The History of Confessional Christology

The Bible’s affirmation that Christ is both God and man yet one Christ is the mystery upon which all of redemption hangs. The Confession does not attempt to explain this mystery but presents us the classic Chalcedonian paradox, saying, “two whole, perfect, and distinct natures were inseparably joined together in one person, without conversion, composition,...

Can We Learn From Roman Catholics?

Thanks to The Particular Baptist team for feedback and edits for this article. There is plenty going around suggesting that it would be improper to utilize Roman Catholic teachers in theology especially as it relates to the doctrine of God. It is easy to see why this would be the case. Roman Catholicism is not... Continue Reading →

Lessons Learned From the Thomas Collier Incident

The Particular Baptists were not strangers to controversy. One of, if not their biggest, disagreements with the establishment around them was on the issue of infant baptism. They were distinct in that they generally argued against it from the perspective of covenant theology (see Sam Renihan's book, From Shadow to Substance). Although they agreed with...

Of Creation Part 1

*This post is adopted from a presentation on chapter 4 paragraph 1 of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith 1.
