James Kerr, on the Sabbath, June 20th, 1880, in a sermon preached in
Greyfriar's Churchyard, in Edinburgh, titled "A Third Reformation
Necessary: or, the Piety, Principles, and Patriotism of Scotland's Covenanted
Martyrs; With Application to the Present Times
," makes the same point
concerning the monumental character of the international transactions that
transpired during the Covenanters' combat with the forces of antichrist.
While also giving us great insight into some of the most important battles
of Second Reformation warfare, Kerr proclaims, regarding the combat of
these faithful witnesses,
They stood for the Supreme Authority of the Holy Scriptures; for the
Exclusive Headship of the Lord Jesus over the Church; for the Church's
independent spiritual jurisdiction and power; for the Divine right of
Presbytery; for the purity of worship in the Church and the Church's
freedom from all unauthorized rites and ceremonies
. They stood for every
pin of the tabernacle, for every item of truth to which they had attained...
'Whose faith follow.' Let us embrace those doctrines affecting the Church's
existence, privileges and prosperity, for which the martyrs suffered, and
let us imitate their fidelity to the high attainments of a preceding period.
The great Scriptural doctrines for which they were honoured to contend
and which constituted the Church's glory, are still more or less lightly
esteemed by even many professing Christians and ecclesiastical
denominations... Arminianism is making rapid strides to popularity.
Dishonour is done to the royal prerogative of Christ as Zion's King by those
Churches that appeal to or base the claim of rights upon the Revolution
Settlement -- a Settlement that proceeded upon Erastian principles and left
many of the attainments for which the martyrs suffered in the oblivion to
which the Stuarts had consigned them... The doctrine of Christ's Exclusive
Headship over His own Church, and of the freedom of the Church under her
exclusive head, requires to be vindicated and testified for against all
modern departures therefrom. There is need to maintain and propagate
the doctrine of the Divine right of the Presbyterian form of Church
government
, for at the present time only two of the Churches -- and these
among the smallest -- hold this doctrine in all its Scriptural completeness.
There is a need to maintain the high scriptural doctrine concerning the
modes of worship in the Church, that no rite or ceremony is to be
introduced into the forms of worship for which an express prescription,
direct or indirect, cannot be produced from God's Own Word
. The additions
to the Church's worship of forms of human invention, and called for in
order to the gratification of mere religious fashion, constitute one of the
saddest signs of the present time
. 'As though God has been defective,' as
Charnock writes with reference to such innovators, 'in providing for His
own honour in His institutions, and modelling His own service, but stood in
need of our directions and the caprichios of our brains. In this they do
not seem to climb above God, yet they set themselves on the throne of God,
and would grasp one end of His sceptre in their own hands. They do not
attempt to take the crown from God's head but discover a bold ambition to
shuffle their hairy scalps under it, and wear a part of it upon their own.'
By the unflinching maintenance and profession of these doctrines, then,
we are to prove ourselves the legitimate descendants of Scotland's
Covenanted Martyrs
. This duty may draw down upon us reproach and
shame, but, as the doctrines are Scriptural, the shame, like that of the
martyrs, is transformed into glory. These doctrines are not now popular
nor fashionable; still they are in advance of this age and prevailing
ecclesiastical opinions, and they shall be popular and fashionable in the
Church everywhere when 'God shall help her, and that at the breaking of
the morning.' They shall have a resurrection with power, when Zion shall
be set upon the mountains, and when the glory of her King shall array her,
they shall be triumphant when the whole banner for the truth shall wave upon the
battlements of the Millennial Church of Jesus
" (Cited in Sermons Delivered
in Times of Persecution in Scotland
[1880 ed., SWRB reprint 1996], pp.
32-35, emphases added).

"The Puritan Hard Drive is an exquisite piece of work.

The purchaser of this fine product will have at his fingertips more of the best Reformed literature than he can probably ever get around to reading.

Truly, if a Christian wants to invest wisely in his own growth, this is the best investment he can make at this time.

More than highly recommended!"
