Why I Am Reformed

By R. J. Rushdoony

Over the years, I have often been asked what made me a Calvinist, and now the Chalcedon staff has asked that I write an answer to this question.

Calvinistic Comprehensiveness

By P. Andrew Sandlin

The chief conceptual distinctive of Calvinism is covenant theology; the chief material distinctive of Calvinism is comprehensive religion. On these two hinges swing the fortunes of a healthy Calvinism.

Perseverance In Our Calling

By Mark R. Rushdoony

Christ's purpose, and his confession was that he yielded willingly to the Father's will no matter how agonizing that act was. The atonement saves us and enables us to fight the good fight of faith. Christ obeyed the Father's will; we serve him by taking up our cross and following.

Calvin and Powerful Preaching

In the midst of confusion and error regarding the law of God, the Reformed segment of the church speaks a clear and definite word.

By Steve M. Schlissel

This article by Steve Schlissel pinpoints one of the premier errors of the modern church. As he so incisively shows, not only does the pietistic spirit detract from the Christian's true calling in the earth, it does not even reflect genuine piety. Before the church can be recalled to its world-conquering vision, it must jettison the Morbid Introspectionism Schlissel so deftly refutes.
