ANDERSON, JOHN

Alexander and Rufus; or a Series of Dialogues on Church Communion, in Two Parts. Part 1: Vindication of Scriptural Church Communion in Opposition to Latitudinarian Schemes. Part 2: Defence of the Communion Maintained in the Secession Church. (1862)

"Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them" (Rom. 16:17). "

John Calvin listed the doctrine of the sacraments as the third most important element, in cataloguing his four major areas of concern, regarding Christianity and the ecclesiastical Reformation of his day, writing,

If it be inquired, then, by what things chiefly the Christian religion has a standing existence amongst us, and maintains its truth, it will be found that the following two not only occupy the principal place, but comprehend under them all the other parts, and consequently the whole substance of Christianity: this is, a knowledge, first, of the mode in which God is duly worshipped; and, secondly, of the source from which salvation is to be obtained. When these are kept out of view, though we may glory in the name Christians, our profession is empty and vain. After these come the sacraments and the government of the church... (The Necessity of Reforming the Church [Presbyterian Heritage Publications, 1544, reprinted 1995], p. 15).

Second Reformation thought on church communion is clearly echoed in the words of the Reformed Presbytery, in 1876, when they declared,

In this age of boasted charity, but really 'detestable neutrality and indifferency,' it is an irksome and painful task, but a duty, thus to bear testimony against churches, in which are to be found, no doubt, many precious sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty. But personal piety never was, nor possibly can be, the condition of fellowship in the visible church. To think so, and say so, is one of the most popular delusions of the present day. It puts the supposed pious man, speaking his experience, in the place of God, speaking his sovereign will in the Bible. This is the height of impiety. (Act, Declaration, and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation, p. 175).

These testimonies remain true today (and maybe even more so), as the close communion doctrine of the Reformation continues to be much misunderstood and even more maligned. The false ecumenists (and theological egalitarians and pluralists) of our day continue to batter away at this foundation of the Reformation doctrine of the church -- while even many of those that profess to be the heirs of the Reformation are found to be ignorant regarding this point. Any doctrine of communion which does not take into account the biblical command to "be of one mind" (cf. Rom. 15:6, 2 Cor. 13:11, Phil. 1:27, Phil. 2:2, 1 Pet. 3:8) at a corporate, visible level is skewed from the beginning. In short, latitudinarian schemes of open communion (which only include the so-called "essentials" of the faith) are schismatic (i.e. if we do not confuse "schism" with "separation").

As Dodson notes, in his Open Letter to an RPCNA Elder, one should not

confuse 'schism' with 'separation.' They are not the same thing. John Brown, of Haddington, states, 'that schism in scripture, chiefly, if not solely, represents alienation of affection, and disagreement among those who continue the same joint attendance on the ordinances of the gospel,' 1 Cor. 12:25; 1:10. Augustine said, 'It is not a different faith makes schismatics, but a broken society of communion.' In no place, in the Bible, does the word 'schism' appear to signify 'visible separation.' Error in doctrine, corruption in worship and tyranny in discipline, render separation unavoidable, to escape the sin of schism. Your conception of what constitutes 'schism' is that of Rome. If 'schism' is 'separation;' and 'There is no precedent for schism [re: separation] in the Bible;' then, on what basis did Protestants leave Rome? Every Reformer owned that Rome is, in some sense, a Church of Christ. After all, that man of sin is seated in the 'temple of God,' as they taught (emphases added).

Schismatic schemes promoting open communion (of which paedocommunion is presently at the head), attempt to "dumb down" (to a greater or lesser degree) the requirements for partaking at the Lord's table. Loose and latitudinarian schemes of communion lead to churches that stand for little -- or nothing -- over time; while a Scripturally regulated close communion tends to the exact opposite end. Anderson makes this very point in his preface to this book, "corruption is the native consequence of latitudinarian schemes, (while) scriptural order in sacramental communion tends to make the visible church a heaven on earth to the faithful, terrible as an army with banners to her enemies, and to her King and Head for a name, for a praise and for glory."

If you love the purity and peace of Christ's church and agree with the words of John Calvin, when he wrote, "We are only contending about the true and lawful constitution of the church, required in the communion not only of the sacraments (which are the signs of profession) but also especially of doctrine" (Institutes, 4.2.12), then you will find a meaty meal in Alexander and Rufus -- for the author not only deals with the larger questions related to church communion, but also weaves into the fabric of this book many specific threads relating to practical applications and doctrinal controversies. Moreover, notwithstanding a couple of peculiar doctrinal foibles originating from the Seceder camp, in opposition to the Covenanters (especially regarding civil government and some points of the law), a plethora of subjects relative to the Reformed view of communion, church union, testimony-bearing, etc., are all dealt with here -- and these points are given the kind of attention (along with Scriptural and historical accuracy) that will be greatly appreciated among those familiar with the precise views of the "old dissenters" of Scottish origin.

Additionally, Anderson is not shy about proclaiming the fact that Scripture teaches that anti-Calvinists (i.e. Romanists, Pelagians, Arminians, Amyraldians, etc.), anti-paedobaptists, anti-regulativists, and a host of others that deny the apostolic faith (at points related to the doctrine, worship, government and discipline of the church), should be barred from the table of the Lord (arguing a fortiori from Math. 5:23-24); but, he is also careful to distinguish between the Popish and Prelatical views of excommunication (which equate excommunication with a sentence to hell) and the Calvinistic view which recognizes that those who are among the elect can at times come under the sentence of excommunication. For example, Greg Price has noted (in a forthcoming book on the visible church and separation) that "Calvin distinguishes between anathema and excommunication. The former sentences one to hell, the latter puts one outside the fellowship of the church" (cf. Calvin's Institutes 4.12.10). Samuel Rutherford makes the same distinction in his Survey of the Survey of that Summe of Church Discipline (1658) commenting on 1 Cor. 16:22 and 1 Cor. 5, as does James Fraser of Brae, on page 210, in The Lawfulness and Duty or Separation from Corrupt Ministers and Churches (1744).

It is also not without significance that Anderson's contendings can be seen to be nothing more than classic second Reformation teaching regarding fencing the Lord's table. Samuel Rutherford comments,

Because the Churches take not care, that Ministers be savoury and gracious; from Steermen all Apostasie and rottenness begin. O if the Lord would arise and purge his House in Scotland! As for Church-members, they ought to be holy; and though all baptized be actu primo members, yet such as remain habitually ignorant after admonition, are to be cast out, and though they be not cast out certainly, as paralytick or rottened members cannot discharge the functions of life: So those that are scandalous, ignorant, malignant, unsound in faith, lose their rights of Suffrages in election of Officers, and are to be debarred from the Seals. Nor can we defend our sinful practise in this: it were our wisdom to repent of our taking in the Malignant party, who shed the blood of the people of God, and obstructed the work of God, into places of Trust in the Church State, and the Army, contrary to our Covenants, they continuing still Enemies (Survey of the Survey, p. 373).

This is confirmed throughout The Acts of the General Assemblies of the Church of Scotland, From the Year 1638 to the Year 1649 Inclusive. Here is a partial list of offences recorded in The Acts for which people were disciplined: innovations in worship; neglecting daily family worship; Sabbath breaking; covenant refusing, covenant breaking and speaking against the national covenants; Arminianism; celebrating man-ordained holydays (e.g. Christmass); familiar fellowship with those excommunicated; promoting, countenancing, hearing or accepting false church government and unlawful ministers (whether Popish, Episcopal or sectarian [Independent]); slander; contumacy, etc.

Furthermore, recognizing Calvin's (biblical) distinctions concerning the visible church (distinguishing be­tween the visible church as to essence and the visible church as to constitution, cf. Calvin's Institutes 4.2.12), Anderson writes:

The catholic church comprehends all that profess the true religion. There is a lawful and necessary division of it into sections in respect of local situation. But when a number of people, bearing the Christian name, combine together as a distinct society, for the purpose of maintaining and propagating doctrines and practices, which, instead of belonging to the true religion, are contrary to it; they ought not, considered as such a combination, to be called a lawful section of the catholic church (i.e. constitutionally, according to their public character and profession--RB). It is not denied, that they belong to the catholic church (in as far as they, as individuals, profess the truth--RB); but it is denied, that there ought to be any such section or division in it. Thus, there ought to be no section of the catholic church, having for the peculiar end of its distinct subsistence, the support of episcopal hierarchy, unknown in the Scripture, of the propagation of antipaedobaptism, or of anti-scriptural doctrine, in opposition to that of God's election, redemption, effectual calling and the conservation of his people, as delivered in the scripture; or for the support of ways and means of divine worship not found in Scripture. If the catholic visible church were brought to a suitable discharge of her duty, she would abolish all such sections. But no society ought to be called such an unlawful section, while it can be shown that it subsists as a separate society for no other end, than for the maintaining of something in the doctrine, worship or government of the church which belongs to the Christian religion as delivered in the word of God, or for exhibiting a testimony against prevailing errors and corruptions which the scripture requires the catholic church to condemn. Such a profession of any party of Christians is no sectarian profession; and a union with them is not a sectarian, but properly a Christian union; and, being cordial and sincere, is a union in Christ; and communion upon the ground of this union is truly Christian communion. On the other hand, however much of our holy religion any body of Christians hold in common with others, and however many of them we may charitably judge to be saints, yet while their distinguishing profession is contrary to the word of God, communion with them, as a body so distinguished, is sectarian communion; as it implies a union with them in that which ought to be rejected by the whole catholic church (pp. 10-11, emphases added).

Commenting on "Alexander's" latitudinarian contention that Calvin would have tolerated Arminians and idolaters at the Lord's table (which together comprise the two main areas of Calvin's concern for ecclesiastical Reformation, as cited at the head of this review), "Rufus" replies,

Considering that the Arminian scheme includes some of the most pernicious errors of Popery, how reproachful it is to the memory of Calvin, to call such a base proposal, his plan revived and prosecuted? Did Mr. Calvin ever speak of independent churches in the one church of Christ? Or of promoting union, by holding sacramental communion with the professed teachers of false doctrine, as every Arminian teacher is, or with the professed defenders of superstition in the worship of God? By no means (Alexander and Rufus, p. 159).

Furthermore, it is a well documented fact that the Genevan Presbytery of Calvin's day, in 1536, sought to excommunicate anyone who would not swear an oath to uphold the Reformed doctrine as it was set forth in their Confession of Faith. T.H.L. Parker writes,

Since the evangelical faith had only recently been preached in the city, and there were still many Romanists, the ministers also urged excommunication on the grounds of failure to confess the faith. The Confession of faith, which all the citizens and inhabitants of Geneva... must promise to keep and to hold had been presented to the Council on 10 November 1536. Let the members of the Council be the first to subscribe and then the citizens, 'in order to recognize those in harmony with the Gospel and those loving rather to be of the kingdom of the pope than of the kingdom of Jesus Christ.' Those who would not subscribe were to be excommunicated (John Calvin: A Biography, p. 63, emphases added).

Moreover, those who would not submit to "Calvin's" close communion were not only proceeded against with negative ecclesiastical sanctions, but they came under negative civil sanctions also.

Mike Wagner, in Up From Reconstructionism, states,

John Calvin, during the First Reformation, showed that he supported the concept of Covenanted Reformation by requiring all the residents of Geneva to take an oath in support of the Reformation. The 'Register of the Council of 24' of Geneva notes as follows: 12 November 1537. It was reported that yesterday the people who had not yet made their oath to the reformation were asked to do so, street by street; whilst many came, many others did not do so. No one came from the German quarter. It was decided that they should be commanded to leave the city if they did not wish to swear to the reformation (Scribner, Bob and Pamela Johnston. 1993. The Reformation in Germany and Switzerland, Cambridge University Press, p. 138, emphases added).

Now, it should be obvious to those who know the commandments of God that an honest man cannot swear an oath to uphold a confession that he does not believe. To do so, even if the man disagrees with only one point of the confession, is to violate both the third and ninth commandments -- and to play the Jesuit (see the Westminster Larger Catechism on the duties required and the sins forbidden concerning the third and ninth commandments; these can be found as questions and answers 112, 113, 144, and 145). Such false swearing is also, by definition, perjury (I wonder how many perjured officers reside in Presbyterian and Reformed churches today?). To encourage others to so swear is subornation to perjury. These are all serious sins in themselves and all worthy of excommunication and civil penalties -- as the Genevan Reformers rightly taught and practiced.

