It is further demonstrated that James, in fact, offers a way of linking doctrinal teaching and ethical instruction.
This article views Calvinism as a theology that faithfully represents the teaching of the Bible.

The author also includes a discussion on the interpretation of such difficult Scriptures as Revelation 20.
This article examines the doctrine of the atonement of Christ as a teaching that has received a lot of attention and has been the subject of much debate in the past. At issue in this article is the Reformed claim that Christ died for only the elect (limited atonement).

The author attempts to answer these questions and many others associated with evolution and the geologic history. This is done through scientific analysis of biological and geological phenomena, especially as far as biological mutation is concerned.
What is the separated life? The author addresses this question by theological yet also practical reflections based on Scripture. Some of the important aspects of the separated life include separation from sin, from occasions of temptation to sin, and from the world. The author also addresses the matter of the use of things indifferent and the work of the Holy Spirit as it should be distinguished from the doctrines and commandments of men.
What is the evidence against evolution? This article begins with the biblical record and further engages in critical analysis of laws discovered in other disciplines, specifically the first and second laws of thermodynamics. These laws are then applied to the biblical witness as well as to naturally observable phenomena.

As the author continues with a defence of amillennialism over against postmillennialism, the argument turns to the amillennial view itself, which emphasizes the rule of Christ Jesus in the present age. Thus, this view is opposed to a specific time period of a literal 1000 years of Christ's rule, as advocated by many postmillennials.
This article engages with criticisms made by Bonhoeffer towards Karl Barth's theology of "Positivism of Revelation." In the analysis, it is also evident that there is need to properly understand the meaning of Bonhoeffer's expression, which can only be done through the careful study of his writings.
Citing some similarities between the book of Exodus and the Egyptian Tale of Sinuhe, some theologians have entertained the thought that Exodus is simply a literary work of art much along the lines of the tale of Sinuhe. The author disputes this thinking, citing both similarities and important differences between the two narratives.
What are the myths and the truths concerning the punishment of those in hell? The author answers this question by refuting wrong notions among theologians.

This article discusses the characteristics of a true church. It should be composed of those born again of the Spirit.
Creeds and doctrines of the church have been developing since the start of the church, and there is no reason they should not continue to be developed. However, the article contends that those who intend to come with such developments must understand that the creeds and doctrines we already have are a result of centuries of reflection. Whatever creed must be made, should reflect the truth of Scripture. The article also includes some critical analysis of modern forms of creeds and confessions.
Creeds, which are formal summaries of fundamental truths of religious belief, have been ignored in some Protestant churches, including Reformed Churches. The article cites ignorance of Scripture and laziness in paying attention to the doctrines in these creeds as some of the causes of this neglect. The article goes on to state why the creeds and standards are important as a part of the worship system of the church.
The author of this article engages the contentious issue of lack of unity and the presence of divisions in the church today.

The author also attacks what he calls extreme denominationalism and extreme unionism.
The author here takes time to explain the difference between faith and the righteousness that results from having faith in Jesus Christ. This is done chiefly by defining what faith is and what it is not. For example, faith is not righteousness, it is not Christ, nor satisfaction to God. Further, Christ himself as the atonement sacrifice is the one who is presented as the ground of our justification.
This article is in the form of a dialogue, and the discussion between the participants is focused on salvation that is based on one's contribution.

One main tenet of this movement was a focus on intellectual assent as a proof of faith rather than any emotional attachment to faith.
Who can stand before the holy God? This is the main question this article addresses. The inevitability of death is noted, as well as the fact that everyone will have to stand at the judgment before God. The rest of the article establishes the ground upon which one can stand and be acquitted. Hence, it focuses on justification by faith in Jesus Christ as well as a life of holiness.
In this article the subject of saving faith is investigated.

Finally, the issue of the works of faith that merit reward as indicated in Scripture is also discussed.
This article considers the phrase "justification by faith," with special emphasis on the word "alone." The study starts with a historical perspective, noting the great controversy that the word stirred up between the Roman Catholic and the Reformers. Those who contended against the use of that small word state that the word does not specifically occur with justification in Scripture, and therefore its use amounts to an addition to Scripture.
This article studies the phrase "justification by faith," focusing on the preposition “by.” This study is done from four perspectives: scriptural, theological, experiential, and polemical.
Is religious neutrality at all possible? Is there an actual position of neutrality that could be the beginning point of any two parties in the discussion of the verity of the gospel and Christianity?

Further, he surveys how the authority of the Spirit is seen to be part of the ministry of the Lord Jesus and involved in the life of a believer.
Spurgeon begins by defining what justification is, and how it can be distinguished from sanctification. Further, he argues that there must be proper grounds for justification. Then there must also be a means for man to have access to this justification. Finally, this justification when accessed should be manifest.
Kuyper discusses what he calls the calling of the regenerate or the calling to repentance in the order of salvation. It is a stage that follows the regeneration of the elect sinner, the quickening, endowment with faith and uniting with Jesus Christ. In the order of salvation this is the stage where the Word brings the sinner to repentance.
The author in this article looks at the representation of Christ's suffering for his people in the Passover lamb.

