Confessional Nitty Gritty: Animus Imponentis

Animus imponentis means, “the spirit of adopting,” the the OPC Presbytery of Northern California and Nevada is holding a conference in February ’09 to talk about it (HT: Creed or Chaos). This is an important topic. We need confessions and they need to serve as boundaries but they must also be received and adopted by ecclesiastical bodies. The last part of that equation doesn’t get enough attention. Wait for it….this topic is discussed, however, in Recovering the Reformed Confession. You knew it was coming.
