Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Pastwords #50: Simon Episcopius ; Glimpses of Christian History

The Confession Written by Simon Episcopius ; Glimpses of Christian History

Click on the title to see the Remonstrandts' confession of faith. This is the doctrinal system that the Canons of Dordt where written to refute. You'll notice throughout the equivocation used by the Arminians to justify their views regarding conditional election, foreseen faith, and conditional perseverance. Is it any wonder that the Dutch Reformed churches condemned Arminianism as a return to Rome and semi-pelagianism?
