The Exercise of Faith Impossible Except in the Catholic Church (Classic Reprint)

W. G. Penny


Excerpt from The Exercise of Faith Impossible Except in the Catholic Church

So much has been said of late upon the subject of Church authority, while at the same time such a very great variety of view and so much uncertainty upon the subject altogether prevails at the present time in England, that it is hoped that any attempt which is made to throw light upon the question, (whether it be in any degree successful or not,) will meet with indulgence at the hands of those for whom it is written; for it is written in the hope that it may serve as a step towards meeting that which is felt to be one of the great needs of the day, in that until the great question of authority is settled, it seems almost hopeless to enter into discussions upon matters of doctrine or of detail, nor can controversies be brought to a successful and lasting termination until men are agreed as to whom they are to refer them to for decision; and not only this, but, what is principally here considered, there is felt to be so intimate, I may say inseparable, a connection between the having true faith and the going by the proper authority, that it deserves our most attentive consideration what guide we are to follow.
