that it would seem that the Confession that is the greatest
attainment (as measured by Scripture) and that was covenanted with
God would take precedence. Why would one want to slide back to a
subordinate standard of lesser attainment? Were the Three Forms of
Unity (TFU) covenanted with God just as the Scottish Covenants were
or were the TFU merely affirmed as agreeable to Scripture? I know
next to nothing about mainland Reformation except for the First
Reformation and Dort.
