    They forbid us nothing but what is base and unworthy to serve our humors and passions, to make ourselves fools and beasts. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self. The entire Augustinian community in Philadelphia was impacted, including an enclave that had begun recently in Radnor Township. Lorenz Schmidtand from it dates the influence of English deism on German theology.

    Timothy is charged to keep this Commandment till the Appearing of the Lord. These reflections, which occur to every one who in the least considers, must give us a wonderful and surprising sense of the divine goodness, fill us with adoration, transport and ecstasy of which we daily see among contemplative persons remarkable instances and not only force us to express a never-failing gratitude in raptures of the highest praise and thanksgiving; but make us strive to imitate him in our extensive love to our fellow-creatures. That which concerned all, must be knowable by all, for which reason the Apostle says, "That which may be known of God and none can know that which may not be known was manifest in the Gentiles. Augustine's from had conducted mass on the estate and the property was already familiar to many priests.

    Philadelphia: James Porter Senr. New York: Nathaniel Currier at no. And, I think, I may venture to say, that could we suppose God himself to act otherwise, he would then be as unhappy as he now is happy; and his omnipotency could not hinder him from being continually exposed to the reproach of his own infallible Reason. Origen, speaking of the faith of Christians, could not was there anything peculiar in their faith have said, "It is the conformity of our faith with the common innate notions of all mankind, that has given it entrance into the minds of candid and ingenuous hearers.

answer to a late book intituled, Christianity as old as the creation by John Leland Download PDF Ebook

Digital access is provided by Villanova's Digital Library. In February ofFather O'Dwyer gathered the students together and informed them that the school would be closed. Some of the Catholic residents of Philadelphia would flee to the area of Radnor, which was seen as a rural safe haven, thus building and strengthening the Catholic community around Villanova.

And therefore, those who see the consequences of things, describe the Christian Religion as requiring such things only, as considering the relations we stand in to God and one another, are apparently for our good.

When they consider how repugnant it is to the nature of God to give any arbitrary commands, then indeed the force of truth obliges them to declare there's nothing in religion but what tends to the good of mankind; but if at any time they talk otherwise, it is for the sake of such things as either directly or indirectly serve their interest.

Since an arbitrary Christianity as old as the creation book might change every moment, and those things which entitled men to God's favor today, might make them incur his answer to a late book intituled tomorrow. Sufficient instances of this nature I shall give you hereafter, Christianity as old as the creation book I must own, I can't carry this point so far as a learned divine who represents the scriptures more obscure which one would think impossible than even the "Fathers.

If religion in general, and every part of it, was not useful to mankind, there would be no Reason why they should know it more than other animals; who, though they have wonderful talents in many of which they exceed men given them by God for preserving themselves and their species, yet are utter strangers to religion, as a thing wholly useless to them.

In short, considering the variety of circumstances men are under, and these continually changing, as well as being for the most part unforeseen; it is impossible to have rules laid down by any "external" revelation for every particular case; and therefore, there must be some standing rule, discoverable by the "Light of Nature," to direct us in all such cases.

The first classes at Villanova began inbut would be interrupted with the violence occurring in Philadelphia. With relation to ourselves, we can't but know how we are to act, if we consider that God has endowed man with such a nature as makes him necessarily desire his own good; and, therefore, he may be sure that God, who has bestowed this nature on him, could not require any thing in prejudice of it; but on the contrary, the he should do every thing which tends to promote the good of it.

Origen, speaking of the faith of Christians, could not was there anything peculiar in their faith have said, "It is the conformity of our faith with the common innate notions of all mankind, that has given it entrance into the minds of candid and ingenuous hearers.

There are few so gross to imagine, we can direct infinite wisdom in the dispensation of providence, or persuade him to alter those laws he contrived before the foundation of the world for putting things in a regular course. Our Reason, which gives us a demonstration of the divine perfections, affords us the same concerning the nature of those duties God requires; not only in relation to himself, but to ourselves and to one another.

Evolutionary science is aimed at explaining how dumb, dead atoms transformed themselves into people in a few billion years. To press this matter further, let me ask you, whether there's not a clear and distinct light that enlightens all men; and which, the moment they attend to it, makes them perceive those eternal truths, which are the foundation of all our knowledge; and is it not God himself who immediately illuminates them?

And does not the wisest of men say that "God made all things for himself, and the wicked for the day of evil"; and consequently God's glory, rather than the good of man, occasioned the Almighty to create man, and to give him laws?

Justice and mercy among men relate to different subjects. Inthe college would receive the "Sister Bell" that had been given to Father Hurley in and damaged in the fire at St. Hugh Ross and Gleason L. Unafraid to take on the tough questions, Ham and the other authors he has assembled eviscerate notions of millions of years, gap theory, dinosaurs turning into birds, and a local flood.

But I almost despair of your doing it, since you seem to me to advance a new hypothesis. It is absurd to imagine that we are obliged to act thus in some cases, and not in others, when the reason for acting thus in all is the same.

Here is the practice of the Christian world on the side of faith, sacrificing charity, and all that's valuable to it; and on the other side, Christ and his Apostles preferring charity before it. Can you believe that Natural and Revealed religion differ in nothing, but the manner of their being conveyed to us?

To live under this sense and expectation, is to live a life of faith, and is co-incident with a life of virtue.
