Summary

" "The first Apostles-the chosen twelve-were succeeded in the Church by a distinct order in the ministry known as Bishops, upon whom special powers and privileges were conferred. These bishops ordained other bishops, who in turn laid hands upon their successors, and the bishops of the Protestant Episcopal Church are in that succession from the apostles. It follows that those alone are true ministers who have been ordained by those apostolical bishops. All others are "pretenders and usurpers. " This is the claim. It is as false as it is ridiculous, and should deceive no one." "
