Description

Excerpt from Address on the Acts and Deliverances of the General Assembly of the Old School Presbyterian Church: During the Past Five Years, on the State of the Country In the long letter of the Bishops to the Churches we find the following: When St. Paul, in direct connection with the words just cited, exhorts us to 'render to all their dues, tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom, fear to Whom fear, honor to whom honor, ' and that 'not only for wrath, but for conscience sake, ' we have no hesitation in teach ing that the claim to all these duties and manifestations of allegiance and loyalty from us and from all those States so recently united in render ing them, is rightfully in that Government, which is now by force of arms maintaining such claim. The refusal of such allegiance we hold to be a sin, and when it stands forth in armed rebellion, it is a great crime before the laws of God, as well as man. This, Brethren, your Bishops teach as official expositors of the Word of God. Less they believe they could not teach without unfaithfulness to the Scriptures. Do. 483.
