Great posts

This particular video excerpt at Heidelblog is very powerful because it’s so very real. I don’t know from which show it came, but the truth is so obvious. When we’re facing imminent death, all but the very stupid or deluded see all the mumbo jumbo as worthless. Real answers only come from the Scriptures, not self-help books. People hear the cliche that there are no atheists in a foxhole. That’s not entirely true, but it’s close. Everyone’s foxhole looks a bit different.

In response to what appears to be a pointless Federal Vision post, Mark has posted an excellent historical survey of the term “regeneration.” Well worth reading.

There’s an excellent discussion of merit here (HT: GreenBagginses). This is another area of obfuscation by Federal Visionists.

Jason has a great post on the hack phrase: “Reformed and always reforming.” (HT: Heidelblog) It ain’t what you think. I dropped the phrase forever when I heard it used in the radical feminist Reimagining God controversy (here also). Now I further have confirmation of that wisdom.

While you’re on Jason’s blog, catch this post on extra-confessionalism. I couldn’t say it any better.
