The object is to explain diff us and defend the principles of the one Holt Catholic and apostolic Church. . 75, Kilby Street 1n Earnest Appeal of the Rev. 1. A. Mason Onee a methodist preacher but now a roman Catholic priest. Continued from Page 1-i5, to. 19. To decide this Point let us with a candid and upright mind recall the before mentioned test of truth and try methodism by it. The test i have Laid Down is this a a if the Christian religion he of god it must be uniformly the same and if it be revealed for the use and Benefit of Man lion the Sutney reasons which induced the divine doing to reveal it at first must induce him to preserve it in such a manner thut it May be infallibly identified and distinguished Iron 1 will not swell my Bouk by proving this proposition because it is almost self evident should any person have the Hardihood to deity it it will then be time enough to set about the labour of proving it. The above proposition reduces itself to the following Points ris uniformity of doctrine and the perpetual visibility of the authority of teaching it. 1. The doctrine of the Christian religion must be uniform or unchangeable. Gleason says so the holy scriptures say so a there is one i it Ord one a a if i or an Angel from heaven teach you any other gospel than that you have already received let him be is methodism thus uniform or unchangeable observe i do not ask you whether or. Wesley was sent of god or where was truth taught and Practised before lie began his career this i will wave for the present. My question is Short. Is methodism uniformly the same it is not. Not a soul of you dares say it is. On the contrary one of your pre culters in cum Putin with two Oiler preachers in a regular disputation frankly declared a a methodism is not now what it was when i was a Hoy Ami it will not be what it is now in the Days of my this was speaking like a Man and every one knows it to be the truth and must yield to him the just tribute of Candour and honesty. And indeed Why should we re quire that of the children which the father did not Tench or practise How can methodism be uniform while its founder was not so or. Wesley him sell was As changeable As the wind. At first Aller he had turned his attention to religion lie was a staunch Church of England Man both in Faith and discipline and a severe stickler for her re tricks. No sooner does he meet with Peter Boh Lorthan he becomes a moravian and imbibed Trio spirit Ami errors of ibis Bis spiritual father and guide. Hut lie soon found that the a a poor sinner ship and the Lamb s imputed righteousness a were contrary to the doctrine of the Hible and the sense of the holy ghost. He was now tossed on a sea of uncertainty and veered with contending winds now towards the Shore of calvinism then to the coast of his native land and again he is cast on the wide Ocean without Pilot and without rudder. Having now fallen out with the Church of England Peter Holder and George Whitfield the calvinist he takes up his Hible and begins to form a religion for this poor Man was a heavy task. He puts together and pulls to pieces. At one time this is the sense of the holy ghost and he preaches it with nil his might. At another time he has been quite mistaken the holy ghost meant quite a different thing and he flies in haste to alter his Creed and that of his people. Hence in the conference 1744, he asks a a have we not leaned too much towards calvinism answer. We Are afraid we have. Wherein in regard to Many a faithfulness. We have received it As a Maxim that a Man is to do nothing in order to justification nothing can be More false a a Here my Brethren you see that he and his preachers under him had received and taught a doctrine As the truth of god than which nothing can be More false. Lie then Calls upon them to review the whole affair 1.1. The religion they had been teaching and which had been As false As any thing could possibly be. He now begins to teach the truly Catholic doctrine a that Man is to work for eternal upon this doctrine of Merit he remarks a a As to Merit itself of which we have been so dreadfully afraid we arc rewarded according to our works Yea because of our works How does this differ from a a for the Sake of our works a and How differs this from secundus Merila per uhf let him that can split the la Pon the doctrine of calvinism which he had formerly taught he says a a All the devices of satan have done far less towards stopping this work of god than that single during All the time he professed to be a True son of Trio Church of England and consider the rest of the regular clergy to be ignorant of their duty he kept up a Shew of regard for her worship and commanded his preachers not to preach in Church hours except when the Clergyman was immoral or taught Arian Sochi inuit or other pernicious doctrines but then he made himself his preachers or any one of their hearers both accusers and judges in the Case. To those who accused him of setting up Lay preachers and opposing the authority of the regular clergy invading their office and destroying the Unity of the Church he by a cunning sophist pretended that he was collecting them to the Church although it was evident to All that lie Wils establishing a sect Independent of its authority. As to Bis preachers he unequivocally declared that they were Mere laymen and Only pretended to Call sinners to repentance in a similar Way As it is the duty of every Man to
