  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 5 (R.C. Sproul)

    from Tim Challies Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    R.C. Sproul began the second day of the Ligonier Ministries National Conference with a talk titled “Defending the Faith.” This was a talk on apologetics, reminding us that every Christian is responsible to be able to defend the faith. Dr. Sproul spoke at length about Augustine and Augustine’s attempts to defend the symbiotic relationship between faith and reason. Augustine wanted to reach an assurance of our faith that is at the level of certainty. Today most apologists believe that philosophical certainty about issues like the existence of God is a fool’s errand doomed to failure. Augustine did not share that view and neither does Sproul.

    After a break, the 2011 Ligonier National Conference continued with Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson, senior minister of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow, speaking on “Why the God-Man?” One of the great books on Jesus Christ was written by Anselm of Canterbury around the end of the eleventh century. It was titled Cur Deus Homo? (“Why the God-Man?). It is notable because of Anselm’s emphasis that the atonement brought redemption to man because it satisfied God. Keep Reading

  • Listening Before Answering

    from Tim Challies Mar 24, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "It is arrogant to answer before you hear. Humility does not presume that it knows precisely what a person is asking until the questioner has finished asking the question. How many times have I jumped to a wrong conclusion by starting to formulate my answer before I heard the whole question! Often it is the last word in the question that turns the whole thing around and makes you realize that the questioner is not asking what you thought he was." Keep Reading

Though by no means an exhaustive treatment, it is one that is sound and faithful to the Scriptures. This is the sixth part of the series. Dr. Gerstner has looked at four unsound bases for sound doctrine and is now in the midst of a discussion of a sound basis for sound doctrine. Keep Reading
