#190 Holy Days and the Regulative Principle of Worship

We are joined on the show today by David Silversides, the Minister of Loughbrickland Reformed Presbyterian Church, to talk about the Law of God and the observance of Holy Days by the Church. Are Holy Days like Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, Easter and Christmas lawful? What is the Regulative Principle of Worship? What is the Normative Principle of Worship? What is Christian Liberty? Should the Regulative Principle of Worship be applied to Sunday School? Is the Regulative Principle of Worship correctly applied by the Family-Integrated movement?

#188 Should Christians Boycott the Worship Industry?

Jonathan Aigner, a blogger on patheos.com, recently wrote an article called “It’s Time to Boycott the Worship Industry.” Is he right? What does the Word of God command us to do in Worship? — The Westminster Confession of Faith: “Chapter 21 Of Religious Worship and the Sabbath-day. I. The light of nature showeth that there is a God, who hath lordship and sovereignty over all, is good, and doth good unto all, and is therefore to be feared, loved, praised, called upon, trusted in, and served, with all the heart, and with all the soul, and with all the might.(a) But the acceptable way of worshipping the true God is instituted by Himself, and so limited by His own revealed will, that He may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in the holy Scripture.(b) (a) Rom. 1:20; Acts 17:24; Ps. 119:68; Jer. 10:7; Ps. 31:23; Ps. 18:3; Rom. 10:12; Ps. 62:8; Josh. 24:14; Mark 12:33. (b) Deut. 12:32; Matt. 15:9; Acts 17:25; Matt. 4:9, 10; Deut. 4:15 to 20; Exod. 20:4, 5, 6; Col. 2:23.”

 

#187 Michael L. Brown and the Gullible Charismatic Movement

Michael L. Brown wrote an article recently called “Gullibility, the Great Sin of the Charismatic Church” for Charisma. What does it reveal and expose about Brown and the Charismatic movement?

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise” -Ephesians 5:15 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” -Hebrews 5:12-14
