David Scott on James Renwick as an example of consistency

Reformed Covenanter

It was this practical consistency of James Renwick and the few other faithful witnesses associated with him, that was blessed by the Head of the church as the means of overturning one of the most cruel governments that ever oppressed a civilized people. Though holding generally the same principles with this noble martyr, the great part of the nation truckled and wavered in their practice, while he continued steadfast and consistent, maintaining a testimony as well by his practice as by the principles which he held, till the power of the persecutor was broken, and the throne of the Stuarts tottered on its base!

David Scott, Distinctive principles of the Reformed Presbyterian Church (Albany, 1841), p. 324.
