  • Beautiful in Its Time

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 28, 2013 Category: Articles

    Hi, I'm RC, and I'm a nostalgia addict. I've been attending meetings for at least twenty years. Why, I remember back in the day, at those first meetings… Keep Reading
  • The Wife of Your Youth

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 21, 2013 Category: Articles

    It was a heartbreaking comment from my heartbroken son. Two years after her passing Campbell posted this... Keep Reading
  • What Do Protestants Protest?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 14, 2013 Category: Articles

    Sadly in our day, not much of anything. Luther, of course, began the Reformation by posting his 95 theses. His chief concern was the sale of indulgences. Underscoring that concern were two principle concerns—the singular authority of the Bible, and the doctrine of justification by faith alone. Luther, along with the other magisterial Reformers, argued that the Bible is our alone ultimate authority in binding our conscience with respect to our faith and practice. It denied that the church provided either a compelling interpretation of the Bible, or a second source of infallible information. (For an outstanding exposition of this issue see my friend and colleague Keith Mathison's The Shape of Sola Scriptura.) Keep Reading
  • 10 Things I Would Tell My 18 Year Old Self

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Dec 07, 2013 Category: Articles

    We all have regrets. We look back at forks in the road behind us and wonder where we might be now had we chosen more wisely back then. Every misstep, however, is an opportunity to learn, to follow more faithfully in Jesus' footsteps. How gracious that our Lord not only covers our folly, but is able to grow wisdom out of it? Below are ten things the now me would seek to impress into the stubborn mind of the then me. Keep Reading
  • My Favorite Passage

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Nov 23, 2013 Category: Articles

    In the space of just 39 months I went from being a family of one to being a family of four. In just another 33 months I was part of a family of six. The g-force wrought by the acceleration of the size of my family blew the hair right off the top of my head. We went from six to ten at a more genteel pace, adding the final four over the course of nine years. It's been a great ride. Keep Reading
  • What is R2K Theology?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Nov 16, 2013 Category: Articles

    An aspiring theology wonk can often find himself swimming in a bewildering ocean of acronyms. Since we no longer debate our theology over the course of hours, but often do so using only our thumbs, shorthand is valuable, but challenging. Just when you realized the role of iaoc to npp and fv (that is, the imputation of the active obedience of Christ to the New Perspective on Paul and Federal Vision), now comes R2k. Keep Reading
  • Is It Your Hope That Reformation Bible College Will Become a New “Christian Harvard?”

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Nov 09, 2013 Category: Articles

    Not only is that not my hope, but I actively hope and pray against such a conception. Christian, yes, Harvard, no. What, I wonder, do we actually mean when we are hoping for a "Christian Harvard?" A judgment of charity would assume we all agree on the "Christian" part. What we mean is an institution that is faithful to all that the Bible teaches. What Christian wouldn't want that? Keep Reading
  • Why Did God Command the Children of Israel to Kill Every Man, Woman, and Child in the Promised Land?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Nov 02, 2013 Category: Articles

    Among the countless nuggets of wisdom I have received over the years from my father is this bit of gold—when you are reading your Bible and you come across something that makes you uncomfortable, resist the temptation to simply move on to something else. Where the Bible makes us uncomfortable is precisely where we need to slow down. It is compelling evidence of a specific weakness. When our thoughts or feelings bristle under God's Word, He is right and we wrong. Keep Reading
