This article originally appeared on my blog (Here). “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45) Service is not a uniquely Christian concept. The language of service is something engrained throughout society....
The Puritan Board
Due to military relocation, my wife and I are in the process of searching for a new church. In our area, we have been blessed with a choice between two different reformed congregations. I'll start out by saying that we have visited both (more than once), and we have found them to be faithful to the Scriptures and to our confession/standards. While this is great news, it also makes this process...
I've been gleaning valuable information from the board for a while, and I figured it was time to stop being such a "tourist" and join in the conversation. I am a member of the OPC, along with my beloved wife. I look forward to engaging with you all! God Bless!

It occasionally pays off, though, for Milton can ascend to the highest literary planes. You can’t stay at that pace the whole time, though. Our mortal coil cannot take large amounts of pure beams of light....
Did a good bit of study and reading this last week on this topic. It seems to make sense: if Christ offering himself up on the cross was him making payment for sins, it only seems to follow that the resurrection acted as a "proof of purchase"; that this payment was effective, accepted by the Father. In citing Scripture, most refer either to 1 Corinthians 15:17 or Romans 4:25. But there are...
If you had to pick some all-time favorite shows, which ones would you pick? I'm looking for some shows to watch. The only thing is that I won't watch a show that has some seriously questionable worldliness.
Hey Arnold is a classic I grew up with.
The Munsters are pretty good.
I've been watching the Looney Tunes a bit.
