Ha! Now you're really applying the pressure
Actually I was thinking about Dukes in Hershey (former G-man), somewhat central -eh?

Just to be more clear (the last time I said something that sounded
like I disagreed with historic covenanter principles, my name appeared
in an e-publication amongst a list of people abandoning the Covenanter
movement!).. . Writings from people like David Steele aren't always
helpful for the current times, as much of what he wrote was aimed at
people who had always practiced such-and-such, and for good reason,
but now are beginning to abandon such-and-such, and for not good reasons.
In other words, a piece of polemic against those scheming to abandon a
practice like lining-out, is not the most helpful sort of document for
convincing one why they should start lining-out if they never heard of
I'm for lining-out, as I think there are many good reasons for it.
But I wouldn't start my discussion of lining-out by throwing David
Steele at someone right off the bat!

It's a charity thing is what it is.

my question is prompted by some writings of some older Covenantors.
