  • The Goodness of the Law

    from Tim Challies Mar 10, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his contribution to this month's issue of Tabletalk, R.C. Sproul wonders how the psalmist can have such great love for God's law. "'Oh how I love your law!' (Ps. 119:97). What a strange statement of affection. Why would anyone direct his love toward the law of God? The law limits our choices, restricts our freedom, torments our consciences, and pushes us down with a mighty weight that cannot be overcome, and yet the psalmist declares his affection for the law in passionate terms. He calls the law sweeter than honey to his mouth (Ps. 119:3)." Keep Reading

  • Juicy Nuggets In the Valley of Death

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Mar 08, 2011 Category: Articles

    One of the hardships that comes with walking through the Valley of the Shadow of Death is what you are expected to carry out. We tend to think that in that valley there grows a very special sort of tree, a wisdom, or insight tree. We think that this rarest of trees is perpetually heavy laden with low hanging, choice, juicy morsels of brilliance. You’re supposed to bring these precious nuggets out the other side to share with your friends.  Understandably, though they should know better, some who trek this valley think they’ve found this precious fruit. The quiet whispers of death on the prowl beget therefore footprints-in-the-sand poems and too often, whole therapeutic books of lessons learned. Keep Reading
  • Eject Orthodoxy, Lose Your Voice

    from David Wells Mar 08, 2011 Category: Articles

    "The stream of historic orthodoxy that once watered the evangelical soul is now dammed by a worldliness that many fail to recognize as worldliness because of the cultural innocence with which it presents itself. To be sure, this orthodoxy never was infallible, nor was it without its blemishes and foibles, but I am far from persuaded that the emancipation from its theological core that much of evangelicalism is effecting has resulted in greater biblical fidelity. In fact, the result is just the opposite. We now have less biblical fidelity, less interest in truth, less seriousness, less depth, and less capacity to speak the Word of God to our own generation in a way that offers an alternative to what it already thinks."  Keep Reading
  • A Primer on Inerrancy (pt. 3)

    from John Gerstner Mar 08, 2011 Category: Articles

    InerrancyIn this excerpt from John Gerstner’s Primitive Theology, Dr. Gerstner looks at the issue of inerrancy and seeks briefly and non-technically to present a case for Bible Inerrancy that a serious-minded layman can follow and evaluate.

  • Will Sin Go Unpunished?

    from R.C. Sproul Mar 07, 2011 Category: R.C. Sproul

    All things being equal, God does desire that no one should perish. But all things are not equal. Sin is real. Sin violates God’s holiness and righteousness. God also is not willing that sin should go unpunished. He desires as well that His holiness should be vindicated.... When the preceptive will is violated, things are no longer equal.  Keep Reading
