Book cover for A Tale of Two Cities
The night wore out, and, as he stood upon the bridge listening to the water as it splashed the river-walls of the Island of Paris, where the picturesque confusion of houses and cathedral shone bright in the light of the moon, the day came ...more
Samuel D. Renihan
“Under Solomon all the promises and blessings of God delivered to Abraham and Moses and David reach their zenith. Solomon's dedication of the temple is the high point of the entire Old Testament.”
Samuel D. Renihan, The Mystery of Christ, His Covenant, and His Kingdom

Samuel D. Renihan
“In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.- Judges 21:25 (ESV)

This is precisely the context of the Davidic Covenant. Israel entered the land as promised to Abraham, but they disobeyed the law delivered by Moses. And as a result, they were afflicted and oppressed. There was no king in Israel. There was no obedience in Israel. The law was neglected, and the people suffered. What Israel needed was for someone to keep the law of Moses for the nation, bringing blessing and deliverance to all the children of Abraham.”
Samuel D. Renihan, The Mystery of Christ, His Covenant, and His Kingdom

“If infant baptism is not commanded in Scripture, it is thus a violation of what is called the Regulative Principle of Worship.”
James Renihan, For The Vindication of The Truth: Baptist Symbolics Volume 1: a Brief Exposition of the First London Baptist Confession of Faith

J. Gresham Machen
“Instead of destroying the arts and sciences or being indifferent to them, let us cultivate them with all the enthusiasm of the veriest humanist, but at the same time consecrate them to the service of our God. Instead of stifling the pleasures afforded by the acquisition of knowledge or by the appreciation of what is beautiful, let us accept these pleasures as the gifts of a heavenly Father. Instead of obliterating the distinction between the Kingdom and the world, or on the other hand withdrawing from the world into a sort of modernized intellectual monasticism, let us go forth joyfully, enthusiastically to make the world subject to God.”
J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Culture

Samuel D. Renihan
“The kingship of Israel is not founded on the people's desire to free themselves from God, as with Saul, but on God's commitment to establish the Throne of David.”
Samuel D. Renihan, The Mystery of Christ, His Covenant, and His Kingdom