In Alexander and Rufus close communion is also shown (as above) to be God's ordained method of promoting truth, unity and Reformation; not destroying it, as the ignorant and scandalous claim,

The term sectarian, the favorite watch-word of this author, tends to divert the attention from the matter in dispute. The question is, whether a church's refusing to have sacramental communion with such as openly avow their opposition to one or more articles of her scriptural profession has such effects as are now mentioned? Does this refusal break up the unity of the church at large? By no means. The truths of God's word constitute the bond of unity in the catholic church; so far as they are publicly professed and preserved in the doctrine, worship, and government of the several particular churches. Hence it is evident, that what breaks up the peace of the catholic church, is not the faithfulness of particular churches in refusing, but their laxness in granting sacramental communion to the avowed opposers of undoubted truths of God's word, as exhibited in the public profession of any of the churches, every instance of this laxness tending to weaken the bond of their union. Does refusing sacramental communion with the avowed opposers of the truths of God, publicly professed by a particular church, chill the warmth of love to the catholic church? surely no: for it is manifestly the interest of the catholic church that every particular church should hold these truths in her public profession, and not tolerate opposition to them in her communion. Hence it must give sincere pleasure to a lover of the catholic church to see a particular church uniformly faithful in refusing church communion to open opposers of any one of the truths of God contained in her public profession... Does the faithfulness of a particular church, in refusing to have sacramental communion with the open opposers of any article of her scriptural profession, hinder her from using any means appointed in the word of God for promoting his spiritual kingdom? This is so far from being the case, that this refusal is supposed and implied in the use of several proper means for that end; such as, a church's contending for the whole truth exhibited in her public profession; the judicial assertion of the truths of God's word, and the judicial condemnation of the contrary errors; committing the word to faithful men, who will teach others the whole truth and nothing but the truth, according to the public profession or testimony of the church, in due subordination to the holy scriptures; recognising the solemn engagements, which the church has come under to preserve whatever measure of reformation has been attained. These means, which are certainly appointed in the word of God, cannot be sincerely used by any particular church, unless she be careful, that such as are avowed and obstinate opposers of any article of her scriptural profession, may not be received into, or continued in her communion. Whilst these means, of our Lord's appointment, are willfully neglected, we have little ground to expect the Divine blessing on such other means as men may pretend, to use for the advancement of his spiritual kingdom (pp. 92-93, emphases added).

To see how closely this mirrors Calvin's teaching, see pages 126 to 135 in The Necessity of Reforming the Church (Presbyterian Heritage Publications' edition).

Anderson also does an excellent job concerning: Calvin's plan for promoting a union among the churches (p. 151ff.); the place of confessions and confessional subscription (pp. 85, 179); covenanting (pp. 358-384); separation (pp. 92, 132); worship (pp. 10-13, 87, 107, 142, 155, 161-164, 456ff., etc.); the marks of the church (p. 132ff.); uniformity (pp. 7, 103, 168, 205); the Westminster Assembly (p. 169ff); the Dutch views (p. 158f.); distinctions between essentials and non-essentials (p. 168); the so-called "glorious revolution" of 1688 (p. 263); the French Reformed churches (p. 156); the covenanted Reformation (p. 253); discipline (p. 103); attainments (pp. 11, 93, 137, 162ff., 206, etc.); the government of the church (p. 123); the so-called "Apostle's creed" (pp. 100-104); the Belgic Confession (pp. 135-138); councils in the ancient church (p. 104); the Donatists (p. 112); the forsaking of sin, false doctrine, and false teachers (pp. 92, 132); occasional hearing (p. 83); Owen against open communion (p. 207); sectarianism (p. 92); and much, much more.

AUGUSTINE

On the Creed: A Sermon to the Catechumens
Augustine on the so-called "Apostle's Creed." Large print edition.
(Rare bound photocopy) $9.95-70%=2.98

AUGUSTINE

On the Profit of Believing (c. 391)
This is one of the first books Augustine wrote as a Presbyter. Augustine wrote it to one of his friends who had been deceived by the Manichees. It is believed that his friend was granted repentance from this error; partially due, no doubt (from the perspective of human means), to this work.

AUGUSTINE

On the Trinity (c. 391)
Revised and annotated, with an introductory essay by W.G.T. Shedd. Shedd states that "this particular treatise is perhaps as pregnant and suggestive as any that Augustine, or any other theologian, ever composed. The doctrine of the Trinity is the most immense of all the doctrines of religion. It is foundational theology. Christianity, in the last analysis, is Trinitarian... The Trinity is the constitutive idea of the evangelical theology, and the formative idea of the evangelical experience... Mysterious as it is, the Trinity of Divine Revelation is the doctrine that holds in it all the hope of man; for it holds within it the infinite pity of the Incarnation and the infinite mercy of the Redemption." 228 pages.

AUGUSTINE

A Treatise on Faith and the Creed (c. 393)
This "work constitutes an exposition of the several clauses of the so-called Apostles' Creed. The questions concerning the mutual relations of the three Persons in the Godhead are handled with greatest fullness; in connection with which, especially in the use made of the analogies of Being, Knowledge, and Love, and in the cautions thrown in against certain applications of these and other illustrations taken from things of human experience, we come across sentiments which are also repeated in the City of God, the books on the Trinity, and others of his doctrinal writings" (Introductory Note).

AUGUSTINE

A Treatise on the Gift of Perseverance (c. 428)
One of Augustine's anti-Pelagian works, this is the second book of his treatise, "On the Predestination of the Saints." Perseverance, as a gift of God, is an integral part of the doctrine and practice of the Augustinian system of soteriology; it also underlies a proper understanding of assurance and leads to a powerful Christian testimony.
(Rare bound photocopy) $9.95-70%=2.98

AUGUSTINE

A Treatise on Grace and Free Will (c. 426)
In this work we see laid some of the major foundations of the Reformation of the sixteenth century. Comments from this and similar productions of Augustine's pen appear often in the writings of John Calvin; and many other Reformers are known to have tasted of the teaching of God's sovereign grace in the works of Augustine (as can be seen in their numerous quotations from his writings in their books, letters and tracts). This is one of Augustine's anti-Pelagian works and includes an extract from Augustine's "Retractions" regarding "De Gratia et Libero Arbitrio."

AUGUSTINE

A Treatise on the Predestination of the Saints (c. 428)
Augustine was the great forerunner to the Reformation and it was on books like this that Luther, Calvin, and the other magisterial Reformers cut their teeth. "This treatise is the first portion of a work, of which the following, On the Gift of Perseverance
, is the second... (these titles) were called out by two long letters, one from Prosper and the other from Hilary, acquainting Augustine with the Semi-Pelagian outbreak in Southern Gaul, and earnestly beseeching his aid in meeting it" (Editor's note). The corrupted demon seed of Pelagianism and Semi-Pelagianism (later being refined into Arminianism), being just newly planted by the wicked one in Augustine's day, has grown into a massive tree in our day. Its poison fruit now feeds most of the limbs of ecclesiastical antichrist -- from Rome, to the liberal Protestant churches, and on to the so-called "evangelicals:" this soul destroying heresy has reached pandemic proportions among professing Christians. Ironically, this work of Augustine is probably more needed in our day than it was in his -- over a millennium and a half later. A section of the subtitle provides an interesting overview of this treatise: "Wherein the truth of predestination and grace is defended against the Semi-Pelagians, -- those people, to wit, who by no means withdraw altogether from the Pelagian heresy, in that they contend that the beginning of salvation and of faith is of ourselves; so that in virtue, as it were, of this precedent merit (in man--RB), the other good gifts of God are attained." The editor notes, "Augustine shows that not only the increase, but the very beginning also of faith, is God's gift. On this matter he does not disavow that he once thought differently, and that in some small works, written before his Episcopate, he was in error, as in that exposition, which they object to him, of propositions from the epistle to the Romans. But he points out that he was subsequently convinced chiefly by this testimony, 'But what hast thou that thou hast not received?' Which he proves is to be taken as a testimony concerning faith itself..."

AUGUSTINE

A Treatise on Rebuke and Grace (c. 426)
Another of Augustine's anti-Pelagian works. Includes an extract from his "Retractions" on "De Correptione et Gratia." Here Augustine sets forth "what is the Catholic faith concerning law, concerning free will, and concerning grace." He also shows the necessity of "medicinal rebuke" in the Scriptural order of a universe in which God has foreordained whatsoever comes to pass.

BALFOUR, WILLIAM

The Establishment Principle Defended (1873)
"The principle of Church Establishments, properly understood... is just the principle of national religion. It has many ramifications all springing from an acknowledgement of the universal supremacy of Christ, and bearing upon the duty of nations and their rulers to promote the advancement of true religion, and the prosperity of Christ's cause and kingdom. It is connected with the protection of the Sabbath... (it) assumes that nations are moral and responsible creatures, accountable to God in their corporate capacity, and the proper subjects of rewards and punishments. It implies that wherever God's Word exists, its existence and influence ought to be nationally acknowledged as the only supreme authority and the fountain of law... All this is very powerfully expounded and enforced in this volume" (James Begg from the Preface). In short, this book shows how civil powers are to acknowledge Christ as King, and to civilly sanction all those who publicly promote Satan's kingdom (whether by cries of equality, neutrality, or toleration of lies, deception, heresy or idolatry).

BARROW, REG

Calvin, Covenanting and Close Communion (1996)
Barrow demonstrates how social covenanting and close communion were practiced by Calvin in Geneva. He shows that Calvin, in his desire to uphold sola Scriptura
and promote further Reformation, saw the faithful implementation of these two ordinances as the means ordained of God to extend, protect and consolidate the work of the Holy Spirit -- in the individual, civil, and (especially) the ecclesiastical battle against the man of sin in his day. Modern Calvinists have been told little about what Calvin really stood for -- concerning many important areas of thought. The specific information included in this title, regarding God's work through Calvin, is once again being made available (for those with eyes to see) through the research, publications and web site of Still Waters Revival Books. If you are interested in real Reformation and you don't mind owing up to the hard truths of Scripture promoted by our Reformed forefathers, then you will find this item a meaty little snack pointing you toward the main course found in Anderson's Alexander and Rufus, which Barrow here reviews.

BARROW, REG

A Contemporary Covenanting Debate; Or, Covenanting Redivivus
Joe Bell (an Independent, Baptist, and professing Reconstructionist) kicked Reg Barrow off his email discussion group because the subjects of Divine Right Presbyterianism and the Covenanted Reformation were too hot for him to handle. This is Barrow's final answer to Bell (which Bell censored from his list). No one, including Bell, has yet to attempt an answer. Barrow answers many specific questions regarding the permanence of covenant obligation, national Reformation, historical testimony, and many other doctrines which were prevalent during the period of the second Reformation. A wealth of original (Reformation) texts are cited throughout and this spirited debate should help to generate interest in many of those biblical attainments which were won during those glorious days in which major nations openly covenanted themselves (as moral persons) to Christ.

BARROW, REG

Saul in the Cave of Adullam: A Testimony Against the Fashionable Sub-Calvinism of Doug Wilson (Editor of Credenda/Agenda Magazine); and, for Classical Protestantism and the Attainments of the Second Reformation
Doug Wilson and others at Credenda/Agenda used their magazine to publicly attack and slander Reg Barrow (President of Still Waters Revival Books) in a column that they call the "Cave of Adullam." This invective was Credenda's response to Barrow's comments on Knox Ring (where Barrow noted that John Calvin would have excommunicated John Frame for the apostasy that he manifests in his new book on worship). Numerous private attempts were unsuccessfully made (by Barrow and others) to call Wilson to repentance for this slander. Ultimately, charges for violation of the ninth commandment were brought (in accord with Matt. 18:15-17) against Wilson by Barrow. This book recounts the salient points of the controversy (and disciplinary actions) between Wilson and Barrow in their actual email debates!. These debates are also a classic example of the differences that exist today between paleopresbyterians (Barrow) and neopresbyterians (Wilson). Wilson's charges against Barrow, of Anabaptism, separatism, etc. are all refuted under a mountain of quotations from Reformation source documents. Barrow's refutations of Wilson's spurious charges bring to light many aspects of Reformation thought that have been lost or forgotten in our day. Besides the initial controversy (over Frame and worship) and the restoration process (set forth in Matthew 18:15-17), this book should be of special interest to all of those who love the "old paths" of truth -- trod by our forefathers in the Reformed faith -- for some of the most pressing issues of our day (regarding the individual, church and state) are addressed herein. Classic statements, cited by Barrow, not only exhibit the wisdom which God granted the best Reformers of both the first and second Reformations, but also specifically demonstrate how Wilson and many other modern Protestants actually reject the Reformation at many points (all their protests not withstanding). "And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in" (Isa. 58:12).

