  • Can You Remember?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 19, 2011 Category: Articles

    Though children tend to see "I forgot" as an excuse, the Bible seems to see it as a condemnation. God is good to us from our births, and we forget. We look forward, waiting and wondering if and when God will give us what we want. In so doing we forget that we got to this point by the grace of God, forgetting His sundry deliverances along the way. We accept the status quo as our rightful starting point, and dare to ask the Lord of heaven and earth, "What have You done for me lately?" Keep Reading
  • Peter Hitchens on Atheism & His Brother’s Death

    from Karisa Schlehr Dec 16, 2011 Category: Articles

    As many of you know by now, outspoken atheist Christopher Hitchens died Thursday night at the age of 62. We were deeply saddened to hear of his passing without any public acknowledgement of repentance and trust in the finished work of Christ. Many Christians are aware of the hostile views of Christopher Hitchens. However, few Christians are aware that his brother, Peter, was also for many years antagonistic toward Christianity and a self-avowed atheist like his brother. Unlike Christopher, however, Peter is a prodigal son who has returned home. In a June 2011 interview with Tabletalk magazine, Peter Hitchens gave us a glimpse into his life and thought as a Christian who was converted from atheism. Keep Reading
  • Praying Friends

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 13, 2011 Category: Articles

    It is not an easy thing to discern where a given soul is headed. The elders of the local church are called with the task of determining the credibility of the professions of those under their care. Because we are all sinners, the presence of sin in a man’s life does not answer the question. Because we all profess Christ, the theological accuracy of ones grasp of the gospel does not answer the question. It is a sticky business indeed. Keep Reading
  • Doing Great Things

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 10, 2011 Category: Articles

    When we first learned that my little girl Shannon would always be a little girl, when we discovered about her first birthday that she was profoundly disabled, my father, a deeply compassionate man asked how I was handling the news. I told him that I had been preparing for this moment all my life. If anyone should be able to rest in the sovereignty of God it is me. The sovereignty of God is the cornerstone of Reformed theology, which theology I have been schooled in from my youth by one of its greatest living proponents. Keep Reading
  • Hope for the Broken

    from Tim Challies Dec 06, 2011 Category: Articles

    Every home is dysfunctional because everyone is sinful. There is no perfect family this side of heaven, and if we were perfect parents, neither we nor our children would need a Savior. When we consider the state of the family at the beginning of the twenty-first century, our tendency is to reflect nostalgically on imagined idyllic days of generations past when families weren’t perfect but pretty close to it, or so we like to think.

  • The Terminal

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 03, 2011 Category: Articles

    The yellowing sky confirmed the wisdom of the forecasters, a tornado might well be just around the bend. With one eye scouring the landscape I dutifully herded my then seven children into our basement. One of them, worried, asked me- “Are we all going to die?” Tender hearted father that I am, I told the truth--“Of course…but probably not today.” We survived the weather that day, but we are all still terminal.
