Darryl Hart revisits a topic that has been broached from time to time--the production of a new Reformed/Presbyterian confession. Darryl provides links to some of the more important discussions. I'm on-board. I think this is a great idea. Just as we need an up-to-date dogmatics text, Bible translation and liturgical forms, so too we need a new confession which addresses issues currently facing the churches. Also, this would be a great way to see the North American Reformed and Presbyterian churches unite around a common confession. Not likely to happen, but we can dream. A New Confession?
Mike Horton has written a great essay on the "Burn the Koran" issue. You can find the follow-up post here, as well as a link to the earlier post: Burning the Koran?
More two kingdom confusion. "Lets have an Imam pray before the city council meeting to show our `solidarity' with him." I'd prefer to do that through the Pledge of Allegiance (i.e. in the civil kingdom), rather than having to sit there with my eyes open and my arms folded in disgust while some Imam prays that the city submit to the will of Allah. Let the Iman Pray?
This really chaps my hide! 41 current White House aides owe the IRS over $831,000.00 in back taxes. Don't you just love the Beltway crowd? Our tax dollars pay their salaries. They don't produce anything, so there is no "multiplier effect" (take that Keynes). Then, these bureaucrats are taxed on their salary, which they owe to the IRS. But then they don't pay it. The nerve of these guys! White House Tax Delinquents
