  • The Godness of God - Ligonier Leadership Conference (III)

    from Robert Rothwell Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Like many people, I did not grow up in a Reformed church, and Calvinism was often used as a dirty word in some of the churches I attended. Although when I was younger I often concurred with that evaluation of Reformed theology, I have to admit that I did find myself wrestling with those biblical passages that portray the absolute sovereignty of the Lord. I also wondered how God could truly be called God if, as I was often taught, He "limited" His sovereignty so that He was not truly in charge of the decisions of men and women. Keep Reading
  • Forgotten Providence - Ligonier Leadership Conference (I)

    from Robert Rothwell Oct 20, 2009 Category: Events

    Dr. Sproul appropriately kicks off Ligonier's Pillars of the Christian Faith leadership conference with a message on creation and providence, which are foundational elements of any worldview, let alone the Christian faith. His message on how we often forget the providence of God ought to strike a chord with all of us.

    When I was about four or five years old, my mother found the letter "F" scribbled in crayon on the hallway wall of our home.

Therefore, my mother asked me who wrote on the wall so that I might come clean about my misdeed. Keep Reading
  • Hero of Heroes

    from Robert Rothwell Feb 05, 2009 Category: Articles

    Unfortunately, it is not too long before we discover that our heroes are just as flawed as we are. History is filled with details of great men and women who succumbed to their flaws and temptations. Regrettably, we find this is true both of the heroes of the kingdom of this world and the heroes of the city of God. Those of us with more than a passing interest in historical theology cannot read too far before the flaws of the greatest theologians in church history come into sharp focus. Keep Reading
  • The Eternal Priesthood

    from Robert Rothwell Dec 15, 2008 Category: Articles

    When I was sixteen years old I became convinced that I was not going to be around much longer. Now before you jump to the conclusion that I had become obsessed with my own demise, I should give the reason why I did not think I had many more days on this earth. It was not because I thought I was going to die at an early age. The reason that I would be going to heaven had nothing to do with my death. Keep Reading
