Chapter 31.—60.  Tenax of Horrea Celiæ 1842 said:  "There is one baptism, but of the Church; and where the Church is not, there baptism also cannot be." 1843

61.  To him we answer:  How then comes it that it may be where the rock is not, but only sand; seeing that the Church is on the rock, and not on sand?
