It is increasingly clear to me that there is clear water between evangelicalism and reformationism.
If we define a religion by its practice as well as its belief system, the differences become more and more obvious. The purpose of a Reformed Church service is to diligently make use of the ordained means of grace, namely, the sacraments, the word, and prayer.
These three things working together are the means of communicating to Christians the saving benefits.
Ordinarily, then, partaking regularly of the bread and wine within the context of the proclaimed word and prayer, is the usual means of continuing to receive the blessings of justification, the Holy Spirit, regeneration, assurance of our election and salvation and so on.
Evangelicalism, whether of the older or modern types, refuses to allow a place for the sacraments as effectively communicating and transferring justification. In an evangelical service communion is only an occasion to remember the cross and its benefits.
(Is this a new evangelical sola?)
This is without doubt an import from the Baptistic mentality, and it is biblically and historically speaking a heresy. In evangelicalism the sole means of grace is the word read and preached, especially the word preached. Hence the centrality of the sermon, and the emergence of the cult of the preacher. Hence, also, the relative unimportance of prayer in an evangelical service.
To an evangelical a reformed service looks and sounds, to an extent, Roman Catholic. The heretical Anabaptists said exactly the same thing back in the day. Thus we must not give any weight to that objection.
