1251. CHURCH, Law of.—

What is the
power of that church? As it is a society, it
must have some laws for its regulation. Time
and place of meeting; admitting and excluding
members, &c., must be regulated. But
as it was a spontaneous joining of members,
it follows that its laws extend to its own members
only, not to those of any other voluntary
society; for then, by the same rule, some
other voluntary society might usurp power
over them.—
