This anthology of the best that has been written on the purpose, structure, and function of the Christian church in the past five centuries is an indispensable resource for the twenty-first century Christian. The authors analyze and refute the errors of feminism, popery, clericalism, Episcopalianism, Erastianism, ecumenism, experientialism, revivalism, aestheticism, fundamentalism, and irrationalism; and they sketch a revolutionary blueprint for a Christian church modeled according to the Scriptures.
The modern church bears little resemblance to the early church or the church of the Reformation. Modern Christianity is marked by weak doctrine, a touchy feel good pastorate, a "do-what-thou-wilt" view of law and absolutes, anti-intellectualism, and as a result we have a confused laity as to the call and mission of the Church, so much so, that the modern church hardly reflects the determination of the Body of Christ that toppled Rome, twice. The essays in this book will inspire, and God willing, give the readers a glimpse of the pristine purity and power the Church once had. What we have lost site of, what we need to understand, is that the Reformation did not end in the Sixteenth Century. The creed Semper Reformada, always reforming, needs to be our creed too, now more than ever. Far from being the Church Militant, the modern church has become the "Church Effeminate."
This book is a collection of essays from some of the greatest Reformed thinkers past and present on the call and duty of the Church.
