  • A Primer on Inerrancy (pt. 5)

    from John Gerstner Mar 16, 2011 Category: Articles

    InerrancyIn this excerpt from John Gerstner’s Primitive Theology, Dr. Gerstner looks at the issue of inerrancy and seeks briefly and non-technically to present a case for Bible Inerrancy that a serious-minded layman can follow and evaluate. Though by no means an exhaustive treatment, it is one that is sound and faithful to the Scriptures. This is the fifth part of the series. Dr. Gerstner has looked at four unsound bases for sound doctrine and is now in the midst of a discussion of a sound basis for sound doctrine. Keep Reading
  • Ministering by the Life-Giving Spirit

    from Tim Challies Mar 15, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Following a 1970s Jesus Movement conversion, I served in youth ministry, where I subjected poor students to nearly every fad imaginable — all, I told myself, to have young people come to Christ. I then served as a pastor, an office I have held for thirty years. Along the way, I have made many blunders — far too many to chronicle here. One mistake that I hope to avoid, however, is ministering with external methods that cannot give life. Keep Reading

  • The Smell of Death Surrounds You

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Mar 13, 2011 Category: Articles

    I found myself, when a recent graduate of Reformed Theological Seminary persuaded of two truths. First, I understood and believed the Reformed faith. Second, I wasn’t much different from my unbelieving neighbors. The problem wasn’t that my theology was wrong. The problem was that it was stuck. My head was crammed full of sound Reformed doctrine, but it wasn’t getting to my heart, and out my fingers. I suffered from theological constipation. Keep Reading

  • The Goodness of the Law

    from Tim Challies Mar 10, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his contribution to this month's issue of Tabletalk, R.C. Sproul wonders how the psalmist can have such great love for God's law. "'Oh how I love your law!' (Ps. 119:97). What a strange statement of affection. Why would anyone direct his love toward the law of God? The law limits our choices, restricts our freedom, torments our consciences, and pushes us down with a mighty weight that cannot be overcome, and yet the psalmist declares his affection for the law in passionate terms. He calls the law sweeter than honey to his mouth (Ps. 119:3)." Keep Reading
