" CATHOLICS FEAR THE BIBLE" Dr. Orchard Lectures in London

Dr. W. E. Orchard, speaking at a lecture of the Messengers of the Faith, forecast celebrations in honour of the placing of the Bible in every church in the country in the 16th century are to take place.

From that time onwards it has always been a theory among Protestants in England that the Catholic church is the enemy to the open Bible, that she is afraid of vernacular translations, and that she fears the Bible; and on the other hand that she is opposed to the Higher Criticism.

The Forty Strokes Save One Article Six of the Thirty-nine Articles states that "Holy Scripture containcth all things necessary to salvation." But whence comes the authority for that statement? Not in the Bible itself, for the only authority we have for the Canon and inspiration of Scripture is the Tradition of the Church. Dr. Orchard then said a few words on the Palestinian (the shorter Canon of the Jews) and the Alexandrine (Septuagint) which is the complete Canon which the Church has accepuxi.
