And whereas these heretics boasted that they do not lie, we affirm that clearly they do lie. Por there is falsehood in being silent as well as in speaking. It was for this that Saint Paul boldly withstood Saint Peter" to the face, because he practised circumcision.

For baptism was generally given unto all, both old and young, as the Lord says to his disciples, ' Go ye, teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.'17 And ' Except a man be born again of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.'1 8 And again, the Lord says, ' Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not."9 This indeed he said for two reasons. For one, because those who wish to be saved must become as little 13 14 15 St. John xi. 26, 27. Romans x. 10. 1 Pet. iii. 15.
