  • West Coast Conference: Early Bird Rates End August 7th

    from Karisa Schlehr Aug 04, 2009 Category: Events

    Have you ever stopped to genuinely contemplate the significance of the resurrection? Do you think of it as simply the reason for a spring holiday or as the event upon which Christianity stands or falls? Keep Reading
  • Is It Just a Money Issue?

    from Burk Parsons Aug 03, 2009 Category: Articles

    Several years after my father's death in 1992 I found an old shoebox among my father's belongings. Among the various items in the shoebox, I came across a stack of letters that my father had written just prior to his death. As I began to read the first letter I quickly realized he had written them to me but that he never had the opportunity to give them to me because his cancer consumed his body more quickly than the oncologist had expected. In one of the letters, my father wrote, "Learn to live with a little less." Keep Reading
  • Accepting Correction from the Father

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 02, 2009 Category: Articles

    Some people have a hard time even thinking of God as "Father" because of the horrible abuse they suffered from their earthly fathers' hands. But God is a Father who never abuses His children, although He does punish them. He chastens those whom He loves. It is wise for the child of God to fear the corrective wrath of the Father.

  • Fostering Fear of God

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 31, 2009 Category: Articles

    I recently heard a young Christian remark, "I have no fear of dying." When I heard this comment I thought to myself, "I wish I could say that." I am not afraid of death. I believe that death for the Christian is a glorious transition to heaven. I am not afraid of going to heaven. It's the process that frightens me. I don't know by what means I will die. It may be via a process of suffering, and that frightens me. I know that even this shouldn't frighten me. There are lots of things that frighten me that I shouldn't let frighten me. The Scripture declares that perfect love casts out fear. But love is still imperfect, and fear hangs around. Keep Reading
  • Covenant Prosecutors

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 30, 2009 Category: Articles

    I don't remember the exact words. They went something like this: "He was a thundering paradox of a man." These words served as the opening lines of William Manchester's classic biography of General Douglas MacArthur. In this work, MacArthur was shown as a multi-faceted man whose essence could not be crystallized by a single attribute. In like manner, the prophets of the Old Testament were men of multi-faceted and multi-dimensioned responsibilities and behavior. Keep Reading
  • Developing a Passion for God

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 29, 2009 Category: Articles

    I remember a stained-glass window that adorned the library of my alma mater. It was situated above the stairwell at the second-floor landing. In leaded letters, the words in the window declared, "Knowledge is power." Keep Reading
  • BibleWorks 8 - A Review

    from Keith Mathison Jul 28, 2009 Category: Articles

    Although available since 1992, I first began using BibleWorks (version 6) for the first time in 2003. The most recent version, BibleWorks 8, was released in 2008. For the purposes of this post, I am reviewing BibleWorks 8. In the interest of full disclosure, I am reviewing a review copy sent to me gratis by BibleWorks. Keep Reading
  • Calvin & Culture, Reconsidered

    from Gene Edward Veith Jul 27, 2009 Category: Articles

    One of the greatest social scientists credits John Calvin for the rise of capitalism and, by extension, modern Western culture itself. That is quite an influence and quite a tribute to Calvin. Nevertheless, though there is some truth to the claim, the specific scholarship behind it demonstrates a profound misunderstanding, not only of Calvin but of the Reformation. Keep Reading
  • The Presence of Christ

    from R.C. Sproul Jul 26, 2009 Category: Articles

    The Heidelberg Catechism states, in the answer to Question 47, "Christ is true man and true God. With respect to His human nature He is no longer on earth, but with respect to His divinity, majesty, grace, and Spirit He is never absent from us." This statement tried to do justice to Jesus' own teaching before He left this planet. Keep Reading
