I tried searching for this for a while and read several threads, but I've found them inconclusive... and all of them are closed so a new thread must be started.
1 Corinthians 11:1-16... Coverings... What's the interpretation?
I saw that someone mentioned the Greek terms being different:
• katakalyptō in verse 6, taken from kalypto which is usually used in the sense of concealment.
• peribolaion in verse 15, taken from periballo which is usually used as a garment or covering.
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 when Servetus was burned at the stake (and Calvin merely remorse that burning was harsh and perhaps...
When I see "leave Christ in Christmas" I am starting to consider the idea that Christ was never "in" Christmas. I'm tireing of trying to make a connection that is forced. I love Christmas time. I love the Lord. I give God the glory for corny Christmas songs, sweaters and movies. Eggnog and Christmas trees please me but have little to do with Christ. So what, either does craft beer but I drink it to his glory. Anyone feel me?

I use to read this guys articles and he was a friend of a brother from my old Church. I know he used to be Presbyterian. I found this article about his view of the Doctrine of Trinity. I'm not a theologian obviously. So heres my question, is his view of the Trinity correct or heretical? He was a very avid advocate of the original Nicene Creed. The one without the Filioque clause. I was always confused about this.
After visiting a Lutheran church while on vacation in Australia, I have found myself more and more drawn to Lutheranism. I do have an issue with their view on losing one's salvation, although they do say that believers can have assurance of salvation. They also embrace paradoxes (such as God's election vs free will).
Does anyone know of any good articles comparing Lutheran and Reformed theology? Or any good debates? I've benefited immensely from Dr James White's debates on Roman...
Would posters mine listing out 5 or so authors that are most important to read that you would recommend to me?
I always thought I was sort of "Reformed" but now I realize after being on this board Im not as much as I thought... As for me my go-tos are:
-Gospel coalition blog/s
This year I will read Institutes, and will read some of the...
This looks like an interesting project: a documentary film on Calvinism.
Post ratings added to the forum to replace the normal Like. It adds more options.
I've added two Negative ratings for Bad Spelling and Rude Posts. I don't want this to be abused so it's only available to Members Only for those ratings. If you receive more than 5 Negative ratings in these areas I'm experimenting with hiding the post to see how that works out.
We'll also be using this ratings feature to start to highlight the posts that "bubble to the top" to help improve the ability for...
This is my first post. I am on something of a theological journey right now. I have always been a Reformed Baptist from the time I was saved, however just recently I have started questioning my understanding of the covenants and baptism. I'm about five inches from "conversion" to the Paedobaptist viewpoint. I have a non-Reformed Baptist wife with two children under three and I have made my situation known to her. My question is, what is the Biblical approach to this situation where a person...
Did Dr.Tipton provide an accurate assessment of Professor Kline's covenant theology in your opinion?
As a side note, I am not an advocate of Klinean Republication; only hoping for fruitful dialogue to further my knowledge on the progress of the debate. If you know of any reviews that have been posted, they will be much appreciated.

It is my belief that Christ instituted the New Covenant by declaring that in his testament (last will) His blood be shed for all and he takes the death and shedding of blood on our behalf.
Robertson says the last supper was entirely covenantal and not testamental?
Confused by the language. Perhaps on another note his belief that Heb 9:15 relates to covenant and not testament causes confusion?
I'm looking for resources that deal with the obligation scripturally for a pastor to Tithe.
I have Turretin and Calamy, but they don't deal with the question. Calamy shows the "Christian parishioners" Tithe to support the minister. Turretin does the same very scripturally.But....
Practically, here is "a" question. Say a congregation has 7 families, and they are slowly growing. They hire a pastor. They say, we want to pay you 30000 a year, but we can only afford, right now, 10000. You might...
I am a strict 1689 adherent. I wish to be an apologist. I'm married to Sam Rodriguez and I have a child on the way. Can't wait to get this up and going
I don't have much else to say, but thanks for having me
As a lifelong Baptist, advent is a completely foreign notion to me, and I am aware that most of those who hold to the RPW would also eschew such ritual. My question pertains to the observation of advent within reformed denominations such as the PCA. I would assume that most PCA members on this board would be opposed to observing advent, however a friend of mine who is a PCA pastor recently posted on Facebook that he was beginning an advent sermon series. Is advent commonly observed in the...
