It is the most amazing collection of works I know of in one package to date.

In my opinion, it far surpasses Ages Software and their collections.*

The Puritan and Reformed material presented on these CDs is exceptional.

I am continually amazed at the depth and breadth of information in both collections, and the rarity of works that I now have at my fingertips.

You have done an immeasurable service for the Kingdom of Christ in making these CDs available, and every pastor and theologian should own them without question (they would be foolhardy to pass them by)."

* It is SWRB's opinion that Ages has done an excellent job in making various Reformed works available on CD, so much so that we also distribute a number of their CDs at discounts. Thus, please don't make more out of our publishing this comment than is warranted, as this is a comment we received from one of our customers and it expresses his opinion. As for Ages' work, we rejoice whenever the truth is published, whether through others or through SWRB (as we play only a very small part in the revival of classic Reformation, Puritan and Covenanter thought that is now taking place worldwide through God's marvelous grace). The publication of the best Reformers and Puritans of the past is one of the greatest needs of our time, as this extends the blessings that come through faithful preachers and authors into our day and into the future. Lord willing, the growth in the publishing of faithful works from the past will help stem the tide of the great declension and unfaithfulness which we are now witnessing all around us, even (sadly) among many churches that still call themselves "Presbyterian" and/or "Reformed." So please pray together with us that our Lord will multiple the number of faithful publishers and publications, and that He will give many the heart to stand for the truth no matter the consequences (as He has done for our faithful forefathers, who resisted Satan and sin unto blood and even to martyrdom in many cases). -- RB.


"SWRB's Puritan and Reformation CD libraries are an invaluable source for the study of the history and theology of classic Reformation theology. The collection is remarkable not only for depth of content, but also for the rarity of many of the works. Most seminary libraries will not have even a percentage of the works available on these CD-ROMs. I cannot imagine anyone working in Reformation / historical theology that would not want to use the Puritan and Reformed libraries!"

"I just received your CD collection. One bit of advice: you should instruct your customers to take about 1 week off just to peruse the tables of contents for these CD's, followed by another week off, in order to recover from the state of shock in which they will find themselves.

In all seriousness, this collection is almost impossible to describe. It has to be seen to be believed. As a pastor, my library has just increased dramatically. As a Ph.D. student in Puritan and Post-Reformation studies, I have immediate access to many of the same works for which I would normally need to access through rare book rooms of theological libraries.

Thank you for this labor of love. Thank you for making it accessible, both financially and technologically. May the Lord richly bless you for this service to his people."

"You all are doing a wonderful service by making all these materials so readily available. Having them on my hard drive is BETTER than having access to a rare book library with all of them in hand...

"It's been several weeks now since I received the CDs and have had some time to digest some of them. All I can say is, "WOW!" This is truly a library like no other, and has already paid great dividends not only in my own personal worship and study, but in my teaching as well. I first balked at the price, but after seeing the vastness of the material, I almost feel as though I'm robbing you!

I pray that the Lord will allow you to get these materials into the hands of as many ministers as possible."

Full SWRB CD comment from Dr. Moore:

This collection of 62 CDs is a truly astounding accomplishment. There is nothing like this available to the ordinary Christian on the whole face of the earth.

Now, for the first time ever, ordinary Christians can have direct and near effortless access to the very cream of Puritan and Reformed, as well as Covenanter, literature.

These books are often in fascinating first editions and many are electronically linked and indexed for the first time. The ordinary Christian may here dig into a simply staggering wealth of literature, from devotional and sermonic material to technical and scholarly works. Even in the days of the Long Reformation itself ordinary Christians didn't get to see this kind of library -- most couldn't read for a start, and even those who could, would never have been able to afford to buy even a hundredth part of the material on these CDs. Truly we are without excuse!

And the significance of this collection goes even beyond that. No longer do we have to wait for modern Reformed publishing houses to predict that a particular Reformation or Puritan book will be sufficiently popular to make it economical to reprint, or to deem it "safe" enough to be let loose on the modern evangelical church. Rather, we are now able to see for ourselves the whole range of the Puritan and Reformed publishing enterprise, including views that are usually suppressed by most modern devotees of "Puritan" piety!

