  • True Catholicism

    from Burk Parsons Sep 02, 2009 Category: Articles

    Coram Deo: Living Before the Face of God We have all heard it said, and some of you have even said it: "Let's just agree to disagree." If memory serves me, I have never used that expression, primarily because I don't think it makes much sense and because I think people who use the expression don't make much sense when they use it in their attempt to end disagreements. Nevertheless, I think I know what people mean by the expression. Keep Reading

  • Enjoying Communion with God

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

    When the disciples walked the road to Emmaus twenty centuries ago, Jesus concealed His identity so that they didn't recognize the "stranger" at their side. These men were not in a garden. There were no roses covered with dew. But they walked and talked with the risen Christ. What was their experience like? When their eyes were finally opened and they recognized Jesus, He suddenly vanished and they said to one another, "Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?" (Luke 24:32, NASB). Keep Reading
  • Receiving the Revelation

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 27, 2009 Category: Articles

    Does nature reveal God? This question indicates a concern about a foundational issue to Christianity. The issue is, can God be known outside of the church or a religious environment? Keep Reading

  • Recognizing that the Earth Is the Lord’s

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 25, 2009 Category: Articles

    It was Bonaventure who offered the thought: "In order that we may be able to extol and glorify God, and in order that we may advance to the knowledge of God, we must transfer to the divine that which pertains to the creature . . . nearly all creatures possess certain noble characteristics which furnish a source for our understanding of God, e.g., the lion possesses fortitude; the lamb, meekness; the rock, solidity; the serpent, prudence--hence it is necessary that many names be transferred to God."

  • Money, Money, Money

    from Gene Edward Veith Aug 24, 2009 Category: Articles

    Not long ago, I learned that thirty-eight percent of my retirement account has vanished and that my house is suddenly worth less than the mortgage I am paying on it. I wasn't wasteful or reckless. I didn't vandalize my own home or spend my life's savings on riotous living. But all of a sudden, through no particular fault of my own, a major part of my stash of money (small though it was) simply disappeared. Keep Reading
  • Reflecting on Our Episkopos

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 23, 2009 Category: Articles

    In the New Testament, the Greek word for bishop is the term episkopos. The word episkopos has a rich and fascinating history. It is made up of a prefix epi and a root scopus. We get the English word scope from this root. A scope is an instrument we use to look at things. We have microscopes to look at little things and telescopes to look at things that are far away. The prefix epi serves simply to intensify a root. There is, for example, knowledge (gnosis) and profound knowledge (epignosis). There is desire (thumia) and passionate desire or lust (epithumia).
