More RFPA books have arrived in the Philippines!

In early August we sent a shipment of books to the Philippines—seven large boxes. Last week we received an email from Sharon Kleyn, wife of missionary Rev. Daniel Kleyn:

“We received the big shipment! I managed to get it all put away in one day and we managed to fit it in our shelves. (It helps that we recently bought two more big shelves.) Everything was in great shape.  Thanks for all the work of putting it together and getting it here. The shelves are jam-packed full, but I still would like to place a new order. By the time this new order arrives we will have sold a bunch again, I’m sure.”

The next order of three large boxes will be picked up from our warehouse on November 2.

“They received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily…” Acts 17:11b

The Importance of Doctrine

Doctrine is not highly regarded anymore. In many evangelical churches there is such ignorance of doctrine that even the fundamentals of Christianity are not well understood. Even in churches that remain faithful in their teaching and preaching, there is often little interest in learning and understanding doctrine. The youth are, for the most part, bored by it, and their elders are content with a superficial knowledge of the doctrines of the Reformed faith.

Very often the symptom of this lack of doctrine is a constant agitation for more “practical” preaching and teaching along with a greater emphasis on liturgy and on the other parts of the worship service until the sermon is all but squeezed out. On the part of the preachers themselves, one finds less and less biblical exposition and more and more illustration, storytelling, and entertainment.

READ KNOW GROW
“Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine” 1 Timothy 4:13.

#ReadRFPAbooks

“In his inscrutable wisdom God determined from all eternity that he would be revealed to his people through the Bible, his written revelation, the entirety of which we new dispensation believers now have in our hands. And the Bible as a written revelation must be read. God could have revealed himself savingly in Jesus Christ through some other means, but he determined that he would be revealed through a written revelation that must be read. That the revelation of God comes to us in a book with words that are written and must be read is the proof that reading has a significant place in God’s covenant… The necessity and urgency of reading in the covenant is indisputable and could not be emphasized too strongly” (Rev. Brian Huizinga, Standard Bearer, Vol 90, Issue 6, 12/15/2014).

The world we live in is filled with digital technology that can easily distract us and quickly consume much of our time. Using digital technology requires very little effort of our minds, shrinking our attention spans and discouraging us from reading anything which is not brief or easily skimmed. But we are called to read scripture and good, Reformed literature—reading that requires deep and critical thinking. Therefore we must constantly remind one another to read! We must encourage each other to persevere in our reading! May we be a people who understand the importance of reading good Reformed literature and who actively encourage our friends and family members to read! See our complete book selection at rfpa.org.

Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life: Reading

The Bible commends reading. Reading is a discipline of the Christian life.

Reading as a spiritual discipline is not the same as reading in general. Certainly, reading books on history, science, wars, animals, and economics (the list goes on) is to be recommended, providing they are wholesome. But reading as a spiritual discipline is more focused on explicitly Christian literature, Reformed literature—in short, biblical literature: the Standard Bearer, Beacon Lights, Reformed Free Publishing Association (RFPA) publications, and so many other books and periodicals that promote our growth in godliness. Of course, we read the Bible, too, and that ought to be our main book—but the reading of scripture has been treated in past articles on devotions.

Why do we read? Consider three reasons...

Also, a few reminders about reading are in order...
