  • Resembling God - Ligonier Leadership Conference (VIII)

    from Chris Donato Oct 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    "Mankind is made to resemble God. What, then, does it mean to be made in the image of God?" --Ligon Duncan, "Created in God's Image," Ligonier Leadership Conference.  The question quoted above is that which Dr. Duncan sought to answer throughout his second discussion at the Ligonier leadership conference. His answer was full-orbed, challenging, and thought-provoking. Among the many great points, one in particular stood out: "We are to represent God's ownership and interests in His creation." How glorious--and yet so daunting. Keep Reading
  • Indwelt by Christ - Ligonier Leadership Conference (VII)

    from Nicholas Batzig Oct 21, 2009 Category: Events

    In his second address, Dr. Ferguson drew attention to the words of the apostle Paul in Romans 8:1-17. One of the first things that we must recognize as we approach these verses is that there is a peculiar temptation to read what the apostle Paul says about the work of the Spirit in terms of the need we have for personal growth, rather than as a statement of the fullness of blessing we have in Christ.

  • The Word Became Flesh - Ligonier Leadership Conference (VI)

    from Keith Mathison Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Ligon Duncan reminds us that our answer to the question "Who is Jesus?" is of crucial importance.  Every religion and cult has a different answer to that question.  Many individuals in our culture will not hesitate to tell us: "To me, Jesus is...."   Keep Reading
  • The Abiding Significance of Scripture - Ligonier Leadership Conference (V)

    from Nicholas Batzig Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    "When people don't want to listen to preaching, the remedy is preaching." --Sinclair Ferguson In his first address at the ministry leadership conference, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson led off with the well known words of 2 Timothy 3:14-16. In these verses the apostle Paul admonished Timothy with regard to the nature and importance of Scripture for the people of God.  Keep Reading
  • Wherever the Word Is, There Is God - Ligonier Leadership Conference (IV)

    from Chris Donato Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    During His temptation in the wilderness nothing less than the messianic kingship of God's anointed was at stake. We see this especially with respect to the temptation involving "all the kingdoms of the world" (Matt. 4:8). Who was the real prince? Jesus or Satan? Ultimately at stake, then, was victory over Satan's kingdom by the kingdom of God.  Keep Reading
  • The Godness of God - Ligonier Leadership Conference (III)

    from Robert Rothwell Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Like many people, I did not grow up in a Reformed church, and Calvinism was often used as a dirty word in some of the churches I attended. Although when I was younger I often concurred with that evaluation of Reformed theology, I have to admit that I did find myself wrestling with those biblical passages that portray the absolute sovereignty of the Lord. I also wondered how God could truly be called God if, as I was often taught, He "limited" His sovereignty so that He was not truly in charge of the decisions of men and women. Keep Reading
  • Religious in All Things - Ligonier Leadership Conference (II)

    from Nicholas Batzig Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Sproul opened the Ligonier leadership conference with the words of Acts 17:16-28, the well-known account of Paul in the Areopagus. When Paul came into this city, instead of being overwhelmed by its art or Aristotelian philosophy, he was rather distressed in spirit over the idolatry in the city. Paul made a statement that was dripping with sarcasm: "Men, I see that in all things you are very religious." He was not commending their attempts at worship, he was showing them the futility of their idolatry. They were essentially religious idolaters. Keep Reading
  • Forgotten Providence - Ligonier Leadership Conference (I)

    from Robert Rothwell Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Sproul appropriately kicks off Ligonier's Pillars of the Christian Faith leadership conference with a message on creation and providence, which are foundational elements of any worldview, let alone the Christian faith. His message on how we often forget the providence of God ought to strike a chord with all of us. We believers spend so much time defending and arguing about creation that we forget about how God not only worked long ago to get things started but He also works today to keep everything going.

  • Don’t Retire; We Need You

    from Alex Chediak Oct 19, 2009 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    You may have heard that retirement can kill you. Men and women die of boredom, for lack of intellectual challenge, or from the deafening silence that can accompany a spouse's death. Depressed saving accounts may represent another motivation to stay gainfully employed. Even if times were better, you might simply prefer staying active in your career, maintaining a position of influence that you've worked hard to reach. Keep Reading
