Gradual Reformation Intolerable – by C. Matthew McMahon and Anthony Burgess (1600-1663)


Is there a need for a biblical reformation today? The answer on that is a Bible-thumping YES! But should it happen slowly and gradually? Was this the method Christ used in preaching, or the Reformers? McMahon and Burgess team up to give the thoughtful Christian a biblical foundation to promote current reformation in their church and their homes.

How hard is it to encourage the people of God toward biblical Reformation and actually see it occur? Is there room for a new Reformation today? What should Christians think concerning revival today and reforming in the power of the Gospel? Could there actually be a present day “biblical reformation”?

In the first part of the work, beginning with Leviticus 26:23-24, McMahon demonstrates that Reformation ought not to be gradual, but immediate. Gospel truth dictates spiritual action and God requires his church to be reformed by him through the power of the transforming word of God. In the second part, Anthony Burgess teaches from Mark 1:2-3, “As it is written in the Prophets, Behold I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make thy paths straight.” He shows that there are many difficulties to hurdle, but there are encouragements to performing biblical Reformation for the glory of God.
