R. C. Sproul on The Manhattan Declaration
By now, most of our readers will be very much aware of the recently released Manhattan Declaration. Dr. R. C. Sproul has provided a written response here. To quote Dr. Sproul, "The Manhattan Declaration confuses common grace and special grace by combining them. While I would march with the bishop of Rome and an Orthodox prelate to resist the slaughter of innocents in the womb, I could never ground that cobelligerency on the assumption that we share a common faith and a unified understanding of the gospel." I wholeheartedly agree with Sproul's sentiments, and for the exact same reasons stated in his article, will not be adding my signature to the Manhattan Declaration. - Pastor John Samson, King's Church, Phoenix, Arizona.
