A Farewell to Arms

A Farewell to Arms

As you’ve probably figured out, I have decided to turn off the comments feature here at Creed Code Cult. While the site gets over 1,000 page views from 400+ unique visitors per day, I have found that, when left under-moderated, I can’t depend on some of the participants to maintain a civil level of discourse. I have tried having others step in for me to pick up my slack, it hasn’t really worked out as well as I had hoped....

Clothed in Christ

Clothed in Christ

*** The Following Article is by Nick *** I have often heard Protestants explain the Imputation of Christ’s Righteousness in terms of the believer being “clothed in Christ’s righteousness,” which they take to mean our sinfulness is covered over by Christ’s perfection, causing us to appear pure and holy before God (though ‘underneath’ the clothing we remain sinful). But as I came to look at how the Bible speaks of “clothing” I...

Daniel and the Universal Kingdom

Daniel and the Universal Kingdom

Daniel 2 contains a fascinating prophecy which speaks of God’s plan to set up a Kingdom upon earth that is not of human origin and will come to cover the whole earth. Christians as far back as the Early Church Fathers have interpreted this prophecy as referring to the Catholic Church being established by Christ, expanding all over the world, and lasting forever. After reflecting upon the prophecy, I see no other plausible interpretation. Let...

Sola Fide in the Parable of Pharisee and Tax Collector?

Sola Fide in the Parable of Pharisee and Tax Collector?

Protestants often claim that the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector from Luke 18:9-14 is proof that Jesus taught Justification by Faith Alone. In this brief post I will show that this Protestant claim has no Biblical merit at all. If you need a refresher, here’s what the parable says: 9 Jesus told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into...

The Mediocrity of the New Covenant?

The Mediocrity of the New Covenant?

According to Reformed Theology, even the “good works” which Christians are called to do are “tainted by sin”. And on top of that, Reformed theology says these “good works” are only pleasing to God in so far as they are “covered by the blood and righteousness of Christ”. But if you stop and think about what this is saying, no Christian should be comfortable with such teaching. Why would God give us a new heart and give us the...

Two Years a Catholic

Two Years a Catholic

On September 23rd, 2012 (two years ago today), I was received into full communion with the Catholic Church. Humanly speaking, it was one of the worst decisions I have ever made. The last two years have brought me almost nothing but loss. Most of my fellow alumni and former professors at Westminster Seminary no longer speak to me, I am denied entrance into the church I planted (where my family still attends on Sundays) — I wasn’t even...
