    I cannot express into words all that The Mountain Retreat has meant to me. It is very refereshing to read and to study articles from brothers in Christ who are moved to believe the scriptures as I do. It became apparent many years ago upon accepting the call to preach I was in the minority as an Amillennial. After many years of prayer and Bible study it is still difficult for me to understand how so many persist in their Premillennial Doctrine. The Mountain Retreat has given me the added strength needed to preach with conviction all that God has laid upon my heart. Thank you once again for this website.Pray for me as I will pray for you.

    I have been hearing about how great this site is and frankly I am not impressed. If all there is here is articles of John Calvin, Herman Hoeksema and Bunyan, then you have missed the boat. The site needs a facelift, and it was much better when you spoke out against Roman Catholicism and their false doctrines. Now it's all about being nice and how the Reformed Church is failing us. The Reformed Church is simply modernizing, not failing. Its caught up to the 20th century. Get with the program.

    I found your site while searching for a baptist history. While I know you are not Baptist, still your articles are spot on and insightful. Hope I can use your articles, with credit to your site of course.
Thank you for your Historical, Reformed and Evangelical stance.

May God bless you in the work.

    Thanks for the article in 2009 answering the question "is faith a human response or a gift from God?" This really helped clarify this issue for me. The article is worth saving and requires at least 2-3 readings for it to "settle in". Thanks again and I will pass this article along.

    Hi,
I have a question. If god truly loves all people, then why did he have so many of them killed throughout the world's history?

I enjoy reading your articles over the web every morning. Thank you for your inspirational sermons on Grace. Christians are often confused about good works and our faith, but they need not be. Faith and good works are the evidence, not the basis of the Christian's salvation. I would like to say that your site embodies the thinking that nothing in the world can be properly realized and understood unless it is understood in terms of God's divine design and sovereign plan.

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away." -Psalm 1:1

    To Stephon Lawrence. It is not the Reformed view that forbids homosexuality, it is the BIBLE! Only obedience to Christ and His Gospel will save you from hell. That implies faith and repentance from all known sin, including a "gay-lifestyle".

    Just surfed in and I don't agree with your Reformed view of the gay lifestyle as sin. Gay people who love their partner in a deep, meaningful and loving relationship makes the gay lifestyle acceptable. Paul repeatedly tell us that we are no longer under the law? I believe he said that the old Law was crucified and called it an old schoolmaster. (Gal 3:23-25, Rom 6:14-15, Rom 7:6). Paul seems to repeatedly say that there is no salvation under the law, an argument he continually had with his Jewish brothers. So just think on these things.

    Not happy with your no sex before marriage policy. You don't really expect anyone to actually refrain from sex do you? Wouldn't it be more Christian to preach that teens practice safe sex, and only with someone they love? It's unrealistic and legalistic to think teens will refrain from sex. Better to preach moderation than to preach in vain.

 
Reply:
    Actually, it's not my "no sex before marriage policy," it's what's written in God's law. And you're certainly not alone in your displeasure with it. Nor in your belief that premarital sex is an unconquerable urge that should be managed rather than witnessed against. It has always been the nature of man (Proverbs 12:15) to justify whatever "seems" right in his own eyes, rather than follow the counsel of God.

To specifically answer your question, NO, it most certainly would not be "more Christian" to preach that teens should practice safe sex, but it would be "more Palatable" to those who prefer to compromise and concede rather than fight the good fight that Christians are called upon to fight. And to imply that it is impractical for people to abstain from sex before marriage is post-modern humanistic propaganda, which not only invalidates God's law, but general morality and history as well. Which I'll grant, most people are perfectly willing to do to ease their conscience. But there is the faith of the saints in the testimony of Christ.

You say "Better to preach moderation than to preach in vain," but for the record, no preaching in truth, is preaching in vain.
