Okay, okay, this is pretty much the laziest way I could think of to post something on the blog. But anybody who hasn’t seen it should check out Carl Trueman’s post here. The post, which is apparently the first in a series, delves into the question of what it means to be confessional. I think this is an urgent issue in our time. Having an actual confession of faith keeps us balanced, and keeps us honest. It keeps us from turning into a lone wolf, me and my bible with the Holy Spirit under a tree, type of Christian. That is important because the “me and my bible…” Christianity is particularly vulnerable to the arguments made from across the Tiber. But I digress…This article is worth reading, as is Trueman’s writing in general.
Thanks Andrew. As a guy in the pew, I don’t ordinarily think of confessionalism from the perspective of elders.
This is a great post. From my perspective in a PCUSA church, I can’t think of a more important topic. In fact, we have had some inroads by Arminians lately, and, thanks to our Confessions and confessionalism, they have had to rethink their efforts in our congregation. Thanks Andrew!
