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....

I did a bit of reading but wasn't really finding what I was looking for.
In relationship to the Trinity, why would you say Jesus is called the Son, and not another name like the brother? Is it the conception by the Spirit and woman that determined the name Son from all eternity? Is it simply the roles that determine the titles?
We have the Father, Son and Spirit. But if God chose to,...
Has anyone else noticed this tendency on the part of people who should know better? (For any newcomers who may be puzzled by this idea, see Westminster Larger Catechism questions 150 and 151 and their proof texts.)
It seems to me that it is reaching almost epidemic proportions among people who claim to be Reformed if my internet reading is any indication. One person who seems to deny this...

Do you need to have undertaken 5 to 7+ years of theological higher education to begin a career as a lecturer at seminary/university? With the rising costs of theological education, and with there being few jobs out there for theological graduates, it can often feel like the costs of such...

What is a pretty sound hymnal? I'm hearing a lot about a "Trinity Hymnal" these days. Is that one good? I'm looking at getting another one.
What is your favorite...
I recognize this is an emotional topic for many, especially those who "make their living off the gospel" as many authors put it. I have been reading quite a bit in favor of bi-vocational ministry lately and wanted to ask why, in an over-saturated ministry environment we tolerate funding so many full-time pastors, let alone church staffs (who tend to be the spouses of "influencers". deacons, or...
Does anyone have (or can you point me to) the paper by Daniel Hyde on Anointing the Sick with Oil as referenced in this old (2008) PB thread? Excerpts are in the thread but no attachment. Thanks!
I’ve just started reading Harold Senkbeil’s The Care of Souls. So far, I am very impressed. A Lutheran minister, Senkbeil had been pestered for years to write this book, since he has given a lot of advice to ministers. It was advice of the sort that saves ministries. The point I want to...
