REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN HD COLLECTION

Reformed Presbyterians are also known as Covenanters - or sometimes as Covenanted Presbyterians, Protesters, Cameronians or Steelites.

Reformed Presbyterian thought and practice often represents the very pinnacle of Reformed theology.

Reformed Presbyterians make up one of the large groups of authors, ministers and martyrs represented on SWRB's new Puritan Hard Drive.

In fact, in certain ways, the Puritan Hard Drive is a Reformed Presbyterian Hard Drive - though many other groups of Puritan and Reformed authors and ministers are also included in the 12,500+ Reformation resources on the Puritan Hard.

You can now enjoy, read and research thousands of the best Reformation writings and sermons by Reformed Presbyterians, from Reformed Presbyterian history (Rutherford, Cameron, Renwick, et al.) right up to our day (through a contemporary Covenanted, Reformed Presbyterian minister like Greg Price), on SWRB's new Puritan Hard Drive.

For more information about all the great Puritan, Reformation and Presbyterian books, MP3s and videos, the powerful custom SWRB KnowledgeBase search and research software, and the embedded database (containing over 15,000,000 records), contained on the Puritan Hard Drive, please watch the introductory video below.

"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Corinthians 1:10).

Reformed Presbyterian Quotes

JAMES RENWICK REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN MARTYR "The Fathers have not been forgotten; yea they are still highly esteemed for their heroic struggle, by which every son and daughter has a birthright to the richest inheritance of Christian liberty on earth. The persecution lasted twenty eight years, with few 'blinks' to take the chill of horror out of the air. During this time, 18,000 persons, it is said, suffered death, or utmost hardships, for their faith in Jesus Christ. Of this number, 7,000 went into voluntary banishment; 2500 were shipped to distant lands; 800 were outlawed; 680 were killed in battle, or died of their wounds; 500 were murdered in cold blood; 362 were, by form of law executed. We have no account of the number that perished in shipwrecks, or succumbed to the horrors of transportation; nor of hundreds that were shot at sight by the soldiers who ravaged the country for years; nor of the thousands who wasted away through cold, hunger, and exposure in the mountains and moors. Gloomy caves, dripping moss hags, and unmarked graves, were asylums of mercy to multitudes, who are without any earthly record; but their names are written in heaven. Truly Scotland has been consecrated to the Lord. The blood of the martyrs has watered her heather, crimsoned her streams, stained her streets, and bedewed her fields. Scotland is the Lord's. The blood means much." - J.C. McFeeters, Sketches of the Covenanters, 1913, pp. 395-396, as cited in Greg Barrow's important book, The Covenanted Reformation Defended.
 

 

Richard Cameron Reformed Presbyterian Martyr

Richard Cameron Reformed Presbyterian Martyr

"...[H]e [Richard Cameron-GB] went over to Holland in the year of 1678, not knowing what work the Lord had for him there; where he conversed with Mr. M'Ward [Robert McWard-GB] and others of the banished Worthies. In his private conversation and exercise in families, but especially by his public sermon in the Scots Kirk at Rotterdam, he was most refreshing unto many souls. He dwelt mostly upon conversion work, from that text, Matt. 11:28: 'Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest;' which was most satisfying and agreeable to Mr. M'Ward and Mr. Brown [John Brown of Wamphray-GB], and others who had been informed by the Indulged, and those of their persuasion, that he could preach nothing but babble against the Indulgence, cess paying, etc. Here he touched upon none of these things, except in prayer when lamenting over the deplorable case of Scotland by means of defection and tyranny.

About this time Mr. M'Ward said to him, 'Richard the public standard has now fallen in Scotland; and, if I know anything of the mind of the Lord, ye are called to undergo your trials [ordination exam-GB] before us, to go home, and lift the fallen standard, and display it publicly before the whole world. But before you put your hand to it, ye shall go to as many field ministers as ye can find, and give them your hearty invitation to go with you; and if they will not go, go alone, and the Lord will go with you.'

