My name is Stephen Mulder. I am a wretched sinner saved by the amazing and, often times incomprehensibly, great grace of God. I am currently working on my Masters Degree (Master of Divinity) at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (RPTS), with a specialization in Biblical Counseling. I have a Bachelor of Arts in History from The King’s University. Besides studying history, I also had a bit of time to study music (I have a great love for the organ, once upon a time taught piano, and am currently teaching myself the bagpipes). I am also a confessing member of The Shelter: Reformed Presbyterian Church of Edmonton (RPCNA). Being a member of a presbyterian church means that I adhere to the Westminister Standards and due to my background in the Protestant Reformed Churches of America, I also adhere to the Three Forms of Unity: The Belgic Confession, The Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dordt.
This blog is essentially my place to post articles that I write and publish my thoughts on Scripture, church history, theology, and what it means to be a slave of Christ. Thus, I decided to name it after the Greek phrase for slaves of God (δουλοι θεου). We as Christians are called to be slaves of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ and not slaves to sin. For Jesus Christ bought, purchased, and redeemed us by His precious blood. Thus, every thought, word, and deed should be directed to the glory and praise of our Lord and Saviour. He deserves our never-ending praise! We were once the servants of sin, but God has called and brought us out of darkness into His service, by His abundant grace! What joy is ours! As the Apostle Paul says,
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. Romans 6:15 – 18
