Puritan Fast Sermons (34 volumes, 1640-1653)

This 34 volume set is found on Calvinism Bookshelf CDs volumes 17-21 (3 for 1 CD SUPER SALE) at: http://www.swrb.com/Puritan/calvinism-bookshelf-CDs.htm

This is a collection of sermons preached to England's Parliament during the glory days of the Puritan preaching on days of public humiliation… These sermons richly combine prayer and thanksgiving on England's behalf. They encourage and admonish Parliament to govern in the fear of God. The volumes include sermons of preachers who were frequently invited to Parliament, including William Ames, Samuel Bolton, William Bridge, Thomas Brooks, Anthony Burgess, Jeremiah Burroughs, Joseph Caryl, Thomas Goodwin, William Greenhill, Christopher Love, Thomas Manton, Stephen Marshall, Philip Nye, John Owen, Obadiah Sedgwick, and Ralph Venning (and many others - RB).

- Dr. Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson, Meet the Puritans: With a Guide To Modern Reprints, pp. 632-633.

This remarkable set of rare Puritan sermons is made up of facsimile copies of sermons preached before the "Long Parliament" in England during the second Reformation -- on appointed fast days between 1640 and 1653.

Many famous Puritans, as well as Scottish Covenanters and Westminster Divines, were called upon to deliver these important messages to the civil rulers (and nations, when these sermons were later distributed in print format) of that day.

A free online MP3 (audio) sample of one of these sermons, by George Gillespie (one of the Scottish commissioners attending the Westminster Assembly) is available at http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=103006312. This sermon is titled "Reformation's Refining Fire; or, Iconoclastic Zeal Necessary to World Reformation."

The quote below should also help you to appreciate the spirit of these days of Reformation, while also illustrating the zeal and dedication that the Lord gave both the preaches and those who heard them,

"Another important thing to note about the Westminster Divines (and indeed of many Christians living in those days) is that they were men of prayer. During the time when the Assembly was meeting, Parliament held regular Fast Days on the last Wednesday of every month. Here's an example of how Puritan Fast Days were conducted:

"It was upon these occasions his (John Howe's) common way to begin about nine in the morning with prayer for about a quarter of an hour in which he begged a blessing on the work of the day: and afterward read and expounded a chapter or psalm in which he spent three-quarters of an hour. Then he prayed for about an hour, preached for another hour and prayed for about half an hour. After this he retired and took some little refreshment for about a quarter of an hour more (the people singing all the while) and then came again into the pulpit and prayed for another hour and gave them another sermon of about an hour's length, and so concluded the service of the day at about four of the clock in the evening with about half an hour or more in prayer.

The seven hours of such a service included about three and a quarter hours of prayer and two and three quarter hours of preaching. The Parliamentary Fast Days likewise tended to have even more prayer than preaching, sometimes with two one-hour sermons and two prayers of two hours length each! (emphases added)"

Hugh Trevor-Roper in The Crisis of the Seventeenth Century, Chapter 6, "The Fast Sermons of the Long Parliament," gives us some useful context to these fast sermons in the selected quotes below (emphases added throughout).

"It was an observation of that time," wrote Clarendon of the Puritan Revolution, "that the first publishing of extraordinary news was from the pulpit; and by the preacher's text, and his manner of discourse upon it, the auditors might judge, and commonly foresaw, what was like to be next done in the Parliament or Council of State."

General fasts, with appropriate sermons, were, of course, nothing new in 1640. Great occasions had always called them forth. There had been a general fast on the approach of the Armada in 1588, a weekly fast in 1603 until the plague was over, and another general fast for the great plague of 1625. More recently, fasts had also been held at the beginning of Parliament.

The first episode in this history comes at the very beginning of the Parliament. When Parliament met, its very first act was to propose a general fast. . . . All business was to be suspended. There were to be sermons morning and afternoon. . . . At the same time the House of Commons, following earlier precedents, also appointed a day on which all its members should take the sacrament and listen to further sermons.

Thus from the start the stage was set. . . . Pym 's message: from his earliest days in Parliament he had advocated a "covenant" among the enemies of popery and tyranny. Now both Burges and Marshall sang to the same tune. In the universal peril, said Marshall, all hope lay in a covenant such as had been made to defend religion in the days of Queen Elizabeth. It was not enough, added Burges, "to pull down and cut off some of the Nimrods" who had invaded English laws and liberties: "there must be a thorough joining of themselves to God by covenant."

Thus the regular series of "monthly fasts" began. They would continue for seven years. The routine was soon established. When one ceremony was over, the next would be prepared. The two Houses would separately choose and invite their preachers. The invitation of the Lords was impersonal, that of the Commons conveyed by named members -neighbours, friends, kinsmen: presumably their original sponsors. Sometimes, of course, there were refusals and substitutes had to be found. When the fast-day came, official parliamentary business was omitted or cut down to a minimum. The Lords normally gathered in King Henry VII's chapel of Westminster Abbey, the Commons in St. Margaret's, Westminster. The two preachers delivered the sermons, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. The ceremonies were open to all: unless expressly excluded by a parliamentary order, the public was free to attend and (according to the fashion of the time) to take notes of the sermons. Next day, or within a few days, votes of thanks would be passed and conveyed to the preachers, generally with a request to print their sermons, by named members, generally their original sponsors. Then the process was repeated. Similar ceremonies took place all over the country. Nor was it only on the last Wednesday of the month that Parliament subjected itself and the people to this heavy dose of religion. Special crises called forth special fasts also: fasts to celebrate the opening of the  Westminster Assembly, to desire blessings on the parliamentary armies when in difficulty, to persuade God to remove "a great judgment of rain and waters" or "abundance of rain and unseasonable weather," and to abate such  calamities as the miseries of Scotland during the triumphs of Montrose, the incidence of the plague, divers crying sins and enormities of the Church, the spread of heresies and blasphemies, etc. There were also, when occasion called for them, special days of thanksgiving. All these entailed special sermons, whose preachers were chosen, thanked and invited to print in the same way.

There was also, in London, a good supply of preachers. From the start, as "scandalous" ministers were ejected, country preachers, encouraged by their local Members of Parliament, poured in to compete for their places, and from 1643 the Westminster Assembly provided a constant reservoir of clerical talent . . .

. . . The preacher was John Arrowsmith, who had been proposed by Pym 's step-brother, Francis Rous. His text was Leviticus xxvi.25, "I shall bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant," and his message was that bloody civil wars were peculiar signs of God's blessing on a country, and that England, having now been singled out for this favour, must fight it out, exacting "like for like and, particularly, blood for blood (Rev.xvi.5 -6)." After listing the sins which called most loudly for blood, and which included especially the neglect of God's covenant and disrespect for its messengers, the clergy, he gave his specific instructions. He reminded his hearers that the English victory over the Scots at Musselburgh, a century before, had been won at the hour when Parliament, in London, ordered the burning of "idolatrous images." Thus if Pym held out his right hand to treat with the king, with his left he pointed the way to a more radical war and a new campaign of iconoclasm. Five days later he emphasized his threat by pushing through Parliament an ordinance abolishing episcopacy and including the ratification of the ordinance in the terms of the treaty.

Ellis was chiefly concerned to expose the dangers of "a false peace" - that is, one which did not guarantee the future by "putting Christ into the treaty." He urged his hearers to remember the message of his predecessor Mr. Arrowsmith and make no peace till the false brethren and enemies of Christ had been trodden down . . .

On 24 April Sir Robert Harley asked for a committee to destroy superstitious monuments in London churches and himself at once set about the work. Two days later it was among headless statues and shivered stained-glass windows that the Commons gathered in St. Margaret's to hear the monthly fast sermons. The first, appropriately enough, was by a protege of Harley himself, a country clergyman from Cheshire who served up the now familiar texts "Curse ye Meroz" and "Cursed be he that keepeth his sword back from blood." The second was by William Greenhill, another of Bishop Wren's victims, famous for his commentary on Ezekiel. His sermon once again was a pointer to immediate policy. He chose the ominous text, "The axe is laid to the root of the tree."

Like Samuel Fairclough two years before, Greenhill demanded "justice on delinquents." Indeed he referred back explicitly to the execution of Strafford. "When your justice fell upon that great cedar-tree above a year and a half ago," he cried, "did not all England tremble?" And now too much time had passed without a second stroke. Though great "delinquents" still lived, the executioner's axe had culpably been allowed to rust. That was most improper. However, he added, regretfully, "if justice be at a stand and cannot take hold of living delinquents to keep the axe from rust, let justice be executed upon lifeless delinquents. Are there no altars, no high places, no crucifixes, no crosses in the open street that are bowed unto and idolized? Lay your axe to the roots and hew them down!"

The message was clear, and was instantly obeyed. Two days after the sermon, the terms of Harley's committee were extended to include the destruction of idolatrous monuments in streets and open places. On 2 May Cheapside Cross, that bugbear of the Puritans, the pride and glory of the City, was at last ceremonially hewn down.

. . . 1644 began as the year of the Scots. In December 1643 the Scotch commissioners and Scotch ministers returned to London . . . In 1641 they had been sent empty away, but this time they meant business. . . . If they were to come as deliverers, they must receive the price; and the price had long ago been stated: in order to guarantee the revolution in Scotland, England too must adopt a full Presbyterian system, on "the Scots model." . . . They obtained seats in the Assembly; they organized a party, gave orders, reported home. And they secured invitations to preach not merely, as in 1640 -41, to the gaping populace of London, but to the Parliament itself. This was an opportunity not to be missed.

The Scotch ministers preached to the Commons on the four successive fast-days after their arrival. The series was opened by Alexander Henderson, the framer of the National Covenant of Scotland. He delivered, according to his colleague Robert Baillie, "a most gracious, wise and learned sermon" urging the English legislature to repair its past errors and now, though late, build the house of the Lord in England. The other three ministers, Samuel Rutherford, Baillie himself and George Gillespie, pressed the same message. England, said Gillespie, had been culpably slow in following the good examples of Scotland. The whole nation was guilty of scandalous laxity in the past, still unredeemed. Why had not the idolatrous high places been taken away? The trouble was, England was intolerably Erastian: it put its trust in the laity, not the clergy: "it did even make an idol of this Parliament and trusted to its own strength and armies." No wonder God had been greatly provoked and had visited the guilty country with defeat, until it had drawn the correct deductions and appealed to Scotland. From now on, given due obedience, all would be well: "Christ hath put Antichrist from his outer works in Scotland and he is now come to put him from his inner works in England." Baillie, in printing his sermon, rubbed it in even deeper. He was astonished, he told Francis Rous, the chairman of Parliament's committees on religion in England, that "the wheels of the Lord's chariot should move with so slow a pace." This "wearisome procrastination to erect the discipline of God" was inexplicable "to mine and every common understanding." It caused millions to live in every kind of carnal sin "without the control of any spiritual correction."

