Reformed and Reforming

Biblical Thought for Today's World

About

“The mind of the Christian is not satisfied until every form of existence has been referred to the triune God and until the confession of the trinity has recieved the place of prominence in our thought and life.”                                                                                                                                                                                – Herman Bavinck,  The Doctrine of God 

The purpose of this blog is to provide a Reformed perspective on today’s most pressing issues both in the world at large and in the church. By a Reformed perspective, we mean a worldview based on the heritage and teaching of the reformers in the 16th century. At the root of the phrase “Reformed and Reforming” is the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. This doctrine teaches the final authority on all of life and practice is God’s word. If Sola Scriptura is the root then Semper Reformanda is the fruit growing from this conviction. Semper Reformanda spawned from a movement called the Dutch Second Reformation whereby the leaders of this movement were convinced the Reformation corrected the doctrine of the church.  They humbly realized they did not perfect the church and the work of reformation continues today as the church always needs reforming in every generation. This does not mean the church starts over and reinvents itself to keep up with the times, but it does continually go back to the Word of God for the application of what it teaches in each generation and in each culture as unique situations arise. The aim of this blog is to provide both teaching and application for the Twenty-First Century church from the Word of God.
