What's Galatians Really About?

What's Galatians Really About?

Here are two diagnostic questions for Christians that need very honest answers. Here’s the first: if you go to church and also are in a Bible study and prayer group, do they complement each other, so that you get something from one that you don’t from the other? What, specifically?

WRF Member Dr. Trevor Morrow Describes the Work of "Marie Dentiere, Woman Theologian and Preacher of the Reformation"

500 years ago at the dawning of the reformation, the life of a woman was not easy. Most were illiterate. The nobility would have had tutors to provide some formal education for their children including the girls. The only option for the rest was to join a religious order.  In the convents, the nuns, whatever their social background, became articulate and well educated in the classics and spiritual literature.

WRF Member Thomas Johnson Discusses "Protestants, Catholics, and Re-evangelizing Western Civilization 500 Years after the Reformation"

I have taken the liberty of a very small change in title in light of what I have learned in the year since I agreed to give this speech. Of course, a “Great Gulf” was the term used by Karl Barth, a century ago, to describe Protestant-Catholic relations, and it is still a good descriptor.

WRF Member and Anglican Archbishop Glenn Davies Asks, "What Does the Bible Teach About Deacons and Women in Ministry?"

As a member of the World Reformed Fellowship, I represent the Anglican branch of the reformation tradition. Our differences with Presbyterians are slight, with regard to doctrine, but are perhaps most sharply defined with respect to polity. This has usually centred upon the nature of eldership: presbyteral eldership versus an episcopal eldership (accepting as I do that presbyteros and episcopos are used interchangeably in the New Testament).

WRF Member Leonardo De Chirico Responds to the WARC Statement on Justification

It is no surprise that the ecumenical bodies representing mainline Protestant churches gradually come together in celebrating the achievements of the “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification” (JDDJ). After the signature between the Catholic Church and the Lutheran World Federation in 1999, it was the World Methodist Council that endorsed JDDJ in 2006. Now it’s the turn of the World Communion of Reformed Churches.