On one occasion, indeed, Baillie could report "two of the most Scottish and free sermons that ever I heard anywhere." This was in the autumn of 1644, on the special fast-day for the armies of the Lord General, Essex, then in straits in the west: the two preachers then "laid well about them and charged public and parliamentary sins strictly on the backs of the guilty." And frequently the London clergy . . . let fly at the error of toleration, at antinomian doctrines or at preaching tradesmen.

These were the sermons to the Commons. But sentence must be passed by the Lords, and the Lords were still sticklers for legality. What preacher, in these circumstances, would the Lords choose? In fact, they found a way of evading the problem. For the fast-day of 30 October they did not choose their own preachers but, only five days before the ceremony, invited the Westminster Assembly to appoint them. The Assembly, of course, was glad to do so; the Scots, naturally, were delighted… and the Lords heard a predictable sermon. The Rev.Edmund Staunton admitted that he had had "short warning"; but he did not have to look far for his matter. The City petition for the blood of delinquents, he said, had suggested his subject. So he sang the praises of Phinehas, who did not wait for legal authority before spearing Zimri and the Midianite woman, and of the eunuchs who threw down Jezebel so that "her blood was sprinkled on the wall"; he lamented the wickedness of Saul who omitted to hew Agag in pieces; "and now," he ended, "could I lift up my voice as a trumpet, had I the shrill cry of an angel which might be heard from east to west, from north to south, in all the corners of the kingdom, my note should be Execution of Justice, Execution of Justice, Execution of Justice! That is God's way to pacify wrath: Then stood up Phinehas and executed judgment, and so the plague was stayed."

The Scots did indeed find one opportunity of fighting back, at least from the pulpit. This came in the summer of 1645. By that time their own position had become very delicate. On the one hand they had, as they felt, triumphed in the Westminster Assembly and, through it, were demanding the instant, overdue establishment in England of a Calvinist theocracy, complete with . . . General Assembly, ruling elders, and full powers of excommunication. On the other hand, even as they pressed their claims abroad, their position at home was in jeopardy. While Cromwell was winning victory after victory in England, in Scotland Montrose was master of almost the whole country. It was therefore significant that at this moment the Commons appointed as fast-preacher a man who, in the Westminster Assembly, was already known as an Erastian friend of Selden, an enemy of Scotch claims. This was Thomas Coleman, formerly a rector in Lincolnshire, now -- as once before -- sponsored by the two members for his county, Sir John Wray and Sir Edward Ayscough. In his sermon Coleman urged that the lay legislature of England "establish as few things jure divino as can well be," allow no rules to have divine sanction without clear scriptural warrant, and "lay no more burden of government upon the shoulders of ministers than Christ hath plainly laid upon them." The clergy, he said, should be content to be secured in learning and supplied with maintenance: Church government they should leave entirely to Parliament, for "a Christian magistrate, as a Christian magistrate, is a governor in the Church." In this manner the English Parliament, triumphant at Naseby, gave its answer to the Scotch General Assembly, reeling under the victories of Montrose.

Coleman was not an Independent. He explicitly opposed Independency. He was a "Presbyterian" - but an English "Presbyterian," and the Scotch Presbyterians were aghast at his doctrines. They had already been very busy in the Assembly: a "blasphemous book" had taken up much of their time "before we got it burnt by the hand of the hangman." Now they found themselves faced by Coleman. To be silent under such an attack was impossible; but where could they counter-attack? The House of Commons was no good: the majority there were "either half or whole Erastians." But by good luck [providence - ed.] another opportunity presented itself. The House of Lords, commiserating with the military disasters of the Scots, had invited the four dominies (ministers -- ed.) to preach at four successive fasts and the last of these occasions was still to come. It was to be on 27 August, and the preacher was to be the youngest, most learned, most argumentative of the four, George Gillespie.

Gillespie seized his opportunity. . . . he turned on Coleman. Coleman, he said, had been neither active nor passive on the side of reformation "but will needs appear on the stage against it." His views struck at the root of all Church government, were contrary to the Word of God, the Solemn League and Covenant, the opinions of other Reformed Churches, and the votes of Parliament and Assembly. They had given no small scandal and offence . . . The controversy thus roused rumbled on, with increasing acrimony, for six months. Sides were taken; pamphlets proliferated. But whatever the . . .  clergy of London thought, inside the Parliament the views of Coleman prevailed.

But in the afternoon a different, discordant voice was heard. Thomas Watson, pastor of St. Stephens, Walbrook, was a "Presbyterian" who had been proposed by the "Presbyterian" London merchant John Rolle. But the revolution which had occurred since he had been nominated, and which had probably excluded his sponsor from the House, did not deter him. To a congregation of furious or frightened men, hurrying or hurried blindly forward, he preached one of the boldest sermons that was ever uttered to the Long Parliament. It was a sermon against hypocrisy, and the preacher sketched, in apposite detail, the character of the hypocrite. The hypocrite, he said, is "zealous in lesser things and remiss in greater  . . . zealous against a ceremony, a relic or painted glass  . . . but in the meantime lives in known sin, lying, defaming, extortion, etc." He is zealous against popery, but makes no conscience of sacrilege, starving out the ministry, "robbing God of his tithes." Then he drew nearer and struck deeper. The hypocrite, he declared, "makes religion a mask to cover his sin." So "Jezebel, that she may colour over her murder, proclaims a fast." Already the congregation of parliamentary saints must have begun to tremble for what would come next. And well they might, for it came hot and strong, even personal. "Many," said the preacher (and there could be no doubt of whom he was thinking), "make religion a cloak for their ambition. Come see my zeal, saith Jehu, for the Lord. No Jehu, thy zeal was for the kingdom. Jehu made religion hold the stirrup till he got into the saddle and possessed the Crown. This is a most exasperating sin."

Predictably, the Rump did not thank Watson, or invite him to print his sermon. Even the Levellers, who would soon echo his sentiments about Cromwell's "hypocrisy," rejected such an ally. "This Presbyterian proud flesh," they said, "must down with monarchy, one being equal in tyranny with the other." But Watson ignored the implied veto. He published his sermon himself. He had no difficulty in finding a printer. The sermon came out under the same imprimatur as the Serious and Faithful Representation, the protest of the London clergy against the trial of the king and against the charge that they, by their opposition, had ever intended the destruction of the monarchy (Watson's sermon was published as God's Anatomy upon Man's Heart).

Immediately after the fast-day, Cromwell made up his mind, and on 28 December the obedient Rump passed the ordinance for the king's trial. Two days later it chose its preachers for the next fast, which was due to fall on 30 January 1649. This time there was to be no chance of error. The two preachers were proposed by two safely radical members, Gilbert Millington and Francis Allen, both of whom would sign the king's death warrant. They were John Cardell and John Owen.

Furthermore, regarding John Owen, in The Correspondence of John Owen (1616-1683) edited by Peter Toon (James Clarke & Co., 1970), we find this comment,

The first occasion that Owen preached at a monthly fast was Wednesday, 29 April 1646.  His name was suggested on 25 March by Sir Peter Wentworth and Thomas Westrow; the vote of thanks after the sermon was proposed by Robert Jenner and Sir Peter Wentworth.1  The sermon was preached in St Margaret's Church, Westminster, but, in good Puritan style, the Journal of the House of Commons simply speaks of "Margaret's Church."  It was published as A Vision of Unchangeable Free Mercy in sending the means of Grace to undeserving sinners.  His fellow preacher was James Nalton whose sermon was published under the title Delay of Reformation provoking God's further indignation.  Owen sought to show that whatever happens on earth, especially in events and matters connected with the propagation of the Gospel, is controlled by the will and counsel of God.  The sermon was from Acts of the Apostles 16:9, "A vision appeared to Paul in the night; there stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, 'Come over into Macedonia and help us.'" From the words "come over and help us" he deduced that the people who are in the greatest need are those who do not have the richness of the Gospel message proclaimed unto them; and, he pointed out, there were many people in England who had no preacher of the Gospel in their parish.  The sermon closes with an eloquent appeal for the Gospel to be taken to the parts of the nation ravaged by war and destitute of a godly ministry.

Here is another interesting quote related to these Puritan fast sermons:

In the early 1640s, as power passed from Charles I (who largely supported the existing rituals and festivals) to the Long Parliament, parliament began the process of clamping down on the celebration of Christmas, pressing that "Christ-tide" (as they preferred it called, thus doing away with the "mass" element and its Catholic echoes) should be kept, if at all, merely as a day of fasting and seeking the Lord. In January 1642, shortly before civil war began, Charles I had agreed to parliament's request to order that the last Wednesday in each month should be kept as a fast day; many hoped that Christ-tide, 25 December, would come to be seen and kept as just an addition to these regular fast days. The Long Parliament, in fact, met and worked as usual on 25 December 1643. In late 1644 it was noted that 25 December would fall on the last Wednesday of the month, the day of the regular monthly fast, and parliament stressed that 25 December was strictly to be kept as a time of fasting and humiliation, for remembering the sins of those who in the past had turned the day into a feast, sinfully and wrongfully "giving liberty to carnal and sensual delights." Both Houses of Parliament attended intense fast sermons on 25 December 1644 (http://www.olivercromwell.org/faqs4.htm).

Tentmaker Publishers are working on releasing this Puritan Sermons set in printed format. For details please see http://tentmaker.org.uk/?p=41. Here are some of their comments,

"This remarkable set of rare Puritan sermons comprises facsimile copies of sermons preached before parliament on appointed fast days between 1640 and 1653 . . . . It was our plan to reprint the facsimile edition, but possibly in 24 evenly sized volumes (to economise on production costs). We have already scanned in all the original pages but there is much work still to be done. We have now decided to reprint them in a new typeset edition with modern spelling. In addition, we plan to issue two volumes of sample sermons from the set.

The sermons are especially valuable, being as they are the work of the leading Puritan preachers of the day and addressed to those with the responsibility of government. We are hoping in the reprint to include some indication of the events occurring at the time that will give the context to the sermons and also a brief biographical sketch of each preacher.

We are cautious in giving a date when they will be available but we are aiming for late this year or early next. The offer price on the 24 volume set will be about £400 . . . .  The set will be produced with sewn sections and bound in Buckram cloth with d/w. If you wish to reserve a set then please email Fast Sermons (at FastSermons@tentmaker.org.uk) with your details. This will help us to assess possible interest but there will be no commitment until final pricing has been calculated at which time we will notify you (emphases added)."

Puritan Sermons 1659-1689

(6 volumes, reprinted 1844)

"Volume five is the best compilation of Puritan systematic theology ever written. This six volume set represents Puritan preaching at its best" (Dr. Joel Beeke, Meet the Puritans, p. 638).

