Covenant Family Wedding

As we consider how to honor Christ in our wedding, we find this example of interest:
"Everyone was up early on Saturday morning. We were so very excited to be attending the wedding of David and Nadia! This was the first Covenant Family Wedding (I will share more about that soon) we have ever attended. We arrived at the wedding around 9:30 am. Teaching began around 10 am and lasted until noon. After a short break, David and Nadia exchanged vows and and David introduced us to his new wife, Nadia Joy Botkin. Grace Reformation Church provided lunch and a wonderful afternoon of fellowship was had by all." ~ Large Family Blog | Home Schooling | Adoption | Our Full House Blog

Presidents Before George Washington

The first American president, Peyton Randolph wrote two letters to two people in two different languages at the same time.
Once, when he was wrestling through his Bible preparing for a serious legal case, around 2AM his wife asked, “What are you doing?”
“Preparing for my case.”
“How can you prepare for your case with the Bible?”
"How will I use the Bible in life? That is how I will use it in my argument."

Humanism Vs. Christianity

The State uses regulations and mandates to establish its humanistic plan of salvation. Rushdoony's insightful commentary is as relevant today as it was decades ago.

Dispensationalism is in a meltdown.

John McArthur in a Revelation sermon said, "There will be worship there [in a rebuilt temple], such as the world has never seen." Setting up the sacrificial system again with Christ on an [earthly] throne.

But Jesus said, "The time will come when you will not worship here or in Jerusalem but you shall worship the father in spirit and in truth."

Though Dr. McArthur calls himself "a leaky dispensationalist," as he zealously advocates dispensationalism worldwide. He is an evangelical voice in the world with 40 million sermon downloads.

This leads to a huge unqualified evangelical support for national Israel. This idolatry is inflaming the whole middle east and leading us to another world war. Christians are right in step, eliding themselves with the American right, the Israel lobby, the neoconservatives - all of which now control our foreign policy of endless middle east wars. Iran is next, even as we see Israel continuing its anti-Iran public relations campaign.

Dispes see no future, naturally fall for birth control and few children. John McArthur encourages birth control too (with prayer), stating that there is no way to know if the birth control pill is an abortifacient. [in his book Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong.]

Some congregations go so far as to discourage children from the worship service. God required even the suckling babes to hear the words of the law. This leads to birth imploding churches with no full size vans in the parking lot.

Why Are Some Believers Converting To Roman Catholicism?

As a Protestant missionary, I recognize that while we have serious differences and disagreements, there is also common ground, which both Protestants and Roman Catholics can agree on. We wholeheartedly endorse and believe The Apostles Creed, The Nicean Creed and The Athanasian Creed as foundational statements, which all Christians must accept if they are to be called Christians at all. Additionally, we look to the Church fathers, including Augustine, Tertullian, Origen, Cyprian, Athanasius and Polycarp. In fact, the Reformers respected, quoted from, referred to and accepted the Church fathers as their own.

In addition, many of the saints and heroes recognized by the Roman Catholic church are also loved by Protestants as our own heroes of the Faith, including the great missionaries: Patrick, Boniface, Francis of Assissi, and many others as examples of dedicated Christians who are an inspiration to us all.

As Protestants we oppose Catholicism, but we are not anti-the-Catholic-people. In fact, it must be admitted that shamefully many so-called Protestants do not even hold to the basic minimum standards which all true Christians worldwide, through the centuries, have accepted, such as the doctrine of the Trinity, the Bible as the infallible Word of God, the doctrine of Eternal Judgment in hell, and much more.

Roman Catholics frequently are our allies in the pro-life, pro-family, pro-moral movements, standing up for pre-born babies against the violence of abortion, opposing homosexual attempts to pervert the very definition of marriage and the fight against pornography and prostitution and a host of other social and ethical issues.
