In the long run, I don't think the Primitive Baptists would take to the
psalms because it would clash too much with the anaBaptist
mindset/theology and a NT Book of Acts church. But maybe on the other
hand, they could put up with the inconsistency of it.
As for Steele, doesn't he make the jump from lining out being a mere
circumstance as it is in the Westminster Directory to actually being a
requirement in public worship, i.e. continuous singing is sin (even
though he didn't call a meeting of the Session of the RPA General
Meeting and make an official binding pronouncement on it)?
