In one of Randy’s classes yesterday the students raised a wide range of intriguing questions about the Lord’s Supper. Several of the inquiries concerned fencing and admittance to the ordinance. A couple of interesting examples included: Can a woman come to the Table during her cycle? If you know your Bible but are uncertain about the nature of the OT ceremonial law, you can see how this would be a compelling question. Should you fence someone who smokes or imbibes alcohol? The fundamentalists apparently arrived before the Reformed. The students released another avalanche of questions on ‘Randy the Valiant’ when covering the topic of marriage and divorce. They already embraced the basic Confessional view on divorce and remarriage, but you still have to untie a host of knotty questions — no matter where you are in the world. In fact, the additional layers of Eastern culture only deepen the difficulty for those with a Western mind.
Thank you for your fervent, faith-filled supplications.
