The Puritan Board
As Peter saw Chris transfigured and saw (engaged with?) Moses and Elijah he suggested tents be built (I assume to prolong the experience). Luke paints Peter the fool for saying this when he adds "...—not knowing what he said."
What do you think was so unbecoming of this suggestion/statement?
 And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that...
I am 54 years old. I live in Wichita Kansas and attend Trinity Reformed Presbyterian Church. I've been reformed for about 3 years and I love to read theology. In the past I've been associated with Pentecostal, charismatic, and anabaptist churches. I've come away from those with positive as well as negitive things to deal with. I'm pretty conservative theologically, except that I'm a cautious...

Alexander was the first professor of Old Princeton Seminary (early 1800's), and this work is unavailable in any other form. I have...
Hello everyone, I came across a site to request a pastor's review copy of the soon to be released CSB.
I was listening to Ligon Duncan on Covenant theology and I'm pretty sure I heard him say that since Genesis 1-28 was God telling Adam to take dominion over everything, Adam actually sinned by not kicking the serpent out of the garden. I know that isn't what caused the fall, but did Adam sin before ? If not, how is allowing Satan into Gods dwelling place when you had been ordered to have...
I see that Piper and Keller and N.T. Wright really seem to focus on the concept of enjoying God. And that is the chief end of man to Glorify and enjoy him forever. I see a similar posture from Spurgeon... When all is said and done they all acknowledge a heaven to gain and a hell to shun, but it seems they almost seem to really have the crux of the Gospel to be presented in a sense where its...
