On the Nt page of the Record of last
'Week, friend Editor you published .4 .
"Card" taken. from the Reformed Chuith
Messenger. It is .calculated' to produce
an etioneous impression, hence the lequest
to insert also for the benefit of Star read
•efs the following: The MoithlY did not,
make Dr. Gerhart say iti his Trdet No. 3
what the Card insinuates, as will appear
a, the article below: :Mat Dr. Gerhart
now says the Refer:Wed Church always
tenaciously held in opposition to the Mer
cersburg Theology. • The Pastor of Trin
ity Refornied Church of this place never
asserted anything else when preaching on
that vital question, "How_eloes the_ainne
receive an interest in the saving ben flits of
Christ Jesus," but that "All the benefits
of Christ are received, that is, appropria
ted by us and thus made our own; not by
baptism, not in the way of any sacrament;
al transaction, but by personal faith, and
by the exercise of personal faith exclusively."
But the article in reply to the Card from
the Christian World speaks for itself :
The Mercersburg writers; it is well
known; have put themselves forward as
great reformers; and as oracles in theolog
ical lore. They affect to teach by author
ity. They assume great learning. They
are thoroughly acquainted with the mod
ern theology of Germany, and in accord
with it. They understand the Heidelberg
CathechiSna far better than did Ursinus.
They are "the Church," and whoever
dares to call_ in question, their_ Oracular
deliverances; opposes "the Church," etc.;
etc. '
And yet the suspicion has been gradu
ally creeping through the Church that
their theological knowledge is not quite
so overwhelming as they seem to assume ;
that it is quite prudent to examine and
try their utterances by the Bible and the
Cathechism, and that at best they are ire:
ry unreliable guides ; nay, that in assunt
ing to teach all modern Christendom it
would be well if they Would become learn:
ers for some time yet,to as to know where:
of - they affirm.
This suspicion will be confirmed by a
recent exposure. On the iliabject of bap
tism which has been their bobby for years,
on Which"they have preached at times in
numerable, and written interminably, it
new appears that they' have no definite o
pinion at all, and that so far as the very
marrow of the matter is concerned; they
are on both sides of the question.
This will become plain to every Olio by
rearling two deliverances; both by Dr.
Gerhart, and which we give here, side by
side, so that everydne can compare them :
Dr: Gerhart in Tract I Dr. Gerhart in Messen-
No . 3. t ger:
"In holy baptism "All the benefits of
grace is this same Christ are received,
divine life bf Christ I that is, appropriated
given by the new f• by us and thus made
creating power of our own, not by bap
the Holy Spirit to tisni, not in the wuy
those NI , ho are by I
of any sacramental
nature dead in sin, transaction, but. by
in that by baptunt l personal faith, and by
they arc engrafted into the exercise of personal
Jesus Christ, and are faith exclusivity."
therefore made partak
ers of Christ and all
ht.§ benefits:"
"There is no exter- I

ter withouithe inter-
nal washing with the ,
1. Dr. Gerhart will not call into ques
tion the genuineness of these quotations.
The first is taken from his Tract No. 3,
published, we think, in 1870, the second
is taken from a card lately isublished by
him in the Messenger. Dr. Gerhart will
pass this contradiction by in dignified si
lence; which is at least convenient.
2. The twb at:lien:tenth' taithilt plaugibly
be reconciled. Because (to use his own
language) the one "asserts just the Con
tradictoky opposite" of the other: The one
asserts that all the benefits of Christ "are
received" or "appropriated," not by bap
tism, but "by personal faith exclusively."
The other affirms that "we become par
takers" of all the benefits`of Christ by
baptism, and the Tract urges that this is
done by baptism exclusively. But there
is no difference, as every one can see, be
tween "to receive" and "to become par
takers of." In the case of the benefits of
Christ,he who "becomes partaker of them"
must hate "reeeited" theta.
3. These are no accidental utterances
of Dr. Gerhart imperfectly expressed.—
That sentiment taken from Tract No. 3
is the burden bf the whole Tract. The
Tract is nothing else than a statement, it
eration and reiteittion of this one propo
sition, in various fottas, as e. q., that we
are saved by btiptisM, (ltat we become the
children Of God by baplizbn, that we are
creitted in the 'linage Of Gbd by baptism.
that we are cleansed from the pollution of
sin by baptism, that we become partakers (f
the merets Of Christ by baptism, 'etc.; all ex
pressed ih the most positive and bracular
tnauner. The other (contradietory) sen
timent, seems drawn up with the niost es
pecial care, so as to express his as
he wishes other denominations to under
stand them, and here it is that the bene
fits of Christ are received by personal faith
4. Both Oritilifints barthot be true.—
The latter is in steordanula 'With the Ilei•
delbergCathechism (question 20) the dee

