If you’re going to be in the Fort Worth area this weekend, come hang with us at the Ginger Man to celebrate The Confessing Baptist’s one year anniversary. Guys and gals are welcome. I even have it on good faith, ladies, that some of the “Confessing Baptist wives” will be there. It would also be a good opportunity to meet some of our CredoCovenant fellows (especially considering that about a third of us are Confessing Baptists). We look forward to seeing you there!
“Our very own Junior reproduced The Orthodox Catechism, below is an intro, and a link to the Scrib’d version.
In 1680, Pastor Hercules_Collins of Old Gravel Lane Particular Baptist Church, London, England, and Subscriber to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith, revised the Heidelberg_Catechism for his church and published it as the Orthodox Catechism.
Included in the Orthodox Catechism are two sections rejected by the 1677 General Assembly of Particular Baptists, those being “Of Singing of Psalms and &” and “Of the Laying on of Hands”. Although rejected by the London Assembly, these two sections were added by the Philadelphia Baptist Association to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith and published in 1742 as the Philadelphia Baptist Confession of Faith.