This six volume set of books is also available on Calvinism Bookshelf CD volume 1 (3 for 1 CD SUPER SALE) at: http://www.swrb.com/Puritan/calvinism-bookshelf-CDs.htm

These are "The Morning Exercises at Cripplegate, St. Giles in the Fields, and in Southwark by 75 Ministers of the Gospel in or Near London with Notes and Translations by James Nichol."

Large crowds of people often gathered for these expositions… Volume five… is the best compilation of Puritan systematic theology ever written, but unfortunately is often overlooked in Puritan studies…. This six volume set represents Puritan preaching at its best Puritan pastors treasured the full scope of God's counsel…. (They) stove for… excellence. They also made their sermons practical enough to answer the questions of listeners in a thoroughly scriptural manner.

- Dr. Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson, Meet the Puritans: With a Guide To Modern Reprints, pp. 637-639.

Volumes vary in length from 624 to 804 pages and cover a great number of topics that are essential to the Puritan view of God, the world and the Christian life.

The Preface notes, "This celebrated collection of useful and orthodox theology consists of practical as well as doctrinal discourses, preached by some of the most eminent divines of the 17th century, and published at irregular intervals between the years 1660 and 1691."

Volume six, "The Morning Exercises against Popery; or the principal Errors of the Church of Rome detected and confuted has always been deemed a standard book on that great controversy," which even in that day was "recently revived. Two of the volumes here described were published prior to the year 1662; consequently all the authors of the sermons in those volumes were Conformists up to that time; and though the majority of them afterwards became for consciences' sake, Nonconformists, yet this circumstance, instead of detracting from their moral and intellectual worth, has served, through intervening years, to enhance their character, in public estimation, as divines of great talents, erudition, and purity."

In short, a sound, useful and judicious collection of Puritan divinity. Includes sermons by John Owen, Thomas Watson, Thomas Manton, Matthew Poole, Richard Baxter, William Greenhill, James Janeway, Edmund Calamy, Thomas Vincent and many other able ministers of the Gospel.

Volume six contains a phenomenal set of indices (covering all six volumes) which run 179 pages in length.

PALMER, B.M.

The Family in its Offices of Instruction and Worship (1876)
The author notes that "[f]rom the earliest period in the history of the Church, the duty of family instruction has been emphasized as the most important of all agencies in perpetuating the knowledge of Divine truth" (emphasis added). Furthermore, he writes, "each pious household is a separate fibre of those roots by which the Church of the living God takes hold upon the earth, and preserves its existence in a sinful world." It is especially important that fathers study material like this, for if they will not lead their families in instruction and daily family worship, they have, for all intents and purposes, denied the faith. For when 1 Tim. 5:8 states, "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel," it should be taken to heart. Even if this verse refers specifically to the material aspects of life, how much more important are the spiritual duties? This book should be a great encouragement to those entrusted with these most important spiritual duties and privileges!

PANNE, JEAN-LOUIS (AND FIVE OTHER EX-COMMUNISTS OR "FELLOW TRAVELERS")

The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression (fourth printing, 2001)

 

In a review of this book, Peter Hammond of Frontline Fellowship (a missionary organization ministering to Christians oppressed under Communist and Islamic regimes, http://www.swrb.com/catalog/h.htm ) writes,

 

The Black Book of Communism is a monumental work that is heralding the ultimate defeat and disgrace of Communism worldwide. It was a best seller when first published in France, selling nearly 200 000 copies. That is a very large print run for a hard back book almost 900 pages long! It led the Communist Party in France to hold crisis sessions considering whether it could continue to hold to Marxism in any shape or form. The consensus was that they would have to abolish the Communist Party!

 

Since being translated into English and published by Harvard University Press, The Black Book has also provoked a sensation in Great Britain and the United States. The Black Book is a scholarly, detailed account of the crimes of Communism starting with the Russian Revolution and continuing through Eastern Europe, Red China, North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Angola and Afghanistan.

 

The Black Book's exhaustive indictment of Communism is all the more compelling because all 6 of its authors were once communists or "fellow travellers" with communism (full review at: http://www.frontline.org.za/black_book.htm ).

 

Tony Judt (New York Times), in his review of this 878 page book, also comments,

 

An 800-page compendium of the crimes of Communist regimes worldwide, recorded and analysed in ghastly detail by a team of scholars. The facts and figures, some of them well known, others newly confirmed in hitherto inaccessible archives, are irrefutable. The myth of the well-intentioned founders -- the good czar Lenin betrayed by his evil heirs -- has been laid to rest for good. No one will any longer be able to claim ignorance or uncertainty about the criminal nature of Communism, and those who had begun to forget will be forced to remember anew.

PARKER, GARY

Creation: Facts of Life (Newly Revised and Updated)

This UPDATED classic is filled with many of the latest findings in science. An excellent and concise introductory text for students and families! In his easy-to-read style, Dr. Gary Parker looks at evidence for creation in DNA, embryonic development, homology and more! Darwin's assumptions and fossil evidence are also addressed. This is a classic expanded into a powerful and layman-friendly format.

Dr. Gary Parker, a former non-Christian and evolutionist, joined the staff of Answers in Genesis in 1996 as senior lecturer. For 12 years he served on the science faculty of the Institute for Creation Science in San Diego, California. He has published ten textbooks, lectured worldwide on creation, and appeared in numerous films and on television.

"I can hardly forget reading this book for the first time. I was 12 years old, and I had believed firmly in the bible my entire life. I remember watching discovery channel and they would say something like, "The salamander evolved 30 million years ago as a result of the pressures of competing lizards", or something to that effect. I remember thinking, "Yeah right, they expect me to believe this nonsense? They didn't offer any proof!" However, I thought that I was maybe one of the few people who rejected evolution. I thought that all "grown-ups" believed in evolution, except for my daddy of course. But I held firm to my beliefs.

One day, my dad said, "Here Kyle, read this book. It's pretty interesting." I remember looking at the title "Creation: Facts of Life". I sat there wondering, could this possibly be a book about evidence that we were created?

As one would expect, I was totally unaware of the large amount of creationist literature out there. I read through the book in amazement. Not only did this book reaffirm what I believed, it even gave evidence from things like genetics and the fossil record. I was shocked to learn that Parker was actually a former athiest/evolutionist.

Anyways, this book has always been a bit special to me. This book turned me into a YEC (Young Earth Creationist), and I am very happy that Parker was able to change my life in such a positive way."

PEDEN, ALEXANDER

The Fellowship of Christ's Sufferings
Peden was a persecuted Covenanter minister and field preacher. The intrigues and hatred of his enemies forces him at times to conceal his face from the onlooking crowds while preaching, so that he could not easily be recognized by informants and those seeking to take his life. The mask he used for this purpose is preserved in Scotland to this day. This sermon sets forth the tenderness of Christ to His suffering soldiers. It is filled with encouragement to the faithful, to persevere under intense suffering and persecution -- even unto a martyr's death if necessary (and many Covenanters sealed their testimony with their blood during these days). In mirroring the goodness and severity of God, this sermon also warns against occasional hearing (i.e. the hearing of backsliding preachers who oppose the Covenants and the Covenanted Reformation). Peden calls the clergy (referring alternately to the Prelates and the indulged Presbyterian ministers) of Scotland in his day "vile apostates," "cursed time-servers" and "bastards who have left their bleeding and wounded mother in her distress." He further notes that God will blast away all these unfaithful covenant-breakers. He closes this exhortation with a call to keep all of the attainments of the Covenanted Reformation and, if need be, to seal these truths with your blood. This sermon is read by ruling elder Lyndon Dohms from the book Sermons Delivered in Times of Persecution in Scotland, by Sufferers for the Royal Prerogatives of Jesus Christ

PERKINS, WILLIAM

A Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians (1617)

"Perkins was justly esteemed by his contemporaries as a master in theology. This commentary is deeply theological, and reads like a body of divinity," writes Spurgeon (Commenting on Commentaries). Darling, in his Cyclopaedia Bibliographica (p. 2337) writes, "A learned and pious Calvinistic divine. He excelled in a distinct judgment; a rare dexterity in clearing the obscure subtleties of the schools, and in an easy explication of perplexed subjects. As a preacher, he was greatly admired. Several of his works have been translated in Latin, French, Dutch, and Spanish." Perkins covers the first five chapters of Galatians in this work, while Cudworth completes the final chapter. 613 pages.

PERKINS, WILLIAM

The Foundation of Christian Religion Gathered Into Fixed Principles (1608)

 

Interestingly, just below the title on the front cover of this 756 page book we find the words: "And it is to be learned of ignorant people, that they may be fit to hear sermons with profit, and to receive the Lord's Supper with comfort." "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," writes McKim (Encyclopaedia of the Reformed Faith, p. 274).

 

This hefty tome contains the following works by Perkins:

 

"A Golden Chain: Or, The Description of Theology, Containing the order of the causes of Salvation and Damnation . . . Hereunto is adjoined the order which M. Theodore Beza used in comforting afflicted consciences;" "An Exposition of the Symbol or Creed of the Apostles;" "An Exposition of the Lord's Prayer, In the Way of Catechizing Serving for Ignorant People;" "A Treatise Tending Unto a Declaration Whether a Man Be in the Estate of Damnation, or in the Estate of Grace: And if He Be in the First, How He May in Time Come Out of it: If in the Second, How He May Discern It, and Persevere in the Same to the End;" "A Case of Conscience, the Greatest that Ever Was: How a Man May Know Whether He Be the Child of God, or No (Whereunto is added a brief discourse taken out of H. Zanchius);" "A Direction for the Government of the Tongue According to God's Word;" "Two Treatises: 1. On the Nature and Practice of Repentance; 2. Of the Combat of the Flesh and the Spirit;" "A Treatise How To Live Well, In All Estates and Times, Specially When Helps and Comforts Fail;" "The Treatise of Dying Well;" "A Discourse of Conscience Wherein is Set Down the Nature, Properties, and Differences Thereof: as Also the Way to Get and Keep a Good Conscience;" "A Reformed Catholic: Or, A Declaration Showing How Near We May Come to the Present Church of Rome in Sundry Points of Religion; and Wherein We Must For Ever Depart From Them -- With an Advertisement to all Favourers of the Roman Religion, Showing How the Said Religion is Against the Catholic Principles and Grounds of the Catechism;" "A Declaration of the True Manner of Knowing Christ Crucified;" "A Grain of Mustard Seed: Or, The Least Measure of Grace that is or Can Be Effectual to Salvation;" "The True Gain, More in Worth then All the Goods of the World;" "A Warning Against Idolatry of the Last Times and an Instruction Touching Religious Divine Worship;" "A Treatise of God's Free Grace and Man's Free Will;" A Treatise of the Vocations , Or Callings of Men, With the Sorts and Kinds of Them, and the Right Use Thereof."