Accordingly he was ordained by Mr. M'Ward, Mr. Brown, and Roleman, a famous Dutch divine. When their hands were lifted up from his [Richard Cameron's-GB] head, Mr. M'Ward continued this still and cried out, 'Behold all ye beholders, here is the head of a faithful minister and servant of Jesus Christ, who shall lose the same for his master's interest, and it shall be set up before sun and moon, in the view of the world.' (John Howie, The Scots Worthies, 1781, p. 423).

On July 22, 1680, faithful Richard Cameron was martyred in Airsmoss. His head and hands cut off and taken to Edinburgh, just as Robert M'Ward had spoken.

Before his murderers committed the barbarous act of publicly displaying his head and hands upon the Netherbow Port, they first had one further act of antichristian cruelty to enact. His father being in prison for the same cause, they carried them [Cameron's head and hands-GB] to him, to add grief unto his former sorrow, and inquired at him if he knew them. Taking his son's head and hands which were very fair - being a man of fair complexion like himself- - he kissed them, and said, 'I know- - I know them; they are my son's - my own dear son's. It is the Lord - good is the will of the Lord, who cannot wrong me nor mine, but hath made goodness and mercy to follow us all our days.' After which, by order of the Council, his head was fixed upon the Netherbow Port, and his hands beside it with the fingers upward. (John Howie, The Scots Worthies, 1781, pp. 428-429). - As cited in The Covenanted Reformation Defended by Greg Barrow, available free online at http://www.reformedpresbytery.org/books/index.html or at http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualNLs/covrefgb.htm - as well as among the free resources included on the Puritan Hard Drive. The Covenanted Reformation Defended by Greg Barrow is the best book ever written, in contemporary, easy-to-read language, defending the classic Covenanter or Reformed Presbyterian (Paleopresbyterian or Protester) position. Greg Barrow's book, The Covenanted Reformation Defended, also includes a myriad of quotations from Reformed Presbyterian source documents (including many rare books from the Second Reformation) with extensive application to our day. If you are interested in the views of the most faithful Reformers and the most biblical Reformed churches (i.e., the very best of classic Reformed theology) The Covenanted Reformation Defended is probably the most useful book you could read.

 

Treasury Scottish Covenant Reformed Presbyterianism "... whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. - Phil. 3:16. David Dickson's last hours were embittered by the recollection of his short-sightedness in adopting these Resolutions. To a lady who visited him on his death-bed he said, 'Madam, I must confess, the Protesters have been truer prophets than we were'... Future events showed the impolicy of these Resolutions. The men who were admitted by them into places of power and trust in the army and state, became, as the Protesters always predicted, the persecutors of the Church. Had the counsels of the Protesters prevailed, the twenty-eight years' persecution might not have existed" - J.C. Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, 1887, p. 120.

Resolutioners and Protesters (Covenanted Presbyterians)

"The Resolutioners and Protesters were two parties formed in the Church of Scotland in consequence of certain resolutions agreed upon by the Commission of the General Assembly, and afterwards approved of by the Assembly itself, with respect to the admission into places of power and trust in the Army and State of such as had by various Acts of Parliament been excluded on account of their malignancy or opposition to the covenant and liberties of the nation, provided they gave satisfaction to the Church. Those who approved of these resolutions were called 'Resolutioners;' those who were opposed to them were called 'Anti-Resolutioners,' or 'Protesters,' from their having given in or adhered to a protestation against the lawfulness of the Assembly held July 1651, at St. Andrews, and adjourned to Dundee, by which these resolutions were ratified. The protestation was given in by the famous Samuel Rutherford, and signed by twenty-two members. Future events showed the impolicy of these resolutions. The men who were admitted by them into places of power and trust in the Army and State became, as the Protesters always predicted, the persecutors of the Church. Had the counsels of the Protesters prevailed, the twenty-eight years' persecution might not have existed." - James Anderson in the Martyrs of the Bass, in "The Bass Rock," p. 181.

