The sixteenth-century Reformers fought a battle on two fronts. They adamantly objected to the two-source doctrine of Rome that was being used to justify all kinds of un-Scriptural doctrines and practices. But they objected just as strongly to the individualistic and autonomous doctrine of the radical Anabaptists. If we are to follow in their footsteps, we too must continue the battle on both fronts. We must reject ecclesiastical tyranny, but we also must reject ecclesiastical anarchy. ■