Buy these CDs while you can, and find out for yourself what the First and Second Reformations were really all about! You'll be truly amazed, and, by God's grace, will grow from being an ordinary Christian to being an extraordinary one. What they used to say of the Puritan John Flavel's preaching, can be said of these CDs: they are "hissing hot"!

"This side of eternity I'll never be able to repay the favor you have done mankind by bringing these... CDs together.

The first week of reading I grew more as a Christian reading those rich, pure Gospel Commentators than I have in 18 years of Christian life. After reading some of the Puritan CDs I have to get the Reformation set if it kills me. A fire is burning within me. These... CDs are liable to start a revival fire unseen in any generation... the Gospel in its pure form is seen in these... CDs.

Sir, I cant say enough. What a treasure! I'll never be able to repay you this side of heaven, but when we get there I am sure you will see the rich fruits of your labor. God bless you for not being money hungry but wanting to see Christians grow in the Lord... I love you even though we have never met, you have helped me in my Christian walk tremendously with these... CDs.

I am not bragging on the flesh, I am just giving honor where honor is due. The Holy Ghost will take these CDs and light a fire unseen and unheard of. God bless you all at Still Waters."

- Email from the USA


"Thank you so very much for the CDs.

I am amazed at the quality and quantity of the literature...

I cannot imagine any other single thing being done by any man or group of men in the earth today that is of such extensive, present, and enduring value as this CD work is.

God be praised that he uses sickly and weak men to forward his kingdom, that the work may not be mistaken to be wrought by the might of men, but by his Spirit. His strength is perfected in weakness."

Are the Covenanters a Cult?

 

The Exclusive Claim to Being the Most Faithful Church:

An Inescapable Concept

 

by Michael Wagner, PhD

 

The Puritan Reformed Church (PRC) claims that it is the most faithful church currently in existence of which it is aware. This claim is based on the fact that it is the only contemporary church which adheres to all of the doctrinal and practical attainments of the Second Reformation, namely the complete package of the Westminster Standards as adopted by the Church of Scotland (Confession, Catechisms, Directories, Covenants, etc., see http://prce.cjb.net/ ). This claim has sparked sharp criticism, even the false and ungodly allegation that the PRC has become a "cult." In effect, this astounding libel would make the majority of the Westminster Divines, not to mention many other major Reformers, cultists themselves! In the view of the critics, all conservative Reformed and Presbyterian churches are, more or less, faithful churches. Thus for one church to call itself the "most faithful" is a mark of arrogance or pride, which apparently elevates that body to the level of a "cult," a term typically applied to identify and distinguish Christian churches from non-Christian churches.

 

At first glance this view seems quite plausible. There are a number of conservative Reformed and Presbyterian denominations in North America alone, and each one contains sincere and committed Christians. Many also contain ministers who are notable for their public and articulate opposition to various doctrinal errors, and the PRC and the related ministry, Still Waters Revival Books (SWRB), rejoice in the truth of these particular testimonies (SWRB's catalogue, http://www.swrb.com, even contains books and cassettes by men outside the PRC promoting these points). But it is important to note that by maintaining separate ecclesiastical constitutions, organizations, and church courts, these distinct denominations are logically and necessarily testifying to all others that they are the most faithful. It is this inescapable claim to faithfulness that provides a reasonable justification for their separate ecclesiastical existence. If each denomination really considered the others to be equally faithful as itself, then they would all be united together in obedience to Christ's command (John 17:21,22). It is only a need to defend distinctive doctrines or practices that can Scripturally justify a church remaining separate from other churches. By its very existence, a denomination is making a claim to being "the most faithful" of all denominations, defending doctrines and practices that the others are not adequately defending or promoting. If a denomination maintains a separate existence when it could have merely joined together with another denomination of acceptable principles and practices, would that not be a schismatic organization, unscripturally separated from other members of Christ's body?

 

Think about it this way: If someone were to ask you, "Is your church the most faithful Reformed or Presbyterian church that you know of?" and you responded, "no," the obvious next question would be, "Then what are you doing there?!!" Shouldn't it be the goal of every Christian to be a part of the purest and most faithful church he or she knows about (Phil. 3:16)? If not, then Christians will consciously be supporting error and unfaithfulness by their membership in, and financial gifts to, a less faithful church (i.e., a church with sinful teachings and practices). How can that be Scripturally justified? Clearly it can't be. Thus by your membership in a particular church, you are implicitly claiming that your church is the most faithful church. Otherwise you wouldn't be there, you would go to the one you considered to be more faithful -- assuming you were willing to follow the Biblical command to separate from erring brethren (Rom. 16:17).

