  • If a Leader Falls

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Oct 08, 2011 Category: Articles

    If a man in leadership falls into sin, admits it, repents and turns from it, should he ever lead again in the same role? Keep Reading
  • Do the Creeds Really Matter?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Oct 01, 2011 Category: Articles

    Of course they do. Reformed theology has always held to a balanced view of the value and importance of church history and historical theology. Unlike Rome and eastern Orthodoxy we deny that tradition is a second source of infallible information, or even that church history can give us an infallible understanding of biblical revelation. Contra the Anabaptists, however, we affirm the great import of the wisdom of our fathers. To turn aside from what the church has always taught is fraught with danger. We affirm that God purifies His church in space and time, and that especially the ecumenical creeds can provide for us guidelines for what constitutes orthodoxy.  Keep Reading
  • The Days of the Dead

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Sep 27, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    September 11, 2001, was, in many respects, a rather ordinary day. I began the day working at my desk, writing. But my plans quickly changed. Many of us spent hours staring not at our computer screens but at our television screens. We were stunned, staggered, overcome with disbelief. Keep Reading
  • There’s Someone Wrong on the Internet

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Sep 24, 2011 Category: Articles

    There have always been men who thought Jesus was coming back on a particular day. There have always been men who believed it quite okay to divorce a wife suffering from Alzheimer’s. There have always been pastors who believe that abortion is an option for moms of conjoined twins. Keep Reading
  • Encouraging One Another

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Sep 17, 2011 Category: Articles

    I write, but I also read. The two actually go hand in hand. To read only is to be a wisdom vortex, to take in but never breath out. To write only is to embrace the folly that wisdom ends with you. Without drinking deeply of the wisdom of others we will soon become clouds without rain. Keep Reading
  • Is Faith a Work?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Sep 12, 2011 Category: Articles

    The Reformation was born out of the biblical conviction that a man is deemed just in the sight of God, forgiven, adopted, not on the basis of his own goodness, but on the basis of the goodness of Christ imputed to him. Not everyone, however, is blessed with this imputation, but only those who trust in that provision, and in that provision alone. Keep Reading
  • Well Enough to Complain

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Aug 26, 2011 Category: Articles

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. When we are in fear for our lives, there is precious little we aren’t willing to go through to make it out alive. We will endure long hardship. We will put up with humiliating procedures. We will grit our teeth through pain. We will bite bullets, all hoping to get to that place where the worry will subside, and we can move forward knowing we’re going to be okay. At which point we go back to normal; we begin again to grumble against the smallest irritants, buck against the simplest requests and refuse the mildest indignities. Keep Reading
