FOOLISH AND USELESS RITES

Light of truth

“It recommended to Christians various foolish and useless rites, suited only to nourish superstition, no small part of which we see religiously observed by many even to the present day. And finally it alienated the minds of many, in the following centuries, from Christianity itself, and produced a heterogeneous species of religion, consisting of Christian and Platonic principles combined.”

Mosheim,
Ecclesiastical History, Century II,
Part II, Chap. I, Par. 12
