  • The Glorious Protestant Reformation: Some Thoughts on Reformation Day

    On this day, October 31st, in the year of our Lord, 1517, an Augustinian friar (monk) in the Roman Catholic church, Martin Luther (1483-1546), who was also a theologian, priest, and a professor at the University at Wittenberg, nailed his 95 theses, which were theological problems he saw with Catholic theology as well as practices […]

  • Fantastic MLJ sermon!

    Here is a wonderful and edifying sermon by Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones! The sermon is titled “Christ, who is God“.

  • The Reformed Church in America: Dating and Dysfunction

    It’s not easy being a 47-year-old (never married) single Reformed man, who is disabled and suffering from severe mental illnesses, in America and looking for a godly wife.

    Was the Imago Dei (Image of God) lost in the Fall of man, or was it retained, yet in a distorted or compromised sense? The phrase has its origins in Genesis 1:27, wherein “God created man in his own image…” I posit that the Image of God was lost in the Fall of man and […]

  • Water Baptism: A Reformed Examination of John 3:5

    When a person is baptized is it the water itself that regenerates? Or is it the washing by the Holy Spirit that regenerates? According to Calvin, and other Reformed commentators, the water in John 3:5 is not referring to water baptism. And it is the washing by the Holy Spirit that regenerates. And that alone. […]
