  • Evangelizing the World

    from Lane Keister Jun 08, 2009 Category: Articles

    All people are supposed to hear the good news of Jesus Christ crucified and resurrected from the dead. Not only are all people supposed to hear that salvation has been accomplished in history, they are to hear that any who repent of their sin and turn in faith to Jesus will actually possess the benefits of that accomplished salvation as well. In other words, those who offer the gospel are to sow the seed personally and indiscriminately, and are not to be discouraged when many people reject the message. Keep Reading
  • Trusting God’s Judgment

    from R.C. Sproul Jun 07, 2009 Category: Articles

    If we're children of Christ and we stand before the judgment seat of God on the last day and God says to us, "You're covered by the blood of my Son, and it's a good thing, because you did this, this, this, this, and this," we won't say, "But, Lord, I did this in Your name, I did that in Your name. You really aren't being fair." Keep Reading

  • A Sower Went Out To Sow…

    from Burk Parsons Jun 04, 2009 Category: Articles

    Church historian Mark Noll writes, "In many ways, the defining figure in the history of American evangelicalism is the eighteenth-century revivalist George Whitefield." Prior to America's declaration of independence from England, the Calvinist preacher from England turned the colonies upside down and led America to its knees in the First Great Awakening. Whitefield's passionate preaching drew crowds in the tens of thousands as townspeople went to the fields. Keep Reading

  • Seeking After God

    from R.C. Sproul Jun 03, 2009 Category: Articles

    How many times have you heard Christians say (or heard the words from your own mouth), "So-and-so is not a Christian but he's searching"? It is a common statement among Christians. The idea is that there are people all over the place who are searching for God. Their problem is that they just haven't been able to find Him. He is playing hide-and-seek. He is elusive. Keep Reading
  • The Gnostic Ghosts That Haunt Us

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 02, 2009 Category: Articles

    I was reminded this afternoon of a liturgy within a liturgy that I practice. My two youngest daughters, Erin Claire and Maili had their first dance recital. They are a part of a small ballet group made up of homeschooled little girls in our broader community. They danced beautifully, received their applause, smiled as only little girls can, and came and sat beside me, giving and receiving hugs. The entire rest of the family was there to cheer them on. The second dance troupe was a little older, and they danced to Pachelbel's Canon in D. As they danced I glanced over at my eleven year old daughter Shannon, smiling joyfully as she took in both the music and dancing. She sat there in her wheelchair and rejoiced. Keep Reading

  • The Meaning of God’s Will (pt. 5)

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

    Pursuing knowledge of the will of God is not an abstract science designed to titillate the intellect or to convey the kind of knowledge that "puffs up" but fails to edify. An understanding of the will of God is a desperately important matter for every Christian seeking to live a life that is pleasing to his or her Creator. It is a very practical thing for us to know what God wants for our lives. A Christian asks, "What are my marching orders? What should my role be in contributing to the establishment of the kingdom of God? What does God want me to do with my life?" lt is inconceivable that a Christian could live for very long without coming face-to-face with these gripping questions. Keep Reading
