Christian Brethren you make the state meet which i am about to quote from. Jour a a testimony a the basis of Many remarks and it is incorporated in your first objection to inter communion. You say a a it must appear to those who consider the 11 matter a palpable inconsistency to extend the privilege to thurs who refuse adherence to her profession or Subj Ottoa to her government and the first evil and irregularity you mention is that a it recognizes the propriety of receiving persons to membership in the Church who do not pro a fess our principles and subject themselves to in answer to this let me quote from a Rob Ert Balmer d.d., late Berwick professor of systematic theology to the United shoes Sion by which you will farther n perceive that United presbyterianism is not no communion on the same foundation with those who have been accounted your fathers in Scotland answering the same difficulty just quoted he says a a this objection has been frequently urged against the system of 1 free a or a open communion a and it is not improbable that some communities who have adopted and acted on that system May have received strangers to occasional Fellowship with undue facility and May have thus created a prejudice against the principle on which they based their pro time. But of All the objections advanced against that principle that now mentioned is the most futile and inept. The truth is that the principle is a two edged sword Jafor while it requires us to admit to the privileges of the Church All whom Christ receives that is All genuine christians it requires us to refuse and to exclude All others. And what More reasonable than that in this instance As in every other we should imitate the example of Christ if the Saor Simental table in the of Huron with which we Are More immediately connected be the table not of this or that Man or party of men but the lords table what More reos Nable than that it should be open to the lords guests and appropriate to them and if this principle be applicable to the private members of the Church will it not equally apply to office bearers ? a a from this principle it follows As a necessary of Rollay that jurisdiction and privilege Are Reni Prowal that no Man is entitled even to occasional communion in Ady Church who does not to a certain extent submit to its control. To that privilege he is admitted Only in Oon sequence of his per boil piety being known to those who add minister its affairs or in consequence of being satisfactorily attested to them by others in whose faithfulness and discernment Eon fid Enoe can safely be reposed. If then by any misconduct he brings his piety into just suspicion or in any Way act unsuitable to his Christian profession he forfeits the privilege to which he had been admitted and can re establish his claim to it Only by decisive evidence of repentance and farther hear or. Balmer a a these principles were virtually recognized by the venerable Ebenezer Erskine and his associates who left the Church of Scotland a Century ago and the practise Here recommended As sanctioned by these principles is merely an Extension of the practise which they avowed themselves prepared to pursue they declared unequivocally that they were ready to hold communion with All the pious members and faithful ministers of that of Huron from which or rather from the corrupt majority of which they seceded. It will naturally occur to almost every Reader that there Are at present May burches in our country both presbyterian and Rodgie nationalist far More pure in doctrine and discipline than the Church of Scotland was then or Ever has been and that it is a far better reason Ture of chaff and wheat As if they were pure chaff. And they who suppose that they Are no gathered together with the bad fish Are not Only Batfish themselves hut have broken the nets of a Jerome in commenting Ori Eph. Ivs observes a a for when instead of Concord in our professions cry out i am of Paul i of apollos a of Cephas we Divide the Unity of the spirit and rend it into shreds a a Eusebius in his narrative of disputes Between the Asiatic and european churches states that Polycarp went from Smyrna to Rome to prevent the communion of the church1 being broken by subordinate differences and succeeded. So that at the request of Anicetoo of Rome he dispensed the lords supper Liue. A that As yet there denominations but. Ind a the fist Ian a Tive feelings of the1 new creature a in regard to one of your numbered evils resulting from open communion viz., that a a it has a tendency to make persons indifferent in regard to divine truth a he would reply 88 follows in part. Inter communion a does not require us to tolerate any opinion or practice inconsistent with vital godliness for it does not require us to receive into the Czuroh or retain in it any who fail to give satisfying evidence of Saint ship perfection is not the attainment of humanity in world and choose what Church they May the persons. Referred to will not find in it a single member who is not chargeable with misconceptions and errors in opinion and with sinful infirmities of temper and conduct. A a see same essay. Beloved Brethren Bome of your enumerated a a evils and irregularities a Only become such in your