former is a vagaty br the AlieteerShurg
5. lilercersburg pf‘ifees lotidly to idsch
positive theology. Which of these posi
tive propositions are we to take as er
pressing the real views of the Mercershurg
School ? Are such guides reliable ?
Would it not be well to become clear as
to their own views, before urging them
upon a long-patient Church.?
P. S.—Dr. Gerhart's proposition, given
in the right hand column above, is his
latest revi:sed statement on baptism, tak
en from his card in the last Messenger.
We should be very glad to learn that
Mercersburg will abide by that statement.
As regards the card; it is calculated to
make au erroneous impression, as though
Dr. Gerhart hr.d never tittered the send.
meet ascribed to him in Dr. Schne'ck's
'book. The extract given above (left hand
dolemn) 'shows that he has, ih tubstance,
given utterance to the sentiment he now
repudiates. We have examined into the
Yriattei 'and find that Dr. Schneck did
make an error in giving said sentence as
a quotation , from Dr. Gerhart. How he
came to Make this error- we .hnow not,
anil D. Gerhart •hair a perfect right there
fore to correct it. The sentence complain-.
ed of was not printed in the Monthly in
quotation marks (aii'd therefore the Month
ly is not to blame); but is contained in,an
article written: by the undersigned (in the
January 1.87.1.; number of the Monthly),
reviewing said Tract No. 3, and given as
a summinq up of what we understood Dr.
Gerhart to teach. That summing up was
correct. This we unhesitatingly affirm.—
Dr. Gerhart did teach that doctrine, if
the English language has any definite
meaning. The single extract given above
wilt prove it.. But the matter, is examin
ed more at length in an article sent on
for the June number of the Reformed
Church Monthly, to which-interested read
era are referred.
We regret that Dr. Sehneek made the
Mistake, BM the only Mistake wasin the
quotation marks. That sentiment (now
complaibed of and now repudiated) is the .
whole Widen of the Tract Po. 3, written
by Dr Gerhart. That Tract was publish
ed in.full iii the Monthly, ember'7o.

The Doctor's long and successful practice
at Hagerstown, Md., and the past five years
at Martinsburg, W. Va.,
_and nearly four
yOrs at the bedside in the different Ilospif
als of the large cities enables him to give
full satisfaction to the afflicted, without the
us of that deadly poison Mercury, and oth
er powerful Minerals that annually send
thousands to a premature grave.
All Nervous 1 iiseases speedily cured. Let
the weak and nervous bear in mind that
when they have symptoms indicating ma
ny other iliscases, it originates principally
from the nerves.
This dreadlul scourge of su &ring human
ity, brought on from unnatural habits of
youth, or learned froth etil companions at
school or while alone. Both sexes, old and
young, are guilty of it, and it is hastening
thousands to that bourne from whence no
trawler returns. For all such Dr. Jones
has discovered a never-failing treatment
that will soon bring about new life and ful
ly restore enfeebled manhood.
This disease strikes With terror to the
boldest heart, where it is soon discovered
in the roof bf the mouth and throat, with
discoloring blotches over the head and bo
dy, last betraying the unhappy victim,deai h
ending the suffering.
Make an early application, and be cured
witlmit any change of diet or hindrance
from btrsiness or detectibn of friends.
Without the dangerous medium of an oper
of every . form speedily cured.
Affection of the Kidneys and Bladder,
and all kinds of Chronic Diseases, ii;) mat
ter how long standing, speedily restored.
Dr.- Jones can be consulted by letter de
scribing symptoms, age,and how longstand
ing. All letters strictly confidential._
The completion of the Cumberland Val
