The Puritan Board
In the absence of the blogs of old where one could collect links to significant threads, I'd like to post here for reference some previous textual threads (I'll be doing the same for Baptism and misc material, and eschatology).

I remember a Reformed Minister that I used to be close with explaining some differences between the 3FU and the WCF. He said one for instance, the WCF teaches that assurance of faith is not the essence of faith, but rather is a reflex act of the believer. The Three Forms teach assurance of faith is the essence of faith. He said that this sounds like a minor issue but it has been argued quite...
I was listening to this lecture by Dr. John Gerstner on RefNet Radio the other day, and he mentioned the one place in the WCF wherewith he disagreed, and that is in the language of WCF 28.6, which reads as follows (the passage of interest is bolded):
We've started singing common metered Psalms in family worship as I can't read music. My knowledge is stuck in the second-grade "empty garbage before Daddy flips" level. We've used "Amazing Grace" but what others have any of you been successful with?

JC Ryle, Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Mt 13:53-58:
"The last thing which we ought to notice in these verses is the ruinous nature of unbelief. The chapter ends with the fearful words, "He didn't do many miraculous works there, because of their unbelief."
Behold in this single word the secret of the everlasting ruin of multitudes of souls! They perish forever,...
I am far from educated on the ins and outs of the content with which Im about to share, but I operate from what I do know (or think I know)...
I know we arent to throw the baby out with the bath water, but on earth are we to embrace men who were "theologically correct" on so many issues, yet were slave owners? On Calvin who, maybe didn't preside over it, but did stand like Saul over Stephen...
