  • R.C. Sproul on Luther & the Reformation (Plus a Free Audiobook Download)

    from Karisa Schlehr Oct 31, 2011 Category: Articles

    On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther tacked up 95 theses on the church door at Wittenberg. With this act, he hoped to provoke a discussion among the scholars about the abuses of the indulgences by the Roman Catholic Church. He was not trying to create a public furor by any means, but within a fortnight, these theses had spread through the country like wildfire. The last thing Luther had in mind was to start some kind of major controversy, but nevertheless major controversy did begin.

  • A Man More Sinned Against than Sinning?: The Portrait of Martin Luther in Contemporary New Testament Scholarship

    from Carl R. Trueman Oct 30, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    To put it bluntly, it seems to me that the current revision of the doctrine of justification as formulated by the advocates of the so-called New Perspective on Paul is nothing less than a fundamental repudiation not just of that Protestantism which seeks to stand within the creedal and doctrinal trajectories of the Reformation but also of virtually the entire Western tradition on justification from at least as far back as Augustine.

  • I Wish Those Days Would Come Back Once More

    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

    Martin Luther was not only a leader in the 16th century Protestant Reformation, but he was also more importantly a diligent student of Scripture.

  • Nothing Like the Church

    from Robert Rayburn Oct 27, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    It should come as no surprise that in Western culture, triumphantly individualistic as it is, institutions tend to suffer in people’s estimations. Christians, shaped too much by this culture, predictably have a diminished appreciation even for their very own institution. They may recognize a certain need for the church, but neither loyalty to and love for her, on the one hand, nor a conviction that an individual Christian’s fortunes are bound up with those of the church, on the other, is as central to Christian piety as in earlier ages. Christians nowadays do not typically sing songs in their worship that express the same sentiment as did the once treasured hymns “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken,” “The Church’s One Foundation,” or “I Love Thy Kingdom Lord.” Keep Reading
