Mason from Llic errors of methodism to the Catholic Faith. W Ritten Btu himself. Continued from Page 211, to. 27. From the known Zeal Fidelity and perseverance with which or. Murtyn Palm re to fulfil every part of his pastoral duties it May he expected that he would net suffer so favourable an Opportunity of vindicating the cause of truth mid promoting the interests of religion to pass unnoticed and unimproved. I consequently received from him an invitation to meet him at the House of the aforesaid person to discuss the most important of All topics. What is truth Anu where is it to re found i Felt considerable backwardness to meet or. Martyn although i knew very Little of his character at that time hut i considered that the cause of truth the interest of religion the spiritual welfare of my servant qty own Honor and the Honor of methodism were involved i therefore agreed to meet him depending on the Well known Maxim a a that truth to be admired needs Only to be known a and As i believed my religion to be the truth and the Catholic religion a compound of vice and Folly with the Lillile pm my a id and reason for my guide i had Litty doubt of confounding my adversary and placing Tith in so Clear a Light As to silence if not Conven him. This was not the first time a protestant is reckoned without his Host or error been confounded jul it. Presence of truth. The Day appointed for our first meeting w As on Whit tuesday 1818, and on that Day my Rev. Friend and i first knew each other. We entered upon the subject which had brought us together he stating and accepting certain preliminaries. I. That amidst the numerous sects of the present Day it was a Point of the utmost importance to both of us As teachers of opposite religions to ascertain whet is the True Christian Faith and How it is to he distinguished and known. 4. That in pursuing this inquiry both should be candid and place ourselves in a slate of religious Independence on the opinions of men prejudices of education or even on our own preconceived opinions. 3. The moderation calmness and respect for the character of each other should Rule the discussion. 4. That on whatever Side truth was found to that we would adhere. My Rev. Friend took his stand on the very subject which Hud occupied my serious thoughts five years before Viz the Unity and of truth and proceeded to discuss the Rule of Faith. If Jesus Christ he said came Down from heaven to reveal a body of divine truths by the belief of which Mankind were to he saved or by the disbelief of which they were to be condemned no cording to Tomt of st. Matt. Xxviii. 13, s>0, mid st. Mark Xvi. 15, 16. Then there must he some Rule by which All men May be Able to come to the knowledge of this Faith and Eliut not Only initially and obscurely but with infallible certainty i. E. Without danger of being deceived. To this alter some objections on infallible certainty i consented because i conceived Muse if that the Wisdom of god would never hav e revealed his truth without designing to perpetuate it in the same entire manner in which he had first revealed it and would never have commanded All to believe it under pain of condemnation without giving them the Means of knowing it and distinguishing it from error. The next Point was what was the Rule appointed by Christ for knowing this system of truth whether the word of god As contained in the scriptures or the word of god As taught by the Church of god. My Rev. Friend stated the Catholic doctrine upon the subject and defended it by natural arguments supported by Plain passages from the Lolly scripture. The Rule he observed which Jesus Christ had established for the know ledge and propagation of his religion must evidently coexist with it. For where would be the Wisdom of establishing a code of Laws without a Rule by which its meaning might be known and this Rule to find he did while to himself was on Faith he was the Only author Tive infallible Rule necessary for explaining or informing the doctrine he taught and had he continued with his Church so that a final reference could have been made to him in any dispute no other infallible tribunal would Ever have been necessary. But As this was not the Economy of god we find him just before his departure from the world investing his apostles with the same Power and authority with w hich he had been invested by his divine father. A fall Power a said the son of god 11 is Given to me in heaven and on Earth As my father hath sent me so i Send you. Go be into All the world and preach my gospel to every Cie Turc he that believe the shall be saved and he that believe eth not shall to condemned. Going therefore Tench nil nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of die holy ghost teaching them to observe All things whatsoever 1 have commanded you and behold i am with you All Days even to the consummation of the and st.
