The Works of

Rev. Prof. Dr. F.N. Lee

Rev. Dr. Andrew Murray – Calvinist, or Pentecostalist?

“I preached yesterday (11th April 1881)….   My text was I John 2:6, ‘Abiding in Him, walking like Him.’   Let us bless the Lord, for again permitting me to preach Christ — and [let us] pray that it may henceforth be in the power of the Holy Ghost!'”

Rev. Dr. Andrew Murray the ‘heavenly’ Christian — was at the same time also a ‘down-to-Earth’ Christian Nationalist.   This was the case not only when a young man right after his ordination in 1848, but also in his old age — long after the termination of the Anglo-Boer War in 1902.

Murray played a most significant role in 1852 and again in 1853 at the International Treaty Meetings between Great Britain and first the (Transvaal) South African Republic and later his own land the Orange Free State.   Though himself a British subject — the Cape-born son of a Scottish father (Rev. Andrew Murray Sr.) and a Cape Afrikaner or Boer mother (nee Maria Stegmann) — . Dr. Andrew Murray Jr., himself a South African by birth and by conviction, warmly espoused the cause of his own Boer countrymen, even when that clashed with the interests of Great Britain.
