Excerpt from Edgar, or From Atheism to the Full Truth
Has been a veritable light in darkness, and a guide to them who walked in the shadow of death. We have no patience with them who, in their ignorance, talk of the primitive simplicity of the Gospel in contrast with the great and complicated truths that are now part of the deposit of revealed truth. In one sense it is true that the principles laid down in the Gospel are few and apparently simple: as it is true, likewise, that the dogmatic utterances of the Church are few, much fewer than most people imagine but every great principle is necessarily complicated in its applications and consequences. Few, indeed, are the words, and simple, by which the Sacraments, - Baptism, Penance, the Eucharist, etc. Were instituted, but they open up questions and speculations and discussions which will occupy the thoughts of men throughout all time.
