Read the speech James I made to Parliament in 1609.
The state of monarchy is the supremest thing upon earth, for kings are not only God's lieutenants upon earth and sit upon God's throne, but even by God himself they are called gods. . . .
[Y]ou do not meddle with the main points of government; that is my craft . . . to meddle with that were to lessen me.
What argument was the king making?
