Excerpt from The Scroll: Vols. XL-XLII; January, 1943-December, 1944
I have in hand a treasured sermon of Dr. Peter Ainslie. It is dated, Temple, Baltimore; Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 1924. Its caption is, A Highway Through Protestant Christendom. The text sug gests the theme. It is this: And a highway shall there be, and a way; and it shall be called The Way of Holiness. Isa.
In this treasured sermon Dr. Ainslie gives ex pression positively and without reserve to his own spirit of catholicity, and with it to the cardinal fea tures of our Disciple position. As to the latter he says: The Disciples are committed to the apostolic practice relative to the weekly observance of the Lord's Supper and baptism by immersion; and I see no reason why we should not stand everlastingly loyal to these. Open membership has nothing what ever to do with these practices. Open membership need not be any more of a compromise with regard to the scriptural form of baptism than open com munion is with regard to the scriptural observance of the Lord's Supper.
