About the Blog

It Is Written exists to promote the Reformation doctrine of sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone) and its corollary principle semper reformanda (always reforming). I’m basically Reformed and Baptist in my theological orientation. But more importantly, I’m a Bible believing Christian who affirms the verbal and plenary inspiration of both the Old and New Testaments of Holy Scripture (66 books) in their original autographs. I believe that the Scriptures are infallible and inerrant in all their parts and are, therefore, trustworthy and authoritative in all that they affirm concerning history, science, doctrine, ethics, religious practice, or any other topic. Moreover, I believe that salvation always has been and always will be through faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone. These convictions have been articulated well the great Reformed Confessions of Faith, especially, in the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689, which is the confessional standard of the seminary where I serve. But I don’t believe the Holy Spirit’s work of illuminating the church stopped in the seventeenth century. He continues to teach the church, and I continue to learn more of his Word even through other theological traditions. My prayer and hope is that God might be pleased to use the content posted on this blog to promote a stronger commitment to the Scripture’s supremacy over all thought and life–to the end that we might more fully glorify and enjoy him in all that we do!

    Bob,
    I’ve followed your post for some time. Of all that arrives in my inbox on any given day, yours have always proven a blessing to me.
    I have a question concerning the Sabbath. I work in the Law Enforcement field as a State Correctional officer, and understandably, Public Safety must be in place 24/7. After 8 years, I am still waiting for that “weekends’ off post, but so far have been working Sundays and approaching the Sabbath with a “one in seven” principle; taking one of my days off midweek and devoting it to the Lord as my Sabbath-rest (prayer, family, and my favorite expression of worship: study!).
    I have had to defend this position before, and with the current discussions going around I wanted to seek your thoughts on this matter…
    By His grace alone-
    Dave