 

This makes it plain that the Puritan Reformed Church's claim to be the most faithful church at present is no different from what other churches are claiming: all churches are making this claim by their very existence, if not openly and explicitly, then covertly and implicitly. If the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA), for example, considered the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) to be equally or even more faithful than itself, it would join with the PCA. By the same token, if the PCA considered the RPCNA to be equally or more faithful than itself, it would join with the RPCNA. Thus both of these denominations are testifying against each other's unfaithfulness by remaining separate from the other. The RPCNA is therefore claiming to be more faithful than the PCA (and all other denominations it hasn't united with) and the PCA is claiming to be more faithful than the RPCNA (and all other denominations it hasn't united with). Is this arrogance and pride? If so, these denominations should repent and merge together. Separate denominational existences can only be Scripturally justified by the need to defend necessary doctrinal distinctives, and this does not make a church a cult. Each denomination is making an exclusive claim to being the most faithful of all (at least within a particular nation) or else it must consider itself to be unjustly separated from brethren contrary to Christ's command. This exclusive claim is an inescapable concept. Sadly, it seems to have escaped the detractors of the PRC.

 

Like all other churches, the Puritan Reformed Church claims itself to be the most faithful. People who criticize this claim are either being hypocritical or schismatic. Hypocritical, because their church also claims to be most faithful, at least implicitly by its separate existence. Or schismatic, because if their church is not more faithful than the others, then it should repent of its unfaithfulness and unite with the church that is more faithful. Take your pick.

 

Are the Covenanters a cult, because in order to justify their necessary and separate existence they explicitly claim to be most faithful to the real scriptural attainments of the First and Second Reformations? If that is our detractors' current definition of a cult, then the best place for them to stand is in front of a mirror. When members of the other denominations become conscious of the image of their own self-contradiction and self-condemnation, then this false charge against the PRC, like the many others that have preceded it, will be exposed for what it truly is -- vanity and misrepresentation.

Resource 1. ANDERSON, JOHN

Overcoming Division and Unifying the Visible Church (1794)

 

A sermon (of 24 pages) on "Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge" (Prov. 19:27). The author writes,

 

What is aimed at in this discourse is, to strike at a principal root of the numerous divisions now in the visible church. It teaches that we ought not to be in a state of separation from any church-communion, but upon such grounds as are scriptural; and upon such considerations, as involving the declarative glory of God, are of inconceivable and infinite importance. Were this doctrine embraced, there would be no separate church-communions upon trivial pretences; or for the sake of religious tenets or usages in the worship of God which have no foundation in his word; no separate church-communions on account of local customs, uncertain opinions, or uninstituted ceremonies; no separate church-communions founded on the narrow and interested views of a faction. What is here attempted is a seasonable application of the cautions, with which the scriptures abound, against false teachers. To direct church-members to the right use and application of such cautions will be the endeavor of the faithful ministers of Christ; an endeavor which is rendered peculiarly necessary by the corruptions which prevail in the present (divided--RB) state of the visible church. Those who reckon that practical religion is not concerned in the subject of this discourse should consider that true believers have it for their distinguishing character, that they abhor false doctrine, and avoid communion with the teachers of it (John 10:5, Rev. 14:4).

Resource 2. M'CRIE, THOMAS

Two Discourses on the Unity of the Church, Her Divisions, & Their Removal

 

"M'Crie's book is written with a strong pastoral outlook. It is not a lofty tome hurled down from above by ivory-towered theologians or church bureaucrats. 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.

Doctrinal Integrity: The Utility and Importance of Creeds and Confessions & Adherence to Our Doctrinal Standards

 

Miller deals with the necessity of written creeds and subscription to them. He shows that the principle doctrines of Scripture are proclaimed in the Westminster Standards and answers common objections against confessions. Creedalism is inescapable, thus this book is of prime importance for those interested in the purity and peace of the church. We bought out all the remaining stock of this title from the publisher, and we have 11 copies remaining.

