  • 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
  • Can I Tell My Child That Jesus Loves Them?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 23, 2011 Category: Articles

    Is it right to tell my child that Jesus loves them?  Yes, no, no and yes. First, we rightly affirm that there is a form of love that God has for each and every living human. We all bear His image and that is sufficient to elicit His love in a certain sense.  Sometimes called His love of benevolence, the Bible teaches that God has a general good will toward men, such as was announced to the shepherds at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:14).

  • What Are We to Make of the Casey Anthony Decision?

    Nothing. A little girl died. She might have been murdered. It might have been an accident. It might have been somewhere in between. Her mother may be a murderer, or she may merely be a slightly more dramatic sinner than most of us.  She came by her sin naturally, inheriting it from her parents, just like the rest of us. Her verdict may have been a mistake, a travesty of justice, a regrettable inevitability, or the right thing. I don’t know, and I suspect, neither do any of you.  Keep Reading
  • Does Natural Law Exist?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 09, 2011 Category: Articles

    Does Natural Law Exist?  No, and yes.  One of my favorite writers, CS Lewis, in one of my favorite books, The Abolition of Man makes a very bad argument for a very bad understanding of natural law. The entire last third of the book is devoted to an exposition of the Tao, which he describes as a universal moral law by which God Himself is bound.  The notion that there is a law, or anything above God, to which He must submit is heretical, broadly speaking a form or idolatry. There is no law above God. He alone is a law unto Himself.  In this sense there is no such thing as natural law.   Keep Reading

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 25, 2011 Category: Articles
