An Introduction to Authentic Christianity

American Vision has just published a five-volume commentary entitled Authentic Christianity. It is an explanation and application of the Westminster Larger Catechism and of the Reformed Faith of which that catechism is its most mature representation.

The reason for its title – Authentic Christianity – is to identify biblical and historical Christianity in its purest human expression in contrast to all the counterfeit and synthetic expressions of the Christian Faith that swirl around us today, deceiving so many.

The apostle Paul wrote that the church of the living God is the pillar and support of the truth making her not only the proclaimer and teacher of the truth, but also the guardian and custodian of the truth. Therefore he gives her this exhortation: …guard the treasure [of revealed truth] that has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called knowledge, which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith. This commentary is an attempt to do just that and to show generations to come that people in the twenty-first century believed the faith of our fathers.
