Presbyterian Church Government In Action

Posted


Biblical Church Government by Kevin Reed (Free)

"This is the best short statement [of Presbyterian principles of church government] we have ever seen," noted the Banner of Truth magazine.


The Presbyterian is, in point of government, the only apostolic church. - Thomas Witherow, The Apostolic Church, Which Is It? (Free Online Book) 

The Apostolic Church, Which Is It? by Thomas Witherow (Free Online Book)

... and the church is a true visible church in the wilderness... which yet wanted [lacked-GB] circumcision and the passover forty years in the wilderness (Josh 5:5-7), this proves that there is a true visible church, where Christ is, and yet wanteth the ordinary seals, Baptism and the Lord's Supper." - Samuel Rutherford, Survey of the Survey of that Summe of Church Discipline, 1658, p. 17, as cited in Greg Barrow's book The Covenanted Reformation Defended and with navigation.

What Is the Real Meaning of Christmas?


All human inventions which are set up to corrupt the simple purity of the Word of God, and to undo the worship which he demands and approves, are true sacrileges, in which the Christian man cannot participate without blaspheming God, and trampling his honour underfoot. - John Calvin

Herein Calvin maintains the sinfulness of outward conformity to false worship. Dealing with a major problem of his day, Calvin shows that false worship should never be tolerated or participated in (even by your bodily presence), no matter what the cost -- whether it be persecution, exile, or death.

Fall Of the Papacy and Islam (Revelation 11) by Jim Dodson (Free MP3 and PDF)


Islam is losing ground fast in many nations. For example,in Africa, "... every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed. From what I have heard from reliable sources, six million may be too low.Reliable accounts say that one hundred thousand Africans convert to Christianity per day, though not all of them come from Islam. - "Six Million African Muslims Convert to Christianity Each Year?", emphases added

PASTOR GREG L. PRICE REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE

  

Pastor Greg Price Reviews & Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive"I was one of those who had profited much from using the plethora of out-of-print Reformation materials offered by Still Waters Revival Booksin the 62 CDs (Puritan CDs and Reformation CDs) for a number of years in  my ministry -- works that I could only have found in select libraries (usually hundreds of miles away from my residence).

 

With the CDs, it took a little while to go to the index of each set, locate the documents I needed, and then find the correct CD. Of course, the time was always well spent in finding that particular document that I needed.

 

However, now that I have the Puritan Hard Drive, I am able to use my time much more efficiently in finding that particular document I need by quickly searching for it and finding it in a matter of seconds. It's like going from "dial up" to "high-speed" Internet!

 

And for all of those documents that have a font that are in block letters, I am able tosimply cut and paste from the Puritan Hard Drive to my own document with ease.

 

Amazing surprises do come in small packages!

 

If you want to understand Reformed theology (i.e., the whole counsel of God) thePuritan Hard Drive is unsurpassed, outside the Bible itself. The First and Second Reformations gave us the most faithful Scriptural teaching and preaching since the time of the Apostles, and there is no other resource, outside Scripture itself, where you can find so much of God's truth as in the Puritan Hard Drive.

 

May the Lord continue to use this most profitable tool to promote a Third Reformation that encompasses the whole world (Isaiah 2:2-4)!"

 

Greg L. Price (Author, Theologian, Covenanted Presbyterian Pastor, USA) Free online books, MP3s and videos by Greg Price and at Sermonaudio (SWRB considers Greg Price to be the most doctrinally sound preacher alive today, because he holds completely to theoriginal Westminster Standards and all the biblical attainments of the Second or Covenanted Reformation.) 

 

"Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing." - Philippians 3:16, which applies just as much to the family, the church and the state, as it does to the individual.

PASTOR BRAIN SCHWERTLEY REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE  

 

250x250-Faded-Schwertley-PHD-Quote.jpg"I would like to commend our brothers at Still Waters Revival Books for putting together the most complete collection of classic and rare Puritan and Covenanter works.

  

We should rejoice to see so many long out of print works finally available in an easily affordable and searchable format. No longer do we solely have to wait for expensive reprints to trickle out one at a time, year by year.

  

Every scholar, pastor, elder and professing Christian should take a great interest in thePuritan Hard Drive, for it sets before us the golden age of Protestant piety, preaching and scholarship. Everyone should benefit from the labors of these dear, departed saints."

JERRY JOHNSON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE   


250x250-Faded-Nicene-Council-Jerry-Johnson-Blue.jpg"If you search the Internet for Reformed and Puritan works you will inevitably see a banner for a product called the Puritan Hard Drive. I often thought, "why would I want to purchase a hard drive when so much of the information (probably) contained on it could be easily found with a free search on the Internet?" Was I ever wrong!


The Puritan Hard Drive is the best resource money can buy.

  

It is easy, simple to use and the search feature cut down my time searching web pages that had absolutely nothing to do with the query I typed into the search engine. Not to mention a lot of the material is not accessible on the Internet.


To have so many books and articles at my fingers-tips is both truly amazing and a blessing.The Puritan Hard Drive just added thousands of volumes that I never could afford, nor store, to my library.


If you, like me, love the Puritans and Reformed theology, then the Puritan Hard Driveis simply a resource that you cannot live without."

PASTOR W. J. MENCAROW REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE  

250x250-Faded-Mencarow-Puritan-Hard-Drive-Quote-2.jpg"The Puritan Hard Drive is the must have digital learning device for Puritan and Reformed studies.

Nothing like it has ever been available before!