BIRGER, LARRY

A Brotherly Testimony Against the Use of Instrumental Accompaniment In Public Worship
Birger notes, "This letter was written to my friend's former pastor. It was subsequently forwarded to the elders of his former church, a small congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. This friend had initially absented himself from corporate worship due to their use of instrumental accompaniment, and (like me: see Why the PCA is Not a Duly Constituted Church and Why Faithful Christians Should Separate From This Corrupt "Communion"
) upon further study of the matter of the lawful constitution requisite for a church to claim lawful authority from Christ (see Calvin's Institutes, Book IV, Chapter 2, Section 12, and my piece against the PCA), determined that no such lawful authority exists in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. The use of instrumental accompaniment in the corporate worship of God's people was recognized unanimously by historic reformed writers as a return to the Judaizing ceremonies of the Roman Catholic and Episcopal (i.e. Prelatic) Churches. This was also the opinion of the ancient church, and even Aquinas is cited as excluding their use for this reason. Thus, Dabney comments [in his review of John Girardeau's book on the subject], 'Christ and His apostles ordained the musical worship of the New Dispensation without any sort of musical instrument, enjoining only the singing with the voice of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Hence such instruments are excluded from Christian worship. *Such has been the creed of all churches, and in all ages*, except for the Popish communion after it had reached the nadir of its corruption at the end of the thirteenth century, and of its prelatic imitators (my emphases).' It is a sad commentary on the disposition of the church and its leaders when those who glory in the name, 'reformed', wish to argue us back into the principles and practices of the Romish whore, and of her illegitimate offspring (Rev. 17 & 18). May God bless this little work to encourage the faithful to the recovering of our ecclesiastical heritage, to a return to the old paths wherein is rest for our souls (Jer. 6:16)."

BIRGER, LARRY

Why the PCA is Not a Duly Consti­tuted Church and Why Faithful Christians Should Separate from this Corrupted "Communion"
Two letters from Larry Birger, Jr. to the session of his former congregation in the PCA, with an historical introduction. Birger states, "This work is emitted by way of testimony against the defections from the reformation of the true religion granted by God in ages past, in hopes of playing some small part in the edification of God's people currently languishing under such defected and defecting denominations." It spotlights the differences between classic Presbyterian thought (paleopresbyterianism) and what today is but a pale imitation (neopresbyterianism) of the Reformation attainments that have been won (at the cost of much suffering and many lives) in the past. This is a good practical introduction to ecclesiology, testimony-bearing, and second Reformation thought.

BRUCE, MICHAEL

God's Mysterious Love and Providence
This sermon is read from the book Sermons in Times of Persecution
($19.99). It is an astounding sermon which gives one the feel of what it would be like to listen to a faithful covenanted preacher who was risking his life for the sake of the Gospel. Here the sweetness of Christ's love is contrasted with His discipline and wrath. Bruce not only searches out the public defections from the kingly claims of Christ (upon the nations and His church), but deals with individual sanctification in a manner seldom heard. This is one of the best sermons that we have ever heard -- highly recommended!

CALVIN, JOHN

Comparison Between the False Church and the True
This is the famous ecclesiastical section of Calvin's Institutes
(Book 4, Chapter 2, Beveridge edition), so often referred to in debates concerning the nature of the visible church. It includes, in section 12, the indispensable distinction made by Calvin regarding the two ways in which the church is visible (i.e. as seen in those professing the truth [with their children] and also as corporately constituted). Calvin here recognizes the visible church at Rome in that the elect are present at Rome, but goes on to call for separation from Rome in that she, as a corporate entity (being a harlot and not Christ's chaste bride), is not duly (or lawfully) constituted. The Battles edition of the Institutes (section twelve in this chapter, "The sound elements do not make the corrupted church a true church"), beautifully translates Calvin's summary of this Scripturally faithful argument,

However, when we categorically deny to the papists the title of the church, we do not for this reason impugn the existence of churches among them. Rather, we are only contending about the true and lawful constitution of the church, required in the communion not only of the sacraments (which are the signs of profession) but also especially of doctrine. Daniel [Dan. 9:27] and Paul [II Thess. 2:4] foretold that Antichrist would sit in the Temple of God. With us, it is the Roman pontiff we make the leader and standard bearer of that wicked and abominable kingdom. The fact that his seat is placed in the Temple of God signifies that his reign was not to be such as to wipe out either the name of Christ or of the church. From this it therefore is evident that we by no means deny that the churches under his tyranny remain churches. But these he has profaned by his sacrilegious impiety, afflicted by his inhuman domination, corrupted and well-nigh killed by his evil and deadly doctrines, which are like poisoned drinks. In them Christ lies hidden, half buried, the gospel overthrown, piety scattered, the worship of God nearly wiped out. In them, briefly, everything is so confused that there we see the face of Babylon rather than that of the Holy City of God. To sum up, I call them churches to the extent that the Lord wonderfully preserves in them a remnant of his people, however woefully dispersed and scattered, and to the extent that some marks of the church remain--especially those marks whose effectiveness neither the devil's wiles nor human depravity can destroy (note: this is why the Reformers accepted Roman Catholic baptisms as valid, though not lawful--RB). But on the other hand, because in them those marks have been erased to which we should pay particular regard in this discourse, I say that every one of their congregations and their whole body lack the lawful form of the church (emphasis added).

Without the understanding of Calvin's (and the bulk of other major Reformers) ecclesiology on this point, it is impossible to fully appreciate the Reformer's position regarding separation, schism, the sacraments, the ministry, eschatology, etc. Don't miss this important work!

CALVIN, JOHN

Shunning the Unlawful Rites of the Ungodly and Preserving the Purity of the Christian Religion
Herein Calvin maintains the sinfulness of outward conformity to false worship. Dealing with a major problem of his day, Calvin answers the question, "Is it lawful for a person who has renounced Popery in his heart to conform outwardly to its rites, for the purpose of avoiding persecution, or for any other cause?" He shows that false worship should never be tolerated or participated in (even by your bodily presence), no matter what the cost - whether it be persecution, exile, or death. For his faithfulness in this matter, he was greatly scorned. Obvious parallels to our day abound, not the least of which include the Lordship controversy, false ecumenism, rampant idolatry in the false rites maintained in the public worship of apostate Protestantism, and in the rise of Roman Catholic harlot. A good related item is Bradford's The Hurt of Hearing Mass

CHINIQUY, CHARLES

The Priest, the Woman, and the Confessional (c. 1890)
Chiniquy was one of the most famous Romanist priests to leave the pretended Romish communion and join the Presbyterians. This book contains important original documents establishing the high character and standing of pastor Chiniquy when in the church of Rome. It also demonstrates, on the testimony of a long-time insider, how the harlotries of the Roman whore defile the body as well as the mind and soul. This is rarely made more evident than in what is here revealed by the ex-priest Chiniquy. Chiniquy calls the confessional the "modern Sodom," and shows how auricular confession destroys all the sacred ties of marriage and human society. He also makes the case as to why this devilish monstrosity should not be tolerated among civilized nations. Boettner, in his book Roman Catholicism
(pp. 212-213) adds the following: "Father Charles Chiniquy, after spending 25 years as a Roman Catholic Priest in Canada and the United States, renounced the Roman Church and the priesthood and in the following paragraphs expressed his sense of humiliation and shame at having ever engaged in the process of the confessional."

With a blush on my face, and regret in my heart, I confess before God and man, that I have been through the confessional, plunged for 25 years in that bottomless sea of iniquity, in which the blind priests of Rome have to swim day and night. I had to learn by heart the infamous questions which the church of Rome forces every priest to learn. I had to put these impure, immoral questions to women and girls who were confessing their sins to me. Those questions, and the answers they elicit, are so debasing that only a man who has lost every sense of shame can put them to any women. Yes, I was bound in conscience, to put into the ears, the mind, the imagination, the memory, the heart and soul of women and girls, questions of such a nature, the direct and immediate tendency of which is to fill the minds and hearts of both priests and penitents with thoughts of temptations of such a degrading nature, that I do not know any words adequate to express them. Pagan antiquity has never seen any institution more polluting than the confessional. I have lived 25 years in the atmosphere of the confessional. I was degraded and polluted by the confessional just as all the priests of Rome are. It has required the whole blood of the great Victim, who died on Calvary for sinners, to purify me (pp. 67-68 in The Priest, Woman, and the Confessional)

Boettner continues, "This book by Charles Chiniquy is, we believe, the best available dealing with all phases of the confessional, and should be read by everyone who would have a clear understanding of the evils involved in that institution. It describes conditions which existed in Montreal and in other parts of Canada in the middle nineteenth century, and shows the depths to which the confessional tends if unrestrained by evangelical forces."

CHURCH OF SCOTLAND GENERAL ASSEMBLY 1638-1649

The Acts of the General Assemblies of the Church of Scotland, From the Year 1638 to the Year 1649 Inclusive (1682)
Exceedingly rare, these are the acts from what many consider the greatest general assembly gatherings since the days of the apostles. The work accomplished and ratified at these meetings has been called "the most perfect model" of Presbyterial Church Government "as yet attained." Sitting during the momentous days of the Covenants (National and Solemn League) and the Westminster Assembly, this general assembly included the likes of Samuel Rutherford and George Gillespie. Judicially binding on covenanted Presbyterians (WCF 31:3),
these Acts demonstrate how these godly leaders officially dealt with individual, family, ecclesiastical and civil Reformation (including national and international matters). Furthermore, it should not be forgotten that these rulings had major national and international ramifications in their day and that they still guide faithful Presbyterians at the close of the twentieth century (as terms of ministerial and Christian communion in the Reformed Presbyterian church). Moreover, they contain "noble examples to be followed in testifying against all corruptions embodied in the constitutions of either churches or states" (Reformed Presbytery, Act, Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation, p. 216). Christ's Kingship has never since been so boldly and clearly proclaimed to the nations by a duly constituted general assembly -- neither has His rule and reign been upheld and actually embodied into the laws of a nation (civil and ecclesiastical) as it was during these days in Scotland. Much of this can be attributed to the work (humanly speaking) done by the ministers present while these Acts were debated and passed. Regarding doctrine, worship, government and discipline there are few books that will be as helpful -- especially to elders and those advanced in the faith. Additionally, if you want a glimpse at the heart of the second Reformation this is one of the best places to look. It may also be considered "the eye of the Puritan storm," seeing that the Scottish Covenanters exerted such a godly influence among their English Presbyterian brothers (and the Westminster Assembly) during these days -- the two nations having covenanted with God (in the Solemn League and Covenant) for the international "reformation and defence of religion... the peace and safety of the three kingdoms... the glory of God, and the advancement of the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, etc." Over 500 pages and indexed for easy reference to all major topics.

CHURCH OF SCOTLAND GENERAL ASSEMBLY 1639

The Declinatour and Protestation of the Some Some-times Pretended Bishops, Presented in the Face of the Last Assembly. Refuted and Found Futile, But Full of Insolent Reproaches, and Bold Assertions (1639)
An exceedingly rare title marking the continuing rise, at critical juncture, of the covenanted Reformed Presbyterian church. Members of this General Assembly and signatories to this protestation include Samuel Rutherford, David Dickson, Robert Baillie and even James Sharp (who later apostatized to the camp of the Prelatical antichrist and persecuted [and murdered] the covenanters he once owned as brothers). This book refutes the charges of the prelates, while exposing their many errors (which included teaching Arminianism, Popery, conditional election, the power of free-will resisting effectual grace, that the Pope is not the Antichrist, that Rome is the true church [constitutionally], that worship is not regulated by the Word of God [the regulative principle], that the earlier reformers were deformers; and denying limited atonement, justification by faith alone, predestination, and a number of other revealed truths of Scripture.)

