Chapter forty-five is a detailed examination of Hodge’s views on the Church universal. As denominations competed for members and new religious traditions arose on the American landscape, a wide array of Protestants turned their attention to defining the true nation of Christ’s earthly Church and who its members might be. Hodge believed that form did not so much define the Church as did people who were filled with the Holy Spirit. He also spoke against infant damnation and in favor of the use of liturgies in church services.