View from the restrictive principles you adopt but the last one specified has surprised me. You say the prac a Tice for which numerous and excellent writers have expressed a desire for the Unity of the Church a encourages separate Church Quot organizations or sectarian divisions a As it proposes a remedy for the evils of these divisions a a which a contemplates of these divisions a. &e., amp a. Now if this has meaning it appears to be this that you Are the Church and that by occasional communion people Are satisfied without giving up their organizations and joining you the True Church and thus divisions Aie a perpetuated. This is implying a pretension of being the Only Church which is equal to any self exaltation that Quot has Home from any High thu Rehim this Side of Rome. A i roust express an opposite opinion that christians coming together in a judicious Way to Fellowship in the lord s supper and also on other occasions will find that they do not differ As much As they supposed that their differences Are not essential that they Are called in one Hope of their calling and consequently they will when unbiased by sectarian interest and led by the spirit of god he much More Likely to abandon in scriptural divisions and become disciples after the platform of the new testament than after that of your a a to give you a Oase in illustration an aged Man of undoubted intelligence and piety was present in my Church when the lords supper was administered. He Felt that it was the House of god and the table was the lords though he was a member of one of your eur eyes. The invitation to All who a Call upon the name of the lord Jesus a was extended but your Rule forbade participation. During the serving of the first table this aged disciple full of love bowed his head in prayer for divine Grid Anee. The result of it was a determination if the invitation was repeated to go Forward. He so and hearkened to. God More than to Man and such a communion he said he never enjoyed and never would forget for this you would discipline him. But was not he and would not thousands of others in your communion be better adapted by a similar course to exercise that love which is the a a greatest attainment and to do away divisions than to stand on your a testimony a hedged around with rules which threaten a penalty in Oase of joining in any other communion ? supposing we go on each denominator expecting that All the rest will Home Over the episcopalians with their sixth Canon adopted 1850, recognizing a a no Man a As a minister except he a hath had episcopal consecration or ordination the baptists recognizing none As fit for communion unless they have been immersed and you have no Fellowship at the lords table with any who do not use rouses paraphrase As if was called originally by those who adopted it first and Best knew what it was and holding to other Points which Calvin would have called a Petty peculiarities a i ask is the divided Church More Likely to Home together this Way than by free communion wisely tolerated ? a a i speak As to Wise men judge be what i say a or a a a. While you Are a very worthy Branch of the Church Jet if you make the impression on the body of the people connected with you that you Are the Church they will not unite with these whet they consider be part of it. While you Call things by wrong names there will be a want of intelligence necessary to remove a a these divisions a of which you speak too Many like my neighbor who thinks he is very Learned and yet his chronology is so far out of joint As to say that a a if David not make Rouse s version he approved of it Quot written something More than two Hundred years ago. I wish before concluding these letters to Point out fraternally your great mistake and to show that the sentiment and practice of Many great and Good men whom you Revere Are in opposition to it. It consists in drawing out an extended testimony or pro ocasion and then imagining that faithfulness to the truth demands that you can have no communion with any one who will not adopt Romanus a contemporary of the apostles asks the corinthians a a Why do we rend asunder the members of Christ and factious by strive against our own body a and proceed to such a height of madness As to forget that we Are members one of another a and yet these divisions not Lead to separate communions. Cyprian another Early father said a let no one remove from the Church the churches . 43, p. 81. Augustine remarks that a a they who in for holding Fellowship with ministers and Agine that their own denomination is now private individuals that they belong to the clean wheat have flown away from the my apm a occlusive one created Melancthon Drew up the augustan confession it was approved by Luther and other divines and subscribed by Calvin it declares that a a for the True Unity of the Church it is sufficient to agree in the Doo Trine of the gospel and the right use of the Henry Alting professor of divinity and a distinguished member of the Synod of Dort raises this problem a a whether the orthodox May lawfully communicate in the lord s supper with the lutherans a he decides that they should and besides other reasons because the Best divines of the reformation have approved it.