The Apostolic/Reformation Way to Worldwide (Biblical) Church Unity (7 sermons, 1998)

 

Seven astounding sermons on God's biblically ordained method to fulfill His command for unity (and the great commission) in the visible church:

 

1. What Are Terms of Communion? (2 cassettes, $7.96)

2. What is Close Communion? (2 cassettes, $7.96)

3. What is Occasion Hearing (or Occasional Communion)? (3 cassettes, $11.94)

 

These truths which have been prominent from Old Testament times to the days of the Apostles -- and in all great subsequent Reformations and true revivals (especially during the second Reformation) -- are clearly, simply and Scripturally presented. These forgotten or ignored doctrines are once again coming to public notice in the preaching of Greg Price (and the publishing of classic Covenanter literature), as well as in the contemporary call for a third Reformation in which the nations of the earth will once again enter into (or renew) covenant with Christ.

 

As Price points out from Scripture, these truths will also be well known in the days of millennial glory to come. "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one (visibly--RB)" (Zech. 14:9). These sermons give us a foretaste of the blessings that God will pour out upon His church when she runs "the way of thy commandments" (Ps. 119:32) and when "the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea" (Isa. 11:9)!

Resource 5. 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)

 

The close communion doctrine of the Reformation continues to be much misunderstood and maligned in our day. 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").

 

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.

 

In short, Alexander and Rufus gives us an excellent defense of biblically regulated close communion, which Anderson shows to be God's ordained method of promoting truth, unity and Reformation.

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.

 

On the topic of church and sacramental communion you are unlikely to find many other books with as much solid information. Recommended for advanced study. Indexed, 518 pages.

Resource 6. DOUGLAS, JAMES

Strictures on Occasional Hearing (1820, second edition)

 

An inquiry into Song 1:7, "Why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?" This book sets out to demonstrates the proposition that one should not hear the public preaching of those he can not take communion with (i.e. it proposes a ban on occasionally hearing those with whom you can not maintain organic fellowship with). The implications contained in this truth are immense; especially when one has adopted the Biblical doctrine of close communion and is set upon upholding the covenanted reformation. The duty to separation and to true visible unity are all encompassed here. A review of this book, written in 1818, notes that the "treatise may be viewed as a complete repository of all that has yet been said on the subject." It is filled with Scriptural, as well as historical testimony, and is a welcome tonic to the weak and compromising books of our day that so often sacrifice the truth on the altar of some other man made expediency (such as unity for political or ecclesiastical advantage). For as the introduction notes, "It is the revealed will of God, and not saintship, which is the only rule of a visible profession." That Christians exist in other denominations is not denied, but that they are faithful to the covenanted reformation (already historically obtained) is. The arguments set forth here are reminiscent of those found in Rutherford's Due Right of Presbyteries. If you are struggling with questions related to separation, the unity of the visible church, close communion, etc. this book may be exactly what you've been looking for. A massive appendix also lays out the historical testimony concerning this matter. 144 pages.

Resource 7. 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 in public worship, 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.

Resource 8. HOUSTON, THOMAS

Unity and Uniformity in the Church (1881)

 

This item lays out the case for unity among churches, proving its assertions from:

 

(1.) Throughout Scripture.

(2.) Our Lord's declaring His will both in precept and prayer.

(3.) From apostolic practise.

(4.) From the covenanted Reformation's "Solemn League and Covenant" which lead to the production of the Westminster standards.

 

Houston notes that in the Apostolic church "the government of the church was one and common wherever churches were planted. It was Presbyterian, and neither Prelatic, a system of monarchial despotism, nor Congregational, a system of popular democracy." This biblical and Presbyterian uniformity was considered the apostolic, visible and doctrinal manifestation of the scriptural injunction to "one Lord, one faith, (and) one baptism." Houston also points out that,

 

the only true and safe way of union is based on the platform of Scriptural uniformity; while that which is framed on allowing diversity in doctrine, and differences in government and worship, is a mere human contrivance, and its effect is to sanction and perpetuate divisions (which is to sanction schism under the false pretence of unity--RB), and to mar the prospect of an ultimate happy union in the church of Christ.

 

Biblical union and uniformity is shown to be based on "agreement in doctrine, worship, discipline, and government." Moreover, the author contends that,

 

this is to be constantly sought after by men united in mind and heart, pledged to God and to one another; it is to be externally manifested, and to be diligently labored for, that it may be generally and universally prevalent. It is never to be viewed as impracticable. This was the main design of the convocation of the Westminster Assembly.

