"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Dr. Meredith G. Kline & B.B. Warfield

    Here is a great resource for anyone doing research into Meredith G. Kline. (or Covenant theology) Dr. Meredith G. Kline Online - Website dedicated to his Books, articles and essays

    For over half a century, Dr. Meredith G. Kline, an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, served as a professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary (in Philadelphia), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Seminary California. He received his B.D. and Th.M. degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia) and his Ph.D. degree in Assyriology and Egyptology from Dropsie College.

    Warfield's Apologetics
    This website seeks to promote the apologetical approach of Charles Hodge, A. A. Hodge, B. B. Warfield, and J. Gresham Machen typically referred to as the "tradition of Old Princeton," or as "Old School Presbyterianism." many articles, links, and papers that promote Warfield's apologetical approach as time permits. Not all the links or articles will be from Warfield's rigorous Calvinism, which we equally share, but they will attempt to give a reasonable argument for the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3).

    Very helpful-looking sites. I haven't read all the Warfield site, but I noticed it describes the Princeton apologetic as "Common Sense" apologetics. Is this the same basic type of apologetics that is taught by R.C. Sproul, i.e. "Classical" apologetics?

    Knight of the Living God: Reformed Theology & Apologetics

    Meredith Kline's work did more to destroy the implementation and remembrance of God's law in this country among Presbyterians than we want to remember. It really ought to be the work of Dr. Greg Bahnsen that is noted as exceptional and worth remembering instead of Kline.


    Kline and Bahnsen ... well it doesn't have to be an either/ or thing ... remeberance can be both/and. Each of these nen have e aspects that are controversial, but their contributions have both been important. Bahnsen especially to apologetics and Kline in understanding aspects of Covenant Theology.

    What you say about the law being forgotten could be spoken of with regard to the gospel and many reconstructionists. It appears that reconstructionism/theonomy and Federal Vision often go together. They don't have to of course. So I suppose one potentially hurts the law and the other the gospel. But of course, who knows where Bahnsen would have stood on this issue.

    Of course, one need not be a reconstructionist to honor God's law. God is sovereign ... and there are many good things happening in presbyterianism today that is quite apart from reconstructionism.
