  • Saved by Grace - Ligonier Leadership Conference (IX)

    from Keith Mathison Oct 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    "When we exalt God's holiness and put man in his rightful place, we magnify grace." --Steve Lawson, "Saved by Grace," Ligonier Leadership Conference. It seems to be common knowledge among "enlightened" Christians that grace is somehow exalted when we soften the holiness of God and diminish the wrath of God, while at the same time elevating our view of man. As Dr. Lawson reminds us in his lecture today, the exact opposite is the truth. Keep Reading
  • Resembling God - Ligonier Leadership Conference (VIII)

    from Chris Donato Oct 21, 2009 Category: Articles

    "Mankind is made to resemble God. What, then, does it mean to be made in the image of God?" --Ligon Duncan, "Created in God's Image," Ligonier Leadership Conference.  The question quoted above is that which Dr. Duncan sought to answer throughout his second discussion at the Ligonier leadership conference. His answer was full-orbed, challenging, and thought-provoking. Among the many great points, one in particular stood out: "We are to represent God's ownership and interests in His creation." How glorious--and yet so daunting. Keep Reading
  • Exercising Your Power of Choice

  • Rediscovering the Law

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 17, 2009 Category: Articles

    Israel's reformation came via a rediscovery of the law, which created a brief awakening to the bankruptcy of a corrupt nation. As a young man, King Josiah began the process of reformation with a spiritual purge, a cleansing of pagan elements from the religious life of the nation. Keep Reading
  • Obsolete Media Goes Global

    from Marty Banzhaf Oct 14, 2009 Category: Articles

    Ligonier media resources have a long history in their global outreach. It is a great joy for the ministry to be able to contribute hundreds of resources from obsolete inventory and find an inexpensive way of distribution. DVDs, CDs, and MP3s are the media formats of the twenty-first century, yet this technology does not extend worldwide. As globalization has provided new media technology, still old media equipment for VHS and audio cassettes exist en masse and are kept operational in both urban and rural areas of underdeveloped countries.  Keep Reading
  • Teenage Rebellion

    from Keith Mathison Oct 13, 2009 Category: Articles

    Tolle Lege: Take Up and Read
    Let's do a quick word association test. What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you see or hear the word teenager? Sadly, for many, the first words that come to mind are entirely negative. The word teenager brings to their mind other words such as lazy, apathetic, irresponsible, rude, know-it-all, and so on. Most people today have very low expectations for teenagers in general, and too many have low expectations for their own teenagers in particular. Teenagers themselves recognize these low expectations, and many live down to them -- sleeping in and sliding by. Not all teenagers, however, are so complacent. Keep Reading
  • To Whom Be the Glory?

    from Robert Barnes Oct 12, 2009 Category: Articles

    Pastor's Perspective
    I'm a confessional Calvinist, but I have the nagging sense that God slipped up when he allowed me to pastor a church. A number of questions go through my mind as I consider God's decision to allow me to pastor at Dayspring Church (PCA). Is the church in such dire straits that I can actually be a help to her? Are things that bad? Or am I so ineffectual in my administration, my leadership, my influence, that I have not the will or ability to harm a church? Or perhaps, in the best of worlds, the postmillennial folks are right and the church, while gimpy, is steadily limping towards victory such that dragging one more weak pastor along will hardly slow her progress. But even that positive spin doesn't help me -- it still looks like I'm not up for the job. Keep Reading