 

The eschatological aspect of visible unity is also noticed, shedding valuable light on such postmillennial strongholds as, "The watchmen on the walls of Zion shall see eye to eye, they shall lift up the voice together, and together shall they sing" (Isa. 52:8) and "The Lord shall be King over all the earth; in that day there shall be one Lord, and His name one" (Zech. 14:9). This book is full of faithful encouragement and is one of the best introductions to this topic we have seen.

Some Reasons for Retaining the Westminster Confession as the Basis of Ecclesiastical Union

 

Explains why the use of the Westminster Confession is one of the best ways in which to obtain godly ecclesiastical union. This booklet pays special attention to the biblical teaching regarding civil government and shows why changes to the original WCF (regarding this matter) has resulted, not surprisingly, in much ecclesiastical disunity. It also contains some interesting notes on the millennial power and glory that will be exhibited in both church and state "in the day of the Lord's power".

The Reformed Confessions, Heresy, Schism and the Faithful Remnant

 

In this sermon Price gives some of the most practical, specific guidelines you may find regarding what churches to attend, or when and why to leave churches which promote heresy and schism (i.e. teachings contrary to the biblical confessions of the churches of the Reformed faith). Popular modern methods of evaluating teachers are also shown to be unbiblical and destructive to the visible church. Calvin, Gillespie and others make frequent "appearances," tying this sermon directly into both the first and second Reformations.

Resource 11. BARROW, GREG

The Covenanted Reformation Defended (1998)

 

Unsurpassed on points related to the Lord's supper, separation and covenanting as set forth by the best Reformers and best Reformed churches. This book (in answer to the neopresbyterianism of Richard Bacon) is particularily strong on matters related to the original intent of the Westminster divines! It includes great citations from Calvin and the Westminster Assembly. Deals with many foundational aspects of the Covenanted Reformation (which gave us the Westminster Standards and the Solemn League and Covenant) from numerous original source documents (from the Westminster Assembly's advice to the English Parliament on the Lord's Supper to the official records of Calvin's Covenanting in Geneva).

 

 

Comprehensive and compelling, this is a shocking (and sometimes advanced) look at what really took place during both the first and second Reformations – with extensive quotations from the writings of the major Reformers (not just quotes from what others have written about them). It conclusively and irrefutably demonstrates that those churches which today call themselves Presbyterian (and even many which claim a more general Reformed heritage) have seriously departed from the Scriptural standards, principles and worship of these previous Spirit-led Reformations.

 

 

The Covenanted Reformation Defended is written in an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand format and is an unsurpassed work that should not be missed by anyone interested in real Reformation in our day. This is without a doubt the best book to read if you want to understand what it means to be a Covenanter and to walk in the blood-stained footsteps of the witnessing church (Christ's Covenanted and Reformed flock) (Song 1:8)! 318 pages, 8.5" X 11".

Demonstrates in an email debate (of 170, 8.5 inch by 11 inch, pages) between Doug Wilson (editor of Credenda/Agenda magazine) and Reg Barrow (president of Still Waters Revival Books) how violations of the regulative principle of worship (i.e. the second commandment) are grounds for excommunication. Also gives specific examples of how modern "Reformed" Christians (e.g. John Frame) and denominations are in violation of the second commandment and are tolerating false and idolatrous worship contrary to their own Confessional standards and vows. Contains many quotations from major Reformation works and confessions in defense of the regulative principle of worship representing the classical Protestant position on worship.

Resource 14. VINKE, PETER

Protestants Separated for Christ's Name's Sake (1675, reprinted 1845)

 

Explains and defends the Reformers reasons for separation from Rome. Exhibits the major points of disagreement, these being the sufficiency of Scripture, the doctrines of grace (salvation), and purity of worship. Elaborates on each major area, explaining the numerous points of division specifically. Provides, for the modern reader, some excellent points to consider concerning which churches to join and which churches to leave. Ultimately comes to the conclusion that,

 

