Yes I know but there is no formal translation yet. You pretty much get the message & his Excellency nails it pretty good. I will ask my Spanish-speaking friends to translate it but it will take time. Hopefully someone out there can do it a lot sooner!

A Spanish to English translation would further complicate it, since the original would not have been in Spanish, the Menzingen crowd don't speak Spanish.
Bowler is a man who believes John 3:5 as it is written.

Jesus answered: Amen, amen I say to thee, unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)

St. Augustine: “If you wish to be a Catholic, do not venture to believe, to say, or to teach that they whom the Lord has predestinated for baptism can be snatched away from his predestination, or die before that has been accomplished in them which the Almighty has predestined.’ There is in such a dogma more power than I can tell assigned to chances in opposition to the power of God, by the occurrence of which casualties that which He has predestinated is not permitted to come to pass. It is hardly necessary to spend time or earnest words in cautioning the man who takes up with this error against the absolute vortex of confusion into which it will absorb him, when I shall sufficiently meet the case if I briefly warn the prudent man who is ready to receive correction against the threatening mischief.” (On the Soul and Its Origin 3, 13)
