W e have also many authorities, from which it is manifestly gathered that a person ought to stand when the Gospel is preached ; as, for instance : ' Jesus stood on the shore " and, again, ' Jesus stood still and called them ;' 6 8 and, again, ' He stood in the midst of you whom ye know not.'6 9 And, again, after his resurrection, confirming the Apostles, and preaching, 'Jesus stood,' it is said, ' in the midst of the disciples, and said, peace be unto you.'6 0 These people too hold not the position of one giving judgment, but of one making answer ; and it is the Lord that ought to sit, to whom all judgment has been given by the Father. As for these people, they do not judge, but are judged. Nor has there been granted to them the mystery of preaching in the churches. Indeed, these are heretics, such as Saint Paul foretells that there shall be, saying, 'Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived ;' 8 1 aa also ' The time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables ;' 6 2 and, ' From which some having swerved, have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law ; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.'63 Indeed, it is the duty of the prelates of the Church to punish the disobedience of these persons, and to correct it before all men. Wherefore, the Apostle says, ' Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.'6 1 Saint Paul says, also, to the prelates [of the Church] : ' Having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience.'6S And, ' That ye may be able to convince the gainsayers.'66 And, 'These things speak, and exhort and rebuke with all authority.'c: Also, I have ' delivered such an one unto Satan, for the de 5 7 St. John xxi. 4.
