      No, it was the English House of Commons that required the prooftexts,
      and whatever positive contribution they have had, the intention had
      simply been a stalling effort on the part of an erastian party in the
      House of Commons, knowing if the state agreed to recognize the WCF as
      the officially recognized creed of England, they would be legally
      limiting their own power to interfere in the gov't, worship, and
      displinary cases in the national church.
      See, for example:
      The Scots would have adopted it without the prooftexts for the same
      reason they adopted the Apostles' Creed without it having prooftexts.
      The doctrine was recognized as Scriptural whether references to any
      specific texts, and any exegetical argumentation therefrom, were
      wedded to specific clauses and statements or no.
      However, as for the Westminser Assembly itself, as much as they knew
      the process would stall up the works, there was some confidence
      within the members of Assembly that they could fill in those blanks
      quickly enough, and that in so doing, they could not but strengthen
      their case, and they fulfilled the task as required.
