Greetings PB brethren, I'm doing research on Ch. 9 (paragraphs 1-3,5) of the 1689 for a writing project, and in comparing LBC to WCF, I noticed that there are some minor differences in both verbiage and Scripture proofs utilized. Here are the differences: Para. 1: LBC adds verbiage of "and power of acting upon choice" and deletes prooftexts Isa 7.11-12, Jn 5.40, Jas 4.7. Para. 2: LBC verbiage identical; and deletes prooftexts Gen 1.26,31, Col 3.10, Gen 2.16-17. Para. 3: LBC verbiage identical; and deletes prooftexts Rom 3.9-10,12,23, Jn 6.44-45, Jn 3.3,5-6, 1 Cor 2.14, Tit 3.3-5 (WCF also moves Eph 2.1-5 to just after "dead in sin" as their #6, and adds Col 2.13). Para. 5: LBC deletes "do"; and deletes prooftext Heb 12.23. My question is: why the deletions and additions, other than normal editing processes? Can anyone here point me to something explaining the rationale? Play nice here; don't be snarky and say things like, "It's because Baptists aren't as biblical," etc. Ha ha!
