Irenaeus was perhaps the most important and influential theologian of early Christianity. He defended against attacks by Gnosticism and Marcionism, he was the first to recognize most of the texts that would form the canon as it is known today, and he developed a robust understanding of Scripture...
The Puritan Board
I originally sent this question to a moderator who suggested I start a thread asking the PB community. So here goes:
What is the time limit for editing a post? Do you think that time limits are a good feature? On at least one occasion I saw a typo I made, but it was too late to fix it. On another occasion on the old system, I deleted a post after a period of time, that upon reflection I...
For most of my life, I have been in churches that have practiced some form of open communion - in other words, there was very little said about who could or couldn't take communion, except for the admonition to search your hearts and confess your sins lest you take communion in an unworthy manner with all the attendant consequences.

I'll have the money in about two months (taxes). What do you recommend? I have a new KJV already and the Puritan Hard Drive.

But, The Westminster Standards, in The Directory for Family Worship it states:...
Quick show of hands (please participate), I initially didn't really have a path to get Blogs back into the forum because Xenforo doesn't support Blogs out of the box. I have a robust addon I can add to bring back that functionality.
Blogs sort of fizzled out but we had a few more active users. In light of the fact that we have AMS, do you think we really need Blogs? Can I get a show of...
NOTE: Movie (Arrival) spoilers below!!!
In the movie the main character, Louise Banks, comes to experience time non-linearly. She doesn't move back and forward through time but can view it when she wills, merely because an alien language allowed her to think in that way. It is shown that one of the effects of an event has its cause in the future, but for Louise Banks there...
