Tue Jun 18, 2019 11:07 PM He who admonishes at the wrong time, injures [by chestnutmare]
An untimely profession of the truth, which is to cast pearls before swine, and to give that which is holy to the dogs, as Christ says; who, by these words, forbids such a profession of the truth as is not made at the proper time, and when no necessity demands it: for it is correctly said, He who admonishes at the wrong time, injures.

Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:12 PM Friendship [by chestnutmare]
To satisfy some bosom friends, some faithful friends. Man is made to be a friend, and apt for friendly offices. He who is not friendly is not worthy to have a friend; and he who has a friend, and does not show himself friendly, is not worthy to be accounted a man. Friendship is a kind of life, without which there is no comfort of a man's life. Christian friendship ties such a knot that great Alexander cannot cut. Summer friends I value not—but winter friends are worth their weight in gold; and who can deny such anything, especially in these days, wherein real, faithful, constant friends are so rare to be found? 1 Sam. 22:1-3.

Thu Jun 06, 2019 9:54 AM Fictitious worship [by chestnutmare]
Those who set up a fictitious worship, merely worship and adore their own delirious fancies; indeed, they would never dare so to trifle with God, had they not previously fashioned him after their own childish conceits.

~ John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion

Thu Jun 06, 2019 2:44 AM Opinions Wanted [by Tom]
I am not completely sure what to think of the following quote and would like to understand it, so I can at least form an opinion. I need to admit, this quote was on a Reformed board and there were no negative comments. However, the name Rushdoony sends up red flags, regardless of whether or not I understand it or not.

Quote
Polytheism (all gods are equal) leads to relativism (all moral codes are equal); relativism leads to humanism (man makes his own laws): and humanism leads to statism (the State best represents mankind as the pinnacle of power). As Rushdoony remarks, “because an absolute law is denied, it means that the only universal law possible is an imperialistic law, a law imposed by force and having no validity other than the coercive imposition.”

Mon Jun 03, 2019 10:32 AM Moral Absolutes [by chestnutmare]
If there is no absolute moral standard, then one cannot say in a final sense that anything is right or wrong. By absolute we mean that which always applies, that which provides a final or ultimate standard. There must be an absolute if there are to be morals, and there must be an absolute if there are to be real values. If there is no absolute beyond man's ideas, then there is no final appeal to judge between individuals and groups whose moral judgments conflict. We are merely left with conflicting opinions.
