Ratification of the liberty of the kirk of God

Our sovereign lord, now after his lawful and perfect age of 21 years complete, with advice and consent of his estates convened in this present parliament, ratifies, approves and, for his highness and his successors, perpetually confirms all and whatsoever acts made by his highness in the governments of his regents during his young age, or since the acceptance of the government of his realm in his own person, or by his most noble progenitors concerning the liberty of the kirk of God and religion now presently professed and by the laws established within this realm; and that the said ratification be as effectual as if all the said acts were herein expressed, named and numerated; and quashes, annuls and abrogates all laws, acts and statutes, canon, civil, municipal and other ordinances whatsoever made in any times of before contrary or in prejudice of the said true religion and professors thereof.
