Excerpt from On the First Two Centuries of Christianity: Proving the Incorruptibility of the Catholic Church, by Historical Considerations; Read Before H. E. Cardinal Wiseman and the Catholic Academia of London

"It is no uncommon thing to meet with men of otherwise cultivated minds, who are ignorant of the first elements of religion. If subjects arise foreign to the Church and to the religion of which she is the organ, they are generally not discussed till they have been studied; but as soon as religion is in question all study seems superfluous, and men allow themselves to judge without examination. How often in reading the works of grave and serious writers, but who are hostile, or simply indifferent, to Catholicism, have I stopped confounded, and, as it were, stunned, by the ignorance they exhibit in treating of religious matters." - Laforet.

There are men who refuse to admit the force of arguments in favor of Catholicism, because they have been educated with notions hostile to it. There are others who refuse, because their dearest friends have died in opinions which themselves hold. Can they suppose that the judgment of God on their souls at the hour of death will be influenced by these circumstances? Yet they make their own eternal condition depend on them.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from On the First Two Centuries of Christianity: Proving the Incorruptibility of the Catholic Church, by Historical Considerations; Read Before H. E. Cardinal Wiseman and the Catholic Academia of London The germ was revealed, the development would follow. But, besides this, it cannot be supposed that certain rules of discipline were not laid down, and a definite course of action not pointed out. A Church was to be established throughout the whole world; doctrines were to be taught which must be applicable to the entire human race. It must needs be, that a plan would have to be pursued which would insure unity of faith, and exclude, as far as possible, motives for dissension among all members of that Church: and since we know that our Lord promised that the Holy Ghost should bring all things to the remembrance of His disciples whatsoever He had said to them, it is evident that the body of rules for both faith and practice, which had been delivered, was of so complicated a nature as to require supernatural aid to retain in the memory, how far more, then, to explain to others, and to carry into execution. Such being the case, if the very men who had been taught by Christ s own lips, and for so long, required the Divine Assistance in a supereminent degree, for carrying out the work committed to them: it follows that the inter communication between themselves and their newly converted fellow men must have been incessant.
