A contemplation of all things church... and a desire for an increasingly pure church reformed by the word of God.

The next time I'm asked what it means to be "Reformed"...
The next time you get that very puzzled or impatient, frustrated look when you tell someone you're "Reformed" theologically, remember this helpful definition and discussion from Tim Challies. It's worth the read, and worth using as a primer with folks who aren't quite clear on such categories.
I love the Lord because He first loved me. I love His people because He has given me a new heart. I have received God's favor in the form of my wife, Kristie. And together we know His blessing through three children. I was once a Muslim, and by God's grace I have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. By God's unfathomable grace I am a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in which I hope to serve Him until He returns or calls me home!
