  • A Christian Terrorist in Norway?

    from Keith Mathison Jul 26, 2011 Category: Articles

    Last Friday (July 22, 2011), a bomb went off in Oslo killing eight people and injuring many more. Soon afterward, a gunman went on a shooting spree at an island youth camp in Norway, killing 68 people. The gunman was arrested and later claimed responsibility for both attacks. Political terrorism has not been unusual in the twentieth and twenty-first century, but this attack hits home for those of us who claim to be Christian because Breivik has identified himself as one of us on his Facebook page.  Keep Reading
  • Can I Tell My Child That Jesus Loves Them?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 23, 2011 Category: Articles

    Is it right to tell my child that Jesus loves them?  Yes, no, no and yes. First, we rightly affirm that there is a form of love that God has for each and every living human. We all bear His image and that is sufficient to elicit His love in a certain sense.  Sometimes called His love of benevolence, the Bible teaches that God has a general good will toward men, such as was announced to the shepherds at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:14).

  • What Are We to Make of the Casey Anthony Decision?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 15, 2011 Category: Articles

    Nothing. A little girl died. She might have been murdered. It might have been an accident. It might have been somewhere in between. Her mother may be a murderer, or she may merely be a slightly more dramatic sinner than most of us.  She came by her sin naturally, inheriting it from her parents, just like the rest of us. Her verdict may have been a mistake, a travesty of justice, a regrettable inevitability, or the right thing. I don’t know, and I suspect, neither do any of you.  Keep Reading
  • Does Natural Law Exist?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 09, 2011 Category: Articles

    Does Natural Law Exist?  No, and yes.  One of my favorite writers, CS Lewis, in one of my favorite books, The Abolition of Man makes a very bad argument for a very bad understanding of natural law. The entire last third of the book is devoted to an exposition of the Tao, which he describes as a universal moral law by which God Himself is bound.  The notion that there is a law, or anything above God, to which He must submit is heretical, broadly speaking a form or idolatry. There is no law above God. He alone is a law unto Himself.  In this sense there is no such thing as natural law.   Keep Reading
