Short Account Of The Old Presbyterian Dissenters, Under The Inspection Of The Reformed Presbyteries Posted By: Still Waters





Reformed Presbytery The Scottish Theory Of Ecclesiastical Establishments (1875) Posted By: SWRB "The Scottish Theory of Ecclesiastical Establishments" (1875) by George Smeaton George Smeaton notes, "I have often said that in the Scottish theory we have the ultimate truth on the whole subject of the relations between Church and State, the result of the prayerful investigations and earnest contendings of some of the clearest minds and loftiest characters that adorned the Christian Church during the last three centuries." This is one of the best short treatments of this subject to be found anywhere. It provides key definitions and should help to clear up many misunderstandings, from both the antiestablishmentarians and those Anglican and Continental theories of "State Churches" which have falsely saddled this liberating and God-honoring truth with odiousness to some. In short, Smeaton argues, "It will be necessary, before proceeding farther, to lay down some positions of a more general nature as they are pre-supposed or come to light in every instance of Church Establishment. I shall do little more than state them as fundamental postulates, and I may the sooner come to what is more peculiarly Scottish.

Earnest Contendings Historical Testimony, Church Union And The Second Reformation Posted By: Still Waters .www.puritandownloads.com Historical Testimony, Church Union and the Second Reformation To this it is answered, by no means, every way the contrary, in accordance with the alone infallible rule; for "Christ’s scholars never learn above their Bible." This presbytery believes firmly, that the testimony of Christ’s witnesses is necessarily progressive, and that it will assuredly advance in the face of all opposition till it be "finished." Rev. xi,7. There is no such anomalous document recognized among the faithful witnesses as a "Standing Testimony." All such measures of compromise they must repudiate. The church of God is one, Song vi.9; Eph. iv, 4-6; the only true historical society on earth; Ps.lxxxix,29; cv,10; Rom. iv.13; the only indestructible and immortal corporation. Is. liv,17; Matt. xvi, 18.