The various laws and regulations related to the sacrifice of this Passover lamb are also shown here to be reflected in the actual suffering of the Lamb of God.
The author observes the importance of the doctrine of total depravity, and thus the sinfulness of man in church history.

What does it mean to know God? What is the key to the knowledge of God? These are the questions that this article attempts to answer. Central to the answer is the divinity of Jesus Christ. The author also observes the effect of philosophical developments through time on the church's faith in the deity of Christ.
The evidence of the unabating effects of sin is dotted through history, and there is no sign that man's evil and sinful condition will ever improve, at least not in this age. This is where the article begins, and goes on to explain the corruption of the human nature as the result of man's revolt against God at the instigation of the devil. It describes this corruption as a state of total depravity, and considers its spiritual and moral consequences.
This article focuses on the coming together of the two natures of Christ, the human nature and the divine nature, for the purposes of mediation between God and man. The author says that the constitution of the person of Christ is of such a fundamental and vital concern that without believing it, one cannot be a Christian.
The doctrine of the resurrection of the body is one of the most neglected of the central doctrines of the Christian faith.

What must we make of these opposing positions and how must we understand the source of authority for the believer today? The article attempts to answer these questions.
It is important to take note of the human agency through which God gave his inspired Word. The main objection of the author of this article is against those who hold to the view that God dictated his Word to the writers of the biblical text.

The place and scope of induction and deduction in the task of ascertaining the truly biblical view of scriptural inspiration is a feature that has been debated at length. In this article these approaches are explained. The author then attempts to find out whether there is any other option besides strictly siding with one of these approaches.
The author laments that what he terms "solo scriptura" is gaining ascendancy over the traditionally confessed tenet of evangelicalism, sola Scriptura.