 

"Several of Perkins' works have been translated into Latin, French, Dutch, and Spanish" (Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica: A Library Manual of Theological and General Literature, 2337).

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).

PIERCE, JAMES

A Vindication of the Dissenters (1718, second edition, corrected)

 

Written "In Answer to Dr. William Nichols's Defence of the Doctrine and Discipline of the Church of England," this work was first written in Latin and then translated into English. It is a massive (605 pages) and detailed history and doctrinal defense of the Dissenters and "An Appeal to Foreign Divines, Professors, and all other Learned Men of the Reformed Religion."

 

Part one covers the history and controversies surrounding nonconformity, drawing from sources ancient to the author's day (in 288 pages).

Part two is titled "Concerning the Doctrine of the Church of England." It deals with separation, backsliding into Popish ways, civil resistance, the power of the magistrate and numerous other topics of importance to Reformed Christians.

Part three, "Concerning Discipline, and Modes of Worship," systematically exposes numerous specific errors of the Prelates (in worship and government), while defending the testimony of the Dissenters. Chapters in this section include, "Of the Government of Bishops," "Of Singing and Music in Churches," "Of the Public Liturgy," "Of the Sign of the Cross in Baptism," "Of Godfathers and Godmothers," "Of Confirmation," "Of the Surplice, and other Ecclesiastical Habits," "Of the Ring in Marriage," "Of Kneeling at the Sacraments," "Of the Observation of Holidays," "Of Bowing in the Name of Jesus," "Of Reading Apocryphal books in the Church," Of the Faults found with the English Liturgy," and much more.

This last section is particularly revealing, as it exposes how far many, in our day, that claim to be Reformed (like Steve Schlissel), have actually backslidden into the rejected ways of Popery and Prelacy -- casting off some of the greatest attainments of the Reformation (notably the second Reformation) in the process. This is especially evident in the modern "Reformed" rejection of the regulative principle of worship and the subsequent (ignorant) embracing of many worship practises which our worthy Reformed forefathers rightly abominated (as idolatry), confessed outside the church, and sometimes even gave their lives fighting against. This book might be called a miniature encyclopaedia of dissent. It should not be overlooked by those interested in the great Puritan revolution which Pierce here defends -- a revolution which is once again being revived (by the power of Almighty God) in our day and is destined to one day cover the whole earth!

Pierson was friends with William Perkins "who held him in a very dear esteem." Upon Perkins' passing Pierson "was appointed by his (Perkins--RB) executors to publish certain of his hitherto unpublished writings, and to collect his 'Workes' into the well-known three folios (Memoir)."

PINK, ARTHUR W.

The Arthur Pink Collection on one CD

Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) was born in Great Britain and immigrated to the U.S. to study at Moody Bible Institute. He pastored churches in Colorado, California, Kentucky, and South Carolina before becoming an itinerant Bible teacher in 1919. He returned to his native land in 1934, taking up residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, in 1940, and remained there until his death.

Most of his works first appeared as articles in Studies in Scriptures, a monthly magazine concerned solely with the exposition of Scripture.

Pink was virtually unknown and certainly unappreciated in his day. Independent Bible study convinced him that much of modern evangelism was defective. When Puritan and reformed books were generally disregarded by the Church was a whole, he advanced the majority of their principles with untiring zeal. The progressive spiritual decline of his own nation (Britain) was to him the inevitable consequence of the prevalence of a "gospel" that could neither wound (with conviction of sin) nor heal (via regeneration).

Familiar with the whole range of revelation, Mr. Pink was rarely sidetracked from the great themes of Scripture: grace, justification, and sanctification. Our generation owes him a great debt for the enduring light he has shed, by God's grace, on the Truth of the Holy Bible.

ARTHUR W. PINK

The Sovereignty of God

This is the best contemporary book explaining the foundations of Calvinism and God's sovereignty (as revealed in Scripture). It is like a key that, by God's grace, opens the door of understanding to some of the most blessed truths in Scripture. From the myriad of testimonies that we have heard concerning how God has used this book, we think that we can safely say that this is also the best book to pass on to those that you want to introduce to Calvinism. We have included prices below for both the unedited, indexed, Baker Book House edition and the edited Banner of Truth edition. Though the Banner edition has been edited, it does contain some very helpful editorial footnotes that the Baker edition does not contain.

POLLARD, JEFF

Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of America

"In the Church today, there are few cows quite as sacred as the right of modern Christians to dress however they please. But in this groundbreaking work, Jeff Pollard challenges us to embrace God's standard and to understand the historical roots of the rise of nudity and immodesty in modern culture. His perspective is thoughtful and balanced. Most importantly, he accomplishes what few authors on this subject have achieved: a treatise that avoids both license and legalism. A courageous booklet." (Publisher)

Greg Nyman writes,

Jeff Pollard has, indeed, taken on the "sacred cow" of our culture - the swimsuit, essentially, but more importantly, he has shown by the sources he quotes from outside the Christian church, that the agenda of the fashion industry has been to progressively "undress" the American public. He moves on to show what the Bible teaches concerning modesty, and how the Christian believer has been duped and deceived into believing that this is "normal behavior," when in fact it hasn't been.

This is a powerful tool in the hands of anyone who wants to shed light on this subject . . . This is . . . an appeal to examine ourselves in light of biblical teaching as to how our behaviors are impacting our culture, and how we are called to be "separate" and not be conformed to our world and its falleness.

Towards the end of this book, Jeff Pollard reveals what the connection between the undressing of America and the current states of affairs are in pornography, and how easy it has become to see how the swimsuit and pornography have led to the complete undressing of our culture and what the "uncovering of our nakedness" has produced and what it means from a biblical point of view. Ultimately, it has been rotten fruit, and we need to capture again the essence of modesty in dress if we are to avoid the judgment of God.

Compelling reading, and sobering.

Al Martin (Pastor, Trinity Baptist Church) comments,

The author of these pages seeks to bring to the light of scripture and responsible factual research the practice of acceptable public nakedness as it relates to the bathing suit industry. Mr. Pollard is conscious that some will write off his concerns as an infringement on their Christian liberty, while others will judge him to be cowardly in not making more detailed and sweeping judgments. May God give to each reader that wonderful disposition attributed to the Bereans who 'received the Word with all readiness of mind, examining the scriptures daily, whether these things were so' (Acts 17:11).'

Whether you agree or not with all the conclusions of this book regarding specifics related to modest clothing, there is much Scriptural information that calls for the prayerful consideration of all Christians living in a godless, fashion, sex and image crazed society. There is much here to contemplate in regard to what God requires of us concerning internal and external modesty, purity and holiness.

The Lord Jesus Christ said,

"But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell." (Matt. 5:28-30).

"We are here taught, that there is such a thing as heart-adultery, adulterous thoughts and dispositions, which never proceed to the act of adultery or fornication; and perhaps the defilement which these give to the soul, that is here so clearly asserted, was not only included in the seventh commandment, but was signified and intended in many of those ceremonial pollutions under the law, for which they were to wash their clothes, and bathe their flesh in water. Whosoever looketh on a woman (not only another man's wife, as some would have it, but any woman), to lust after her, has committed adultery with her in his heart, v. 28. This command forbids not only the acts of fornication and adultery, but, (1.) All appetites to them, all lusting after the forbidden object; this is the beginning of the sin, lust conceiving (James i. 15); it is a bad step towards the sin; and where the lust is dwelt upon and approved, and the wanton desire is rolled under the tongue as a sweet morsel, it is the commission of sin, as far as the heart can do it; there wants nothing but convenient opportunity for the sin itself. Adultera mens est˜The mind is debauched. Ovid. Lust is conscience baffled or biassed: biassed, if it say nothing against the sin; baffled, if it prevail not in what is says. (2.) All approaches toward them; feeding the eye with the sight of the forbidden fruit; not only looking for that end, that I may lust; but looking till I do lust, or looking to gratify the lust, where further satisfaction cannot be obtained. The eye is both the inlet and outlet of a great deal of wickedness of this kind, witness Joseph's mistress (Gen. xxxix. 7), Samson (Judg. xvi. 1), David, 2 Sam. xi. 2. We read the eyes full of adultery, that cannot cease from sin, 2 Pet. ii. 14. What need have we, therefore, with holy Job, to make a covenant with our eyes, to make this bargain with them that they should have the pleasure of beholding the light of the sun and the works of God, provided they would never fasten or dwell upon any thing that might occasion impure imaginations or desires; and under this penalty, that if they did, they must smart for it in penitential tears! Job xxxi. 1. What have we the covering of the eyes for, but to restrain corrupt glances, and to keep out of their defiling impressions? This forbids also the using of any other of our senses to stir up lust. If ensnaring looks are forbidden fruit, much more unclean discourses, and wanton dalliances, the fuel and bellows of this hellish fire. These precepts are hedges about the law of heart-purity, v. 8. And if looking be lust, they who dress and deck, and expose themselves, with design to be looked at and lusted after (like Jezebel, that painted her face and tired her head, and looked out at the window) are no less guilty. Men sin, but devils tempt to sin."

- Matthew Henry

"Whoever shall look upon a woman. The design of Christ was to condemn generally the lust of the flesh. He says, that not only those who have seduced their neighbors' wives, but those who have polluted their eyes by an immodest look, are adulterers before God. This is a synecdoche (It is a way of speaking which is called Synecdoche, when a part is taken for the whole - ed.): for not only the eyes, but even the concealed flames of the heart, render men guilty of adultery. Accordingly, Paul makes chastity (1 Corinthians 7:34) to consist both in body and in mind. But Christ reckoned it enough to refute the gross mistake which was prevalent: for they thought that it was only necessary to guard against outward adultery. As it is generally by the wantonness of the eyes that temptations are presented to the mind, and as lust enters, as it were, by that door, Christ used this mode of speaking, when he wished to condemn lust: which is evident from the expression, to lust after her. This teaches us also, that not only those who form a deliberate purpose of fornication, but those who admit any polluted thoughts, are reckoned adulterers before God. The hypocrisy of the Papists, therefore, is too gross and stupid, when they affirm that lust is not a sin, until it gain the full consent of the heart. But we need not wonder, that they make sin to be so small a matter: for those who ascribe righteousness to the merit of works must be very dull and stupid in judging of their sins."

- John Calvin

"A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God" (Deuteronomy 22:5).

"The distinction of sexes by the apparel is to be kept up, for the preservation of our own and our neighbour's chastity. Nature itself teaches that a difference be made between them in their hair (1Corinthians 11:14), and by the same rule in their clothes, which therefore ought not to be confounded, either in ordinary wear or occasionally. To befriend a lawful escape or concealment it may be done, but whether for sport or in the acting of plays is justly questionable. Some think it refers to the idolatrous custom of the Gentiles: in the worship of Venus, women appeared in armour, and men in women's clothes; this, as other such superstitious usages, is here said to be an abomination to the Lord."

