Re: The Church Adrift
- Hi Bob,
Actually, we're trying to not be owned by/affiliated with the Free Church
(Continuing) as such, it's just that two of our committee are FCC ministers.
But there's another committee member who is an FP, and myself, of the Presbyterian
Reformed Church of America (except for one of its churches where I'm a member,
in England), and we have another committee member from another church. We've
had ministers from the FPs and other Reformed denominations to give our
Annual addresses, which we also publish on cassette, CD and in booklet form.
The James Begg Society was originally set up by three FC ministry college
students, two of whom are still committee members, and now ministers in
the FCC. We very likely have many more member-subscribers who are non-FCC
than FCC, form all around the world. We maybe have as many FP subscribers

being comfortable with some of the particulars they proposed. I would
like to see a critique of the position from someone who does not deny
the Free Offer itself. Hyper C's have in the past lumped me in with
Murray/Stonehouse because I believe in the Free Offer of the Gospel,
though I do not agree with everything M&S wrote either.

As Simon mentioned, Dr. Young has a pretty good statement and basically
critiques M&S without naming any names. After all, he wrote the Minority
Committee Report on psalmody with J Murray in the OPC. It was reprinted
(?) in the PRC magazine, but the last time I checked was not in the
archive at their site. J Robbin's Trinity Review ran Garret Mattingly's
Myth of Common Grace #54 in Mar/Apr. 1987 which critiques the M&S version
of the FO and should be on the Trinity Found. website.
cordially in Christ
