-- 69. Eucratius of Theni [1725] said: "Our God and Lord Jesus Christ, teaching the apostles with His own mouth, fully laid down our faith, and the grace of baptism, and the rule of the law of the Church, saying, Go ye, and teach all nations, baptizing t70. Clearly, if the baptism is not consecrated in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, it should be considered to be of the heretics, and repudiated as unrighteous by us with all solemnity of witness; but if we discern this name in it, we do better to distinguish the words of the gospel from heretical error, and approve what is sound in them, correcting what is faulty.

[1725] Theni was in ecclesiastical province of Byzacene. A Eucratius occurs in Cypr. Ephesians 2.p>[1726] Matthew 28:19.

[1727] Conc. Carth. sec. 29.