What should be the starting point in the salvation of man? With whom should our gospel start? In view of the fact that God elects his people unto salvation, can the church then sit back and wait, and can the sinner can be ignorant and complacent? These are the questions that this article attempts to answer.
The author explains that hyper-evangelism does not emphasize the aspect of God as lawgiver and judge. In other words, the truth of man's position before the law of God is simply ignored in the preaching. The consequences are discussed further in the article. Other observations are that it ignores the sovereignty and power of God in the dispensation of his grace, the glory of God in the salvation of a sinner, and the lurking danger of antinomianism in converts.
In this article the author chides much of what is called Christian worship today as being empty philosophical notions. The author explores worship based on the examples replete in the biblical text, such as in the Psalter, the Gospels, and other parts of the Bible.
The author discusses what is called "decisional regeneration," which refers to the simple requirement of a decision as proof that one is saved. The author notes the way that this method of evangelism has been applied with gross abuse in counselling, altar calls, and in preaching. Ultimately this teaching is traced to a theology that places the responsibility for salvation on man.
This article reviews a number of positions held on the nature of salvation. The article refutes the Roman Catholic accusation that the Reformation rejected all works of holiness and the need for moral transformation in the life of converts. Other unbiblical approaches to evangelism are antinomian elements that deny the necessity for commitment to Christ.
Berkhof studies some perversions of the gospel from the time of the early New Testament church to when Gnosticism took centre stage. In the early church he takes note of perversions such as those of the Nazarenes, the Ebionites, and the Elkesaites. He also examines Gnosticism, its origins, character, teachings, and historical significance.
The author provides a thorough examination of the relationship between the law and the gospel, and especially the role of the law in preaching. Critical in his argument is the fact that the law points to sin, but it does not justify, while the gospel proclaims the good news of God's grace. In this way the extent of the inability of any man to save himself is made clearer in view of the demands of the law.
The article deplores the weakened nature of today's evangelism. The author points out one important aspect of evangelism that has been ignored: this work is for the glory of God alone, not man. The article goes on to consider the nature of the gospel as something not independent of the law of God. In conclusion the author considers what God's people must do in view of the existing situation of evangelistic malpractice.
The author describes the word "revival" according to its scriptural use. The article goes further to study instances or moments in the biblical record where revival and reformation are discussed. Further, these concepts are studied within the context of church history. Then the discussion concludes by expressing the great need for revival in today's church.
Referring to the Pilgrim's Progress, the author argues for the virtue displayed by one of the characters, Valiant-for-Truth. This Christian characteristic is to be applied in the life of a believer, especially in the preaching of the gospel, as the believer witnesses to the salvation brought to the world by Christ. The characteristic also includes how a believer should handle confrontations with believers of a different theological persuasion.
This article rebukes how many churchmen misuse the word "revival," and it attempts to redefine what a real revival should look like. In doing this, the author refers to the book of Habakkuk and other Scriptures, and reflects on aspects such as truth, the involvement of God, and his initiative and timing.
The author discusses James Cameron's recent documentary, The Lost Tomb of Jesus, together with Simcha Jacobovici and Charles Pellegrino's The Jesus Family Tomb. Cameron reports on a tomb that has been unearthed in Jerusalem with familiar names, including Jesua, son of Joseph, Mary, and Mathew. The author refutes these conclusions and emphasizes the biblical testimony of the resurrection of Christ.
This article seeks to find answers to whether the Puritans were evangelistic in their preaching. Further it seeks to find out how they went about persuading souls to believe. It probes the nature of their confrontations, the language they used, and whether doctrines such as election, predestination, and particular redemption confined and restricted the scope of their evangelistic messages.
The author in this article embarks upon giving a brief survey on what is normally termed the doctrine of God. His discussion includes the description of God as the Infinite Spirit, the Redeemer of sinners, and the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
How can evil be compatible with the concept of a good God who is actively involved in and ruling this world? How does one find a place for a good God in a world where there are natural disasters? These are the questions that this article attempts to settle by analyzing the teaching on the providence of God.
This article considers the debate on various approaches to the study and practice of science. The author first describes the modernist's point of departure. Then the debate takes place between the Calvinist and the modernist approaches to scientific study, specifically in terms of scientific methodology.
This article presents a dialogue between actors of different faith convictions: one is an unbeliever, the next is Reformed, and the third is Roman Catholic. The discussions touch on aspects such as the authority of Scripture and proofs for the existence of God. At the end the author notes both positive and negative aspects of each position.
The article explains the practical implications of Calvinistic thought and truth in the life of a believer. In this explanation, the article points out that Calvinism should produce in the believer a deep acquaintance with his own sinfulness, an acquaintance with grace and forgiveness, utter submission before God, honest and Scriptural examination, and the biblical pursuit of practical holiness.
This article discusses the events that necessitated the Synod of Dort, which was mainly in response to the objections raised by Jacob Arminius against major points of the Protestant doctrines. The result was that the synod upheld the teachings of the Protestant confessions, including what later came to be known as the five points of Calvinism. These five points the author discusses in detail.
Who is God? This article attempts to answer this question by dwelling on the subject of the doctrine of God.
This article starts with a discussion on the relationship between the covenant of redemption and the covenant of grace, arguing that there is no material difference between them. He then focuses on the covenant of grace, refuting non-Reformed teachings that have emerged on this doctrine. The author emphasizes that this covenant follows the covenant of works in history, and that it does not do away with the responsibility of man.
John Calvin succinctly defined Christian piety as "that reverence joined with love of God which the knowledge of his benefits induces." Included in his many discussions on piety are terms such as faith, fear, reverence, love, and knowledge. The central themes of Calvin's piety were the honouring of God and being thankful to him. This article surveys Calvin's writings on piety and seeks to understand his view on the topic.
This article examines the objection often levelled against the Calvinistic doctrines of election and reprobation. The objection often raised is that these are inconsistent with the goodness of God. The article shows that these objections are unfounded, and that the Arminian doctrines make salvation impossible by denying that it is by grace and also by works.