A thus you see your sentiments differ from the fathers and your practice from the reformers. They differ from Jeremiah Whitaker and Richard vines and other members of the Westminster Assembly. Are Adverse to those of Richard Baxter John. Howe or William Bates or. Owen or. Manta a Thomas Borton Matthew Mead Joseph Alleine and Many others who have published. On Unity and communion a plan of duty opposite to your prescribed course. I wish you would carefully and prayerfully examine the a a plea of or Mason and read the kind letters of or. Dickey on communion excellent men who withdrew from you chiefly on account of your close communion plan. The motto of All these worthy men was substantially that of Jeremiah Burroughs which when translated is a a variety of opinions and the Unity of those who hold them Are not the aphorism of wit sins was their a. A a in things noes sary let there be Unity in things not necessary Liberty in All things Charity the Rule Laid Down by the apostle Paul Phil Iii 15, 16, was followed by them. A let us therefore As Many As be perfect be thus minded and if in any thing be be otherwise minded god shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless Hereunto we have already attained let us walk by the same Rule let us mind the same things.�?�. In the modification of your testimony in shortening the Creed and lengthening the decalogue your Prosperity As a Branch of the Church will be promoted. And you will be prepared in to operation with other parts of the lords hosts to make inroads upon he common enemies of of our common ving. The lord Jebus Christ. Certainly , you will not refuse to commune in heaven. Your Friend Cyprian. Board of foreign missions. Mission House new York 1 september 27th, 1858. J Rev. And dear sir a the executive committee desire to Lay before you some statements concerning the foreign missionary work of our Church to which they respectfully solicit your the 1st of april when the last annual report of the committee was prepared Many matters of deep interest have occurred. Among these enumerated jes in the ranks of our missionary Brethren the Progress of their great work the general aspect of the missionary horizon abroad and. The provision made at Home for the support and enlargement of the missions. Alt of these you will recognize As vital matters in the foreign missionary work. The labourers in the Distant missionary Fields Are nearly the same As were mentioned in the annual report. The committee Are glad to state that no instance of bereavement has occurred although an esteemed missionary with his family from China has had to withdraw from his Post for a. Season on account of impaired health and another has decided not to return to India at least for on account of his wife a health several of the labourers among the indians one of them. A minister have also found it necessary to leave work for a time in order to recruit their strength. On the other hand a minister and his wife have returned to Cariseo with improved health another has returned to India under the painful trial of leaving his beloved family tor Christ s Sake. Beside these a minister and his wife have gone to India a minister and Bis wife have gone to new Granada and a minister and his wife and several teachers have gone to different stations among the indians All of whom Are new labourers. The missionary work abroad has not been standing still. Each Mission hashed its own labors discouragements and signs of Progress. It is not easy in a Brief space to Mark the general character of a work that embraces so Many different tribes and people Bat the committee Are thankful to be Able to believe that there has been and still is much in the general state of the missions to encourage their own Faith and that of their Christian Brethren. It is a cause of thankfulness that All the labourers in the different Fields Are engaged in their work feeble health has not prevented some of them from using important Means to enlighten those who Are perishing for Lack of vision wars and rumours of wars have not been permitted to Kinder others from continuing or resuming their labors. And these varied labors have not been without a witness from on High that they Are approved of god. More than eighty hopeful converts among the indians in Africa at Buenos Ayres and in. India have been reported to the committee since the annual report was printed. I closely connected with these encouraging i facts is the cheering Prospect As to the fun red fit Ture which gos of a his wonderful Providence is spreading Rishi fore the Faith and almost the right it by his a Temple. While die co raging things re some of the Indian missions in thenry to lowest most of the missions to the to be a enjoying Umi sual tokens off i Rork setae of the holy spirit.

