  • Can I Know God’s Will?

    from R.C. Sproul May 19, 2009 Category: Articles

    Alice in Wonderland came to a fork in the road. Icy panic stung her as she stood frozen by indecision. She lifted her eyes toward heaven, looking for guidance. Her eyes did not find God, only the Cheshire cat leering at her from his perch in the tree above. "Which way should I go?" blurted Alice. Keep Reading
  • Study Theology at Home with Ligonier Academy

    from Keith Mathison May 18, 2009 Category: Ligonier Academy

    Every Christian is a theologian. Not all Christians are professional theologians, but we are all theologians because we are all thinking and learning about the things of God. The question is not whether we are theologians or not, but whether we are good theologians or bad theologians. Because our theology affects every aspect of our lives, from our worship to our work, it is vitally important that we be good theologians. Keep Reading

  • Dealing with Differences

    from Roger Nicole May 15, 2009 Category: Articles

    We are called upon by the Lord to contend earnestly for the faith (Jude 3). But that does not necessarily involve being contentious; it involves avoiding compromise, standing forth for what we believe, standing forth for the truth of God -- without welching at any particular moment. Thus, we are bound to meet, at various points and various levels, people with whom we disagree. Keep Reading
  • The Lord of the Church

    from John MacArthur May 14, 2009 Category: Articles

    The truth that Christ is Lord of His church may sound somewhat benign to a casual listener in our generation, but the struggle for Christ's authority in the church has come to us through the ages on a sea of blood. Thankfully, literal bloodshed over the issue is no longer very common. But faithful Christians are still waging a fierce moral and intellectual battle for Christ's lordship over the church.

  • Take Time to Focus on Family This Summer

    from Karisa Schlehr May 13, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    School is almost out, and summertime is just around the corner. While taking a break from the hustle and bustle of a regular routine and the busyness of life, it can be easy to take a break from our biblical studies as well. Keep Reading
  • The Letter to the Church in Laodicea

    from Mark Bates May 12, 2009 Category: Articles

    The pipes in our home sprung a series of leaks. Since most of my neighbors had replaced their plumbing, I knew it was time for me to do the same. However, hiring a plumber to do this would cost thousands of dollars. My friend, Monte, had just repiped his house himself and offered to help me with mine. I am not a handyman, but I am a tightwad. So, I figured, he could be the plumber and I could be the plumber's helper. Within a week, I had a new plumbing system. Keep Reading
  • Divine Immutability and the Doctrines of Grace (pt. 5)

    from John MacArthur May 10, 2009 Category: Articles

    In 1 Corinthians 15:25-28, we find a remarkable conclusion to this whole discussion. There Paul says, "For he [Christ] must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For 'God has put all things in subjection under his feet.' But when it says, 'all things are put in subjection,' it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all." Keep Reading
  • Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of 1 Peter

    from Keith Mathison May 09, 2009 Category: Articles

    It appears that the first epistle of Peter was written by the apostle from Rome sometime around A.D. 62-63, immediately before severe persecution began under Nero. The letter was written to Christians in Asia Minor (1:1) who were already suffering for their Christian faith. There are a number of helpful commentaries on the Book of 1 Peter, and the following are five of the best. Keep Reading
