    from Tim Challies May 31, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The month of June is almost upon us, but before turning to that page in the calendar, we'd like to draw your attention to one more article from the May issue of Tabletalk. In that issue R.C. Sproul Jr. penned an article titled "The Children's Crusade." Keep Reading
  • Christian Exiles

    from Tim Challies May 26, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "In a profound sense, this world is not our home. When we are away from our bodies we will be “at home with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8). We are not to be 'conformed to this age' (Rom. 12:2). Our lives 'are hid with Christ in God' (Col. 3:3). We have been 'transferred out of the dominion of darkness into the kingdom of his beloved Son' (Col. 1:13). We have 'passed out of death and into life' (1 John 3:14). We are exiles and strangers here." This truth, that we are exiles in this world, is the basis for John Piper's article in the May issue of Tabletalk magazine. Keep Reading

  • Our Ancient Foe

    from Tim Challies May 17, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Talk of the Devil and spiritual warfare makes some people roll their eyes. We live in an age of particle accelerators, microchips, and organ transplants. The Devil? Why, he’s nothing more than a medieval superstition created to scare naughty children. We can’t take any of that seriously. Keep Reading
  • Schism and the Local Church

    from Tim Challies May 12, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "Although the Great Schism occurred in the eleventh century, dealing with schismatic people in the local church has been a problem since the days of the apostles." This problem is the theme of Michael Brown's article in the current issue of Tabletalk. "Schism is a division within or split from a church. It occurs in a congregation or denomination when a faction is formed on the basis of something other than the faith once for all delivered to the saints. It is distinguished from heresy, which is false teaching about doctrine. While heresies can (and often do) lead to schisms, most schisms in the local church do not involve heresy. They usually erupt from some 'quarrel over opinions' (Rom. 14:1) in matters not essential to the faith." Keep Reading
  • Anselm

    from Tim Challies May 05, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "Anselm held the position of archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 to 1109. A Benedictine monk, philosopher, and theologian, he stands as one of the most significant thinkers in the history of the Western church." While Anselm's name is widely known, his impact is not. In his article in the current edition of Tabletalk magazine, R.C. Sproul looks at this man's life and influence. Keep Reading
  • An 11th Century Reformer

    from Tim Challies May 03, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In this month's editorial introduction to the May issue of Tabletalk--an issue that looks to the church of the 11th century--Burk Parsons writes about a little-known Christian monarch. "Queen Margaret of Scotland (c. 1045–1093) is barely mentioned in the annals of church history. Nevertheless, she was used of God mightily in eleventh-century Scotland. While the first crusade raged, while schism rent the church in the East, and while Anselm ministered in her homeland of England, Margaret was on her knees praying earnestly for her husband, the king of Scotland."

  • Killing Anger

    from Tim Challies Apr 29, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his column in the April edition of Tabletalk, John Piper writes this: "In marriage, anger rivals lust as a killer. My guess is that anger is a worse enemy than lust. It also destroys other kinds of camaraderie. Some people have more anger than they think, because it has disguises. When willpower hinders rage, anger smolders beneath the surface, and the teeth of the soul grind with frustration. It can come out in tears that look more like hurt. But the heart has learned that this may be the only way to hurt back." Keep Reading
