You've a keen eye!
Our church does not have a "statement of faith", per se. In our docs, we simply affirm the BFM. In the future I want us to revisit our Covenant, and write our own Statement of Faith, one closely based on the NHBC because it is a good middle ground for the So. Baptist Convention.
The 2LBC or Philly Confession would probably not fly well with some here in our town, most were raised as Methodists. ;-)

The circles is where it's all at. Instead of blasting all your contacts with the same status, you can share selectively, and hide selectively. Plus you can make it public (like a Twitter, or even a blog since there is no limit on length), and you can view updates per circle rather than from all your contacts (and this without 'muting' people like on Facebook). Anyway, loving it...

This is a FANTASTIC and important discussion. Excellent distinctions made by Horton, and great thoughts by Keller at the end (i.e. Pastors not being allowed to be part of the organic church).

after watching the video again I can better understand their points and must admit I misunderstood them the first time. In my opinion, Horton's definition of the church as an institution and as an organism is not necessary. The difficulty in speaking as a believer with a biblically informed opinion (as Keller speaks of) without being considered as the assumed spokesman for the institution they represent must be difficult for them and others in similar positions (such as yourself). Of course, that could be avoided if they weren't considered the representatives of said institutions in the first place. Anyways, while the institution/organic definition of God's family still makes me queasy, at least they weren't saying anything as appalling as I had first assumed. I appreciate your dialogue with me on this. My respect for these fellows has been restored to its original form and I have learned a valuable lesson on listening more carefully before making assumptions.

John Murray on Christian Sabbath Observance:

[From John Murray's commentary on The Epistle to the Romans, Eerdmans: 1997, 257-258]:

The Sabbath institution is a creation ordinance. It did not begin to have relevance at Sinai when the ten commandments were given to Moses on two tables (cf. Gen. 2:2,3; Exod. 16:21-23). It was, however, incorporated in the law promulgated at Sinai and this we would expect in view of the significance and purpose as enunciated in Genesis 2:2,3. It is so embedded in this covenant law that to regard it as of different character from its context in respect of abiding relevance goes counter to the unity and basic significance of what was inscribed on the two tables. Our Lord himself tells us of its purpose and claims it for his messianic Lordship (Mark 2:28). The thesis we are now considering [that Sabbath observance is not in any way to be maintained by Christians] would have to assume that the pattern provided by God himself (Gen. 2:2,3) in the work of creation (cf. also Exod. 20:11; 31:17) has no longer any relevance for the regulation of man's life on earth, that only nine of the ten words of the decalogue have authority for Christians, that the beneficent design contemplated in the original institution (Mark 2:28) has no application under the gospel, and that the lordship of Christ exercised over the Sabbath was for the purpose of abolishing it as an institution to be observed. These are the necessary conclusions to be drawn from the assumption in question. There is no evidence to support any of these conclusions, and, when they are combined and their cumulative force frankly weighed, it is then that the whole analogy of Scripture is shown to be contradicted by the assumption concerned.
