74 THE GREAT APOSTASY.

quoted text from chapter 7:
"5. Judaistic converts to Christianity sought to modify and adapt the tenets of the new faith so as to harmonize them with their inherited love of Judaism, and the result was destructive to both. Our Lord had indicated the utility of any such attempts to combine new principle with old systems, or to patch up the prejudices of the past with
fragments of new doctrine. "No man," said He, "putteth a piece of
new cloth unto an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up
taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men
put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved (Matthew 9:16, 17) The gospel came as a new revelation, marking the fulfilment of the law, it was no mere addendum, nor was it a simple reenactment of past
requirements: it embodied a new and an everlasting covenant.
Attempts to patch the Judaistic robe with the new fabric of the
gospel could result in nothing more sights than a hideous rent. The new wine of the covenant could not be bottled in the time-eaten
leathern containers of Mosaic libations. Judaism was belittled and Christianity perverted by the incongruous association."
