Re: [Covenanted Reformation] Reading of Authors that disagree with Covenanted Position?
- Hi Martin and SnPhillip,I asked my friend in Ulster, to ask the man in their church Jim Murdoch, who has read more primary doc covenanter stuff than anyone I know, about the issue of reading works by non-covenanters. Posted below is what she said back to me after asking Jim after AM worship... hope this helps. Susan"----- OriginJim said that when reading Durham either on Revelation or Isaiah 53, he has quoted other writers e.g. John Owen. This shows that they approved of reading such. He is looking for the exact reference. Also, yes, Cromwell's armies did sing Psalms as they went into battle. There wasn't really much hymnsinging about in those days by anyone anyway.From: sn_phillipSent: Tuesday, February 22, 2005 6:52 PMSubject: [Covenanted Reformation] Reading of Authors that disagree with Covenanted Position?
I was wondering if any one knows what the covenanters thought or said
about reading authors of a different persuasion than the covenanted
position? I know of some presently that hold to the covenanted
position that think that reading people other than covenanted writers
is wrong. That covenanters would not want to subject themselves to
the reading of John Owen or any other theological person who is an
independent or neo presbyterian. If any one can shed some light on
this topic I would very much appreciate it. It is almost as if they
apply occasional hearing to the private reading of books
