Excerpt from The Protestant, Vol. 4: A Series of Essays on the Principal Points of Controversy Between the Church of Rome and the Reformed

It is the reading ofthe law and testimony that occasions so much anxiety and alarm among modern Papists. They conceive that al' would be safe, if every thing were left to the word-of-mouth teach. Ing of their priests, for then care would be taken that nothing should be promulgated that might be prejudicial to their church; Thus they try to evade the force of what is contained in the lxxviii. P~alm, by maintaining that it does not contain a word about read ing. Very true: but then what was the use of writing it P Thefact, that the psalm was written for the use of the -people, necessarily Irnplies that it was to be read by the people, else the writing of it was needless. If all religious instruction was necessarily to be oral. As Mr. Andrews seems to allege, the'n David should havemerely recited the psalm to the priests, and commanded them to recite it to the people but the simple fact of its being written under divine inspiration, implies the obligation of reading it upon all to whom it is addressed.

I admit, that until the time of Moses, it does not appear that there was any_written revelation of the will of God, and of course no obligation upon the people to read it. The Almighty was then pleased to hold direct communications with the patriarchs, in a manner quite unknown to us; and the Popish priests would have the people to believe that they stand in the same relation to God as the patriarchs did and that their word-of-mouth teaching is entitled to the same respect as that of Noah, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but this proves nothing but the impiety and impudence of these priests; for they are not able to show, by any sign or miracle, that they have received such power or authority and their general character is not such as to induce us to believe that they have more direct communication with heaven than other men.
