12610RE: [Covenanted Reformation] Re: the FPCS disagrees with the Scottish Commissioners, the Westminster Assembly,etc
- Apr 4, 2005
Edgar, you are quite right that the FPCS is descended from the Church of Scotland following the persecuting times. But let it be remembered that a majority of the persecuted Covenanters from the persecuting times chose to join the Church of Scotland of the 1690s. That included almost all the Covenanter ministers.
It was only a minority that chose to be dissenters and not join after the persecuting times.
Therefore, you cannot claim a monopoly on those that endured persecution during the persecuting times for their dissent during those times.
