  • Ministering by the Life-Giving Spirit

    from Tim Challies Mar 15, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Following a 1970s Jesus Movement conversion, I served in youth ministry, where I subjected poor students to nearly every fad imaginable — all, I told myself, to have young people come to Christ. I then served as a pastor, an office I have held for thirty years. Along the way, I have made many blunders — far too many to chronicle here. One mistake that I hope to avoid, however, is ministering with external methods that cannot give life. Keep Reading

  • The Goodness of the Law

    from Tim Challies Mar 10, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his contribution to this month's issue of Tabletalk, R.C. Sproul wonders how the psalmist can have such great love for God's law. "'Oh how I love your law!' (Ps. 119:97). What a strange statement of affection. Why would anyone direct his love toward the law of God? The law limits our choices, restricts our freedom, torments our consciences, and pushes us down with a mighty weight that cannot be overcome, and yet the psalmist declares his affection for the law in passionate terms. He calls the law sweeter than honey to his mouth (Ps. 119:3)." Keep Reading
  • Our Liberating God

    from Tim Challies Mar 03, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    Why would anyone love the law of God? Why would we love that which constantly tells us what miserable wretches we are, daily points out all our shortcomings, relentlessly reminds us of all our death-deserving sins, and keeps knocking us down to our knees, leaving us crying out for help?  Keep Reading

  • Elders for the Church

    from Tim Challies Feb 22, 2011 Category: Articles

    Phil Newton writes, "Over the past decade I’ve engaged a wide-range of Christians on the subject of elders. Some, in desperation, want to change dysfunctional church leadership structures. Others have grown tired of side-stepping the biblical teaching on elders. Some long to adopt elder leadership yet realize many of their congregants would resist change. A mission leader told me that elder plurality was a major issue in his region; nationals, unfamiliar with traditions and arguments against elder plurality, saw it in Scripture and wanted to obey."

  • R.C. Sproul’s Starter List for Reading the Bible

    from Tim Challies Feb 20, 2011 Category: R.C. Sproul

    In the fall of 2008, Reformation Trust Publishing re-released a revised and expanded version of Dr. Sproul's 5 Things Every Christian Needs to Grow. In that book, R.C. recommends a starter list for people who have never read the Bible. It is quite a helpful list that gives a bird's eye overview of the flow of Scripture. Keep Reading
