Christian Worldview This portion of the site focuses, not only upon how we are to talk about a Christian worldview, but how to put it into action.
Covenant Communion Dedicated to the discussion of covenant communion (paedocommunion) - by various writers. Is it biblical? If it is, then it ought to be practiced by Presbyterian and Reformed churches/denominations. We believe that our covenant children are members of Christ's church (His Body) and therefore ought to be treated as such. These articles will be for the defense of the practice. Come, let us reason together!

Calvinism: The Meaning And Use of the Term An article by the late reformed scholar, B.B. Warfield: "CALVINISM is an ambiguous term in so far as it is currently employed in two or three senses, closely related indeed, and passing insensibly into one another, but of varying latitudes of connotation.
How God Works in Men's Hearts This was excerpted from "Calvin's Institutes" (Vol. II, Book II, Chap. 4). Calvin gives a great defense and says: " it appears that man, while he sins of necessity, yet sins no less voluntarily. But, while he is bound in servitude to the devil, he seems to be actuated more by the devil's will than by his own."
Ideas and Actions Have Consequences We live in a society that does not think that people ought to have to face consequences for their actions or ideas. This is, naturally, wrong thinking.
Rockin' Doctrine: The Comforts of Calvinism A sermon by Pastor Steve Schlissel (Messiah's Congregation, Brooklyn, NY) from Habbakuk 3. Schlissel says: " Habakkuk is saying that there would be complete ruin of the land, and nothing that he put his hand to would bear fruit. Yet he would rejoice in God. What I am going to suggest to you today is that this is Calvinism, or that system called Calvinism, and that this is the only doctrine that can provide comfort and that it is what I call a 'rockin doctrine'."
