Revising a revision

2013/12/23

Whereas my original proposed revision wasn’t up to date with the internet age, and

Whereas so many dynamic proposals for retooling and recasting Reformed theology are posted on the internet, and

Whereas many of said dynamic proposals for retooling and recasting Reformed theology are first enunciated at pastors conferences, along with critiques of conventional Reformed theology as hopelessly captive to Enlightenment Rationalism and other “isms” that Doug Wilson doesn’t like.

Therefore, be it resolved that my proposed revision be revised as follows (additions in italics):

Do you mostly receive and reservedly adopt the Confession of Faith and the Catechisms of this Church, as sort of containing the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures; and do you promise that if at any time you find this system of doctrine out of accord with any of the fundamentals of your own system of doctrine, you will, on your own initiative, make known to your flock, pastors conferences and the internet the changes which need to take place in the Confession of Faith and the Catechisms due to changes in your own views since the assumption of your ordination vow?

    You forgot the “support”: Acts 20:29-30 (CREC U(nauthorized)RV):

    I know that after I go wiser shepherds will come in among you, reprogramming the flock for the better; and from among your own selves will arise witty, bold, peace-loving men; correcting my own foolish errors– including those on justification, baptism, the Lord’s Supper and adoption– thereby achieving unity at all costs. Beware of divisive hateful individuals who call these teachers wolves!

    Greg, you have shown I don’t know my appendix to the Apocrypha very well. Shall have to brush up on that!