It is in the Reformed worldview that a comprehensive Christian perspective of life can be set over in opposition to the teachings of unbelievers. The Reformed view of education is set up in such a way that it can overcome the challenge of the wisdom of the world. This article explains this matter from a number of points of view. Comparisons are made between the Reformed view of education and that of non-Reformed Christians, or of the non-Christian.
The cross supercedes a myriad ineffective sacrifices. It is a single event that will never be repeated again, yet it vindicates God's choice of Israel and God as creator, and it leads to the defeat of heavenly powers and the redemption of the physical creation. These aspects are explained in detail in the article.
The death of Christ was not accidental. Rather, it was a definite and certain event determined by God in his eternal purpose. The author of this article explains this assertion in detail from Scripture.
This treatise considers the discussion of the decrees of God between two major groups: those who prefer supralapsarianism and those who opt for infralapsarianism. The author traces this controversy to the struggle between Augustine and Pelagius. There were strong views for and against the two options.
This writing seeks to find the relation between the wrath of God and the atonement. While God was expressing his wrathful and just punishment of man's sin on Christ, was his love excluded? The answer in this article says that it was not, but was being demonstrated in Christ's atonement for his people.
This article relates the teaching of the perseverance of the saints to another Calvinistic doctrine, the doctrine of election. It explains further this relation, noting the role of man and the role of God in the process of perseverance, the possibility of backsliding, the danger of relying on external conduct as a sign of election, and the insecure ground of belief on which Arminianism stands.
As the author carefully explains what is entailed in the doctrine of unconditional election, he also attempts to answer the following question: how can believers say that the gospel must be preached in all the world, that men must be born again of the Spirit through the preaching of the gospel, and at the same time hold on to the doctrine of the election?
The article discusses the doctrine of election in Scripture. It carefully describes what is to be understood of this doctrine. The article then proceeds to answer different questions that confront believers and unbelievers with regard to election.
Bavinck discusses the views of supralapsarianism and infralapsarianism, which are all attempts to describe the order in which God made the decision to predestine man to salvation, permit the fall, and provide a mediator for the atonement of the elect. The author finds fault with both views and discusses an alternative way of viewing and studying God's decree.
This article discusses the doctrine of the perseverance of the saints, and its connection to the practical questions and challenges in a believer's life.
The article is an excerpt from a sermon by the author, focusing on the interpretation of Romans 11:7-10, which speaks about the hardening of the Israel. The author intimates that God has the power to judge his people by making them obstinate to the gospel and therefore exclude them from the benefits of salvation.
The author speaks on the foreknowledge of God as it applies to the doctrine of atonement. The article rejects the assertion that God foreknew who would believe and therefore predestined such people to salvation. The author redefines the foreknowledge of God, understanding it in the context of the decree of God.
The author examines the meaning of the Greek word agorazo from 2 Peter 2:1, a text quoted by some to argue the case for universal atonement. Then the article briefly looks at the misuse of agorazo, to show the fallacy involved in the universalist's argument. The article ends with a fresh look at the verse in light of the discussion, to attempt to offer a better understanding of its meaning.
The article deals with the subject of how one should understand the extent of the atonement of Christ. The article first deals with how to understand the use of particular language in particular contexts. Secondly, it appeals to the hermeneutical rule that Scripture should interpret Scripture. Further, Scripture should be compared to Scripture so that similarities occasioned by the use of merely different words should be noted.
This article begins by outlining the original threefold distribution of the topics embraced in Christian theology: (1) relations of a rational creature to its Creator and Ruler, (2) the covenant of works, and (3) the covenant of grace. Then the author goes on to focus on different views of how primarily two groups of theologians give the order of decrees within the scheme of redemption: supralapsarians and sublapsarians.
This article dwells on the redemption of Christ, and emphasizes the particularity of Christ's redemption (the Reformed view) as opposed to the Arminian understanding that Christ died to make salvation possible for man. Spurgeon then goes on to elaborate on the greatness of this redemption when considering the heinousness of the guilt of the saved, the sternness of divine justice, the nature of the sacrificial price Christ paid, and the vast number of those for whom this redemption was made.
The author argues that while the sacrifice of Christ accomplished the full redemption of all the elect, there are certain benefits that come to sinners in general because of that sacrifice. God may show pity to those whom he is determined not to save. While God purposely designed Christ's sacrifice for the redemption of all whom he intended to save, he yet holds forth the expiation of Christ to the whole world as a demonstration of his kindness.
Did Christ offer himself up as a sacrifice for all people, or only for a limited number? The author replies that the atonement of Christ was sufficient to save the whole human race, but was efficient to save only the elect. The Arminians, however, argue that the atonement has made it possible for all men to cooperate with the divine grace, and thus come to salvation if they will believe. The author argues that if the Arminian view is right, then millions of those for whom Christ died have been lost, which means that his sacrifice could not save them.
In this article, the author puts forward a strong case for studying theological doctrines in such a way that each individual doctrine falls within a particular larger theological field. He thus proposes that the doctrine of the atonement should be defended as falling within the covenant of grace. In this regard, the gospel call is made to everyone outside, but the one who really calls, Jesus Christ, does so from within the covenant of grace.
The article deals with the doctrine of limited atonement. The main texts considered include Jesus' high-priestly prayer in John 17:1-13 and the angel Gabriel's announcement of the birth of Christ in Matthew 1:21. The author shows that Christ did not die on the cross for every man that ever lived but for the specific people chosen by God to believe and enjoy the benefits of salvation. This teaching also relates to the teaching of predestination.
In this review of the theology of Charles Finney, the author focuses on his doctrine of justification. He takes note of Finney’s strange teaching that justification is a governmental pardon and not a judiciary acquittal. There are also multiple conditions for justification, according to Finney, and not simply faith as the Protestants claim. His view of atonement undermines the centrality of the cross of Christ as the one single act of God in atoning for sin.
The author contends that the doctrine of predestination is the one that exalts God the most, for faith depends on God's eternal choice. The author also faces difficulties with the argument from Pelagians and Arminians that the Calvinistic understanding of predestination makes God the author of sin. The author answers this by ascribing to God abilities and purposes that are beyond human understanding. He argues in the end that the doctrine of predestination ascribes to God the greatest supremacy and glory.
