O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Retraction: [Reasonable Christian] New comment on Pelagianism Revived? Meredith G. Kline - The Mosa....

If you click on the links below you'll see that I've apparently jumped to conclusions on the Kerux controvery over Meredith Kline and the alleged pelagianism in his typology of Israel and the republication of the covenant of works (See WCF 19:2).  By implication then I have jumped to conclusions about Dr. Michael Horton and Dr. R. Scott Clark and their possible connection to Kline's views. 

Everyone has knots between the ears at times and looks like I made a major goof on this one.  I'll have to read more on the issue before commenting further.

Sincerely yours in Christ

See also, Dr. Clark's rebuttal here:

Consider the Source Part 1 Follow the link at the bottom of the page. There are 5 parts to the response.

Also, Dr. Clark says that Caspar Olevianus taught the republication of the covenant of works in the 16th century. Olevianus was co-author of the Heidelberg Catechism, along with Zacharius Ursinus.

Be that as it may, the covenant of works is not taught in the Three Forms of Unity nor is there any mention of a republication of it.

Canons of Dordt. 3rd and 4th Heads of Doctrine: Article 5

In the same light are we to consider the law of the decalogue, delivered by God to His peculiar people the Jews by the hands of Moses. For though it discovers the greatness of sin, and more and more convinces man thereof, yet as it neither points out a remedy nor imparts strength to extricate him from misery, and thus being weak through the flesh leaves the transgressor under the curse, man cannot by this law obtain saving grace.
