Reformed News Asia: Issue 34 - October 2016

Issue 34 - October 2016
We print pamphlets written by our members and those from other Reformed churches of like-minded faith. They include a wide range of topics from doctrines to church history and practical Christian living. These pamphlets serve to promote knowledge of the true God as expressed in the Reformed faith.
FEATURED Pamphlet!
God's Way
By Rev Angus Stewart

Through 4 articles, this pamphlet considers Psalm 77 where the author Asaph struggled to understand the ways of God. He wondered if God had forsaken him and "in anger shut up His tender mercies".

Troubled and distressed, Asaph "sought the Lord", eventually concluding that God's way is in the sanctuary and in the sea. Truly, His ways are not our ways.

This pamphlet remind us of Jehovah's preservation of His saints. No matter what earthly circumstances may indicate, He is always gracious towards His elect. Though weary and cast off, a child of God will never lose his faith.

Be Ye Holy: The Reformed Doctrine of Sanctification 
by Profs David Engelsma and Herman Hanko

Extracted from the Foreword:

"The goal is that we might know the truth of sanctification—which biblical doctrine, like all other aspects of God’s truth, makes us free (John 8:32)—and obey the gospel call to holiness in heart and life, by God’s grace. Some 2,000 years ago, on the day before His crucifixion    for us, our Saviour prayed, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17). Christ’s prayer on that momentous night    and His continuous intercession for His church embraces not only the billions of God’s elect over the millennia and the innumerable    occasions whereby He uses His truth in various ways; it also includes this humble book and all the saints who shall read it."

Examination of Emmanuel Singh
On 29 Oct 2016, church members and visitors gathered in CERC for a significant event - the examination of Bro Emmanuel Singh. This examination took place in accordance with Article 9 of our church order, as a necessary step towards calling Emmanuel as a missionary of CERC.

"Preachers without fixed charge, or others who have left some sect, shall not be
admitted to the ministry of the church until they have been declared eligible, after
careful examination by the classis, with the approval of synod." Article 9, Church Order.

Revs Daniel Kleyn and Wilbur Bruinsma, delegates from the Protestant Reformed Churches of America (PRCA), were present to assist in the examination.
