The gospel is…the word about Jesus Christ and what he did for us in order to restore us to a right relationship with God. – Graeme Goldsworthy

Why Reformed Theology Is The Most Reasonable System of Thought

“Reformed theology claims that Christianity is reasonable. To make good its claim it shows that reason itself must be interpreted in terms of the truths of Scripture about it. It is reasonable for a creature of God to believe in God. It is unreasonable for a creature of God to set up itself as God requiring a system of interpretation in which man stands as the ultimate point of reference. Not having a system of theology and philosophy in which reason itself is interpreted in term of exclusively biblical principles, [Roman Catholicism] and Arminianism cannot effectively challenge the reason of the natural man.” Cornelius Van Til, “Introduction,” The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible by B.B.Warfield (49)
