Mason orc 41 method it preacher but now a roman Catholic print. Continued from Page 170, to. 22. Talk of Llic Pope indeed there is much a lore to be feared from the methodist conference. The Pope is the presiding head of the Catholic Church but he is subject to it. Flo cannot make any i tvs even ecclesiastical binding without the concurrence of the body of which he is the head. Much less has he any civil jurisdiction in any country but his own. His Powers arc Well known and Well defined Tut the methodist con Terence is a head quite Independent of the body it is not one old Man but one Hundred and if we take All connected in interest with the conference there arc several hundreds Mctire Tilv designing men in close league and professedly carrying of their affairs in secret. It is True at present they must succumb a Little to preserve their authority and get the Money. But if you my methodist Brethren arc foolish enough in any National calamity to support this body and lilt them into Power to be to you and to be to the nut Ion at Large. wolves they May clothe themselves in the skins of sheep or if or Chettle likes the metaphor better May counterfeit the voice of the dam but they Are wolves still. This is fully seen in the Case of or. Alexander Kilham. This Man at the head of Many others lifted up his voice against this dangerous association. They All sounded an alarm in the Camp for which they were called to an account and ordered to suppress their writings hut they were honest and would not and therefore were expelled the conference and the body and yet strange to Tell no further notice has been taken of this body. Of this number was the famous or. Watson whose opinion on the Priesthood 1 have quoted in this work and who is now figuring away again ill the old association he went with the weak hut he repented and returned to the what caused him to change his Han it st opinions on such Plain subjects is Best known to himself. For the conference to maintain its authority with the people and keep the strings of their purses in their hands it is necessary to persuade them that is ministers they Are sent of god and to Supply the Luck of visible authority to pretend that they Are called by the hidden spirit to preach the hence they arc continually talking of the Grant Good they Are doing. Hut supposing for a moment it is Good that is done i ask who arc they that do it certainly not the conference hat lie Loc Al preachers who arc nothing less in aug sense of the word than the Itin count and nothing different except that they live on their own estates and labour for the people Gratis while the others travel about the country and live on the people. And the local preachers Are notoriously and by far the most laborious most disinterested and most useful. No would methodism have possessed one tenth Pait fits interest or extent had not the local preachers w to made up eleven twelfths of the number in almost every circuit and on whose unpaid labours the conference preachers prowl and feed and fatten at their ease.�?1 say had not this laborious body of men spread themselves Over the country forming congregations and establishing classes methodism would not have prevailed one tenth part so extensively. Truly they May complaint we have Laboured and you have entered on our labours and reap the l Ruit of our toil. What a pit but these men and the Pei Pic had supported or. Kilham. Hut per hips some May think the conference preachers arc the Bishops of the flock and have the care of souls. This however is not the Case. This is what to lick arc now aiming at at least for the nominal dignity and Benefit. They want to he Bishops. For this end it is that or. Watson has stooped 90 Low As even to Upchurch the body and Uniti Istir himself and his co partners they arc willing to acknowledge they arc neither one nor the other and thus proclaim themselves impostors that they May gain both the dignity and Benefit of Bishops. On the death of or. Wesley a number of them tried for this dignity and assembled at , where the to fico suspecting some plot from their mysterious manners and private meetings forced them to Institute a new set of races As i have been credibly informed and of is Welt known to the contemporaries of those times. , 1 am told another it tempt has been made Bill the fact is Liry ate jealous of Cecli other however to a nyc them Bishops would hasten the alarming crisis. If Bishops they would want Temporali ties these they must Honvo either front the established Church or the methodist people the Church would not like the accession and they could not Force their own people w Ihnut Law and to give permanency to their new dignity would he a double inducement to overturn the Church and establish their absolute oligarchy on its ruins and the ruins of the liberties of the people. At present however thank god they arc neither Bishops nor have they the cure of souls. The class leaders take care of the sheep and these men seize the fleece and How moderate they arc How Christian hearted How desirous for the salvation of souls will be seen by a few references. I have already named the Case of a Young Man refusing to pay his class Money to or. Chettle for which to excommunicated him. So no Money no Christian communion. Act
