I call upon You, Lord, God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob and Israel, You who are the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the God who, through the abundance of your mercy, was well-pleased towards us so that we may know You, who made heaven and earth, who rules over all, You who are the one and the true God, above whom there is no other God; You who, by our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, give to every one who reads this writing to know You, that You alone are God, to be strengthened in You, and to avoid every heretical and godless and impious teaching.

St Irenaeus of Lyons, Against the Heresies 3:6:4

Dr. Richard Pratt Jr. is Coming to Rivermont!

I am both thrilled and proud to share that our church, Rivermont Presbyterian Church, in Lynchburg, VA will be hosting Dr. Richard Pratt April 18 and 19. Dr. Pratt is the founder of Third Millennium Ministries; he chaired the Old Testament Dept. and taught at Reformed Theological Seminary for 21 years; and has authored a number of great books, including Every Thought Captive, one of the best primer texts for introducing presuppositionalist apologetics.

“The goal will be to provide an inspiring portrait of the ‘big picture’ of our biblical faith, focusing on the unfolding of God’s purpose for our lives as his people.”

The schedule:

Sunday 8:30 and 11:00 AM: The Vision of Christ in the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:5—15)

Sunday School at 9:35 AM: God Original Plan for the World (Gen 1:26—28)

Sunday Evening at 6:30 PM: The Unfrozen Chosen in God’s Plan (Gen 12:1—3)

Monday Evening at 7:00 PM: Fighting for Victory (Josh 1:6—9)
