426 ANNALS OF ΒΟβΕΒ DE HOVEDEN. A.D. 117(1. •written aforetime were written for our learning ;'2 and again, ' All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God ;'3 and ' I say none other things than those which the prophets have said should come.'3* And again, Saint Peter says ' We have a more sure word of prophecy.'4 And that the doctors are to be received, Saint Paul bears witness, ' God hath set some in the Church as teachers.'8 Saint Paul also quotes the example of the law, saying, ' Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do fhem.'6 And both he himself as well as the other Apostles give many testimonies in favour of the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms ; a thing which they would not have done if their words were not to be received. These heretics therefore are bound by their own admission to receive Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms, if only upon the testimonies which are borne by Jesus and the Apostles, and no others. Por do we not say that if an instrument or written testimonial is believed in any part thereof, it ought to be entirely believed, or else to be received in no part thereof?7 " On the second head we do convict and adjudge them to be heretics, upon the authority of the New Testament. Por we say that he holds not the Catholic faith, who does not confess it when he is asked thereon, or when his faith is made trial of. For this reason the Lord says, in the Acts of the Apostles, to Ananias, relative to Saint Paul, ' For he is a chosen vessel unto me to bear my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel.'8 Also, the Lord says of the centurion ; Ί have not found so great faith in Israel." When the Apostles were fordidden to speak in the name of Jesus Christ, Peter boldly said, ' We ought to obey God rather than men.'1 0 A person on being asked as to his faith in Jesus Christ, ought to answer as Peter answered; for on being asked by the Lord, whom do men say that the Son of Man is ? he made answer, ' Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God.'1 1 The blind man also, on being asked, after receiving his sight from the Lord, if he believed in the Son of God, answered, Ί believe, Lord.'1 8 So Martha, on being asked by the Lord, 'Believest thou this?' 1 3* Romans xv. 4. a 2 Tim. iii. 16.