God never did require of us to join with any person or church in their sins; much less that we should sin in order to the obtaining of salvation at his hands. God's rule is, that we should not 'do evil that good may come of it.' (Rom. 3:8) And were the communion with their church never so useful, yet if it cannot be had without sinning, it must not be had at all. If the terms and conditions of communion with them have any thing of sin in them, they had as good tell us that we should fly in the air, or count the sands on the sea-shore; and in case we did not, that then they would not receive us into their communion, or that, being in, they would cast us out. For such things as are morally impossible, (as an assent to any error, or a consent to any false worship, must needs be,) are as unreasonably required of us, as any thing that is naturally impossible could ever be. And if on this account there be a rent from them, the fault is in them that require such things at our hands; as, being contrary to the mind and will of God, cannot be done by us. We, being innocent, nay, commendable in the forbearing of them, (as the innocent person is in the case of a divorce,) must needs be free... (i)t is sometimes necessary to forsake a visible church. Nay more: it may be necessary to believe and act directly contrary to the authority of the present church (if we are to remain faithful to God--RB).

 

In this regard one more representative quotation is provided,

 

One would think that washing of hands, and the wearing of broad phylacteries, were matters so indifferent, as that they could not be displeasing unto God, especially when commanded by the church, and recommended too by tradition; yet our Saviour assures us, (though they thought to please God the better by them,) [that] it made all the rest of the Pharisees' worship but vain and unacceptable. (Matt. 15:9) Worship is indeed the marriage-duty which the church of God is to pay unto none but unto Him who is married unto her; (Jer. 3:14;) and God hath declared himself to be "a jealous God," and that he will not permit any creature to partake that marriage-rite together with him. (Exod. 20:5) Hence it is that idolatry is so often called 'adultery,' and a 'going a-whoring from God.' (Ezek. 23:30) And in this, amongst other things, to be sure they agree, that as amongst men for every fault, though heinous ones too, there cannot be a separation between man and wife, but for adultery there may; so God is pleased not to give a bill of divorce to any church or people for any sin so much as for idolatry. When once they become overspread with that sin, then it is that God says unto them, 'Lo-ammi, Ye are not my people.' (Hosea 1:9).

What to Do When There Is No Faithful Church in Your Area

 

Formerly titled "A Letter of Wholesome Counsel, Addressed to His Brethren in Scotland, 1556." Given the lack of truly Reformed churches in many areas, this letter, full of practical advise, should be a welcome addition to the libraries of those seeking to remain ecclesiastically faithful to the Lord. As God continues to pour out his Spirit (by revealing the doctrines of grace, purity of worship, Presbyterian polity and discipline, Christian education of youth, family worship, the principles of courtship, covenanting [personal, ecclesiastical and national], separation from corrupt and idolatrous communions, male headship, adherence to the WCF and other faithful confessions, etc.), this letter will provide a useful bridge for those separated geographically from faithful fellowship, until new, duly constituted churches can be formed.

Concerning Close Communion

 

A strong little book (of 52 pages) that should be considered by all those seeking the purity and peace of the church. Holds to the old covenanted Presbyterian position. Justifies the maintaining of the separate existence of a denomination that will faithfully testify against sin, and the excluding from the Lord's table those that do not so testify. Gives numerous examples of backsliding in regard to specific truths of Scripture. Proclaims that "the Word of God teaches unequivocally that the Commandments are equally binding." This includes the first commandment as it relates to Christ's Kingship over the nations (and dissent from immoral civil governments which will not recognize and obey Christ as King and law giver); and the second commandment concerning purity of worship (as against "all devising, counselling, using, and any wise approving, any religious worship not instituted by God Himself," such as the use of songs other than the Psalms and the Popish use of musical instruments in public worship). Maintains that violation of these commandments are grounds for barring a person from the Lord's table. Shows how close communion is nothing more than the old Presbyterian view, in keeping with the Westminster Confession of Faith and John Calvin when he stated "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" (John Calvin, Institutes 2.12). Also includes an excellent discussion of essentials and non-essentials, as they relate to the Lord's supper and salvation. The best short book on the Lord's supper that we have seen. Written by an RPCNA minister in large easy-to-read type.

A Choice Collection of Very Valuable Prefaces, Lectures, and Sermons Preached Upon the Mountains and Muirs of Scotland In the Hottest Times of the Late Persecution By that Faithful Minister and Martyr of Jesus Christ the Reverend Mr. James Renwick (1776 ed.)

