  • Amen

    from R.C. Sproul Nov 03, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    And all the people said… “Amen!” The “amen corner” has had an important place in the life of the church throughout the ages. However, it is rare to find such a spot among Presbyterians. We are known as God’s frozen chosen for a reason. It has been said that the Methodists like to shout “Fire,” the Baptists like to shout “Water,” and the Presbyterians like to softly say, “Order, order.” Nevertheless, in spite of the idiosyncrasies of various ecclesiastical persuasions, the function of the word amen far transcends denominational usages in the modern era.

    On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther tacked up 95 theses on the church door at Wittenberg.

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Oct 29, 2011 Category: Articles

    What a strange and wonderful providence that this machine that sits on my lap, that is capable of astounding wonders, that employs the latest and greatest of technology and design spends most of its energy as a “Way Back” machine. Sure, I write things, I edit things, I study things with my laptop. But the one app that is operating more than any other is itunes, playing music from my childhood. Here’s a little playlist confession- when I booted up this morning itunes started with Stevie Wonder’s hit for which this piece is named, followed by the Four Tops ode to my beloved bride, “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I Got.” Keep Reading
