Remembering the Reformation of 1517

Remembering the Reformation of 1517

Here We Stand The great sixteenth-century church Reformation was so significant an event that virtually every church today is affected by that history, as well as its reforms in doctrine and life.

October 15, 2020 Standard Bearer preview article
The appeal of the book of Jonah, for this writer, lies in part in the character of Jonah. Disinclined to preach as sent, disobedient, grudging the repentance of those to whom he preached, Jonah shows himself to be a man “subject to like passions as we are” (James 5:17). Yet the prophet was used by God to save His people and to be, in history, an example of the power of God’s Word and the wideness of God’s purpose, even to be a pre-figure of the death and burial of our Savior. That “weakest means fulfill His will” (Psalter # 15; Psalm 8) is one of the minor lessons of the book, a lesson that continues to be taught in the use God makes of His people still today. May God so use each of us, poor sinners that we are, in His service and for His glory, whatever place and calling we have in His kingdom. Read More

Even Thanksgiving Day seems to be, for many, little more than a day to “eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” Let it not be so for the believer. Read More

The Reformed Baptism Form: A Commentary explains each part of the baptism form, setting forth and applying the covenant of grace, the foundation of baptism. As the author wrote, “The ardent desire of my heart is that…many people reading...
