Westminster Standards In Modern English APK

Rating: 0.00 (Votes: 0)

The Westminster Standards was originally drawn up by the Westminster Assembly in 1643-1653.

It contained the Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the 196 questions of the Larger Catechism and 109 questions of the Shorter, the Directory for Public Worship of God, the Directory for Family Worship, and the Form of Presbyterial Church Government.

The aim of this modern English revision, released in book form in 2017 and digitally on the play store in 2019, was simply to preserve the original integrity of these documents and their proof-texts through the light editorial changes to remove the seventeenth and eighteenth-century English and to insert the common English used today. No doctrinal changes have been introduced. The numbers of people involved in proofreading, editing, formatting and encouragement in this project are more than it is possible to list.

This book includes the modern English revisions of the Westminster Standards, the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Definition of Chalcedon. Also included are seven essays written by recognised church ministers who have sought to include the primary emphases that underlie the Standards. The seven essay titles are:

- Extraordinary Providences of an Enduring Standard (Richard D. PHill's, Senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC (part of the Presbyterian Church of America)).
- The Westminster Standards in the Making: Stanley Gower, A Westminster Divine (Kevin J. Bidwell Minister of Sheffield Presbyterian Church (part of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of England and Wales)).
- The Westminster Standards and Public Worship (David E. Gilbert, minister of Grace Presbyterian Church, Douglasville, GA (part of the Presbyterian Church of America)).
- The Westminster Standards and the Christian Sabbath (George Swinnock (1627-1673), English Nonconformist minister).
- The Westminster Standards and the Sacraments (Andy J. Young, church planting minister of Oxford Evangelical Presbyterian Church, part of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of England and Wales).
- The Westminster Standards and Family Worship (Chad T. Bailey, assistant minister at Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC).
- The Westminster Standards and Church Government (Guy Prentiss Waters, associate professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS).

Our desire is that future generations will continue to enjoy the fruit of the labours of the Westminster Assembly, especially that preserved through the Westminster Standards. Such hope for the furtherance of Bible doctrine is anticipated in Psalm 22:30-31: Posterity shall serve him; it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation; they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it.
