Office it Rumeld Street. The Triumph of truth in the conversion the Rev. J. A. Mason from the errors of methodism to the Catholic Faith. Fri ten by himself. Continued from Page 241, to. 31. M do not seo what necessity there is for the t Hris Ian Church to be Init Lille hire than the patriarchal or jewish churches and i least of nil. See that this infill ibid it is possessed by the Catholic be know the patriarchal Church cried the jewish Church erred and we know the Catholic Church erred. Surprise me. You have Maclaren that the Wisdom of cod would never have revealed his truth without designing to perpetuate it and would never have commanded All to believe it without giving them the Means of knowing it and distinguishing it from error. Now what to this hut infallible knowledge and yet you give up All claim to it among protestants and now see no necessity for it to christians at nil. But i will answer your objection. As to the patriarchs they can scarcely be called a Church because they were under no special covenant before the calling of Abraham but were left to the Light of nature that they erred is nothing to the Point therefore. However god even then always preserved a holy seed and preserved it in a very prominent manner. The jews were indeed a Church and this was established for the preservation of the Law of Moses and the accomplishment of the grand eco Oiny of Many a redemption in the person of the mos Sih and it infallibly answered All these purposes till the Messiah was about to make his appearance. But the Promise of that general and perpetual infallibility was not made to the jewish Church at Best it was Only temporary a Shadow of Good things Toi coins and therefore All the promises and the substance of the covenant regarded the Christian Church. Nevertheless As the jewish Church had an authority that authority was to he obeyed Ayd several punishments were awarded to those who disobeyed and that authority never was extinct till the end of the dispensation. Nor did almighty god Ever cease infallibly to direct it As Lar As the grand object of its establishment was concerned. But the Christian Church stands upon a stronger foundation and is secured by More atop la promises. Lie never said a a i will build the jewish Church upon a Rock and the Gates of hell shall not prevail against he never said a a 1 will give to the jewish Priesthood my spirit and he shall guide them into All truth and shall remain with them always even to the end of the but he has confirmed these Promise to the Christian Church. Indeed whenever the prophets speak of the infallible Char Niter of the Church they always Point to the gospel Church which contrast of itself proves that the same kind of infallibility never was designed to be the character of the jewish Church and they knew it. As to your assertion that the Catholic Church has erred i demand Prool ? m , sir she is known to have added to the word of god and has of traded upon the world her vain and foolish Fop Peries for what she is pleased to Cah divine and ecclesiastical traditions. M she is known to have done so these additions and impositions can he pointed out to me. You can Tell me the time when the manner How the people who first embraced them the troubles they occasioned in the Church what controversies were car ried on and by whom and How they at last prevailed so universally that for a a 800 years and More the whole world became drowned in Damnable idolatry and now or. Mason i bind myself if you can make Good your ground or if i should fail in proving to you that there is no article of Catholic Faith now taught by the Church which article has nut been taught in every age from the apostles time Down to our Day i will immediately renounce my religion. Mason. A you Surprise me Why the doctrine of the real presence was never known in the world before the Days of Bere Garius you prove that 1 can prove the Contr nov by a Host of witnesses. M is now too late and the subject too extensive. I most defer it till another Opportunity. Thus ended our first interview and is parted Good friends. On my Way Home i could not resist the Force of Many arguments which had been produced and i was much plea re with the Christian spirit and gentlemanly deportment of my reverend antagonist 1 had thought n popish priest a compound of three parts part a Man part a beast and part a Devil. A Man in nature a beast in stupidity and tame servitude and a Devil in cruelty and wickedness of disposition. But i had found a Man indeed in nature a gentleman in manners a scholar in refined knowledge and a Christ an in spiritual Wisdom temper and disposition of mind. If however 1 was impressed with or Martynus Superior character and that my cause w As not so Strong As 1 had at first imagined i Durst by no Means doubt of Tny religion nor did i entertain an affection for his. I was willing to think air. Martyn a singular instance and entertained a suspicion that his talents were capable of making a bad cause appear a Good one. He had surprised and confounded me hut had not convinced or converted me. To deny the witness of the spirit in my conscience 1 thought