COVENANTED MINISTERS OF SCOTLAND

Sermons in Times of Persecution in Scotland (1880 edition)
This book (of 674 pages) records some of the most powerful sermons ever put into print, most being delivered during the "killing times" in Scotland. These faithful preachers were daily in danger of losing their earthly lives for their testimony to the truth of Christ's kingship (which they proclaim here) -- and many were eventually martyred for His covenanted cause. The original title of this book, instructive in itself, read (in part), "A Collection of Lectures and Sermons Preached upon Several Subjects, Mostly in the Time of the Late Persecution. Wherein a Faithful Doctrinal Testimony is Transmitted to Posterity for the Doctrine, Worship, Discipline and Government of the Church of Scotland against Popery, Prelacy, Erastianism, etc.... and a Sermon on the Breach of Covenant by Mr. John Guthrie." Each set of sermons in this book is prefaced with a helpful three to six page biographical notice. The following ministers are included (with the number of their sermons in this book noted in parentheses after their name): William Guthrie (17); Michael Bruce (3); John Weldwood (4); Richard Cameron (7 sermons and 1 lecture); Donald Cargill (7 sermons and 3 lectures); Alexander Peden (2); Alexander Shields (2 sermons and 1 lecture); John Livingstone (1 sermon and 1 sacramental discourse); John Welch (1 sermon and 1 sacramental discourse); John Guthrie (1). Includes illustrations and the original preface (written March 19, 1779) by John Howie (author of The Scots Worthies
). An instructive and useful commemorative sermon, "A Third Reformation Necessary: or, The Piety, Principles, and Patriotism of Scotland's Covenanted Martyrs; With Application to the Present Times," by Kerr, preached on the bi-cententary of the covenanting struggle, is also included.

DURHAM, JAMES

The Law Unsealed; or, a Practical Exposition of the Ten Commandments. With a Resolution of Several Momentous Questions and Cases of Conscience. (1675, 1802 edition)
Durham, a Scottish Covenanter, was known as a "'very candid and searching preacher,' who in an instant was 'in the inmost corners of your bosom,' though with the utmost 'caution and meekness, without giving any of his hearers the smallest ground to fret and repine at his freedom in dealing with them'" (Carstairs cited in the Dictionary of Scottish Church History
, p. 266). John Owen, in his letter introducing the reader to this volume, writes, "In the whole a full testimony is given, not only against the profligate lives of many, called Christians, but that barren careless profession also, which too many satisfy themselves withal, who pretend more unto the truth and power of religion. And as those who are sincere in their obedience may, in the examination of themselves, by the rules here laid down, discern the decays which possibly they have fallen under in this hour of temptation, which is come on the face of the earth, to try them that dwell therein, so also may they be directed in their Christian course unto the glory of God, and the comfort of their own souls." Durham's lectures deal with each commandment in order and the volume contains "An Alphabetical Table of the Principal Matters Handled in the Whole Book;" making it eminently practical, and a very useful aid to the study of God's holy, just, good and spiritual law (Rom. 7:12). 422 pages.

DURHAM, JAMES

The Unsearchable Riches of Christ and of Grace and Glory In and Through Him; Diligently Searched Into, Clearly Unfolded, and Comfortably Holden Forth, in Fourteen Rich Gospel Sermons Preached on Several Texts, at Communions in Glasgow (1685, 1764 edition)
These communion sermons cover topics such as: the great danger of unworthy communing; the great sin of not discerning the Lord's body; gospel preparations are the strongest invitations; after God speaks peace, turn not again to folly; right covenanting with God, a business of the greatest concern; heart-melting is a good frame for covenanting with God; we should stir up ourselves to covenant with God; believers' sweetest communion is with Christ in heaven; etc. The tenor of this book could be summed up in this statement excerpted from the Epistle Dedicatory and Prefatory,
"Beware of all sinful dalliances with idols, whereby the soul is estranged from communion with God; for there is no agreement betwixt the temple of God and idols, from love to fellowship with him, and from zeal to his glory, bid them all, with indignation, be gone, saying to them, What have we any more to do with idols? and as to a menstruous cloth, Get you hence" (bold emphasis added. pp. xi-xii). Durham was a well-known Presbyterian Covenanter (who openly sided with the Protesters as he neared his death) -- and Covenanter communion sermons often produced some of the richest gospel fare one is likely to encounter. Taste of this fine feast and you will see for yourself what we mean.

FRASER, JAMES (of Brae)

The Lawfulness and Duty of Separation from Corrupt Ministers and Churches Explained and Vindicated (1744)
This is one of the most comprehensive treatises dealing with the lawfulness and duty of separation. It does not shy away from the hard biblical questions, but rather meets them head on. Fraser covers all the major biblical reasons for separation, both in general and in particular. Some of these Scriptural reasons for separation include (examples in parentheses are selected to fit our contemporary situation in accord with the general headings found in the book -- though a number of these specific errors are also dealt with in the book itself): 1.) Heresy, or error in doctrine (e.g. Arminianism, Pelagianism, Romanism, the denial of the regulative principle of worship, antinomianism, legalism, etc.); 2.) Idolatry in
public worship (e.g. singing hymns of human composition, paedocommunion and open communion, the use of musical instruments, women speaking or preaching, anti-paedobaptism, Charismatic [or anabaptistic] folly and excesses, malignancy [anti-covenanting], etc.); 3.) Tyranny in government (e.g. Popery, Prelacy, Independency, etc.); 4.) Sinful terms of communion (e.g. any terms which deny or ignore the attainments of the covenanted Reformation or in any way contravene Scripture); 5.) Tolerationism (e.g. refusing to discipline the scandalous, open communion and countenancing false ministers or false governments or false doctrine, etc.). Many other areas are also dealt with, not the least of which include a strong testimony against the Prelatical Priest George Whitefield (who, as the preface notes, is "a person leavened with gross errors, enthusiastic delusions, etc."). In the publisher's original reasons for publication we read, "In this book the case and nature of schism and separation is cleared, and the true scriptural terms of church-communion, and grounds of separation from corrupt churches and ministers, carrying on backsliding courses from the covenanted Reformation-principles..., are clearly handled, and the same proven to be just and warrantable grounds of separation, and many useful cases of conscience concerning separation; and what are just and warrantable grounds of separation and what are not, are solidly, learnedly, and accurately discussed and resolved, and the case of separation clearly stated, handled and determined; and separation from corrupt ministers and churches is fully vindicated; and the true Scripture marks of time-servers and hirelings, who should be separated from, are given from the Word of God." Calvin, Knox, Rutherford, Gillespie, Durham, Owen (who repented of his Independency and embraced Presbyterianism just before he died) and a host of other notable Reformers are cited throughout. Occasional hearing and occasional communion are also exposed and rebuked from Scripture. Appended to the book is, "The Reasons agreed upon by the Reformers of the Church of Scotland, For which the Book of Common Prayer, urged upon Scotland, Anno 1637 was refused. As also the Reasons agreed upon by the Assembly of Divines at Westminster, for laying aside the English Book of Common Prayer. Together with Mr. George Graham's Renunciation and Abjuration of Episcopacy." This is an almost flawless photocopy of this exceedingly rare and valuable book (which was obtained at great expense from the Bodleian Library [Oxford University] in England). It is one of the major Reformed classics concerning the topics that it addresses and it answers many common questions which Christians raise today regarding church affiliation. It is also a much needed landmark of Reformation testimony against the white devils of Independency and sectarianism and the black devils of Popery and Prelacy -- which can be seen to be covering the land once again -- contrary to the teaching of the Word of God and the attainments fought (and died) for during the second Reformation. 239 pages.

GRANT, MAURICE

No King But Christ: The Story of Donald Cargill
A Covenanter and field-preacher, Cargill studied under Samuel Rutherford at St. Andrews. For opposing the introduction of Episcopacy, he was ejected in the great ejection of 1662. He later refused government indulgences and after returning from Holland (to preach with Richard Cameron in Scotland) he publicly excommunicated Charles II and other leading "government" officials. A large reward was then placed on his head and after many narrow escapes he was apprehended by the emissaries of the beast. For his testimony to the truth he was tried and convicted of treason and executed on July 27, 1681. This is a well researched book telling the stirring story of faithfulness (to the covenanted cause of Christ) and martyrdom. In the preface to this book the author wisely comments, "Some of the traditions that have grown up around the men and women who suffered for their faith in seventeenth-century Scotland have tended to represent them as adherents of a movement which was diverse in some way from the main current of Scottish Presbyterianism. Cargill is well enough known as one of the principal figures of the period, but it is around him particularly that many of these misconceptions have tended to concentrate. Too often he has been depicted, even by not unfriendly hands, as something of an austere dogmatist, cling obstinately to a fanatical creed which brought himself and his followers into needless conflict with the authorities. It has been part of my purpose to show that, on the contrary, the principles for which Cargill contended lay at the very heart of the Scottish reformed tradition, and that the actions which he took were of the highest importance in preserving the historic testimony of the Scottish church. The result is, I hope, to place Cargill's position in a truer historical perspective and to dispel some of the misunderstandings which have gathered around his life and character."

Peter Ramus and the Educational Reformation of the Sixteenth Century
The author writes that Ramus "freed the human spirit from the dungeon of Aristotle, and drew it forth from the medieval twilight. He improved all the literary and expression studies, and helped give mathematics and science a start. It seems fitting, therefore, to account Peter Ramus a leader in sixteenth-century reforms..." Graves also notes that Ramus "was probably the foremost French philosopher of his century, and he stands well among the great educators, effective orators, and lofty characters of the world's history."

The Jesuits long ago succeeded in burying Reformation historicism under the rubbish pile of their upstart theories of preterism and futurism -- and the popish beast loves it so. As the author states, "We have suffered prophetic anti-papal truth to be too much forgotten. This generation is dangerously latitudinarian -- indifferent to truth and error on points which Scripture is tremendously decided and absolutely clear. These lectures, simple and popular as they are, will, it is hoped, open many minds to perceive that the Bible gives no uncertain sound as to Romanism, and that those who will be guided by its teachings must shun an apostasy against which the sorest judgements are denounced."

HENDERSON, ALEXANDER

Obedience is Better than Sacrifice ($2.98, cassette)
Read by Elder Lyndon Dohms from the book Sermons, Prayers and Pulpit Addresses
. Henderson was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly and the principal architect of the Solemn League and Covenant. Some consider him as only second to Knox in regard to his work as a Scottish Reformer. This sermon, on Psalm 40:6-8, was preached in Scotland just before Henderson left for the Westminster Assembly and exhorts Christians to zealousness -- especially in days of great declension.

LEE, NIGEL

Antichrist in Scripture: Luther and Calvin's Doctrine of the Antichrist
Few Christians know that the anti-Protestant Futurist theory originated with a Spanish Jesuit by the name of Ribera, who, in 1585, published a Commentary on the Revelation, in which he laboured to turn aside the Protestant application of the Apocalyptic prophecies and symbols from the church of Rome. It is also not well known that the anti-Protestant Praterite (preterist) theory came from the pen of a Spanish Jesuit, Alcasar of Seville, who in 1615 published a work having in view the same end as Ribera, viz, to set aside the commonly accepted Reformation view that the Roman Papacy is the Antichrist (adapted from Original Covenanter and Contending Witness
magazine). This books shows how and why "the Reformers denominated the papacy as Antichrist." Some quotes from the writings of Calvin and Luther appear here in English for the first time. Regarding the Protestant testimony set forth herein Paisley has stated, "the preaching of the Great Cloud of Witnesses of all ages in the Church is true... that the little horn is none other than the Dynasty of Rome's Popes and that therefore THE POPE IS THE ANTICHRIST." This view (the "continuous historical Protestant theory") stands in agreement with Luther, Calvin, Knox, the Westminster Divines, Owen, Ames, Spurgeon, Baxter, Matthew Henry, Jonathan Edwards, Cunningham, Ryle, Cotton, Brown, and virtually all of the other standard Protestant interpreters of the book of Revelation. "Lee provides several pages of useful references on this topic in the various Protestant Confessions of Faith. He points out how the Westminster Confession and the Preamble to the Decrees of Dordt 1618-19 both clearly denominate the Papacy as the antichrist. He concludes his book with a useful chapter summarizing the contents" (British Reformed Journal, April, 1993). Have you fallen for a Jesuit ruse or are you standing in the footsteps of the flock?

