  • Our Ancient Foe

    from Tim Challies May 17, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Talk of the Devil and spiritual warfare makes some people roll their eyes. We live in an age of particle accelerators, microchips, and organ transplants. The Devil? Why, he’s nothing more than a medieval superstition created to scare naughty children. We can’t take any of that seriously. Keep Reading

  • How Do We Learn to Best Pick Our Battles?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. May 14, 2011 Category: Articles

    The devil, who is more crafty than any of the beasts of the field is well aware of the nature of our warfare.

    "Although the Great Schism occurred in the eleventh century, dealing with schismatic people in the local church has been a problem since the days of the apostles." This problem is the theme of Michael Brown's article in the current issue of Tabletalk. "Schism is a division within or split from a church. It occurs in a congregation or denomination when a faction is formed on the basis of something other than the faith once for all delivered to the saints. It is distinguished from heresy, which is false teaching about doctrine. While heresies can (and often do) lead to schisms, most schisms in the local church do not involve heresy. They usually erupt from some 'quarrel over opinions' (Rom. 14:1) in matters not essential to the faith." Keep Reading
