I love my neighbors very much. I pray for them on a regular basis. I also despise false teaching and pray that my neighbors would escape from the clutches of people who would turn them into merchandise (2 Pet. 2:3). In light of this, I've come up with a series of questions to help me think through different conversations in which I may well find myself. I'd love to hear some responses.
Greetings. I used to be semi-involved in Facebook Reformed groups but having left that platform I've missed discussions with like-minded believers online. At present my wife and I are members of Heritage Reformed Baptist Church in North Canton, Ohio and I'm a student at Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary out of Owensboro, KY with a call-to-ministry from the elders of my church.
1. When God says that when they eat f the fruit they will "die". He didnt mean immediate physical death, but he meant physical death at a later period of time. Is that right? Did he also mean a spiritual death/hell?
2. When Eve ate of the fruit from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil because it would "make one wise", wasnt that actually true: that it actually did make her more "wise"...
I see in another post someone posted a footnote from Sam Waldron's "revised and corrected" edition of his Modern Exposition of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith. Is there much change in this edition compared with previous editions? I am happy with my 3rd edition but unsure if I should get the recent edition. Thanks.
I was raised by my grandfather, Dr. Jay Wimberly, a Reformed Baptist preacher in north and central Florida. So when I say that by the time I entered the Army I was living deceived by a prosperity gospel, it should come as a surprise to most.
However, when I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in 2005, the false prosperity gospel quickly failed me when a roadside bomb killed five from my unit one month...
How does 1689 Federalism's understanding of Covenant Theology, which they admit is different than that of 'vanilla' Confessional Baptists, work it's way out in practice? How would a 1689 Federalist church operate/worship differently than say, Dr. Waldron's church, for example?
My intent isn't to start an argument so I'm asking only Presbyterians to answer for this. Wanting to know the historic position here. Reading Calvin, I think he basically says this is understood comparatively; IE, compared with OT Israel, in which at times very few were actually saved, in the new covenant dispensation there will be an overwhelmingly greater figure of those who truly...
Hello there brethren-
As I have been studying and reading about exclusive psalmody, I have learned that some, today and in the past (i.e. John Kennedy of Dingwall), advocate and defend exclusive psalmody only in public worship. Does anyone here hold to this position? If so, may you please explain it to me?
What about family worship? Some are adamant that Psalms are only to be sung in every...
