Maso Onee a methodist preacher but noir a roman Catholic priest. Continued from Page 177, to. 23. I should be glad if you would go to sec a Roung Man at the Point of death said one to or. C. Is it a fever i believe not. I am afraid it is i do not like to go. Of yes there is no danger. Well Well you can go brother s you will do As Well As i. At length he was persuaded to go but kept As far us possible from the dying Man. Flood heavens and these Are the men specially called by god and who rave and Bellow on every stage against the Catholic How different is this from the spirit and Economy of the Catholic Church she receives but to bestow. The poor instead of paying Are considered pensioners of the Church As far As her Means will permit and it is Well know la that before the Catholic religion was overturned in this country by the wicked King Henry there were no poor rates a but schools were built hospitals endowed and the poor provided for by the and the Fidelity of the Catholic clergy in attending to the sick is proved by the thousands of protestants who seek their Aid in the moment of death. From such a View of the Case we cannot but conclude that however excusable or sincere or. W cloy might have been in changing his religious belief which 1 have Shewn was not the Case there is no excuse for him on the ground of discipline. He knew when he enrolled the 100 preach ers in chancery and when he formed his Chapel deed that he was forming a corporate body and giving them a Public property Independent of the Church of England Independent of All other preachers Independent of the trustees of the chapels und of the stewards leaders and other members of the Quarter meeting. And the right which the conference can legally assume and does assume has been fully demonstrated in the Case of those chapels occupied by the followers of or. Kilham. And How far they Are the Humble servants of the government when their interests appear to them to be in danger May be seen in the Case of lord Sid Raoul s Bill As Well As in the riots of lord George Gordon. Why then my methodist Brethren will you engender and nourish within you a monster that devours your very entrails hut above All i would ask the government the Church of England and All reasonable men of every rank and condition Why do you shake hands with methodism rather Why do you not investigate the system strip it of its dark Angel Mark expose its deformity and raise just barriers against her bewitching dangerous predominating Power again i Sav Why do you not one and All discriminate methodist people calvinists l unitarians quakers All of every sect and name you arc All interested. There is no system in the land so Strong a league so perfect a machinery so secret in its motions so ramified in its Power As the methodist conference it is like a cancer striking its roots in slow but sure progression till the very blood becomes fibrous and the whole body Falls under its Morda Cious influence. You Drc afraid of the Catholic Church while the discipline of this Church is in perfect league with the Constitution of the realm. Her doctrines secure to you the rights of conscience whatever May have taken place under Feudal notions and Feudal tenures for she teaches that no Man can violate his own conscience on any pretext whatever and that no Man can Force another to commit the same violence. And As to the Temporali ties of the Church of England she actually disclaimed and docs disclaim them. But the methodist conference is directly opposed to the spirit and letter of the Constitution and weary of being considered merely a sect unauthorized and in benefited. They Are seeking anxiously seeking the imposition of your hands that they May feed in your pastures. It is a fact indeed of lamentable As it is notorious that the evangelical clergy so called arc either the dupes or creatures of methodism. They can preach at Burch in the morning and go to meeting at night. They Are in league with methodist preachers in All the biblical rant of the Day and make the most prominent figures on the stage of their Public meetings. This reminds me of the fable in which the wolves gave their cubs to the sheep that the sheep might give their lambs to the wolves. Beware i say again and i would Thunder it to the poles beware of the Teeth of methodism morality and influence. However defective methodism Way he in its doctrines and bad in its discipline it might be some palliation if its morality and moral influence were Good. 1 am aware this is the great test which they always produce us a proof of their divine Call to preach the gospel. But i am not aware that the calvinists arc a Jot behind the methodists in morality. I leave out All others because i am Here speaking of evangelical morality 90 called As professed dissenters a it is a True Maxim a bad tree cannot Bear Good fruit nor a Good tree bad fruit and by this test i am willing to try both methodism and catholicism with this just and necessary distinction All fruit that appears Good is not so and All fruit that is called evil is not so. I have proved that methodism is not of god first because its doctrines Are contradictory and its teachers ignorant and contradictory likewise secondly u has Al been
