Power Under Limiting Control

A Conventicle Preacher before the JusticesA Conventicle Preacher before the Justices

“As the power of the magistrate is not an absolute power which he is at liberty to employ as he chooses, so neither is the right of the elector an absolute right which he is at liberty to exercise as he chooses. Both the one and the other are placed under the limiting control of the Divine Law; and it is only when they are used according to this law that they are used aright.”

– William Symington
