Cross-Examination: A Biblical Standard for Civil Law

Each month the "Cross-Examination" column presents a summary statement of a Reformed and Reconstructionist conviction in theology or ethics, and then offers brief answers to common questions, objections or confusions which people have about that belief. Send issues or questions you would like addressed by Dr. Bahnsen to the editor.

The finest expression of the theology of God's inspired word - its "pattern of sound words" - can be found in the masterful, systematic expression of Reformed theology known as the "Westminster Confession of Faith." This year marks the 350th anniversary of the English Parliament's convening of 121 godly theologians from the entire realm (and later, eight commissioners from Scotland) to the Westminster Assembly.
