Regardless of your denomination affiliation, what this man writes should be of vital importance to YOU and your church. Be aware of what is happening around you for the day just might come that...

I wrote a reply to the blog post... it is awaiting moderation for now. In a nutshell I said:

At first all this elaborate stuff seemed to be simply an argument for paedocommunion in the PCA. It seems to have quickly morphed into something much more far-reaching. While I sympathize with those in the PCA who support paedocommunion, I am not willing to turn the Reformation on its head in order to justify it.

Secondly, it seems to me that proponents of FV can "sound" completely orthodox, using such familiar terms as justification by faith, as long as their meaning of those terms remains hidden (or evasively explained) from those who hear and judge their words.

Thirdly (and I didn't include this in my reply to the blog because the author already said it better than I can), the PCA is awfully arrogant to think that they can avoid the same fate as the majority of other Protestant denominations when confronting questions about foundational doctrines. The apostate PCUSA claims the Westminster Standards as well as the PCA - yet they have no difficulty in skirting it (not to mention the Scripture) to justify ordaining non-celibate practicing homosexuals as church officers.

Hi Max,

"Paedocommunion" is the practice of giving the Lord's Supper to infants & young children who have not professed their faith. The word itself is a Greek-Latin hybrid, taking the (Latinized) Greek prefix "paedo-" (in Greek, actually "paido-," indicating a small child) from the word "paedobaptism" (baptism of infants) and tacking it onto the Latin "communion" (Latin for "sharing," a translation of the Greek would "koinonia," meaning "fellowship" or "partaking together" and referring to the Lord's Supper).

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
