What About Wine in the Lord’s Supper?

July 25, 2017

While Scripture condemns drunkenness (Deu 21:20; Prv 20:1; Rom 13:13; 1Cor 6:10; Gal 5:21; Eph 5:18; 1Pet 4:3), it also says that wine is not inherently evil, but even good. Note that the word for good wine used in the wedding at Cana (Grk oinos) is the same word used in Ephesians 5:18, “And do […]

In Search of the New Testament Church Potluck

The Lord's Supper was a full meal or agape ("love feast") even after the apostolic age until the 3rd century, when the agape and the formal supper became separate institutions.

Summary Points on Christian Baptism

Baptism is not a Christian's public profession of his own decision to believe in Christ (a truly Arminian idea), but the sign and seal of Christ's own work of washing of a sinner to save him.

“Abraham the Father of All Who Believe”

“Abraham the Father of All Who Believe”

To thousands of new Jewish converts to Christianity, this was the meaning of believers-only baptism: as soon as they believed in Christ, their children, formerly members of God's own treasured people, now have become unclean, detestable pagans, cut off from God's covenant promises. And not one of them dared question the apostles; they just sheepishly accepted this horrific fact.

Ted Williams and Great Testimonies

Ted Williams and Great Testimonies

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been hearing about this Ted Williams story, but was never interested enough to inquire more than just the usual mouseover summary. But the story must have been interesting enough that even R. Scott Clark blogged about it: Americans love a comeback story. Americans also love magic. Sometimes the […]

Is it Biblical for a lifeguard to perform a baptism?

In the secular world, accountants, auto mechanics, doctors, engineers, electricians, lawyers, plumbers, train operators, etc., can only practice their profession if they have a license. But if evangelicals would not trust a doctor to build their houses or an auto mechanic to do a root canal, why do they put a biblically-illiterate Tommy Lee in charge of their souls?

Sacrament and Other Things “Catholic”

June 9, 2009

"A Glossary of Terms Used in Reformed Churches Frequently Thought to be Catholic." People from mainstream evangelical churches who visit Reformed churches usually come away with the feeling that they had been to a Roman Catholic Mass or something similar. For example, when they hear us mention sacrament, they imagine a priest conducting Holy Communion. And in the Apostles' Creed, why do we "believe in the holy catholic church"?

Beeke Conference Outline Notes

May 7, 2009

"Apart from election, no one will be saved because we are all totally depraved. Election compels evangelism. Election leads to holiness. Rejecting particular redemption leads to a confusion among the Persons of the Trinity in the work of salvation." -- Dr. Joel R. Beeke

What do you mean by “profession of faith”?

May 6, 2009

After persevering through the catechism and review classes, and 1-1/2 to 2 hours of interviewing by the elders, Maria Teresa Cadaoas, Jill Abarra and Russel De Guzman: welcome to Pasig Covenant Reformed Church family of Christ!

Reformed Worship Part 3: Worship Must Be Historical

February 25, 2008
Reformed Worship Part 3: Worship Must Be Historical

Evangelicals have no knowledge as to what the church's worship and music was like only a few decades ago. They have no connectedness to the past, and will surely be disconnected from the future.

Where Has Church Discipline Gone?

October 5, 2007

“If you were the pastor of a paedobaptistic church, and an unmarried couple asks you to baptize their infant child, would you?” I asked this question to my students at the Bible school. Six out of eleven said no, for various reasons. The other five said they would, also for various reasons which include: if […]
