To introduce this booklet, Pastor C. R. Stam wrote these words:
"We hope the following message will prove a great blessing to you. In it we explain our objections to the Sacrifice of the Mass, and our belief in the once-for-all sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, by which alone we find 'peace with God.'
As we press our arguments home, please do not conclude that we hold any ill will toward any Roman Catholic. Rather it is our prayer that, after reading this article you will be rejoicing with us in an accomplished redemption."
