George Gillespie on Idolatry and Superstition

§6. The Bishop has yet a third dart to throw at us: If the church (he says)[1] has power, upon occasional motives, to appoint occasional fasts or festivities, may not she, for constant and eternal blessings, which do infinitely excel all occasional benefits, appoint...

About CRTA

The Center for Reformed Theology and Apologetics is dedicated to providing biblically sound online resources for the edification of God’s people. Foundational to our mission is our identity as a confessionally Reformed group of sites who hold unswervingly to Scripture, and the historic Christian faith. We are committed to the system of doctrine known as Calvinism, which is the most biblically faithful systematization of the Bible’s teachings concerning our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Owners are comprised of ministers and laymen who are dedicated servants of Jesus Christ, committed to the bible and hold to a strict subscriptionist view of the 1647 Westminster Standards. They worship at Grace Chapel in Crossville TN.

We also desire to direct people to some of the best places to find biblical and exegetical resources (like Logos) for Scriptural study.

True Worship

God alone determines the manner in which sinners are to approach Him. This is only accomplished through Jesus Christ, by his blood, in the power of the Spirit and according to His word. This is called the Regulative Principle of Worship.

Reformed Theology

The Reformation of theology and propagation of Reformed Theology was a revival of Augustinianism to the merits of Jesus Christ, focusing on the slogans of grace: sola gratia, sola Christus, sola fide, soli Deo gloria, sola scriptura, as well as the doctrines of grace (well defined by the Synod of Dordt), the regulative principle of worship, and the centrality of the preached word.


Apologetics is the rational biblical defense of Jesus Christ and His Word against Satanic philosophies (cults (like Mormonism and Jehovah’s Witnesses), atheism, agnosticism, Socinianism, Roman Catholicism, false religions like Islam, etc…) which contest His veracity and revealed will contained in the Holy Bible.