The Covenants of Scotland (1914)
Principal Whyte calls this "a masterly treatise," which "will open the eyes of even well-read people." He further notes that "(e)very one of the 31 covenants here discussed has a history of the first importance to all... and specially so at the present time." The author writes, "(a)ll that is attempted is to present the texts of the Covenants, to set forth the events which led to the framing and subscribing of each, and also to examine some of the results which followed." One covenant, "The Succession Band or Covenant" (1599) is believed to be published for the first time in this book.

MANTON, THOMAS

All Things Work For Good ($5.96, 2 cassettes) Read by Elder Lyndon Dohms. Many popular misconceptions surround Romans 8:28: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" -- and Manton explodes them all in classic Puritan style. He shows that sin does not do good as sin, but as it is repented of. He gives many reasons why the word "all" in Romans 8:28 must be limited by the analogy of faith (as Calvinists rightly limit the word "all" in regard to soteriology when it is warranted -- or as when a conductor shouts "all aboard," but only lets those who have tickets on the train). Furthermore, Manton deals with the misuse of providence and shows why suffering is good for those who are soft-hearted (or who are softened by it); but he also notes how suffering can be a curse to those who harden their hearts in such situations. He speaks of pleasure as "the great sorcerer enchanting mankind" and shows why God gives some over to their lusts. At one point he counters the reprobate's view of the problem of evil, answering the question "If there is an all-powerful God how is there evil?" with "If there is no God how is there good?" There is much to ponder and meditate upon in these notably outstanding and practical sermons taken from Manton's Works (Sermon 37). Though this review may seem to dwell on the polemical value of this work, Manton's preaching always has much which all the lovers of the Lord Jesus Christ will find very heartening and encouraging.

MANTON, THOMAS

David's Covenanting Our Duty Also ($5.96, 2 cassettes) Read by Elder Lyndon Dohms. Manton was a covenanted English Presbyterian (he swore the Solemn League and Covenant). He was also chosen to write the "Epistle to the Reader" in the Westminster Confession of Faith (which speaks volumes as to his credibility among the preachers and scholars of his day). Sermons like this show us the great depth of the knowledge that was prevalent during the covenanting period, not only in Scotland, but in England also.

MANTON, THOMAS

Sanctification, Perfection and Scripture ($2.98, 1 cassettes) Read by Elder Lyndon Dohms. Another testimony to the plethora of powerful sermons that were being preached by the covenanted English Presbyterians of the mid-seventeenth century.

M'CRIE, THOMAS

History of the Progress and Suppression of the Reformation in Italy in the Sixteenth Century (1856)
This book has been translated into French, Dutch, German and Italian. "The circulation" of this book, notes the advertisement to the second edition (in 1856), "especially in the language of the natives of Italy, has, as might be expected, roused the jealousy of the Court of Rome. Accordingly, in the Index of Prohibited Books, by command of Pope Gregory XVI, under the decree of 22d September 1836, the Italian version of Dr. M'Crie's Progress and Suppression of the Reformation in Italy, takes its place with other criminals... In the famous Encyclical Letter, published by the same pontiff on the 8th May 1844, against the Bible Society and the Christian Alliance, our author's work is again denounced in the goodly company of the Bible and the History of the Reformation by Dr. Merle d'Aubigne." Further notes reveal that "the history of the Reformation in Italy was a favorite with the author;" it being "the only work of standard merit on the Reformation in Italy -- ' the one book on the subject,' as it is termed by an Italian correspondent -- (which) has been the production of a Scottish minister, whose time was so occupied by other pursuits, which he held to be of paramount importance, that the wonder must be how he could have contrived to collect, condense, and arrange in such an interesting narrative, the mass of information which it contains." Another interesting sidebar, which M'Crie relays in the Preface to the first edition, shows that "the Index Expurgatorius
of Rome was itself reformed, with the view of preventing it from being known that certain names had once been branded with the stigma of heresy." When your father is the father of lies, as with Rome, you leave quite a trail to expose your wickedness to all those who are open to the truth. The appendix contains some very interesting pieces, not the least of which is a letter written from Rome in 1521 concerning Luther. Items like this give insight (otherwise unavailable) into the intrigues and machinations of Romish whore, as well as painting a clear picture of what the Reformers and those who followed them were facing, as they risked their lives for the cause of Christ. At one point the writer (of this letter) notes that "there is not an intelligent person in Rome who is not perfectly convinced that Martin has spoken the truth in most things; but good men dissemble from dread of the tyrant, and bad men are enraged, because they are forced to hear the truth;" at another point he comments that Luther is "looked upon as a greater enemy to us than the Turk."

M'CRIE, THOMAS

History of the Progress and Suppression of the Reformation in Spain in the Sixteenth Century (1851)
M'Crie, a careful historian, traces the ecclesiastical history of Spain from its earliest days to the writing of this book -- though he focuses on the period of the first Reformation. He shows how numerous factors (including among these the inquisition [from the writings of the secretary to the Inquisition at Madrid], civil tyranny, theological superstition and the general ignorance and licentiousness fostered by Romanism) have all "conspired" to produce powerful obstacles to Christian Reformation, civil liberty and biblical justice. This is not a pretty picture, but it is one which gives a number of insights into the working of the mystery of iniquity. This is a sequel to M'Crie's work on the Reformation in Italy and was written, in part, with the intent of showing that "(w)e are not to conclude that the Spanish martyrs threw away their lives, and spilt their blood in vain." Indexed, 218 pages.

M'CRIE, THOMAS

Life of Knox. Containing Illustrations of the History of the Reformation in Scotland; with Biographical Notices of the Principal Reformers, and Sketches of the Progress of Literature in Scotland During the Sixteenth Century (1855)
Iain Murray, in his stirring introduction to Cunningham's Historical Theology
writes, "The third event marking the commencement of this spiritual movement was the publication of a book in 1811. It was the biography of John Knox by Thomas M'Crie. All over Scotland this work was used to revive the memory of the great Reformer and nothing could have been a more telling protest against the stifling influence of Moderatism. It brought many a student and minister into the experience once described by James Fraser of Brae in his Memoirs: "When I read Knox, I thought I saw another scheme of divinity, much more agreeable to the Scriptures and to my experience than the modern.' M'Crie followed this up in 1819 with a biography of Knox's great successor, Andrew Melville, and these two books became known as the 'Iliad and Odyssey of the Scottish Church.' Just as Homer's heroes fired the hearts of many imitators so M'Crie's biographies aroused a holy ambition in many to follow the noble example of these two spiritual giants." M'Crie's work is an undisputed classic regarding this fiery reformer. It exhibits information on Knox and the Scottish Reformation which has been hid in manuscripts and books which are now little known or consulted. Knox may be the most pertinent first Reformation Reformer to study in our day of widespread idolatry, theological and civil pluralism, anti-Christian government, humanistic law, relativism, false ecumenicity, and the revival of that "masterpiece of Satan," Roman Catholicism. Read everything that you can get your hands on -- either by or about Knox; you'll never be the same again! This is the full unedited text of 484 pages, not available from any other publisher (to our knowledge).

Rather, M'Crie speaks eloquently to Christians who are troubled by the present disarray in the Church. He fully appreciates the biblical obligation to seek unity. Yet, he also recognizes that it is folly to construct a superficial union which sacrifices truth and purity on the altar of expediency," notes Kevin Reed.

PERKINS, WILLIAM

The Whole Treatise of the Cases of Conscience... (1632)
"Called 'the principal architect of Elizabethan Puritanism' and 'the most important Puritan writer,' Perkins was the first theologian of the Reformed English church to gain an international reputation. His preaching manual, The Art of Prophesying
(recently reprinted by the Banner of Truth Trust--RB), is found on nearly every seventeenth century New England book list. ... Perkin's theological legacy extended through his Cambridge students, most prominently William Ames... Perkins's Calvinist theology was presented according to the logic and method of Peter Ramus... Ramism helped Perkins maintain the unity of theology and ethics, provided an educational tool by streamlining logic, fostered plain-style preaching, enhanced the art of memory, provided a tool for biblical interpretation as well as supplying a secure philosophical base on which to build theology," notes the Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith (p. 274). This book is no exception and beautifully illustrates the usefulness of the Ramist method. "Several of Perkins' works have been translated into Latin, French, Dutch, and Spanish" (Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, p. 2337).

PRICE, GREG

Biblical Civil Government Versus the Beast; and, the Basis for Civil Resistance (1996)

This is the best modern testimony for the biblical principles of civil magistracy -- which were so prominent during the height of the second Reformation -- that we have seen. Price documents the teachings of many of the major Reformers (and some of the church fathers) and in an easy reading manner simplifies what can at times become a very complex subject. This particular Reformation message, proclaiming Christ's Kingship over the nations (and the practical outworking of the same), has been buried from the view of the general public for some time now, but is once again being brought to light in this very helpful introductory book. A sobering appendix has been added (written by a friend of the covenanted Reformation) which shows why it is unlawful for a Christian to swear any oath to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. This appendix also compares the points of difference between classic (or historic) Reformed teaching and modern Reformed teaching regarding magistracy and religion. Special attention is given to the OPC, the PCA and the RPCNA and the changes that these groups have made to second Reformation confessional standards (concerning matters related to the civil magistrate). Statements by B.B. Warfield are also contrasted to the older Reformed views. You won't find a better easy-to-read and easy to understand introduction to this important topic -- a topic which impacts directly on every Christian's testimony for the crown rights of King Jesus!

PRICE, GREG

The Auchensaugh Renovation ($5.96, 2 cassettes) This is the story of the renewal of the National and Solemn League and Covenant, which took place under the leadership of John Macmillan (cf. The Cameronian Apostle by Reid) at Auchensaugh, July 24, 1712. Events leading up to this renewal are especially pertinent, as they expose the Satanic tactics which often become most useful to the devil in attacking all revivals and those seeking to return to covenanted attainments. Price notes how Cromwell's tolerationism opened the floodgates of iniquity and helped pave the way (though not intended by the covenant breaking Cromwellians) for the tyranny of Charles II. This set the stage for the corrupted and defective revolution of 1688 and the malignant Revolution church, which left the covenanted Reformation buried under the debris of William's Erastianism, Prelacy (in England and Ireland) and the compromised Presbyterianism of the Revolution Church in Scotland (cf. Clarkson's Plain Reasons for Presbyterians Dissenting from the Revolution Church of Scotland; this Revolution church was the root of much modern day Presbyterian defection and this book still eloquently denounces this defection). The Auchensaugh Renovation cleared away all the Reformation denying rubbish that had accumulated from 1649 to 1712, and "being agreeable to the Word of God" became part of the terms of communion of the Reformed Presbyterian church on Nov. 3, 1712 (cf. Terms of Ministerial and Christian Communion in the Reformed Presbyterian Church, point 4 of 6). It is also interesting to note that at the Lord's Supper (on July 27, 1712) following this covenant renewal, Macmillan, in "fencing the tables" proclaimed, "I excommunicate and debar from this Holy Table of the Lord, all devisers, commanders, users, or approvers, of any religious worship not instituted by God in His Word, all tolerators and countenancers thereof; and by consequence I debar and excommunicate from this Holy Table of the Lord, Queen and Parliament, and all under them, who spread and propagate or tolerate a false and superstitious worship, ay, and until they repent." Furthermore, concerning those who opposed the covenants and the work of reformation, Macmillan trumpeted these faithful words, "I excommunicate and debar all who are opposers of our covenants and covenanted Reformation, and all that have taken oaths contrary to our covenants, and such particularly as are takers of the Oath of Abjuration, whether Ministers or others, until they repent" (Reformed Presbytery, The Auchensaugh Renovation..., p. 55). Beyond the fascinating and detailed story of the history and reasons for the Auchensaugh renovation of the covenants, these studies also clearly and biblically explain the continuing obligation to renew lawful covenants, makes application to our day, and demonstrates how covenanting was foundational to the second Reformation. A fine (and unique) set of tapes defending the attainments of our covenanted Reformation! For more information see our bound photocopy The Auchensaugh Renovation... by the Reformed Presbytery.