If you don't have it you are almost certainly not learning as much as you could about God, or growing in grace at a pace that the Puritan Hard Drive, by the grace of God, facilitates.

There is no other way to get such easy, convenient and inexpensive access to so many great works from the best Reformation and Puritan preachers and teachers, past and present --  and the study software on thePuritan Hard Drive is out of this world in terms of usefulness!

If necessary, sell what you have (that does not draw you closer to God) to get the Puritan Hard Drive, and prayerfully use it until you become, by the Lord's sovereign and sanctifying grace, the most extraordinary Christian you can be (for His glory!)."

W.J. Mencarow (Author, Pastor of Reformation Church, Boerne, Texas [San Antonio area] with free MP3 sermons on Sermonaudio 

Editor of The Paper Source Journal, etc.Pastor Mencarow has also been interviewed on numerous radio and TV programs (including "Good Morning America"), most networks and in major U.S. newspapers and magazines.   We also recommend that you listen to what may be the best audio commentary ever recorded, on the book of Revelation, by W.J. Mencarow (100+ free MP3s as of this writing), on Sermonaudio.

DR. C. MATTHEW McMAHON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE


Dr. C. Matthew McMahon Puritan Hard Drive Quote Graphic"In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than thePuritan Hard Drive.

 

It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned.

 

Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less the extreme caliber of its contents.

 

In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it."

More on the Puritan Hard Drive by Pastor Scott Brown 

  

"Pastor Scott Brown Recommends the Puritan Hard DriveStill Waters Revival Books has performed an astonishing feat in pulling together a massive collection of books and other resources.

 

Let me tell you how absolutely fantastic thePuritan Hard Drive really is.

  

This is a treasure trove for a local church pastor.

 

The search ability is beyond my expectation.

 

I was just on the island of Iona where Columba established a missionary outpost sending evangelists all over Britain.  Searching the hard drive for "Columba" added much to my understanding of this great leader through the eyes of Spurgeon and many others.

 

Thank you so much... for going to the trouble to make this available.

 

I am greatly improved by it and I anticipate the pace of worldwide reformation to be improved as well."

 

I blogged about it here:

 

Below is the blog post from the link above:

 

"On my way across the ocean to study the reformation with __________ I did not have a suitcase of books as I usually do. I was lamenting that fact at the airline ticket counter and my daughter Claudia said to me, "Papa, close your eyes and step into the new world." Well, let me confess: on my computer I have approximately 13,000 puritan and reformed books which I have acquired through my son downloading ebooks and a gigantic collection put together by Reg Barrow from Still Waters Revival Books. I am now like Abdul Kassem Ismael, Grand Vizier of Persia who, in the tenth century, carried his library with him wherever he went. The 117,000 volumes were carried by 400 camels which were trained to walk in alphabetical order."

DR. STEVEN DILDAY REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE

Dr. Steven Dilday Reviews & Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive"For a number of years now, I have followed, and benefited from, the work of Still Waters Revival Books, particularly the Reformation and Puritan Bookshelf CD sets... and now the Puritan Hard Drive.

The Puritan Hard Drive is a remarkable accomplishment!

The common Christian can now have a world-class Presbyterian and Reformed library at his fingertips, for only pennies per volume.

I do not think that it is an exaggeration to say that the Puritan Hard Drive presents an historic and singular opportunity.

The works on the Puritan Hard Drive have been invaluable to me in sermon preparation and in improving personal and familial piety. If these had been the only blessings attached to the reading of these documents, the expense (even if it had been much greater) would have been justified; but there is more here.

In this present time, a great many Presbyterians (particularly in North America) have forgotten and implicitly (perhaps unwittingly) rejected their Presbyterian heritage. Strangely, Westminster confessing churches have rejected the theological distinctives of the Westminster Standards.

Although the Westminster Assembly produced a beautiful statement of soteriological Calvinism, the histories clearly demonstrate that soteriology was not the principle focus, nor chief interest, of the Assembly. The Westminster Assembly was primarily concerned with uniformity in worship (in accordance with the Regulative Principle), the form of church government (Presbyterianism jus divinum), and Church-State relations (the Establishment Principle). It is a sad irony that the great and distinctive attainments of the Westminster Assembly have been ignored and rejected by so many Westminster confessing churches.

However, we may yet entertain the hope that these great attainments are rejected largely because of ignorance. The best books on these subjects have not been readily available; but (thanks be to God) they are available again on the Puritan Hard Drive.

For anyone interested in recovering our Presbyterian and Reformed past, the Puritan Hard Drive is a must.

It is my hope and prayer that the Puritan Hard Drive will be used by God to bring to light the things that were hidden, to call to remembrance the things that were forgotten."

Dr. Steven Dilday, Pastor of Liberty and Grace Reformed Church in Northern Virginia (free MP3 sermons online at http://www.sermonaudio.com/PRCNOVA) and founder of Liberty and Grace Reformed Theological Seminary (with distance learning).Dr. Dilday is currently translating (from Latin to English) the "Synopsis" written by the Puritan Divine, Matthew Poole. This project when completed will consist of approximately 82 volumes. Many free MP3s messages by Dr. Dilday are also at: HISTORY OF HOLY DAYS (CHRISTMAS, EASTER, CHRISTIAN SABBATH, JEWS, etc.), IDOLATRY, ICONOCLASM, etc.The History of the Service of Song: Real Reformation, Faithful Worship And Praising The Lord Jesus Christ Through Songs by Dr. Steven Dilday and a collection of some of Dr. Dilday's most important messages at Sermonaudio.
