Redemption Accomplished and Applied- A Sermon on Ruth 4sacramentalpiety

Mon, 27 Jan 2014 19:50:49 +0000

A friend of mine recently asked if I would post the manuscript of a sermon I recently preached on Ruth  4.  I preached a series of sermons on the book of Ruth in 2013 and will make the manuscripts available throughout the coming weeks.  I was initially very hesitant about making these manuscripts public since […](image)

Protology and Eschatology: Lutheran vs. Reformedsacramentalpiety

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 21:33:50 +0000

As I have read through Herman Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics, I’ve noticed and appreciated both his respect for the Lutheran tradition and his theological sensitivity to some of the important theological differences between the Lutheran and Reformed churches.  Bavinck provides a helpful challenge to the pan-confessional thesis that the differences between the Lutheran and Reformed , especially in […](image)

A Summary of R.L. Dabney’s View of the Lord’s Suppersacramentalpiety

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 01:08:06 +0000

In light of the fact that most of my historical study of the sacraments, particularly the Lord’s Supper, has been confined to Calvin, the Westminster Standards, and John Williamson Nevin and the Mercersburg theology, I thought it might be time to examine the views of important Reformed figures with whom I disagree on this subject.

Never Complain As Long as Christ Is Thy FriendsacramentalpietyFile:Thomas Watson (Puritan).jpg

A Christian hath that which may make him content. 1. Hath not God given thee Christ? in him there are “unsearchable riches;” (Ep. 3. 8) he is such a golden mine of wisdom and grace, that all the saints and angels can never dig to the bottom. As Seneca said to his friend Polybius, never complain […](image)

Note:  While I haven’t posted in a long time, I thought I’d put this up since the concerns of this short essay I wrote for my doctrine of the church class address some of the issues this blog has sought to address throughout the years.  I didn’t have near enough time to work on this […](image)

The Hypostatic Union and the Salvation of Mankind in Cyril of Alexandria’s Third Epistle To Nestoriussacramentalpiety

Wed, 07 Dec 2011 01:27:42 +0000

Since I thought this topic might be relevant to the concerns of this site, and since I haven’t really utilized this blog in a while, I thought I might post a paper I just wrote on the Christology of St. Cyril of Alexandria and its closely related soteriological concerns. To get an idea of what […](image)

A former classmate of mind posted this magnificent article on his facebook wall a couple of months ago.  Since I’m a huge Dr. Seuss fan, have been since my childhood, and now have a son whose affection for Dr. Seuss seems to exceed mine, I read this article and really put my finger on why […](image)

A Great Reply To John Piper’s Misplaced Analogysacramentalpiety

Sun, 10 Apr 2011 02:20:18 +0000

My friend Wes White has provided an excellent analysis of John Piper’s recent attempt to understand Muslim reactions to public burnings of the Qur’an.  This is of particular interest to me since I live in Rochester, MN which has one of the largest Somali populations in the United States.  Wes does a great job of […](image)

A friend of mine has been asking me for a while to compile some of the more important aspects of Calvin’s doctrine of union with Christ and its relationship to our ongoing union and communion with him in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.  This subject was again brought up recently by some of the […](image)

“Put Your Heart Into Your Studies…”sacramentalpiety

Fri, 08 Apr 2011 02:05:20 +0000

In all its branches alike, theology has as its unique end to make God known:  the student of theology is brought by his daily task into the presence of God, and is kept there.  Can a religious man stand in the presence of God, and not worship?  It is possible, I have said, to study even theology in a […](image)
