Plain Reasons Against Joining The Church Of Rome

by Richard Frederick Littledale

Condition: Good-/None

This book is an antique and is in good condition.The previous owner's stamps and mark are on the inside front cover. The inside pages are tanning.

This book makes no attempt to cover the whole area of the controversy to which it relates. Indeed, as Roman disputants are perpetually shifting their ground, instead of always appealing, as Anglicans do, to the Word of God and the historical witness of the Church Catholic, it would be practically impossible to do that. It is confined strictly to a few practical questions which affect all members of the Church, laity and clergy alike, and omits not only all purely speculative discussions, interesting to theologians alone, but also all matters of which it can fairly be said that Rome and England have any common ground of agreement, however they may differ in details, or in mode of expression. II. It is defensive, and not aggressive in design, and is therefore not addressed to born Roman Catholics, nor does it undertake to measure their responsibility, or to point out their duty. To their own Master they stand or fall. But it is addressed to those who have seceded, or are tempted to secession, from the Church of England to the Roman Communion; that they may see what is the true nature of the accountability with which they are charging themselves in following their own private judgment, rather than the providential order of God; and to remind them of that saying of the Master: "No man, also, having drunk old wine, straightway desireth new; for he saith, The old is better" (St. Luke v. 39).... - Plain Reasons Against Joining The Church Of Rome
