Stylos is the blog of Jeff Riddle, a Reformed Baptist Pastor in North Garden, Virginia. The title "Stylos" is the Greek word for pillar. In 1 Timothy 3:15 Paul urges his readers to consider "how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar (stylos) and ground of the truth."

Kept Pure in All Ages Conference: March 27-28, 2020 @ Five Solas Church, Reedsburg, Wisconsin
looking forward to speaking at the upcoming "Kept Pure in All Ages" conference
at Five Points Church (OPC) in Reedsburg, Wisconsin on Friday-Saturday, March
have an interest in the Confessional Text movement and live in the Midwest
region (or anywhere else, for that matter), I hope you will consider attending and supporting this event,
especially if you were not able to attend the Text and Canon Conference in
Atlanta but were encouraged by listening to the messages. I will be preparing new messages for this conference that will hopefully reinforce and expand upon many of the themes covered in Atlanta.
Pastor and conference co-speaker Christian McShaffrey is the creator of the TR-Friendly Church Directory.
He sent out this announcement for the conference today:
cordially invited to the first annual “Kept Pure in All
on the text of Holy Scripture. Here are the details:
Begins: March 27, 2020 at 6:30 p.m.
Ends: March 28, 2020 at 12:00 m. *
Place: Five Solas Church (Reedsburg, WI)
Speaker: Dr. Jeffrey T. Riddle
This conference will issue an earnest-but-brotherly call to return to the
classical Protestant view of the Biblical text of scripture which led our
fathers in the faith to receive the Textus Receptus as the authentic Word
of God; especially in light of the radical changes that are coming to both the
Greek NT text and our English translations.

Thank you for your interest in the authentic text of scripture and we do hope
to see you at the conference.