 

Greg Price Reformed Presbyterian Minister

"It is our goal to unite the Church of Christ in every land by means of promoting a truly covenanted reformation in accordance with the prayer of our Lord, "That they may be one, even as we are one (John 17:22)... We do not consider the Reformed Presbytery In North America (RPNA-ed.) to be an entirely new entity, but rather a continuation of the one moral person with other covenanted judicatories of the past, and with those faithful witnesses of the Covenanted Reformation known as Protesters and Society People (1650-1742 inclusive). Accordingly, when we refer above to our 'Constitution,' we include within it all the judicial documents comprehended and engaged unto in our 'Six Terms Of Ecclesiastical Communion' - specifically, only those documents which are agreeable to the Word of God, and consistent with our covenanted attainments, as they were formally received and approved by the following covenanted judicatories between the following inclusive dates:

1. The Church Of Scotland (1560-1602, 1638-1649).

2. The Reformed Presbytery In Scotland (1743-1808), and the Synod Of The Reformed Presbyterian Church In Scotland (1809-1821).

3. The Reformed Presbytery In Ireland (1763-1779, 1782-1810), and the Synod Of The Reformed Presbyterian Church In Ireland (1811-1839).

4. The Reformed Presbytery In America (1774 -1778, 1798 -1805, 1840 -1845, 1854 -1887)."

- Reformed Presbytery In North America, (RPNA) Deed Of Constitution.

 

Reformed Presbytery In North America RPNA

The Six Points of the "Terms of Ministerial and Christian Communion in the Reformed Presbyterian Church" as listed at the end of The Act, Declaration, and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation by the Reformed Presbytery, 1761, 1876, (1995, SWRB)

In order both to define our boundaries of fellowship and to make clear the conditions upon which we will unite with others, we desire to be explicit and forthright about our beliefs. These beliefs, otherwise known as our "terms of communion," are as follows:

1. An acknowledgement of the Old and New Testament to be the Word of God, and the alone infallible rule of faith and practice.

2. That the whole doctrine of the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Catechisms, Larger and Shorter, are agreeable unto, and founded upon the Scriptures.

3. That Presbyterial Church Government and manner of worship are alone of divine right and unalterable; and that the most perfect model of these as yet attained, is exhibited in the Form of Government and Directory for Worship, adopted by the Church of Scotland in the Second Reformation.

4. That public, social covenanting is an ordinance of God, obligatory on churches and nations under the New Testament; that the National Covenant and the Solemn League are an exemplification of this divine institution; and that these Deeds are of continued obligation upon the moral person; and in consistency with this, that the Renovation of these Covenants at Auchensaugh, Scotland, 1712 was agreeable to the word of God.

5. An approbation of the faithful contendings of the martyrs of Jesus, especially in Scotland, against Paganism, Popery, Prelacy, Malignancy and Sectarianism; immoral civil governments; Erastian tolerations and persecutions which flow from them; and of the Judicial Testimony emitted by the Reformed Presbytery in North Britain, 1761 with supplements from the Reformed Presbyterian Church; as containing a noble example to be followed, in contending for all divine truth, and in testifying against all corruptions embodied in the constitutions of either churches or states.

6. Practically adorning the doctrine of God our Savior by walking in all His commandments and ordinances blamelessly.

On March 22, 1996, the session of Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton adopted the terms of communion above. Subsequently the Reformed Presbytery in North America (RPNA) was formed on August 5, 2000, and the RPNA Deed of Constitution can be viewed at http://www.swrb.com/Puritan/reformed-presbytery-rpna.htm. These terms of communion are also available in Spanish, French, Dutch, Russian and Ukrainian at http://www.reformedpresbytery.org/toc.html. More of Greg Price's Reformed Presbyterian writings are free online at http://www.reformedpresbytery.org/books/index.html and hundreds of his Covenanter MP3 sermons are available at no charge, compliments of Still Waters Revival Books, at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/13220 - as well as among the free resources included on the Puritan Hard Drive.