- Matthew Henry

"This decree also commends modesty in general, and in it God anticipates the danger, lest women should harden themselves into forgetfulness of modesty, or men should degenerate into effeminacy unworthy of their nature. Garments are not in themselves of so much importance; but as it is disgraceful for men to become effeminate, and also for women to affect manliness in their dress and gestures, propriety and modesty are prescribed, not only for decency's sake, but lest one kind of liberty should at length lead to something worse. The words of the heathen poet are very true: 'What shame can she, who wears a helmet, show, her sex deserting?' Wherefore, decency in the fashion of the clothes is an excellent preservative of modesty."

- John Calvin

POND, ENOCH

The Seals Opened; Or, The Apocalypse Explained (1871)

 

After noting that he found the Jesuit (i.e. Preterist--RB) method of eschatalogical interpretation unsatisfactory, Pond tells us how he came to settle on the historic Protestant method of interpretation (i.e. historicism).

 

Furthermore, he states that,

 

avoiding the theories of Rationalists and Roman Catholics on the one hand, and of the Adventists (Premillennialists--RB) on the other, the plan of interpretation which we have pursued is the same which has been held by the great body of evangelical ministers and Christians in America and in England for the last hundred years.

 

Pond aims to open Revelation to all Christians, but also deals with some controversial points in chapters which deal with the dating of Revelation and a review of Moses Stuart's Preterism. 248 pages.

POPE (Urban VIII)
The Pope's Conclave; or, A Speech Made By His Holiness, Upon the Disastrous Disappointment Which the Roman Cause Hath Received By the Late Proceedings, and the Great Covenant of Scotland (1640)

Biblical covenanting has always been a crowning ordinance of real Reformation and a major harbinger of the downfall of the Devil's dominion over the sons of men. This book clearly demonstrates the man of sin's seething hatred, from his own mouth, for this ordinance of God. The Pope here calls the National Covenant of Scotland,

an accursed Covenant, the king of all Monsters in Religion (which is able to make all other Monsters be unadmired, and draw all number to this only) out of whose womb, like the Trojan horse, are like to come a Furious Crew of undaunted Heretics to brash the wall of Rome.

Here the Papal Antichrist focuses specifically on the great damage done to Rome by the National Covenant of Scotland (sworn in 1638). 54 pages, though some are a little hard to read.

POSTMAN, NEIL

Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business
A scathing secular rebuke to the mindlessness of many of the pursuits that consume most of our generation. Postman convincingly demonstrates the superiority of a literate, word oriented culture over an immature, image based society, such as ours. Citing positive examples from the days of the Reformation, early America (and a plethora of other sources), over and against the modern media and its amusements (a-musements or "no-thinkings"), Postman shows that "television has conditioned us to tolerate visually entertaining material measured out in spoonfuls of time, to the detriment of rational public discourse and reasoned public affairs." Furthermore he "offers compelling suggestions as to how to withstand the media onslaught," stating that "before we hand over politics, education, religion, and journalism to the show-business demands of the television age, we must recognize the ways in which the media shape our lives and the ways we can, in turn, shape them to serve our highest goals." Tellingly, Postman even reminds us of our own heritage, when he notes that between 1640-1700 in America it was understood that "the Bible was the central reading matter in all households," for as he says, "these people were Protestants who shared Luther's belief that printing was "God's highest and extremist act of Grace, whereby the business of the Gospel is driven forward." Moreover, he even writes, "[o]f course, the business of the Gospel may be driven forward in books other than the Bible, as for example in the famous Bay Psalm Book, printed in 1640 and generally regarded as America's first best seller" (p. 32).

I John 4:7 (#18) Worldwide Calvinistic Unity and Loving One Another (1997)

An amazing sermon which exposes all unity which is not based on truth (e.g. in groups like Promise Keepers) as necessarily based on lies -- and as treason against King Jesus! Defends the Reformation view of visible and covenanted unity and uniformity from Scripture, and from pertinent quotes from Calvin (during first Reformation), Henderson (the second Reformation architect of the Solemn League and Covenant), and others. Exhibits how Reformed teaching has always viewed the real schismatics (whether in the majority or minority) as those who press "independent denominationalism" and as those who tolerate a sinful multiformity -- against the national establishment of the one true Reformed religion. Calvin and the Geneva Presbytery of his day even counseled excommunication and exile for those that would not swear to their "covenanted uniformity" in upholding the Geneva Confession of 1536 (cf. Calvin, Covenanting and Close Communion by Reg Barrow, free at: http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/CalvinCC.htm ). Moreover, Price shows how our scandalous modern multiformists (which includes the leaders of most so-called "conservative Presbyterian" denominations today) teach and act in direct opposition to Christ's high priestly prayer in John 17, as well as the high standard of visible unity that will one day be attained worldwide (as seen in the prophetic words found in Zechariah 14:9: "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one"). Furthermore, the portion of this sermon dealing with loving the brethren is one of the most convicting practical sections of a contemporary sermon that we have ever heard. Such preaching is extremely humbling, calculated to exalt Christ and His truth, and to drive sinful human beings to the throne of grace -- seeking everlasting mercy and forgiveness in the only place that it can truly be found. In short, Price calls us back to our first love (individually) and to the biblical attainments of our covenanted forefathers (corporately). It is unlikely that you will find modern preaching much better than this.

I John 5:10-13 (#24) Assurance: How To Be Certain of Your Salvation (1998)

This is the best sermon we have ever heard on the doctrine of assurance. It contrasts Papist blasphemy and Arminian heresy on this point (from some of their official documents) with the biblical position of the Reformation (citing the classic landmark statements on assurance from the Westminster Confession of Faith). It lays out the clear Scriptural provisions that God has made for every Christian to enjoy the full assurance of faith, and thus enjoy close communion with Christ throughout their earthly sojourn. Besides being a great encouragement to believers, this tape can also be used as a helpful evangelistic tool. Finally, if you, or anyone you know, has ever struggled with assurance (and there are few Christians that haven't) then this is a sermon that you should not pass by.

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!

Reformation Politics Versus the Beast

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).

The Solemn League and Covenant

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.

Includes a lengthy list of questions for interviewing prospective suitors and an appendix on the Biblical role of women. A very practical, unique item, laying the foundation for blessed biblical marriages. Companion item: Courtship Versus Dating by Greg Price ($US59.93-80%=$US11.99 (US funds)/2 hours on 1 video or $US7.96 on two cassettes).

PRICE, GREG

Covenant Theology and Its Implications (1998)

An easy-to-understand introduction to the basics of covenant theology. Explains what covenant theology is, while adducing a number of practical and theological implications which must follow when this view of Scripture is adopted. Shows how covenant theology is (and was) foundational to all true Reformation. Refutes Dispensationalism. Includes overviews (with Scripture proofs) of the covenant of Redemption, the covenant of Works and the covenant of Grace. In short, Price proclaims the classic Reformed position on covenants (and the implications of covenant theology) as it has been declared in the best Reformed Confessions (e.g. The Westminster Confession of Faith) and in books like The Marrow of Modern Divinity (by Fisher and Boston), The Covenant of Life Opened (by Samuel Rutherford), The Ark of the Covenant Opened and The Ark of the Testament Opened by Patrick Gillespie and The Life of Justification Opened (by John Brown of Wamphray). This is the best single tape sermon on covenant theology that we have knowledge of.

PRICE, GREG

Christmass Condemned By Christ (1998)

Price shows how the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ condemns all man-invented holy days. Scripture and history are brought to bear most specifically on the celebration of Christ-mass, demonstrating why it is a sin to celebrate this day. It is also noted that Scripture never commands the celebration of this day and that there is no evidence that Christ and the Apostles ever celebrated this day -- in fact, this snycretism of paganism and "Babylonian" Christianity was not first celebrated until 354 A.D. (when December 25 was chosen, in accord with the Pagan feast of Saturnalia, as the day of "celebration"). Price also clearly shows that to call yourself Reformed while you hold on to this Roman Catholic/Pagan monument of idolatry makes for a serious contradiction in your testimony -- as the best Reformed churches have always disciplined those (in accord with Scriptural teaching) who broke the second and fourth commandments by keeping antichristian festival days like Christ-mass, Easter, etc.. Citations from Luther, Calvin and the company of Geneva Pastors, the Church of Scotland's First Book of Discipline, the 1620 Dutch Synod, the Civil Government of Holland (1625), the British Colonies in the U.S. and the Westminster Assembly all speak with one voice against this Romish corruption. Common objections against the classic Reformed position are also answered. "Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen" (Jer. 10:2).

PRICE, GREG (RUTHERFORD, GILLESPIE, BROWN of WAMPHRAY, et al.)

The Duty and Perpetual Obligation of Social Covenanting

 

"The material found in this bound photocopy addresses a forgotten and neglected ordinance of God: social covenanting. God's people in times of repentance and thanksgiving, trial and blessing have been a covenanting people. In the most pure times of ecclesiastical and civil reformation throughout history, both church and state under the mediatorial rule of Christ have by the grace of God bound themselves together by covenant to promote and defend the true Christian religion. The first document adopted by the Westminster Assembly was in fact, the Solemn League and Covenant (1644). It united the kingdoms of Scotland, England, and Ireland in a covenanted reformation of both church and state in order to preserve, promote and defend the true Christian religion (as summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger and Shorter Catechisms, Directory For Public Worship, and Form of Church Government), and in order to expose and uproot all false teaching contrary to the Scripture and these standards. Furthermore, it was not only the desire of the Westminster Assembly to unite in covenant the three British kingdoms, but rather to include in this covenanted reformation all of the Reformed Churches throughout Europe. Consider the goal of the Assembly as summarized by Hetherington:

 

"There was one great, and even sublime idea, brought somewhat indefinitely before the Westminster Assembly, which has not yet been realized, the idea of a Protestant union throughout Christendom, not merely for the purpose of counterbalancing Popery, but in order to purify, strengthen, and unite all true Christian churches, so that with combined energy and zeal they might go forth, in glad compliance with the Redeemer's commands, teaching all nations, and preaching the everlasting gospel to every creature under heaven. This truly magnificent, and also truly Christian idea, seems to have originated in the mind of that distinguished man, Alexander Henderson. It was suggested by him to the Scottish commissioners, and by them partially brought before the English Parliament, requesting them to direct the Assembly to write letters to the Protestant Churches in France, Holland, Switzerland, and other Reformed Churches. . . . and along with these letters were sent copies of the Solemn League and Covenant, a document which might itself form the basis of such a Protestant union. The deep thinking divines of the Netherlands apprehended the idea, and in their answer, not only expressed their approbation of the Covenant, but also desired to join in it with the British kingdoms. Nor did they content themselves with the mere expression of approval and willingness to join. A letter was soon afterwards sent to the Assembly from the Hague, written by Duraeus (the celebrated John Dury), offering to come to the Assembly, and containing a copy of a vow which he had prepared and tendered to the distinguished Oxenstiern, chancellor of Sweden, wherein he bound himself 'to prosecute a reconciliation between Protestants in point of religion'. . . . [O]n one occasion Henderson procured a passport to go to Holland, most probably for the purpose of prosecuting this grand idea. But the intrigues of politicians, the delays caused by the conduct of the Independents, and the narrow-minded Erastianism of the English Parliament, all conspired to prevent the Assembly from entering farther into that truly glorious Christian enterprise. Days of trouble and darkness came; persecution wore out the great men of that remarkable period; pure and vital Christianity was stricken to the earth and trampled under foot. . ." (William Hetherington, History of the Westminster Assembly of Divines, [Edmonton, Alberta: Still Waters Revival Books], pp. 337-339).

