  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 8 - R.C. Sproul

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Sproul brought the conference to a close with a message entitled He Is Risen! -- The Resurrection and Worship. Dr. Sproul read from Exodus 19, the preamble to the giving of the Decalogue. Imagine that you were there: "On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast." And Moses was told to warn the people, "lest they break through to the Lord to look and many of them perish." Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 7 - Alistair Begg

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Begg returned to the pulpit to bring a message entitled In the Likeness of His Resurrection -- The Bodily Resurrection of the Believer, taking his text from 2 Corinthians 5. He then read a portion of a message that a pastor might deliver at a funeral.  A text that affirms not just the continuity of life, but the resurrection of the physical body.  The Christian's view of death and resurrection ought to be a great apologetic in our day.  There is a reason why graveyards used to be near churches. It makes sense. We have the anticipation of a new heavens and a new earth to look forward to.  Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 6 - Q&A - Begg, Horton, Sproul

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    "What do you think of Barth's view of the resurrection?" HORTON: Barth was considered a fundamentalist among his contemporaries for believing in the bodily resurrection. Others have been more clear.  Many in Germany and in Switzerland at the time denied either the virgin birth or the bodily resurrection or both. Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 5 - Michael Horton

    from Alex Chediak Sep 26, 2009 Category: Events

    Michael Horton began his message reading Paul's Mars Hill sermon from Acts 17.  He then cited a recent Newsweek article from Lisa Miller.  Ms. Miller opined "we're all Hindus now" and her reasoning was (in part) that we all believe in the continuity of life (into an afterlife stage where we play on harps in the clouds, and that sort of thing).  Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 4 - R.C. Sproul

    from Alex Chediak Sep 25, 2009 Category: Events

    In 1965 we had our first son (our daughter was three years old).  My mother was very happy.  She had just received the dress she would be wearing to my ordination ceremony (scheduled to occur 10 days later).  We talked that night, and then she went to sleep.  That night she died in her sleep. I had spoken to her within 8 hours of the moment that I discovered her dead.  Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 3 - Q&A - Begg, Horton, Sproul

    from Alex Chediak Sep 25, 2009 Category: Events

    For Dr. Horton:  "You said that we are not an extension of Christ's kingdom.  How does that cohere with our being the body of Christ?  Our being the hands and feet of Christ, as it were?" Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 2 - Michael Horton

    from Alex Chediak Sep 25, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Horton read from Acts 1 (the sequel to the gospel of Luke), verses 1 through 11.  The ascension is actually part of the gospel.  It is part and parcel with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The disciples, even after the resurrection, were confused:  "Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" They were basically thinking, "Now that He's been resurrected, why would he leave?" Keep Reading
  • 2009 West Coast Conference - Session 1 - Alistair Begg

    from Alex Chediak Sep 25, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Begg began by noting that he often images people singing songs.  The disciples on the road to Emmaus might have thought to themselves "it's all over now."  They were speaking about the events of Jesus in the past tense. "But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel."  The Old Testament pointed to the coming of a prophetpar excellence. But at this point the disciples were both amazed and confused.

    from Karisa Schlehr Aug 04, 2009 Category: Events

    Have you ever stopped to genuinely contemplate the significance of the resurrection? Do you think of it as simply the reason for a spring holiday or as the event upon which Christianity stands or falls? Keep Reading
