For the sake of truth, for the sake of the church, and the many faithful witnesses which, in times past, have so earnestly contended "for the faith once delivered to the saints," the following work has been written.
The writer undertook this work with reluctance. He sincerely regrets that the necessity of this vindication ever existed; he would much rather have devoted his energies to a more pleasant task, but for the sake of the truth and the Church it would have been, in his estimation, a most serious neglect of duty, to allow such an unwarranted and untruthful misrepresentation of facts and doctrine to pass by unnoticed.
If our friends of the so called "Reformed Mennonite Church" did these things ignorantly, Christian charity demands that we should show them their errors. Should they have done them willfully and with design (which we hope is not the case), then again it would be in the highest degree, our duty to reprove and warn them of their uncharitable and unjust actions.
Though the writer in the following pages uses, oftentimes, what may be considered by some, as harsh and severe language, he was not actuated by any feelings of animosity or ill-will.
