Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1887 Excerpt: ...' baptismal formula' is indispensably necessary to the right celebration of Christian baptism, then the Apostle Paul, on this occasion alone, caused twelve baptisms to be wrongly conducted, to say nothing of the multitude of cases elsewhere of the same erroneous character.

No candid Episcopalian or Presbyterian will deny that the motive behind the exclusive devotion shown by their churches to the mistranslated text in Matt. 28: 19 and their consequent disparagement of the apostolic practice, is the support presumed to be furnished by the said text to the Athanasian Trinity. But that support is the slenderest imaginable. John, the second son of Gerard Cauvin, or Calv1n, was born in July, 1509, at the diocesan city of Noyon, in the north of France. Gerard was secretary to the bishop, notary apostolic and procurator fiscal, a man of ability and in excellent repute. His wish was to give his children the best attainable education, and circumstances being favorable, his son John profited thereby to an uncommon degree. He was educated partly at Noyon under his father's strict eye and jealous care, wi...