Ter rib to storm is evidently passing away leaving shy Ato the sins of future Progress Are More favourable than at any former time. The sacred duty of our Church to fill up the broken ranks of our Brethren is Dot yet performed Audiat least for ministers should be sent Forth without much delay. Siam is an open Field if yet an unfruitful soil and the labourers old and new pursue their work in. Faith. More missionaries Are needed in this country. And what shall the committee say of Chinatti the events of which information has been received within a few weeks Are such As a few years ago a would. Have been deemed incredible. It. Is now settled under. The provisions of treaties which will no doubt be enforced that missionaries Shal Ybave safety in every part of the Empire Ardithe native professors of the Christian religion shall not be . Thus is the Wall of aeolus on. Thrown Down tand the vast population of this country embracing More than one third of the human family May soon hear the voice of the gospel Herald if the Church will but arise in the strength of her lord and eater the door which he has set open before her. The committee earnestly desire to Send Forth at least six ministers to reinforce the missions in this Japan also seems to be almost ready to adopt a Liberal policy toward other nations the result of which will be that soon the mis Ion Aries of Liflie Grpss and not of the Crucifix will be permitted to live and labor in Tai amp interesting country a. Indeed it. May be affirmed without extra a Gance in reference to the countries which contain the great masses of Heathen that never before has the world been so completely open to missionary efforts As it is at hour. 5 a a the committee a would now respectfully but earnestly ask your attention to the pro-1 vision made or in preparation by our churches for the support and enlargement of this work. Here they recall with gratitude to god the fact that notwithstanding the severe pecuniary pressure of last year the receipts of the Board from the Cut urotes were larger than Jib any previous Yaj Felux they also rejoice in the pm re Jesion the a spirit of prayer and deep sym Palby or our missionary Brethren and their. Work has been extensively called Forth by the solemn events of the last year. They cannot however resist a be Elm of no Small anxiety in the View of two things on the . One is the extremely Small number of labourers that Are offering their services for the missionary work. This is shown by the fact that so few of our Brethren in the ministry and especially of those who have entered on their work during the Tost year have been led to devote themselves to missionary labor. The committee make the statement with great concern that in two years nine ministers have been taken permanently and three More for a season from missions in Africa India 1 and China and not counting those who have returned in. That time to these missionary Fields but two Neu ministers have gone Forth to Supply the places left vacant. This is indeed a statement of most painful interest. It shows the of Huron to be Retro grading instead of going Forward in the great matter of supplying ministers of the gospel for upwards of six Hundred millions of souls. Surely there is reason to ask that the churches called to fervent prayer to the lord of the Harvest that labourers sent into the Harvest. I the other discouraging thing is that in so Many of the churches no collections Are made for the support of the cause of missions a the whole number of churches from which contributions were received last year was one thousand six Hundred and seventy Dine out of three thousand three Hundred and Twenty four churches connected with our body. In connexion with this the committee have to state with much regret that the donations received from the churches from the 1st of May to the 1st of this month Are but 820,967, which is a less sum by the amount of ?4,608 than was received in the same period last year. The aggregate receipts to the 1st of this month Are $8,399 less than the receipts in the same months of last year the committee Are led to believe that in widely extended regions of the country it is extremely difficult to make Quot the usual collections so severe is the continued financial pressure in other regions this pressure is believed to be passing away a but there need be no doubt As to the ability of oar Christian people greatly to enlarge their foreign missionary work. A general Effort to support it would certainly place the Treasury in Possession of ample Means for enlargement. The committee feel some degree of embarrassment As to saying anything further on the subject. They feel that this great cause belongs equally to their Christian Brethren in the ministry and laity of the Church As to the self. They also feel at times greatly discouraged at the apparently slow Progress of a missionary spirit in our highly favored churches. They would very gladly Transfer their Trust to the hands of other Brethren if thereby the missionary cause might obtain a More general and Liberal support. But while standing in their lot they Canna t but earnestly plead for the Hearty of operation of the churches. It is for the Saviour and , they would make this plea and for the salvation of the perishing souls of men. It is in thankful acknowledgement of the fact that our Jie loved Church is indeed on the fulfilment of Iier lords great Trust the gospel for the world it is in grateful remembrance of some growth and. Progress from year to year in the liberality of our churches toward this cause it is in View of past deliverance granted to oar missionary Brethren and of most signal proofs of gods Blessing upon their labors and it is in the face of the wonderful providences now passing Over the Earth and preparing the Way for greatly increased missionary labor that the committee would regard this cause and would commend it to the Earnest consideration of their Brethren in All the of Arches of our body. In doing this they would express the Hope that there a greatly increased missionary Spint in our communion and they would ask that much prayer offered for the Blessing of god upon this work of his Churchy. With this Brief statement of the Case dear sir the committee would leave it in your hands. No other person can at All so Wal bring it before the congregation As the a respected a minister of the a Chyroh 11 and they be amp to chrisrian5regaids, a ii Best wishes for your usefulness in he work of the ministry.

