“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering” (Hebrews 10:23)
The Presbyterian Church in Scotland has long associated itself with a Confession of Faith as its...
The Puritan Board
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...
Members, as well as moderators and administrators (hereafter moderators), often get keenly involved in topics that cross some predetermined lines of conduct for the board. This is simply our human nature, but rather than simply have loose moderating or a free for all that simply allows indiscreet, contentious and unedifying conduct to go on, the PB evolved to and has been for some years a...
I recently read an article that had made an argument (made many times by others) that goes something like this:
"The EP proponents singing metrical Psalms in English are not singing the inspired Psalms, because they are not singing the original Hebrew."
So, I decided to put this in perspective.
"The bible proponents reading The Bible in English are not reading the inspired Bible, because...
What do I make of the statements, ""Faith was not the condition of the Mosaic Covenant"?
The fuller quote by a defender of 1689 Federalism is:
"...faith was not the condition of the MC. In fact, Paul contrast the difference between faith and works in Romans 10. The MC said do and live while they NC says believe and live.
No member of the CoG can be eternally condemned as a covenant breaker...
A pretty difficult personal problem here:
I am leaving southern West Virginia in the fall of 2018 to attend Westminster (about an 8 hour drive). However, at that time the woman I intend to marry would still have one more year left until she completes her undergrad in education. If she were to remain in WV during that year, she would come out of college with absolutely no debt. However, if she...