 

The material presented herein is commended to the reader with the sincere prayer and confidence that God will again restore the Church of Jesus Christ to a glorious covenanted reformation -- one that will even surpass that one to which she had attained at the time of the Westminster Assembly. However, when the Lord brings that future covenanted reformation it will not be limited to only three kingdoms of the earth, but by the grace and power of Christ our King, it will be a covenanted reformation that will encompass all of the nations of the earth (Ps. 2:6-12; Is. 2:1-4; Mt. 28:1-20) and will bring to the church a visible unity and uniformity that (unlike pleas for unity today) is firmly grounded upon the truth" (Greg Price, Preface).

 

The material contained in this compilation was gathered together by the session of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton. Its 210 pages contain the following items, as listed in this bibliography for social covenanting.

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 or only $3.98 until September 13, 2010)

2. What is Close Communion? (2 cassettes, $7.96 or only $3.98 until September 13, 2010)

3. What is Occasion Hearing (or Occasional Communion)? (3 cassettes, $11.94 or only $5.94 until September 13, 2010)

 

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.

 

Moreover, 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)!

PRICE, GREG

Foundation for Reformation: The Regulative Principle of Worship (1995)

 

"The central focus of Reformed Protestantism was its interpretation of worship," writes Eire in War Against the Idols (p. 3, $US39.95). Acknowledging this fact in the idea that the regulative principle is just the application of sola Scriptura and the sovereignty of God to worship, Price convincingly argues for a return to Scriptural purity in worship. He maintains the regulative principle of worship, in all its beauty and splendor, as that which came from the hand of God, and as an indispensable component of true Christian piety.

 

Furthermore, it should be noted, that "it is also important to realize that the regulative principle also provides the basis for the positive work of reformation. That is, it not only requires the exclusion of man-made worship; but it points us to the divine pattern of true worship" (Kevin Reed, John Knox: The Forgotten Reformer, [PHP CD, $98.98).

 

A antidote against Arminianism in worship. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. (1 John 5:21).

PRICE, GREG

An Open Letter to Those in the Indentity Movement (1995)
If Identity is accurate is understanding the New Covenant to be made with only the bloodline seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, then one would expect Romans 9-11 (which explains God's plan for "Israelites" and "Gentiles") to especially confirm this proposition. However, Identity's interpretive principle only brings confusion and disorder to these chapters, as this short paper seeks to demonstrate.

Micah 4:1-5 (#9 & #10) Reformation Eschatology, the Millennium and the Victory of Christ's Kingdom (2 sermons, 1998)

 

The eschatology of the Reformers (and the Reformation Creeds and Confessions) defended and explained: exhibiting the prominent place that the victory of Christ's kingdom (in history) is given in Scripture -- and in the writings of the best Reformers (from Calvin and Cameron, to Witsius [Dutch] and the Westminster Divines [British]). Also demonstrates how the millennium (which Price notes may begin within a generation or two) will include such notable events as the nations bowing to Christ's Kingship civilly, worldwide unity (based on truth, Amos 3:3) in the church, and universal peace in the world. This is hard to dispute just in light of the text from which these sermons are preached:

 

But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever (Micah 4:1-5).

Micah 4:6-8 (#11 & #12) Israel Turns To Christ (2 sermons, 1998)

 

In 1635 Samuel Rutherford wrote,

 

O to see the sight, next to Christ's Coming in the clouds, the most joyful! Our elder brethren the Jews and Christ fall upon one another; they will be kind to one another when they meet. O day! O longed for and lovely day-dawn! O sweet Jesus, let me see that sight which will be as life from the dead, thee and thy ancient people in mutual embraces (from The Letters of Samuel Rutherford as cited in Iain Murray's, The Puritan Hope: Revival and the Interpretation of Prophecy [Banner of Truth, 1984, p. 98]).

 

Price here sets forth the classic Reformation position on the restoration of the Jews, a "system of prophetic interpretation that historically furnished the Biblical basis for the most glorious future imaginable for the Jews!" (Reg Barrow, "Publisher's Preface" in Hal Lindsey and the Restoration of the Jews, 200 page softcover, $9.95).

Nation Shaking Reformation Promoted

A classic sermon by a modern-day Puritan! Deals with the major facets of national Reformation from the Old and New Testaments, as well as providing historic examples of how and why God blesses this biblical pattern. Explains the duties of the church, state and individual in bringing about national covenanted Reformation. Includes notes on the importance of covenanting with God (individually and corporately) and on the forthcoming covenant renewal (of the Solemn League and Covenant) in Edmonton. Exposes tolerationism and religious pluralism as sin, gives instruction on the "two sons of oil" in Zechariah's prophecy, and provides direction (from the Lord's prayer as expounded by the Westminster Divines in the Larger Catechism) on the kind of prayer that changes the world, destroys the work of the devil, and honors and glorifies God. Reformation eschatology also gets its due here. This sermon should be a great encouragement to those that have been given the grace to see the bigger picture regarding what God is doing in the world today -- and the certain world-changing Reformation that is to come during the prophesied millennium!

Terms of Communion:

The Westminster Standards

 

This series explains and defends the second term of communion in Covenanted Reformed Presbyterian churches, which is,

 

That the whole doctrine of the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Catechisms, Larger and Shorter, are agreeable unto, and founded upon the Scriptures.

 

Price not only explains why we need creeds and confession (answering the question: Isn't the Scripture sufficient?), but he shows how everyone has a creed and how such statements of faith are actually inescapable -- for as soon as one says what he believes the Bible means, he has (by definition) put forth his creed ("credo" in Latin means "to believe"). There is no neutrality possible here. Creedalism is an inescapably biblical concept -- or else you could not even preach (with the hope that anyone would believe your preaching), which the Bible commands!

 

Price also gives a summary of the Westminster standards and the history of this august assembly, demonstrating why these standards are agreeable to the word of God. After showing how faithful creeds and confessions (i.e. human testimony) have brought untold blessings to the church he gives a history of the Westminster Assembly (setting the context for the study of the Standards themselves). The doctrines contained in the confessional standards are then summarized.

 

Price also exposes and rebukes much false teaching and false practice (contrary to the standards) using the specific names associated with each heresy refuted. Here is a list of some of the doctrines covered in this extensive and fascinating set:

 

1. Sola Scriptura (refuting popery, neo-orthodoxy, liberalism and the charismatics).

2. The doctrine of God (refuting Unitarianism, Oneness theology [Modalism, Sabellianism], and tritheism).

3. God's decrees and predestination (refuting Arminianism, fatalism [Islam]).

4. Creation (refuting Evolutionism, Pantheism and New Age and Eastern mysticism).

5 The covenant of works.

6. Providence (against "luck" and "accidents").

7. The fall of man (refuting Arminianism and Pelagianism).

8. The covenant of grace (refuting dispensationalism).

9. Christ our mediator (refuting Arianism [JW's], Apollinarianism, Nestorianism, Eutychianism [which led to the transubstantiation and consubstantiation heresies].

10. The free offer of the gospel.

11. Effectual calling (contra Arminianism)

12. Justification by faith alone through Christ alone (contra Rome and the Arminians).

13. Sanctification and good works (condemning antinomianism and legalism).

14. Assurance of faith.

15. Perseverance of the saints

16. The law of God.

17. Christian liberty (against pretended liberty of conscience and the imposition of legalistic standards outside of the law of God)

18. Worship (against the anti-regulativists and promoters of will-worship)

19. The regulative principle (condemning Arminianism in worship).

20. The Sabbath (taking the high Scottish view)

21. Lawful oaths and vows (condemning covenant breaking [churches and nations included], perjury, etc.).

22. The civil magistrate (against pluralism, false toleration, Erastianism, and for biblical establishments).

23. Marriage.

24. The church (contra popery, prelacy and independency [all of which are forms of sectarianism]).

25. The resurrection and general judgement.

PRICE, GREG

A Peaceable Plea for Worldwide Protestant Unity (2000)
Though born in the midst of controversy and written as a result of a slanderous public attack on the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton and Still Waters Revival Books (in which false charges of schism were laid), this is a prime example of the godly and pastoral responses that are becoming well known internationally from the pen (and preaching) of Pastor Greg Price (cf. Prov. 15:1). Price gently (and faithfully) demonstrates that not only are the PRC and SWRB not guilty of schism (given the Reformed definition of this term, cf. "The Reformed View of Schism" by Andrew Clarkson, free at:
http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/Schism.htm [which is excerpted from the book Plain Reasons for Presbyterians Dissenting . . .]), but that both the PRC and SWRB represent a small remnant that continue to faithfully proclaim the classic Reformation message concerning the biblical duty to promote worldwide Protestant unity. This book also examines the fact that modern Protestantism is already greatly divided, while bringing to light the forgotten fact that a biblical plan has already been laid out and partially implemented (uniting three nations and national churches under King Jesus) by our Protestant forefathers. Furthermore, the message of the PRC and SWRB is shown to be the same message preached and practiced by these notable Reformed leaders (churches and nations) of the second Reformation -- as anyone familiar with the publishing program of SWRB and preaching of Greg Price will easily be able to attest. Sadly, it is also shown that those who cry loudest (against the PRC and SWRB) of schism are actually themselves pursuing the schismatic course (sometimes adopting Roman Catholic heresies and at other times relying on Independent views of church government to support their positions -- though claiming to deny both). This is an extremely instructive introduction to Reformed thought on the unity that Scripture requires (Rom. 15:6, 2 Cor. 13:11, Phil. 1:27, Phil. 2:2, 1 Pet. 3:8 , etc.), biblically examining the duties of churches, nations, families and individuals. We pray the arguments offered here will be carefully considered by all professing Christians and that our Lord may be pleased to use this book as a spark that will light the fire of reformation and revival leading to the day when "the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one" (Zech. 14:9).

