  • Ten Years Later

    from Tim Challies Sep 06, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The world has changed. We are not the same people we were on September 10, 2001. The events of September 11, 2001, and the events that followed in ensuing years have not only changed America but nations and peoples throughout the world. People are more afraid and less naïve. People are more aware of the differences between world religions and of the different cultures of those world religions. People are either more antagonistic towards the religion of their fathers or they are more committed adherents.  Keep Reading

    from Karisa Schlehr Sep 05, 2011 Category: Ligonier Resources

    Name any catastrophic event in the course of history, and it seems as if God has abandoned the human race. Where was He while the Israelites groaned in oppressive slavery for 400 years? Where was He during the Holocaust? Where was He on 9/11? It sometimes seems that God is silent, watching the horrors of life on earth without pity or concern. R.C. Sproul discusses this very issue—the role of God when the ideas of men collide and wreak havoc. This week you can get this paperback book for a donation of any amount.

  • A Primer on Legalism

    from Nathan W. Bingham Sep 02, 2011 Category: Articles

    The New Testament views Christian obedience as the practice of "good works." Christians are to be "rich in good works" (1 Tim. 6:18; cf. Matt. 5:16; Eph. 2:10; 2 Tim. 3:17; Titus 2:7, 14; 3:8, 14). A good deed is one done according to the right standard, God's revealed will; from a right motive, love for God and others; and with a right purpose, the glory of God. Keep Reading

  • Justification: The Heart of the Gospel

    from Nathan W. Bingham Aug 30, 2011 Category: Articles

    For the Apostle Paul, the doctrine of justification was the heart of the gospel (Rom. 1 :17; 3:21-5:21; Gal. 2:15-5:1). Martin Luther declared that justification was the doctrine by which "the church either stands or falls." R.C. Sproul's mentor John Gerstner goes further in reminding us that it's not only the church that stands or falls by this doctrine, "but the individual also." Keep Reading
