Chapter 24.—46.  Rogatianus of Nova[1] said:  "Christ established the Church, the devil heresy:  how can the synagogue of Satan have the baptism of Christ?"[2]

47.  To him our answer is:  Is it true that because Christ established the well-affectioned, and the devil the envious, therefore the party of the devil, which is proved to be among the envious, cannot have the baptism of Christ?
