  • Secularism: Ignoring the Eternal (pt. 1)

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

    Students of history realize that no society can survive, no civilization can function, without some unifying system of thought. All societies are made up of different people, different jobs, different values, and different classes. In a broad sense, all societies are melting pots. Keep Reading
  • Are You Seeing a Pattern?

    from John MacArthur Jan 25, 2009 Category: Articles

    Preachers are men--that's all. And men are not perfect, so there is no hope of perfection in the ministry. If God could not use poor instruments and feeble voices, He couldn't make music. Abraham was guilty of duplicity, yet he became the man of faith and the friend of God. Moses was a man of stuttering speech and a quick temper, yet he was the one chosen to lead a nation, to represent them before God, and to receive His law and deliver it to them. David was guilty of adultery, conspiracy, murder, and unfaithfulness as a husband and father, but he repented and was regarded as a man after God's own heart. Keep Reading
  • 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
  • So What Makes the Reformation Study Bible Different?

    from Keith Mathison Jan 22, 2009 Category: Ligonier Resources

    Anyone who steps into a Christian bookstore or opens a Christian book catalog is immediately struck by the large number of Study Bibles available. There are specialty Study Bibles, such as The Literary Study Bible, the Apologetics Study Bible, and the Archaeological Study Bible. There are Study Bibles geared to application (Life Application Study Bible) and Study Bibles geared to word-study (The Thompson Chain-Reference Study Bible). There are also Study Bibles prepared by well-known pastors and teachers (The MacArthur Study Bible). Keep Reading
  • Abortion: The Moral Issue of Our Day

    from R.C. Sproul Jan 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court came to a verdict in the case of Roe v. Wade, the case that legalized abortion. This case is still as controversial today as it was in 1973 and continues to be in the forefront of our day. 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
