Order and Chaos : A Lecture, Delivered at Loyola College, Baltimore, in July 1869 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Order and Chaos: A Lecture, Delivered at Loyola College, Baltimore, in July 1869 If there be in this lower world any authority which represents God, and speaks in His name - as all Chris tian communities, though with hesitating and stammer ing lips, profess to do, in some sense or other - that authority or institution, whatever it be, must reﬂect, as far as the creature can, the mind and the attributes of God. Otherwise it is convicted of imposture. For whatever in our world does not reﬂect God, in its own measure and proportion, is either a delusion or an abomination. Generally it is both at once. The whole argument which I am going to submit to your patient attention is based on this simple proposition. And now, keeping carefully in mind that whatever professes to belong to God must faithfully reﬂect Him, we may ask, without further preface, the question which this lecture is designed to answer: Is it in Protestantism, or in the Catholic Church, that the Divine presence and attributes are reﬂected?
