( latest additions listed First )

  1. The Existence and Attributes of God   Open in New Window
    Be you perfect and good, for he had been exhorting them to bless them that cursed them, and to do good to them that hated them, from the example God had set them in causing his sun to rise upon the evil as well as the good. 'Be you therefore perfect.' As patience is Godís perfection, so it is the accomplishment of the soul: and as his "slowness to anger" argues the greatness of his power over himself, so an unwillingness to revenge is a sign of a power over ourselves which is more noble than to be a monarch over others. by Stephen Charnock, B.D.

  2. Riddlebarger Responds to MacArthur On Amillennialism   Open in New Window
    Kim Riddlebarger responds to John MacArthur on Amillennialism, Calvinism, Dispensationalism, Israel and Hermeneutics. Hs lecture requires a few relevant comments. Kim declares that this is hard to say, but in his lecture, Dr. MacArthur set up and repeatedly attacked a straw man. His was a pyrrhic victory over a phantom foe, and it requires a retort. by Kim Riddlebarger, B.A., M.A.R., Ph.D.

  3. The Great Falling Away (Apostasy)   Open in New Window
    As we think about this sign of the Great Apostasy or falling away, we should remember to love the truth of Godís word, to love Jesus Christ Himself, and to put our faith and trust in Him. As we do this, we have the love of truth, and we'll try the spirits to test for false teaching. That does not mean that we should be suspicious, but that we should evaluate the word of God ourselves. Just like the Bereans who searched the Scriptures themselves to see whether the things that they heard were true or not. by Rev. Rodney Kleyn

  4. For Motherís Day - Honoring Your Mother   Open in New Window
    From the wisdom of Solomon we can see how we may better honor our mother on Motherís Day, and indeed every day. But let us remember that in doing so, it is really God that we truly seek to honor. Because it is He Himself that has commanded you to, 'Honor your father and your mother -Exodus 20:12'. by Keith Throop

  5. Psalm 91, The Soldier's Psalm   Open in New Window
    Psalms 91, frequently called 'The Solder's Song," can provide a great encouragement to those in the military, but equally to farmers, teachers, mechanics or doctors and well Ė you get the idea. Yet itís not because of some mysterious power in the words themselves, but itís the way it points us to God who truly saves you from all the perils of life and death. It encourages us to make God our refuge and boldly trust his protection. by Michael Nott

  6. Being Missional in the Reformed Tradition   Open in New Window
    The terms 'missional' and "missional church" have been the buzz in various Reformed denominations and the wider church for about a decade now. But what exactly do the terms mean? That is an important question, and not an easy one to answer. But the historic Reformed church has been concerned with both the internal life and the outward ministry of the church. by J. Todd Billings

  7. He Is Risen   Open in New Window
    What I want you to see now is how God is building the faith of the disciples to trust in His word and His providence and to believe the resurrection. What's He doing? He's building a foundation for faith, because saving faith, my friends (the only faith that saves), is based upon the word of God and the promises of God, and is focused solely on the Lord Jesus Christ. by Dr. Ligon Duncan

  8. The Cult Of Christian Trumpism   Open in New Window
    Doesn't Christian evangelicals reject any worship of anyone other than the Triune God, and even the intercession of Mary and the saints? Maybe common love for Donald Trump overtakes these theological convictions and Christian principles? Our response should be, What theological convictions? Has Idolatry taken precedence over Christian doctrine and theology? by Michael Horton

  9. Biblical Christmas Spirit Imitates Christ - He Emptied Himself   Open in New Window
    In the Christmas season everybody talks about goodwill and love to fellow men. It happens every year, but does not last. But in the church it does. By the grace of God love grows. But it needs to abound, and so the Lord would have us cultivate that Christmas spirit in ourselves and each other. To live is Christ, and therefore the children of God follow His examplet in self-emptying, not insisting on our rights. by Rev C Bouwman

  10. That Which Offends   Open in New Window
    I was reminded of this when James Dobson spoke to reporters after a meeting with Donald Trump who supposedly made a commitment to Christ. Dobson assured us Trump is just a "baby Christian" and part of the evidence was the fact that in his own remarks after the meeting, Trump used the word "hell" four or so times. Dobson said that the fact that Trump still "doesnít speak our language" was evidence of the infancy of his Christianity but that it would no doubt get cleaned up eventually. by Scott Hoezee

  11. How Can I Get A Clear Conscience   Open in New Window
    Conscience can be defined as "an inner feeling that acts as a guide to the rightness or wrongness of oneís behavior." For those with a biblical worldview, the conscience is the part of the human soul that is most like God (Genesis 3:22). Those who disbelieve God have a difficult time explaining the existence of the human conscience. Evolution cannot account for this facet of the human spirit, which cannot be explained by a "survival of the fittest" mentality.

