Guy Waters, Sunday PM and San Antonio

Our own Guy Waters brought a solid message at the evening service last night. We are so privileged to have him in our midst. Do pray for him as he speaks in San Antonio on the New Perspective on Paul (a revisionist approach to understanding Paul's teaching on salvation, the church and eschatology, which in some forms calls into question the biblical doctrine of justification by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone) and the Federal Vision (a loosely connected "movement" in one corner of the conservative reformed community that believes that the classic covenant theology of our denomination's doctrinal standards is deficient and in need of biblical improvement). Those sympathetic with the Federal Vision are typically interested in promoting a particular view of sacramental efficacy (often using the language or categories of baptismal regeneration, and proponing paedo-communion), challenging the invisible-visible church distinction and advocating for liturgical reform).
