  • 2011 National Conference - Session 9 (R.C. Sproul)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    Humans in all cultures have an affinity for clothing and a sense that nakedness is shameful. We see this, for example, in the behavior of Noah's sons (Shem and Japheth) who covered their father's nakedness while not looking upon him.  Adam and Eve, when they sinned, had to be clothed by God himself in this first act of redemption.  One of the indications of our culture's decadence is the lack of shame in nakedness (i.e., the prevalence of fornication, even among some regular church attendees).

  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 7 (Steven Lawson)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    This address from Pastor Steve Lawson was entitled Worshiping the Triune God. Worship in heaven is worship at its best. Pleasing God, not others, is what matters in worship.  But there is a new way in worship in our day—one that seeks to please the unconverted person, to be cool, not transcendent and reverent. The preacher, likewise, is be trendy, not weighty, and more therapeutic than theological worship, however, should be a foretaste of heaven. Let's take a look at the worship of heaven in Revelation 4.

  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 5 (R.C. Sproul)

    from Tim Challies Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    R.C. Sproul began the second day of the Ligonier Ministries National Conference with a talk titled “Defending the Faith.” This was a talk on apologetics, reminding us that every Christian is responsible to be able to defend the faith. Dr. Sproul spoke at length about Augustine and Augustine’s attempts to defend the symbiotic relationship between faith and reason. Augustine wanted to reach an assurance of our faith that is at the level of certainty. Today most apologists believe that philosophical certainty about issues like the existence of God is a fool’s errand doomed to failure. Augustine did not share that view and neither does Sproul.

    After a break, the 2011 Ligonier National Conference continued with Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson, senior minister of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, S.C., and a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow, speaking on “Why the God-Man?” One of the great books on Jesus Christ was written by Anselm of Canterbury around the end of the eleventh century. It was titled Cur Deus Homo? (“Why the God-Man?). It is notable because of Anselm’s emphasis that the atonement brought redemption to man because it satisfied God. Keep Reading

    from Alex Chediak Mar 24, 2011 Category: Events

    SUMMARY In every era of history, the holiness of God has been under assault. Satan is the original antagonist against God. The principle attack of Satan against the holiness of God is aimed at impugning and assaulting the character of His being and His word. Keep Reading
