Originally appeared on my blog, Hebridean Outpost. “The wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked.” (Isaiah 57:20-21) The Isle of Lewis is steeped in history, heritage and distinctiveness. It may...

What is to be made of Presumptive Regeneration (PR), which has become so popular in the modern, Reformed Church?
Jesus told Nicodemus, who was a teacher in Israel and externally in the Covenant in good standing, “You must be born again.” (Jn. 3:7)

I have been increasing my level of scripture reading, praying and memorization in response to the realization that my sanctification, such as it was, had slipped ... a lot.

Modern Reformation article by Horton freely available for the next three weeks:
"A cursory comparison of the indices of any primary or secondary work on Eastern Orthodoxy and evangelicalism exposes an interesting contrast—in the Eastern Orthodox index, one will find such entries as...
I became a Christian approximately three years ago. My parents are not Christians nor do they profess the faith in any way. However, when I was an infant I was baptized in the United Church of Canada. They did this presumably out of superstition or tradition, clearly not understanding the meaning. I also firmly hold to paedobaptism.

Some of you know that I am in pursuit of the ministry. I have applied to be a candidate for the ministry in my denomination (The Free Church of Scotland [Continuing]), and I am required to travel to Scotland this March to meet with our Training of the Ministry and Admissions Committee.
I am elated at the opportunity to visit Scotland! However, this will be my first time traveling out of the...