 

Another very rare item of over 600 pages. Carefully collected and faithfully transcribed from several manuscripts, these pages exhibit some of the reasons why Renwick sealed his testimony with his blood. Houston notes that these sermons were preached "in the Coventicles, in the fields, amidst all dangers and incidents of weather, and by night as well as by day." They set forth the amazing grasp of truth that this young martyr for Christ was granted. "Renwick's sermons," writes Hay Fleming, "show that he was a faithful preacher of the Gospel; and those who had realized in their own experience that it was the power of God unto salvation were anxious at all hazards to listen to the Word when proclaimed by such a devoted and fearless messenger" (Story of the Scottish Covenant in Outline [$US3.99 P; $14.00 HP]). Furthermore, Houston says of these sermons, "They were not prepared with any view to future publication; and the trying circumstances in which their devoted author was placed, wholly prevented any correction or revisal. Yet they contain not only remarkably clear expositions of the word, and a full exhibition of the scheme of salvation, but also many passages which, for searching application to the conscience, and moving eloquence, are unsurpassed in the discourses of eminent preachers either in ancient or modern times" (Life of Renwick, p. 17 [$US4.49 P; $19.00 HP]).

Resource 18. CLARKSON, ANDREW

Plain Reason 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)

 

An exceedingly rare and important book now back in print after 265 years! The Contending Witness magazine (May, 1841) described Plain Reasons "as the single best volume penned defending the principles of the second Reformation." It sets forth "the grounds why Presbyterian Dissenters refused to hold communion with the revolution church and state," (Reformed Presbytery, Act Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation, p. 154n). The biblical principles contained in this book still apply today and thus Plain Reasons remains one of the best books explaining why (and when) an individual (church or citizen) should separate himself (or itself) from those (in church or state) who do not hold fast to all the attainments of our covenanted Reformation forefathers. In this regard the session of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton calls this the one book that best explains why faithful Covenanted Presbyterians must, for conscience sake, remain ecclesiastically separate from all Presbyterian denominations that have backslidden from second Reformation attainments. (This being the classic corporate Calvinistic application of such commands as "Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing" [Phil. 3:16, emphasis added]. It is also the acknowledgement that the Lord has clearly stated in his Word that he "requireth that which is past" [Eccl. 3:15]).

 

Furthermore, the session of the PRC of Edmonton has noted that this book "clearly spells out the reasons why to unite with the Revolution Church (1689) or any of its descendants (The Free Church of Scotland, The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, and American Presbyterian Churches) is to undermine and subvert the work of the Second Reformation. The argumentation is cogent (with an abundant supply of documentation). The reading can be divided up into 5-10 pages at a time. Reasons 8 and 9 (pp. 77-91) which speak to the issue of the covenants are very helpful, as is Reason 14 (pp. 138-140) which covers the matter of terms of communion. We might also highlight Clarkson's treatment of ecclesiastical dissent (pp. 172-221 wherein he discusses schism) and political dissent (pp. 221-280). This is the best apologetic we have read defending the necessity of Presbyterians to faithfully maintain the attainments of the Second Reformation" (emphasis added). Moreover, Clarkson's section on schism, separation and the nature of the visible church (constitutionally considered) contains over 10 pages of notes and quotes taken from numerous Reformers including: Beza, Rutherford, Gillespie, Dickson, Durham, M'Ward (Rutherford's disciple), Marshall, Watson, Cotton, Owen, Burroughs, Fraser, and Case -- demonstrating that his ideas regarding dissent from corrupt and backsliding civil or ecclesiastical governments are not new, but merely classic Reformation doctrine. The book also answers a multitude of pertinent and realistic objections in sections conveniently located directly after each reason for dissent.

 

In short, Clarkson's Plain Reasons, contains the highest quality of Reformation thought regarding the subjects of which it deals. It is undoubtedly a major Reformation classic and should be studied by all those who are serious about seeing the destruction of the present tyranny (which is expressed in the modern civil and ecclesiastical Babylon erected by those that oppose the covenanted Reformation and the implementation of the Crown rights of King Jesus over the whole Earth!). 300 pages.

Resource 20. KERR, JAMES (editor)

The Covenants and the Covenanters: Covenants, Sermons, and Documents of the Covenanted Reformation

 

This book (of 442 pages with illustrations) spells out in no uncertain terms what lay at the heart of the second Reformation. Moreover, these covenants (landmarks of the Lord) stand as beacons to all nations of their continuing moral duty to bind themselves to Christ (first commandment) or suffer His avenging wrath (Ps. 2).

