The Confession of 1689 and Covenant Theology (Jeffrey Johnson)

Excerpt: For our Baptist forefathers, an alteration of the doctrine of the covenants is an alteration of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel, in its broader context, includes the fulfilling of the covenant of works by the Second Adam, Jesus the Christ, that was broken by the first Adam; the Second Adam endured its curses and established its blessings for all those who are chosen by God to be represented by the Second Adam in the covenant of grace.”

From the Covenant of Works to the Covenant of Grace (Pascal Denault)

Excerpt: The covenant of grace is, simply put, salvation by grace alone, by faith alone, through Christ alone. Basically, any man is either under the curse of the broken covenant of works in Adam or under the blessing of the covenant of grace in Christ.”


Confession of Faith

Books

The Legitimacy and Use of Confessions of Faith

Excerpt: When men use the very words of the Bible to promote heresy, when the Word of Truth is perverted to serve error, nothing less than a confession of faith will serve to publicly draw the lines between truth and error.”

Confess! Confess! Confess!

Excerpt: Scripture is the foundation of the confessions and confessions merely articulate a particular interpretation of Scripture.”

Excerpt: …confessions help the church recall what she believes. Without them, she forgets.”

How to Subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (Tom Hicks)

Excerpt: Thus, there is a way for a church to confess its understanding of the whole counsel of God” and still make room for a great deal of theological disagreement and for those who have a simple but sincere profession of faith in Christ. This is, in fact, what I believe Scripture requires the church to do: confess the whole counsel of God with a godly spirit of unity in the essentials, liberty in non-essentials, and love in all things.”

B.H. Carroll and Robust Confessionalism (Tom Ascol)

Excerpt: A church with a little creed is a church with a little life. The more divine doctrines a church can agree on, the greater its power, and the wider its usefulness. The fewer its articles of faith, the fewer its bonds of union and compactness.”

Excerpt: The modern cry: Less creed and more liberty,” is a, degeneration from the vertebrate to the jellyfish, and means less unity and less morality, and it means more heresy. Definitive truth does not create heresy — it only exposes and corrects. Shut off the creed and the Christian world would fill up with heresy unsuspected and uncorrected, but none the less deadly.”

Excerpt: A robust, sound confession of faith is in no danger of taking the place of Scripture or being elevated to the same authority as Scripture.”


Eschatology

Note: Though these resources present an Amillennial view, Reformed theology does not necessitate any particular millennial view. i.e., The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith is open to (Historic) Premillennial, Postmillennial, or Amillennial viewpoints.
