Today at 05:59 PM Pride by Tom Mor

"There may be as much pride inside a beggar’s rags as in a prince’s robe; and a harlot may be as proud as a model of chastity. Pride is a strange creature; it never objects to its lodgings. It will live comfortably enough in a palace, and it will live equally at its ease in a hovel. Is there any man in whose heart pride does not lurk?”

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 9:43 PM Time to Annihilate ISIS; Herečs How by Tom

I came across an article called ‘Time to Annihilate ISIS; Here’s How’ that I thought was worth sharing.
You can read the article here
After reading the article, although admittedly I am no expert military strategist, I am inclined to agree with the article. Yet, I wonder if it is as easy as the article seems to think it is?
Some of the people who responded don’t think so.

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 5:43 PM Merit and Moses: A Critique of the Klinean Doctrine of Republication by Pilgrim

Over the next few days I want to outline and assess an important new book, Merit and Moses: A Critique of the Klinean Doctrine of Republication, written by three OPC pastors, Andrew Elam, Robert Van Kooten, and Randall Berquist.

Merit and Moses is a response to The Law is Not of Faith, and especially the main thesis of that book, that the Mosaic Covenant is in an important sense a republication of the Covenant of Works.

Unlike The Law is Not of Faith (TLNF), Merit and Moses (MM) is readable, brief, consistent, and relatively simple. It obviously helps to have the truth on your side.

Before you decide to switch off from what you may think is some irrelevant academic debate, note that the authors of TLNF state that if we disagree with their view of the Mosaic covenant “we will be necessarily impoverished in our faith” and “see in only a thin manner the work of our Savior.” To disagree with republication is “not optional,” they say, because it paves the way for the erosion of the Gospel and of the doctrine of justification by faith.

All 4 Parts are now online.

The links to the 4 articles in the series can be accessed from the links below:

Do you agree or disagree with the following quote and why?

"Scripture informs prayer and prayer informs Scripture."

Monday, August 11, 2014 10:26 AM Keep your hearts by chestnutmare

Oh, study your hearts, watch your hearts, keep your hearts! Away with empty names and vain shows; away with unprofitable discourse and bold censures of others. Turn in upon yourselves, get into your closets, and now resolve to dwell there. You have been strangers to this work too long; you have kept other vineyards too long; you have trifled about the borders of religion too long. Will you now resolve to look better to your hearts? Will you hate and come out of the crowds of business and clamours of the world and retire yourselves more than you have done? Oh, that this day you would resolve upon it! ~ John Flavel
