Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Ronald Nash: An Evaluation of Evangelicalism

Ronald Nash was a Calvinist and Evangelical Baptist.  He died in 2006 but he was an advocate of presuppositional apologetics and was a fan of Carl F. H. Henry and Gordon H. Clark.  Nash was not perfect by a long shot.  By God's providence I came across this lecture on Evangelicalism that was posted at the Third Millennium website.  He explains why so many Evangelical seminaries and colleges have gone liberal and why others are headed in that direction.  I'm posting the link here:  Evangelicalism.  Unfortunately, it seems that Reformed Theological Seminary has closet liberals teaching on the faculties of the various locations.  Bruce Waltke resigned at RTS in Orlando, Florida because he opted for theistic evolution, which naturally leads to neo-orthodoxy.

The Presbyterian Church in America is now predominated by the church growth and contemporary worship mentality which focuses on experiential pietism rather than on a solid and rational understanding of God's logical revelation in Holy Scripture.  The way things are going the PCA will probably be a full blown liberal denomination in another twenty years.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen. Visit 1662 Book of Common Prayer: Daily Prayer and Reasonable Christian Blog

You are so late. Intellectual theory hinders you from seeing the spiritual reality. The mainline has already been dismantled, for 'liberal' causes. It came with the Counterculture. In another twenty years--there will be no Western church.

Well, there's your problem. You view the rational revelation in the Bible as merely a "theory" of the intellect. You're even later since these issues are a result of the Enlightenment and of the modernist and postmodernist movements.
