Fri Sep 25, 2020 10:03 PM Progressive Parallelism [by Tom]
I had the pleasure of talking to a pastor/theologian who is Amillennial. I was talking to him about William Hendrickson’s book, ‘More Than Conquerors’.

The response I received back went a little over my head; so later I did a little more research.
He said among other things:
Quote
Beale and Smalley and Johnson for that matter, flesh out more thoroughly the progressive parallelism advocated by Hendricksen

The following is something I found on “Progressive Parallelism”.

Any thoughts that may help me to understand this better, would be appreciated.
Thanks
Tom

Think of the cross, the nails, the open wounds, the anguish of His soul

(Albert Barnes, 1798-1870)

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God." 1 Peter 3:18

I entreat you to devote one solemn hour of thought to a crucified Savior--a Savior expiring in the bitterest agony.

Think of the cross, the nails, the open wounds, the anguish of His soul.

Think how the Son of God became a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, that you might live in Heaven forever.

Think as you lie down upon your bed to rest, how your Savior was lifted up from the earth to die.

Think amid your plans and anticipations of future gaiety, what the redemption of your soul has cost, and how the dying Savior would wish you to act. His wounds plead that you will live for better things.

"He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness" 1 Peter 2:24

Thu Sep 10, 2020 1:06 AM A Glimpse of God is the Beginning [by Pilgrim]
“Hence that dread and amazement with which as Scripture uniformly relates holy men were struck and overwhelmed whenever they beheld the presence of God. Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance until they have.” - John Calvin

Thu Sep 03, 2020 12:20 AM Evangelism [by Tom]
I am running into more and more Reformed Presbyterians who say that the average Christian should not be doing evangelism. They believe it should be left up to those who are gifted in evangelism and the average Christian should just invite people to Church.
First of all, up until recently I have never heard such talk.

However, I am wondering if this kind of thought is common among Reformed Presbyterians?

Wed Sep 02, 2020 12:28 AM Article 17 of the Canons of Dordt [by Tom]
I have a question concerning article 17 of the Canons of Dordt.

Quote
Article 17. Since we are to judge of the will of God from his Word, which testifies that the children of believers are holy, not by nature, but in virtue of the covenant of grace, in which they, together with the parents, are comprehended, godly parents have no reason to doubt of the election and salvation of their children, whom it pleaseth God to call out of this life in their infancy.


It appears that this is saying that the children who die in infancy of godly parents by implication are elect and saved.

Do I understand this properly?

Tom