London october 1st, 1858. The confessional investigation at Boyne Hill has ended in a manner somewhat Peculiar a it was undertaken by an eminent Chaney lawyer and two other gentlemen under to them As his a trusty and Well beloved a by the Bishop of Oxford to the inquiry turned upon the Point whether or West or. Gre Sleys curate had addressed to a married woman questions of an improper character and inconsistent with his character and duty As a Clergyman. The woman herself was examined and Cross examined by or. Coleridge an eminent barrister and son of Justice Coleridge the father recently retired from the Bench amid the Universal and tearful regrets of the bar and deservedly was he esteemed As. The very Model of an engl so judge with a judicial reputation As unstained As the his shoulders. But or. Justice co ledge favors the Trao tarian school and Hisson was selected by or. Gresley and the Bishop in the background to abuse the times and the Rev. John Shaw and mrs. Ellen the lady who had rebuked met a Seu More than this he Cross examined tto wit fan a to whom the que Stihl to vat a urged Fig have a been addressed and he also called witnesses As to her character for purity and truthfulness. The result was that she Wab justly found to be unworthy of credit if judged by her moral character and also by exaggerations of what or. West had said to her. It came out however that he had a regular system of going through the decalogue one commandment after another with every sick person whom he visited and thus very ridiculously he put around of questions on one commandment As to secret feeling while its outward violation was previously Well known to him. It was an exhibition of Folly so absurd that the country laughs with the times at the whole affair while at the same time the system itself so pursued and pleaded for by an increasing number of the clergy excites alarm and indignation. Or. Poole late of st Barnabas expresses himself enthusiastically in favor of the confess ional in a letter to some admirers in the North of England who had sent him an address of condolence on his suspension by1 the Bishop of London of which he still complains As unjust it is alas too evident that womanizing principles and practices Are making rapid Way. Not that the great mass of the people Are Likely to be tainted but there Are parishes and districts where tract Arian clergy have entire Sway and where the results of. Their schools and training must Tell on a considerable body of the next generation. A Check undoubtedly is put on the confessional system by its exposure at least so far As to make the very idea of the possibility of a priest entering into families As a a spiritual More hateful to englishmen.

Depend upon it sir a summary Way of disposing of such customers is most satisfactory to All concerned and saves a world of trouble. A a yours truly there is no doubt that a free press with wit banter and barbed satire tip to keep up a healthy hatred of print Tram and so the cardinals in the c of tons of the same witty serial appears this week on a platform blk to Back with a famous Singer Madame Piccolomini. The one m his Robes is addressing an Irish mob the other is appearing before an equally enthusiastic London gathering and the Index words beneath Are a twin stars or the rival apropos of music versus the Cardinal a ridiculous contretemps took place at the dinner Given to him in Waterford.
