Your asking me to define a holiday? Wow. I thought this thread would be rather simple. I would like to see biblical support for a holiday.
    From a conservative Presbyterian perspective, there is no such support:

  2. "Romanism" is Normative not Pejorative, Except to the Overly Sensitive

    The term Romanist is not normally used as a pejorative, despite the claims of the Roman Catholic.

    Is that any worse than calling someone a dimwit? Maybe it is.

    It may have been intended as an insult.
    But I can't find it in myself to feel insulted by it.
    Indeed, you should not.

    Romanist is but a normative term for Roman Catholics, just as Calvinist is a loose synonym for the Reformed that espouse a particular view

  4. The Gospel Is Not Just A Sentence

    Despite the claim of others, there is but one Gospel. In a fast food society that likes just snippets it is wrong to assume that but the concise summary of the Gospel in 1 Cor 15 is the only time that Paul calls something "the Gospel". For example, the entire letter of Romans is repeatedly referred to by Paul as "my Gospel".

  5. Genesis - A Literal Account of Creation

    Some serious hermeneutical hopscotch is needed to deny the literal meaning of the six days.

    1. The ordinance of the Sabbath is now doubtful if six days is not literal (Ex. 20:11).
