The Trump Card (WCF 1.10)

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

This is part of an ongoing series on the Westminster Confession of Faith. In bridge and some other card games the trump card outranks all the other cards played. The expression has made its way beyond the card table to other areas of life and culture. In a court of law, DNA evidence "trumps"...

A helpful thought on the inerrancy of Scripture

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

One of the vows for membership at HTC is, "Do you believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as originally given, to be the inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice?" "Inerrant" means without error. "Infallible" means it won't lead you astray.  But...

Five Latin phrases every Protestant should know

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

This past Sunday evening a baker's dozen of us gathered at The Long Room's cheerful outdoor patio for the discussion, "What does it mean to be a Christian, a Protestant, an Evangelical?" It was a great time, and for the benefit of those not present, I want to return to a bit about what it...

Reading and interpreting the Bible (WCF 1.8-9)

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

This is part of an ongoing series on the Westminster Confession of Faith. It's all Greek to me. 8. The Old Testament in Hebrew (which was the native language of the people of God of old), and the New Testament in Greek (which, at the time of the writing of it, was most generally known to the...

The Summer of Love

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

We've just finished our preaching series in 1 John, which we called, quite creatively, "The Summer of Love." Silly though that may sound, it's worth noting how much this epistle has to say about love: 2:5 "but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected." 2:10 "Whoever...

Fall Kick Off

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

The Autumnal Equinox will occur Wednesday, September 23 at 3:22 am. Fall will officially begin at that moment. I plan on sleeping through it.  And Holy Trinity Church won't wait for it. Our Fall season starts this Sunday, a full ten days ahead of the earth's revolution around the sun. Look...

Scripture is clear (more or less): WCF 1.7

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

This is part of an ongoing series on the Westminster Confession of Faith.  Ezekiel 1:15-17 is a wee bit bizarre: "Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them. As for the appearance of the wheels and their...

A Church for the City

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

In 1998 37 adults and their families from College Church in Wheaton moved from the leafy western suburbs to Hyde Park on the South Side of Chicago to start a new church - Holy Trinity Church. This small congregation had a big dream: to see the city of Chicago transformed by the power of the...

The Whole Counsel of God (WCF. 1.6)

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

This is part of an ongoing series on the Westminster Confession of Faith. This week we look at chapter 1 section 6. The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for his own glory, man's salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary...

A Prayer for the Unborn

Posted by Kyle Edwards on

I offer this prayer in light of the ongoing Planned Parenthood scandal involving the selling of body parts of aborted babies. God Almighty, for the babies who have no hope or justice in this life, we cry out to you, their heavenly Father. What David writes in Psalm 139 of himself is true for...
