  • Becoming Part of the Bride

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 04, 2009 Category: Articles

    When Christ purchased His bride, He bought a bride who was "damaged merchandise." His bride was sullied by manifest impurities. She was covered by spots and marred by wrinkles. Yet what He purchased He also sanctifies:
    Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. (Eph. 5:25-27, NIV)

  • An Interview With Keith Mathison

    from Burk Parsons Sep 30, 2009 Category: Articles

    I first came in contact with Keith Mathison while in college. I attended an historically Dispensational college where a giant Clarence Larkin Dispensational chart adorned one of the classrooms. I came across a new book through Tabletalk magazine called Dispensationalism: Rightly Dividing the People of God? published by P&R in 1995 by a guy named Mathison who, I discovered, was a student of the seminary where many of my professors graduated from.

  • The Lifelong Pursuit of Godly Wisdom

    from Burk Parsons Sep 30, 2009 Category: Articles

    The Proverbs tell us "Blessed is the one who finds wisdom and the one who gets understanding" (Proverbs 3:13). The beginning of wisdom is fearing the Lord, the path of wisdom is worshiping the Lord, and the end of wisdom is falling down in the presence of the Lord before His face in glory. As we all have, I have met many men in my life from whom I have learned much. Keep Reading
  • Treasures on Earth

    from John Piper Sep 29, 2009 Category: Articles

    The inner essence of worship is treasuring Jesus as infinitely valuable above everything. The outer forms of worship are the acts that show how much we treasure God. Therefore, all of life is meant to be worship because God said whether you eat or drink or whatever you do--all of life--do it all to show how valuable the glory of God is to you (1 Cor. 10:31). Money and possessions are a big part of life, and therefore God intends them to be a big part of worship. So the way we worship with our money and our possessions is to get them and use them and lose them in a way that shows how much we treasure Jesus, not money. Keep Reading

  • The Gain of Godliness

    from Terry Johnson Sep 28, 2009 Category: Articles

    Rich people are materialistic. We all know it. All they care about is their money and things. Or so I thought. My background consists of a blue-collar neighborhood and an inner-city high school in Southern California. My quick judgment of wealthy people, when first I encountered them, was that they were superficial, worldly, and materialistic. They were caught up in things and appearances. They lacked the simplicity of the virtuous poor, the salt of the earth, among whom I numbered myself. Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 8 - R.C. Sproul

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Sproul brought the conference to a close with a message entitled He Is Risen! -- The Resurrection and Worship. Dr. Sproul read from Exodus 19, the preamble to the giving of the Decalogue. Imagine that you were there: "On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast." And Moses was told to warn the people, "lest they break through to the Lord to look and many of them perish." Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 7 - Alistair Begg

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Begg returned to the pulpit to bring a message entitled In the Likeness of His Resurrection -- The Bodily Resurrection of the Believer, taking his text from 2 Corinthians 5. He then read a portion of a message that a pastor might deliver at a funeral.  A text that affirms not just the continuity of life, but the resurrection of the physical body.  The Christian's view of death and resurrection ought to be a great apologetic in our day.  There is a reason why graveyards used to be near churches. It makes sense. We have the anticipation of a new heavens and a new earth to look forward to.  Keep Reading
