their I have demonstrated the absurdity of relying on the who erred muoh more than their Sons in the interpretation of Holy Writ their and Mysticism being known to every student of ecclesiastical That there were glorious examples to the I willingly whoso 0f Peter at Antiooh A Tract for the Rector of J5 the y In nswioU Tun namo of in connection with the important subject of Ohurch has of lato boon rather prominent truths believed in b the whose glory not all the knowledge and learning of the Fathers can But I do not follow the conduct of and fell down and worship I admire and respect I take advantage of their and peruse their various valuable works but I do not pin my faith to think and judge for follow only inspiration for there God and directs it is the mind of else is As to I have already over and over again confuted his sacramental and must decline arguing the subject further with Let in bidding him direct his attention to the following portion of a delivered the other day at by Oanon Glrdlestone The It may be well is not far when acare ful revision of the Book of 0ommon Prayer will have the effect of removing the few Instances In which our liturgy and ritual still seem to as It the unclean thing such as the admixture of the Apocrypha with the Holy the retention of the title of priest instead of the forms of and some rather ambiguous sentences in the services for the administration of bap tism and the Lords as I said considering the peculiar circumstances of the the wonder not that these instances are so but that they are so Touch not the unclean was evidently the rule of the Is it our Augean than ww WV I T WH 1 J V I there is muoh in his views which is deserving of our atten Rylo comments on the difference of opinion be more about truth than we There is no foundation for any such It is a that the most ancient writers in the Ohuroh of Christ are often at variance with one It is a faot that they often changed their own minds and retracted their own former opi It Is a foot that they often wrote foolish and weak and often showed great ignorance in their explanations of It is vain to expect to find them free from InfdUtbiUty it not to be found in the early but in the For another thing let us learn not to put implicit confidence in any mans merely because of his office as a Peter was ono of the very ohiefest and yet he could v This is a point on which men have continually the rook on which the early ohuroh Rylo yet are and deacons 1 What are the of his ownl T I could D it But lit is a wellknown that there has for some and still In ffiecnnroh of Engi a certain instead of taking the above words of the Apostle as their touch the unclean thing as often and as closely as they without making themselves amenable to the law or arraying public

which they construct a piscina or credence the invariable ac companiment of the and over it they rear a crucifix of wood may in order to make the attempt pass more sculp ture a crucifix of one amongst various other images Or is it the service and ritual of a church which they are ordering In prayer the officiating minister studiously turns away from the ThsMT rtAWftV All 1 F tween Paul and and says that if the scriptural record had boon a similar attempt to impose on mankind to that of the strife between the two apostles would never have been but everything done to have shown their From the rebuke which Paul administered to Ryle adduces the three following lessons That great ministers make great That to keep the truth of Christ in His Chwch even more important than to keep the That there is no doctrine about which we ought to be to out 04 justification by faith without the deeds of the On the first of these heads Ryle remarks think what a striking fact this This is Simon Peter I This is the third great error of his which the Holy Ghost has thought fit to record Once we find him trying to keep back our as far as he from the great work of the and severely re Then we find him denying the Lord three and with an Here again we find him endangering the leading truth of Christs Surely we may what is manf The Ohuroh of Borne boasts that the Apostle Peter is her founder and first Be it
