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
My intent is not to start a debate on wether an offering “is” or “is not” an Element of worship, so please let’s not go there in this thread.
Let us assume that giving tithes in public worship “IS” an element.
In my congregation we pass the plate in both the morning and evening worship. Usually I place my family’s tithe in the plate every other Sunday (I am paid every 2 weeks) during the...
Hey folks! I'm Ryan. I've lurked the PB for a decent amount of time and stolen plenty of suggestions, reading material, etc from the posts and I figured it'd be better to join and partake rather than lurk and benefit off of others work while providing none of my own!
I attend a PCA Church, though I'm more OPC. I'm currently in the process of coming under care in order to become an Army...

This of course leads into the whole common grace / offer discussion.
I want us to consider a couple things:...
In the two uses, one in Turretin and one in JDRE (jus divinum regiminis ecclesiastici), how is the Greek, κατὰ θέσιν, being used? The both have it following the affirmation or the positive, what it is, side of a question.
Turretin. Second proposition: An absolute right in sacred things does not belong to the magistrate, but a limited. In what it does not consist, negatively (κατ' ἅρσιν)....
This question has nothing to do with being for or against vaccines from a health standpoint. This is an exercise in applying Theology to modern issues. In other words its a moral question. Here it goes....
I researched ingredients to common vaccines like the Measles. An ingredient called WI-38 is an example ingredient of several found in some vaccines like measles. Its basically cells from an...
