Goodloe, James C.

John Calvin on the Unity and Truthfulness of the Church by James C, Goodloe, Ph.D Goodloe also touches on two points in Calvin that may have particular relevance today. The first is Calvin’s lack of confidence in provincial councils of the church, which may be the closest equivalent to our contemporary denominations.  The second point is Calvin’s insistence that a church must have a proper constitution to order its internal life. Goodloe raises the question, suggested by recent actions of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly, as to whether that denomination still has a governing constitution.Spring 2016 Theology Matters Pg. 1
