"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    I'm back....

    Almost 10 years ago, I blogged for Reformation Theology and I am happy to say I’m back. This was a period of time that “Challies.com” had just launched and many of us were just getting use to the idea of Reformed blogs. It is amazing to see what God has done, since that time. Reformed Theology has made a tremendous impact in Evangelicalism and Christ is changing lives and churches!

    Here are a few thoughts since I’ve left:

    1.New Calvinists- Call me an old dog, but I’m honestly not familiar with many of the new faces of reformed theology. The prominent Reformed preachers of our day have expanded. MacArthur, Piper, and Sproul have influenced the next generation of preachers!

    2.Reformed Hip-Hop- I believe one of the primary reasons for the interest in Reformed theology has been due to Hip-Hop. Lampmode Recordings- home to Shai Linne, Timothy Brindle, Stephen the Levite, S.O., and God’s Servant have faithfully proclaimed the doctrines of grace for 10 years! I highly recommend any music from Lampmode. I would also like to commend Mark Dever who has graciously trained many of the reformed artists in his Pastoral internship program. Thank you! You have done a great favor to the church.

    3.Let’s pray graciously that God continues this movement. At this point, it is best to remain humble and pray that the Lord Jesus increases his church through a consistent and clear gospel. Josh Harris got it right when he named his new book-“Humble Orthodoxy”. This is the type of Christians we want to become, while maintaining a need for sound doctrine.

    4. Monergism- Quite frankly, who has not been influenced by Monergism? This is the one stop resource for articles, sermons, and books. I don't believe that this was highlighted in Young, Restless, and Reformed. But, this has been a definite factor for the resurgence in Reformed Theology. Thank you, John for your relentless commitment to the gospel.
