  • What Are We to Make of the Casey Anthony Decision?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 15, 2011 Category: Articles

    Nothing. A little girl died. She might have been murdered. It might have been an accident. It might have been somewhere in between. Her mother may be a murderer, or she may merely be a slightly more dramatic sinner than most of us.  She came by her sin naturally, inheriting it from her parents, just like the rest of us. Her verdict may have been a mistake, a travesty of justice, a regrettable inevitability, or the right thing. I don’t know, and I suspect, neither do any of you.  Keep Reading

  • R.C. Sproul on Angels

    from Karisa Schlehr Jul 14, 2011 Category: R.C. Sproul

    Angels are part and parcel of the biblical message from early in creation, from the book of Genesis all the way to the book of Revelation. We don’t simply see a flurry of angelic activity concentrated in the pages of the New Testament during the life of Jesus; we encounter them throughout the whole scope of redemptive history.

  • A Sacrificial Ethic

    from Tim Challies Jul 14, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Paul the apostle wrote to the Romans, encouraging them to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship” (12:1). The notion of sacrifice may seem foreign to our contemporary ears today, but it certainly would not have been so during the first century when the apostle penned these words. In fact, the image of sacrifice was implicit in just about everyone’s understanding of worship in antiquity. It makes perfect sense, therefore, for Paul to exhort his readers to spiritual worship using the imagery of sacrifice. Keep Reading
  • R.C. Sproul on Heaven

    from Karisa Schlehr Jul 12, 2011 Category: Ligonier Resources

    One cannot take Christianity seriously without seeing the central importance of the concept of heaven. There really is a “pie-in-the-sky” idea that is integral to the Bible, and especially to the New Testament, and I’m afraid we’ve lost our appetite for the delights God has stored up for His people in the future. Everyone, Christian or not, longs for reunion with those loved ones who have gone on before them, but the Christian longs to be with Christ. I cannot wait to see my father, my mother, and my friends who have died when I get to heaven, but the ultimate hope of my soul is to see the resurrected Christ in His Father’s house, and He also has promised that that will happen.

  • A Culture of Sacrifice

    from Tim Challies Jul 12, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    It was October 25, 2007, and the moon shone brightly over the rugged terrain of eastern Afghanistan. Elements of 1st Platoon, B Company (173rd Airborne Brigade), walked cautiously back to their outpost after completing their assigned mission. But unknown to them, an unseen enemy waited in ambush. In the three minutes of confusion and chaos that comprised this surprise attack, then Specialist Sal Giunta responded under the intense enemy fire with such courage that he was nominated for, and eventually received, America’s highest award for valor, the Medal of Honor. When asked why he braved incessant machine-gun and small-arms fire during the ambush to charge the enemy alone in search of one of his fellow soldiers, his straightforward reply was, 'He would have done the same for me.'

  • The Realities of Heaven, Hell, Angels and Demons

    from Karisa Schlehr Jul 11, 2011 Category: Ligonier Resources

    The concept of the invisible spiritual realm is something which is difficult for us to grasp. What we can see, hear, and feel we can take on face value that it is reality. But what about those things that are unseen? Scripture speaks about heaven, hell, angels and demons which are a part of this invisible spiritual realm. In his new book Unseen Realities: Heaven, Hell, Angels and Demons, R.C. Sproul helps us gain an understanding of these things so that we can come to a realisation that in fact all four are true realities that impact upon our everyday lives. Keep Reading