  12. Why Church-State Separation Is Good For Churches   Open in New Window
    The church-state relationship in America is perpetually unsettled, vulnerable to lawsuits and changing norms. In just the last few months, court rulings and executive actions have again challenged old ideas about the proper distance between religion and government, sparking both outcry and celebration. It wasn't supposed to be this complicated. by Kelsey Dallas

  13. Thanksgiving unto God's Glory   Open in New Window
    Thanksgiving Day will be held in the United States this week. Few in our country even realize the idea behind the celebration of this day. It is a day set aside to give thanks to God for providing a plentiful harvest again in the season past. It is a day in which we give thanks to God for providing our homes and families with food. For that reason, I want to consider a passage today that speaks of thanksgiving. by Rev. Wilbur Bruinsma

  14. Who Is the True Israel of God?   Open in New Window
    I recently read an article in which a noted Christian theologian encouraging Christian churches to celebrate the Passover Seder. His line of argumentation was not we're required to keep Old Testament feasts and festivals but that by observing Passover, Christians can better remember the Jewish foundation as well as help foster improved Jewish-Christian relations. Strikingly absent from this article were any biblical references to Christís fulfillment of the old covenant feasts and festivals. by Nick Batzig

  15. Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7   Open in New Window
    Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7 and 14? Do they refer to Jewish evangelists who live during the seven years of Tribulation as popular commentaries suggests? No. In short, whatever else may be said about the 144,000, we can be sure that it speaks of the redeemed from "all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues" (v. 9) as being united in one covenant body or one church,ónamely the universal invisible church of Christ.

  16. Modern Religion   Open in New Window
    They tell us that God wants to do many things for us and with us that we will not let him do. We are told that Christ died for all the people of the world in an attempt to redeem and save all men; but that all are not saved. Modern religion tells us that the Holy Spirit of God calls all men alike to Christ; but some men resist the power of his grace, while others allow him to have his way. by Don Fortner

  17. What is Christless Christianity   Open in New Window
    Christless Christianity is a term coined by author Michael Horton in his book by the same name. In Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church, Horton argues that the American church is heading for a version of Christianity that eagerly accepts Christís offer of salvation but considers it to be just another benefit in a life spent pursuing the American Dream. by GotQuestions.org

  18. Reflections on Race and Racism   Open in New Window
    If race is a fabrication of the sinful imagination, there seems to be one fundamental and necessary response. Deal with it as the lie it is. Stop acting as though race is real. Stop treating and judging people according to what is false. When it comes to race and racism, Reformed churches must reflect on their history soberly and work toward a better future seriously. May the Lord grant us much humility, charity, and wisdom. by David VanDrunen

  19. A Christian Approach to the News Media   Open in New Window
    Considering Biblical cautions, how should we approach the news? Critical analysis is useful and necessary, but inadequate if it only develops scepticism in viewers, listeners and readers. Even sceptics need to recognise that enjoyment, enlightenment, insight and delight may come to us through the media. Though objectivity may be elusive, news reports reveal scandals and problems that need to be corrected and punished. There is nothi9ng wrong with taking part in that striving for a better world. by Klaas-Jan Gunnink

  20. Biblical Antidotes to Racism Ė Part 2   Open in New Window
    If Christ is all in our unity, being like Christ must be our priority if we must maintain the unity of the Spirit. And how are we to maintain this unity? Paul lays down the method here in Colossians 3 from verse 12 through to verse 17. We are to put on the fruit of the Spirit, and we are to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly. We are to fight racist tendencies with mercy, and kindness, humility and meekness and longsuffering. by Ronald Kalifungwa
