True Christianity - Edwards

"...the religion that Christ taught consisted mainly in true piety of heart and life. Indeed, the custom of the present day has called something else the religion of Christ besides this: 'tis customary to call the doctrines of Christianity the Christian religion." Jonathan Edwards on True Christianity, 130.

I recently heard a brother state that if someone in our day professes to believe the 5 solas they are deemed o.k., almost regardless of anything else. It looks like Edwards dealt with a similar problem. It's quotes like this that make it odd that Edwards is so popular. You wonder if anyone is actually reading him!
