Strictures on h Elev s pretended roman catechism pointing out itt numerous misrepresentations false glosses and Gross falsehoods. Addressed to the methodists of Stourbridge and its Vicinity. By the Kev. J. A. Mason Catholic priest of All saints. first. Continued from Page 306, to. 39. Strictures. Secondly protestants themselves believe and practise Many things not written in the scripture As infant baptism sponsors sprinkling instead of pouring or immersion the change of the jewish Sabbath eating blood and things strangled and Swine a flesh going More than three Miles from Home on a sunday and a Hundred other things which belong to Faith and manners. Thirdly that cannot be a sufficient Rule which cannot Settle disputes but leads to false religions and false manners and yet none of the different sects which make the scripture their Only Rule can Settle their disputes All Appeal to it All Are right and All Are wrong. Fourthly that cannot be the Only sufficient Rule which any Man like or. Wesley can corrupt at pleasure for the common people can never detect such corruptions without a guide. We need therefore besides the scriptures the Church of Jesus Christ to be our guide and the guardian and interpreter of the scriptures. A we read a says or. Wesley a of the Faith once delivered to the so do we and a curse against hem who corrupt it and this is precisely traditions and yet they lived and died in the reason Why the Catholic Church teaches this Church and were enrolled by her in the and maintains the necessity of one Faith and Calendar of saints. Just As if saints would live und die in a false Church or the Catho lic Church would honour men who openly condemned her. Bravo we shall have or. Wesley in the Calendar some Day. On the subject of tradition the Catholic Church distinguishes four kinds divine apostolic Al ecclesiastical and merely human traditions or false and visionary legends. Against the latter kind of tradition not Only the holy fathers hut the pastors of the Church with one voice warn and guard us with much greater Escrupulo sity than or. Wesley has done his followers. Witness the curious talks circus condemns a multitude of Dis sentient creeds. Or. Wesley does not like our doctrines of a a transubstantiation the seven sacraments Purgatory Llali communion worshipping of saints and images indulgences service in an unknown Tongue a &.c. I add a neither docs he like the Church to be the pillar and ground of the it appears or. Wesley a likes and dislikes Are very capricious. He does not like one thing in the scripture and he alters it. He does not like other things taught by the Church and he wishes to Reform it. But there Are some things neither commanded to christians by the scrip lated by himself in different parts of his writ Ture nor by the Church Viz. Tithes and ticket Ings some of which arc related with All the Money and Many other such like things j san Froid of True narration in a letters these he likes for an obvious reason. How from the and to the living a mid in the Ever 1 must inform my readers that the a news from the invisible world and that Catholic Church knows nothing of half com bib Litique of cant and deception the a Jmc i unions or worshipping of saints and images tho dist Siag Azine but these things do not in or. Wesley a sense neither docs she invalidate True tradition. Divine traditions Pray in an unknown Tongue. It is but Par Are those which come irom iod and it Christ. Bialiy known i Grant hut it is the most Gen apostolic Al traditions arc those which take Cerully known of any other language. Well their Rise in the teaching of the apostles but these doctrines Are not in tho scripture ecclesiastical traditions Are those which re latino to or. Wesley some of these Points Gard the principles and practices of tho an Are not doctrines at All they Are Only Points client pastors of the Church the successors of discipline changeable at the pleasure of the Church. But some Are doctrines and you say they Are not to be found in the scripture. This i deny As 1 have proved in the a Shaver a a second edition of which is Nowon Sale for the Comfort of or. Jewitt and which i am ready to prove to those who desire to know the truth and who choose to visit me. The next charge is that the Catholic Church holds tradition. And so did or. We Coley or he could never Tell what books were holy scripture or whether there was any holy scripture at All. But he brings Forward several fathers doctors and saints of the Catholic Church As witnesses against the wickedness of their own Church in holding of the apostles. The first regard such doctrines of Faith or ordinances of Christ As he taught to his apostles and by them delivered to the Church but which were never written in the scriptures. The second regard those counsels commands or ordinances which the apostles established by the direction of the Ilov ghost for the Well being of tho Church. Thus st. Paul says at one time a i command yet not i but the at another time a i say not the lord.
