Was Rev. Dr. Andrew Murray — South Africa's best-known man of God — a consistent Calvinist? Or was he an incipient Pentecostalist?
Murray was fully committed to the Classic Calvinist doctrine of imputed justification as contained in the Heidelberg Catechism — which he constantly championed. He concentrated, however, especially on its Third Section — on how, after being justified, we should show our gratitude. He rightly believed this should be done — in terms of the (much neglected) doctrine of sanctification.
Said he: “In all our thoughts on God, we look at Him in a twofold light — either as dwelling above us and outside of us [as] Creator, Lawgiver, and Judge; or as dwelling and working within us, by His Spirit. In redemption, the two aspects find their expression in the two great doctrines of justification and regeneration.
