I was reading Martyn Lloyd Jones today & he mentions that in the 18 Century that churches were going astray....since I dont know just exactly what Arianism is, could someone advise? Thanks Below is an excerpt from Dr. Jones's writings as a frame of reference. He does not explain this but drops the bomb & moves swiftly on. What about the other Churches? Presbyterianism had ceased to be. There had been a Presbyterianism in England, but it had become Arian in its doctrine. The Westminster Confession of Faith does not guarantee that you cannot go wrong doctrinally. It was the Presbyterians who went most astray and became guilty of Arianism, and Presbyterianism literally died. The Presbyterian Church of England which we have today is something quite new which only started in the last century. As regards Congregationalism, these Arian tendencies for a while even affected people like Isaac Watts and Philip Doddridge. The Congregationalists had also been affected by the Hyper-Calvinism, to which reference has been made, and we have been reminded also that among the Baptists there was this Hyper-Calvinistic teaching.
