Isn’t it true that Confessional Text Advocates are nothing more than “Textual Traditionalists”?
No. People who claim this about our position are usually misinformed or following someone who uses this term to de-legitimize our position. It’s the equivalent of calling the pro-life position anti-choice.
The idea for this argument is that we only hold our position because of tradition and especially because it was held by the Reformers. However that is not our argument.
We hold our position because we agree with the EXEGETICAL ARGUMENTS for the position as espoused by the Reformers. This is a very important distinction. To accuse our position of being held because of traditionalism is the equivalent of accusing someone of holding to the Doctrine of the Trinity due to traditionalism.
