Crete PRC to Host Public Lecture October 28, 2016

From Crete PRC (Illinois) comes this notice of a special public lecture to be held Friday, October 28, 2016. Their flyer is also included here in image and pdf (attached) forms.

The doctrine of common grace developed by Abraham Kuyper has had radical and far reaching effects in the Reformed and Presbyterian denominations that have embraced it.  Crete PRC is hosting a lecture on Friday, October 28, at 7:30 p.m. entitled “The Tipping Point: Common Grace, Worldliness, and the Growing Apostasy in the Church.”  The speaker will be Prof. R. Cammenga, professor of Dogmatics and Old Testament Studies at the Protestant Reformed Seminary.  The lecture will examine the early reception of the doctrine of common grace and the long term effects that it has had on the church and the Christian schools.  Join us at Crete PRC or listen live at prccrete.org.

FEATURED Pamphlet!
Leaving Bethlehem for Moab
By Rev Angus Stewart

This pamphlet  describes the book of Ruth as "a romantic book, for it begins with several tragedies and it contains a courtship (of a sort) which issues in a marriage (between Ruth and Boaz) and the birth of their son (Obed). A very happy ending!"

This book is significant firstly because it concerns our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Ruth was the great-grandmother of King David, part of the very lineage of Christ! Secondly, as Ruth was a Moabitess, this story instructs us about the Universal church which includes Gentiles.

These are some of the important truths that are explained in this pamphlet. Read it to find out more!

Christianizing the World by Prof David Engelsma
From the RFPA website:

This book is a critique of Abraham Kuyper’s cultural theory of a common grace of God and of the grandiose mission of this grace, and of those who confess the theory and evidently intend to promote it so that it accomplishes the end Kuyper claimed. The book exposes Kuyper’s biblical basis for his theory and its practical mission.

The first and main part of the book is a much-expanded version of the public lecture given in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2014 under the auspices of the evangelism society of Southwest Protestant Reformed Church in Wyoming, Michigan. The second part of the book consists of questions raised by the audience at the conclusion of the lecture and of the answers by the speaker at the lecture.

From the SS website:

"In this edition, we continue our consideration of the theme of “A Pilgrim’s Path”. As Peter writes, we are strangers to the world, elect according to the foreknowledge of God our father (1 Peter 1:1-2). Yet, we are in the world. How shall we walk in it? This is an important question for us to ask in the days of our youth."
