The “Canons of Dort” are the 3rd confessional document within our CRCNA’s 3 Forms of Unity.
But sadly, the Canons are often seen as the lone ugly step-sister amongst the two Cinderellas of the Heidelberg Catechism and the Belgic Confession.
This is tragic.
The Canons of Dort are often maligned as a “prickly” or “uncomfortable” document, but the reality is that such claims couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Not too long ago I led a Men’s Bible Study at my church focused on the Canons of Dort, and we all found the experience to be very uplifting and comforting!
Below is a link to the worksheets that we used to guide our reading and discussions. I would encourage everyone in the CRCNA or similar denominations to put the Canons to the test. Read them for yourselves! Dive in and discover just how Biblically-based but also encouraging the Canons of Dort actually are.
And please, share this resource with others in your church!
It's meant to be a no-prep, easy to facilitate guide for reading and discussing this confession.
This incredible confession is worthy of our time because it proclaims clearly and in detail the beauty of Christ’s gospel!
