The Holy Scriptures 1:2-5

The authority of the Holy Scriptures obligates belief in them. This authority does not depend on the testimony of any person or church but on God the author alone, who is truth itself. Therefore, the Scriptures are to be received because they are the Word of God. The testimony of the church of God may…

The Holy Scriptures 1:1

It’s my hope as a part of this blog to slowly, and briefly, walk through the particular confession that I subscribe to: the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith. As a systematic summary of what I, as a Reformed Baptist, believe the Scriptures teach, I pray that this commentary will be edifying and challenging to…

A Gentle Ferocity

“A gentle answer turns away anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath.” (Proverbs 15:1) The prevailing culture around us, from the nightly news to social media, is anything but gentle.

A Biblical Framework: Covenant Theology

Why Be Confessional?

The name of this blog is “Confessional Communitas”, and I chose that name for a particular reason. I desire every bit of the content of this blog to be rooted in a robust confessionalism that fleshes itself out within the sphere of the communitas, which is Latin for “communion”, of the saints. To put it…

A Confessional Re-Brand

It’s been a minute since I’ve tinkered with this blog. Life’s been a whirlwind as of late. I’ve transitioned to a new job that’s utterly different than my previous one. In the hustle and bustle, writing was put onto the back-burner, aside from the occasional article for Founders Ministries. As I enter a new season…
