Here’s a nice article by Nick Batzig on Dr. Lloyd-Jones’s influence on the formation of the Presbyterian Church in America – http://feedingonchrist.com/mlj-pca/ .
One of the links that I’ve had on this website for years is the link to Adrian Warnock’s articles on Dr. Lloyd-Jones. Sadly, I will no longer link to his page due his endorsement of sexual acts outside of marriage. I’m sorry that some people have a hatred for those who engage in homosexual acts, but that cannot undo God’s Word or His nature, or their need to repent of their sin.
This issue is probably going to be THE watershed issue of our day, but this has not come about overnight. This all started back in the 1800’s when churches began to permit those who questioned the inspiration of the Bible to teach in the seminaries and pastor congregations. Liberalism had enough momentum to have J. Gresham Machen kicked out of the Presbyterian Church, USA, after he had so adequately diagnosed what the real issue was.
And that issue is still today the same as it was in Machen’s day – is the Bible authoritative or not? The issue of homosexual acts is not about rights, but about the nature of sin and morality. It’s not about the redefinition of marriage, but about the redefinition of sin. And to redefine sin is to redefine (or change) the whole nature of our redemption and salvation, which therefore redefines (or changes) the One who redeems and saves.
But the Bible is plain – “I am the Lord, I change not” (Malachi 3:6) and “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
I have been looking through the site and have noticed quite a few dead links here and there. All the articles from Banner of Truth and Evangelical Times are broken, as well as most everything in the biography section.
Hopefully this will be corrected soon.
And if anyone reading this happens to know of good material about Dr. Lloyd-Jones that I don’t have linked here, or if you happen to have the correct links, just send me an email and I’ll add or change as necessary.
Thank you for your patience.

I would lay it down as a basic proposition that the primary task of the Church is not to educate man, is not to heal him physically or psychologically, it is not to make him happy. I will go further; it is not even to make him good. These are things that accompany salvation; and when the Church performs her true task she does incidentally educate men and give them knowledge and information, she does bring them happiness, she does make them good and better than they were. But my point is that those are not her primary objectives. Her primary purpose is not any of these; it is rather to put man into the right relationship with God, to reconcile man to God. This really does need to be emphasised at the present time, because this, it seems to me, is the essence of the modern fallacy. It has come into the Church and it is influencing the thinking of many in the Church—this notion that the business of the Church is to make people happy, or to integrate their lives, or to relieve their circumstances and improve their conditions.
