“I have always wondered that the Augsburg Confession contains so full a doctrine about grace, and stops short of conclusions which to me seem necessary” (John M. Brentnall, Just A Talker: Sayings of John (‘Rabbi’) Duncan, p. 53).
A “felicitous inconsistency,” perhaps? Or maybe, just maybe, said confession articulates a “grace” that is NOT truly grace (cf. Romans 11:6)? Too simplistic of an answer, eh, J-Dunc?
“I am ashamed to confess that once I declared my belief in the [Westminster] Confession of Faith when I scarcely believed any part of it. This day I have, with my whole heart and with a full faith, declared my belief in it all” (John M. Brentnall, Just A Talker: Sayings of John (‘Rabbi’) Duncan, p. 53).
Interesting. However, no timeline is given about exactly when J-Dunc was Duplicitous Dunc.
