On Friday mornings at 5:30am we read through books by faithful Christians through from church history. We are currently reading through Volume 11 of Thomas Goodwin’s Works, “Of the Constitution, Right Order, and Government of the Churches of Christ.”
Todays reading was from Chapters 3-4a
Chapter 3: “That Christ hath, by his own institution, established order, discipline, and government of his churches, proved by several arguments.”
Chapter 4a: “What power spiritual or ecclesiastical is. – Of the nature of a divine institution, – How the knowledge of divine institutions is derived to us, that we may be assured what are truly and really such.”
Goodwin, Thomas The Government of the Churches of Christ in The Works of Thomas Goodwin, Vol. 11 (Lafayette: Sovereign Grace Publishers, Inc., 2000), 15-26.
*Chapter 4 is listed as “4a” above to indicate that I only began reading this chapter. I plan to continue in chapter four next week.