PRICE, GREG

Biblical Church Membership ($2.98) Here we have an overview of the second Reformation doctrine of church membership. Price answers a variety of questions related to the biblical standards for church membership, while also distinguishing between the two "levels" of church membership found in Scripture. This discussion leads into some interesting and useful comments concerning close communion. He also deals with little known or understood topics (in our day), relative to the church and church membership. Some of these include the doctrines of biblical uniformity, anti-tolerationism, corporate and historical ecclesiastical attainments, and the idea that the church is revealed in Scripture as a "moral person." Faithful to the original intent of the Westminster standards and the covenanted Reformation of the mid-17th century, this is about as good an overview of this topic that you will currently find on cassette.

PRICE, GREG

The Blessing of Hunger and Thirst ($2.98) A great sermon regarding the practical outworking of the righteousness of Christ in the believers life. This sermons demonstrates why biblically balanced Calvinism has always become a much feared force (among the minions of antichrist) wherever it is found; and a powerful blessing to the nations and peoples which embrace the fullness of the whole counsel of God.

PRICE, GREG

Characteristics of Christians ($2.98) Points out five major distinctive characteristics found in Christians. The last point regarding following in "the footsteps of the flock" (Song 1:8) is not often recognized in our day. This is especially true as it is given corporate significance in its application to the church, as one moral person in space in time, and the relation this has to individual sanctification. "That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past" (Eccl. 3:15. emphasis added).

PRICE, GREG

Christ's Resurrection Power ($2.98) "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God" (Col. 3:1). Price shows how Christ has given us the power to seek that which is above, the benefits of this power, and the great joy the proper use of this doctrine brings.

PRICE, GREG

Christian Liberty and Liberty of Conscience ($7.65, 3 cassettes) Demonstrates from Scripture what Christian liberty is and what it isn't. Shows why this liberty is not a license to sin or an excuse to place man's independent conscience above the word of God (a common mistake in a democratic, egalitarian, atomistic age). Samuel Rutherford battled this error in the mid-seventeenth century in his classic Free Disputation Against Pretended Liberty of Conscience. Price not only applies these teachings to the individual, but to the church and state also; asking the question regarding the latter: "How can a moral wrong be a civil right?" (which applies to many areas of present pagan civil juridical ineptitude -- not the least of which is the abortion holocaust). Uses the alcohol issue to show how fundamentalists and others misuse (and misunderstand) this doctrine; with a lengthy and detailed treatment of this subject defending the believer's freedom to moderately partake of alcohol.

PRICE, GREG

Coping With Change ($2.98) How and why God uses change in our lives to keep us humble and trusting in Him. Shows how change is always good when it involves a change to truth. Arminianism and idolatry are denounced and the victim mentality is exposed as unscriptural.

PRICE, GREG

Deacons: A Christian Paradigm for Power ($2.98) Teaching on the office of deacon and the use of authority. This sermons exhibits the biblical truth that "he that is greatest among you shall be your servant" (Matt. 23:11).

PRICE, GREG

Encouragement for Faithful Elders ($2.98) Answers the question: What does in mean to be a faithful leader in Christ's church? Also gives much practical encouragement.

PRICE, GREG

God's Absolute Sovereignty ($2.98) The heart of biblical Calvinism practically applied to the individual, family, church and state. Also deals with man's responsibility relative to God's predestination. "Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ " (Eph. 1:9-12, emphasis added).

PRICE, GREG

God's Love ($2.98) Love is often best demonstrated in the midst of suffering and this sermon shows how God demonstrated His love toward the elect in Christ's suffering and death. Price also teaches us what we can learn from this holy pattern.

PRICE, GREG

Heart Religion: Biblical Mercy ($2.98) A searching sermon explaining what mercy is and how mercy and justice (i.e. God's law) are compatible. This tape shows how a heart right with Christ will love mercy and also (at the same time) love and practice God's will as expressed in His commandments. Child-murder (i.e. abortion), euthanasia (i.e. so-called "mercy killing") and other contemporary concerns are also addressed here. Price proclaims the biblical sanction of the death penalty for those who practice the gross violation of the sixth commandment in abortion, while also demonstrating how this is not contrary to God's mercy.

PRICE, GREG

Heart Religion: The Peril of Lukewarmness ($2.98) Our Lord's most severe rebukes were aimed at false toleration, false worship, spiritual apathy, godless indifference, neutrality in His cause and mere external religion. In this sermon Price deals with Rev. 3:14-21 (Laodicea) and how to prevent these prevalent sins.

PRICE, GREG

Humor, Mourning and the Effects of Sin ($2.98) Taking "Blessed are they that mourn" as his text, Price contrasts worldly philosophy with the teaching of Scripture. He shows what this Scripture is referring to (in the antithesis between Christ and Satan), who it is that mourns, what they mourn over, and what blessing they are promised. Biblical mourning is contrasted throughout with the worldly levity and jesting that has become prominent in Christian circles -- and even in pulpits. Price asks: How can a Christian laugh and joke about matters which grieve the Holy Spirit and for which God's wrath is poured out? Most modern humor is shown to be sinful and the effects of this sin, and sin in general, are noted. This is a searching and stirring sermon dealing with personal and corporate sanctification and should profit all those who are serious about the faith.

PRICE, GREG

Husbands and Biblical Leadership ($5.96, 2 cassettes) Enumerates and explains the qualities which mark out a leader in the Bible -- in opposition to much of what the world teaches and preaches -- and gives many specifics by which husbands will be helped to glorify God in their Scripturally ordained position as head of the house. Deals with the true nature of authority, ministry, sacrifice and humility, while blasting the modern scourges of egalitarianism, feminism and antinomianism.

PRICE, GREG

Legalism and Licentiousness Exposed and Refuted ($2.98) Helps the Christian to walk the narrow path by recognizing and avoiding these two major pitfalls (both in practice and doctrine). Demonstrates how much of what passes for freedom today (both individually, ecclesiastically and nationally) is really bondage to sin. Deals with Romanism, Arminianism, Antinomianism and many other enemies to the faith.

PRICE, GREG

Loving the Brethren and Christian Liberty ($2.98) Explains why the law of love and the law of liberty must operate together. Shows how loving God means keeping His law, "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous" (1 John 5:3); and how loving of brethren means the same thing, "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments" (1 John 5:2). Also demonstrates how love is not toleration of sin; why the the Lord hates false doctrine; and how it is our duty to separate ourselves from error and evil -- even when it is found among professing Christians (Rom 16:17).

PRICE, GREG

Marks of a Faithful Ministry ($2.98) Covers the major qualifications of elders and demonstrates how fervent prayer, humility and the faithful proclamation of the whole counsel of God are Scriptural marks of faithful ministries. Deals with modern innovators (who jest in the pulpit, hide the hard truths of Scripture from their congregations, etc.) and idolaters (who use drama, dance, etc., as means of public worship), warning the sheep of the baleful (baal-full) influence of such men. Touches on the necessity of separation from backslidden and false ministers.

PRICE, GREG

The National Covenant of Scotland (2 cassettes, $5.96) This covenant has been considered (along with the Solemn League and Covenant) as one of two major historical covenants binding the moral person of the church -- since the days of the covenants of Old Testament Israel. Price gives a fascinating account of what led up to this watershed document, what is contained in it (and why) and shows why this is of great importance to the church today. If you are interested in the present testimony concerning the Lord's covenanted Zion, this is one of the best places to start. Teaching like this has not been heard in North America for some time and it marks the revival of the most consistent Calvinism that the church has attained thus far in history.

PRICE, GREG

Objections to Covenanting Answered ($2.98) A powerful example of why the teaching prevalent during the days of the height of the second Reformation brought international transformation to all areas of life -- including whole nations covenanting with Christ to uphold His word and law! This lecture also includes some of the most controversial teaching (near the end of the tape) that you are likely to hear from any living minister of Christ -- though Knox, Rutherford, Renwick and many other covenanted Presbyterian ministers often put their lives on the line for these very truths. These truths continue to be a point of standing testimony in our day of ecumenical apostasy, theological declension, and ecclesiastical and civil deformation. "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27) was never more true than regarding the lost and buried attainments (of the covenanted Reformation) being brought to light once again in our day through the preaching and teaching of Greg Price.

PRICE, GREG

Peace and Freedom From Guilt ($2.98) Practical encouragement regarding living by faith in the finished work of Christ, maintaining freedom from the guilt of your sin and keeping a clear conscience before the omniscient (all knowing) God of Scripture.

PRICE, GREG

Presbyterianism and the Preservation of the Church ($2.98) Price proves why Presbyterianism is the only form of church government that is instituted of God in Scripture. He then takes this truth and demonstrates the practical outworking, as seen in the blessings or curses of God, upon those who either obey or stumble at this teaching. This sermon also instructs believers in the marks of the true church and warns against joining with those corrupted bodies which are not biblically constituted. Some of the same truths are applied to nations (and civil "ministers"). Price notes that unlawful, covenant-breaking, Christ-rejecting, nations presently include Canada and the USA. He also blasts Arminianism, schism (showing how we must sometimes separate to avoid schism) and idolatry! The old Reformation fires burn hot here.

PRICE, GREG

Protecting and Preserving the Truth ($2.98) A pointed and practical sermon revolving around the question: What are you willing to give up for the truth? Demonstrates how anything in your life that you would not forsake for THE TRUTH, including life itself, is an idol!

PRICE, GREG

Rebuking the Synagogue of Satan ($2.98) Working from Rev. 3:7-9 (the letter to the church at Philadelphia) this sermon clearly sets forth the source of all true authority and the believer's relation to "authorities" -- with special emphasis on derivative ecclesiastical authority and the constitutional nature of the visible church. Application is made in giving guidelines by which the true church can be known from the false. Calvin's doctrine of the visible church is proclaimed in a way that is seldom heard in our day (even in "Reformed" circles). The marks of the true church, as Scripturally recognized by our Reformed forefathers, are testified to (and explained) from Knox's Scottish Confession of Faith (1560) and Calvin's Institutes (cf. 4.2.12). Separation from false churches is set forth as a duty and the toleration of error, heresy and idolatry -- among those that take the name of Christ -- is shown not only to militate against Christ's love and grace, but is exposed as a serious and heinous sin! These teachings may be too much for most (in our day of antichristian tolerationism and the pretended love that winks at sin) -- but they are clearly faithful to Scripture and our Reformation forefathers.

PRICE, GREG

Reformation Politics Versus the Beast ($2.98) An excellent summary of Price's latest book Biblical Civil Government Versus the Beast; and, the Basis for Civil Resistance. Here Price lays out the biblical and historical basis for the most highly developed aspects of Reformation thought regarding civil government. He explains the biblical view of civil magistracy and applies it to the present situation, showing why most modern civil rulers are tyrants and thus should not be given conscientious submission (according to Romans 13:1-7). Price's list of how modern rulers habitually violate each of the ten commandments should prove illuminating, as well as his citations from the searing indictments against wicked rulers given from famous Reformed leaders of the past. This book also discusses tactics of Christian resistance, while answering the question: Should Christians hold office or vote in the present circumstances? This highly controversial cassette will certainly seem shocking to those who are not familiar with Reformation thought on this topic -- but it is faithful to Scripture, the original confessions of the Reformation and the testimony of the covenanting martyrs (who gave their lives resisting the civil beast and proclaiming Christ's absolute Kingship over the nations).

PRICE, GREG

Revival of Family Religion, The ($2.98) This sermon includes much practical application from Scripture -- given to help parents raise godly families. It touches on family worship, loving discipline, education, as well as many other areas of parental responsibility (under God). Price shows how, generally speaking, the church is only as strong as the families in the church -- and nations are only as strong as the churches and families that comprise them. This is a good example of modern day Puritan preaching on the family.

