Great Questions! A Further Response - White Horse Inn Blog

Mike Horton tells why "reformed" Baptists are more influenced by the Anabaptists than by the Reformation.

Thanks for all the thoughtful interaction regarding my recent blog post. I’ll pick out Andrew Meredith’s for further reflection:

As part of the so-called “young, restless, and Reformed” movement, I would consider myself an evangelical who has been significantly impacted by the Reformed tradition. Although I have respect for the “Reformed rooms,” I could not agree with the Reformed confessions. My question is twofold: on what basis does one accept these confessions as one’s own belief, and what exactly is there authority in the church?


Many Protestants today—especially in America—view creeds and confessions with suspicion, or at least treat them as suggestive for individual believers rather than as a shared confession of doctrine. However, this is itself a tradition. It’s largely shaped by Anabaptist and revivalist sources.

Roman Catholics are bound to the church’s teachings on the ground that they are simply the teachings of the church. Reformed Christians are bound to their church’s teachings on the ground that they summarize Holy Scripture.
