    The Mystery of Christ: His Covenant & Kingdom: Typology

    Hello All, I am currently a 1689 Baptist who is considering switching to a local RPCNA church. Long story short I am on the fence 50/50 on each view and I am having a hard time understanding the distinctives between the two covenant theology camps. I am comparing Baptist Covenant Theology...

    Hello All, I was doing a study on Solomon as a Type of Christ and starting thinking about the this verse when God granted Solomon wisdom. The verse says, 1Ki 3:11 And God said to him, "Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your...

    What was the Old Testament way of salvation?

    We know that, in the New Testament era, salvation comes by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way but, before Christ, what was the way? We definitely can't say the Jews were saved by the law. I usually go about arguing the position looking at Paul's quote of Habakkuk in Galatians...

    Questions About Prayer

    Is praying "In Jesus Name" only available for the apostles? Don't all NT saints automatically pray "through Jesus Christ" since Jesus is the mediator for all of his saints? Do our prayers have to directly be for God's glory or can we have other motives (non sinful of course)? All we have to do...

    The covenant keeping God: a still small voice, and a consuming fire

    I grew up in a Reformed Presbyterian church; faithful elders and my Pastor broke unto us the bread of life, and living waters Lord's Day after Lord's Day, and for 21 years, it meant nothing to me. Philosophy, the deep indwelling questions seated in the heart of man plagued since I was a wee...

    Our bruises endear us to Christ the more; a tender husband to His beloved

    Because of the remaining corruption of the flesh, as we yet inhabit these bodies of dust, awaiting glory, when we shall see Christ face to face, and to see Him as He is, our father employs various trials and afflictions as He sees fit to stir us up from our slumber, giving us no rest until we...

    My Life as a Calvinist Christian (With the Struggles of Faith)

    There was a time when I was 'holier than thou.' I used to think that I was so Godly. I used to think that knowing the truth of the Gospel (which Calvinism entails) and all the fine details about the Gospel were all I needed for salvation. I would always be obsessed with a girl. Always. If it...

    Messianic Judaism and deity of Jesus Christ

    Someone in my family no longer believes Jesus Christ is God because of their recent belief of Messianic Judaism. According to my family member, Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and is the Son of God, but isn't God. Well, I believe there are different variations of Messianic Jews, but the Messianic...

    The true knowledge of God

    Preaching from John 16:3, Martin Luther observes: The true knowledge of God and of Christ has often been defined. It is not an idle, empty thought or dream, as reason is able to think of God and Christ on the basis of hearsay, and as it pictures Him and acts toward Him according to such...

    Hello, all. Not sure if you have heard about the new documentary, 'Babies are Murdered Here' put out by Crown Rights Media (same people who did "How to Answer the Fool").

    Showing the Deity of Christ to JW's - Their Visit this A.M

    Just got done spending an hour or so with a few Jehova's Witnesses that came by the house. I do believe the Lord spoke very clearly to them through me and, while they did not repent and believe, they seem like they'll both be bothered or wrestling at least a little bit. I finally had the...
