The Invitation System, Iain Murray
Note: While this composition is valuable, Murray’s Reformed doctrine that regeneration precedes faith is a serious error. While conversion is indisputably miraculous and impossible apart from God’s grace, Divinely enabled repentance and faith logically precede regeneration.

Sacrament and Ordinance: Aren’t they the same? Jonathan Pratt
The Regulative Principle of the Church, Sam Waldron
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.
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.
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.
