Collect of the Day
O LORD, we beseech thee to keep thy Church and household continually in thy true religion; that they who do lean only upon the hope of thy heavenly grace may evermore be defended by thy mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

My friend, David Knox, delivered this sermon two weeks ago at Glory of God Anglican Church in Cocoa, Florida. David is the son of the late D. Broughton Knox, former principal of Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia.
To his credit, David reminds us of Pilgrim's Progress in this sermon. Dr. Gordon H. Clark highly recommended John Bunyan's Calvinist allegory of the Christian life. (To read Pilgrim's Progress online click here).
Although David and I have some serious disagreements in regards to his self-described Amyraldianism--he says he is a 4.5 point Calvinist--we are in substantial agreement on a host of other issues. We are both solidly opposed to sacerdotalism, clericalism, and high church Anglo-Catholicism/Arminianism. Of course, I am a Clarkian presuppositionalist and David is not. However, it should be noted that D. Broughton Knox, although not perfect, did advocate the view that Scripture is propositional revelation, not analogical revelation: The Nature of Revelation, Part I and The Nature of Revelation, Part II. As far as I know, D. Broughton Knox is the only Anglican theologian who upheld a view that is in substantial agreement with Dr. Gordon H. Clark's adherence to the Scriptures as the logical and propositional revelation of God to man.
