Mason Onee a myth out preacher but now a roman Catholic priest. Continued from Page 1s6, to 21. Another instance similar to those i have Given in reference to love feasts now occurs to my mind in regard to class meeting. An old Leader More venerable for his years and hoary locks than for his Public and private Virtues but who pretended to he sanctified throughout body soul and spirit was fond of making a Parade of this before his class. A a 1 have walked before god a said he a a for these 30 years and have not deviated an hairs breadth from the path of in the course of his examination of his members he Caine to one who had been a member nearly As Long As himself and with much More regular consistency. A a Well and How do matters stand betwixt god and the soul a a alas i cannot say As you have said for i find myself a poor weak creature every Day ready to Start aside from the path of which of these was the most sincere and the Best Christian 1 leave the readers to judge. The scene ended with this same Man wilfully under pretence of religion taking up Money on a Small estate making Over the same property to another person to the injury of those persons who had depended of his a deviating rectitude and he finally died the death of a pauper and Vagabond from All the above reasons class meeting becomes a Mere meeting for religious gossip full of cant phrases common place questions and answers and what is worse proudly ing pretensions to Sanctity. There is nothing in methodism calculated to keep the human passions and affections in no fasting although or. Wesley commanded four Days in the year to be observed As fasting Days yet these arc not observed by one in a thousand and if by one it is quite optional. The preachers neither command nor practise it and the people Are sure to follow their example in this particular. No acts of self mortification this is All popish superstition. No confessions they May Tell what All the world May know but what their Dearest Friend would censure is kept behind the curtain. The class meeting therefore As Well As the love least is a hot bed of Pride hypocrisy and concupiscence. The truly sincere Are often disgusted and perplexed but Are unable to Trace effects to their causes. What the apostle prophesied would come to pass in the latter Days is truly realized a a know also that in the latter Days shall come on dangerous times. Men shall be lovers of themselves covetous haughty proud blasphemers disobedient to parents slanderers incontinent unmerciful stubborn pulled up lovers of pleasure More than god having an appearance of godliness indeed but denying the Power thereof Ever learning and not Able to come to the knowledge of the and st. Jude Speaks the same language a a these men blaspheme the things which they know not and what things they naturally know As brute beasts in these they Are corrupted. To to them for they have gone in the Way of Cain and after the error of Balaam they have for Reward poured out themselves and Hutc perished in the contradiction of Core. These arc Clouds without water carried about by the winds raging Waves of the sea foaming out their own confusion wandering stars for whom is reserved the storm of darkness for Ever. These Are murmur ers full of complaints walking according to their own desires and their Mouth speak ctr proud things admiring persons whatever Springs rom methodism will be a general feature of it. Hence As its doctrines Are made up partly of Catholic truth and partly of their own opinions consequently methodism will be partly Good and partly evil. The preaching of the great doctrines of the Catholic Church human depravity redemption by Christ the necessity of repentance Faith justification and the certainty of death judgment heaven and hell. Such preaching gives to methodism an appearance of Good which deceives hundreds of sincere seekers of salvation into a persuasion that she is the Church of god. But shul Cvar flows from methodism us a system bears the Murks of error deception and impiety described by the apostles in the above cited passages. And How far she inspires just views into her ministers and members the follow ing facts will a Young Man a methodist while railing against the Catholic religion w As asked w Hether he would not embrace it if he knew it to be the truth. A a no a he replied a a 1 would sooner go to a preacher not a Hundred Miles from this place speaking of the author of this Appeal said he should think it no sin to drag him from the altar and murder him and another endeavoured to persuade the person who communicated the fact not to come to the Catholic Chapel because the congregation was poor. Allow different is this from the spirit of the Catholic Church she requires humility subordination self denial mortification obedience to the moral and evangelical Law of god and to the Laws of the country and authority of the civil magistrate whether Heathen or christians whether protestant or Catholic. She teaches that the fabric both of the Active and passive Virtues must be erected on the ruins of Pride self will self interest and self love. Her ministers Are the property of god the Church and the people. They Are literally the servants of the servants of god. No other cares Are allowed to distract their minds no other interests to Divide their hearts. The poor Are equally dear to them As the Rich. No Cabin so loathsome but they Are obliged to enter
