  1. How problematic is John Frame’s Systematic Theology for orthodox, Reformed believers? How problematic is the presence of theonomy and acceptance of Doug Wilson’s worldview in a confessional, creedal Reformed body of believers?

  2. Greetings from Kenya. I have been reading The Heidelblog for a couple of years now. The Heidelcast Series: “I Will Be A God To You And to Your Children” and Rev Leon Brown’s series “The Doctrine That Caused Tears” were absolutely crucial in changing my mind on baptism.
    As an outside observer I find it interesting that a post you wrote as the year came to a close (number 3) was so popular that it shot to that position compared with posts earlier in the year that had much more time in the year to accumulate views. My random observation on that would be that politics and the culture war has a choke-hold on the Christian religion within the USA even within conservative Reformed i.e. NAPARC circles. Just a passing thought.
    All the best in 2020.

    • TLSE,

      Happy New Year!

      I think you’re right.

      I’ve noticed the same pattern. Culture-related posts/essays tend to garner more traffic than other sorts of posts. E.g., I’ve been commenting on 1 & 2 Peter for some time and they get rather less traffic than culture-related posts or posts to do with baptism.

      Thanks for the encouragement. May the Lord bless you in 2020.
