THUS MUCH CONCERNING INWARD FREEDOM: NOW CONCERNING OUTWARD FREEDOM.
The outward freedom, is that which pertaineth to the outward life. And it is called Christian liberty, because it belongeth to Christians only.
And that is two fold, freedom from the laws of Moses, and freedom in indifferent things.
Freedom from the laws of Moses, is that by which Christians are loosed from the ceremonial, & Judicial laws of Moses, namely, so far forth as they only pertaine to the civil governement under Moses. 1. Cor. 9. 1. 19. 2. Cor. 3. 17. Heb. 9. 10.
For such laws which belong to the law of nature, and by which all nations are bound, are not abrogated.
