Support the PCA


By Robbie Franks
God established the Christian home to include mothers who love and train their children in the Lord.

The second Sunday of May is the day that the United States traditionally sets aside to honor and celebrate those precious people that God has given us, called mothers. Every year cards are purchased or made with loving hands, phone calls are placed, restaurants are packed, and gifts are given in an attempt to show appreciation to those who have given us much, both physically and spiritually. But do we really know the origins of this day? More

Real faith then needs to get out of the sanctuary and into our homes, our schools and our offices.

The issue of faith in the public arena just won't go away, and I say, "Amen." For decades secularists have vigorously tried to push faith out of the public marketplace and into the exclusive domain of things private and personal. They have even tried to rewrite history by saying that not only shouldn't faith have a role in the public life of America but that it never really did. All those stories about religious motivations among the founders are nothing more than legends. The secularists got it wrong then and they will continue to get it wrong; faith cannot be kept out of the marketplace. More

Church Life
By Brady Shuman
There's a huge group of us, young eager people, willing to learn, serve, and excited about the PCA.

Editor's note: Brady Shuman is the daughter of TE Steve Shuman, pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Laurel, Miss. She will be graduating from Covenant Seminary in May 2004. One of her assignments before graduation was to write a Senior Essay reflecting on her time at seminary.  Brady remarked, "As I was writing this, I was struck by the fact that I am part of the first generation of young people to grow up in the PCA and we are now becoming active as leaders and servants in its churches and ministries.  I found this idea exciting and wanted to share it with the PCA people."

I heartily concur with him that "the heavens will indeed declare the glory of God."

While I believe that Ray Williams' article regarding the Hubble Ultra Deep Field Discovery is fascinating and certainly we both agree that it ultimately shows God's handiwork, I must disagree once again with him on the conclusions he reaches based on the evidence

He says that the new discoveries testify to "the vast size and extreme age of the universe."  The discoveries do appear to fit the theory that Mr. Williams supports, but they could also fit other theories that do not make the earth old.  We must remember that scientific paradigms are just that – theories.

The approved statements, grounds and committee reports are in published synod and assembly minutes.

In recent years the major churches making up the membership of the Presbyterian and Reformed Joint Commission on Chaplains and Military Personnel (PRJC) have in their General Assemblies and Synods passed resolutions concerning the use of women as military combatants in the Armed Forces of the United States.  To assist in applying the resolutions, the PRJC is sending this letter and the accompanying statement as a concise response.

God Substituting Himself for Man

The concept of substitution may be said to lie at the heart of both sin and salvation. For the essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting Himself for man. Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices Himself for man and puts Himself where only man deserves to be. Man claims prerogatives which belong to God alone; God accepts penalties which belong to man alone.
