Jerry,
When I speak of church father, I am speaking about men of biblical faith. These are mainly from the early church prior to it's Constantinian corruption into the RCC. There is a good book out called 'A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs,' by David W. Bercot. He basically goes to the post-Apostolic fathers, men lead to the Lord by the Apostles, and their converts, and catalogs comments they made of different issues. Though, clearly, it is not scripture, it is a neat window into the atmosphere of the early church.

Thanks for clearing that up. But using that expression many will think your referring back to the early RCC so called church fathers.



Great post...PreacherBen. :thumb Yes, there is a HUGE difference when referring to the "church fathers" as Pastor Jerry said. Those of "Biblical faith" do give a glance into the "converts" who were a part of the early Christian church, though. :-)
