What do Aurora Australis, Romans 1, and Apostle Paul have in common?

Screen shot from “Antarctica: A Year On Ice”. Aurora Australis - The End Time By Elizabeth Prata - Posted at The End Time: In Romans 1, the famous passage in which Paul under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit describes the pagans’ reaction to experiencing the God of Creation, begins in verse 18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20) How does this play out, exactly? How are His invisible attributes seen and known? How is it that what can be known about God is made plain to people whose minds are darkened? I was watching a very excellent documentary called “Antarctica: A Year On I

The Chimera of Cancel Culture

By Clint Archer - Posted at The Cripplegate: Cancel culture is out for blood. A chimera is afoot: part hate, part bitterness, part vengeance. Those most likely to garnish attention from the fire-breather include politicians, celebrities, academicians, founding fathers, and whoever else kindles her ire by hesitating to join her cause. Masked in a novel façade this old menace appears to us like a freshly hatched threat. But the phenomenon has been gestating quietly for eons and has now come of age; a debutante with newfound, uncaged confidence. There is certainly renewed publicity for the term and the concept… Continue...

John MacArthur’s Church Defies California Orders To Close Doors

By Elle Reynolds - Posted at The Federalist: 'We cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on our weekly congregational worship,' MacArthur and the church's elder board said in a statement. John MacArthur, evangelist and pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, defied state orders to limit worship gatherings in a statement released Friday. “In response to the recent state order requiring churches in California to limit or suspend all meetings indefinitely, we, the pastors and elders of Grace Community Church, respectfully inform our civic leaders that they have exceeded their legitimate jurisdiction,” the statement said. “Faithfulness to Christ prohibits us from observing the restrictions they want to impose on our corporate worship services.” On July 13, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced new restrictions, requiring certain counties on a “monitoring list” to stop indoor worship services. Los Angeles County, where Grace Communit


By Michael Cecere - Posted at the Journal of the American Revolution: It had been a very hectic week in Williamsburg for Peyton Randolph, the Speaker of Virginia’s House of Burgesses and the President of the Continental Congress. It had begun with a startling alarm in the pre-dawn hours of April 21, 1775 . The commotion just outside his house roused the corpulent Speaker from his bed. Like many in Williamsburg, he rushed to the scene of the alarm, the gunpowder magazine, which for Randolph was within view of the front door across of his home. When he arrived he discovered that a party of British Marines had absconded with a wagon load of gunpowder from the powder magazine. The crowd at the courthouse grew increasing agitated at what they viewed as the theft of their gunpowder and most looked to the Royal Governor, John Murray, the Earl of Dunmore, for blame. Lord Dunmore was in fact responsible for the seizure of the powder and had arranged for its removal to a British warship anchored

Presbyterianism and Civil Liberty

Posted at This Day in Presbyterian History: “The Shorter Catechism fought through successfully the Revolutionary war.”—A.A. Hodge. Today’s post comes from the pen of the Rev. Dr. W.W. (Walter William) Moore [June 14, 1857-June 14, 1926], who, after a few brief pastorates, served first as professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, 1886-1915 and then as president of that same institution from 1904 until his death in 1926. The following article comes from THE NORTH CAROLINA PRESBYTERIAN, vol. 40, no. 2 (13 January 1898): 2. PRESBYTERIANISM AND CIVIL LIBERTY. by Rev. W.W. Moore, D.D. (Walter William Moore, 1857-1926) Civil liberty and religious liberty go hand in hand. As men settle the question of church power, so they are likely to settle the question of civil power. If they rest church power in the clergy they are likely to rest civil power in kings and nobles. Hence the remark of Lord Bacon that “Discipline by bishops is fittest for monar

Gynocentric interruptions of Scripture?

