    But how much on the internet and in the media arises from a sordid desire to peer into the windows of other people's lives?...[continued here]

    While Roman Catholics and Mainline churches continue their decades-long decline in numbers, God has sustained the broader Evangelical movement.

    The newest Pew Research Center's study, "America's Changing Religious Landscape," is being widely advertised as evidence of a continued decline of American Christianity. But hidden within the depths of the study there was good news for the Evangelical church which "now have a total of about 62 million adult adherents" or ...

    The promised new declaration of Scott Brown's National Center for Family Integrated Churches (NCFIC) is here. But why should the average conservative Christian care?

  4. Politically incorrect heroes for Black History Month

    In my naivete, I thought only the secular school sponsors ranted against home education.

    I discovered that Christians could be against homeschooling. A professor of theology wrote a book about Christian education and inserted a swipe or two against homeschooling. It was the first argument I ever read that defended church schools as the only viable option.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