PRICE, GREG

The Solemn League and Covenant ($2.98) Hetherington, concerning the Solemn League and Covenant (the epitome of second Reformation attainments) writes, "no man who is able to understand its nature, and to feel and appreciate its spirit and its aim, will deny it to be the wisest, the sublimest, and the most sacred document ever framed by uninspired men" (History of the Westminster Assembly of Divines, [1856] SWRB reprint 1993, p. 134). What took place during the days of the writing and international subscriptions to the Solemn League and Covenant has been cited before as a foretaste of the millennial glory to come. The Reformed Presbytery writes, "These modern pigmies are too far dwarfed in intellectual stature to measure the altitude, of our glorious Covenanted Reformation -- a Reformation which, imbedded in the law and the covenant of God, has already brought civil and ecclesiastical freedom to many millions; and which is doubtless destined to be laid in the foundation of reconstructed society in the millennial period of the world" (A Short Vindication of Our Covenanted Reformation, [1879] SWRB reprint 1996, p. 4). In this lecture Price gives a brief history of the three major causes leading up to the Solemn League and Covenant. These were: 1.) the erroneous beliefs and practices associated with the so-called divine right of Kings; 2.) the apostasy of Prelacy in doctrine (e.g. the Arminianism of Rome), worship (tolerating and introducing anti-regulativist Romish superstitions), and government (against the divine right of Presbyterianism) -- all three of these areas being a practical denial of sola Scriptura in that man ordained elements were idolatrously adopted over those clearly prescribed in Scripture; 3.) the desire of the Reformers for a covenanted Presbyterian uniformity in church and state. Price shows how many of the national Protestant churches of the day (outside of the British Isles) were also looking into swearing this covenant (including the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Sweden), as a means to biblical unity and uniformity. In fact, this covenant was framed (primarily by Alexander Henderson) with the intention of uniting Protestants worldwide. As Price shows, this goal quickly unraveled with the coming to power of that Judas of the Covenant (Cromwell), his army and the Independents. The descending obligation of this covenant is also covered, and application is made to modern nations (like the USA, Canada, etc.) who are the national posterity of the original covenanters. Application is also made to the apostate modern church (and Price names names). It is also shown how this covenant was a term of communion in the church and how negative civil sanctions were to be applied to those who publicly opposed the Solemn League and Covenant -- students could not even enter college without proof of subscription. Price uses various historical citations from The Acts of the General Assemblies of the Church of Scotland From the Year 1638 to the Year 1649 Inclusive (available from SWRB as a rare bound photocopy) to demonstrate these historical facts. Later defections from the covenanted Reformation, such as those by Charles II and William's civilly and ecclesiastically corrupted Revolution settlement are also dealt with. The second half of the tape summarizes the six articles of the Solemn League and Covenant; concentrating on the biblical (civil, ecclesiastical and individual) responsibilities that were sworn in this covenant. Application is made to our day and the tape closes with some questions regarding American history and government and the Canadian constitution. The Solemn League and Covenant (because it was agreeable to the Word of God) formed the foundation of the second Reformation internationally (as is seen in the letter received by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland on June 4, 1644, from the Scottish commissioners [Rutherford, Gillespie, et al] at the Westminster assembly; cf. The Acts..., pp. 228, 250). This covenant still binds the church and many nations today, and until these "moral persons" renew this covenant (in spirit and in truth) the Lord will continue to prosecute the quarrel of His covenant. Thus, this is an exceedingly important tape as it explains one of the major, modern causes of God's wrath upon the nations and the church. When the churches and nations are granted repentance in (or preparing for) the millennium they will be found "going forth by the footsteps of the flock" (Song 1:8) and not turned "aside by the flock of thy companions" (i.e. those that appear religious but are actually a hindrance to the work of the building of Christ's kingdom, Song of Solomon 1:7, cf. Douglas' Strictures on Occasional Hearing, [1820] SWRB reprint 1996); and there is no "footstep of the flock" more clearly distinguished in the bedrock of history (since the second century) than the Solemn League and Covenant.

PRICE, GREG

Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness ($2.98) Powerful Puritan preaching on the ninth commandment. In keeping with the Westminster Larger Catechism (answer 144) Price teaches that: "The duties required in the ninth commandment are, the preserving and promoting of truth between man and man, and the good name of our neighbor, as well as our own; appearing and standing for the truth; and from the heart, sincerely, freely, clearly, and fully, speaking the truth, and only the truth, in matters of judgment and justice, and in all other things whatsoever; a charitable esteem of our neighbors; loving, desiring, and rejoicing in their good name; sorrowing for, and covering of their infirmities; freely acknowledging of their gifts and graces, defending their innocency; a ready receiving of a good report, and unwillingness to admit of an evil report, concerning them; discouraging talebearers, flatterers, and slanderers; love and care of our own good name, and defending it when need requires; keeping of lawful promises; studying and practicing of whatsoever things are true, honest, lovely, and of good report."

PRICE, GREG

Terms of Communion: Covenants and Covenanting ($19.99, 7 cassettes)
Explains and defends the fourth term of communion, which is "That public, social covenanting is an ordinance of God, obligatory on churches and nations under the New Testament; that the National Covenant and the Solemn League are an exemplification of this divine institution; and that these Deeds are of continued obligation upon the moral person; and in consistency with this, that the Renovation of these Covenants at Auchensaugh, Scotland, 1712 was agreeable to the word of God." Includes the studies offered separately on the National Covenant (2 tapes), the Solemn League and Covenant (1 tape), the Auchensaugh Renovation (2 tapes), as well as two introductory lectures (only available in this set) on the biblical principles related to the ordinance of covenanting, the descending obligation of lawful covenants, objections against covenanting, etc. A thoroughly amazing set of tapes -- among our best!

PRICE, GREG

Weak and Strong Christians Contrasted ($2.98) An overview of Romans 14 in preparation for the three tape series titled: "Christian Liberty and Liberty of Conscience." Shows the differences between weak and strong Christians and their duties to each other. If these biblical teachings were known and practiced there would be much less discord among Christians.

PRICE, GREG

Wives and Biblical Submission ($2.98) The Covenanter view of authority and submission set forth with special application to husbands and wives. Directed primarily to the ladies of the covenant (but containing a good deal of exhortation to husbands), this is about as practical a sermon as you will hear. There was good reason why Puritan families were so strong and why divorce was unheard of among these Calvinists; much of it (as the listener will certainly notice) can be traced back to what Price sets forth in this sermon. If you desire a godly family and a marriage relationship analogous to that which Christ enjoys with his bride (the church) you will be pleased with the strong, uncompromising (and yet loving), biblical stand set forth here. A Price classic!

PURITAN DIVINES

Puritan Sermons Before the English House of Commons (1640-1641)
This is a collection of Puritan sermons preached to "the Honourable House of Commons... Assembled in Parliament" in London at various times during the years 1640 and 1641. This volume includes: "The First Sermon, Preached to the Honourable House... at their Public Fast" by Cornelius Burgess (Nov. 17, 1640); "Sions Joy" by Jeremiah Burroughs (Sept. 7, 1641); "A Peace-Offering to God" by Stephen Marshall (Sept. 7, 1641); "The Love of Truth and Peace" by John Gauden (Nov. 29, 1640); and two other sterling examples of nation-directing second Reformation sermons. Burgess, in the final sermon, exposes the Popish and Jesuitical traitors in the land, while also demonstrating how their treason was the outgrowth of their false and wicked religion, as well as their hatred for God and the truths of the Reformation. These sermons to the civil authorities were an encouragement to further Reformation and played their part in rousing the civil ministers to their calling. They also assisted in laying some of the necessary groundwork which eventually led the parliament to call the Westminster Assembly. Furthermore, they helped to stir these governors to their duty of covenanting the land to Christ, which was later accomplished in the international swearing of the Solemn League and Covenant. Over 350 pages.

RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

Letters of Samuel Rutherford
Spurgeon said, "What a wealth of spiritual ravishment we have here! Rutherford is beyond all praise of men. Like a strong-winged eagle he soars into the highest heaven and with unblenched eye he looks into the mystery of love divine." Continuing, he comments, "let the world know that Spurgeon held Rutherfurd's Letters
to be the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of men... none penetrated further into the innermost heart of holy fellowship with Jesus. Whenever we think of him we compare him to Milton's Uriel, the angel that stood in the sun itself." Richard Baxter commented, "Hold off the Bible, such a book as Mr. Rutherford's Letters, the world never saw the like." And Cecil notes, "It is one of my classics. Were truth the beam, I have no doubt that if Homer, and Virgil, and Horace, and all that the world has agreed to idolize, were weighed against that book, they would be lighter than vanity. He is a real original' (Remains cited in Johnston's The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant). Walker adds his voice to this chorus of praise calling these, "letters which, I may say, stand all alone in religious literature... So far as I know, they are the only letters two centuries old (when he wrote--RB) which are still a practical reality in the religious life of Scotland, England, and America. And criticism cannot get rid of the fact that they continue to retain their hold of human hearts, -- that they have won a place for themselves besides such books as Augustine's Confessions or Thomas a Kempis. (Theologians..., p. 8). This is the Banner of Truth reprint and has been made from the 1891 edition of S.R.'s Letters. It contains Andrew Bonar's sketch of Rutherford's life and biographical notices of his correspondence. It is interesting to note that when these letters were first published in 1664 (note the date, just two years after the great ejection), the book was titled Joshua Redivivus (i.e. revived, RB) or Mr. Rutherford's Letters Divided into Two Parts. The First, Containing those Which were Written from Aberdeen, Where He was Confined by a Sentence of the High Commission, Drawn Forth Against Him, Partly on the Account of His Declining them, Partly Upon the Account of His Non-conformity. The Second, Containing, Some Which were Written from Anworth, Before He was by the Prelates Persecution Thrust from His Ministry; and Others Upon Diverse Occasions Afterward from St. Andrews, London, etc. Now Published, for the Use of All the People of God; But More Particularly, for Those Who Now Are, or Afterward May Be Put to Suffering for Christ and His Cause; By a Well Wisher (Robert M'Ward--RB) to the Work of the People of God. These Scriptures followed to further stress the point of this publication: "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me" (John 16:2-3); and "And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia" (1 Thes. 1:6-7). These letters were put out by Covenanters, for Covenanters, in defense of the covenanted Reformation. They were originally issued just three years after Rutherford's death, by his disciple Robert M'Ward (the "Well Wisher" noted above in the original title). We carry M'Ward's original 45 page preface to the Letters in our rare bound photocopy section under "M'Ward" (this preface is not found in this more recent Banner of Truth hardcover edition which recently went out of print). M'Ward, who was banished to Holland (where he co-ministered with John Brown of Wamphray), notes that his purpose in publishing the first edition of Rutherford's Letters (1664) was to bring comfort and encouragement to those 2000 ministers recently ejected for faithfulness to the Solemn League and Covenant. This was to be accomplished by setting forth Rutherford's example of faithfulness, courage and zeal, as seen throughout these letters, under similar circumstances of suffering. This book was also intended to minister to the myriads of faithful Covenanters who were at that time experiencing increasingly violent persecution and opposition. Another Rutherford masterpiece, not to be missed!

RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

A Survey of the Survey of that Summe of Church-Discipline Penned by Mr. Richard Hooker, Late Pastor of the Church at Hartford upon Connecticut in New England. Wherein The Way of the Churches in N. England is now re-examined; Arguments in favour thereof winnowed; The Principles of that Way discussed; and the Reasons of most seeming strength and nerves removed. (1658)
Hooker "helped found Hartford, Connecticut (1636)... He helped create Connecticut's 'Fundamental Orders' (1638) and was instrumental in forming the New England Confederation (1643)" ( Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith
). In this book Rutherford refutes Hooker's Independent views of church government in great detail. In doing so he has left us much to ponder regarding Presbyterianism, the constitution of the visible church (as it is revealed in Scripture), covenanting, separation, discipline, Arminianism, church communion and much more. Hooker's congregational way is easily accepted by the flesh and is prominently held by a wide range of professing Christians today -- from liberals all the way to those who call themselves Reformed. This book, though it is recommended for advanced study only, should go a long way to correcting this prevalent "democratic/egalitarian" heresy. Rutherford was (and still is through his books) one of the most notable defenders of the divine right of Presbyterianism since the days of the Apostles. This rare book has been generally unavailable to the public (as far as we know) for some three centuries now -- until this reprinting -- and should be welcomed by all lovers of truth.

