We are a group of Christians who recognize that God, in His love, mercy, and infinite wisdom has not only provided the means of forgiveness through His Son Jesus Christ, but has also provided, in the Old and New Testaments, all necessary directions and instructions for a just, happy, and productive society.

Greetings friends of The Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society


We will be kicking off our 2016 lecture series  on January 19th with a very timely presentation:

John Piper - (RINO) Reformed In Name Only

John Piper is regarded as a primary modern-day spokesman for Reformed theology.

How do his recent comments on the important subject of self defense and the use of firearms square with the Bible, and with Reformed theology?

A Christian View of War - Part 2

From our latest lecture...





Third Tuesday Lecture Series...

Why War: A Christian View of War

Part 2

For our "Third Tuesday" Lecture Series Tuesday,
August 18th

What is a "just war"?

What is an "unjust war"?

How do we judge whether our country is fighting a just or unjust war?

Do we think biblically on this subject, or are our thoughts based on tradition, habit, or politics?  Sharpen your thinking through this presentation by Joel Saint.

Part 1 will be briefly reviewed; this month's presentation will be complete in itself if you missed last month.

McDurmon Article Upsetting but True...

The conclusion in this article by Joel McDurmon is as upsetting as it is true. I quote from it below:

"Thus the pietists who comprise the vast majority of evangelical and conservative Christians keep biblical law out of government, and stifle and condemn those who try. The pietists run interference, and the humanists follow the pietists’ blocking scheme for the easy touchdowns. (Admittedly, this sports analogy assumes there are actually some of these pietist Christians on the field. Most are actually on the sidelines or not even in uniform.)"

McDurmon's thesis is that the pietists and the humanists are most comfortable bedfellows when it comes to God's Law and society.

What McDurmon does not say (but I am saying here) is that, when agreeing that the Christians should shut up about society, they also are agreeing about everything else: That is, God's law only belongs in the church and the family.

It turns out that the pietists and the humanists are not such strange bedfellows after all. The pietists think they can get along with the humanists as long as they don't bother the humanists as they take over law, government, education, entertainment, medicine, and the media.

Strange bedfellows indeed. But that kick in the rump that the pietists just felt with the Obergefell decision? That was the humanists telling the pietists that they no longer need them. The pietists turned over the pantry to the humanists. The humanists promised to stay in the pantry. They will no longer stay there. They are emerging out of the pantry to eat the pietists (and everyone else) out of house and home. 

Of the many messages we have received from Obergefell, that one is most obvious.
