JULY, 1950 Tract Assailing Faith Left In Pews Of Church Marshall — Copies of a leaflet entitled, "Personal Testimony of an Ex-Catholic," a tract assailing the Catholic Church, were found here recently in the pews of St. Joseph's Church. Reportedly the story of a "Mrs. Btetty Leonard," the leaflet is printed and circulated by a gen- tleman by the name of "Elder B. E. Echols" of Marshall. In the pamphlet a story of con- version from the Catholic religion to a "Hallelujah shouting" Protes- tant type is recorded by Mrs. Leonard, a lady whose name has never been heard of by the Cath- olic pastor who has governed the Church In these 5 counties these past 20 years. The booklet reports Mrs. Leon-1 aid's entrance into a Profestant faith in terms of strong assualts' on the Church she says she left. J Catholicism is attacked as a "re- ligion without a heart." The statues of the saintly heroes of God are seen as "cold, (lifeless faces." Catholics don't "esteem" the Bible, etc. Mrs. Leonard sums...

Page 6 THE JEFFERSONIAN JULY, 1950 uestion Box F. if iJ 1 :r ' THK QUESTION Q. Since the Bible is sufficient, "why do Catholics follow "tradi- tion?" A. In answer, we should like to point out respectfully that the idea of the Bible being all sufficient is itself based on a tradition. It does not come from the Bible. Martin Luther started the tradi- tion of "the Bible only." In prac- ice, Protestants follow the pattern lie set. Protestants appeal to the authority of their churchmen who have studied the word of God, or else they set themselves up as the criterion of belief. "The Bible only" is a Protestant tradition, begun 1600 years after Christ. Tradition — the sum of reveal- ed doctrine not committed to Sacred Scripture, 'but spoken by Christ to the Apostles, or spoken by the Apostles at the prompting of the Holy Spirit — is a valid * guide to faith and moralB. We have signs of tradition In the Bible itself. Let us examine a few evidences In the Old Testa- ment. In the book of Deut...

JULY, 1950 THE JEFFERSON IAjN Pag* 7 Taught To Pray (Continued from page 6) Church, I found out, believed (Baptism was necessary for Heav- en because the Divine Redeemer (Who sets the conditions had said so. Catholics, I learned, actually (believe Baptism meant some- thing. It wipes away original sin, Imakes the child an heir of heav- en, etc, Such is their teaching. For them then to regard Baptism for their children as just as necess- ary for the soul as bread for the •baby's body it seemed to me was very consistent. So they baptize their (kids and indoctrinate them £n teachings which they feel their Church can't go wrong on, the teachings of Christ which they feel it's a privilege for eveiy- o n e to know. These teachings they regard as truths in the field of religion comparable to truths In the field of mathematics. Con- sequently in teaching their child- ren such they don't feel that they are depriving the child of a bit of freedom. On the other hand "choose your own religion" P...

The trouble with a lot of folks is that they exalt themselves and consequent- ly. will be, as Our Lord said, humbled. Having eyes to see, they see not, and having ears to hear, they hear not. "There is no speculation about matters involving our salvation. For example, we know about God in two ways, seeing His handi- work in nature and by the revela- tion He has made in the Bible. "Examine the record of the Bible and you will see that Cod didn't leave us to speculate about such an important thing as the existence of Hell. God taught that it exists .and He didn't put any time limit to it, either. "The Bible also shows that God 'believed that man had free will. Why?

If both for reasons not known to us could not be done, we then urged the colum- nist himself to quote the state- ments of the Catholic Bishops we sent him and "to promote good will among religious groups by advising his hearers that the word of their fellow America^ citizens who grew up to be Bis- hops of the great Catholic Church ought to be respected."
