Along the same lines as the previous post, the latest Modern Reformation has a short article on “American Tragedy: Jonathan Edwards on Justification.” The article maintains that Edwards was, in significant respects, closer to the Thomists than to the Reformers on the question of justification. I waited for the other shoe to drop — e.g. Edwards was a heretic, covenant and justification under attack, etc. — but nothing. Nothing but an eery silence.
One reason why they don’t finish their syllogisms should be obvious. If you write off Van Til, John Murray, and Jonathan Edwards as not Reformed, and heretical to boot, you start to look like those Turbulent Waters Revival Books johnnies, who are the only Christians left in the world.
