Friday, July 22, 2016 7:30 AM Speaking of Baptist by John_C

When did they get away from the Baptist London Confession? By getting away I mean I rarely come across any Baptist today that will cite the BLC (or is LBC) as their confession. They tend to trace their heritage back to the anabaptist more. Did the BLC travelled over to North America or stayed mostly in England churches? Did it happen after Finney or another dramatic occurrence? Or basically they still incorporate it as their confession without acknowledging the standard itself?

What makes a person truly reformed?,.. Does one have to subscribe to the Confessions, and Creeds or can one reject them and still claim to be reformed?

Sunday, July 17, 2016 1:33 AM World Reformed Fellowship Network Statement of Faith by Johan

Someone I know who holds a prominent position in the World Reformed Fellowship Network was interviewed this morning on radio here in South Africa. In the interview he explained what the WRF is etc etc. He also referred to the statement of faith of the WRF. I visited their web page to see what this statement of faith says. Have not read it in detail but Article 6 under the Doctrine of God caught my attention. It says:
Quote:

6. In the Old Testament God speaks in the person of the Father

In the Old Testament God speaks as one person, whom the New Testament equates with the Father of Jesus Christ, although the term ‘Father’ was not normally used to speak about God in Israel. However, it is clear that the God of the Old Testament is both sovereign and invisible in a way which is fully in agreement with the person of the Father as revealed to us by Jesus. The Father is the one whose will Jesus (as the Son) has come to obey and fulfil and he is the one person of the Godhead who remains both permanently invisible and transcendent at all times. The Son and the Holy Spirit are not very extensively described in the Old Testament but they are eternally present in God and participate fully in all his acts, especially the great work of creation, and there are many references to the person and work of the promised Messiah, as well to the work of God’s Spirit among the people of God and in the broader world.


Now the reason why it caught my attention is because a number of years ago Pilgrim posted a question here on The Highway asking whose voice was it that was heard at Mount Sinai. We finally came to the conclusion (Pilgrim knew the answer beforehand!) that it was the voice of the Son and the reason being that the Son is the only mediator between the Father and man. And the Son was the mediator from the beginning; he didn't become it only later at His incarnation. I have also checked this interpretation with another reformed pastor here and he immediately confirmed it. And then there are also the numerous references in the OT to the appearance of the Angle of the Lord. Personally, I therefore don't agree with this article.

Would like to hear your evaluation of this specific article of the WRF's statement of faith.

I didn't have the time to carefully read through the whole statement of faith. Just scanned it and I am not really convinced that it can stand next to the Three Forms of Unity as this person claimed this morning on radio.

This comment is from a associate on Facebook and he claims:

Quote:
I personally Believe that anyone without a Personal Salvation Testimony is NOT Saved. Because The Spirit of God Agrees with Our Spirit that we are the Sons of God. its impossible to be Born Again Spiritually and not know it. that's insain to even think so. whether its a Period of Time or events combined or a one instant occurance is not the issue but there must be a Witness that brings a Story. I've heard Personal Testimony after Personal Testimony of people who were in Church Life all their lives then 20 years later they were Born Again which gave a Spiritual Witness that was undeniable.

I don't want to make this a long question on this post, but what sayest thou?.... He claims that if you DO NOT KNOW the precise date of your conversion you are not saved.

Friday, July 15, 2016 7:25 PM Is there a major difference? by Mckinley

John 4:24 (KJV) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24 (NIV) God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth. John 4:24 ..... Is there a major difference as shown in Q&A 4 of the Standards, God is A Spirit?.... Saying that God is "a" spirit is very different than what scripture says: God is spirit. with definite and indefinite articles. They can radically change the meaning of an idea. Is this true?
