Excerpt from The Warning of Thomas Jefferson: Or a Brief Exposition of the Dangers to Be Apprehended to Our Civil and Religious Liberties, From Presbyterianism The Confession of Saxony teaches that the word of God in general declare this concerning the power of the magistrate; first, that God wills that the magistrates, without all doubt, should sound forth the voice of the moral law among men, according to the ten commandments, or law natural by laws forbidding idolatry and blas phemies, for well has it been said of old: that the magis trate is a keeper of the law, i. E. Of the first and second table, as concerning discipline and good order. This ought to be their special care (of kingdoms and their rulers), to hear and embrace the true doctrine of the Son of God, and to cherish the churches, according to Psalm ii. And xxiv., and Isaiah xlix., and kings and queens shall be thy nurses, i. E. Let commonwealths be nurses of the Church, and to godly studies.
