What Sets the 1646 Baptist Confession Apart. Do You Have Jewish DNA?
The 1646 First London Baptist Confession of Faith speaks the Truth as it is in Christ. It is now of particular interest to those with Ashkenazi Jewish DNA, or lineage, or Sephardic tradition, or middle east Mizrahi origin. The Gentiles in this confession are teaching those with ancient connections to the Hebrews of old the truth about Christ. And since Romans 11 has opened up the door for all these people, if only God calls them by divine election, it is worth reading this most important of many important sections of the Confession:
The preaching of the gospel to the conversion of sinners, is absolutely free; no way requiring as absolutely necessary, any qualifications, preparations, or terrors of the law, or preceding ministry of the law, but only and alone the naked soul, a sinner and ungodly, to receive Christ crucified, dead and buried, and risen again; who is made a prince and a Savior for such sinners as through the gospel shall be brought to believe on Him.
John 3:14,15, 1:12; Isa. 55:1; John 7:37; 1 Tim. 1:15; Rom. 4:5, 5:8; Acts 5:30,31, 2:36, 1 Cor. 1:22,24.
Law, or guilt by law has no place in this confession and has no place in Christ!
The entire Confession is biblical as far as I can understand. It is wonderful. Most Baptists are not following it, and it is too late for the Gentiles (Luke 21:24)! But we thank those Gentiles for their work in standing for the gospel salvation back in 1646, apart from the law which was powerless (Romans 8:3).
