Tour's, C. ADAME. 1. The oldest Fathers of the Church cull the contents of the Symbols* of the first four centuries, " reyula fidei," (Rule of faith.) 2. This rtgula fidei is no extract of the Books of the New Testament. 3. This rtgvla fidei was in existence before any Book of the N- T. was written. 4. This reffvla ftdei is older than tbe Church, f 5. Not only tbe first Christians during the life of the Apostles, but also all subsequent Christians of the .first four centuries, considered this reyulafidei a sufficient doctrine of Christ. 6. This rtjrula fidci, therefore, is the rock upon which the Church of Christ has been built, and not the Bible.I 7. This reffula fidei it the rock upon which the Church of Christ has been built, and not Peter and hit nteeeisori J 8. The Books of the K T. which our canon contains, have been unknown to tbe first Christians, and the single pieces of the Tbe beautiful principles of lore and kindness, as.

T., which thej knew, were n<«ver of such an authority with them as they are with some of us, after the time of Luther. 9. The laymen of the first Church were not allowed to r«ad these tingle pieces, at least not without permission of the presbyter who preserved them. 10. It was considered DO small crime. on the pirt of the laity if they believed more in the written word of an apostle, than in the living word of their Bishop. 11. This regula fidei wsj the test, by whicb tbe books of the apostles were examined. Those most in conformity with the retrula fidei were selected, and those less, were rejected, though {written, or pretended to have been written, by apostles . 12. The Christian religion, during the first four centuries, has never been proved, but only explained and confirmed by the Scripture, f 18. It cannot be proved, that the apostles and evangelists have written their books, ID order to reveal the whole Christian religion j robed Sectors, since the world' began'; Man- kindjbas,-bad.enoughof -musty creeds and tinselled nothingness; enough of hollow: forms and 'fashionable ceremonies; enough" of the husks and shells that have been thrown from theological tables, by bishops, prelates and church dignitaries. , When Mr. Btchmorr.l accepts a creed, fashioned by bishops, to be his entire faith, and that the same is a finality, he simply acknowledges that he never expects to become any wiser.

God is the author of all true religion. All good thoughts, words and acts, are the legiti. mate fruit of religion. Everything whicb tends to build up society in virtue and holiness, if from God. Everything wUich teud* to debase man and society, around him, is not of God. we have no yDU 1 uoteftte CJijuroh Fathers with a show of lemming which implies that no one elae U fs- mtliar vrith tbtm.j sir.

The question is not whether it is fotsible to account for tin mistake by applying human ingenuity to It. The point is this: If these records are the Word of God, how b U that mistakx* occur in them which u«ed Purity in man before t->e fall, was the direct gift of God. Jesus 01-• 1st, as a Savior, was not then known. Tb • e was no need of a redeemer for man, for !<• was yet pura Man transgressed a Divine Law, and fell from a state of holiness tost st.i ta of sin.

The authenticity of the reirula fidei can much easier and better be proved, than that of the books of the Sew Testament. 16. It U more correct, to found the divinity of the rtgulafidei npon itSvButhenticity, which Is undoubtedly proved, than to found the inspiration of the New Testament upon its authenticity .whichSs that doubtful step that renders the Btbliotheoary (Leasing) so discontent with all new fashioned proof* of the truth ofthe Christian religion. 17. The books of the apostles were even not considered as authentic commentary of the rtffula fidei during the first centuries. 18. The whole ralue of the apor' 'V writings, in relation to the dogma, U no oiu«r than that they take the first rank among the writings of the Christian teachers, but they are not the sources of the reirula fidei. 19. What these writings contain more than is contained in the retfula fidei, can be true or untrue, can be understood so or so These theses, says Leasing, have been collected after a careful and repeated reading of the Fathers of the Chnroh of the first four cen tnries, and I am willing to submit them to the most searching examination of the most learned theologian. He who has most read about this matter could have no other sources than I. He who has most read cannot, therefore, know more than I; and it is,by no means true, •that in order to look to the bottom of these things, so deep and extensive a knowledge U required, as some believe, and some would like to persuade the worl d.

Christ's -dally walk was among the poor and^edy, among the pleblsns of earth. He Visited the sick andi the distressed, bared the diseased and afflicted, whispered consolation 'to the troubled. He sought to ^elevate the-unfortunate. " Mind not the high things ofllfe, but condescend to men of low estate," were the 'words of tfej Apostle.
