Pietism and confessionalism

with 4 comments

I have enjoyed these three thoughtful posts from Kevin DeYoung on the relationship between confessionalism and pietism (not a label for which I have a particular fondness, but never mind). Although it is written from within the Presybterian debate on the issue, as a confessional Baptist there was a lot that I thought was wise and helpful. Worth checking out.

PS Kevin sums up the to-ing and fro-ing (think what that might sound like without helpful hyphens!) here.

  1. […] Pietism and confessionalism (eardstapa.wordpress.com) […]

  2. The label is extremely unhelpful, not just because it is so vague, but because it implies you can be ‘confessional’ without being ‘pious,’ which is an alien concept in the Confession itself.
