The Doctrine of the Church
A Word Study Demonstrating the Meaning of the Word Church, Ekklesia (Ecclesia), and consequently the Nature of the Church as a Local Assembly only, not a Universal, Invisible Entity
The Dangers of the Invitation System, Jim Ehrhard Note: The SBC and Calvinism are unscriptural and posting this article is no endorsement of either.
Concern Over God’s Glory in Evangelism: The Necessity and Sufficiency of Biblical Evangelistic Methods, Kent Brandenburg
Purchase Psalm-singing Resources (Note: other material on this website is not recommended, and while 95% of the psalm-singing is Biblical, conservative music, a small minority is not.)
Our Own Hymnbook: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for public, social, and private worship, C. H. Spurgeon
The Law of A Sound Mind, by Peter Masters—A Demonstration of the Centrality of the Rational in Biblical Worship and Christian Service
How Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism Are Teeming with Ecstatic and Demonic Influence, Kent Brandenburg
The Devil’s Mission of Amusement: The Church’s Task—Entertainment or Evangelization? by Archibald Brown
Warning: Delivuk is a Presbyterian who believes, incorrectly, that the Regulative Principle requires exclusive Psalmody and the elimination of instrumental music in the church, while he believes it also allows for paedobaptism. He is wrong in all of these conclusions, but his article is still valuable as a general defense of the Regulative Principle.
Infant Baptism and the Regulative Principle of Worship, Fred Malone Warning: While this is a fine article and general study in ecclesiology, Malone would have done well to employ the Biblical term “ordinance” rather than the word “sacrament” for baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
A Careful Baptist Statement of the Regulative Principle of Worship and its Practical Outworking Note: The fact that this is a well-written statement does not constitute an endorsement of Calvinism or of any type of church other than an unaffiliated and separatist Baptist congregation.
The True Meaning of Easter, Greg Wilson Note: While Wilson makes good points, neither his TULIP theology nor his Wednesday crucifixion view (cf. Luke 24:21) are Scriptural.
Should a Christian celebrate Christmas? by Biblical Discernment Ministries (Note: While the article linked here is valuable, Alexander Hislop’s The Two Babylons, one of the sources in its bibliography, contains certain factual errors, and not every historical derivation of Christmas customs is entirely certain.)
The Regulative Principle of Worship and Christmas, Brian Schwertley Warning: Schwertley is a Presbyterian who is for exclusive psalmody and against instrumental music, positions not mandated in Scripture. Also, the Lord’s Day is not the Christian Sabbath, contra Schwertley. Furthermore, churches have the liberty to meet on any day of the year and to preach on any Biblical topic on any day of the year, so they can preach on the incarnation on December 25. With these important caveats, Schwertley’s article makes many points well worthy of consideration.
