So I have heard frequently about the three uses of the law from reformed folk. The three uses are phrased differently but below is a common explanations of the uses.
Its first function is to be a mirror reflecting to us both the perfect righteousness of God and our own sinfulness and shortcomings. As Augustine wrote, “the law bids us, as we try to fulfill its requirements, and become wearied in our weakness under it, to know how to ask the help of grace.” The law is meant to give knowledge...
Whenever the argument comes up about infant baptism, it will always come down to their CT, for they rely on the OT for their support of infant baptism. There is relatively little in the NT that supports their position. It seems to me that the Presbyterian position is only possible with their CT.
A friend of mine said something along the lines of that he can't see how God can change from having a strong inclusion for children within the OT covenant, to not in the NT.
How would you answer...

Mat 7:6 KJV Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
"The church (Roman Catholic Church) bitterly opposed it: "By this translation, the Scriptures have become vulgar, and they are more available to lay, and even to women who can read, than they were to learned scholars, who have a high intelligence. So the pearl of the gospel is scattered and trodden underfoot by...
The following quote is from D.A. Waite's book "Defending the King James Bible"
THREE SUPERIOR KING JAMES OLD TESTAMENT TRANSLATORS.
1. The Accomplishments of Lancelot Andrews. First we will consider the Old Testament translators of the KING JAMES BIBLE and the accomplishments of Dr. Lancelot Andrews. He was the president or director of the Westminster group that translated twelve books altogether, from Genesis to 2 Kings. That was the task of Company One.

When should a church member be allowed to vote?
So I'm looking for any advice you guys have from experience when out knocking doors. Particularly, I'm looking for the best approaches to introducing dialogue, getting the topic on salvation, and the best ways to keep the interest of the person you're talking to.
What I've realized thus far about soul winning is that I have to almost coax a person into listening, which causes me to feel pushy afterward. And on the opposite side of that spectrum, if I don't be pushy at all, I...
So there are a number of Baptist Church's that have in effect rejected Believers Baptism. They have adopted age requirements on the person before baptism. Often age would coincide with what is considered to be an adult(16-18). So promote Adult Baptism, thereby going against the very theology of Baptists. Baptists go by scripture "believe and be baptised" no mention of age/adulthood in scripture.
To refuse to give Baptism on the basis of their created restrictions, for those who have...
As I was reading the scriptures the other day I came across an interesting portion and seeing I've been studying what I'll call the weakness of Calvinistic teachings....this one item stood out to me. The story is from Luke 18:9-14
