Excellent analysis by TE Wes White

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

TE Wes White offers a clear and helpful analysis of the contrast between the soteriology of confessional Reformed Theology and the soteriological system proposed by the Federal Vision.

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

Geneva Redux gives a welcome quotation from Machen’s God Transcendent, published in 1949: The increasing richness and the increasing precision of Christian doctrine were brought about very largely by the necessity of excluding one alien element after another from the teaching of the church. From the time of the Apostles to the present day, it […]
