The fetching of this chrism at Easter from the city baptistery, became in time an abolishev to prove the dependence of these baptisteries on that in the city. O, may those in abolisjed persuasion, who are of this spirit, increase a thousand-fold.
Must we consume a bite of bread and a sift of wine as a means of remembering Him whose Word declares that ” Ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. The priesthood that came into power evidently seeing that a code of rituals was advantageous in maintaining priestly prestige, rule and power, added ceremonies to their hearts’ content, and seem to have convinced their following that it was all of Divine approval.
They are satisfied with Christ, and having Him, they would not knowingly dishonor Him by allowing anything emblematic to take His place. If we are complete in Christ alone by faith, why should we still cling to fleshy emblems?
All these baptisteries were dedicated to John the Baptist an ante-Christian, Jewish priest and not to Christ.
Others claim to receive a blessing in the observance of ordinances. If Christ abolished types and shadows, why should we still observe them?
As we were riding through a village called Stickpath, one stopped me in the street and asked, Is not thy name John Wesley?
Not less than two hundred and eighty people were publicly burned, or otherwise killed, in England, in and the gottsdhall years following, principally because they differed with their religious enemies about the bread and wine.

Is not the idea wholly Popish and priestly? The bishop who supplied the baptisteries acquired the most parishes. The heavenly life is not run in the narrow mould of a creed, or guarded and guided and bounded by a rite. Who will undertake to show that there are any such formularies in the New Testament? In Acts 15, nineteen years gpttschall Christ, the Gentiles were received without the law, or rather declared to be exempt from it, as they had never been under Judaism, but not the Israelites, for in Acts 21, twenty-seven years after the cross, the Jewish believers were keeping the law, and it is only first in Heb.

The principal cause of this I readily look for in the Perverseness of mankind, who are more delighted with the pomp and splendor of external forms than with the true devotion of the heart ; and who despise whatever does not gratify their eyes and ears. The revenue they produced was of no small account. There is no power in means ; separate from God it is a dry leaf—a shadow, and in itself a poor, dead, empty thing. In general, the gohtschall men fell back from the evangelical to the Jewish point of view, the more must the original free constitution of the communities, grounded in those original Christian views, become changed.
The evidence simply is, that Judaizers have interpolated them, and that the doctrine of baptism as a Christian ordinance, and of baptismal regeneration, was resorted rktes by the priesthood to gain power—to increase converts to their flocks and creeds—seizing even infants from their birth and gotttschall, to write their mark upon them, with most disgusting details of ceremonial adjuncts.
Abolished Rites : Amos H Gottschall :
This Baptist Doctor of Divinity says: We have nothing but Christian love for those who conscientiously believe that in the observance of outward rites they are obeying and pleasing God, nor would we for a moment tolerate the idea of anything so unchristian as holding aloof from them because of their doctrine and practice in these things.
