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
Dear brothers and sisters,
I would like to share with you some of the struggles in my life right now.
For a long time now I have dealt with much fear and anxiety regarding my spiritual state.
For years, from around age 10 to ~24, I struggled with assurance of salvation. I was plagued with a dread of not really being saved, and asked God to save me 100s of times. During the same time, my...
(Discussion on Social Justice using clips from a talk at Reformed seminary by Dr. Mika Edmondson, an OPC minister, as discussion starters.)
^ ^ ^
This is interesting - near the end during the coverage of the q&a portion I believe a student asks about using a theonomous context to promote social justice in the church which I perceive morphed into a concern of a promotion of a type of non...
This book is both an expansion upon and condensing of Clark’s earlier A Christian View of Men and Things.

Although, I am in need of one or two sermon series through this magisterial portion of Scriptures. With that being said, please suggest to me something other than Martyn Lloyd-Jones. I dearly treasure his ministry but I would like something a bit shorter. Plus, I...
This extract from John Owen's Excercitations on the Sabbath may be of interest to PB members:
John Owen: gender egalitarianism is against nature
I am increasingly disillusioned with the modern complementarian movement, as it tends towards biblicism and ignores the...
Are any PB members able to recommend a solid reformed church in the Columbus, Ohio, area?
In a few months, I'll be moving to Columbus for a new job. I lived there temporarily last year. During that time, I found a church that I like. It is non-denominational and does not overtly claim the "reformed" label. But, the preaching is excellent. The church website also includes recommendations for...
