Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on Isaiah 6:13: "... the Church,
amidst the numerous afflictions which she endures, appears to have no
strength, and is supposed to be utterly ruined. Whenever this takes
place, let us fully believe that, notwithstanding these appearances,
there is still some concealed energy which though it be not immediately
manifest to our eyes, will at length yield its fruit. That energy lies
hidden in the word of the Lord, by which alone the Church is sustained."
J. A. Alexander on Isaiah 6:13: "However
frequently the people may seem to be destroyed, there shall still be a
surviving remnant, and however frequently that very remnant may appear
to perish, there shall still be a remnant of the remnant left, and this
indestructible residuum shall be the holy seed, the true church ..."

We now have 203 articles in the
Italian section of our website. Yesterday, Francesco De Lucia
e-mailed his first translation of the
Covenant Reformed News
(Italian) to interested persons in Italy. Below are some encouraging
quotes from readers of the Italian material.
"In the CPRC Italian section there are translations
of Reformed articles which are WONDERFULLY USEFUL." - Isernia
"Thank you for your commitment in translating
articles very useful to us, God bless you ... Thank you for your
commitment to this huge work of translation. God bless you and
strengthen you!" - Naples
"It is also thanks to your translations that I now
accept the doctrines of total depravity election, limited atonement,
irresistible grace, and the perseverance of the saints ... an
encouragement for you to continue ..." - Salerno
"All the CPRC Italian section is a true goldmine ...
I am reading some articles ... and I find them very edifying indeed. I
am reading particularly the eschatology section, and the brief and clear
articles by Rev. Ron Hanko are so useful. My felt gratitude for your
commitment and an encouragement to continue." - Perugia
