Reflecting on Scott Clark’s “Are Reformed ‘Evangelical’ or ‘Evangelicals’?”

"Most “evangelicals” today can’t tell you the evangel and there’s no consensus on what the Christian life looks like. Asking evangelicals to do evangelism and discipleship is like asking a hospice patient to lift weights. It’s not only fruitless it’s cruel." ~ R. Scott Clark

And not one of them dared question the apostles; they just sheepishly accepted this horrific fact.

Why Every Self-Respecting Reformed Christian Must be a Tuliper…

"How many points?" Surely there are more than five. And when that larger number of points taught by the Reformed confessions is not respected, the famous five are jeopardized, indeed, dissolved —and the ongoing spiritual health of the church is placed at risk.

1 Corinthians10:1-2 says the Israelites were baptized in the Red Sea. If as he says, baptism is immersion, then all Israel were immersed! So the Exodus story, according to JMac, is turned on its head: Israelites, not the Egyptians, were immersed and drowned in the sea!

Why John MacArthur’s Credobaptism is “Devilish”–Part One

"This devilish conduct of infant Baptism has survived through two thousand years of church life from very early on, the third century, embedded in the fourth and still here. We could only ask, Lord, that the Reformation would be a complete Reformation."