 

Pastor Paul Washer Reviews and Recommends
the Puritan Hard Drive

 "In the history of extra-biblical study and research tools there has never before been a resource as useful as the Puritan Hard Drive."

 

Pastor Paul Washer

Pastor Paul Washer, HeartCry Missionary Society


With the Puritan Hard Drive I can now carry one of the largest Puritan and Reformed libraries in my pocket.


No matter where I am, as long as there is some form of power source to operate a computer, I have access to some of the best Puritan and Reformed literature available.


The Puritan Hard Drive is a tremendous blessing. I travel frequently to many parts of the globe. The Puritan Hard Drive allows me to continue my studies on the road with the same depth as when I am seated in my study at home.


The wonderful portability of this massive Puritan library (and remarkable research software) makes the Puritan Hard Drive ideal for missionaries, students, or anyone who needs instant access to the best Reformation study materials in a variety of locations.


There is much more to the Puritan Hard Drive than just convenience, portability and the exceptional quality and extraordinary number of Reformation resources it includes. Even if a minister owned the largest printed Puritan library in the world, he would not be able to properly research the material. However, the KnowledgeBase software on the Puritan Hard Drive provides an effective road map to access the material in ways that are easy-to-use, organized and highly productive. With the click of a button, you can easily do ten hours worth of research in just seconds!


Having the Puritan Hard Drive is like owning the largest Puritan and Reformed Library in the world along with a full time research assistant with his PhD in Puritan Studies from Oxford or Cambridge.


Imagine not only owning the largest Puritan and Reformed library, but having a full-time team of world-class research assistants at your beck and call.


The high level of educational and scholarly functionality, combined with a marvelous library of over 12,500 top Puritan and Reformed resources and an extremely reasonable price, really makes obtaining the Puritan Hard Drive a stewardship issue. It is almost as if God is saying, "Here is a tool that will lead you to more truth faster than ever before. Make the best possible use of it and bring much glory to My Name." (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 5:16).


In the history of extra-biblical study and research tools there has never before been a resource as useful as the Puritan Hard Drive. The immense body of Reformation material (books, MP3s and videos) on the Puritan Hard Drive, along with the phenomenal proprietary software program that is included, makes the Puritan Hard Drive a valuable tool for Reformation in our day.


As a member of the HeartCry Missionary Society, I am witness to the great needs of Christians throughout the globe. Possibly the greatest need is sound Christian literature. Even though many Third World pastors read English, they have very few good books available to them. Even if we could afford to buy each indigenous minister a small library, the cost of shipping would be astronomical.  With the Puritan Hard Drive we can provide pastors throughout the globe with one of the most complete Puritan and Reformed libraries at a fraction of the cost.


The Puritan Hard Drive is also ideal for situations where concealment is a priority in countries which are hostile to the Gospel. The Puritan Hard Drive is the most compact way to smuggle the light of over 12,500 Reformation resources (with powerful study software) into the spiritual darkness of those nations that are in most need of Gospel truth.

DR. JOEL R. BEEKE

Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary


The Puritan Hard Drive is a massive collection of primary Puritan resources, dozens of which are very hard to find anywhere else in the world.

Any lover of Puritan literature, which, more than any other body of literature ever written, powerfully expands our minds, convicts our consciences, allures our hearts, and moves our hands, will find a treasure trove here.

- Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary http://puritanseminary.org/, Author of many important Reformed books (including the must read, Meet the Puritans: With A Guide to Modern Reprints, http://www.heritagebooks.org/products/Meet-the-Puritans.html), Editorial Director at Reformation Heritage Books, Editor of the Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth magazine and Pastor of Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.
