Vexed With Wickedness

It doesn’t take much of a glance around us to see the wickedness that abounds. Murder, rape, and stealing are just a few examples that even those of the unbelieving world are appalled at. There are also sins of fornication and adultery, murder of the unborn, desecration of the Lord’s Day, and blasphemy, to name […]

Because it negates any argument for antithetical instruction, indeed, is the sworn foe of all antithetical instruction; because it destroys the antithesis in the lives of the members of the church; because it devastates the safety of the church; because it brings the world into the church, the Protestant Reformed Churches—and every member of the […]

Last time, we established that if we as Reformed believers—especially Reformed young people—in the 21st century would avoid the sin of Lot of pitching away from the church and toward Sodom, we must follow the exact command of Scripture and the Reformed Confessions to live antithetically. In this article, we consider the demands that this […]

Remembering Lot’s Wife

In the preceding article I called the attention of you young people to the fact that, when you seek a husband or wife, you must remember your Creator.  For, in the wisdom which God gave him, Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 12:1, “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days […]

Vexing Our Righteous Souls

Does your conscience speak? Are you troubled if you live as the world? For one of God’s elect to live as the world is for sure a person who is disturbed and troubled. His life is like a spiritual schizophrenic; he is living two lives. His life is very difficult as he tries to remain […]

Where Do You Pitch Your Tent?

“… and Lot pitched his tent toward Sodom. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sin­ners before the LORD exceedingly” – Gen. 13: 12, 13 It was truly a sad departure on the part of Lot. He separated himself, his house and all his servants and flocks and herds from Abram in the land […]

Genesis 17-21

THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROMISE Introduction: The entire life of the patriarch Abraham centers around the birth of his son. God established His covenant with Abraham (chap. 15), yet this covenant meant nothing to Abraham except the Lord would also give him a son in whom his seed would be continued.

Genesis 12,13, and 14

After the introduction of chapter 11, we are given the beginning of the history of Abraham which will continue on into chap­ter 25. Chapter 12 begins with the calling of Abram. This is evidently the second rendi­tion of the calling. The first had been given in Ur with the result that Abram and his father’s […]

Lot’s Wife

In Genesis 19:26 we read, “But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” This is probably one of the shortest biographies in the Bible. It is nearly all we know of Lot’s wife; yet that single sentence has made her one of the outstanding examples of the Bible. […]
