New Issue of "Salt Shakers" Magazine - July 2016

"Covenant Keepers", the youth ministry of the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore (our sister church), recently released the JULY 2016 issue of "Salt Shakers" (#38),their youth magazine.

Once again, the "SS" is filled with interesting and profitable articles, and our PRC young people especially are invited and encouraged to make it part of their reading content.

Below you will find a note from the "SS" Committee introducing the contents of this issue and images of the cover and table of contents. The entire issue is also attached here in pdf form.

Beloved Readers,

The Salt Shakers is pleased to bring you Issue 38 of Salt Shakers! Join us as we consider the theme for the rest of this year, "A Pilgrim's Path". We begin this journey with the article Certainty in an Uncertain World, written by Matthias Wee. May the Lord give all his children His sure assurance in such times as we live in.

In other news, Aaron Lim will be taking over from Paul Liu as the Editor of Salt Shakers from next issue onwards. We are thankful for Paul and his faithful labours, and he will continue to be involved in the magazine in an advisory capacity.

Once again, we are thankful for the Lord' grace in sustaining the continued publishing of this Reformed youth magazine.

In Christ,

Chua Lee Yang, On Behalf of the Salt Shakers Committee

UPON WHAT DOES YOUR FAITH STAND?
By Rev Angus Stewart

In this 3-part series, we consider Faith!

In 1 Corinthians 2:5, the Holy Scripture warns that "your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men". "Wisdom of men" may include human philosophy, rational proofs or human testimonies.

Rather, true faith stands in "the power of God", resting upon God and His Word alone. The inward working of the Holy Spirit convicts us of the infallibility and authority of Scripture.

This truth about faith also establishes the importance of preaching. It is not debates, philosophies or arguments that create faith. It is the Holy Spirit which works faith in us through the preaching of the gospel - the gospel which testifies powerfully that in Christ, God has reconciled the world unto Himself (II Cor. 5:19) and that believers have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Is your faith standing firm in the power of God?

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.

ABIDING IN OUR CALLING
By Rev Angus Stewart

This pamphlet is a four-part series on I Corinthians 7:17-24, which deals with the topic of our calling. 

The first part speaks about our effectual call, election. The second speaks about our earthly calling, vocation. The third speaks about the calling of servants and how we were bought with a price, Christ's blood. Lastly, article four reminds us "that Christian contentment does not rest upon favourable external circumstances but upon faith in the goodness and providence of God."

An excellent read for all Christians in our various callings in life. Let us seek to use our callings for the service of God and the church!

A FATHER'S PITY
By Rev Jason Kortering

"Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust."Psalms 103:13, 14

No one wants pity. Everybody wants respect! However, within the household of faith, pity is a good thing. It is Divine!

Pity is to feel the pain of others, weeping with those who weep. It is the bridge between justice and mercy.  God in His justice punishes the wicked and sin, but God is also merciful and gracious towards His people and removes their transgression by the blood of His own Son.

The love and compassion of an earthly father is a reflection of our Father in heaven. May we be humbled and touched by His love and grace.

Ps 128

1 Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.

3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord.

5 The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
