May 2, 1559
On May 2, 1559 John Knox returned to Scotland after several years on the Continent studying and writing. He helped lead the Scottish Reformation and was part of the group which later drew up the Scots Confession, which Parliament approved in 1560.
I’m not sure I’d want to have Canadian parliament “approve” our statement of faith!
Here’s a quote from Knox worth pondering…..
“The testimony of scripture is so plain that to add anything were superfluous, were it not that the world is almost now come to that blindness, that whatsoever pleases not the princes and the multitude, the same is rejected as doctrine newly forged, and is condemned for heresy.” (The First Blast of the Trumpet)
Wonder what he would write today? Praise God for the perspicuity of Scripture!
