NGTT DEEL 46 NOMMERS 3 & 4 SEPTEMBER & DESEMBER 2005
This article departs from the viewpoint that the Dordt reformed tradition regards confessions as documents of agreement in the forming of a denomination between congregations. It identifies four requirements for formulas to be confessions: it should be scriptural, it should formulate key issues of faith, it should not repeat what has already been said in existing confessions and it should enjoy a broader ecumenical approval. Confessions can only have authority on the issues they speak on if it is formulated according to the Bible. The author applies these findings to the South African born Confession of Belhar (1986) and concludes that it can not stand up to every requirement.
