  • Deeds Over Creeds

    from Gary L. W. Johnson Sep 07, 2009 Category: Articles

    Pastor's Perspective The English Reformer Hugh Latimer once remarked, "We ought never to regard unity so much that we would or should forsake God's Word for her sake." Wise words from a man who went to the stake, rather than compromise the truth of the gospel. Keep Reading
  • Reaping the Benefits of the Law

    from R.C. Sproul Sep 06, 2009 Category: Articles

    Let's continue the experiment we began in the previous meditation. Study the excerpts from the apostle Paul that accompany this reading. Does this sound like a man who believed the law of God has no place in the Christian life? Read Paul's writings carefully and you will find a man whose heart longed for the law of God as much as David's. Keep Reading
  • Longing for God’s Law

    A survey by George Gallup Jr. revealed a startling trend in our culture. According to Gallup, the evidence seems to indicate that there are no clear behavioral patterns that distinguish Christians from non-Christians in our society. We all seem to be marching to the same drummer, looking to the shifting standards of contemporary culture for the basis of what is acceptable conduct. What everybody else is doing seems to be our only ethical norm. Keep Reading
  • Pursuing God

    Albert Einstein was once asked by a student, "Dr. Einstein, how many feet are there in a mile?" To the utter astonishment of the student, Einstein replied, "I don't know." The student was sure the great professor was joking. Surely Einstein would know a simple fact that every schoolchild is required to memorize. But Einstein wasn't joking. Keep Reading
  • True Catholicism

    from Burk Parsons Sep 02, 2009 Category: Articles

    Coram Deo: Living Before the Face of God We have all heard it said, and some of you have even said it: "Let's just agree to disagree." If memory serves me, I have never used that expression, primarily because I don't think it makes much sense and because I think people who use the expression don't make much sense when they use it in their attempt to end disagreements. Nevertheless, I think I know what people mean by the expression. Keep Reading
  • Enjoying Communion with God

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 29, 2009 Category: Articles

    When the disciples walked the road to Emmaus twenty centuries ago, Jesus concealed His identity so that they didn't recognize the "stranger" at their side. These men were not in a garden. There were no roses covered with dew. But they walked and talked with the risen Christ. What was their experience like? When their eyes were finally opened and they recognized Jesus, He suddenly vanished and they said to one another, "Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?" (Luke 24:32, NASB). Keep Reading
  • Receiving the Revelation

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 27, 2009 Category: Articles

    Does nature reveal God? This question indicates a concern about a foundational issue to Christianity. The issue is, can God be known outside of the church or a religious environment? Keep Reading

  • Recognizing that the Earth Is the Lord’s

    from R.C. Sproul Aug 25, 2009 Category: Articles

    It was Bonaventure who offered the thought: "In order that we may be able to extol and glorify God, and in order that we may advance to the knowledge of God, we must transfer to the divine that which pertains to the creature . . . nearly all creatures possess certain noble characteristics which furnish a source for our understanding of God, e.g., the lion possesses fortitude; the lamb, meekness; the rock, solidity; the serpent, prudence--hence it is necessary that many names be transferred to God."
