The idea brought forth by those who claim that we who hold to God's sovereignty in all things are similar to the Greek pagans is without warranted. As Ronald Nash states in his book The Gospel and the Greeks, these so called gods were limited by their own weakness both physical and moral. Not to...
The Puritan Board
Section 30 of the LBCF states that the communion is in memorial and celebration of Jesus activities on our behalf.
I know that Presbyterians and Baptist approach baptism from differing perspectives, but reading through that section, it seemed that Reformed Baptists and Presbyterians agree on the communion?
Does anyone know much about what Todd Friel refers to here?
Hello all. I am new to having an account with Puritan Board, but I am not new to using Puritan Board as a resource to help me wrestle with certain theological topics.
Women wearing head coverings is something that I have wrestled with in the Scriptures. When I read through the text in Corinthian’s and take Paul at his word, (at least at the English translation in the ESV) it seems that head...
It seems weird that Ham would only be cursed for seeing his dad naked. And...correction..it was not even Ham but his son that was cursed (though Ham was also cursed with having his son cursed..any father would feel cursed if his actions caused his son to be cursed, after all)...this curse of his son makes since if there was something "off" about his son Canaan. The sin was Ham's but the...
I was at a Maryland zoo today and a gentleman and teenage boy approached me and asked if he could ask me a question. The teenager asked if I have heard about the "feminine image of God" or something along those lines. I said no so he started to explain it to me. He explained that for Adam and Eve to be made in God's image, there must be a mother deity or else we wouldn't have...
I‘m part of a Baptist church in a majority Eastern Orthodox country. One evening I gave a Bible Study and at the end there came up a question concerning the Filioque. Now, this question was asked by a fresh convert from EO (although nominal). It is the case that even nominal members of the EO-Church are aware of some doctrinal differences between the Western and Eastern tradition.
While most here agree that a call to be a minister or deacon is a pretty definite thing--there are Biblical standards laid out, and each group by and large has procedures for formally calling officers--what about other callings? When a woman says, "I am called to be a housewife," does that mean she aspires to be a housewife, or that being one already she is content? Is there some sort of...
This below questions are from one of my friend.
1. I find it hard to understand how the Doctrine of Hell glorifies God. While it's demonstrate God's justice and righteousness, why does this have to come at such a great and terrible cost?
2. Why does God take pleasure in predestinating millions of souls to hell? Why did God allow the human race to continue after Adam sinned when he knew what...
