  • Saved by Grace - Ligonier Leadership Conference (IX)

    from Keith Mathison Oct 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    "When we exalt God's holiness and put man in his rightful place, we magnify grace." --Steve Lawson, "Saved by Grace," Ligonier Leadership Conference. It seems to be common knowledge among "enlightened" Christians that grace is somehow exalted when we soften the holiness of God and diminish the wrath of God, while at the same time elevating our view of man. As Dr. Lawson reminds us in his lecture today, the exact opposite is the truth. Keep Reading
  • 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

  • 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
