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
I see that this 3-volume set of books (originally published about 10 years ago) has been re-issued as a 1-volume, approximately 760-page hardback. I think it's been re-typeset and has consecutive pagination - in other words, it's not just the original three books bound together unchanged.
It also has a new subtitle: "A Systematic Exposition of the Westminster Confession of Faith."
Greetings again PB friends,
As I mentioned in an earlier thread here, I attended a worship service last Lord's Day at a Presbyterian Church (PCA) and the congregation celebrated the baptism of several of its member's children. My question this time has to do with the baptismal rite...
Grace and peace to everyone in the Puritan board community. I am a preaching Elder at a Reformed Ministry in N.Y.C. I am married over 20 years and have 7 children. The time is now to connect with other Christians who are mature in their faith. This is why I have decided to join the Board. As our Nation and "Churches" continue their spiral into apostasy, I pray Covenant communities would be...

It just so happened to be "Baptism Sunday" (their term not mine) and among those baptized was a pair of siblings who looked to be between the ages of 11-15. The pastor said these two were being baptized into the church based on the faith of their parents and used the household baptism...
I am not asking this in reference to myself, but the topic came up recently.
May an ordained minister, without sin, resign from pastoral ministry altogether in order to pursue a different calling (lumberjack, gentleman farmer, banker, etc.)?
This is assuming the decision is not a result of providential circumstances such as illness, financial crisis, or inability to find a call. It also...
My wife sent me a conversation between herself and my almost 4yr old son. We are a bit saddened by how it ended but we know God is faithful, and at least my son is telling the truth and not faking anything. We do catechism questions with him every day and a devotional every night before bed.
“C” is my son, “me” is my wife.
c: remember that song “wash away my sin” at church?...
