If you had to make a choice, would you choose PRCA or the OPC?

Yesterday at 05:42 AM "The Strength of Sin" Pt. 3 by Ralph Erskine by chestnutmare

This month, we complete the sermon series on 1 Cor. 15:56 "The strength of sin is the law."with Sermons LXXVII, LXXVIII, which are the fifth and sixth expository sermons on this text by Ralph Erskine, The Strength of Sin; and how the Law is the Strength thereof, opened up and unfolded

"My friends, we need to seek salvation from sin, elsewhere than in and by the law, and the works thereof; for the law of God cannot save or justify the least transgressor of it, otherwise it must condemn itself, which is impossible: Cursed is everyone, says the law, that continues not in all things written in the hook of the law to do them; and we are obliged to say Amen to that curse, as every way just and righteous: Cursed is he that confirms not all the words of this law, to do them; and all the people shall say, Amen, Deut. xxvii. 26. It is the very nature of the law to condemn the least transgressor of it, whatever after-works of obedience he may perform; for, Whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all, Jam. ii. 10. Therefore, the highest act of obedience, even of the saints in heaven, cannot expiate the least breach of Godís law, neither can any duty performed, take away the fault of as in committed. Sin therefore retains its strength to enslave, and strength to destroy the sinner, by virtue of the broken law that he is under, so long as he hath net wherewith to repair the honour of the law: the honour of the precept of the law must be repaired by a perfect obedience, and the honour of the threatening by a complete satisfaction, otherwise the strength of sin remains; but, whenever a man is clothed with the obedience and satisfaction of Christ, then Being reputed no transgressor, but a perfect: keeper and fulfiller of the law, it is no more the strength of sin in him; for, according to our doctrine from this text, the law of works is the strength of sin, only to the sinner, by whom it is broken, not to the believer, by whom it is fulfilled in his glorious Head.1"

Friday, April 29, 2016 10:08 AM Protestant Classical view on Canonicity by John_C

I read where the Protestant classical view on Canonicity is 'a fallible collection of infallible books'. Which is distinguish from the Roman Catholic view 'a infallible collection of infallible books'. Of course the Liberal view will say 'fallible collection of fallible books.

How are we to understand the classical Protestant view on fallible collection? What does that mean?

Saturday, April 23, 2016 5:20 PM 3 fold usage of the law by Mckinley

Why is it that much rejection is mounted when speaking on the 2nd commandment that the comment of we are not under the law but grace?... When I asked about the 3 fold usage of the law I was meet as always with replies as and I quote..? I understand what the three fold usage of the law is and I reject it as a mix match of biblical and non biblical. The worst part about this concept is it is a trying to mix law and grace. And were there is law, there is no grace (Gal. 6... What is a helpful response to this statement?

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 1:29 PM It's not just for the academic by Tom

I was just reading one of Robin's blogs called "it not just for the academic".
As I was reading it, I found myself thinking things like "this sounds like something I would write."
There are times that I need to force myself out of boredom, or sleepiness.
These feeling make me feel guilty at times, because what I am participating in is Biblical and solid. Yet, doesn't always (there are exceptions) pull at the heart strings.
The hymns are geared towards the sermon that morning and although they are great hymns of the faith. They are not always sung on key.
The sermons are always rich in scripture and detail, but there are times when they are so deep, some find themselves lost.
My pastor knows this, so he is being proactive and is taking courses to try to improve his preaching. He is half way through his courses and I have not noticed much difference.
Don't misunderstand me, I will take this over what I had before any day.
But...
Tom
