Want to Turn Your Church into a Cathedral? What You Need Is a Relic!

Relics WinCE.jpgIf you want to turn your drab little church into a grand cathedral, what you need is a relic!  Saint's Alive might have just what you are looking for.  Click here: Introduction to Relics/ Saints Alive Kudos

Calvin had an interesting thought or two on this topic!  Click here: John Calvin: An Inventory of Relics

Does anyone know of any good Reformed relics?  I have a coffee cup that Mike Horton used.  I have a glass that R. C. Sproul drank from . . .  Any thoughts?

    Martin Luther wondered how there could be twenty-six apostles buried in Germany, when there were only twelve in the entire Bible! No doubt he would have found this relic site more than a little disturbing. It gives "buyer beware tips"...

I've got a pen that was sitting on a pulpit used by D.A. Carson, I think he even sweated on it.

At my Seminary's recent library book sale (the Free Church College, Edinburgh), I got a copy of DM Lloyd Jones on Ephesians for £5 (roughly $7-8). Inside the front cover is an autograph: "DM Lloyd Jones, December 1978".

I feel markedly holier when I hold it.

How about the tip of Fran Shanahan's finger? That should do the trick!

They excavated Luther's bathroom last year. Evidently that's where he did a lot of his thinking/writing. The ultimate Protestant relic!

A video of the episode of "Praise the Lord" where R.C. Sproul denied modern day miracles would definitely qualify as a relic. Likewise, a plaster cast of Paul Crouch's face following R.C.'s comment would be priceless.

I'll give you 20 dollars and a signed copy of Covenant and Eschatology for the Horton mug?

I used to own Meredith Kline's TV and the last TV guide he had at Westminster Seminary. Great helps in understanding his Framework view of creation.

I'm a relic as Pope Godfrey laid hands on me for my ordination. Pens, mugs, tv's...hah!

Pastor Hyde,
A relic needs to be displayed under glass. How long can you hold your breath?

I have a wesminster confession that John Frame used to own. Chapter 21 is torn out.
