An Institutional Church with an Evangelical Heart

Wilson makes some great warnings that those of us who commune baptized children.  If you want to have dead formalism, communing children is one good way to get there (AC, p35).  Formalism of all types is an easy way to hide hearts from people and to deaden souls from the need of true, evangelical faith.

What we need is strong, institutional churches, with a well articulated, biblically founded liturgy, robust in the Word and sacraments, in singing the Psalms and preaching that thunders.  This liturgy should regularly be studied and considered and listened to.  We need a Savior, Jesus alone is that Savior, He always was and always will be, and faith in Christ is the only way to have access to that salvation.
