The Second Helvetic Confession of Faith
By Heinrich Bullinger

The word “Helvetic” is Latin for “Swiss.” The Second Helvetic Confession of Faith was written by Heinrich Bullinger, a minister of the church in Zurich, in the 16th Century. The 30 chapter Helvetic (Swiss) Confession of Faith, by Heinrich Bullinger, is a worthwhile read for anyone seeking to understand the major doctrine among Protestant Christians. Little has changed on core doctrinal positions, particularly among evangelical denominations.

However, much has changed on minor areas resulting in more Protestant denominations today. Major areas that have changed worth noting are on gender and on dealing with heresy. Gender bias was still high affecting the role of women in the church (and in society). On heresy you’ll notice that the Confession argues that heresy should be punished like murder or treason. This was during a time of autocratic rule were politics and culture severely sanctioned freedom of expression. The church easily fell into this web. Not to mention other atrocities committed in the name of God. But there is much to learn from people whom God used to steer the church to its present state. Their sincere sacrifices and labor for the gospel are still bearing fruit today.
