Reviews - What do customers think about The Westminster Confession into the 21st Century, Vol. 1?

Let Us Hold Fast To The Confession Of Our Faith  Jul 4, 2008
It occurred to me that the seminal thoughts of the Westminster Divines have a progeny of note. Dating from the 1600's, this is the basis of the Reformed Faith. That they are referred to as the Westminster divines, aptly describes their contribution to the church.

One contributor to this awe-inspiring first volume, Michael S Horton, embarks on an illuminating essay of warning dating from the 1800's. After this derisory study of history, one is able to see the dear cost Finney paid to his faith. The extraordinary lengths he went to, to uproot the Westminster Confession and its achievement in the new America, was met with devastating success at the poll - much to the glee of adulatory crowds and thrill-seeking fairgoers.

'In a recent interview, Jerry Falwell claimed Finney as 'one of my greatest heroes'. pg 411 And so he has become to many, including Graham. But when were their interests not defined by the following?

'Evangelistic practices, seeker-sensitive approaches, church growth strategies that emphasize technique (over biblical truth), political activism on the part of the church, nationalism, moralism, and a host of other interests are directly descended from the anthropocentric theology at the heart of Finney's rejection of the Westminster Standards.' pg 412

The 'anxious bench', alter calls, the on-stage public rebuke of those in opposition, the henchmen sent in advance as a circus entering towns, the repeated boast of 'No Creed, but Christ' - all were tactics spuriously employed to magnify the ministry of Finney. Today's revivals have fostered affinity to pragmatism, and are blinded by the historical facts on Finney's departure from the truth.

Of the divines John Murray truthfully extolled: 'Language fails to assess the blessing that God in His sovereign providence and grace bestowed upon His church through these...The influence exerted by them is beyond all human calculation. We should indeed be remiss if we did not make this commemoration the occasion for grateful remembrance of God's inestimable favor. Other men labored and we have entered into their labors. Truly the lines have fallen unto us in pleasant places and we have a goodly heritage.' pg 38
