... This supremacy, at the restoration of King Charles, was extended to Scotland, and an absolute power granted to the king, to mould the church of Christ according to his pleasure. Upon which, contrary to the oath of God, lying upon himself and the whole land, the whole covenanted work of reformation from 1638, and the obligation of our solemn covenants for reformation, were rescinded by acts of parliament, some of which are not to this day abrogated. Our forefathers witnessed against these things, and many of them sealed their testimony with their blood. Their testimony, for Scotland’s reformation and solemn covenants, has never been fairly adopted by the church of Scotland, since the deliverance God wrought for us at the Revolution; but, on the contrary, a conspiracy has been found among the prophets of our Israel, for burying that testimony, and our solemn covenants for reformation, in utter silence and oblivion.
