“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering” (Hebrews 10:23)
The Presbyterian Church in Scotland has long associated itself with a Confession of Faith as its...

I recently read an article that had made an argument (made many times by others) that goes something like this:
"The EP proponents singing metrical Psalms in English are not singing the inspired Psalms, because they are not singing the original Hebrew."
So, I decided to put this in perspective.
"The bible proponents reading The Bible in English are not reading the inspired Bible, because...
What do I make of the statements, ""Faith was not the condition of the Mosaic Covenant"?
The fuller quote by a defender of 1689 Federalism is:
"...faith was not the condition of the MC. In fact, Paul contrast the difference between faith and works in Romans 10. The MC said do and live while they NC says believe and live.
No member of the CoG can be eternally condemned as a covenant breaker...
A pretty difficult personal problem here:
I am leaving southern West Virginia in the fall of 2018 to attend Westminster (about an 8 hour drive). However, at that time the woman I intend to marry would still have one more year left until she completes her undergrad in education. If she were to remain in WV during that year, she would come out of college with absolutely no debt. However, if she...

Can you lead me simply through the proof-texts?...
There are many ways we can respond to the question of "Why dont you watch Game of Thrones?"
"That is wicked and evil!"
"I wish I could, but it makes my mind wonder"
"The way they created the sets and the wardrobe is brilliant and beautiful, but the way they arouse passions is dangerous"
How can we respond in such a way that we are the salt of the earth and not just "anti"?
Am studying the differences in administration between the old and new covenant manifestations of the Covenant of Grace. Probably my last will be on this aspect but it's the aspect I understand the least. This is partly connected (or doesn't have to be) with the aspect of mostly Jews in the OT to all nations in the NT, but it's more than that.
Some describe this as the gifts of the Spirit...