By Anna Wood - Posted at Femina Sola Gratia Gynocentric interruptions Gynocentric interruptions of Scripture–have you ever heard of such a thing? Well, you have now because Aimee Byrd has made sure that you did. What once wasn’t even a thought is now, according to Aimee, an important part of Scripture. And we’ve bought into it. Bought into what, you might ask? Gynocentric interruptions… what is that? Oh, not to worry. It’s a teaching that clearly falls within the historic biblical faith. I mean, after all, don’t you remember Martin Luther talking about it? John Calvin? Or what about John Owen? A.W. Pink? No? Yeah, it’s because they never even heard of gynocentric interruptions of Scripture and neither had anybody else. Until recently, that is, when Aimee Byrd discovered there was such a thing as, wait for it, gynocentric… oh… yeah, you got it already. Right. So, these gy…uhm…the female voice interruptions in Scripture (don’t you feel a little bit dumber having read that?)…I have a secr

“Bring Out Your Dead”: The Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793

By Mark Maloy - Posted at Emerging Revolutionary War Era: One of the worst epidemics in American history occurred in the then capital of the United States, Philadelphia, in the late summer and fall of 1793. The yellow fever epidemic of 1793 killed almost 10% of the city’s population and forced the young government of the United States and President George Washington to seek shelter away from Philadelphia. The 18th century was full of epidemics including smallpox, typhus, influenza, measles, and yellow fever. Yellow fever (also referred to as ‘the bilious fever’) was a brutal disease to contract and suffer. Once a person got yellow fever they would come down with aches and a fever. The disease would then attack the liver causing jaundice which turned the person’s skin a yellow color (hence the name yellow fever). Shortly after that, they would begin to bleed from the mouth, nose, and eyes and vomit black blood. It would usually only take a few days for the person to die from the disea

A way-station to egalitarianism: A review essay of Aimee Byrd’s Recovering from Biblical Manhood & Womanhood

By Denny Burk - Posted at Southern Equip : Evangelicals have been debating manhood and womanhood for decades, and the conflict shows no signs of subsiding. No little bit of ink is spilled every year by both sides, and many works have trouble getting through all the noise. Such is not the case with Aimee Byrd’s new book Recovering from Biblical Manhood & Womanhood: How the Church Needs to Rediscover Her Purpose (Zondervan, 2020). The provocative title riffs off the name of the seminal complementarian work Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womanhood , edited by John Piper and Wayne Grudem (Crossway, 1991). Byrd takes direct aim at what she believes to be the deficiencies of complementarianism as expounded by its chief proponents, especially the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womahood (CBMW). Byrd’s views at first blush appear to be a classic narrow complementarian perspective—a male-only eldership with husband as “head” of the home.1 In other words, her view sounds a little bit lik

Feminism in the Reformed Churches: 5. A Call to Arms

By Michael Spangler - Posted at The Daily Genevan : Feminism is attacking the Reformed churches. In previous articles I named the leaders of the movement, especially Aimee Byrd, Rachel Miller, and Valerie Hobbs, then discussed their tactics online, in books, and in the church. Now I call all Christians, and especially Reformed ministers and elders: mark such women, and the men who follow them, see the error of their teaching, and resist it with all your might. God forbid that any of us would be that watchman who sees the sword come, and blows not the trumpet, and the people be not warned, and their blood be required at our hand (Ezek. 33:6).  Take Up Your Pen Each of us must fight according to his calling and ability. Some have influence only over their own soul, or in their own family. They ought to use it. But others have more sway, because as ministers, as elders, as professors, as publishers, as bloggers, people listen to what you say. If that is so, I appeal to you esp


By Michael Spangler - Posted at The Daily Genevan : Feminism is on the march against the Reformed churches. We met its leaders , then considered their tactics online . Then last time we looked at two key books , and saw how they set themselves against honesty, truth, nature, and Scripture. Now we consider how the feminists have already breached the city gates, and are wreaking havoc within the walls of the church itself. Our survey will begin broadly, then descend to life in the local church, and in the Christian home. Much of the broad influence of feminism upon the church has already been discussed. Carl Trueman, Todd Pruitt, and Aimee Byrd are known throughout the Reformed churches for their podcast Mortification of Spin , which together with their blogs is published by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. Rachel Miller’s book Beyond Authority and Submission was published by Presbyterian & Reformed, a well-known purveyor of Reformed theology. Aimee Byrd’s new book was
