  • A New “Must Read” for Reformed Christians

    from Keith Mathison Oct 25, 2008 Category: Articles

    For the last several years, I have been hearing rumors of a book project that was being developed by Dr. James T. Dennison. According to the "word on the street," Dennison was working on a multi-volume work that would include most or all of the Reformed confessions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in English translation. Some of these confessions have long been available in English, but many have never before been translated. Occasionally, I would see references being made to this work on various blogs and forums, but I did not know when it would be complete. Keep Reading

    Vanity of vanities! All is vanity. So begins the book of Ecclesiastes, one of the more difficult books of Scripture to interpret and apply.

    from Alex Chediak Sep 27, 2008 Category: Articles

    After singing six verses of The Church's One Foundation, Dr. John MacArthur gave a message on the question Is Jesus the Only Way?  John noted that, in our day, the exclusivity of Jesus Christ is not an obvious truth for many professing evangelicals.  When he began his ministry, John had not anticipated such an attack on the gospel from within the church itself. Today, an ambiguous gospel is being promoted by many.  But we cannot get this issue wrong without eternal consequences.  True Christians have always believed that unless you hear and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ you cannot be saved.
