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 have a friend who attends an RP Presbyterian church who sings exclusive Psalms acapella (without instruments). Says that its aligning to how God commands to be worshiped per the Regulative Principle of Worship. LBC 1689 says Chapter 22, Section 1 says,
1. .... But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God, is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed...
What does "biblical womanhood" entail for a single woman? Biblical womanhood in the context of marriage and motherhood seems relatively straightforward. A woman must submit to her husband, she must attend to her home, and she must raise her children (if she has them). But how is biblical womanhood expressed in the life of a single woman, who has no husband to whom she must submit and no...
I am just after reading this highly intriguing extract from John Edwards wherein he argued against Copernicanism on the basis that it, as with the Romish notion of transubstantiation, was contrary to our senses. What do you make of this argument and how would you argue against it from a Common Sense Realist point of view?
Fourthly, I would argue thus, Why do we check and gall (and not...
I hope that I am mistaken, but I do not think what is being advocated here is going to end well. It seems to be part of a push towards increasing acceptance of feminism in conservative Reformed circles (just so long as women are not being ordained). Also, talk of a "female" voice in scripture sounds troubling.
I know I've posted on here several times, but I never actually introduced myself to everyone when I joined. That wasn't to snub you but because I was not in good health and was unable to be very interactive at the time.
My husband and I have been officially Reformed for about 10 years. We were evangelical-ish before that (I was raised Anglican; he Pentecostal). From the...
Forgive me. I don't mean to post something here that is a downer, so to speak. But I was in the midst of prayer and I'm just so stressed out.
I hate that I am a child without godly parents. I hate that I have had to learn most things on my own. That I was never given direction for anything. Raised without a day and a mom that is against the LORD.
I read books by a bunch of dead guys and...
I work in one of the church's coffee shops and it's been cool. Helps pay the bills and allows me to get to know people and share the Gospel.
I am currently seeking a way to raise more money and I have an opportunity to go for a job that is willing to pay a salary range of $45k-$50k a year. If I get the job it'll be the most I've ever made. And I brought this up to my pastor who told me that...
This thread was prompted by the recent thread entitled--
Biblical Argument For Spending Valuable Time Reading Fiction?
I'm no prophet, but I'm expecting to take heat for this opinion. But I've no mind on that, and it's no great matter (bonus point if you caught the allusion).
I think Pilgrim's Progress is over-rated and sentimental. Sure it was inventive for its day--but Bunyan is no...
