The most broken vow of all

Monday, March 1st, 2010

“What is the most broken vow in the church?” The answer Carl Trueman offers to that timely question may surprise you.

Machen on The Responsibility of the Church in Our New Age

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Posted on the site Geneva Redux this is an excerpt from the Selected Shorter Writings of J. Gresham Machen, edited by D.G. Hart. Machen urges that the Church, now as always, must be radically doctrinal and intolerant! Read on to understand what he means.

James Bannerman on the authority of Christ in worship

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

If the Lord Jesus Christ be the only source of authority within His own Church, then it is abundantly obvious that it is an unlawful interference with that authority for any party, civil or ecclesiastical, to intermeddle with His arrangements, to claim right to regulate His institutions, or to pretend to the power of adding […]

The salt that is to save this country

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

Sir, the salt that is to save this country is the Church of Christ — a Church that does not mix up with any political party, or any issues aside from her direct mission. I have no faith in parties or men, Republicans or Democrats, Congresses or Presidents — the times are dark — but […]

Thornwell on the Westminster Standards

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Subscription to the Standards as a protection We have always heretofore regarded subscription as a security for the sound dispensation of the Word of God. It is for the sake of the people whom the Church wishes trained to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not simply for the sake […]

Growing Reformed Churches

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

Westminster Seminary – California is hosting a conference entitled Missional & Reformed. The term ‘missional’ is a buzz-word of the so-called ’emerging church movement’, which intends to be a reshaping of Protestant Christianity in ‘ways which will accommodate postmodern culture.’ This conference interacts with the ‘missional’ emphasis of this movement. Broadly speaking, postmodernism (and this […]

Ministers All?

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

In the introduction to the evening sermon on 2 December 2007 in relation to the Priesthood of Believers I mentioned that some might misunderstand this doctrine and suggest that everyone has the same authority and calling in the church. That erroneous egalitarian perspective is part-and-parcel of what is sometimes called the ‘Every Member Ministry’ model. […]

Confessing the Faith

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

From a recent article by the Rev. Dr. Robert W. Godfrey and the Rev. Dr. David VanDrunen in the OPC’s Ordained Servant magazine, the following brief comment is spot on and very much worth considering carefully. In fact, confessions should not be seen simply as brief summaries of larger systematic theologies. They are the written […]

Recovering Mother Kirk

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

While the title of this book is quite apt, the subtitle (‘The Case for Liturgy in the Reformed Tradition’) is somewhat misleading. Yes, the author D. G. Hart discusses ‘liturgy in the Reformed Tradition’ in several of the essays collected here, and he does so with remarkable faithfulness. But the underlying thesis of this book, […]
