Today most Christians keep Sunday because it has been revealed to us by the[Roman Catholic] church outside the Bible." It is possible second class miracles may be experienced by anyone that God chooses, but second class miracles are always questionable and are of no comparison to the first class miracles experienced repeatedly in the Catholic Church over the centuries. The Popish politicians on the Continent foresaw, of course, that James VI would mount the throne of England; and there is reason to think that the mission of the polished and insinuating but unprincipled Esme Stuart had reference to that expectation.

The ongoing rehabilitation of southern Anglicanism should not obscure the fact that its entanglement with slavery—as much as lay piety and the power of vestries—helped determine the particular features of the colonial Church of England. The Castle of Coburg, on the banks of the river Itz, overlooking the town, was assigned him for his residence. He counselled a moderate and wise course in the pulpit, befitting the exigencies of the age. An actress recently told the Irish Times that the explanation for Samuel Beckett's plays was that ''he was a typical Prod''.

He strongly insisted that the "Word" which he had preached to them, and which he was about to give them in its written form in their mother tongue, must be their great leader. African-American slaves and, after the Civil War, freedmen, were another target of home missions. Thus, both in the north and in the south of the Italian peninsula, the Spanish power hemmed in the Pontiff. So testifies Alesins, who says, "I was myself present, a spectator of that tragedy." [ 9 ] Hovering near that pile, drawn thither it would seem by some dreadful fascination, was Prior Campbell.

This was articulated chiefly in Pauline terms as justification by faith alone, as in the Augsburg Confession: "We cannot obtain forgiveness of sin and righteousness before God by our own merits, works or satisfactions, but receive forgiveness of sin and become righteous before God by grace, for Christ's sake, through faith, when we believe that Christ suffered for us and that for his sake our sin is forgiven and righteousness and eternal life are given to us." Melancthon and all the divines conjured the elector not to think of them.

When Christ came to enlighten the world, the light of Roman and Greek culture was shining its brightest, and for at least three centuries longer the new religion added nothing to its lustre. The Roman Empire tends nearly to its ruin; the Turk has attained the summit of his power; the Papal splendor is fast becoming eclipsed; the world cracks in every direction as though about to fall in pieces." [ 3 ] While so many real dangers disturbed the age, a spurious or doubtful one had wellnigh precipitated the Reformation upon its ruin.

The emperor having released two of the ambassadors, and the third, Caden, having contrived to make his escape, they came to Schmalkald just as the Protestants had assembled there, and electrifying them by their appearance in the Diet, gave a full account of all that had befallen them at the court of the emperor. He was convinced that any Christian could read the Bible and profit from it, but he believed that all, himself included, needed also the instruction of well-ordered preaching.

During Knox's adolescence he could not but be aware of the agitation for an evangelical Christianity abroad in the land. As Modernism made inroads in the larger denominations, small groups of Fundamentalists here and there became disgusted and, rather denominations, quietly withdrew to form independent Bible churches. In 1957, Federal troops had to be employed by President Eisenhower to maintain peace while Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, was integrated.

Some, such as Alexander VI (1431-1503), lived notoriously wicked and scandalous lives. It’s not that I’m trying to say that Christianity, for instance, is inferior to paganism in that, whatever else it has, it lacks the full sense of embodiment of the earlier forms it displaced.