SCRIBNER, BOB (and Pamela Johnston)

The Reformation in Germany and Switzerland (Documents and Commentary)
"Drawing on a wide range of primary and secondary sources, including many
original documents translated here for the first time (into English--RB) from unpublished archival sources, the authors" bring to light many previously hidden aspects of Reformation thought and development. Of special interest to many will be the final sections of the book dealing with Calvin, Geneva, and the second generation of reform. Here we see the seeds of second reformation thought (i.e. the covenanted Reformation) being planted in Calvin's view and actions relative to social covenanting (e.g. those that would not swear a confessional oath to uphold the Reformation were commanded to leave the city), church discipline, purity of worship, civil authority (i.e. establishments), negative civil sanctions (against Servetus and other heretics), social and political tactics of reform, the use of the printing press, and much more. Luther, Zwingli, the Anabaptists, and major Reformation controversies (images, iconoclasm, liturgies, the Lord's supper, etc.) are also all covered. Much new light is shed on these aspects of the Reformation by the ground-breaking translational work of the authors. A very useful book, from Cambridge University Press, for those interested in seeing some of the original documents and writings from the first Reformation (in English for the first time). This book corrects some of the previous misemphases, regarding Reformation history and thought, that have come from those who have only had recourse to previously translated (into English) documents -- as much of Calvin's writing still remains in languages other than English. Eire's War Against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship from Erasmus to Calvin (Cambridge University Press) is a similar book accomplishing much the same service.

THOMSON, JAMES PRINGLE

Alexander Henderson the Covenanter
"The period which followed the Union of the Crowns of Scotland and England contains the opening of that contest between Presbytery and Episcopacy, which occupies so much of our history, and some of its most interesting episodes took place between 1618-1646, the years which comprise the active public life of him who is the subject of the following pages. For this reason the life and career of Alexander Henderson must always possess the greatest interest to any student of Scottish history... The virtues of the great are apt to be overestimated after they are dead and gone, but there is not one word of exaggeration in the eulogy which Baillie delivered to the General Assembly in 1647,... 'That glorious soul of blessed memory, who now is crowned with the reward of all his labours for God and for us, I wish his remembrance may be fragrant among us, so long as free and pure Assemblies remain in this land, which we hope shall be to the coming of the Lord. You know he spent his strength, and wore out his days, he breathed out his life in the service of God and of his Church. This binds it on our back, as we would not prove ungrateful, to pay him his due. If the thoughts of others be conformed to my inmost sense, in duty and reason, he ought to be accounted by us and posterity the fairest ornament, after John Knox, of incomparable memory, that we the Church of Scotland did enjoy'" (pp. 5, 158). Henderson had a major hand in the writing of and international subscription to the Solemn League and Covenant. He was also one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly.

TURRETIN, FRANCIS

Institutes of Elenctic Theology (Vol. 1): First Through Tenth Topics
Turretin (1623-87) has been called "the best expounder of the doctrine of the Reformed Church" (Samuel Alexander)... and "a towering figure among the Genevan Reformers" (Leon Morris). First published in 1679-85, this work was the fruit of some 30 years' teaching at the Geneva Academy. This is the first complete English edition to be published in the English Language (from the Latin). As an "elenctic" theology -- which affirms and demonstrates the truth in refutation of false doctrine -- the Institutes
contrasts Reformed understandings of Scripture with conflicting theological perspectives, particularly Roman Catholic, Arminian, and Socinian. Both Dabney and Hodge (Charles) assigned the Institutes to their students. In this volume, Turretin treats theology, Scripture,the Trinity, divine decrees,creation, providence, angels, the original state of humanity, sin, and free will. 727 pages.

Life of George Wishart: The Most Distinguished Martyr for the Reformation in Scotland... (1829)
Wishart was a forerunner to the Scottish Reformation. John Knox was once his body guard, but was dismissed by this martyr as the murdering Papists drew near to apprehend him (on the orders of Cardinal Beaton). He was later burned as a heretic. Wishart "translated into English the first Helvetic Confession of Faith" and "helped popularize the doctrines of the Swiss Reformers in Scotland." "It was probably through Wishart that Knox acquired his sense of prophetic vocation" (Dictionary of Scottish Church History, pp. 465, 877). The appendix in this volume deals with the life and execution of Cardinal Beaton and contains biographical sketches of Gawin Dunbar and Sir David Lindsay.

Contains interesting observations on the corporate identity of civil bodies (moral person), the place of the intellectual class (responsibility) and how the fear of characterizing events in terms of right and wrong (testimony) creates a moral vacuum which opens the door to tyranny. The idolatrous, humanistic notions of the Nazi's are also shown to be compatible with Heidegger's philosophy (and his actions).

WAGNER, MICHAEL

Baptists and Infant Baptism (1996)
Wagner was converted in a fundamental Baptist church and is well acquainted with the Baptist views of baptism. Here he has produced a peaceable plea to those who still hold the views he once embraced. In it he deals with the meaning, subjects and mode of baptism; tracing the steps by which he became convinced of the Apostolic/Reformation position. This is an easy to read introduction to this important topic.

WAGNER, MICHAEL

The Declaration of Repudiation: A Public Testimony Against Modern North American Evangelicalism (1996)
Wagner shows how modern Evangelicals have been swallowed up by the beast (civilly and ecclesiastically -- and especially in regard to doctrine) in that they now deny the most important biblical attainments of the Protestant Reformation. Arminianism (the decisionalistic free-will heresy) and man-made innovations in worship are rampant. If the Reformers were around today they would testify, as Wagner does, against modern evangelicalism -- in that the modern evangelicals have adopted more of the basic tenets of Rome than of the Reformation. "(T)he Scriptural theological attainments of the Reformation have been abandoned by modern North American Evangelicalism; and to make matters worse, an unscriptural disdain for doctrine has immunized many evangelicals from a recovery of Reformation truth," states Wagner. This book seeks to repudiate and remedy the deformation of evangelicalism.

WAGNER, MICHAEL

The End of Canada: Divergent Political Cultures and Identities as Centrifugal Forces (1996)
Demonstrates how a lack of cultural and ethical uniformity inevitably leads to division. Looks at the Quebec situation, the Aboriginal political culture and the Reform party. The intolerance of the "tolerationists" -- that is, their intolerance of fundamentalists groups (other than themselves) -- is also touched on.

WAGNER, MICHAEL

Up From Reconstructionism; or, A Short History of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton (1996)
Wagner, a PhD candidate in political science, traces the theological journey of the PRC of Edmonton -- from a Reconstructionist congregation to its present adoption of the covenanted attainments of the second Reformation. He notes where and why Reconstruction has been helpful to the PRC and also shows where and why it has been a hindrance to further Reformation. The paradigms Wagner deals with (in his characteristically irenic style) should be familiar to most Reformed Christians -- making this book an exceedingly helpful introduction to some much larger and more complex areas of thought. The major differences between the testimony of the Reformers (of the 16th and 17th centuries) and the testimony of the modern Reconstructionists is laid out and contrasted in an easy to understand format. Having been a Reconstructionist, Wagner has insights others dealing with Reconstructionism (from the outside) have completely missed. Furthermore, many modern Reconstructionist critiques are miserably flawed and full of heresy and poor scholarship themselves -- thus they lack credibility among those who seek a fair assessment of Christian Reconstruction. This can not be said of this book and we hope that it will encourage Reconstructionists and non-Reconstructionist alike to return to the old paths of the Apostles and our Presbyterian and Reformed forefathers. Books like this (and his previous works) place Wagner among a growing body of young authors, all well studied in theology and history, who are now calling for a third Reformation.

WYLIE, J.A.

The Papacy is the Antichrist (1888)
"The following demonstration is rested on no narrow basis. Its two postulates, like two posterns, admit us into the edifice, but they are not its foundations. The whole economy of Redemption, and the whole course of History are the broad substructions on which the argument is based and built up; and the author humbly submits that it cannot be overturned, or the conclusion arrived at set aside, without dislocating and shaking the structure of both Revelation and Providence. The same line of proof which establishes that Christ is the promised Messiah, conversely applied, establishes that the Roman system is the predicted Apostasy. In the life of Christ we behold the converse of what the Antichrist must be; and in the prophecy of the Antichrist we are shown the converse of what Christ must be, and was. And when we place the Papacy between the two, and compare it with each, we find, on the one hand, that it is the perfect converse of Christ as seen in His life; and, on the other, that it is the perfect image of the Antichrist, as shown in the prophecy of him. We conclude, therefore, that if Jesus of Nazareth be the Christ, the Roman Papacy is the Antichrist" (Wylie's preface, pp. v-vi). This book contains the classic teaching of the Protestant Reformation regarding Antichrist (an integral part of that Reformation, we might add -- as all the Reformed creeds and confessions attest). The easy-reading format and style make this book an ideal introduction to this topic. For more detailed research on the Papacy, by the same author, see Wylie's The Papacy: Its History, Dogmas, Genius, and Prospects
; which in its day won first prize from the Evangelical Alliance for essays on Popery.

NEW TRACTS

*Anderson on Hearing (.15, deals with occasional hearing by showing how attendance at churches which are not faithfully united [first to Christ and his truth and then other like-minded churches] is clearly in violation of Scripture.)

*Calvin, Close Communion and the Coming Reformation (a book review of Alexander and Rufus... by John Anderson [1862]) by Reg Barrow (.25, shows how Calvin practiced close communion and how the biblical view of this ordinance is intended to purify the individual, church and state. Refutes the Popish and paedocommunion heresies [regarding this sacrament], as well as all views of open communion. Also argues that Arminians, anti-paedobaptists, anti-regulativists, and all those who openly violate the law of God (and are unrepentant) should be barred from the Lord's table -- as a corrective measure ordained of God for their recovery. This is Reformation History Notes number two.)

*Guide for Studying the Westminster Confession, In Suggested Order of Reading
by Larry Birger, Jr. (.15, shows the central importance of the Solemn League and Covenant at the Assembly, while suggesting an order of reading which is taken, in part, from the confessional documents themselves.)

*Paleopresbyterianism Versus Neopresbyterianism (the newsletter) by Michael Wagner (.25, demonstrates the major differences between the old [paleo] covenanted Presbyterians of the Westminster Assembly and the new [neo] Presbyterians of our day -- some who claim to uphold the Westminster standards.)

*Presbyterian Worship: Old and New by Kevin Reed (one copy will be sent FREE with any order if requested; for multiple copies contact the author, Kevin Reed, at: Prebyterian Heritage Publications, P.O. Box 180922, Dallas, TX, USA, 75218. This is a review and commentary upon Worship in Spirit and Truth by John Frame. Reed contrasts Reformation worship with the innovations that Frame puts forth in his heretical book.)

*Renwick Versus the Revolution Settlement (.25, demonstrates why James Renwick, a Protesting Covenanter and Christian martyr, would have rejected both the ecclesiastical and civil settlements that took place at the so-called "glorious revolution" of 1688. Many modern Presbyterian and Reformed denominations descend from or (at least) adopt much of the false doctrine propagated at the time of this covenant-breaking settlement; and, even at that, the backslidden Revolution church maintained a much more faithful testimony (at many points) than her modern "harlot daughters" do today.)

*Summary of Plain Reasons for Presbyterians Dissenting from the Revolution Church of Scotland. Also, Their Principles Concerning Civil Government, and the Difference Betwixt the Reformation and Revolution Principles (1731) by Reg Barrow (.15, Plain Reasons is one of the best books explaining the principles of the second Reformation and this newsletter is a short overview of this famous book.)

*Summary, Table of Contents and Location of a Free Copy of Greg Price_s
Biblical Civil Government Versus the Beast; and, the Basis for Civil Resistance (1996) (.15, Price's book is the best modern treatment of the second Reformation position concerning civil matters.)
