The Real Turretin on: The Righteousness of Christ

October 30, 2008

Richard Smith, at The Spurgeon Blog has provided an interesting post in which he considers what the real Turretin had to say about the Righteousness of Christ (link). Turretin’s perspective here is quite informative as he Biblically contrasts Christ and our faith in Christ.

The real Turretin on: The Faith That Saves

October 18, 2008

Richard Smith at the Spurgeon Blog has provided another delightful post on the topic of sola fide and what is meant by that term in Reformation theology (link). This is a very important topic, and an area that differentiates Reformed theology not only from Romanism and Socinianism but also from much of modern Arminianism, which reduces faith to a work. Naturally, a centerpiece in the post is a quotation from the real Francis Turretin.

The real Turretin on: The Instrumental Use of Faith

October 15, 2008

Richard Smith at the Spurgeon Blog has an interesting post on the Instrumental Use of Faith, including a nice, but short, quotation from the real Turretin (link). Sometimes I think that it is a proper understanding of Justification by Faith that separates nominal Sola-Fideans (such as modern Arminians) from true Sola-Fideans (i.e. the Reformed).
