    Rev. Angus Stewart debates EP with Rev. Ivan Foster In Ireland

    Someone captured a debate on EP between Rev. Angus Stewart of the Covenant Protestant Reformed Church Ballymena and the Rev. Ivan Foster of the Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church (Uslter.)

    The Debate seemed civil enough to post.

    If anyone does watch the debate in its entirety I would like to hear your thoughts.

    I have not seen the debate, but I always thought it strange (living in Grand Rapids, MI for 12 years) that ProtRef Churches sing the psalms but are not RPW. They are mere traditionalists when it comes to the church's song book.

    Strange to me.

    While the PRC in Grand Rapids enjoy a fellowship with those in Ulster, they are not the same denomination... this I believe is cleared up as it is brought up in the debate.

    I believe this is the same debate on audio here in its entirety.

    This is great starting point for those interested in learning more about the doctrinal position of the mean ol' exclusive Psalmody folk.

    Of course I would say the EP side wins hands down. Rev. Angus Stewart does a great job of presenting the basic principles of worship.

    Actually, the PRCA is in full communion with the CPRC, as we are officially sister churches. The only differences are those to a certain extent dictated by history and culture. The PRCA, due to its continental (Dutch) roots, is following the Church Order of Dordt. The CPRC is closer to the Presbyterian practices in church polity. Both however subscribe to the 3 forms of unity.

    Bert thank you for clearing that up. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
    I was obviously throughly confused. What is that form of Church Government called?

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.
