Before you mislay this booklet, ask yourself the following questions: Four hundred years ago all English-speaking people were Catholic.
Many of the greatest minds of the age'scientists, philosophers, reformers, poets, critics, etc. I do not deny even to murderers the hearing I refuse to the Catholic Church.
I condemn her upon the evidence of her enemies only, and in doing so I forget that men once so condemned Jesus Christ Himself.
Jesus founded a Church to teach all nations and to endure to the end of the world. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: To her teachers He said, 'He that heareth you heareth Me, and he that despiseth youdespiseth Me.
History tells me that she is the only world-wide Church that has preserved her identity, authority, and worship from Apostolic times see pages 15, 16, 17, 18, 19and that she is the only Church founded by the infallible Son of God. Paul tells us that Faith without good works is dead.
When Our Divine Saviour sent His Apostles throughout the universe to preach the Gospel to every creature He laid down the conditions of salvation thus: Here then our Blessed Lord laid down two conditions-Faith and Baptism.
What is this Divine Faith which we must have in order to be saved? It is to believe, upon the authority of God, the truths that God has revealed.
Now, if a man is at liberty to believe any kind of religion, provided he be a good man, then what use for Christ to send out His Apostles to teach all nations? Are men and nations at liberty to reject the teaching of the Apostles?
Therefore, if a man would be saved he must profess the true religion. Now, if God commands me under pain of damnation to believe what He has taught, He is bound to give me the means to know what He has taught.
Has God given us such means. And so say the Catholics. What is the means God has given us whereby we shall learn what He has taught? For if God had intended that man should learn his religion from the Bible, surely God would have given that book to man.
Did He do so? Christ sent His Apostles throughout the universe and said: Christ did not say, sit down and write Bibles and let every man read and judge for himself. That injunction was reserved for the sixteenth century, and we have seen the result of it in the founding of about religions by men, all quarrelling with one another about the interpretation of the Bible.
Jesus never wrote a line of scripture, nor did He command His Apostles to do so, except when He directed St. John to write the Apocalypse 1, 11but ordered them to 'teach all nations.
The Apostles, going forth, preached everywhere the Lord cooperating with them.Click to read more about Judas [short story] by Frank O'Connor.