A Testimony Against the Unfounded Charges of Anabaptism (1997)
This book teaches us that "(t)he heresy of Anabaptism lives today! It has infected the modern church with its cancerous errors and heresies: anti-creedalism, arminianism, dispensationalism, independency (sectarianism), anti-paedobaptism, will-worship (anti-regulativism), perfectionism, societal escapism, religious pluralism and tolerationism (anti-establishmentarianism), denial of the perpetual obligation of social covenanting, pacifism, pietism, socialism, premillennialism, and a refusal to recognize *lawful* civil government as the ordinance of God. These unbiblical positions of the Anabaptists were not tolerated by the Reformed Churches of the First and Second Reformations, and neither should they be tolerated by any Church today that claims to be Reformed or Presbyterian" (Greg Price). Far too little contemporary Reformed writing has been directed against the Anabaptists, especially in light of the fact that many of their heresies have been generally adopted by professing Christians. Even the "Reformed" community suffers from this contagion, and this book is, in part, an answer to the confusion at Credenda Agenda
magazine (Doug Wilson in particular). Lord willing, this book will be an effective antidote to the "AIDS" of Anabaptist thought and practice.

When Does the Sabbath Begin? Morning or Evening?
Acknowledging the "binding obligation upon all people everywhere to keep the Sabbath day holy unto the Lord," this paper argues from Scripture that the "new day begins at morning." Furthermore, it shows at what time in the morning the day begins. An important question that effects church unity and discipline.

COMPLETE LISTING OF GREG PRICE CASSETTE SERMONS, less new arrivals (http://www.swrb.com/music/cassets.htm) Ten samples, with summaries (from among the hundreds of Greg Price cassettes available) follow:

PRICE, GREG

Christian Love is Intolerant ($3.98) Explains how the church shows its love for Christ by its hatred and refutation of all sin, error and backsliding. Toleration of sin is one of the great sins of our day. It is widely practiced in the church, state and family. Based on Rev. 2:12-17, this sermon by Price rebukes theological pluralism, "unity above truth," the church growth movement, and much more!

PRICE, GREG

God's Absolute Sovereignty ($3.98) 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 fullness 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

Covenanted Motherhood ($3.98) Motherhood exalted to the lofty and noble position that it occupies in Scripture. Great encouragement is to be found here for those "mothers in Israel" who bow reverently before the Word of the Lord, and labor with all their might to be obedient to this high calling.

PRICE, GREG

God's Love ($3.98) 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

God's Purpose in Suffering ($3.98) Demonstrates how suffering brings glory to God and sanctifies the individual. Also examines how the civil and ecclesiastical beasts persecute (unto death if need be) the "women in the wilderness" as she bears a faithful testimony unto the whole counsel of God.

PRICE, GREG

Husbands and Biblical Leadership ($7.96, 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

Reformation Politics Versus the Beast ($3.98) An excellent summary of Greg 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 Covenanter (Reformed Presbyterian) message will certainly seem shocking to those who are not familiar with classic 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 ($3.98) 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). In it Covenanter minister Greg 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 ($3.98) William 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.

A sobering sermon, which we hope, all will take the time to obtain, listen to and meditate upon. "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment . . ." (Heb. 9:27).

PRIDE, MARY

The Way Home: Beyond Feminism, Back to Reality
More and more women are finding their way back to the reality of a biblical understanding of Christian womanhood. Already, many Christian wives and mothers have turned their backs on "planned barrenhood," the "me" marriage, "no-fault" child-rearing, careerism, and a host of other nonbiblical, unChristian alternatives. They have made a conscious decision to return to the biblical pattern of womanhood. Mary Pride's book is a source of inspiration and encouragement for every married Christian woman who wants to discover the biblical freedom intended for her life . . . Before she  . . . became a Christian in 1977, Mrs. Pride had been active as a radical feminist. From her experience as an insider, she shares a clear assessment of the shortcomings of feminism, and emphasizes the need to develop a new vision of Christian womanhood which is deeply rooted in biblical truth (back cover).

 POYNET, JOHN

A Shorte Treatise of Politike Power, and of the true obedience which subjectes owe to kynges and other civil Governours, with an exhortation too all true naturall Englishemen (1556)
"The second generation of reformers briskly articulated a theology of the state, with the following seminal works appearing in rapid succession in less that 30 years: Martin Bucer's De Regno Christi
(1551), John Ponet's A Short Treatise of Political Power (1556), Christopher Goodman's How Superior Powers ought to be obeyed of their subjects; and wherein they may lawfully by God's word be disobeyed and resisted (1558) . . . and Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos [or A Defense of Liberty Against Tyrants--RB] (1579)" (David Hall, Savior or Servant?: Putting Government in Its Place, 1996, pp. 224-225). We would also add Knox's Appellation to the Scottish Nobility . . . (titled Reformation, Revolution and Romanism in this catalogue), though it is shorter than the other works listed above, and therefore covers less ground. Furthermore, Hall gives us a nice overview of some of the primary points dealt with by Poynet's Short Treatise, writing: "Among the topics considered by Ponet were the following: (1) 'although [man] has reason, yet because through the Fall of the first man, his reason is radically corrupt, and sensuality has gotten the upper hand, he is not able by himself to rule himself . . .'; (2) the state was created by the people, when governors abused their power; (3) 'For the whole Decalogue and every part thereof is written as well to kings, and princes, and other public persons, as it is to private persons'; (4) mixed states yielded the longest tenures; (5) Governors do not have absolute power; and (6) Subjects are limited in their obedience to the magistrates; submission is not absolute (Chap. 4). Ponet wrote that the state's purpose was to maintain justice, and the magistrates were also subject to God's law. Remembered as an early example of Protestant resistance theory, Ponet discussed 'Whether it is lawful to depose an evil governor, and kill a tyrant?'" (Savior or Servant?, 1996, pp. 224n). One of our rarest books, 92 pages.

PRESSLY, JOHN

Review of Ralston's Inquiry into the Propriety of Using an Evangelical Psalmody in the Worship of God (1848)

 

"Among the numerous and highly interesting predictions with regard to the future glory of Zion, it is foretold, that her 'watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again the captivity of Zion.' For the arrival of this period of joy and unanimity among the watchmen of Zion, the church has for ages been employed in making prayer and supplication before God. It still remains true, however, to some extent, that diversity of opinion prevails among the watchmen of Zion; and in some parts of religious worship, they cannot 'lift up the voice together.' And in no part of religious worship does this diversity more unhappily appear, than in the delightful exercise of celebrating God's praise. Some believe, that in this part of divine worship, we have no authority to use any other 'psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs,' than those which God has furnished in his word; while others maintain that we are at liberty to use those which have been composed by uninspired men, that matter of which they have collected out of the Scriptures. It is easy to see, that such a difference in principle must exert a powerful influence in perpetuating division, and in preventing union in the church of God. To endeavor, in the use of all proper means, to remove this cause of division among brethren supposes that there is a fault somewhere, it should be the concern of every one to ascertain whether his principles and practice on this subject are conformable to the word of God. For on those who forsake, and not on those who hold fast the 'law and the testimony,' must the fault or division lie" states the author.

 

This book, of 180 pages, endeavors to correct this division by defending the position of Apostolic church -- which was exclusive Psalmody. This is the second edition, "enlarged by two additional chapters, embracing a critical analysis of Col. 3:16-17 and the modern history (from the apostolic age to the author's day--RB) of Psalmody."

PROVAN, CHARLES D.

The Bible and Birth Control
Martin Luther once proclaimed that "the purpose of marriage is not pleasure and ease but the procreation and education of children and the support of a family . . .. People who do not like children are swine, dunces, and blockheads, not worthy to be called men and women, because they despise the blessing of God, the Creator and Author of marriage" (Christian History
, Issue 39, p. 24). Martin Luther also said that birth control was the equivalent of sodomy (probably because of the likeness between homosexual wickedness and impotent sex). John Calvin declared that birth control was the murder of future persons and the Synod of Dort issued a Bible commentary which stated that contraception was the same as abortion. If you are shocked, by the strong statements from these Godly men, that really is not too surprising, because Protestant opposition to birth control has largely been forgotten in our decadent 21st century. If you want to know about Biblical principles which oppose contraception, or wish to know what the Reformers and their heirs thought about this important subject, we certainly hope that you will get this book!

Three more quotes from this book:

+ John Calvin in his Commentary on Genesis 38:8-10 states:

"Besides, he [Onan-CP] not only defrauded his brother of the right due him, but also preferred his semen to putrify the ground, rather than beget a son in his brother's name.

Verse 10: The Jews quite immodestly gabble concerning this thing. It will suffice for me briefly to have touched upon this as much as modesty in speaking permits. The voluntary spilling of semen outside of intercourse between man and woman is a monstrous thing. Deliberately to withdraw from coitus in order that semen may fall to the ground is doubly monstrous. For this is to extinguish the hope of the race and to kill before he is born--the hoped for offspring.

This impiety is especially condemned, now by the Spirit through Moses' mouth, that Onan, as it were, by a violent abortion, no less cruelly than filthily cast upon the ground the offspring of his brother, torn from the maternal womb. Besides, in this way he tried, as far as he was able, to wipe out a part of the human race. If any woman ejects a foetus from her womb by drugs, it is reckoned a crime incapable of expiation and deservedly Onan incurred upon himself the same kind of punishment, infecting the earth with his semen, in order that Tamar might not conceive a future human being as an inhabitant of the earth."

- Excerpted from _The Bible and Birth Control_ by Charles Provan (pp. 67-68), these comments by John Calvin where edited out of Calvin's Commentaries by later editors, and are translated here into English from the original Latin. In addition to many arguments against the ungodly practice of birth control, this book also contains about 35 pages of historic testimony on this point by Martin Luther, A.W. Pink, the Synod of Dordt, the Westminster Annotations, Matthew Henry, Matthew Poole, Cotton Mather, Trapp, Usher, Gill, Candlish and many more! A number of these books are available under the author's name at: http://www.swrb.com/pcopy/photoc.htm - Calvin's Commentaries are available on CD and in printed form at: http://www.swrb.com/catalog/C.htm.

