Blogs Quoting Puritans

I'm doing a series on Jonathan Edward's Resolutions.

He's my favorite, so he's probably the most quoted on my blog.

I cannot fathom the grace Whitfield had toward Wesley. I probably would have broken ties with him and denounced him as a heretic, not said we wouldn't see him in heaven because he would be so far up front praising Jesus! I would like to mirror him in devotion to working for Jesus.

Knox I love. He did the Gideon thing by tossing the mary idol overboard and then challenged her to float. Reminds me of Isaiah 44.10-20: "Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit him nothing? He and his kind will be put to shame; craftsmen are nothing but men.
Let them all come together and take their stand; they will be brought down to terror and infamy. The blacksmith takes a tool and works with it in the coals; he shapes an idol with hammers, he forges it with the might of his arm. He gets hungry and loses his strength; he drinks no water and grows faint. The carpenter measures with a line and makes an outline with a marker; he roughs it out with chisels and marks it with compasses.
He shapes it in the form of man, of man in all his glory, that it may dwell in a shrine. He cut down cedars, or perhaps took a cypress or oak. He let it grow among the trees of the forest, or planted a pine, and the rain made it grow.
It is man's fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it. Half of the wood he burns in the fire; over it he prepares his meal, he roasts his meat and eats his fill. He also warms himself and says, "Ah! I am warm; I see the fire."
From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships.
He prays to it and says, "Save me; you are my god."
They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand. No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say,
"Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate.
Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left?
Shall I bow down to a block of wood?" He feeds on ashes, a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, "Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?"

John Piper has influenced me profoundly. May God cultivate a heart for the nations in me as He has in Piper. I've added you to my blog roll...

Keep blogging for His glory!

I quote John Piper and Mark Dever frequently. I also did a little bit on John Owen recently where I quoted him out of Chapter 5 of his The Mortification of Sin in Believers and I also quoted him from The Death of Death in the Death of Christ when discussing Limited Atonement.

So I guess between the three I probably qualify as quoting Puritans (past and present).

In Christ alone,

Btw - Pretty nice little blog you have here.

I quote Puritans daily. I do not think that Piper would count as one though.

This list is to do with the men that we quote that have a "Puritan Belief" (Old & New) What part of Pipers teachings/doctrines do you think he holds that are not "Puritan".

I have to tell you—it does my heart good to find a blog like yours! I love the Puritans, and you’ve inspired me to write more about them.

(To make it easy for you: http://1sdg.blogspot.com/2005/11/puritans-work-and-you.html and I think this qualifies: http://1sdg.blogspot.com/2005/11/america-and-dutch-hymn.html)

My eldest daughter is reading a book on the Puritans. I think between your blog and her book, it’s a conspiracy to cause me to dive back in!
