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

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 15, 2011 Category: Articles

    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.

  • Does the Bible say anything about cremation?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 02, 2011 Category: Articles

    No. Cremation, however, may have something to say about the Bible. The proper handling of human bodies after death is not something the Bible expressly deals with.  There are sundry ceremonial laws in the Old Covenant about touching dead bodies, but no instruction on what to do with these bodies. As such we need to be careful not to condemn what the Bible does not condemn. How though, could cremation speak to the Bible? Keep Reading