 

" . . .we have found not one orthodox theologian to defend Birth Control before the 1900's NOT ONE! On the other hand, we have found that many highly regarded Protestant theologians were enthusiastically opposed to it, all the way back to the very beginning of the Reformation  . . .those in favor of Birth Control will find no one in the orthodox Protestant camp for the first four centuries to ally themselves with. (Provan in The Bible and Birth Control, p. 63)

 

Westminster Annotations (1657); Calvinist:

Commentary on Gen. 38.9 (by John Ley) - " . . .in that there is a seminal vital virtue, which perishes if the seed be spilled; and by doing this to hinder the begetting of a living child, is the first degree of murder that can be committed, and the next unto it is the marring of conception, when it is made, and causing of abortion: now such acts are noted in the scripture as horrible crimes, because, otherwise many might commit them, and not know the evil of them: it is conceived, that his brother Er before, was his brother in evil thus far, that both of them satisfied their sensuality against the order of nature, and therefore the Lord cut them off both alike with sudden vengeance; which may be for terror to those Popish Onanites who condemn marriage, and live in sodomitical impurity, and to those who, in marriage, care not for the increase of children, (which is the principle use of the conjugal estate) but for the satisfying of their concupiscence."

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.

PURITAN REFORMED CHURCH OF EDMONTON (Session: Greg Price, Greg Barrow, Lyndon Dohms)

A Brief Defence of Dissociation in the Present Circumstances (1996)

 

This work explains why Christians should separate themselves from those churches which deny biblical truth and its implications. It defends this position using many Reformation source documents. Samuel Rutherford has been especially misunderstood concerning separation. Examples of misleading and seriously flawed presentations of Rutherford's position on the church and separation have been seen in Walker's The Theology and Theologians of Scotland 1560-1750, Bacon's The Visible Church and Outer Darkness and a host of other works -- all of which overlook foundational second Reformation truths set forth by Rutherford and his fellow Covenanters. This book clearly demonstrates, from Rutherford's own actions and teaching (during the Protester/Resolutioner controversy in the Scottish church), how far off many previous works on this subject have been.

 

One example, given by the Puritan Reformed elders (below), exhibits Rutherford's (and the other Protesters) stand regarding covenanting, close communion and separation,

 

In fact, the issue of faithfulness to the covenants actually rent the Church of Scotland into two parties so that the Protesters declared the Assemblies of the Resolutioners (the covenant-breaking party that developed out of the Engagers) to be unconstitutional and pretended Assemblies. The covenants were obvious terms of communion, for Protesters and Resolutioners refused to meet in the same General Assemblies together. Protesters did not recognize the unlawful courts of the Resolutioner Assemblies and would not attend them when cited to appear. Protesters were deposed from the ministry by Resolutioner Assemblies when they refused to recognize their lawful authority to rule on behalf of Christ.

 

It [the joint General Assembly of Protesters and Resolutioners--PRC] met in St. Andrews on 16th July. . . . Rutherford, and other twenty-one sympathisers, protested against the meeting as unconstitutional. . . . There [later at Dundee, where the General Assembly of Protesters, who had separated themselves from the Resolutioners, was now meeting--PRC], on 22nd July [1651--PRC], Rutherford's cogent Protest declining the Assembly was read. Balcarres [a Resolutioner-- PRC] in vain demanded that the twenty-two absent Protesters should be reported for civil punishment for their reflections on the King, Parliament, and Church. The Assembly [of Resolutioners--PRC] ordered Presbyteries to deal with them. It was ultimately agreed to cite [James--PRC] Guthrie, Patrick Gillespie, James Simson, James Naismith, and John Menzies. They did not compear [i.e. appear at the Resolutioner assembly--PRC]. The [Resolutioner--PRC] Assembly deposed Guthrie, Gillespie, and Simson, suspended Naismith, and referred Menzies to the Commission. After the meeting of the Assembly at St. Andrews, a work was published entitled A Vindication of the Freedom and Lawfulness of the late Assembly [by James Wood, a Resolutioner--PRC], etc. This was answered by The Nullity of the Pretended Assembly at Saint Andrews and Dundee [signed by 40 Protesters including Rutherford and Guthrie--PRC](Hewison, The Covenanters, Vol. II, pp. 34,35, emphases added).

 

Separate Assemblies of Protesters and Resolutioners met in 1652 and in 1653 in Edinburgh. The Protesters declared the Assembly of the Resolutioners in 1652 to be "unlawful, unfrie, and unjust" (Hewison, The Covenanters, Vol. II, p. 43). It is worthy to be noted that the issue between the Protesters and the Resolutioners did not deal at all with the propriety of ministers and members of the Church of Scotland swearing the covenants, but over the issue of faithfulness to the covenants. Both sides upheld the obligation of ministers and members to own the covenants. Furthermore, unfaithfulness to this term of communion (i.e. faithfully maintaining the covenants) on the part of the Resolutioners led the Protesters to separate from their brethren to avoid schism and in order to maintain a truly constituted church. They would not serve with the Resolutioners while they maintained different terms of communion, neither would they serve them the Lord's Supper (e.g. Rutherford refused to serve communion with Blair at St. Andrews; and on another occasion Rutherford and Moncrieff debarred Resolutioners from the table at Scoonie). Such actions can only be defended if the covenants were terms of communion. Were the covenants biblical terms of communion? We testify that they were and still are biblical terms of communion. To affirm otherwise is in effect to charge the faithful covenanters (Protesters) of the Second Reformation with sin and to undermine their covenanted reformation and the biblical presbyterianism they taught and practiced.

 

The following excerpt gives a short synopsis of those truths which this book seeks to vindicate. The elders of The Puritan Reformed Church write,

 

"Though it is not necessary that a truly constituted church be absolutely pure as to the doctrine taught or embraced, as to the ordinances administered, or the public worship performed, it is, however, necessary that its constitution be founded upon and agreeable to the Word of God and that its constitution reflect the light attained to by the purest of Reformed Churches (for all reformation must be biblical reformation if it is reformation at all, otherwise it is not a reformation but a deformation, cf. Phil. 3:16). Wherefore, to adopt a constitution that corrupts the light of Scripture or the light of reformation is to adopt a false constitution. A false constitution renders a church and its courts unconstitutional. When the Confession of Faith (25:4) speaks of degrees of purity among particular churches within the "catholick church", we believe it designates degrees of purity within truly constituted churches. For example, though the church of Corinth was plagued with division, immorality, and false doctrine promoted by some within the church (and therefore manifested a lesser degree of purity than other truly constituted churches, cf. the church of Smyrna in Rev. 2:8-11), it was, nevertheless, a truly constituted church for it was constituted by apostolic authority (with apostolic doctrine, apostolic worship, apostolic government, and apostolic discipline). Thus, for a church to constitutionally adhere to Arminianism, Dispensationalism, or Charismatic experientialism (false doctrine), singing uninspired hymns or using instrumental music in public praise (false worship), Episcopacy or Independency (false government), or unrestricted communion (false discipline) is to qualify as a constitutionally false church. That is not to say that there are no believers in churches that are not truly constituted (there may be many in some cases). Nor is it to imply that ministers or elders within those churches do not courageously stand for many truths taught in Scripture. It is simply to say that authority to rule in the church must come from Christ, and if a church does not have a constitution of which He approves (as King of His church), then there is no lawful authority to rule or to administer the ordinances on His behalf."

 

This book is the best short introduction to questions regarding the visible church and separation which we list.

BARROW, GREG

Covenanted Uniformity: The Protestant Remedy for Disunity

These tapes, read by Larry Birger, are chapter 3 in Greg Barrow's The Covenanted Reformation Defended (free at: http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/misrep3.htm ). They set forth the scriptural, Protestant view of public social covenanting, showing how the National Covenant of Scotland and the Solemn League and Covenant of England, Scotland and Ireland bind us today, and how the renewal of these will heal the deplorable disunity of the Church. "Cardinal doctrines of Protestantism" (to borrow the words of Charles Hodge) such as the doctrine of churches and nations being "moral persons" are clearly explained, and the separationist "deep pit of covenant breaking" into which the modern Church has fallen is laid open and a helping hand extended. A must for those wishing to understand the biblical doctrine of covenanting, and the principles and practice of our Protestant forefathers!

PURITAN REFORMED CHURCH OF EDMONTON (Session: Greg Price, Greg Barrow, Lyndon Dohms)

A Reformation Discussion of Extraordinary Predictive Prophecy Subsequent to the Closing of the Canon of Scripture (1998)

 

"The following document is a response to questions raised by Mike Wagner (a member of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton or PRCE) regarding the position of the PRCE on the subject of extraordinary predictive prophecy subsequent to the closing of the canon of Scripture. This is not intended to be an exhaustive treatment of the subject, but simply a response to specific questions asked. Though this was not initially intended for public distribution, we have received requests that it be made available to a wider audience. It is hoped that this summary of our position will aid the Church of Christ by encouraging further study of this difficult subject" (Introductory paragraph).

 

This book (of 28 pages) clearly demonstrates that many major Reformers (and even the early church fathers) were not strict cessationists, nor were they "Charismatics." It shows how extraordinary predictive prophecy was practiced during both Reformations and how the Reformers justified this from Scripture. Proof for this continuing practice (and the parameters laid out in Scripture) is provided from the teaching and practice of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland (from the Second Book of Discipline), John Knox, Samuel Rutherford, George Gillespie, James Durham, David Steele, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Thomas Goodwin, Justin Martyr and a host of others. Notice, for example, the following comment by George Gillespie,

 

I must say it, to the glory of God, there were in the church of Scotland, both in the time of our first reformation, and after the reformation, such extraordinary men as were more than ordinary pastors and teachers, even holy prophets receiving extraordinary revelations from God, and foretelling diverse strange and remarkable things, which did accordingly come to pass punctually, to the great admiration of all who knew the particulars. Such were Mr. Wishart the martyr, Mr. Knox the reformer, also Mr. John Welsh, Mr. John Davidson, Mr. Robert Bruce, Mr. Alexander Simpson, Mr. Fergusson, and others. It were too long to make a narrative here of all such particulars, and there are so many of them stupendous, that to give instance in some few, might seem to derogate from the rest, but if God give me opportunity, I shall think it worth the while to make a collection of these things (George Gillespie, "Miscellany Questions," in The Works of George Gillespie Vol. 2, Chapter 5, section 7, p. 30).

 

The following eight questions are answered herein:

 

Question #1 - What is the difference between the theological position on prophecy (extra biblical revelation) of the above mentioned men of God and the present day charismatics?

 

Question #2 - What is the explicit Scriptural teaching that underlies and justifies what those men of God did? Why should I believe that extra-biblical revelation can still occur?

 

Question #3 - Is the cessationist position basically correct with extraordinary exceptions, or is the cessationist position a theological error that should be repudiated?

 

Question #4 - Is it permissible for church officers to receive extra-biblical revelation that will guide them in the direction of church affairs?

 

Question #5 - Is it permissible for members of our congregations to claim to receive extra-biblical communications from God about future events and to claim to be prophets?

 

Question #6 - How would someone know that he has received extra-biblical communication from God rather than having simply deceived himself?

 

Question #7 - How would I know that someone claiming to get extra-biblical revelations from God is actually getting such revelations from God?

 

Question #8 - What is the difference between mysticism and genuine spiritual experience?
