    So this would be like when the WCF states Sacrament, while the LBCF would see it in terms of an Ordinance? Using different terms, but with similar vested meanings still intended in them?

    "The Savoy Declaration is merely a modification of the Westminster Confession to suit the Congregational polity.”

    The WCF and the LBCF intend the same things by the terms sacrament/ordinance. As Sean pointed out, the LBCF change to ordinance was not a doctrinal difference but rather a concession in terms of phrasing and emphasis.

    Which is my point - the LBCF maintains the same doctrine of the supper as the SD. Hence, also for the WCF.

    Jonathan,
    I concede. There are no true differences in either of the three mentioned confessions on the LS.
