Excerpt from A Discourse Delivered at Margaretville, to the Loyal Orangemen of Wilmot, on July 12, 1865: Being the One Hundred and Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of Britain's Deliverance From the Bondage and Superstition of Popery
My brethren, it is not at all surprising that the Pope and his followers should hate the Bible for there is not a single dogma in popery that it does not most positively contradict and condemn. Does the papist inform us that his religion was from the very beginning of christianity'i Jesus contra dicts the assertion, and in his holy gospel declares the whole establishment of Romanism to be Of the devil. DO they tell us in all gravity that our blessed Lord made St. Peter pope, and prince Of the apostles? Jesus declares the assertion a falsehood, and that he never contemplated papery in his church. Thus in the gospel Of St. Matthew our blessed Lord utters the following language: Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great, exercise authority upon them, but it shall not be so among you - Matt. Xx., 25 - 27. Do not these plain words of Christ, my brethren, give popery a ﬂat contradic tion; for in relation to the dominion that the Gentile princes exercised over them, he says, it shall not be so among you, that is, there shall he no pope, or supreme ruler among you. Nor is this merely my own explanation of the passage, for in the 23rd chapter Of the same gospel he mentions the 'very name of popc, and says, Call no man your Father upon earth, for one is your Father which is in heaven. It is per haps unnecessary to tell you, brethren, that the word pope, or papa, is a Latin word, and signifies father, which word is found in our English translation.
