  • Justification: The Heart of the Gospel

    from Nathan W. Bingham Aug 30, 2011 Category: Articles

    For the Apostle Paul, the doctrine of justification was the heart of the gospel (Rom. 1 :17; 3:21-5:21; Gal. 2:15-5:1). Martin Luther declared that justification was the doctrine by which "the church either stands or falls." R.C.

Reformed theology reveals just how awesome the grace of God is. In this series, Dr. Sproul offers an introduction to Reformed theology, the heart of historical evangelicalism. This week you can get this CD series for a donation of any amountKeep Reading

  • Well Enough to Complain

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Aug 26, 2011 Category: Articles

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. When we are in fear for our lives, there is precious little we aren’t willing to go through to make it out alive. We will endure long hardship. We will put up with humiliating procedures. We will grit our teeth through pain. We will bite bullets, all hoping to get to that place where the worry will subside, and we can move forward knowing we’re going to be okay. At which point we go back to normal; we begin again to grumble against the smallest irritants, buck against the simplest requests and refuse the mildest indignities. Keep Reading

    from Tim Challies Aug 25, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Here is how Mike Polman begins his article from this month's issue of Tabletalk: "I recently sat with my wife in the waiting room at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. We were there to meet with Dr. Lupe Salazar to receive the results of Julia’s latest PET/CT scans. The goal: to determine if the cancer was progressing. This drill is an example of our “new normal” since the diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer on Mother’s Day weekend in 2009." Keep Reading
