  • LOL. Fortunately, I don't have a taste for lobster. I tried one in Maine once and only ate one small bite of the tail before deciding I didn't like lobster. At least I tried it. (Scavenging is one of the two reasons I don't eat catfish.) I like crab cakes though with a good ale on the side.

  • It strongly appears so: "Although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men unexcusable;[1] yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God, and of His will, which is necessary unto salvation.[2] Therefore it pleased the Lord, at sundry times, and in divers manners, to reveal...

  • I believe that everything Reformed is covered by the 1646 Westminster Confession, the Short Catechism, and the Large Catechism. The WCF covers Church Governance, Cessationist, anti-Christian Papistry, Baptism, civil government, and such. I don't know about EP, but that is at least covered in the Large Catechism under the questions about the 2nd Commandment. In short, those 3...

  • They may have been the first Covenanters to arrive, but they were not the first Reformeds to arrive. (I am not sure if the Hugenots had a Covenant; however, they were the original Calvinists under Calvin in France.) The Hugenots scattered just after the Edict of Nantes. Some went to Geneva with their founder Calvin, some to Britain, some to Beligium, some to Africa, and some to the...

  • That would be very helpful for me as well since I, as one may see from my answer to Jerry, am hung up on understanding the civil part of the SLC. The theological part, I've no problem with.

  • I tend to agree very much with what you said. Those arguments you listed (in addition to a recent encounter with the LDS) is why I changed a month ago to a Cessationist position and several months ago to a Pedobaptist position (a sharp 180 since before then I was a staunch anti-pedobaptist and condemned pedobaptism as "damnable heresy"). I am trying to get my hand on the book "The...

  • What about those churches who are charistmatic in their belief of spiritual gifts yet Reformed in everything else? The present church I attend (though thinking about leaving due to recent personal reformation) describes itself "essentially Reformed with a charismatic dimension" and recognises that its teaching (Doctrines of Grace, Sovereignty of God, etc.) is Reformed (i.e...

  • Another example. My native Virginia started in 1607 (36-37 years before the SLC). However, it is still bound for it along with the other 13 colonies remained part of GB until 1776, and so, the Great Commonwealth (Va.) was part of GB during the 1643-1644 ratification of the SLC. And the Great Commonwealth is part of the SLC just like any of the other 13 original colonies, which I...

  • Perhaps my posts regarding Ireland would be helpful on why it was bound. As we know from history, the US colonies was part of GB and assented to the whole government of GB. Since GB through its monarch and its authorised representatives (Commissioners) gave their affirmation on behalf of the Government, GB assented to and thus commited itself to the SLC. So, the SLC became part of...

I printed the SLC and read it more closely to see what the Covenant was actually promising to God. I am trying to understand what it means in its talking about the King and the kingdoms especially about the King's...
