ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Implications of the Second Point of Common Grace

The reasoning behind the Manhattan Declaration and its signers is flawed from the beginning. To understand why, it is necessary to understand how the doctrine of common grace is a departure from the classical Reformed faith and from Scripture. Professor emertus Herman Hanko describes in this piece how Calvin Seminary essentially went liberal because of the doctrine of common grace. What implications does this have for other so-called "evangelical" seminaries who wish to focus on a broad appeal to all evangelicals rather than being more concerned with biblical truth than "fellowship" with minimalists? To read Professor Hanko's remarks see, The Implications of the Second Point of Common Grace.

You can read the Three Points of Common Grace here: Common Grace. You will not hear these kinds of issues discussed on The White Horse Inn or the Heidelblog. You will not hear or read about it in the broader Reformed circles because by and large the vast majority of them have bought into the incipient Arminianism inherent in the doctrine of common grace.
