Christians Watching the Super Bowl? Posted by Mark Jones

For many, this Lord’s Day will be different from all other Lord’s Days in 2015. It’s “Super Bowl Sunday” after all. Mark Jones challenges the thinking of many who chose sports over the Lord and His people. Read it here.

The Ordinary Christian Life by Michael Horton

Here is a good article by Dr. Michael Horton, published by Ligonier Ministries – “The Ordinary Christian Life.”

part of the last chapter of new book on the Lord’s Supper

Chapter 7   Final Thoughts     In the first chapter of this study, it was noted that the specific focus of this book is to show how the Lord’s Supper is a means of grace and, therefore, more than a memory. I have argued that the Lord’s Supper is a means of grace because of what the Holy Spirit does in the souls of believers when local churches partake  [ Read More ]

back to the good ol’ days? – thoughts on this world and the means of grace

There are no good ol’ days, except prior to the fall and even those days were not the best of days (Adam could, and did, fall into sin.). The best of days are yet to come.

This book by Pascal Denault is a welcome addition to the literature on an issue that has vexed many for too long. It is clear that the seventeenth-century Particular Baptists’ formulation of covenant theology in the Second London Confession of Faith – 1677/89 (cf. 2nd LCF 7.3, for example) was a modified version of the one contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
