  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Philippians

    from Keith Mathison Jan 24, 2009 Category: Articles

    The epistle to the Philippians is the last of the four "prison epistles" of Paul. This letter was not written for one single purpose. Paul had a number of reasons for writing. Most of all, however, he wrote to them because he had a deep care and affection for them. The following are five of the most helpful commentaries on the epistle to the Philippians. Keep Reading
  • Repentance from First to Last

    from Chris Donato Jan 23, 2009 Category: Articles

    On October 31, 1517, Dr. Martin Luther posted his ninety-five theses on the academy bulletin board (which happened to be the church door in those days). Essentially, the theses rebuked church leaders for abusing indulgences. Indulgences, he argued, cannot forgive sins. Rather, they are in danger of bringing a false peace to the sinner's conscience -- a place reserved only for God's once-for-all justification of His children. Keep Reading

  • The Importance of Cultural Awareness (pt. 3)

    from R.C. Sproul Jan 20, 2009 Category: Articles

    If it is difficult for us to understand our own culture, imagine the horrors an alien would experience in trying to sort it out. Imagine a real life extraterrestial visiting our nation and trying to understand our behavior at the Stock Exchange or the Super Bowl. It would be something like the Martian who was ordered to observe our sporting games and report back to his superior. When his mission was accomplished he turned in his report about football, baseball, basketball, hockey, boxing, car racing, and others. Then he mentioned the strangest game of all. Keep Reading

No wonder then that we are called to be the light of the world. Every single one of us has a mission. We have all been sent to bear witness to Christ. That means simply that we are all missionaries.

  • The Hardest Day of the Week

    from James Boice Jan 18, 2009 Category: Articles

    [New] life begins to grow within, and just as in the case of pregnancy there is a period when a woman is not even aware that she is pregnant, so there can be the same thing spiritually. The life is there, but the person does not yet know what has happened. However, things are starting to change. The person is beginning to have an interest in spiritual things. He finds himself hungering for the Word of God. He reads it. He begins to feed upon it. Keep Reading
  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Hosea

    from Keith Mathison Jan 17, 2009 Category: Articles

    Hosea's prophetic ministry to the northern kingdom of Israel likely began soon after the ministry of the prophet Amos (ca. 752-750). Although little is known about the prophet himself outside of what can be learned from the book that bears his name, his basic message of judgment and hope is clear. The following are five of the most helpful commentaries on the book of Hosea. Keep Reading
