  • A Primer on Legalism

    from Nathan W. Bingham Sep 02, 2011 Category: Articles

    The New Testament views Christian obedience as the practice of "good works." Christians are to be "rich in good works" (1 Tim. 6:18; cf. Matt. 5:16; Eph. 2:10; 2 Tim. 3:17; Titus 2:7, 14; 3:8, 14).

  • 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. Sproul's mentor John Gerstner goes further in reminding us that it's not only the church that stands or falls by this doctrine, "but the individual also." Keep 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
