Why should any man have power over any other man's faith, seeing Christ Himself is the author of it?

One morning, as I was sitting by the fire, a great cloud came over me, and a temptation beset me, and I sate still? And as I sate still under it and let it alone, a living hope rose in me, and a true voice arose in me which cried:There is a living God who made all things. And immediately the cloud and temptation vanished away, and the life rose over it all, and my heart was glad, and I praised the living God.George Fox
Walkcheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone.George Fox
Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone; whereby in them you may be a blessing, and make the witness of God in them to bless you.George Fox
I told [the Commonwealth Commissioners] I lived in the virtue of that life and power that took away the occasion of all wars... I told them I was come into the covenant of peace which was before wars and strife were.George Fox
