Have you heard the phrase “This is not grandfather’s church,” a popular saying among the cool and hip churches, especially in America? If so, have you ever wondered where this mysterious “grandfather’s church” is?

Well, you can stop searching now, because you’ve finally found it! You’ve knocked on the door, and it is now open! Welcome to Reformert.no! This is the favorite church website of all elderly parents; everyone from the grand to the great-great! All of them love to read Reformert.no while listening to classic hymns like A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. Afterward, they like to go out to play bingo. Won’t you join?

Seriously Now

My name is Tom-Roger Mittag. And I’m a theology student and the author here at Reformert.no. If you didn’t notice, I was being a little ironic there. But there is still some truth to what I said. You’ve probably noticed how important it is to be yourself today. One must be one’s authentic self, without falsehood and hypocrisy. I completely agree with that. There is far too much dishonesty out there in Norway today. There are far too many people pretending to be something other than what they are, such as old bald pastors wearing trendy skinny jeans to be cool, and rainbow men marching around the street with feminine war paint on.

I don’t want to be part of that. That’s why I created this website so I can speak openly and honestly about my conservative and reformed Christian faith. If you think that sounds interesting, brush off the dust on your Bible, and let’s study it together. And let’s actually be proud of everything that’s written, instead of trying to excuse God for what he wrote. Then we can sing the psalter together with joy in our hearts, as the Apostles did.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
