  • The Christ of the Old and New

    from Tim Challies Apr 05, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "We have all heard the ancient maxim about the relationship between the Old and New Testaments: 'The new is in the old concealed, and the old is in the new revealed.' While the words concealed and revealed do not entirely accurately describe the relationship between the testaments, they do help us grasp the fundamental truth that the New Testament is found in seed form throughout the pages of the Old Testament and that the Old Testament blossoms forth as a flower in the New Testament."

    from Tim Challies Mar 31, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

  • The End of Soap Oprah

    from Tim Challies Mar 29, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The passing of the Oprah Winfrey Show is surely worthy of being described with that most overworked of clichés, as 'the end of an era.' Except, of course, it is not the end of an era so much as the morphing of Ms. Winfrey’s career into a new form. It is hard to imagine that the public has seen the last of her, and the values and culture that her show represented are here for the foreseeable future. Keep Reading
  • Listening Before Answering

    from Tim Challies Mar 24, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    "It is arrogant to answer before you hear. Humility does not presume that it knows precisely what a person is asking until the questioner has finished asking the question. How many times have I jumped to a wrong conclusion by starting to formulate my answer before I heard the whole question! Often it is the last word in the question that turns the whole thing around and makes you realize that the questioner is not asking what you thought he was." Keep Reading
  • It Takes a Church to Raise a Child

    from Tim Challies Mar 17, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    You've got to love the title of this one: "It Takes a Church to Raise a Child." Rev. Mark Bates is senior pastor of Village Seven Presbyterian Church and is a Bible teacher at Evangelical Christian Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. And in the March issue of Tabletalk he writes about parenting saying, "Parenting is not for the faint of heart..." Keep Reading
  • Ministering by the Life-Giving Spirit

    from Tim Challies Mar 15, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Following a 1970s Jesus Movement conversion, I served in youth ministry, where I subjected poor students to nearly every fad imaginable — all, I told myself, to have young people come to Christ. I then served as a pastor, an office I have held for thirty years. Along the way, I have made many blunders — far too many to chronicle here. One mistake that I hope to avoid, however, is ministering with external methods that cannot give life. Keep Reading
  • The Goodness of the Law

    from Tim Challies Mar 10, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his contribution to this month's issue of Tabletalk, R.C. Sproul wonders how the psalmist can have such great love for God's law. "'Oh how I love your law!' (Ps. 119:97). What a strange statement of affection. Why would anyone direct his love toward the law of God? The law limits our choices, restricts our freedom, torments our consciences, and pushes us down with a mighty weight that cannot be overcome, and yet the psalmist declares his affection for the law in passionate terms. He calls the law sweeter than honey to his mouth (Ps. 119:3)." Keep Reading
  • Our Liberating God

    from Tim Challies Mar 03, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Why would anyone love the law of God? Why would we love that which constantly tells us what miserable wretches we are, daily points out all our shortcomings, relentlessly reminds us of all our death-deserving sins, and keeps knocking us down to our knees, leaving us crying out for help?  Keep Reading
