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
I am curious to learn what other PBers think about parachurch organizations. Specifically, do you think Christians, either individually or as a local church, should be supporting them with their time and/or finances?
I don't doubt that many do great work supporting the work of the Church; however, I've grown concerned about the legitimacy of them and fear they siphon...
Would anyone who has Logos or a similar program be willing to search for Matthew 15:21-28 for me. Im looking to get a list of Reformed authors who have commented on this passage or parts of this passage. Would really like to find out what Puritans if any have written on this passage. Ive been going through my books one by one and looking at the scripture indexes and searching individual ebooks...
Hey everyone. I keep seeing the presbyterian conclusions of Genesis 17, but I come from a Baptist background and I can't help see the Baptist interpretation of that text. What I see is:
17:4 God made a covenant WITH ABRAHAM, making Abraham the covenant head and thus it was not the covenant of Grace.
17:6 National language begins to emerge
17:7 "I WILL establish my covenant between me and...
Over the past several years I've noticed a trend in my community where churches are increasingly involved in community service type projects in my area. Things like leaf-raking, picking up trash, landscaping, job skill programs, sports camps, etc. Typically everyone shows up to the event with matching t-shirts with something catchy like "love your city" emblazoned on it.
I'm curious; is this considered the point at which the apostles received Christian Baptism, or was it under John the Baptist?
I have been studying the Image of God for quite awhile. The PRCA also has much good resources about it. Luther's writings about this are particularity fascinating too.
Genesis 9:6 can mean that God is referring to when He created "Man" in His image, which is our first parents. It is then memorialized because at the fall the image was completely lost.
But when we look upon fallen man we...
I was wondering if anyone interprets this the same way I do: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/thabiti-anyabwile/an-evangel-and-an-ethic/.
As I understand it, according to Thabiti, we are all to assume responsibility for what past generations did no matter what current conditions are. If this is his argument, it is anti-gospel. We can...
What volumes would people recommend as an introduction to early church writings? Has anyone read any of the Desert Fathers? There's a volume of their writings by Penguin (I think). Are these guys to be avoided because they are the proto-monks or is there good stuff in them?
