What does Scripture say about the practice of head coverings? How should Reformed Baptists think about the practice today?
Faith like a Child
“But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.” (Luke 18:16-17, KJV) Introduction What... Continue Reading →
Is Christian Nationalism Biblical?
The church of the Lord Jesus Christ is made up of the citizens of His kingdom which He has purchased to Himself by His blood. This truth must affect our view of the world around us, as it is by this truth that we live as pilgrims in a foreign land.

The Marriage Idol
There is a trend growing within the jungles of social media Reformed theology; it began really with the Reformation and the marriage of church and state (see the Westminster Confession of Faith 23.3 and 24.2) continued from Rome among Protestants. This trend is placing marriage, and more specifically the “family unit” on a dangerously high... Continue Reading →
Why the Fuss?
With the issues that face the church, are the historic stands for biblical baptism and the Lord's Supper unwise for us to take today? Over the past couple of months I have been seeing a disturbing trend of thought with subsequent declarations within conservative and reformed circles of western evangelicalism. These declarations go something like... Continue Reading →
