Freely Give (Christmas Sermon Short)

"All our Christmas gifts are also a celebration of that great gift that was given to us. We celebrate the Incarnation—the prerequisite gift that enabled God to give us the even greater gift of the crucifixion and resurrection. Jesus was born to die, and all of this—birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension—was given for us men and for our salvation." – Douglas WilsonFull sermon: https://www.christkirk.com/sermon/christmas-presents-1/

The Federal Vision: A Discussion with Douglas Wilson and James R. White

Posted by Canon Press on Saturday, December 14, 2019

And While We’re On the Subject . . .

In light of all the interest my conversation with James White generated, someone on Twitter suggested I post the chapter on justification from my book Westminster Systematics — my commentary on the Westminster Confession. Good idea, thought I, and so here it is. And here is a link to the book itself, if you are interested.

And because I don’t know how to leave well enough alone, below you can find my rendering of the Westminster Confession into verse. Only a dollar. Can you believe it is only a dollar? And can you believe that I rendered the Westminster Confession into verse? Some of you may be suspecting by this point that I have a little altar at my house set up for the Westminster, with candles and everything. Well, I don’t. But only because the Westminster prohibits that kind of tomfool thing.

I found Doug after all of the FV hubbub. I just watched the interview Doug did with James White. I have read Doug and listen to him talk about this topic several times, and I still don’t get why it ruffled so many feathers. I read the OPC response, and I found it to be well done and an honest interaction and disagreement. But beyond that all I have found is confusion about his position and intentional misunderstanding by his opposing interlocutors. Would anyone be able to help me understand why this became such a thing? I honestly don’t get… Read more »

I’m with you. I still don’t understand the points of disagreement and/or why Federal Vision is “wrong”. The more I look into it, the more confused I become. But I believe Pastor Doug is a honest saint who deserves better than the unkind criticisms of his detractors.

Same here. Just seems like a club people use to hit him with. Its not a good look (for those people) imo.

True confession: I’ve never read the WCF all the way through…except for Doug’s versification. Copyediting that forced me to refer often to the original, which made me wish for a time machine to go back and offer my services to the authors that it might have been made more comprehensible from the get-go!

It’s a little surprising it’s as comprehensible as it is. I’ve sometimes wondered if the meeting and process that produced it wasn’t similar to some of the early church councils, where wrangling, arguing and horsetrading culminated in a convoluted document all but a few signed. Then the Emperor came into the hall and said plainly “You either sign it or I will excommunicate you.” And the recalcitrant bishops promptly signed and lived to fight another day.
