I am a web application developer working in PHP/MySQL/JQuery and related technologies. I also have attended two years of seminary. I am puritan in my theology and would point to the Westminster Standards as a good guide for theological questions.

Okay, let me go ahead and update the question and add some more stuff. I just thought that the Achen story was compelling.

Source for that can be found at bpnews.net/bpnews.asp?ID=15630. Can't find the focus on the family study they mention with a quick search.

One can be found here: ncfic.org/articlemodule/view_article/id/8/src numbers are more extreme than mine. There are others as well but I can't find them now.

Very well said. Not the answer I was expecting, but I suspect you are totally correct.

That is what I was going for (biblically accurate) :-) Glad you see that. The idea of one parent bringing a child into the covenant community continues into the NT with Paul's statement in 1 Cor 7:14.

I know that this is common in Judaism after Christ to think this way, but I know of no place in scripture that teaches this. Men are consistently seen as the head of their families in Scripture.

Actually @JimG. I am thinking you are misunderstanding what idolatry is and how deep it goes in all of us. But I may be wrong. :-)

comment Can you explain this Free Will / Predestination illustration?
So this is not truly 'free will' as in the freedom to choose anything. I am 'constrained' to do what my heart desires, and God has created my heart. Will remove the -1 if you edit the post.

comment Can you explain this Free Will / Predestination illustration?
You say that a reformed theologian would hold the doctrines of predestination and free will equal. That is not correct. A reformed theologian would consider free will a false term but speak in terms of free moral agency. That is that we always choose what we most want to do. That may be giving the man pointing the gun at me my wallet (I don't really want to do it but given all options it appears to be the best one and what I most want), or eating a juicy strawberry. The issue is that God has made us and has crafted us in such a way as our highest desire is to always follow HIs plan.

Idolatry is giving honor or glory to anything but God, in it's grossest form it means associating an object with a deity but that is not the full definition. Calvin called humans idol factories. We make idols of many many different things all day long. So I stand by my statement.

-1 because you mis-characterize reformed theology.
