  • All Who Hate Me Love Death

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Aug 17, 2013 Category: Articles

    Because we willfully prefer to live in a make-believe world of sterile denial we do not believe what God has told us. We are haters of God, and lovers of death. That's not poetry, but cold, sober-minded calculation. Keep Reading
  • Running the Race: A Parable on Infusion and Imputation

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Aug 10, 2013 Category: Articles

    Suppose, for the sake of argument, that the God of heaven and earth were a fan of long distance running. Suppose that the only way into His blessed presence, the only way to enjoy those pleasures forevermore that are at His right hand, is if you run a marathon. Not just any marathon, but the world's most grueling marathon, the kind of marathon where, like the original, the runner collapses dead when it is over. Keep Reading
  • Why Do You Write?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Aug 03, 2013 Category: Articles

    To make manifest the kingdom of God. My goal is change, to change me, those who read my pieces, and the world. My desire is that I, and those who read my pieces would become more like Jesus. And that the pieces themselves would show us who He is. Keep Reading
  • Sinner in the Hand of Angry Saints

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 27, 2013 Category: Articles

    One of the weaknesses that may come from communicating via social media is that we not only speak in short hand, but react in short hand. That is, our answers haven't the time or characters to be nuanced, and so neither is the thought that goes into them. Keep Reading

  • All Grown Up

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 20, 2013 Category: Articles

    Some gracious soul in my high school class today invited me to be a part of its Facebook group. Nothing unusual there. The motive for the invite, while not universally unusual, is still rather shocking to me. Keep Reading

  • Misreading Living Epistles

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 22, 2013 Category: Articles

    Though it is understandable that we do so, it is important that we learn to distinguish between the thoughts that we have, and the act, or even the ability, to communicate those thoughts. Possessing faith, for instance, is necessary for salvation, for rescue from the wrath of God. Professing that faith, on the other hand, while ordinarily a good and important thing, is not, strictly speaking, necessary. I came to learn that value of this distinction when God sent me Shannon.

  • In Which I Confess to Being a Fan Boy

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 15, 2013 Category: Articles

    There is I suspect a difference between being grateful and being a fan boy. God has blessed the church with all manner of godly men who preach and teach faithful to the Word. My own desire is to cultivate deeper gratitude while avoiding the awkwardness of being a fan boy. But I suppose part of the point of being a fan boy is you just can't help it. And I can't help it. Dr. Sinclair Ferguson is all that, the bomb-diggity, my homeboy. Keep Reading
  • Lawless Law

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jun 08, 2013 Category: Articles

    We find ethical relativism appealing because we find our own guilt unappealing. Though we seek to suppress such knowledge, we all know that God is, that He is holy, that we are not, and that we are in trouble. Not the kind of pleasant thoughts one wants to go to sleep thinking on, so we suppress that truth. Do away with ethics and we do away with His holiness, our guilt, and therefore our trouble.
