Book Review: The True Profession of the Gospel: Augustus Toplady and Reclaiming Our Reformed Foundations



And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. (Luke 24:45 NKJ)




The link below is directed to a review of a book by Lee Gatiss, the new president of Church Society in the United Kingdom.  Although Mr. Gatiss is a bit too much on the neo-Calvinist and ecumenical side of things for my comfort, I was surprisingly pleased to see him contend earnestly for the theology of Augustus Toplady.  In my opinion, George Whitefield was unwilling to see the logical consequences for compromising with the heresy of Arminianism.  Because of that his legacy has been besmirched and used by the enemy to promote unbelief and skepticism in the Anglican Communion.  Worse, Anglo-Catholicism has become the dominate modus operandi of popular Anglicanism.  

That Anglo-Catholicism's denouncement of sola Scriptura leads inevitably to pelagianism and theological liberalism and relativism is beyond doubt in my opinion.  Take a long and hard look at The Episcopal Church today and you will see what I am talking about.

As the late Dr. Gordon H. Clark said, without the determining instrument of Scripture as a logical revelation morality and truth disappear.  Scripture alone is the Word of God.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 3:15-16; Matthew 4:4; John 10:35; 12:48-49)

Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me." 45 And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures. 46 Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 "and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 "And you are witnesses of these things. (Luke 24:44-48 NKJ)