 

The prefatory note to this magnificent volume well describes its value:

 

The Covenants, Sermons, and Papers in this volume carry the readers back to some of the brightest periods in Scottish history. They mark important events in that great struggle by which these three kingdoms (England, Scotland and Ireland--RB) were emancipated from the despotisms of Pope, Prince, and Prelate, and an inheritance of liberty secured for these Islands of the Sea. The whole achievements of the heroes of the battlefields are comprehended under that phrase of Reformers and Martyrs, 'The Covenanted Work of Reformation.' The attainments of those stirring times were bound together by the Covenants, as by rings of gold. The Sermons here were the product of the ripe thought of the main actors in the various scenes--men of piety, learning, and renown. Hence, the nature, objects , and benefits of personal and national Covenanting are exhibited in a manner fitted to attract to that ordinance the minds and hearts of men. The readers can well believe the statements of Livingstone, who was present at several ceremonies of covenant-renovation: 'I never saw such motions from the Spirit of God. I have seen more than a thousand persons all at once lifting up their hands, and the tears falling down from their eyes.' In the presence of the defences of the Covenants as deeds, by these preachers, the baseless aspersions of novelists and theologians fade out into oblivion. True Christians must, as they ponder these productions, be convinced that the Covenanters were men of intense faith and seraphic fervour, and their own hearts will burn as they catch the heavenly flame. Members of the Church of Christ will be stirred to nobler efforts for the Kingdom of their Lord as they meditate on the heroism of those who were the 'chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof;' and they will behold with wonder that 'to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time (the present great apostasy--RB), from the face of the serpent.' And Statesman will discover how princes, parliaments, and peoples united in the hearty surrender of themselves to the Prince of the kings and kingdoms of the earth; and will be aroused to promote that policy of Christian Statesmanship which, illustrating the purpose and will of God, the Father, shall liberate Parliaments and nations from the bonds of false religions, and assert for them those liberties and honours which spring from the enthronement of the Son of man, and King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

This volume of documents of olden times is sent out on a mission of Revival of Religion, personal and national, in the present times. It would do a noble work if it helped to humble classes and masses, and led them to return as one man to that God in covenant from Whom all have gone so far away. A national movement, in penitence and faith, for the repeal of the Acts Recissory and the recognition of the National Covenants would be as life from the dead throughout the British Empire. The people and rulers of these dominions shall yet behold the brilliancy of the Redeemer's crowns; and shall, by universal consent, exalt Him who rules in imperial majesty over the entire universe of God. For, 'The seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ." Here we have some of the most moving sermons ever addressed to a people and their nations, given before the most solemn of occasions -- national covenant renewal! Alexander Henderson, Andrew Cant, Joseph Caryl, Edmond Calamy and a host of other Puritan Covenanters (even the turncoat Independent Philip Nye) are included here in easy to read modern (1895) type. Anyone interested in seeing the royal prerogatives of King Jesus once again trumpeted throughout the nations, on a national and international scale, needs this book -- for these men "were setting up landmarks by which the city of God will be known at the dawn of the millennial day" (Thomas Sproull cited in the Reformed Presbytery's Short Vindication, p. 38).

Classical Protestant Doctrine of the Church by Greg Barrow (as read by Larry Birger for Barrow's The Covenanted Reformation Defended)

This tape, read by Larry Birger, is chapter 2 in Greg Barrow's The Covenanted Reformation Defended (free in etext at: http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/misrep2.htm ). It covers some of the most important (and often forgotten, in our day) aspects of the Reformation doctrine of the church. Numerous citations are included, from many Reformation leaders and the confessional statements of the best Reformed churches. Without the distinctions made here you are likely to misunderstand not only the Reformation view of the church, but also related questions (like why the Reformers accepted Roman Catholic baptism [it was the Anabaptists that rejected the baptism of Rome, because of errors related to these very questions]). Furthermore, as Barrow points out, the Reformed distinction regarding the "being" and the "well being" of the church is absolutely indispensable. Without an understanding of this crucial Scriptural distinction concerning the church you will not be able to fully understand the best Reformers on any issues about or related to the church.
