Faith Unplugged

Sharing Options


I guess I should be pleased that I caught up with Peter Leithart. The April edition of The Trinity Review is a chapter from a book called Not Reformed At All, which presents itself as a response to my “Reformed” is Not Enough. I am tempted to write another book entitled And Both Are Too Much.

One striking thing about this piece is the repeated use of the phrase “justification by belief” (instead of “justification by faith”) This highlights, as I suppose, the, um, heterodox Clarkian approach that wants us to be justified by assent to propositions.

So then, we are living in a time when assensus can be severed from fiducia, and the fiducia thrown away like it was a wrapper, and this can be done in the name of a defense of Reformed orthodoxy! Maybe LaHaye and Jenkins are right and it is the last days.
