This article originally appeared on my blog (Here). “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45) Service is not a uniquely Christian concept. The language of service is something engrained throughout society....
The Puritan Board
although i have been a member for nearly five years, this is my 1st post.
i was led to 'rediscover' this forum and this would seem one of the few places in cyberspace which will not either kick me out or force me to resign by virtue of me being a Christian - praise the Lord!
at least two prior forums forced me to remove my avatar, so i had to remove myself as it is my identity, for i can...
I found this observation on the differences between the two parties of Covenanters (Resolutioners and Protestors) by the younger Thomas McCrie to be decidedly odd. What do you make of it?
