  • Ligonier National Conference - R.C. Sproul - (II)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 15, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. R.C. Sproul's second and final conference message was entitled "Counted Righteous in Christ (Imputation)." He began by reading Genesis 15:1-6, where we learn that Abraham believed God, and God "counted it to him as righteousness." Dr. Sproul then read from Romans 4:1-8, where we see Paul hearkening back to Abraham as "Exhibit A" of how righteousness is obtained before God. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Sinclair Ferguson (II)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 15, 2008 Category: Events

    In his second and final conference message, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson spoke on the theme "The Nature of Saving Faith." Dr. Ferguson took his text from Romans 3:19-4:2, but also read several verses on the results of saving faith from Romans 5. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - R.C. Sproul (I)

    from Tim Challies Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    This afternoon we finally got to hear from R.C. Sproul. He chose to speak from a few verses in Galatians 1 and 2 and said that he has probably preached this message 100 times in the past. He provided a brief defense of the importance of the doctrine of justification by faith alone (or sola fide) and followed that with a short exposition of this doctrine.  Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - C.J. Mahaney

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Pastor Mahaney's topic was "The Resurrection of Jesus" and his text was I Corinthians 15:17.  Although Easter is right around the corner, we tend to keep the topic of death as far away from us as possible. Yet we must remember that our hope as Christians is not in the avoidance of death, but in the triumph of Christ over death. Pastor Mahaney noted that his purpose today was pastoral and personal. He wanted to apply the doctrine of the resurrection to our souls - and specifically as it relates to death. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Sinclair Ferguson (I)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. Ferguson read from Isaiah 53:1- 12. He noted that Isaiah 53 rivals Psalm 110 for maximum New Testament citations, and surpasses Psalm 110 with respect to allusions. Isaiah 53 is the passage that Christ must have turned to again and again. We can hear him saying, "Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?" (Luke 24:26) Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Joni Eareckson Tada (II)

    from Tim Challies Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Yesterday, in a preconference message, Joni Eareckson Tada shared "Good News in a Fallen World." She spoke again this morning and as she so often does, she prefaced her speech with a video and a song and concluded it with another song (in which she was joined by the assembly here). Her exhortation in this speech, built largely on stories from her many years of ministry, was to take the gospel to those near and far. Keep Reading
  • Ligoner National Conference - John MacArthur - We Have Been Raised But We Stink

    from Tim Challies Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    The second day of the conference began with John MacArthur's second and final sermon. His topic was "Simultaneously Righteous and a Sinner" (or, to use the Latin theological term, simul iustus et peccator. He turned first to the well-known story of the raising of Lazarus and on that basis titled his message (rather creatively, I might add), "We Have Been Raised but We Stink." Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Steven Lawson - (II)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Dr. Steven J. Lawson gave his second and final message entitled "The Saving Power of God." Noting that this is the central theme of Romans, Lawson took his text from Rom. 1:1-18. That all power belongs to God is clearly taught in the Bible. We call this the doctrine of divine omnipotence. Lawson quoted numerous passages which describe the boundless power of God. All creation is under the sway of God's power. But greater than God's work in physical creation is His redeeming work in spiritual re-creation. Greater than God's moving mountains is God's moving the stone of sin from human hearts. The cross is the pinnacle of God's saving, redeeming work. Only a God who is All-Powerful can accomplish such a great salvation. Keep Reading
  • Ligonier National Conference - Joni Eareckson Tada (I)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 14, 2008 Category: Events

    Mrs. Eareckson Tada was asked to speak on the subject "Good News in a Fallen World." She noted that evidence of a fallen world is abundant: Governor Spitzer's resignation, shootings on college campuses, a decade of war in the Congo leaving four million dead. About 97% of disabled children in the world are abandoned, starved to death, or maimed to facilitate begging. Dutch doctors sometimes euthanize children for "incurable" diseases such as spinal bifida or Down syndrome. Sixty years ago we hanged German doctors for such things, and today they are done in the name of mercy. Keep Reading
