I quoted Samuel Rutherford in my last post. He was a Scottish Presbyterian, a Puritan. He lived in the 1600’s, was put in prison at St. Andrews for his beliefs. He later helped to write the Westminister Confession of Faith, the statement of faith still used today by the Presbyterian Church In America (PCA). He is a good example of how “Puritan” has been wrongly protrayed, and even slandered, by modern historians as prudish hypocrites. Samuel Rutherford appears to have been a kind, gentle man who loved the Lord Jesus Christ and served his church. I love his letters from prison, “The Loveliness of Christ>” Go back to the original sources and read the Puritans for yourself at www.banneroftruth.org.
