Creation and the Trinity

I was reading Bavinck the other day and ran across this thought: the doctrine of creation and the doctrine of the Trinity “stand and fall together.” This is a massive claim. It is one that I think many of us do not contemplate all that much, and I would dare say some of us may even question. It may be helpful to trace Bavinck’s thoughts on this point.

Honor? Your Father and Your Mother

When I was a kid my parents had me in church groups that got me memorizing Scripture. They seemed especially happy when we would come to passages like the fifth commandment: Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. I remember memorizing this and others like Eph 6:1-2; Col 3:2, etc.. Those passages stuck, and over the years I have found myself reflecting on them to greater and lesser degrees.
