    The problem with this document is less about what it says and more so what it does not say. How can you expect to have any kind of substantial or meaningful unity in truth with this document? It is no surprise that the Anglican church fell apart

    The Westminster Confession for juniors! In some ways, I actually think it is a bit better. For instance, it is a shame the WCF does not have the article expressly re-affirming the early creeds. On other issues, however, the WCF is a marked improvement.

    Some interesting stuff. All in all its pretty weak with no direct scripture referenced.

Also, rather obviously as a citizen of the United States, I assume church councils may be held apart from the call of the monarchy which may have the concession for already present in the article regarding accommodations for the church order outside of the United Kingdom. I have not read 1 & 2 Esdras, which the Articles regard as part of the Old Testament Canon, and I find it rather strange that the specific canonical New Testament books are not named but receive a blanket statement for their general acceptance only after listing the specific apocryphal books considered worthy of personal study without ascribing the same level of authority as Holy Scripture to them. Apart from these few concerns, the 39 Articles were a delightful read and an accurate reflection of the Christian faith.
