Radio Covenanter: “Lo antiguo es mejor!”

Un teólogo dijo una vez: “La religión evangélica estadounidense tiene mil millas de ancho y una pulgada de profundidad.” En la misma línea, hay “mucho calor donde hay poca luz.”

“Why are Men in Crisis?”

“Man Park,” cooed the Saturday Night Live narrator, “it’s like a dog park, but for guys … so they can make friends and have an outlet besides their girlfriends and wives.” The sketch, from about a year ago, points to an unfortunate reality. Men are in crisis, struggling with a loss of purpose, of relationship, and of usefulness.

Reformed Youth & Young Adult Weekend in S. Jersey

Twice per year, our congregation in Corbin City, New Jersey hosts a free retreat for youth and young adults (teens through twenties+). Our last one was March 11 & 12, 2023, and our theme was “Caught in the Middle: Facts, Feelings, and the Christian.” RYYA weekends are a very special time of fun, fellowship, and worship. There is ample accommodation, but anyone interested should secure a place as soon as possible. Here are posts from previous RYYA weekends:

The cross: debt discharged

III. Christ, by his obedience and death, did fully discharge the debt of all those that are thus justified, and did make a proper, real, and full satisfaction to his Father’s justice in their behalf.a Yet inasmuch as he was given by the Father for them,b and his obedience and satisfaction accepted in their stead,c and both freely, not for anything in them, their justification is only of free grace;d that both the exact justice and rich grace of God might be glorified in the justification of sinners.e
