With what face will you appear before Christ's judgment-seat and answer to your oath against popery in King Henry VIII.'s time and in the reign of King Edward VI., when you both spoke and wrote against it?"
